Hamatulatsu

From PathfinderWiki

Hamatulatsu is an exotic but deadly fighting style inspired by the varying attacks of the hamatula, also known as a barbed devil.[1] It focuses not on defeating or killing one's opponent, but on crippling them with memorable pain and scars.[2]

Masters of hamatulatsu are known for both their aggression and resistance to pain. Known practitioners of hamatulatsu include the Sisterhood of Eiseth in Westcrown,[3] as well as their more wide-spread off-shoot, the Sisters of the Golden Erinyes found throughout Isger.[4] The Asmodeus-worshiping monks of the Shrine of Horns in Egorian are also known for their study of hamatulatsu as well as several other martial art forms patterned after the combat abilities of various devils.[5]
