Arhat Fist is the fighting style employed by the Sound Four's Jirōbō.
This style of combat focuses on simple physical attacks such as palm strikes, shoulder thrusts, knee strikes, and punches augmented with Jirōbō's incredible strength. Jirōbō can easily defeat an opponent with one or two blows.
The strength of his attacks is greatly increased when his
cursed seal is active. For example, in his Cursed Seal Level One, he managed to strike back Chōji Akimichi who was using his Spiked Human Bullet Tank with just one blow.
