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.

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.
