It all starts with the many trails and hardships of a young boy. At first glance he seems like any other young man trying to make his way through society, but he has an odd hobby. He seeks out strength more than anyone else! Six floors under the Tokyo Dome exists an frightening place. A literal "sacred ground" for those who desire power! A place that exists for the sole reason of deciding the world's strongest man! This is about non other that Grappler Hanma Baki!

Son of Ogre 197

His Heart Sings with Glee.

Fighting Premonition.

Chapter 197 - 堂に入る - Become a master.

Retsu: He's no good, it'll be too dangerous.

Retsu turns down a sparring match with the champion. The reasoning is that he cannot put forth his true strength...!?

Coach: You ... saying that with such a loud voice. Are you an idiot ...?

Retsu: You should not look upon martial arts lightly.

Akio: Somebody put gloves on him.

Coach: Not my problem now, it can't be stopped anymore.
Coach: There's really no need to say it, kempo and boxing are different.
Coach: You are the one who's taking us lightly.

Akio: Hey Kempo guy, you can let loose kicks if you want.
Akio: You use them right? Kicks.
(~soniku: This guy sure doesn't know what he's dealing with)

Coach: Hey ... Akio ...

Retsu: Didn't you want to have a boxing match?
Retsu: Of course I have no intention of using kicks. There's no need to.

Retsu: Even so, I'm saying it will be dangerous for you.

Coach: Oh man ...

Akio: What's wrong you guys?

Akio: It's cause you don't hurry up and get him ready this stupidity continues!

Retsu: Coach.

Retsu: Moments before you said that boxing and kenpo are different.
Retsu: That notion is mistaken.
Retsu: As long as it makes use of the fist boxing is also kenpo.

Retsu: Furthermore it's imperfect.

Retsu: The basis for my argument, I will not display it here and now.

Retsu: Start the match.

There's an expressing "To become a Master"

The Position of Coach - Fukamachi Genichi 46

In a monthly boxing magazine said this

"He had a bad feeling about this"

"His stance was mastered"

"I believe Mani felt the uneasiness as well, he didn't move towards him"

"Retsu? He didn't move, not at all"

"What was Mani doing? I think he was troubled as well"

"Whatever bad feelings or presentiment one has, to punch the opponent makes a boxer."

"30 seconds or so past by"

"Mani's plan comes to excecution."

"It was perfect."

"Suddenly For the Right"

"I was thinking of the same strategy"

"Yeah ... that's right. Maybe I should have stopped this from the start"

"There's just no complaints about it. That wasn't something that could be called Boxing"

"No, that's a mistake"

"We just didn't know there was that kind of boxing"

Chinese Kempo has met up with Boxing. Will a door to a new martial arts be opened!!!?


  1. Thank you for the awesome upload and translation

  2. wow manny pacquiao had a scene with retsu... hahahha

  3. Poor Mani...he had no idea that retsu is one of the badest motherfuckers on the planet

  4. Sigh, I can at least take comfort in the fact that this "champion" is simply a poor imitation expy of the great Pac-Man. 'Cause if it was the actual person, he'd be all like BAM BAM BAM BAMBAMBAMBAM BAM BAM BAMBAM "Taste my fists, it's good for you!" Then even more BAMS!

  5. retsu got the hit....obvious...still cool

  6. Retsu sent da great pac-man flying...welcome to the world of baki...mayweather,ur next! lol

  7. Wtf did retsu join boxing in the first place?

  8. when will retsu fight mayweather. so that he can also lay his ass out.

  9. No real-life fighter could take on any of the people we have seen in boxing. Pacman would be eaten alive just like Ian MacGregor was during his stay in prison. Retus has already shown the ability to hit someone with force without touching them. Pacman would be demolished.

  10. the ring matches are soften with rules and shit, but kempo is kill or be killed, no Boxing glove, no Referee, no rules
