Hitomi vs Tifa

Hitomi using a Wing Chun hold on Tifa, in 'Dead Fantasy III.

Wing Chun (Chinese: 詠春; pinyin: yǒng chūn; literally "spring chant") is a concept-based Chinese martial art, and form of self-defense utilizing both striking and grappling while specializing in close-range combat.

Hitomi uses this fighting style in against Tifa Lockhart in Dead Fantasy III, but she has not used this style in the Dead or Alive series.


Wing Chun distinguishes itself from other types of martial arts in that it relies on superior techniques instead of superior strength, and places greater significance on defense rather than offense.

Moreover, a Wing Chun fighter is dogged in his offensive strategy, even if the defensive strategy commands greater importance. The attention paid to the defensive strategy is ultimately what provides the fighter the self-confidence necessary to pursue the opponent relentlessly, and this dogged pursuit also contains a psychological element that can eventually render a larger opponent despondent, leading to forced errors.
