Ancient Martial Arts is a old, and undefined form of mixed martial arts, not much is known of this fighting style or its creation. It specializes in different forms ranging from locks, speed, and purely training Exercises. However, this style appears to be very versatile, as Ogata, a master of this style, was able to teach it to four of his disciples, adapting it to their individual fighting styles, allowing for greater variety of attacks and techniques. Because of how adaptable this style is, many of the techniques and training exercises used in this style can easily be used for the physical development of many fighters, allowing many fighters the ability make their own arsenal of techniques and basically make their own personal martial art style. The only current example of this development is the street fighter Shougo Kitsukawa who is only learning the exercises of this style in order to turn his unique instinctive street fighting style into his own personal martial art. Moves of this style include throws, palm strikes, body locks, kicks and movement-aiding techniques. Practitioners include Ogata, Ryuto, Shougo, Rimi, Sho Kano and Lugh. Ogata started using this style after leaving Ryōzanpaku and using techniques he learned from Akisame Kōetsuji, Kensei Ma, and Hayato Fūrinji.
