Goutetsu has been thinking about this issue for a while now, and he's suggested the addition of a special maneuver to make up for this. Here's a draft version.
Prerequisites: Athletics 1, Strength 5
Power Points: Sambo 3, NA Wrestling 3, Any 5 (In our house game, I would also give this to Professional Wrestling and other house styles, but these styles aren't part of the core rules.)
Giants walk the earth. From the patriotic world warrior Zangief, to the violent man child Hugo, and even to the Mayor of Metro City and the King of Muay Thai, giant fighters have often found a home, of sorts, in the street fighter circuit. Fighters are wary not to let these giants get too close... because once they grab you, it's already too late.
System: This maneuver may be used to modify any other maneuver that does not already cost Willpower. The card must be played alongside the modified maneuver. A Fierce Punch becomes a "Giant Fierce Punch," a Throw becomes a "Giant Throw," a Suplex a "Giant Suplex," and so on. The speed, damage, and movement of the modified maneuvers stay the same, but the maneuver gains +1 to its reach. This means that a Giant Attack applied to a Punch or Kick can hit an opponent one hex away from the fighter, and a Giant Attack applied to a Grab can catch opponents in an adjacent hex.
Cost: 1 Willpower
