Hapkido
(modified version of the Style found on Goutetsu's Street Fighter page)

This Korean Martial Art borrows many techniques successfully from other styles; it is a combination of the Aidido, Jujutsu, and Karate styles of Japan with the Korean systems of hwang Do and Taekyon(percursor to Tae Kwan Do). It is a style that teaches focus on passivity in opposing force, countering and attacking with circular motions, and the absolute penetration of an opponent's defenses. A Hapkido practitioner receives a strong attack gently and counters a gentle attack powerfully and a subtle rhythm of attacks and counters develops in the combat. This perpetual and fluid rhythm, as well as constant mobility, are hallmarks of the style.
Hapkido is not incredibly hard to master, but a practitioner will rarely conceder himself a master until he has learned many other maneuvers than just those listed here. Many of the new special maneuvers, if used, would compliment the style well - Stop Weapon and Roll with the Hit, to name just two.
