Default Re: Batman's fighting style - new Batman, what should his fighting style be like ?

If that means pulling his arm in a way that every muscle strand in his shoulder gets ripped to shreds, so be it.

I think this clip is a good example of the brutality I'd like to see.

Agreed. I would like to see a great deal of efficiency and variety to Batman's technique. Joint manipulations are definitely under-utilized on film, especially past Bat-films. Bruce needs to use brutal efficiency in taking out his opponents. That scene from Ip Man does show that idea, but style-wise it seems too choreographed and tournament-y (which makes sense given the scene.) I'd like for Bruce to have a rather non-descript style. It shouldn't look like typical kung fu or karate or what have you. It should look more like a modern defence art used by special forces or what have you.
