Combat Arts in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice are "Active Skills" the player can use while in combat. Players will begin the game with only one available slot for this. You can tell which Skills are Combat Arts because these are outlined in red in the Skill Trees. Combat Arts are performed by holding L1 and pressing R1.

        Wish they’d let us hold more than one combat art at a time and maybe have a quick change for ninjutsu. Having to pause during battle to swap them is kinda lame

          Okaaay so I totally don't understand the editor, thought I was competent enough to keep adding what was missing. It looks kinda weird right now but at least it has more info, and none of it is gone. Mods and kind people please chip in and help complete this page! <3

            The damage that the combat arts that requires spirit emblems puts out is far to low in comparison to the spirit emblems required for them. Also performing these are typically a risk as you can't animation cancel out if an enemy suddenly does an unblockable attack, and the reward for getting them off isn't all that great (except for maybe Ichimonji: Double on Genchiro Ashina).
