Kanzuki Style Martial Arts[1], also known as Kanzuki-ryu Kakutojutsu or just Kanzuki-ryu[2], refers to an original martial art style created by Karin Kanzuki.

Description Edit

Karin has a wide array of strikes, throws and potent reversals, and she prides herself on being able to handle any opponent she faces. She prefers to keep her opponents guessing by varying the speed of her attacks, and also makes them second-guess their own choice of moves for fear of her powerful counterattacks.

She is well versed in various forms of Bushido, military arts, and "combative sports". This was probably mistranslated from a term that meant "combat sports", which includes various events (e.g. Japanese pro wrestling and Mixed Martial Arts groups). The sum of all her accomplishments in the field of martial arts is equivalent to 100 dan and 8 kyu (the Japanese ranking system for martial arts, among other things).[citation needed]

Trivia Edit

  • According to the Sakura Ganbaru! manga, Kanzuki-ryū kakutōjutsu is actually a combination of various martial arts, including karate, judo, aikido, sambo, muay thai, taekwondo, amateur wrestling, koppo, Shaolin kung fu, tai chi chuan, bagua-zhang, etc.[citation needed]
  • Although the style is officialy explained as the result of a mixture of several disciplines, it strongly resembles the Chinese martial art style of Bajiquan, also called Hakkyokuken in Japanese, as identifiable by it's trademark elbow attacks, palm rushes and shoulder smashes.
