    I thought I would mention something many martial techniques leave physical signs on their users particularly if they are advanced rank for instance those which are hands being used as weaponry build up callouses Offensive techniques that are not prepared may still be visible in this fashion if not necessarily identified.

    The defensive ones often show themselves in subtle changes in movement for instance may be observed in a change how the character walks and similar things (The wearing of Woad and Tattoos are mentioned above and can be identified as something other than normal makeup or skin marking and are another visualization).

    Most techniques not requiring focus which are not prepared are impossible to discern. Some few are only visible and identifiable when prepared or even when used AND this may be noted in their descriptions. The technique humble elocution being an example.

    Many techniques may be presented with what amounts to flavor based limits some like this are designed to encourage use of martial defense techniques with them. (they should be called out explicitly)
