First of all, I would like to clarify that I am not an expert player of 
Virtua Fighter series... I just like this game a LOT :) This reference 
material is free for personal use and I hope you'll find it useful.

Please do not hesitate to email to me at DuelMasterNG@yahoo.com should you
have any suggestion.


Cheers :)

P/s. Don't forget to send USD1 to my paypal account, ngcheechong@netscape.net
     ... just joking (but I don't mind if you really do so :p)

Fighting Style : Hakkyoku-Ken

Akira failed to win the Third World Fighting Tournament. After he returned 
home to Japan and told his grandfather about his loss, he isolated himself in
a mountainside retreat to train rigorously to atone for his lack of ability. 
Whilst questioning himself, "What is true strength?", Akira was surprised to 
discover a number of devastating new moves. As he continued to improve his 
style, Hakkyoku-Ken, Akira felt his soul strengthening, and immediately 
resolved to fight in the tournament once more to demonstrate his improved
skill.
