Nanto Gokuto Ken  (南斗獄屠拳 Prison Slaughter Fist).

The technique Shin defeated Kenshiro with when he stole Yuria away from him. A flying kick which cripples the enemy by slicing the tendons in their limbs. In the anime series, Shin performs this technique against Ken during their rematch, but it proves ineffective the second time around.
It is renamed Nanto Gokusatsu Ken (南斗獄殺拳, Prison Murder Fist) in the 1980s anime series and movie because the kanji (to) could cause offense to Burakumin butchers.[1] In the PC game Hokuto no Ken Gekiuchi 3, Gokuto Ken and Gokusatsu Ken are both featured as separate techniques.
