Chicken katsu or pork katsu are cutlets, usually served with teriyaki sauce.

Not disputing they're cutlets, just the one time I'm actually on-topic and not asking for pics of rotties, I'm faced with the inscrutable meat-monk. Damn you meat monk and your tonkatsu!
I looked at Wikipedia, it said:
Kappo are healing techniques that often involve stimulation of specific acupuncture points. Kappo is commonly used in martial arts such as Danzan Ryu and Judo.
More specifically, kappo refers to resuscitation techniques used to revive someone who has been choked to the point of unconsciousness. These techniques, as practiced by the martial art of Judo, can involve striking specific points on the body, manual manipulation of the carotid triangle to open closed arteries, or manually opening and closing the lungs to allow air to flow in and out. The manual manipulation of breathing, which has some simularities with rescue breathing and [CPR], is called katsu.
Thanks, Der.Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

Does this work similar to Yoshimitsu´s healing technique in Tekken?

I just came across the Wikipedia article, and a link indicated what kind of techniques are involved with Kappo.
Rather than reposting the techniques they describe, I instead indicate the legal warning in the article:
There are many old methods of traditional resuscitation that can also assist the victim in recovery. If the outcome is less than desirable these interventions may not be defensible in U.S. courts. They have generally been replaced by CPR which is based on more modern medical knowledge. Among sports coaches and medical professionals in the U.S., CPR is commonly recognized as the appropriate response to a medical emergency.
