Feint (牽制, Feinto) is a basic fighting move in Baki the Grappler.

Description

A feint is designed to draw defensive action towards the point under assault. It is usually used as a diversion to force the enemy to concentrate more manpower in a given area, to weaken the opposing force in another area. Unlike a related diversionary maneuver, the demonstration, a feint involves actual contact with the enemy.

The first time a fient was used in the series could be during Kaoru Hanayama's fight with 13-years old Baki Hanma. Hanayama faked his right punch, and then he stopped to attack with his left punch.
