The hedgehog (ハリネズミ, Harinezumi), also known as the porcupine, is Itagaki Manabu's Sunday punch. It is a swift combination of punches usually done with both hands.

ApplicationEdit

Itagaki throws a rapid barrage of punches at his opponent that pricks them over and over again. The punches are all aimed at the head. He has good control of these punches, and can weave them through the tiny openings of his opponents' guard.

Strengths & WeaknessesEdit

Though the power of each punch is minimal, the damage adds up because the punches rattle the opponent's brain, slowly pulling them out of consciousness. Itagaki has scored a TKO in the second round with this combination and with only his left hand. It's a very powerful combination, usually aimed to not stop until the opponent has fallen, in one breath no less, which has caused Itakagi trouble because of how exhausting it is. He regularly does intense stamina training however so this hasn't bothered him much.
