Hado: Principle of Ansatsuken
Hadō: 波動 Surge
Ansatsuken's founding principle, believe it or not. The user focuses his or her will to gather a certain amount of ki and shoots it forth. Any other ki technique is just a different application of this principle.
This principle, as one might imagine, has seen a wide variety of uses and modifications, which have been listed from weakest to strongest. As new moves are introduced and current ones are modified, this list will always be subject to change.
Zanku Hadōshō: Performed by Oni. One of the few variations not used for attacking, Oni uses this for aerial mobility.
Gadōken: Performed by Dan Hibiki. He uses one hand for this, but fires a small ball of green ki which barely travels one foot (if at all) before dissipating. It's a bit more potent as an EX move. This is a decent way of breaking an opponent's offense, but pretty damn useless otherwise.
Hadōshō: Performed by Sakura Kasugano. A basic attempt that barely escapes Sakura
Tatsumaki Senpu: Principle of AnsatsukenTatsumaki Senpu: Principle of Ansatsuken6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Tatsumaki Senpū: 竜巻旋風 Tornado Whirlwind
This is the third principle of Ansatsuken and, sadly, the one least focused upon by comparison. For this, the user supports themselves on a spinning column of ki for a short while. Good for attacks, but can still be defended against, so it's best used in the air.
As stated, this principle has seen its share of uses, though not to the extent of the other principles.
Dankūkyaku: Performed by Dan Hibiki. Dan leaps forth and kicks his opponent thrice. Like all his other moves, this one is useless unless your foe's guard is down.
Tatsumanado: Performed by Sean Matsuda. Similar to Dan's Dankūkyaku in execution. However, Sean is a basketball player (and quite good), which gives his leg muscles strength to propel him farther and harder than Dan.
Shunpūkyaku: Performed by Sakura Kasugano. A decent attempt, Sakura travels forward in an upward arc before knocking her opponent clear across the ring.
Ansatsuken: The Style of the Murderous FistAnsatsuken: The Style of the Murderous Fist6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Ansatsuken: 暗殺拳 Murderous/Assassin's Fist
This deadly fighting style is used by many, but mastered by few. As one can deduce from the name, its primary use is for assassination, as nearly every move, special or otherwise, is designed to be a crippling or killing blow to the target.
The style is based not off of a certain style per se, but a loose concept, the origin of which is unknown. Some link it to Japan's Feudal Eras, others trace it to other countries. The elderly Chinese fighter known as Gen practices this concept with two interchangeable styles of Kung Fu, the Mourning Mantis and Hateful Crane. This analysis, however, will focus on the version created by Goutetsu.
Goutetsu: The founder of Ansatsuken Karate. He combined moves from Karate, Judo and Kenpo, and, with the application of ki, made his own style. The end result was a style that is, as a whole, lethal. He was aware of how violent his art was, but apparently did not think much on it. He knew about th

Shōryū: 昇龍 Rising Dragon
Another powerful principle of Ansatsuken. Ki is used to propel one upwards towards the foe. While the ascent is invincible, the decent is not. This can be used for reversals, to punish frequent jumpers and counter against rushing attacks.
Many techniques are based off of this principle, and they have been listed from weakest to strongest. As new moves are introduced and current ones are modified, this list will always be subject to change.
Kōryūken: Performed by Dan Hibiki. Not bad, but not good either. Heck, Dan barely has his arm stretched out for this attack. Overall, pretty weak.
Dragon Smash: Performed by Sean Matsuda. An original take on the move, Sean uses both fists to strike his foe. It's not as powerful as you'd think, however.
Kōryūrekka: Performed by Dan Hibiki. Better, but Dan can only get in about 4 hits. Moreover, he barely covers any ground with this Super Art, unlike Ken.
Satsui no Hado: The Surge of Murderous IntentSatsui no Hado: The Surge of Murderous Intent3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Satsui no Hadō: 殺意の波動 Surge of Murderous Intent
Every fighting style has its strengths and weaknesses. What they all have in common, however, is the potential to be misused and become dangerous. This is especially true for users of Ansatsuken Karate, for within every user lies the possibility of becoming a ruthless killer, by way of the killing intent known as the Satsui no Hadō.
As stated in previous analyses, Ansatsuken Karate was created by Goutetsu to be a brutal fighting style, with nearly every move to be a crippling or fatal one. In order to achieve this, one must be willing to do whatever to takes to be strong and victorious in battle. You must desire victory, crave it, demand it. Nothing must stand in your way…even if your opponent must die in the process. It is this desire to eliminate all obstacles on your path to strength and power that awakens the Satsui no Hadō within.
Once awakened, this tempting ki slowly but surel
Reflections of an Ultimate LifeformI stand at the edge of the ocean in deep thought, ignoring the tide as it washes over my skates repeatedly. I have been here for who knows how long, arms folded, eyes closed, unmoving. All the while, I contemplated the journey I have taken to get to where I am now. From the very beginning, I've been wondering the reason for my creation, what I was and who I was to be. My quest to find those answers, while not always productive, has never been boring. I have met many people and have overcome many hardships since my birth, but after all this time, I have come to realize that I've only just begun.Reflections of an Ultimate Lifeform4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
I have lived a long, long, long time and have seen much of the world change I have endured struggle and hardship I have experienced life and love. I knew I would outlive her, as well as the rest of my friends, but I have no regrets. I will always treasure the short time I spent with them all.
I am not alone, either. My children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren live on, and
UnspokenSo delirious with thoughts unspokenUnspoken7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Moments I cherish mean nothing to you
Rejection leaves the heart and soul broken
So I value deceit above what's true
But in my dreams, and in my waking mind
We walk together, seeking the unknown
We laugh as we leave this slow town behind
The King and Queen the world our golden throne
It isn't hard, you know, to live a lie
Contrary to the endless harsh critique
It's easy to charm people with false eyes
Keep back telling tears with flawless technique
I'll keep fantasies safe inside my head
The words I have rehearsed remain unsaid

*I know you know
I know what you did
Yeah, I found
So grateful, so grateful
You know I know
You know that it's true
Shut it down now
Throw it in
**Every time that you break down and cry
You know I want to say "I love you"
But there's a feeling that I feel inside
That stops me saying the words
Don't ever want to think about tomorrow
Cause we'll only live for tonight
That summer we spent every night
Lying in each other's arms
But by the time the winter came
It'd frozen up my heart
You tried your best to warm me up
But I can't take no more
Without you my heart will thaw
And we hold each other like
The world's supposed to end
And because of that fact
We both could pretend
That love does exist here
And we were meant to be
But how can we be now that I can see
We've become so ridiculous
That happiness oblige
We should be free for you and me
To cross the great divide
And when we go our separate ways
And become who we are
I'll still keep you in my heart
And we hold each other like
