Damage: +3/+4
Move: -1

Requirements: Punch *****, Dashing Uppercut
Power Points: Boxing 3
School System Power Points: Boxing 4
Description: The 1,000 Punch Uppercut does not hit as many times as its name would like to imply but it is a nasty technique to get clobbered by. The boxer charges forward with a Dashing Punch then strikes again with a vicious uppercut that floors most opponents in one fell swoop.
System: This is considered a dashing maneuver and requires a straight line between the attacker and the target. It hits twice, scores a knockdown versus aerial opponents, and knocks ground opponents back one hex.

Damage: +2

Power Points: Capoeira, Kabbaddi, Sanbo 2, Any 3
School System Power Points: Capoeira, Grappler, Mystical 2, Any 3
Description: The Amazon River Dash is a a punch that originated in Brazil and takes its name from the low rush the fighter takes their opponent’s feet out with.

System: This is a crouching maneuver and causes knockdown if any damage is unsoaked.

Art of Breaking
Cost: see desc
Speed: -3
Damage: see desc
Move: -1

Requirements: Punch ***, Focus ***
Power Points: Any 2
School System Power Points: Any 3
Material Difficulty Price
Ice: 4 none
Wood: 5 none
Stone/Brick/Cement: 7 1 Willpower
Metal: 8 2 Willpower
Hardened Metal: 9 2 W, 1 Chi
Diamond: 10 2 W, 2 Chi

Description: Tamashiwara, or the "Art of Breaking", can more or less be described as practice in board breaking. A character with this maneuver will have learned how to use nearly any part of their body to break wood, ice, glass, and stone by breaking the Chi of the object.
System: This power can be used on nearly any non-living object. Make a roll against a difficulty determined as follows using the fighter’s current Chi total. Art of Breaking cannot be used on living things or cybernetic implants (attempting to do so delivers damage as per a Fierce punch). Each success inflicts 1 point of damage to the object. If the object runs out of health it is effectively destroyed. Note that this attack can be delivered with a punch or a kick as desired although it is listed as a punch maneuver.

Atemi Strike
Cost: 1 Willpower
Speed: -1
Damage: -1
Move: -2

Requirements: Punch ****, Focus **
Power Points: Ninjitsu, Chin Na 2, Kung Fu 4
School System Power Points: Hunter, Kung Fu, Grappler, Inner 4
Description: In this attack the fighter strikes at one of his opponent's nerve points causing agonizing pain. The Atemi strike is typically carried out much like the Fingertip Attack in that it is a quick strike with the fingers held rigid.
System: An Atemi Strike is only functional if it connects with unarmored flesh. Against an opponent who is utilizing armor the ninja can make a Perception + Insight roll to first gauge where weak points exist. The number of successes needed is dependent on the level of armor. An opponent with only chest protection requires only 1 success while full body armor would require 3. Against an opponent utilizing Toughskin a minimum of 4 successes are needed but weak points do exist – generally at joints.

If the Atemi Strike is successful the fighter rolls for damage ignoring the defender’s Stamina and armor value. After this roll the defender may then roll to soak this damage using only half their Stamina, rounded up.

Banishing Punch
Cost: 1 Chi
Speed: +1
Damage: +2
Move: -1

Requirements: Punch ****, Focus ***
Power Points: Boxing 3, Sanbo 4
School System Power Points: Boxer 3, Grappler 4
Description: Zangief, never one to be left behind, developed this maneuver to deal with his opponent's projectile attacks; the fancy fireballs, sonic booms and so on of his opponents had always been a problem for him so he improved his mental control a little bit and was able to develop a glowing punch that could obliterate incoming projectiles. Since then he has taught this to other Sanbo fighters.
System: Using the Banishing Punch as it was originally designed - to intercept and nullify incoming projectiles - requires being faster than the fighter who created the projectile to be intercepted. If this happens intercepting the incoming projectile requires a Strength + Insight roll versus a difficulty equal to 4 + 1 for every 3 damage successes on the projectile - maximum 9. If the fighter using this succedes the projectile is canceled and dissipates harmlessly in the air. There is no need to roll damage for the Banishing Punch in this instance. When this maneuver is used against an opponent directly it inflicts damage as a normal punch using the modifiers below.

Boshi-Ken (Thumb Drive)
Cost: none
Speed: -1
Damage: +2
Move: +0

Requirements: Punch ***, Shikan-ken
Power Points: Ninjitsu, Chin Na, Kung Fu 2
School System Power Points: Hunter, Inner, Kung Fu 3, Grappler 4
Description: The thumb-drive fist, or Boshi-Ken, is like a regular punch except that the thumb protrudes along the front of the fist and is used for striking the opponent. Typically the force of the punch is directed at the nerve clusters of an enemy's muscles for maximum effectiveness.
System: An opponent struck with this punch will suffer numbness during the following round. If any damage is inflicted the opponent suffers a -1 to Move during the next round. If no damage was scored by the Ninja it is assumed that the strike missed the targeted nerve cluster and doesn't slow the target appreciably.

Power Points: Native American Wresting, Pankration, Bando, Dirty Fighting 1, Any 2

Power Points: Thai Kickboxing, Wrestling, Ninjitsu 2, Any 3
School System Power Points: Grappler, Karate, Hunter, Kickboxing 2, Any 3
Description: The kickboxer jumps into their opponent with an aerial elbow drop. Although it may seem crude this elbow strike kills plenty of fighters each year in Thai arenas. Because of this reputation it is sometimes banned from use.

