"Meditation is spiritual, Martial arts are physical, spiritual gentleness of Yin and physical toughness of Yang, the union of spiritual mind and physical body is what empowers Chi the breath of life that powers the Iron Fist."
― Danny Rand (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

The ability to utilize mystical combat in multiple forms of martial arts.

Also Called

  • Magic/Magical Martial Arts
  • Martial Arts/Kung Fu Magic
  • Majikkujutsu
  • Mystic Martial Arts
  • Supernatural Martial Arts


The user can utilize mystical combat in multiple forms of martial arts. Many of those who train in martial arts gain superhuman capabilities by learning to harness multiple forms of magic or other supernatural abilities.

Some techniques are often either a form of excellence or perfection of an existing martial art and sometimes users of the original tend to change or innovate the martial art to make it their own.





  • Only certain practitioners can master certain techniques; usually, this means finding the right teacher, but some are directly tied to bloodline or have less physical requirements (certain type of chi/ki, mental state, etc).
  • Time between learning it and mastering the techniques depends on the development of the user.
  • Abandoning or attempting a technique without actually training or practicing it could have terrible results and may sometimes backfire.
  • Some techniques are considered to be forbidden to use regularly in a bout and could deprive, cripple, strain or even kill the user in careless uses.
  • May need to learn some forms of ordinary martial arts first then later use mystical technique to utilize their powers.
  • Rivals finding the knowledge of the technique's flaws or openings will risk either a swift defeat or anticipation.
