Basic Style  Basic Style is strongly defensive, with a -20SM and a -20 dam mod; there are no bonuses on the single attack, and it is weapon-adverse.
Untitled  The Untitled may master up to three maneuvers.  The first two are nearly always Quick Stand B4@4 and Fall Impact Absorption B4@6, important defenses against other push and throw styles.  The Foot Sweep B7@2, a standard attack with a tactical function, is usually third.
Master  The Master adds one or two of the four leveraged attacks, most likely the Focused Push 7@3 and the Power Throw 7@3, but possibly the Body Slam 7@3 or Head Slam 7@3.
Honored Master  The Honored Master is accomplished at three of the leveraged attacks.
Most Honored Master  The Most Honored Master is proficient in all four leveraged attacks.
Most Highly Honored Master  The Most Highly Honored Master usually finishes with professional level in the Muscle Blocking B7@4 attack deflection technique.
Overall  Overall the style puts most of its basic effort into defense, but compensates with some very potent attack maneuvers.  Two of those maneuvers would be useful in ring competition (limited field) combat.  However, it has no disarming or disabling maneuvers, and no sensory training.
 If in the course of examining this material, you want to know more about AD&D, there are at least hundreds of sites on the web which may help; I'll just recommend my own two:
M. J. Young's Dungeons & Dragons Materials as source material for many campaigns and situations;
and all you need to create a character, Character Creation for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First Edition.
And if in the course of examining this material you want to know more about Multiverser, check it out at:
