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.

All appearances Arcade Stick QCF + Arcade Button Punch


Zesshou Hohou

Hitting Chun-Li in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.

Executed 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.


  • The name of this move is an expression used for "to walk forward without stepping".
  • This technique is used by Kirei Kotomine in Fate/Unlimited Codes, one of Type-Moon's works also published by Capcom.
  • The Sen Shippou ("Arrow Rapid Step") in SNK works is similar to this attack only done with the leading fist instead of the following fist, used by Sie Kensou (The King of Fighters) and Tung Fu Rue (Fatal Fury). The Sen Shippou is also used by Miyako Arima from Melty Blood (also made by Type-Moon), who also uses certain kenpo attacks from SNK and Capcom works along with Kirei. Miyako however, does it differently where she instead punches forward just as she lands from her hop.
    • In the penultimate volume of manga Love Hina, protagonist Keitarou Urashima performs a Sen Shippou in his fight against Professor Noriyasu Seta.
    • Also from SNK, Gatou Futaba from Garou Mark of the Wolves and King of Fighters also has his own variation of the Sen Shippou called the Totsuga ("Thrust Fang"), a followup move from his Shinga ("Quake Fang").
    • In the Bleach DS game, Dark Souls, Shuuhei Hisagi also has his own version of the Sen Shippou, and like Miyako's version, it is done differently, but still has the fist extended for the duration of the hop.
