The Confrontation Beast Fist Akugata (臨獣拳アクガタ Rinjūken Akugata, "Confrontation Beast Fist Evil-Style") is a school of martial arts practiced by enemies of the Gekirangers. Founded by the Three Kenma, this martial arts school focuses on the principles of natural selection: that only those strong enough can survive the harsh and inhuman training while fully mastering the Akugata's fighting styles. It is based at the Confrontation Beast Mountain (臨獣山 Rinjū Zan) which Confrontation Beast Hall is built on.
Those that master it obtain their power from the negative feelings of the weak they prey on, making it into Rinki (臨気（りんき） Confrontation Qi), a form of Qi that is Geki 's polar opposite and brought about by the darkness in one's heart, used by the Akugata's members to perform Ringi. The ultimate form of Rinki is the Dorinki (怒臨気（どりんき） Angry Confrontation Qi), manifested through infinite rage and a desire to destroy everything.
The Confrontation Beast Fist style is a branch founded by Maku when he is talked into it by Long. Joined by Rageku and Kata, Maku killed his former mentor Brusa E before engaging his former friends, the Fierce Beast Fist's Kensei, in the Fierce-Confrontation Rebellion. The war ended with the Kenma's souls sealed in the 3-ringed Kenma Bracelet, which undergoes every few centuries to keep the captive souls from awakening. However, in his desire to become stronger, Rio revived the Confrontation Beast Fist style and revived many practioners of the style to serve him. Once obtaining the Kenma bracelet, Rio begins his battle against the Gekirangers. Overtime, Rio revived Kata and Rageku to perfect himself.
But after his defeat by Super Geki Red, Rio revives Maku to receive his training. However, Maku instead reasserts his authority as once more the leader of Confrontation Beast Fist style until his eventual death at the hands of the Gekirangers. Though Rio is now the Confrontation Beast Fist head, he is allured by Long to embrace the Mythical Beast Fist style before learning Long's intentions. Though he and Mele join forces with the Gekirangers, Rio knew they need to make amends and resolves to die while giving the Gekirangers all the Rinki his forces amassed so that they can reintegrate their two Beast Fist styles back into one.

The Three Fist Demons (三拳魔 San Kenma) are the opposing force to the Fist Sages, their former friends, and the founders of the Confrontation Beast Fist style. Losing the Fierce-Confrontation Rebellion, the Fist Demons were killed by the Fist Sages using the Virtuous Beast Sword, with their souls sealed within the Fist Demon Bracelet (拳魔の腕輪 Kenma no Udewa) while their bodies were hidden away: Kata in the mountains, Rageku in the sea, and Maku within Confrontation Beast Hall. But every 5,000 years, the Bracelet's power could be sealed if the item is brought to the sacred grounds of the Beast Origin Village.
However, Makirika's interference allowed the item to fall into Rio's possession, using it to speak to the Kenma prior to his attack on the city. Soon after, desiring their power, Rio revived each of the Kenma to obtain greater strength. However, while Kata and Ragaku willingly aided Rio, Maku usurped him instead.
Though the Fist Demons died for good, its male members slain by the Gekirangers and Ragaku by Long, they teach the primary Gekirangers their respective Confrontation Beast Fist styles and the Wailing Ball technique in the afterlife to defeat and seal away Long.
- Rinki Torrent Overpowering Heavenly Change (臨気奔流豪天変 Rinki Honryū Gōten Hen): The Kenma can use this Ringi to recreate the Rinki Soldiers and turn them into giant warriors.
- Wailing Ball (慟哭丸 Dōkokugan): The Three Kenmas' Secret Ringi, sealing the target into a ball of rock. The Gekirangers, infused with their Rinki, perform the Ringi for its original purpose: to seal Long away.
- Confrontation Release (臨開放 Rinkaihō): Exposes the user's Rinki in its entirety.
