User Shinigami

Hakuda (白打, White Hits) is a close-combat style of fighting, in which one is unarmed and uses only one's body, and is one of the four basic fighting styles of the Shinigami.[1] Captain Suì-Fēng of the 2nd Division excels in this style.[2] High-speed Taijutsu (体術, Body Skill) attacks are used to overwhelm the opponent.[3] Physical strength and skill is determined by this class. It seems to be a combination of several martial arts.

The foremost practitioners of this technique are those assigned to the Executive Militia of the Onmitsukidō.[2]

Techniques

Notable Users

Master Hakuda Combatants

Masters of this art can take on average armed opponents and those many times their size easily, and, as mentioned before, the Onmitsukidō are the best-trained Shinigami in Hakuda. The 2nd Division captain and their 3rd seat, or head of the Detention Unit, are most often the premier masters. In particular, the Detention Unit head must prove their mastery of Hakuda to even be considered for the position because the Detention Unit's prison, the Nest of Maggots, is a weapons-free zone. Anyone who enters must be able to, or be under the protection of one able to, completely protect themselves with only their bare hands.



Expert Hakuda Combatants

Experts of this art can take on average armed opponents and those many times their size easily, and, as mentioned before, the Onmitsukidō are the best-trained Shinigami in Hakuda.

They are well versed in hand-to-hand combat in instances where they are lacking in a weapon or need the use of the skill to give them an edge in battle.
