California-based stuntman, filmmaker, and videogame fan Eric Jacobus has taken on his first female movelist from Tekken, choosing the assassin Anna Williams for her kicking combinations and throws.
Jacobus comments on the first Williams sister’s style:
Anna Williams’ movelist is described as “Assassin arts” in the Tekkenpedia. She features a range of Taekwondo and Hapkido strikes and her throws are primarily Aikido/Hapkido with some Jujitsu rolls. In the mix are a few acrobatics, probably the same ones captured by Law/Lee’s stunt double, and some low strikes that smack of Karate. For fighting applications her throws are practical, while her combinations are less realistic, more geared for gameplay trickery.
Trivia: Jacobus changed studios in the middle of shooting Anna’s movelist, so you’ll see a variety of locations in this one.
