Hand to hand combat without using a weapon provides an advantage over those whose ammunition depletes or weapon gets knocked out of their hands. Your body is your weapon, so you easily pass through any gun-control check-point.

Aikijutsu

In Cybersphere's urban canyons, Aikijutsu has evolved into a defensive art of entangling arm-locks mixed with lighting-quick strikes. It is slightly more suited to damage than to blocking movements.

Taijitsu

Fierce Yakuza retainers have transformed the ancient disciplines of Taijitsu into a graceful ballet of defensive knifehand parries. Occasional twists and pinning arm-locks give this martial art some damaging capability, but its primary focus is counterblock and dodge.

Tae Kwon Do

When the North American economies crashed, Indochinese satellite feeds popularized a brawling version of Tae Kwon Do among masses of idle schoolchildren. The bastardized version of Tae Kwon Do in Cybersphere's pop culture rewards mass and strength in a choreography of swift snap-kicks and full-body sweeps.

Kung Fu

The ritualized disciplines of Kung Fu remain untainted, elegant, and difficult to master in post-war culture. This art retains its balance for lethality and clever offense, and in its most basic style, rewards skill and patience over raw strength and aggression.

Muay Thai

Muay Thai, the devastating "science of 8 limbs", was borne out of combat reality over thousands of years when the Thai people had to defend their country. Muay Thai employs not only punching and kicking techniques but elbows and knees as well. Muay Thai makes full use of all the body's natural weapons - fists, elbows, knees, kicks (shin & feet) combined with clinches, grapples, locks and throws, as well as unlocking mind and spirit potential. It is a style more offensive than defensive.

Savate

Boxe Francaise Savate is an exciting full-contact ring sport from France. One of a few "authentic" kickboxing styles in the world, Savate is known for mobility, fluidity and rapid-fire kicking and punching combinations. A blend of Asian fighting arts and old English boxing, Savate was developed in the 1800s on the sailing ships and back streets of France and is a style more offensive in nature than defensive.

Command:

@natural-weapon Savate

Dirty Infighting

This fighting style is not a defined art, nor is it elegant, disciplined, or graceful. Infighting was born of the desperation of back alleys, and its eye-gouging, rabbit-punching, knee-breaking techniques thrive in Cybersphere's gritty urban sprawls. Its brutal moves reward strength slightly more than skill, but armored opponents are difficult targets.

@natural-weapon Dirty Infighting
