Kuma Shinken, or Heihachi-style Improved Kuma Shinken (平八流熊真拳/改?), refers to a fighting style created and developed by Heihachi Mishima himself for his pet bears.


While featuring mainly powerful and "animalistic" claw sweeps and brutal strikes, this fighting style is suited for highly intelligent animals, such as Kuma II and Panda, and allows them to use their primal instincts for skillful maneuvers that normal animals don't use, such as kicks, sweeps and combos. This fighting style also features some of Heihachi's favorite personal techniques, such as the Demon Uppercut and the Stonehead. Farts and other bizarre moves are also included.
