Slight correction

Great review. I hate to be that guy, but there actually was a large version of this toy produced in America. It was a Disney store exclusive, and though not full sized like the one pictured here, it was large enough for a kid to hold in their hand. It had no electronics whatsoever. While the Japanese toy line may have been uninspired, the American line was great, with the additional rangers and such. Again, thanks for the review.

I don't recognize the martial arts they use in any of these shows, but I know that a lot of "GekiRanger" was based on Chinese legend, martial arts, and culture & language (similar to the earlier "DaiRanger").

I read that Geki Violet's fighting style was based on kick-boxing. (He never used any weapons, BTW, except his GongChanger for summoning Shigeki attacks.)