Chi Breaker
Cost: 2 Willpower
Speed: as Dim Mak
Damage: as Dim Mak
Move: as Dim Mak

Requirements: Focus ****, Punch ****, Dim Mak
Power Points: Any 5
School System Power Points: Kung Fu 3, Inner 4, Any 5
Description: The Chi Breaker is an eastern pressure point strike used in Dim Mak to inhibit and potentially even stop the flow of chi in the target. Using this takes the place of any other Dim Mak effects.
System: Using Chi Breaker uses the exact same modifiers the character would use for Dim Mak (as noted below) however the character must specify they are using this variant of the maneuver and not the standard Dim Mak. Attacking with this maneuver requires a to-hit roll using Perception + Punch, difficulty 7. On a successful strike the attacker makes a contested roll of permanent Chi with their target. If the attacker succeeds the defender suffers a +1 difficulty penalty per success difference on all chi-driven maneuvers for the next 24 hours. If the attacker wins by 5 or more successes the defender cannot use chi at all for the same 24 period. These effects can be repaired by others using Chi Breaker by rolling permanent Chi against the original attacker's successes.

Move: +1

Requirements: Punch ****, Manipulation ***, Counterstrike
Power Points: Dirty Fighting 2, Boxing, Kickboxing, Thai Kickboxing, Hapkido 3
School System Power Points: Dirty Fighting, Boxing 3, Kickboxing, Inner 4
Description: The fighter uses a bluff to throw their opponent off guard. If the opponent hits them, falling for the bluff, the fighter quickly counters with a right cross.
System: The attacker cannot abort after picking Cross Counter. It cannot be the last punch in a Guren-Ken and requires complete concentration to pull off. If a fighter using this counter is dizzied the counter punch still happens irregardless but can no longer be maintained into the next round.

The fighter using Cross Counter makes a contested Manipulation + Intimidation opposed by a Wits + Style Lore roll at the beginning of the round. If the fighter succeeds in their Manipulation roll they choose a second punch maneuver that their opponent believes they are using instead of this one. If the opponent closes to within one hex and attempts a counterable attack the fighter immediately interrupts them with the right hook that cannot be blocked. The attacker may not abort their attack once the counter has been triggered.

Dashing Punch
Cost: 1 Willpower
Speed: +0
Damage: +4
Move: +2

Requirements: Punch ****, Athletics *
Power Points: Boxing, Savate, Bando 4, Western Kickboxing 5
School System Power Points: Boxing, Kickboxing 3, Any 4
Description: This explosive move was practically invented by Balrog (although some people say one of his trainers actually developed it). When the starting bell rang for Balrog's boxing matches he would dash across the ring and blast his opponent with a knockout punch before the opponent realized the fight had begun. The move was considered by many to be a typical Balrog cheap shot but it won him lots of matches.

Now Balrog uses his Dashing Punch to crush his Street Fighter competitors. Many Street Fighter boxers have added the move to their own repertoires.
System: Use the listed modifiers. The fighter must move in a straight line.

Damage: +3
Move: +1

Requirements: Punch ****, Athletics *, Dashing Punch
Power Points: Boxing 1, Savate, Western Kickboxing, Bando 2
School System Power Points: Boxing, Kickboxing 2, Any 3
Description: This move is a slight adaptation of the Dashing Punch. The difference is that the fighter delivers an uppercut instead of a straight punch at the end of the dash.
System: The Dashing Uppercut can hit opponents executing aerial maneuvers. Against such opponents it scores a knockdown in addition to damage. The fighter must move in a straight line to deliver the blow ending their turn in their target's hex unless the target was aerial and knocked down in which case the fighter may move up to their full movement.

Dim Mak
Cost: 1 Chi
Speed: +0
Damage: +0
Move: +0

Requirements: Punch ****, Focus ***, Chi Kung Healing
Power Points: Aikido, Kung Fu, Lua, Silat, Tai Chi Chuan, Chin Na 4, Majestic Crow Kung Fu 5
School System Power Points: Mystical, Inner, Kung Fu 4
Description: Dim Mak is the art of the death touch. Masters of Dim Mak possess secret knowledge of how Chi flows within the human body. The human body's Chi patterns are said to vary according to the time of day, season, and many other esoteric factors. A master of Dim Mak possesses knowledge of all of these factors and utilizes it to pinpoint vulnerable locations on his opponent's body. Thus a mere finger thrust can disrupt a Chi flow and bring all sorts of misery to the victim of the Dim Mak strike. Legends of Dim Mak say that it is possible for the master to touch a victim and delay the damage to the victim's body by seconds, minutes, days, or even months. Certain pressure point strikes can paralyze the limbs, afflict the victim with specific diseases, and even kill with one blow.

The arts of Snake Kung Fu come closest to maintaining the knowledge of Dim Mak but a qualified teacher is extremely rare.
System: While there are many effects of Dim Mak that a Storyteller should feel free to include for dramatic purposes, use of Dim Mak in tournament combat has certain specific effects.

Whenever a fighter strikes an opponent with a Dim Mak damage is rolled normally but the attacker inflicts two extra effects. The first is that they can decide to delay the damage from the strike for any specified number of rounds. The damage will be applied against the opponent's Health at the beginning of the specified round. The character does not have to tell their opponent when damage will be dealt but the player should tell the Storyteller or write it on a piece of paper.

The second effect is that the attacker can temporarily lower one of the victim's Physical Attributes by one point per successful Dim Mak strike. Physical Attributes cannot be lowered below 1 in this manner. The victim's Speed, Damage, and natural resistance temporarily drop as his Dexterity, Strength or Stamina are reduced. Any tests involving the affected Attribute must be made using the lower score. The victim can regain these lost points after combat by making a successful Honor roll as if the points were Chi.

Example: A Dim Mak practitioner strikes an opponent. She scores three damage successes. The fighter can choose to apply this to the victim's Health now or wait to apply it any number of turns in the future. In addition the fighter chooses to lower the opponent's Strength by one (she has struck a point along the victim's rib cage that leaves his arms feeling numb and weak).

Disarm (punch version)
Cost: none
Speed: -1
Damage: +0
Move: -2

Requirements: Punch ***
Power Points: Any 3
School System Power Points: Inner 2, Any 3
Description: Using this maneuver a character may deliver a blow that, if successful, will knock a weapon from an opponent's hands.
System: The fighter punches their opponent’s hand or arm attempting to force them to release their weapon. After calculating damage the weapon’s holder then makes a Strength test and needs more successes then damage to keep their grip. If the Disarm is successful the weapon flies a number of hexes away equal to how many successes remain after the Strength test. Disarm has no effect if the weapon is somehow secured to the duelist. In such cases the duelist can still be disarmed by using The Art of Breaking to destroy the weapon itself or the securing mechanism.

