Yuri Sakazaki, also known as The Wild Flying Swallow, is a Kyokugenryu Karate first female fighter, and the younger sister of Ryo Sakazaki. 

She always takes care of her family, despite the disagreements that arise because of her freedom-loving disposition and independence. Her father, Takuma Sakazaki, was the one who managed to train Yuri into an excellent fighter, relying on traditional training methods and a rigorous training schedule.

Yuri is the love interest of Robert Garcia.


Yuri Sakazaki is a young girl who is always ready to lend a helping hand to others and is capable of anything for the sake of her family. She does not always listen to her conservative father and, for example, cuts her hair short, but she does not forget his lessons and tries to improve her fighting skills every day.


Yuri Sakazaki fights with a Kyokugenryu Karate style of low attacks that better suits her thin physique. She can overtake any opponent, thanks to the alternation of kicks, uppercuts, and grabs.


Yuri wears sweatpants, athletic shoes, a top, and a belted Japanese robe. Her short haircut is always adorned with a red headband.
