The Fourteen Anime Martial Art Teams’ Birthdays

Greetings, anime fans, martial arts aficionados, fighting game devotees, and enthusiasts of all things about anime, martial arts, video games, and fighting tournaments. Antoni here with another written entry. My beloved seven-person anime martial arts teams who have also been Dudley’s and Daisy’s as well as their seven children’s martial arts trainers have struck again. There is no doubt that Dudley, Daisy, and their pups have been very happy and blessed to have these seven-person anime martial arts teams as their instructors. This is because these anime martial artists are individuals first which is the same story said about their fighting video game counterparts.   The fourteen anime martial arts teams are not only going to be organized by their respective martial arts but also from oldest to youngest according to their birth years and their ages. I am using the ages they currently are after their shows aired on television. I want to remind you that the characters featured here are from anime series that aired between 1998 and 2009, especially considering that my anime-watching days on Animax during my time in Cebu, Philippines, and Adult Swim during my time in the United States reached an all-time high when I was a 12-year-old sixth grader in 2004. With that said, let us get acquainted with when these anime martial artists were born and express our collective joy about their ever-flourishing tenure as combatants and as people. Some of them are based on canon birthdays, while others are partially based on my own personal headcanon. Osu!
