One can achieve amazing things [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower by properly training the body.]] Many give the mystic training of the East far more powerful effects. In the mundane real world, if you want to blow up a city or fly, you're out of luck without a bomb or an airplane, but in these worlds, train [[TrainingFromHell hard enough]] and it will come. The fighting style is unambiguously superhuman or supernatural, having diversity and power beyond usual human and non-human animal capacity. It often overlaps with MartialArtsAndCrafts and frequently includes the DangerousForbiddenTechnique.

* In ''Fanfic/RyuugisTheGamesWePlay'', there are four known styles of martial arts that use Aura to empower the practitioner. Jaune picks up the White Tiger Style and runs with it so far he becomes the second coming of the founder in everything short of actually doing so.

** Spoofed with the Wuxi Finger Hold in the final battle scene -- flexing a single finger causes a massive blast wave that may or may not disintegrate the target. No one trained Po to use this [[WrongContextMagic hilariously inconsistent]] technique; he just "figured it out."'
*** Granted, the reason Po figured it out may be do the events of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3''; [[spoiler: Turns out that pandas were the original practioners of chi and the Finger Hold ends up transporting a mortal into the spirit world. It fails on spirit and main antagonist Kai, but Po uses it on himself before dragging Kai into the Spirit World as a loophole.]] The third movie in general moves on into full supernatural territory with martial arts.

* Mysticism in ''RuneQuest'' is all about supernatural martial arts, usually gained by giving in to temptation while trying to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. (Frankly, a lot of monastic disciples are really there just to advance to the point where the temptations offered are ''really'' good.) Some non-mystic religions offer similar powers; notably, in Mongoose Publishing's Second Age books there's a brawler who can literally hit you so hard your ''parents'' die.
