Ditangquan (alternative writing: 地趟拳, literally ground tumbling boxing) is a style of fighting that "obtains victory through negative grounds," its style is of ancient origin. The only known practitioners in the manga so far are Li Raichi and her father, the Ground Fist, Li Tenmon. It has been said that it originated from the Eight Immortals of Taoism. It is mostly aerobics and kenpo, but the Chishōken (as explained by Renka) is one of the more difficult forms of kenpo.
