The Tornado Jolt is a refined version of the Jolt Blow used by Jimmy Sisphar. It is achieved by twisting the body to build momentum then launch the blow. Requires extreme lower body strength to perform the move. 

ApplicationEdit

The Tornado Jolt is a typical hook. Its target is usually the head, but there is no specification in the manga. By twisting the body to its limits, the speed of the hook increases dramatically, giving a big amount of additional power. If fired at very close range, it will either make the opponent jump far away from the boxer or knock his head off.

Takamura is capable of performing this move on one foot.

Strengths & WeaknessesEdit

Since the Tornado Jolt is performed with a twisting motion and not a thrusting one, it's hard to punish counter-wise, and on the off-chance that it misses it can be thrown in combinations, in a way making it a more compact version of the Dempsey Roll.

One major weakness is its extremely slow and obvious wind-up. It's practically a telegraphed right hook from a distance, which is why Jimmy uses his large and fearless step-ins to shorten the time the opponent has to react or escape.

TriviaEdit
