Customization Notes

Styles: Unarmed styles with a strong body of kicks are popular on the big screen. These include Hapkido (p. 161), Kyokushin (pp. 171-172), Muay Thai (pp. 185-186), Tae Kwon Do (p. 200), and Wushu (pp. 206-207). Other styles made famous by movie stars are Aikido (p. 149), Jeet Kune Do (pp. 164-165), Professional Wrestling (p. 206), and Wing Chun (pp. 203-204). Actors often use training in modern art and sport forms to simulate Shaolin Kung Fu (p. 194) and Taijutsu (pp. 202-203) - but in a cinematic game, their skills might be real. Weapons show up in film, too, led by the whippy swords of Sport Fencing (p. 160), the trademark nunchaku and sais of Kobujutsu (p. 178), and the "ninja stars" of Shurikenjutsu (pp. 195-197).

Style Lenses: The watered-down styles that result from "Self-Defense" and "Trained by a Fraud" are suitable for a phony. An ex-contender would know the unmodified style.
