The Splendid Seven’s Five Deadliest Martial Arts

Greetings, Splendid Seven devotees and martial arts aficionados. Antoni here with another written entry focusing on Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specialising in the martial arts they do and have defined them as fighters and as individuals. Today, I will be delving into the five main martial arts I highly convict Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran define their fighting styles, them as individuals, and their overall identities.   I have listed the seven martial arts that Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specialise in to a high degree. You, my dear readers and fellow martial arts fans, have read how much I have been delving into and dedicating myself to make each of their fighting styles come to life in writing, which I hope to transfer into illustration. Now, I want to delve into the five main martial arts that I believe Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran would incorporate and mix with lethal gusto. Therefore, I personally believe that it is not the martial art that is measured by how lethal it is, but the practitioners who use the martial arts, push themselves to thrive in them, and make them effective weapons of self-defence, power, accurate timing and, to some extent, mass destruction. With that said, let the joints break, the fists and feet fly, and blood be spewed from opponents’ bodies when Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran are on the prowl to punch, kick, strike, and grapple loads of butts.   Sesshoumaru: MCMAP, MMA, Brazilian Jujitsu, Shotokan Karate, and Taekwondo Military precision and lethal stamina are the hallmarks of what make Sesshoumaru an effective martial artist. Marine Corps Martial Arts provides him with the quick reaction time he needs to disarm his enemies and rain vicious blows. The same thing can be said about Sesshoumaru’s ground and pound attacks in Mixed Martial Arts plus his grappling leverage in Brazilian Jujitsu. More than anything, Sesshoumaru exhibits focus in Shotokan Karate and Taekwondo thanks to his signature roundhouse kicks, spinning backfists, and jabs to the body. All of Sesshoumaru’s foes would easily find themselves shattered with intimidation.   Shuran: Vale Tudo, Sambo, Profesional Wrestling, Sumo Wrestling, and Pehlwani Brutal physical strength, an imposing body size, and a larger-than-life personality may define Shuran as a grappler, but his personal dedication shines like the brightest of diamonds to the point where promoters would be happy to have him featured as the heavyweight champion fighter. Shuran does take advantage of Vale Tudo’s and Sambo’s bloodily vicious ground and pound attacks, elbow strikes, and knee strikes plus Pro-Wrestling’s showman-like bravado, Sumo Wrestling’s raw power, and Pehlwani’s will to go down and dirty thanks to how he uses a myriad of submission holds. Shuran’s grappling can indubitably tear his foes to tiny shreds.   Inuyasha: Pankration, Kapu Kuialua, Bokator, Kenpo Karate, and Kyokushin Karate Heaps of resilience and super strength certainly make a powerful fighter like Inuyasha thrive so wonderfully, regardless if he is in a 100-man Kumite or unleashing a flurry of punches, kicks, strikes, and grapples on large hard objects. Pankration’s and Kapu Kuialua’s ferocity are put to exceptional use by Inuyasha when he approaches his enemies with submission holds and chokeholds galore. Inuyasha’s ferocity is also evident in Bokator, American Kenpo Karate, and Kyokushin Karate when he unleashes his uppercuts, Superman punches, and spinning axe kicks, thus leaving his foes with external and internal bleeding and severe bone damage.   Hakkaku: Muay Thai, Pradal Serey, Kajukenbo, Dambe, and Panantukan The enthusiasm, grit, and excitement Hakkaku radiates with all flow in his blood, veins, heart, and overall being when he prepares for his fights presented in some of the world’s royal arenas. This is thanks to the sheer power, torque, force, and leverage found in his formidable myriad of punches, knee strikes, elbow strikes, shin kicks, and headbutts, specifically used in Muay Thai and Pradal Serey. Hakkaku’s formidability is just as clearly illustrated when he puts his signature cross punches, shin kicks, elbow strikes, headbutts, clinches, and knee strikes in Kajukenbo, Dambe, and Panantukan, thus reducing his foes to microscopic crumbs.   Ginta: Lethwei, Sanda, Pencak Silat, Hwa Rang Do, and Jeet Kune Do The charm, lovability, and honour Ginta exudes on a day-to-day basis are all reflected in how positive the audience reception is when he enters every single fight he finds himself in. Coupled with how positive Ginta is as a person is his speed, power, balance, timing, torque, and grit in his shin kicks, knee strikes, elbow strikes, headbutts, clinches, and punches, especially used to great effect in Lethwei, Sanda, and Pencak Silat. Coupling with those attacks are his signature flying kicks, spinning kicks, and gut punches present in Jeet Kune Do and Hwa Rang Do, thus doing as much irreparable damage and destruction to all of his foes.   Ayame: Kickboxing, Koppojutsu, Hapkido, Boxing, and Krav Maga There is no question that Ayame possesses a high degree of ambition, determination, confidence, and strong willpower to deliver an amazing repertoire of punches, kicks, and strikes complete with breakneck speed, Herculean strength, and quick reactive timing. Her powerful fists and flashy footwork are especially made clear in Kickboxing, Boxing, and Hapkido when she unleashes her signature uppercuts, jabs, hooks, cross punches, Superman punches, and leopard blows. She also has brutal disarming skills used in Hapkido and Krav Maga when she permanently annihilates her foes’ bones thanks to her lethal strikes of doom.   Shunran: Capoeira, Shaolin Kung Fu, Ninjutsu, Aikido, and Baguazhang There is nothing to doubt when Shunran bears more than sufficient resourcefulness, cleverness, avidness, and grace to demonstrate that she is not fooling around with her kicks, tricking, strikes, and punches filled with speedy agility, Mercurial rapidness, and frightening unpredictability. Her dancelike moves combined with her agile leg and arm strength are clearly shown in Capoeira, Shaolin Kung Fu, and Baguazhang when she launches her butterfly kicks, split kicks, flying kicks, hooks, jabs, backfists, and knife…