Cost: none
Speed: +2
Damage: +0
Move: 1

Requirements: Punch **
Power Points: Savate, Kickboxing, Thai Kickboxing 2
School System Power Points: Kickboxing 2
Description: The Double Elbow, although not as powerful as an Elbow Smash, finds its niche in kickboxing rings. It is an upward blow with the elbow that hits twice. It lacks the torque of Elbow Smash but can be used when the kickboxer doesn't have the time or opportunity to steady themselves on the ground.
System: This maneuver hits twice. Use the listed modifiers. The attacker must enter the defender's hex in order to deliver this maneuver.

Move: -1

Requirements: Punch **
Power Points: Boxing, Kung Fu, Sanbo, Special Forces, Sumo, Western Kickboxing 1, Any 2
School System Power Points: Boxing 1, Military, Grappler, Kickboxing 2, Any 3
Description: This is a basic one-two punch combination common with boxers and taught in gyms around the world. Although the punches aren't particularly strong they help the boxer learn how to best maximize use of their arms. To learn this maneuver, the fighter obviously has to have two functional arms.
System: This maneuver scores two damage tests. Choose when you buy the move if it is aerial, crouching, or neither. Thus, this maneuver may be purchased and learned multiple times.

Description: Handy in a bar room brawl, Double Punch allows two simultaneous attacks on two opponents in the same round.
System: Both fists deliver a punch. The Fighter chooses for both fists one of their basic punch maneuvers. So a fighter may opt to deliver two Strong punches but cannot use Jab with one and Strong with the other. Both enemies must be in front of the attacker and standing in an adjacent hex.

Dragon's Kiss
Cost: 1 Chi, 1 Willpower
Speed: -1
Damage: see desc
Move: -2

Requirements: Punch *****, Focus *****, Dim Mak
Power Points: Kung Fu 5
School System Power Points: Kung Fu 5
Description: The Dragon's Kiss is a dreaded "lost art" of Kung Fu. It is rumored that, at any given time, only a single master knows the secret of this technique. Perhaps that explains the extreme rarity of its use. With this technique a master could literally kill with a single touch and their victim be none the wiser to their fate.
System: Applying the Kiss is such a delicate task that it is difficulty 8 to hit with and the attacker cannot even attempt the strike if they are interrupted that round. If it connects the attacker then makes an Intelligence + Mysteries roll, also difficulty 8. Each success on this roll can be spent thusly: it can temporarily reduce the target's ability to recover aggravated health by one level per day per success, reduce the amount of Chi the target recovers with each recovery event by one dot per success, double the amount of time necessary to recover bashing damage (spending 3 successes), reduce the target's maximum health by 1 dot temporarily (spending 2 successes and affecting bashing and aggravated simultaneously), or inflict temporary but debilitating pain resulting in a -1 speed penalty to all maneuvers (spending 2 successes). If health recovery is pushed into a negative number the target automatically loses that many health levels per day until they die or this effect is removed.

The Kiss itself inflicts no damage and no damage roll is required. These reductions can be healed by other applications of the Dim Mak or at a rate of one point per week of recuperation. The Chi and Willpower spent on this maneuver cannot be recovered by meditation or regeneration, only full rest.

Dragon Punch
Cost: 1 Willpower
Speed: +0
Damage: +6
Move: -2

Requirements: Punch ****, Jump, Power Uppercut
Power Points: Shotokan Karate 4, Jeet Kune Do, Kung Fu, Majestic Crow Kung Fu, Silat, Thai Kickboxing 5
School System Power Points: Karate 4, Kung Fu, Kickboxing 5
Description: Gouken is the only living master who is known to teach this incredible maneuver. He has passed it on to his students Ryu and Ken and they have used it to forge their names among the ranks of the World Warriors.
System: The Dragon Punch is a leaping uppercut that counts as an aerial maneuver. The fighter chooses any one ground or aerial opponent within their movement range to suffer the Dragon Punch's wrath. Opponents in the middle of aerial maneuvers suffer a knockdown if the Dragon Punch scores damage against them. Grounded opponents are simply knocked back one hex from the force of the blow.

The force of the punch carries the fighter high into the air. The Dragon Punch can be used like Jump to avoid incoming projectile attacks however if it is used to interrupt and leap over a projectile attack the Dragon Punch cannot be used against the opponent firing the projectile attack.

Driving Punch
Cost: 1 Chi, 2 Willpower
Speed: -1
Damage: +6/+3
Move: +2

Requirements: Punch *****, Athletics ***, Dashing Punch
Power Points: Boxing 4, Bando 5
School System Power Points: Boxing, Karate, Military 5
Description: This spectacular and often devastating punch has been equated with being hit head on by a freight train. Barreling into their opponent fist-first the boxer hits, drives the opponent back, swings with their other fist, and continues pursuing using a flurry of fierce blows to batter their foe senseless.
System: This attack, like a Dashing Punch, requires an open straight line between the attacker and defender. If the first punch, using the +6 damage modifier below, does any damage the defender is knocked one hex back and the attacker may continue moving forward. In each subsequent hex the attacker may strike again using the +3 damage modifier and inflicting another hex of knockback if successful.

