Mishima Style Fighting Karate
Mishima Style Fighting Karate is a fighting style that is used by many characters in the Tekken series. Signature moves of this fighting style include "Rising Uppercut", "Dragon Uppercut", "Tsunami Kick", "Flash Punch Combo", "Demon Slayer", "Spinning Demon", and "Demon Scissors". They also all share a 10 Hit Combo (f,f,N,2,1,2,2,3,4,4,1,2,1).
While the style itself does not move outside the Mishima family, there have been instances in the older games, most notably the first Tekken game, where other characters would have the same moves, such as Armor King who was able to use moves similar in animation, properties, and damage as the Dragon Uppercut and Rising Uppercut.
As the series progressed, the moves became more and more dissimilar among the practitioners, e.g. Heihachi performing the Flash Punch Combo in one way, but Kazuya doing it in another way, when initially, the two characters had executed the moves exactly the same. Also, the fighting style branched out more with each character gaining even more moves that were uniquely their own, effectivively creating different variations of the same fighting style. In Tekken Tag 2 if both characters practice this martial art then they will have a special tag throw where the leader will perform a "Stonehead" while the second will perform another from behind.
