Much as Melee covers the vastly different array of weapons from swords to spears to axes to and beyond, the Brawl ability represents a wide variety of unarmed combat techniques including untrained brawling, professional wrestling, and the precise forms of a large number of Martial Arts Styles.
Martial Arts are often associated with the Brawl ability because they are based on understanding of the user’s essence flows and personal enlightenment, which is most easily expressed when unarmed. This does not, however, mean that all Martial Arts require Brawl, nor that they must use Brawl at all (see examples such as Drifting Clouds Style).