Ear Pop
Cost: none
Speed: -1
Damage: -2
Move: -1

Requirements: Punch **
Power Points: Baraqah, Jeet Kune Do, Jiu Jitsu, Native American Wresting, Pankration, Sanbo, Sumo Wrestling, Wrestling 2, Any 3
School System Power Points: Ler Drit, Grappler, Kung Fu 2, Any 3
Description: The big wrestlers of Russia, Japan, and North America could not find many punching techniques that would seriously slow other fighters of their style until they developed the Ear Pop. This nasty move is held to be dishonorable under some tournament rules. The fighter slaps both sides of his opponent's head with his hands slightly cupped. This causes incredible air pressure to rush into the opponent's ears stunning them and possibly causing loss of hearing (which is why the move is held to be dishonorable by some).
System: This strike ignores the opponent's Stamina for purposes of soaking damage. A fighter using Musical Accompaniment or Battle Ginga automatically loses their bonuses due to the deafness this inflicts. In addition the victim has –2 speed on their next round due to the intense pain. These effects are not cumulative.

Any fighter who uses the Ear Pop automatically loses one Honor point unless they are fighting in a tournament which turns tacitly condones such tactics. If the damage from this maneuver pushes a fighter into aggravated damage (or if the damage roll turns out to be unusually high) then the victim sustains permanent ear damage as a result.

Description: Launching themselves upon their foe the kickboxer comes crashing down elbow-first. These drops have been known to be lethal but carry with them risk of injury should the kickboxer misjudge their leap.
Description: This is an aerial maneuver and like Fist Drop deals an extra two damage against an opponent on the ground. However should the attack roll botch the fighter seriously injuries the attacking arm, suffering 3 points of aggravated damage in the process and the arm will be unusable for fighting until healed.

Fingertip Attack
Cost: none
Speed: +4
Damage: see desc
Move: +0

Requirements: Punch ***
Power Points: Kung Fu 3
School System Power Points: Kung Fu, Inner 3
Description: The fingertip attack is one of the more unusual hand strikes possible - the fighter attacks with but a single finger. This is not normally used for the damage it inflicts (which is small but painful), but in order to deliver pressure point strikes.
System: If an attack roll is required (see optional rules) the attacker rolls Perception + Punch to hit with this attack. No matter how many hit successes are scored, however, the maneuver inflicts only 1 health level of damage. The opponent suffers a –2 speed penalty on their next move and a -1 penalty for the following 2 rounds. A Fingertip Attack may be combined with certain Focus maneuvers (which will be specified in their text). In these cases use the speed of this maneuver to determine when the attack connects and the speed of the second to determine when secondary effects begin – if any. This maneuver does not stack with itself. A target already under the speed penalty suffers no further penalties (although they still take damage) from additional Fingertip Attacks.

Power Points: Wrestling, Native American Wrestling, Pankration, Sanbo, Lua, Bando, Boxing, Jiu Jitsu, Ninjitsu, Special Forces 2, Any 3
School System Power Points: Grappler, Boxing, Hunter, Military 2, Any 3
Description: With a mighty leap the fighter extends one arm and crashes into their opponent fist first. The Fist Drop is primarily employed in Wrestling rings where it is not considered dishonorable to attack one’s foe while he is on the ground. However even in these situations striking with a closed fist is not permitted. The wrestler using Fist Drop actually hits with the forearm.
System: This is an aerial maneuver. If used against an opponent on the ground it deals an extra two damage.

System: The Flaming Dragon Punch is identical to the regular Dragon Punch with the following exceptions: Any opponent hit with the Flaming Dragon Punch suffers a knockdown regardless of whether the opponent is on the ground or in the air. If the Flaming Dragon Punch is used on an opponent standing in a hex adjacent to the fighter the attacker gets to roll two damage tests for their character's punch.

Example: During a combat turn Zangief's player plays a Roundhouse and decides to move next to Ken to deliver the kick. Ken's player decides to interrupt Zangief's action with a Flaming Dragon Punch. Because Zangief is right next to Ken when he begins his Flaming Dragon Punch, Ken gets to hit Zangief twice with the punch.

Flash Chop
Cost: 1 Chi
Speed: +2
Damage: -2
Move: -2

Requirements: Punch ***, Focus **
Power Points: Special Forces, Sumo Wrestling 3, Any 4
School System Power Points: Karate, Military, Grappler 3, Any 4
Description: The attacker performs a judo chop to their opponent’s head or neck to release a payload of chi directly into the brain and nervous system. The victim is quickly disoriented by this burst and sent reeling. This makes the Flash Chop a weapon often used when attacking a tough target by surprise even if the fighters who would do such a thing vehemently profess feigned outraged at the thought.
System: When this maneuver hits the discharge of Chi causes the opponent to become highly disoriented and off balance. For every point of damage scored the opponent is at –1 speed for their next maneuver. The victim must also score more successes on a Stamina + Alertness roll then damage or they become disoriented for the remainder of the scene and suffer a temporary -1 penalty to their Perception, Alertness and Athletics. This move uses Punch + Focus to determine damage. No fighter can be affected by this maneuver twice in the same scene.

Flying Elbow Smash
Cost: 1 Willpower

Damage: +2
Move: +3

Requirements: Punch ***, Athletics **, Jump, Elbow Smash
Power Points: Savate, Kickboxing, Bando, Thai Kickboxing 3, Any 4
School System Power Points: Kickboxing 3, Any 4
Description: With a mighty leap a skilled kickboxer can launch themselves across an arena driving their elbow into their opponent with considerable speed and force.
System: Although technically an aerial maneuver the Flying Elbow Smash travels so low to the ground it only evades projectiles traveling on or just above ground level (within 1 hex of the ground plane). It does, however, hit crouching foes. If it inflicts a dizzy on the defender they are also knocked down. The attacker ends their turn in the defender's hex.

Requirements: Punch *, Jump
Power Points: Any 2
School System Power Points: Any 2
Description: This flying punch is rather amusing to watch in action as the fighter launches themselves at the target as if they were a flying monkey heedless of the danger they were putting themselves in. While easy to perform this punch tends to leave the user momentarily vulnerable.
System: Use the listed modifiers. This is an aerial maneuver. Any fighter who performs this is knocked down.

