-Official Monk Style Guide-
Created By Monk 2007 Finally decided to release original Guide which has been sitting around my old desktop for 13 Years.
Monk Style (M-Style) is concept and a fighting style within Korean Style that goes beyond limits to perfect sword techniques to conquer everyone without cheating with software and or hardware. The four major techniques of Monk Style are called Four Divine Gates; Dragon Gate, Tortoise Gate, Tiger Gate, and Phoenix Gate. These 4 Major Gates are called t Divine Gates.
Directions: Several techniques in Four Divine Gates are unique because they use at least two keys for the same command. You will have to modify the keyboard settings within the game in order to perform these techniques to its peak. However, it will take time to get used to these modifications. There is no specific key configuration for any of these techniques, but we strongly encourage you to play with the keyboard and mouse settings to your preferences.
Requirements: It is extremely difficult to perform some Monk Style techniques with frame-per-second lag, so a fast gaming computer with a good graphic card that allows high frame rates, a sensitive keyboard and or mouse that allows you to click and type quickly with ease is recommended. It is also recommended to have a mouse that supports five buttons or more.
-Dragon Gate - (Chung Ryong of East)-
The Dragon Gate is a very powerful weapon; it is full offense and brute strength. This technique is used to perform full speed Static Triple Butterfly.
Do not time it one Slash>Block combo at a time. Do the Key-Press combination at least six times per Jump. For example, according to the following Key Setting:
1 + 3= Attack, 2 + 4 = Block
you would press in a single Jump:
1>2> 3>4> 1>2> 3>4> 1>2> 3>4 = 6 Key-Presses / Each Finger Taps 3 Times / 3 Slash>Block Animations Executed
In other words:
1>2>3>4 = 1 Slash>Block Animation Executed
You can also do 6 Finger Taps for each finger which mean 12 Key-Presses in one jump. This is preferred.
You should see three Slash>Block combinations per Jump. Record a replay and you will see Animation Freeze from your character.
Stance Two is technically a messed up version of Stance One. Instead of having three Slash>Block combinations perfectly executed in one Jump, there will only be two, which would mean you are doing a Double Butterfly.
-How to use Dragon Gate effectively and efficiently-
Take advantage of your Key Configuration. The game limits us to two keys for each command, but most people limit themselves to only one.
"Do not limit yourself. Go beyond limits." - Monk
Some people may think that Dragon Gate is useless in combat due to lack of mobility, but ever considered using Directional commands along with this technique? Uneducated players would assume that Dragon Gate is all about "standing still and doing Static Triple Butterfly" while being vulnerable to a variety of attacks from your opponent.
Rather than doing it just standing still, you can press a Directional command and use its momentum to control your movement. Use the momentum of Single Butterflies for quick change in directions. Direct your movements with full control and do Ground and Sky Slash accordingly.
Only stand still while doing Dragon Gate when your opponent is standing at a corner or in small, cramped up areas where your opponent lacks space. If you do it while standing still in open areas, you will be vulnerable to “sword tapping”, meaning people can tap your sword to make you Massive and open you up. Always try to stick to your opponent. Psychologically, most people would try to back away from you, but if you stick to your opponent, it will be very difficult for them to walk out without being severely damaged.
-Tortoise Gate (Hyun Moo of North)-
This Gate is all about defending oneself to the fullest as well to counter attack.
Master the blocking technique while standing still.
Experiment with this:
Stand still and tap your Block button(s) as fast as you can and watch the animation of your sword. Key-press timing with only three taps of the Block button is possible, but I do not suggest it. It would be easier if you use two Block Buttons. Although with different types of hardware, the Key-Press method will vary, but it must always be controlled and done correctly.
Ctrl = Block, Alt = Block
Using one finger for each key, press...
Ctrl > Alt > Ctrl > Alt > Ctrl > Alt = Three Block Animations Executed
Ctrl > Alt = One Block Animation Executed
In the end, each of your fingers will only press three times or more if desired. Another method would just be pressing one Block Button, but you would have to tap the same button six times, which is harder. This is the same if you were to do Turtle Gate while jumping.
Your sword should not be in big movements (This is easy, but slow, inefficient and incorrect)
Instead, try to have small movements.
Record a replay of yourself and watch your sword carefully. If done correctly, you should see your sword freeze.
When you are idle, your Character’s right arm is neutral and will slightly move back and fourth.
For Animation Freeze, the arm and sword will freezes and your character leans a bit more forward. The tip of t sword should also be vibrating.
Practice this technique until you can make it constant with very little to no breaks in the Animation Freeze.
Make sure you have a comfortable set of key-setting. Create a preference.
Once you have mastered Tortoise Gate while standing still, try to add in the jump. When you jump, make sure you do not pause in between each jump. Let it flow with no delay. While in the air, watch your character's arm and make sure it Blocks at least three times per jump. Practice this technique until you can continue the animation freeze. It would be easier if you use two Block buttons as stated before. This means you are actually attempting six Blocks rather than three, but instead you are really only executing three Block Animations.
-Tiger Gate (Baekho of West)-
Baekho means white tiger. It represents agility and dexterity.
