New Martial Arts for Cyberpunk 2020

New Martial Arts

Author: Hound. Used with permission.

Originally I had proposed a sweeping reform of the hand to hand combat system in Cyberpunk 2020, but with the arrival of The Pacific Rim Sourcebook, most of my demands were satisfied.
Instead, I propose several new martial arts to be added to the Martial Arts listing, as well as the removal of several others that were too generalized. I’ve also included a few martial arts that were added to the game previous to Pacific Rim but were not included in that book’s listings (mostly from Listen Up You Primitive Screwheads!).
For descriptions of the Martial Arts listed below, I recommend any good Martial Arts reference book, or the GURPS Martial Arts from Steve Jackson Games, or the Ninjas and Superspies book from Palladium.