Guren-Ken
Cost: 1 Willpower per round
Speed: +3
Damage: see desc
Move: see desc

Requirements: Punch ****, Kick ***, Rekka Ken
Power Points: Kanzuki-Ryuu 4, Kung Fu, Boxing 5
School System Power Points: Kung Fu, Boxing 5
Description: A master of Rekka Ken continues to hone their ability until the dance becomes a natural rhythm and they can utilize it’s flow to end the maneuver with a move of their choice.
System: This is an improved Rekka Ken and is used largely the same way. Unlike the Rekka Ken, however, the first and second hits must be a basic punch but any other punch can be substituted for the third hit – paying its chi and willpower cost separately. This maneuver gets the speed benefit from Guren-Ken. Substituting the second hit for any another special punch maneuver ends the Guren-Ken immediately. It cannot be combined with multiple hit punches.

Like the Rekka Ken a special showmanship is always expected from fighters using this maneuver. If used for three consecutive turns or ended on the second turn with a different special punch maneuver that successfully inflicted damage this fighter is obligated to spend their next turn strutting in what is considered a Taunt maneuver that requires no rolling. If the fighter does not take a turn to do this they loses three temporary Glory points. If they do pose they get the standard +1 Glory (temporary) for showmanship.

Like the Rekka Ken the speed bonus ends if the fighter using this maneuver is knocked down, dizzied, or put into a sustained hold.

School System Power Points: Boxing, Capoeira, Grappler, Mystical, Dirty Fighting 2, Any 3
Description: When the knuckles won't do some fighters use their heads. Many styles practice head butt strikes as part of their close-range fighting arsenal of maneuvers. Fighters have to undergo grueling training to perfect this move. Training involves conditioning a fighter's forehead to take the punishment of the hit. The fighter bangs his head on padded wood, then bare wood, then bricks, then stone. This gradually toughens the fighter's head until he can crack just about anything with one solid blow from his head.
System: Use the listed modifiers.

Description: The heart punch is a blow designed to stun an opponent leaving him vulnerable to the fighter's next blow. A quick, powerful blow is delivered to the opponent's chest. This move is considered a cheap shot and can result in the loss of Honor depending on the circumstances under which it is applied.
System: No damage is actually done by this attack. However damage is still rolled for the purposes of determining a dizzy. Because of the nature of the Heart Punch technique it may not be part of a dizzying combo maneuver. It can, however, be combined for the purposes of gaining a speed bonus.

Hundred Hand Slap
Cost: 1 Willpower
Speed: +1
Damage: +0
Move: 1

Requirements: Punch ****, Palm Strike
Power Points: Majestic Crow Kung Fu, Sumo Wrestling 4, Baraqah, Jeet Kune Do, Jiu Jitsu, Kung Fu, Sanbo 5
School System Power Points: Inner 3, Grappler 4
Description: In formal sumo wrestling matches sumotori are not allowed to strike with a closed fist - only with slaps and palm heel strikes using an open hand. This restriction has led sumotori to develop an awesome technique that creates a blaringly fast flurry of strikes to overwhelm an opponent.

The strike's name derives from the fact that sumotori who train to perfect this special move practice by striking a large wooden post 100 times as fast as they can. A fighter is timed on how fast he can deliver the blows with his open hand to the wooden post. Over years of training he is expected to reduce this time to less than two seconds! Even the thickest posts often crack under the torrent of hammering blows.
System: A fighter who uses Hundred Hand Slap in combat gets to roll three times for damage using the modifier given below for each strike.

Justice Fist
Cost: 2 Chi, 1 Willpower
Speed: +0
Damage: +6/+3
Move: -2

Requirements: Punch ***** , Focus ****, Banishing Punch
Power Points: Shotokan Karate 3, Kung Fu, Boxing 4, Sanbo 5
School System Power Points: Boxing, Karate, Kung Fu 4
Description: This explosive punch is rarely seen in the Street Fighting circuit and for good reason – it is difficult to learn but packs an explosive payload. The user focuses their Chi into their fist and strikes out releasing a tremendous blast of raw kinetic force into the air.
System: This maneuver scores two damage tests. The first is for the punch using the first modifier below and the second is an Intelligence + Focus blast using the second modifier. Using this move imposes a –2 speed penalty on the user in the next round because of the slow recovery. If it does any damage the opponent is knocked three hexes back and is knocked down. Everyone occupying a hex adjacent to where this punch lands will also be hit by the blast and must roll to soak half the damage delivered to the primary target. They must also score more successes on a Dexterity + Athletics roll than the attacker's damage roll or be knocked down. The chi expended in this punch can cancel out a chi projectile attack (just like the maneuver the Justice Fist is based on - Banishing Punch) if the fighter wins a contested Strength + Insight roll versus a difficulty equal to 4 + 1 for every 3 damage successes on the projectile - maximum 9. In doing this the explosive boom is also canceled out and the punch can only deal striking damage.

Move: -1

Requirements: Punch ***
Power Points: Kung Fu, Shotokan Karate, Ninjitsu 3, Special Forces 4, Any 5
School System Power Points: Karate, Kung Fu, Hunter, Military 3, Any 4
Description: The user straightens her hand so that it's rigid and strikes fingers first at an unprotected body. The effect is a quick and deadly strike that can incapacitate an unsuspecting foe. The Knife Hand Strike is a staple maneuver for many would-be assassins since it is perfect for hurting otherwise tough targets. Its use in tournaments is legal and it is considered an honorable maneuver provided it is not used to sneak attack an opponent.
System: Use the listed modifiers to perform the strike. Unless the opponent is blocking they use only half their Stamina (rounded down) to calculate their Soak total.

Requirements: Punch **, Athletics *, Jump, Claw, Wall Spring (see below)
Power Points: Animal Hybrid 2

Description: The fighter leaps at her opponent raking him with her claws as she passes. The Leaping Rake is a rather feral, if sometimes effective, maneuver for bypassing obstinate foes and terrorizing mundane humans.
System: This is an aerial maneuver and it only works if the attacker has enough Move to go past their opponent. The hybrid adds damage from their claws to the modifier listed below. The attacker moves, rolls for damage, then continues moving, unless interrupted, to end their turn. This maneuver can be performed from a wall spring.

