What Martial Arts Does Captain America Use? Steve Rogers’ Fighting Style Explained

Captain America is one of the best hand-to-hand combatants in the MCU. Steve Rogers actually uses 11 different fighting styles throughout the movies.

Captain America (Chris Evans) uses almost a dozen different martial arts styles in his many fights throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As America’s first super soldier, Steve Rogers was granted enhanced strength, speed, and endurance but he also perfected multiple combat disciplines, as evidenced by his epic fights with the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Batroc (Georges St-Pierre), Crossbones (Frank Grillo), his other enemies, and even his fellow Avengers.

“Limited resources can propel you to experiment more,” Roop said. “We enjoyed freedom in the kinds of stories we could dig into. Style balanced a tenacity in reporting and serious journalism with a sense of humor that could poke fun at the quirks of Richmond life — and ourselves. But our readers understood that we also lived and worked here, too, and were

The Day – Lyme Art Association celebrates 100 years Roaring ’20s style

Old Lyme — Dressed in top hats, flapper dresses and fascinators, members of the Lyme Art Association recreated the Roaring ’20s on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the association’s 100th anniversary.

In true 1920s fashion, the association hosted a family-friendly tea party, followed by an evening Centennial Frolic on its lawn, where artists and supporters of the association enjoyed refreshments while donning their costumes. Inside the gallery, exhibits included a centennial celebration and a gallery called “young impressions” meant to appeal to and highlight young artists.

The festivities kicked off early Saturday morning, when more than two dozen artists scattered throughout town, mostly on Lyme Street, to participate in an en plein air, or outdoor, painting exercise. The artists put up their easels and broke out their brushes to depict nearby landmarks including Town Hall, the Duck River Bridge and even the art association building itself.

By the afternoon, the artists
