Ju Roku Hashira no Karate (十六柱の空手 "Karate of the Six-Teen Pillars") is a fictional style of Karate introduced in Dragon Fighter series.


This martial art has been created by some descendant of the human bloodline with a demonic gene with large superhuman powers.

The core of this power is guarded into the secret underground of a Shinto Temple whom the entrance is a colonnade of six-teen pillars. Each pillar represents a Mantra syllable of essence for this gene.

Ju Roku Hashira

The six-teen Mantra syllables of essence for the gene, represented by each pillar, are:

  • Gaa
  • Garjh
  • Ish
  • Vara
  • Bag
  • Avath
  • Da
  • Dati
  • Piza
  • Cadi
  • Pica
  • Kunda
  • Lini
  • Asu
  • Rya
  • Azis

From these syllables could be derived a sentence: "Come to us Supreme God of Thunder, donate to the Ophiuchus's Ignis Fatuus the Serpentine Fang".

This sentence could be associated the statue on the main altar of the temple which represents a mythological warrior, similar to a Nio guardian, holding a three-headed Cobra. This figure reminds the Ophiuchus.
