There is an assortment of martial artists who uses hybrid martial arts such as Thor from the Shinpaku Alliance, Hayato Fūrinji and Miu Fūrinji of Ryōzanpaku, Shōgo Kitsukawa from Yomi, and Mycroft from Yami.

The type of Hybrid Martial Arts that Miu Fūrinji uses the most is a mix of Furinji Style martial arts and gymnastics in order to stay flexible and versatile in battle.

- Rittoku No Kan (Sixth Sense Of Virtue): The user takes the five senses to the utmost limit and develops a sixth sense "Intuition" of "Perception". It allows the user to reduce their time needed for reacting to one-tenth. Miu states masters use this sense in the martial arts like a sensor to catch movements they can't follow with their eyes. When one becomes a master this technique requires the user to reduce their "Empty Space" and "Purity" to one-tenth as well.
- Fūrinji Benikawasemi: A fast and powerful kick from mid-air dealt to the head.
- Fuurinji Kouhou Yoku: After jumping above the opponent, Miu performs this attack with one leg held up straight above her head and the remaining pivot leg straight down.