My Top Three Main Splendid Seven Platonic Spars

Greetings, Splendid Seven devotees, martial arts aficionados, and fighting video game fans. Antoni here with another written entry focusing on Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specialising in the martial arts they do. Today, I will be delving into the main martial arts sparring matches my three personal platonic pairings revolving around Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran. Once again, they are Sesshoumaru and Shuran; Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta; and Ayame and Shunran.   We have now come to this, ladies and gentlemen, the main martial art sparring matches that my three favourite Splendid Seven platonic pairings Sesshoumaru and Shuran; Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta; and Ayame and Shunran specialise in the most. This time, I am elevating things with main martial arts that I believe are the most deadly and can cause the most amount of collateral damage against their opponents per platonic pairing. With that said, let the blows fly and the camaraderie commence.   Sesshoumaru and Shuran: Mixed Martial Arts vs Vale Tudo With Sesshoumaru’s precise use of Shotokan Karate, Goju-Ryu Karate, and Shito-Ryu Karate in Mixed Martial Arts as well as Shuran’s great use of Combat Sambo, Pro-Wrestling, and Sumo Wrestling in Vale Tudo, these two powerhouses are at an advantage when combining Sesshoumaru’s lethally accurate strikes and Shuran’s brutally strong grapples. Furthermore, the respect, moral support, dedication, and allegiance they would have for each other as combatants and as individuals compliment the relentless number of attacks they have in store against their hapless opponents who are brazen enough to challenge them.   Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta: Pankration vs Muay Thai vs Lethwei The sight of Inuyasha’s, Hakkaku’s, and Ginta’s own blood thrills them when they are on the prowl to deliver some serious close-range blows and clinches to their opponents. Inuyasha may be formidable in Kyokushin Karate, Seidokaikan Karate, and Enshin Karate; Hakkaku may be fierce in Pradal Serey, Panantukan, and Kajukenbo; Ginta may be fearless in Sanda, Jeet Kune Do, and Pencak Silat, but their versatility in their punches, kicks, strikes, and grapples are also incorporated in Pankration, Muay Thai, and Lethwei. Their brotherly sparring sessions together are also filled with integrity, truth, honour, and determination.   Ayame and Shunran: Hapkido vs Shaolin Kung Fu There is a slight chance that opponents would ever survive when Ayame delivers her powerful punches and incredible kicks and Shunran unleashes her array of kicks, tricking, and strikes. Ayame’s strength and power in Kickboxing, Koppojutsu, and Nippon Kenpo are applied well in Hapkido, while Shunran’s agility and speed in Capoeira, Aikido, and Ninjutsu are well-implemented in Shaolin Kung Fu. What further solidifies Ayame’s and Shunran’s sisterhood is how they build each other up with openness, cooperation, a positive attitude, and resilience to make every punch, kick, and strike have stronger significance as fighters and as individuals.   There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, my three favourite Splendid Seven platonic pairings in the forms of their main martial arts sparring matches. Please let me know in the comments which one is your favourite. Until then, train hard and well, and stay healthy.

