Yep, though I don't know of a Tai Chi headbutt yet (at least not in the two forms I'm practising) .

Just that you don't yell the names of the moves, especially not in a fight…

As for Goju-ryu, I've never seen it performed live and in action (if you don't count Kabal in MK: Deception… in MK you may have tons of martial arts and styles, but most are rather shoddily executed), but hubby is a practitioner of Shotokan (like Sub-Zero in the same game). How do these styles compare IRL?