Requirements: Punch ***, Athletics *
Power Points: Boxing, Shotokan Karate, Western Kickboxing, Hapkido 2, Any 3
School System Power Points: Boxing, Karate, Kickboxing 2, Any 3
Description: To the untrained eye the Lunging Punch seems a desperate move being made by a fighter in distress. To those who have learned it, however, this maneuver is a swift tactical decision that can leave their foe completely vulnerable to their next attack. The fighter dashes forward and delivers a low sweeping punch that catches their opponent off-guard.
System: Use the listed modifiers. The Lunging Punch ignores blocks and is considered a crouching maneuver.

Monkey Grab Punch

School System Power Points: Boxing, Karate, Kickboxing, Hunter, Kung Fu 2, Any 3
Description: This relatively simple special maneuver originates from Monkey Kung Fu. The fighter lunges forward, grabbing and pulling away an opponent's blocking arm with one hand, then delivers a quick punch with their remaining hand.
System: When executed against a blocking defender the attacker makes an immediate Grab check and needs one success to pull a defending arm out of alignment. In this way Monkey Grab Punch negates the soak bonus from blocks. This is not a sustained hold and the arm cannot be held longer then necessary to deliver the punch.

Palm Strike
Cost: 1 Chi (optional)
Speed: +2
Damage: -2
Move: +0

Requirements: Punch **, Focus **
Power Points: Wu Shu, Kung Fu, Silat, Chin Na, Sumo Wrestling 2, Any 3
School System Power Points: Wu Shu, Karate, Inner, Kung Fu 2, Any 3
Description: A Palm Strike is an open-handed punch that strikes the opponent with the bony section of the palm to deliver damage.
System: The Palm Strike does double damage for the purposes of dizzying an opponent if the opponent is struck in the head (called shot, difficulty 8). A fighter using this can choose to expend one Chi to knock their target back a number of hexes equal to the attacker’s Focus. This must be declared before damage is rolled.

Palm Strike can also be used to break a sustained hold as long as a hand is free and can deliver the strike to the opponent’s chest. This always uses Chi and the damage scored is compared to a Strength check from the wrestler to keep hold. Using Palm Strike this way does not cause knockback.

Power Geyser
Cost: 2 Chi
Speed: -2
Damage: +2
Move: 0

Requirements: Punch *****, Ground Fire, Shockwave
Power Points: Boxing 4
School System Power Points: Boxing 5
Description: This maneuver makes your average Shockwave look like child’s play by comparison. It sacrifices range to focus all of it’s power into a small area.
System: The fighter strikes the ground as if to generate a Shockwave or Ground Fire but instead creates a geyser of chi in front of them that erupts from the ground with astonishing force. The fighter may make three strikes for three such geysers total. Each one erupts from the ground within one hex from where the ground was struck and knocks down anyone damaged by them. This maneuver inflicts damage using the fighter’s Punch + Focus technique in addition to the modifier below.

Power Uppercut
Cost: none
Speed: -1
Damage: +3
Move: 1

Requirements: Punch *
Power Points: Any 1
School System Power Points: Boxing, Kickboxing, Military 1, Any 2
Description: This move is relatively basic as special maneuvers go but more than one Street Fighter has won a tournament with bread-and-butter moves like the Power Uppercut. This powerful punch starts low and ends high above the fighter's head. By using her leg and back strength the fighter can deliver some fierce power with this punch. The total commitment to the punch usually lifts the fighter slightly off their feet as they punch upward.
System: If the Power Uppercut is used to interrupt an opponent's aerial maneuver it will also cause a knockdown if it scores damage.

Quivering Palm
Cost: 1 Chi, 1 Willpower
Speed: -1
Damage: +1
Move: -2

Requirements: Punch ****, Focus ****, Heart Punch
Power Points: Native American Wrestling 2, Lua 3, Kung Fu Chin Na 4
School System Power Points: Inner, Kung Fu 3, Grappler 4
Description: Delivering what seems to be a light blow to the chest the fighter actually delivers a deadly strike straight into the heart of their opponent. It is said that Native American shamans developed this technique in the ancient times when great mythical beasts once roamed the land. Unable to fell such creatures with conventional martial arts the shamans developed a technique to strike directly at the beast's heart and cut it's life off at the source. It was simultaneously developed in China for the same lethal reasons.
System: The Quivering Palm deals only one point of damage regardless of how many successes are rolled. One success is needed, however, for the strike to have any effect. The blow sends a shockwave through the victim's chest and into the heart and surrounding tissues. This compression results in the heart developing an arrhythmia or irregular heart beat. The effects last until medical intervention resets the heart or the victim gains more successes on the Stamina checks outlined below then three times the original damage roll.

If left untreated this arrhythmia can prove fatal to the victim. Every hour under normal activity or every five rounds of strenuous work (including fighting) the victim must make a Stamina roll. A failure means the heart goes into an abnormally fast or slow rate. The victim will feel lighted and dizzy as blood flow is disrupted. If the stamina roll botches the heart ceases beating completely. Without immediate medical attention this situation is invariably fatal.

Radiant Uppercut
Cost: 1 Willpower
Speed: -2
Damage: +3/+2
Move: 1

Requirements: Punch ****, Kick ***, Power Uppercut, Jump
Power Points: Savate, Shotokan Karate, Kung Fu, Silate 4
School System Power Points: Kickboxing, Karate, Kung Fu 4
Description: The Radiant Uppercut is a difficult maneuver to master. The fighter first must learn to launch an opponent into the air with just a single uppercut then to jump up and kick them as they fall back to earth.
System: If the defender is blocking they cannot be thrown into the air by this maneuver unless it dizzies them. However, if that succeeds the soak bonus from their block maneuver is lost against the kick. The second damage test is treated as a kick maneuver using the second modifier below. The defender is knocked two hexes back and suffers an unpreventable knockdown.

