"In the world of Karate, Baki Hanma - Grappler Baki - is a complete mystery. No one knows where he came from or where he learned his fighting style. But he knows you. He knows all the fighters - their styles and their weaknesses. When you make your first move, he'll know how to block it. He can defeat an opponent with a single blow. If you blink it's all over. Even when you lose, feel lucky that you aren't him."
"Now Baki's in for the fight of his life. At the Shinshinkai Organisation's private arena, anything goes and the odds are always stacked against you. For the first time, Baki must fight an opponent he knows almost nothing about: Kosha Shinogi - The Cord Cutter. He possesses the ability to penetrate his opponent's skin, grab their cord-like nerves and rip them out - leaving the victim paralysed or dead."
"It will be Baki's greatest challenge, and possibly his last. But he might just survive if he doesn't lose his nerve first...."
