Heroes who are skilled in one or more martial arts discipline (such as karate, judo, kung fu, Muay Thai, and Tae kwon do). Unlike their villainous counterparts who use martial arts for their own evil reasons, heroes use these skills to protect those who are too weak to defend themselves. They do it with pride and honor. Martial artists are also an advanced form of the Fighter heroes and are really formidable in combat. To qualify, a hero/heroine must demonstrate agility, timing, speed, coordination, accuracy, and good counter moves, not just strong punches and kicks.