Retreating Punch
Cost: none
Speed: +1
Damage: +0
Move: -1

Requirements: Punch *, Athletics *
Power Points: Boxing 1, Kung Fu, Aikido, 2, Any 3
School System Power Points: Inner, Boxing 1, Kung Fu, Kickboxing 2, Any 3
Description: The Retreating Punch is a slight, glancing jab thrown with little in the way of strength in order to force an opponent to react. In this momentary window of opportunity the boxer slips away out of range of a retaliatory blow and prepares for the next punch.
System: Use the listed modifiers. If the punch does any damage at all the target cannot pursue until the beginning of their next turn unless they were using a maneuver that could reasonably ignore the damage (such as a Psycho Crusher). If the target moved into the punch and was interrupted they soak at a -1 Stamina penalty. After performing this punch the fighter may move up to two hexes back in a straight line or one hex adjacent in any other direction. Although not a powerful maneuver it is one of the few that allows movement after attacking.

Rekka Ken
Cost: 1 Willpower per round
Speed: see desc
Damage: see desc
Move: see desc

Requirements: Punch ****, Athletics **
Power Points: Kung Fu 4, Boxing, Majestic Crow Kung Fu, Western Kickboxing, Wu Shu 5
School System Power Points: Kung Fu, Boxing, Kickboxing 4, Wu Shu 5
Description: The Rekka Ken maneuver was developed by Fei Long. He combined the speed of his Wing Chun Kung Fu punching with new concepts of footwork. First, the fighter dashes forward and delivers a blindingly fast punch. This first punch is followed by advancing steps and up to two more consecutive punches. The rapid three-punch combination can devastate an opponent in mere seconds.
System: The Rekka Ken is essentially a combo wrapped up in a single multi-round duration maneuver. It is played just like any other maneuver but when the player's turn comes they announce their maneuver as Rekka Ken and which of the three basic punches (Jab, Strong or Fierce) which will be used that round. This punch is resolved normally but the Rekka Ken gives it +3 extra Speed beyond its normal Speed rating. For up to two subsequent turns the player can continue using Rekka Ken along with a basic punch and get the +3 Speed bonus to the punch. Each punch must be used on the same opponent and the damage from each punch combines for purposes of dizzying that opponent.

A special showmanship always accompanies the Rekka Ken. If a fighter uses the Rekka Ken for three consecutive turns against an opponent they are obligated to take a moment to strut their stuff - posing and howling in overconfident zeal in what is considered a Taunt maneuver that requires no rolling. If the fighter does not take a turn to do this they loses three temporary Glory points. If they do pose they get the standard +1 Glory (temporary) for showmanship.

The speed bonus from this technique ends if the user is knocked down, dizzied, or put into a sustained hold.

Most Street Fighters use it to discourage grapplers from getting too friendly.
System: Use the modifiers listed below. This blow can only be delivered against an opponent standing behind the fighter. It can be used in conjunction with the weapon special maneuver Backhand Fighting.

Requirements: Punch ****, Focus ***, Air Blast, Power Uppercut
Power Points: Thai Kickboxing 4
School System Power Points: Kickboxing 4
Description: Thai Kickboxing is not particularly known for it’s fist maneuvers but combine the abilities of one with an affinity for the wind and the speed that Kickboxing teaches and you find that a few merge the two together in interesting ways.
System: The fighter throws two quick uppercuts. With each snap of their arm they release chi into the air which forms a whirling vortex. However, there is a significant gap between the fighter and where the air spins up into a high enough speed to be more than a nuisance. The fighter, if they are adjacent to their target, rolls damage for two uppercuts using Punch with the +2 bonus below. At the opposite end of the hex in which the uppercuts where executed, in a direct line in front of the fighter, the twin blasts form and move two hexes before dissipating. These blasts will damage anyone or anything encountered using the fighter’s Intelligence + Focus with the +3 bonus below.

Speed: +1
Damage: +1
Move: +0

Requirements: Punch **
Power Points: Ninjitsu, Kung Fu 3, Chin Na 4
School System Power Points: Hunter 3, Boxing, Grappler, Kung Fu, Inner 4
Description: Shikan-ken is very similar to a Jab but the striking surface is significantly different. Most punches are thrown with a clenched fist that provides a wide area of impact. When throwing a Knuckle Fist the Ninja does not flex the innermost joints of their fingers. This leaves the bony middle knuckles as the striking surface. The reduced area of impact increases the strength and damage of the punch.
System: An opponent struck by the Knuckle Fist must make a Strength check against the damage dealt by this maneuver to see if they are also knocked back one hex. This punch will cause a knockdown against aerial opponents.

Description: By releasing their chi during a Dashing Punch the fighter can assail their opponent with a swift, fast-moving punch that hits like a truck and sends their foe reeling.
System: The fighter must travel in a straight line to deliver the punch. If it scores any damage the victim is knocked back one hex and the fighter may continue moving and strike them a second time. The victim can be knocked back again but the second hit ends the maneuver.

Cost: 1 Chi
Speed: +0

Description: Native American warriors can strike the earth with a mighty fist causing it to tremble and quake. The force of the strike sends a shockwave straight across the ground. This tremor can topple objects and people. The shockwave can even cause some walls to buckle and crack as their supports vibrate.
System: The character chooses a straight hex-line down which to send the shockwave that extends for a number of hexes equal to the character's Strength beginning with the hex adjacent to the character. Anyone standing in one of the affected hexes (characters in the middle of aerial maneuvers are not affected) suffers damage and is knocked down. Note that Shockwave knocks everyone down even if an opponent was blocking or didn't suffer any damage from the maneuver.

