Chambara Fighting

Japanese chambara movies and Hong Kong wuxia films use wires and camera angles to create the illusion of warriors catapulting through the air, battling while balanced on bamboo canes or telephone wires, leaping from rooftop to treetop, and generally ignoring gravity. Traditionally, fighters in these tales aren't comic-book superheroes, capable of flight and telekinesis. They're just so skilled at the martial arts that they can perform the most fantastic feats from martial-arts legend.

The rules below make it possible to simulate this kind of action. They make no effort to be realistic! Only use them in highly cinematic campaigns - and only for combatants who have either Trained by a Master or Weapon Master. Even in the most over-the-top movies, only true masters can perform these stunts.
