The disciples were seven legendary masters of the martial arts trained by the great Armless Master. Their sensei was killed by Lady Shiva while she wore the Mask of Tengu as the Bat Spirit, and they swore revenge. Bruce Wayne wore the mask as part of his intensive training regiment and he was forced to fight all of them in order of increasing difficulty while he developed his combat skills.

- Catwoman and Hellhound are both also students of the Armless Master, although neither of them are considered his actual disciples.
- Although there were seven disciples, Bruce Wayne was only shown to fight six of them in the comics. Maybe the other one was simply never introduced in print.
