Tekken's real life inspiration for Kazuya and Heihachi Karate of Mishima Clan.

Andy Hug is K1 champion, hailed from Switzerland. In Japan he is known as the "Blue Eye Samurai" and based on Kyokushimkai Karate. Died in 2000 due to leukemia, he is considered the one who popularized K1 with his cinematic fighting style.

His infamous chopping kick or axe kick.

Look out for the stunning backhand punch.

Namco must have use him as template for Mishima Karate seen in their highly successful Tekken game series.
