Shirahama "weak legs" Kenichi is a typical high school student with typical problems: he's frequently bullied and tends to run away in the face of his enemies. Things change when Kenichi meets Furinji Miu, whose grandfather runs a dojo; and not knowing what he's getting himself into, he signs up to become a disciple. As Kenichi's life-threatening training continues and he becomes more and more powerful, he inadvertently becomes the target of the deadly gang called Ragnarok. With mental and physical challenges ahead, can Kenichi survive his encounters with Ragnarok, or will the masters of his dojo get to him first?
Ken and Ryu are no ordinary teenagers; through a friendly rivalry and a desire to master their fighting skills, both have become powerful martial artists. Power has its drawbacks, however, and when an evil syndicate known as Ashura sets its sights on them, they must grow even stronger and fight for their lives. Controlled by the dark and mysterious Bison, Ashura will stop at nothing to further Bison's sinister goals; but Ashura is just the tip of the iceberg...

In Kenichi, Kenichi is trained by multiple martial arts masters of different nationalities under the roof of one dojo teaching him a variety of techniques so he can defeat Ragnarok.
Both are about protecting those who you love from those who want to due harm.