My Top Three Splendid Seven Platonic Combat Spars

Greetings, Splendid Seven devotees, martial arts aficionados, and fighting video game fans. Antoni here with another written entry focusing on Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specialising in the martial arts they do. Today, I will be delving into my favourite platonic pairings revolving around Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran in the forms of the martial arts they spar in. Today, I will be taking a look at the three out of my favourite seven platonic pairings in martial arts sparring form revolving around Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran.   It should be no surprise that I enjoy the Splendid Seven platonic relationships of the same sex, especially when it come to how they spar in their respective martial arts, because of the bonding possibilities I can see in each of them. Overlooking their various martial arts skills, there is also an underlying sense of respect and allegiance each platonic pairing has, considering that each sparring session is rich with camaraderie and the constant need for improvement. With that said, let us get ourselves warmed up with those punches, kicks, blocks, and great physical and mental conditioning because these seven Yokai martial artists are ready for action.   Sesshoumaru and Shuran: Lethally Intimidating Leverage Incarnate Combinations could not get any deadlier than having Sesshoumaru’s completeness as a martial artist be meshed with Shuran’s brute force as a powerful grappler. In fact, Shuran’s repertoire of chokeholds, bearhugs, and bone-breakers compliment Sesshoumaru’s program of punches, kicks, and strikes in an extraordinary fashion. They would even balance each other exceedingly well, with Shuran tapping into Sesshoumaru’s unparalleled skills as a grappler and Sesshoumaru demonstrating that Shuran can channel his brute strength into something productive while not using it to show off, evidenced in the following martial arts. Shotokan Karate vs Sumo Wrestling Motobu-Ryu Karate vs Vale Tudo Goju-Ryu Karate vs Sambo Shito-Ryu Karate vs Ssireum Marine Corps Martial Arts vs Pro Wrestling Mixed Martial Arts vs Pehlwani Shootfighting vs Malla-yuddha   Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta: Muscularly Powerful Brutality Engendered Punching, kicking, elbow striking, knee striking, clinching, and grappling into action are Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta whose powerful fists, metallic elbows, rock-hard shins, and flashing feet can cause pain and devastation to various opponents. Sure, Inuyasha is also a grappler who can deliver some mean ground and pound attacks while Hakkaku and Ginta are mainly clinchers and strikers, but they build each other up in ways that empower each other and encourage each other to do their very best in their skills as fighters and in their lives as people. The trust, synergy, and brotherly love are reflected in these following martial arts. Bokator vs Muay Thai vs Lethwei Pankration vs Pradal Serey vs Pencak Silat Ancient Greek Boxing vs Panantukan vs Sanda American Kenpo Karate vs Kajukenbo vs Jeet Kune Do Kyokushin Karate vs Taekkyeon vs Eagle Claw Kung Fu Seidokaikan Karate vs Dambe vs Hwa Rang Do Ashihara Karate vs Moraingy vs Tang Soo Do   Ayame and Shunran: Beautifully Deadly Torque Personified Agility, flexibility, dedication, determination, intuition, speed, and kinesthetics are the hallmarks of what make Ayame and Shunran a couple of fiery auburn-haired beauties capable of obliterating any and every form of challenger. When Ayame puts her furious fists and fleet feet into potent motion and Shunran puts her amazing agility and sterling speed to great use, they would be unstoppably invincible. Therefore, Ayame’s wide range of punches and kicks as well as Shunran’s list of kicks, tricking, and flips can compliment each other perfectly while bearing a sense of cooperative sisterhood shown in the following martial arts. Kickboxing vs Capoeira Nippon Kenpo vs Shaolin Kung Fu Shorinji Kenpo vs Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu Koppojutsu vs Aikido Hapkido vs Savate Taido vs Ninjutsu Boxing vs Wing Chun   There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, my top three most favourite Splendid Seven platonic pairings in martial arts sparring form. Please let me know which of these is your most favourite, and have a lovely time, everybody.

