A martial artist is a practitioner of martial arts. Unlike swordsmen, who utilize bladed weapons, and marksmen, who use ranged weaponry, martial artists rely on their body for combat. Martial artists have not been shown to use weapons, although they may enhance their attacks by other means. For example, Lightning Max uses rocket-propelled shoes to strengthen his kicks; Volten enhances his attacks with electricity.
