GURPS Martial Arts (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/)

Inscrutable masters from hidden temples. Special Forces soldiers. Swashbuckling pirates. Bare-chested brawlers.

GURPS Martial Arts (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/) brings fighting styles from throughout history to the Fourth Edition rules. From popular Asian bare-handed techniques to European combat arts to fantastic non-human training, this book balances realistic historical schools with cinematic feats from Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Hollywood. Recreate the greatest fighters in the world, or create a style to fit a new campaign, Martial Arts (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/) has the techniques and guidelines you need.

Not all combat options map to techniques and styles, however. Many require extensions to the combat system itself, so Martial Arts (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/) expands on the combat and injury rules from the GURPS Basic Set (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/basic/). Some of these additions are highly realistic, while others are extremely cinematic – but they’re all optional, allowing the GM to decide which rules apply. Customizing the GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) combat system has never been easier.
