The Kikōhō is a Ki Manipulation Technique, and the secret technique of the Tsuru-Sen Style Dōjō. It is also one of Tenshinhan's signature techniques.


The technique is one of the special techniques of the Tsuru-Sen Style Dōjō, alongside the Air Dance Technique and the Dodonpa. The Kikōhō concentrates life energy at a singular point; between the diamond-shaped space that is formed when the thumbs, pinky, and index fingers of both hands overlap. The blast is then released in the form of a single blast, with enough power to entirely eradicate the Tenka-Ichi Budōkai, while at the same time leaving a deep crater in the ground. The Kikōhō was seen as a sure-fire-kill technique, embodying the principles of the Tsuru-Sen Style Dōjō; merciless death.

The technique does have one critical weakness, however. It drastically uses up the user's internal energy reserves; the technique uses up too much energy and it is typically meant to be used to decide a match in one single blow.[1][2][3]
