    WRONG!

    Ryu is based on the founder of Shidokan who is also known as the Tiger of Kyokushin.

    Anyways Ryu does Ansatsuken.

    I hate that when I was a kid I actually thought you could learn to throw your ki.


    I really hate that there are people who are not kids that still think that.

    It's not all bad, those people generally fill our pics of disaster threads.

    In the anime, Ryu leanred Hadu from an old Chinese master. Then he learned how to refine it from Sagat (a Muay Thai champ) while in prison. He then sought out the guy who taught it to Sagat; Dhalsim, a Kabbadi sect Buddhist mystic monk. In all the material, they call Kabbadi a style, when it's a type of Buddhism.

    In the White Wolf RPG and the original video game, Ryu and Ken learned Haduken from their master, Guoken.

    Think so - used to be on TV, IIRC. Doing an image search brings up things like this, which have 'kabbadi' in the filename:







    So, looks like it has what could perhaps be called a 'martial arts' component - according to this site:

    Kabbadi is played by teams of 12.

    A player, while holding his breath, dashes into the opposing team’s area and touches another player or players to score, then wrestles his way back to his own half.

    He must reach his own half for the scores to count. If he fails to return to his own half the player is eliminated. Only seven players of each team are on court at once.

    While going into opponents’ territory the player clearly repeats the word kabbadi without break and without releasing his breath.

    A match consists of 20-minute halves. A team earns one point by throwing out each player of the opposition.

    Two extra points are added as a bonus when all opponents are out.
    'Kabbadi' just means 'holding of breath' - I suppose that could potentially be incorporated into the names of other things, like a religious sect.