Damage: +2/+3
Move: +0

Requirements: Punch ***, Athletics **, Power Uppercut
Power Points: Shotokan Karate 2, Bando, Lua 3
School System Power Points: Karate 3, Grappler, Kung Fu 4
Description: When Sakura was studying under Dan trying to learn the mysteries of the Dragon Punch she interpreted his teachings in unexpected ways. Although she could not replicate the Dragon Punch the way her idol Ryu does she developed and perfected the Sho-ouken to take its place. Rushing at her opponent she strikes and uses her momentum to carry her up into the air with a high-flying uppercut. Since it's inception other fighters have observed the technique and added it to their arsenals.
System: This is considered a dashing maneuver and requires a straight line between the attacker and the target. It strikes only once against an aerial opponent but if it interrupts them with the uppercut it causes knockdown. Unlike a Dragon Punch the Sho-ouken cannot be used to evade projectile maneuvers.

The fighter’s fist actually breaks the sound barrier as it rushes toward it’s opponent resulting in a sickening whoosh after the fact.
System: Sonic Fist reduces the damage dealt by projectile attacks by 1 if it interrupts them at the cost of losing two points of damage.

Description: The Spinal Smash is a down and dirty maneuver that most fighters consider highly dishonorable because of the risk of permanent injury it carries. However, for those looking to end a fight decisively it has earned a place of repute. The fighter grabs his opponent, slams them to the ground, then delivers a fierce blow to the back.
System: The attacker needs two successes on a Grab check to get the defender into position face-down on the ground. If this maneuver delivers eight or more health levels in damage the target's spine has been severely injured and they will be unable to sit, stand, or walk without medical intervention or until the injury heals - which is considered aggravated for the purposes of healing. The defender suffers an unpreventable knockdown and ends their turn in the attacker's hex.

Move: +3

Requirements: Punch ***, Athletics *, Spinning Back Fist
Power Points: Special Forces 2, Baraqah, Savate, Western Kickboxing, Wu Shu, Hapkido 3, Any 4
School System Power Points: Military 3, Any 4
Description: This move is an advanced version of a Spinning Back Fist. Instead of taking one step forward and spinning into a back fist the fighter dances forward taking several body-turning cross-steps before delivering the attack. The Spinning Knuckle uses the fighter's advancing motion to add power to the blow. Furthermore, the fighter actually delivers two back fists at the end.
System: The fighter gets to roll two damage tests as the fist connects twice.

Additionally, the fighter's dancing, turning steps allows them to evade projectile attacks. If the fighter interrupts a projectile attack with a Spinning Knuckle they get a chance to dodge the projectile just as if they had used the Jump special move.

Turn Punch
Cost: 1 Willpower (see desc)
Speed: see desc
Damage: see desc
Move: 2

Requirements: Punch ****
Power Points: Boxing, Savate, Thai Kickboxing 4, Western Kickboxing, Bando 5
School System Power Points: Boxing 4, Kickboxing, Grappler 5
Description: This heavy punch is one of the most potent special maneuvers available to the style. The boxer craftily works his way around the ring setting up his opponent for a powerful overhand blow. The boxer actually turns his torso away from his opponent and then twists all the way forward as he throws the punch. This turning body motion gives the punch its name and its power.
System: At the beginning of any combat round a player can initiate Turn Punch. This shows that their character is beginning to size up the opponent in preparation for the punch. During that same turn the player can use any other maneuver they want but the move has a -1 penalty to speed, damage, and move because the boxer is concentrating on setting up the Turn Punch. The 1 Willpower is considered reserved but not yet spent until the Turn Punch is actually thrown.

This can continue for up to four turns total. The player continues to use any maneuver they wish at the same –1 penalty. At any time, including during the very first turn, they can choose to execute the Turn Punch. The modifiers depend on how many combat turns the boxer was allowed to prepare the Turn Punch.

At the end of any round the player can choose to abort the Turn Punch maneuver at no penalty. The move ends immediately if they are knocked down, dizzied, or put into a sustained hold (GM discretion and depends on the hold). Additionally, while charging the Turn Punch techniques used can be individually aborted – with the –1 penalties that Turn Punch imposes – without ending Turn Punch. This maneuver cannot be the last punch in a Guren-Ken.

Example: The boxer executes the Turn Punch immediately. The modifiers are -1 Speed, +4 Damage, and Move Two. Conversely they could Block that turn (at the modifier penalties), Jab on the next turn, Move on the third turn, another Jab on the fourth turn, a Block on the fifth turn, and finally on the sixth turn the player decides to use the punch. It's modifiers would be +1 Speed, +7 Damage, and Move Two.

Vortex Palm
Cost: 2 Chi
Speed: +0
Damage: +2
Move: 1

Requirements: Punch ****, Focus ***, Palm Strike, Fireball
Power Points: Wu Shu, Kung Fu, Silat, Chin Na, Sumo Wrestling 3, Any 5
School System Power Points: Wu Shu, Kung Fu, Grappler 3, Any 4
Description: The Vortex Palm takes an ordinary Palm Strike and adds a whirling vortex of chi and air that repeatedly strikes the unfortunate target.
System: Just like a Palm Strike this maneuver does double damage for the purposes of dizzying an opponent if they are struck in the head (difficulty 8, called shot). The range of this maneuver is limited to hitting in the same hex that the attacker is standing in but it deals three damage tests to everyone in front of the attacker in that hex. This hits crouching and aerial opponents. The first test uses Strength + Punch for damage but the second and third use Intelligence + Focus. Anyone who suffers damage from all the tests is knocked down and thrown back two hexes.

Widowmaker
Cost: none
Speed: -3
Damage: +5
Move: 2 (max)

Requirements: Punch ***, Jump, Haymaker
Power Points: Any 1
School System Power Points: Any 2
Description: This move is similar to the Haymaker except that the fighter makes a short jump to increase the damage inflicted. Gravity and the punishing mass of the fighter propel the attacker's fist directly onto the target's head. This move is slow but when it connects it will often end a fight.
System: The fighter may jump up to two hexes toward an opponent before inflicting damage. Any target damaged by the Widowmaker suffers a Knockdown. Because of the over-hand strike involved with this move a jumping target will not be hit as the punch doesn't develop any real force until the swing is completed.

The Widowmaker is an aerial maneuver and can be used to avoid projectiles.
