In learning the martial arts of the continent, I've come to realize how weak and empty the disciplines I previously studied are. There is a technique called Hakkei. It allows you to defeat an opponent, not with strength but with the power your inner chi.

Tactics/Style

"Your stance leaves you wide open, and your moves are totally inefficient. All and all your fighting style is a mess . . . I swear, you are the most undisciplined fighter I've ever known . . . And the only one I wasn't able to kill."

Jin, Samurai Champloo Season 1: Tempestuous Temperaments (2005)
"You utilize erratic movement that prevent anyone from predicting them. But you must learn to make use of your intellect in the martial arts. By relying solely upon instincts and reflex you involuntarily reveal your limitations to your enemy."Kariya Kagetoki "Hand of God," Samurai Champloo Season 1: Evanescent Encounter (2006)

Personal Analysis: Unorthodox fighting style, possibly self-taught.
