    Ugh...that's a rough one, man. They should have a better system.

    That said, I'm no kind of Martial Artist IRL, so I dunno how good I'm doing.

    That's a good start. Check out a wide range of videos and books; there's a lot of 'my style is best!' and general wishful thinking in the martial arts. And it shows.

    It also depends on how 'realistic' you want your martial arts to be. ^_^ I'm talking about the fighting, not the magical side of it. Realistic fighting is chaotic, and lacking the 'back and forth' of a lot of entertainment martial arts. It's also messy; fancy techniques and overcomplicated 'first you do this, he does this, then you do that, which forces him to do -' kinds of combos just don't happen.

    I just started it too after several people recommending it. It surprised me how much I've enjoyed it.

    for your book you could dig into the lesser know marital arts like Combat Hopak ( Boyovyy Hopak).

    Dragon Ball Super: A new arc starts and it's a really solid and quite fascinating chapter.

    spoilers:
    Goku trains MUI with Whis, who confirms that the angels are perpetually in this mode and that Goku can still improve his mastery of it. Meanwhile, Beerus teases/suggests that Vegeta goes after some other type of divine power that would allow him to catch up to Goku again. The interactions here are really good and provide a little bit of development as well as hints to what's to come.

    But the main bulk of the chapter is all about introducing our new co-star, Granolah, and what might be the main bad guys of the arc, the Heeters. They have a neat kinda tribal pirate design. Granolah's past is partly and it does give him a natural beef with Freiza and the saiyans. There's a lot of moving pieces introduced here and I look forward to seeing how it all plays out.

    Good point.

    ...Nick Spencer's Amazing Spider-man is quite fun. Though, I question Sin-Eater being able to hurt and steal spoilers:
    Juggernaut's
    end of spoilers powers, even with mystical hell buffs.

    Then again, I don't what state spoilers:
    Juggernaut
    end of spoilers is in nowadays.
