Ippon Ken (一本拳, Ippon Ken; literally: One Fist) is a fighting technique.


Ippon Ken is a karate striking technique that uses the extended knuckle of the middle finger (or index finger) in order to strike a target. The technique is very effective when a fighter wants to atack a specific point of the opponent's body.

Every karateka can use this move. For example, Katsumi Orochi once used this technique against Roland Istaz during the Maximum Tournament Saga of the first series.
