Netflix’s Tekken Bloodline is an anime adaptation of the Tekken fighting game franchise. Set between Tekken 2 and Tekken 3, the series focuses on longtime protagonist Jin Kazama and his journey as a fighter.

Growing up with his mother, Jun Kazama, Jin trained in Kazama-style martial arts, a way of fighting that primarily focuses on defense and parrying. The training helped Jin stand up to his bullies, but he was still a young fighter who had a lot to learn.

When a mysterious fighter attacks their secluded home, Jun tells her son to escape and find his grandfather, Heihachi Mishima, to continue his training. Heihachi then teaches him Mishima-style martial arts, a more offensive approach to karate.