This technique is mainly used for aerial sword fighting.
Double Command buttons can make it faster, but Single keys are fine, but should be done in fast motions.
-Phoenix Gate (Ju Jak of South)-
This Gate is about intelligence, that one must be intelligent and flexible with perfection. There are about two techniques in Phoenix Gate; single and double-slash. In this Gate, you must rely on perfect timing to achieve full speed.
Steps: Slash>Block(Ground Butterfly) Do not cancel the Slash too fast or you will lose the hit. Sometimes allowing a little delay in between two steps is better. Practice until you can do it FAST. You can also do it while pressing Forward or do a Dash>Slash>Block combination.
Steps: Slash>Slash>Block Slash and then wait a little before doing the second Slash. Immediately after the second Slash, Block.
Or you can do the opposite way, which is to tap Slash really fast, wait for the delay and then block.
-Walking and Dashing-
In between each repetition of the combos, you can add in a Dash, or just press a Directional Button while doing Phoenix Gate.
-FAQ: (Frequently Asked Questions)-
Q: What is a technique?
A: A technique is the method in which one performs a move.
Q: What is a move?
A: A move is a combination of Commands.
Q: Does Monk Style require Mouse Rebinder and does Monk use it?
A: No, I never admitted to using Mouse Rebinder/3rd Party macro Razor mamba Jamba Kamba Nama etc.. or other fancy gaming products. keep in mind, they did not have these back in the days. These techniques are achieved through hard work after Years/Month's of dedication training in prison map and he strongly disproves of cheating. I simply used five-button-mouse which is 100% legit and is totally different than.

-The Concept of Monk Style and Animation Freeze-
Monk Style is an individual style. Monk created the name for it so that he can trademark a set of techniques that perform preexisting K-Style however advanced techniques K-style did not know or explain back then Just as K-Style was introduced by Kraise (Korean) M-Style was explained by Monk thus we were both above time back then GunZ community was not as educated back then. K-Style and M-Style neither was founded by the GunZ Creators but discovered by players from GunZ. These advanced techniques is to move at full speed and breaking basic limits. Monk Style is advanced techniques which is part of Korean Style which consists of mainly four techniques called Four Divine Gates;
"Monk Style is the idea of canceling the delay in between a Move to Command, Slash, Block, and Dash to its limit while only wielding a sword at hand."-SenseofTouch
Several reasons to why so many people think that several Monk Style techniques are done through the use of 3rd Part Programs are because of the "Animation Freeze" and or the speed in which it’s done. I have once been told that it is impossible to cancel the sword delay to zero speed. That is correct, but it is wrong to think that I am actually canceling the delay to zero speed.
When the appearance of Zero Speed Animation occurs, the person performing the technique in Monk Style will see all of the animation. Other people see otherwise. They will see the sword stiff up and freeze, leading to the disbelievers' assumption of Zero Speed Animation. This is similar to the Animation Lock in Wind Step because when performing it, only other people see the Animation Lock, not the performer who’s executing it.
The idea of Animation Freeze, as mentioned in the above quote, is also within the Dashing technique. If you do a Dash>Repeat combination with correct timing, other people will see you glide silently across the floor.
Animation Freeze means that you are at the limit to how much delay in between each combination of a Move, Sub Move, or Command you can cancel while only wielding a sword. Not all techniques in Monk Style involve Animation Freeze. Animation Freeze is only a feature of Monk Style. Monk took advantage of that fact and created his techniques to perform fast actions without cheating. Monk Style is all about pushing Animation Cancellation to the limit to reach its peak. It is purely legit and no less formidable than anything else in GunZ Online.
-Origins and History of Monk Style-
At first, it was difficult for even Sense to believe that Monk Style was legit, but he brought up the courage to do something that might have been totally fictional. He decided to do the unpopular thing amongst all other players, which had led him to become a victim to many personal bashings.
Sense tried to follow Monk's horrible instructions and used all of what he had told him as a base to continue developing on his own. He experimented with different key settings and tapping patterns, recorded hundreds of replays of myself just to check on his progression. It was when he saw his first Animation Freeze done intentionally that he concluded that Monk was telling the truth. It was only for a split second, but the Animation Freeze was there. He was very surprised and at the same time, very happy.
From that moment on, Sense began to fully support Monk. He had done a lot of philosophical brainstorming and research using provided replays, videos, old explanations, etc. He had several theories and eventually concluded everything with the concept and explanation of Animation Freeze.
Several loyal members of Monk clan made public explanations of Monk Style and they did not seem to truly understand it. Even they thought that Monk Style was an individual style.
It was when Monk told Sense that styles are just labels where he quickly removed that definition from Monk Style. For a while, Sense thought that Monk Style was “a set of techniques", but after some critical thinking, he concluded that Monk Style consists of a categorized set of techniques within Korean Style and with the use of mainly the Four Divine Gates, it’s an individual “fighting” style as well as a concept. The concept involved in these techniques explains how it is possible to execute them.
Sense used all this knowledge that he had obtained through several months to defend Monk Style from the public. Following directly under Monk, he became an Extraordinary and had earned him his current title.
