Welcome to the group. I am grateful for new members who take the initiative to post new and interesting topics, but I would like to point out that this style is purely fictional and would be completely ineffective in a real situation.

Oh. Did you intend for this to be an anime-only discussion? Or were you wanting to talk about real styles?
Because this group is more realistically inclined, but anime discussions [and any topic reasonably related to wars, warriors, martial arts, weapons, or any related subject] are fine as long as they are clearly designated for their purpose so as not to confuse people.

If you're intending this on being an anime discussion, may I edit the title to denote so?

hey guys!
thats not true that mugen's fighting style is fictional! in fact his style is really inspired by brazilian martial art called capoiera. that's really commonly practised in europe even. and yes, it can work out in real situations, you know ^__^ my friend practise this martial art.

my favourite anime fighting style is... mugen's from samurai champloo too!!!!! no suprise

Yes, Mugen's style IS fictional. The creator has stated he was inspired by breakdancing, not capoeira.
Furthermore even if it was inspired by capoeira, it is absolutely nothing like capoeira. Capoiera is an unarmed art, not a weapon art let alone a sword art, and even if it was, the base techniques are completely unrelated. Also, capoeira is not generally considered a practical method of defense for the same reasons TKD is not. Sure it can work out in real situations, but is it effective? No. It has many flaws which is why it is an incomplete art.

okay sure, u might be right. i only said the things i heard somewhere. but capoiera is similar, not saying about the weapon or anything, but the mix of sth like a dance and fighting. if u train sth even not useful for fighting it sure makes u stronger, even if its not practical, i think!

Yes it is similar, you're right. But it is still very different.
Even TKD has it's practical advantages. It can be used in a fight and naturally the practitioner will be stronger through it's training than an average person. You're absolutely right about that. Though it is far from combat-effective. This is what I mean to say.

I'll have to say Kenshin's Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu sword style, from Rurouni Kenshin. Even tough most of the things he does defy the laws of phizics its still one of the best anime sword styles.
As for unarmed combat i'll have to say Takayanagi Masataka's style, from Tenjou Tenge. If i remember corectly its inspired from Xinyi Liuhe, a real martial art, but it doesnt respect it completly. Still hes to only person in Tenjou Tenge that uses a real world fighting style, except Sagara Koji, who uses wrestling.
Also, most of the styles from Avatar: The Last Airbender are inspired be real world martial arts, and i think they did a better job than most anime at creating an eficient fictional martial art.

Sasaki Kojiro from Fate stay night style, it is great and beautifull, eventhough in reality his stance to use the Tsubame Gaeshi technique takes a lot more time then chuudan. Well that`s my opinion, Funny if there is trully one that can use tsubame gaeshi cause at the same time he will get Men, hidari do and migi do in Kendo, lol.
