Mian Chuan, also spelled Mian Quan, is a northern Chinese martial art. It is also used by Mileena in Mortal Kombat: Deception as a fighting style. The theory for this style is that defense becomes offense and softness turns to hardness, and the practitioner's attacks always follow after the opponent's. Soft attacks gain the upper hand for a practitioner and sets up the opponent for a harder, more dominant array of movements.
Mian Chuan does not require advanced movements such as grappling, using only punches and kicks, but does demand balanced posture, a mostly relaxed body, and a short attack range. There is no definite record of the creator or origin of the style.