My Weight Loss Progress: Barely Three Years On

Hello, everybody. Antoni here, and I have some wonderful news regarding my weight progress so far. I am now at 10 stone 8.2 lbs (148.2 lbs or 67.2 kg) in my weight loss journey that lasted nearly barely three years from now. I could not be any happier because I am officially at my normal weight, but I do aspire to achieve more weight loss goals than ever before, especially with my coveted 7-stone-2 pound (100-pound or 45.4-kilogram) weight loss goal being put into firm practice. I started my weight loss journey back on August 29, 2019 weighing in at 17 stone 3.6 lbs (241.6 lbs or 109.6 kg), which meant that I was heading into trouble with becoming more obese than I was if I did not control myself. Mind you, it was not the first time that I was classified as medically obese at worst and medically overweight at best, as I have been on a constantly struggling odyssey with my weight nearly all of my life. However, after watching weight loss documentaries and shows such as Fat Families, Supersize vs Superskinny, and Secret Eaters, especially during my pre-university vacation in Paris, Bordeaux, and Dresden, I began to adapt to walking a whole lot more from A to B instead of constantly relying on public transportation, specifically for one-hour journeys by foot, and I even adapted to surviving on child-sized portions plus liquids as my only meal. This was a habit that I ended up integrating when walking from my home to my university, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and vice-versa, with the fruits of my labour paying off, despite the occasional binge or two. In 2020, my weight loss progress was more fully realised when I lost 3 stone 1 lb (43 lbs or 19.5 kg), making me land at 14 stone 2.6 lbs (198.6 lbs or 90.1 kg). This was also helped by the fact that, since it was during the first Covid-19 pandemic wave, public places such as restaurants and takeaway places were on lockdown, thus reducing my urge to binge and, most of all, lust for takeaway food, which was one of my greatest downfalls of all time plus my excessive intake of carbohydrates. Although I was still medically obese, I did not want to be complacent, and I was introduced by a very great friend and their wonderful family to the Keto lifestyle. I refuse to call it a diet because the Keto lifestyle really did address where I went wrong with my eating habits and patterns. Thanks to the consistency I did my best to maintain, I was no longer classified as obese but medically overweight during my tenure of losing weight from September to December of 2020. In fact, on December 31, 2020, I weighed 12 stone 8.4 lbs (176.4 lbs or 80 kg), which kept my motivation even higher than ever before. 2021 saw me constantly battling with my weight even more, although I still thanked my lucky stars that I was no longer classified as obese. I even reached my lightest weight of 11 stone 1.4 lbs (155.4 lbs or 70.5 kg), which meant that I was in my normal weight for the first time in years. It made me feel a whole lot happier, healthier, and set for life. However, I did stumble and ended up regaining some weight because I did lose a drastic amount of weight from mid-June to late-July by restricting my food intake almost to the extreme. All of this meant that my cravings were coming back with a mighty vengeance, but I still obtained compliments from friends, relatives, and people I have been in good contact with about how much healthier I looked and how much slimmer I looked in comparison to the many occasions where I tried to lose weight. At least the encouragement served to further strengthen my resolve. This year, my weight may have gone up and down, but I still managed to do my very best to keep the mantra of eating less and moving more, thus living on a calorie deficit complimented by physical activity such as walking, floor exercises, and stretching. I also did what I could to decrease the amount of calories I was taking in a day and always reserved Fridays for fasting. After regaining some weight and losing it again, I managed to 7.3 lbs (3.3 kg) lighter than what I was last year when I was at my lightest weight. Now, I am proud to say that I am 10 stone 8.2 lbs (148.2 lbs or 67.2 kg) putting me nicely in my normal weight range with a normal BMI of 23.5. I could not be any prouder let alone happier for myself that I have achieved being at my normal weight range. As I said before, I cannot afford to rest on my laurels let alone be complacent. Ever since I heard multiple testimonies of people losing over 7 stone 2 lbs (100 lbs or 45.4 kgs) of weight in certain amounts of time ranging from 5 months to 4 years, I thought it would be great if I got myself into this too. After all, I am about to celebrate my third year weight loss anniversary this coming August 29, which makes it 3 weeks and 2 days from now. My goal weight is 10 stone 1.6 lbs (141.6 lbs or 64.2 kg), which means I have 6.6 lbs (3 kg) to lose in order for me to attain that goal. Any weight that is lower than 10 stone 1.6 lbs (141.6 lbs or 64.2 kg) is all the better for me, especially when I aspire to reach 9 stone (126 lbs or 57.1 kg). The point I want to drive home is that any weight lost is better than any weight regained. I am happy that I have come this far, and I never want to go back to being overweight ever again because I am far too gorgeous to ever be…
