The Zesshou Hohou (絶招歩法? "Suppressed Engaging Walking Way"), also known informally as the "Lunge Punch", is one of Yun's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter III series. Yang used this move until getting the Torouzan from 2nd Impact onwards.
The name of this move is an expression used for "walking forward without stepping".
DescriptionEditExecuted by performing a quarter-circle forward motion and pressing punch, Yun leans forward and lunges toward the opponent, fist-first, in a leaping stride. The distance of the lunge is determined by the punch button pressed: a heavier punch button means longer distance with bigger startup and recovery time.
The EX Special version has the longest startup, but makes up for this by travelling the entire way across the screen extremely fast, thus covering the distance in a fraction of the time.
All versions of the attack cover distances very quickly and are extremely useful during Yun's Genei Jin technique for repeatedly juggling the opponent. However, as a "forward-sliding" move in terms of hitbox, using this recklessly without proper timing and spacing can easily get Yun punished after this move is blocked or properly dodged in some way.
- This technique is used by Kirei Kotomine in Fate/Unlimited Codes, a Type-Moon product published by Capcom.
- A similar attack, the Sen Shippo (箭疾歩, "Arrow Rapid Step"), appears in many other fighting games, and is executed similar to this attack (with the leading fist used instead). The move is used by characters such as Sie Kensou (The King of Fighters), Tung Fu Rue (Fatal Fury), and Miyako Arima (Melty Blood).
