Bugei Academy had restored much of its lost glory since the quake. A new gym/training area had been created and was now open to students who sought summer training. This included a fair bit of students still walking back and forth across the rebuilding schoolyard. Eager to learn and push their futures forward. The rain was coming down hard as kids ran back and forth between the building or the parking area. The crashing sounds of thunder boomed in the distance.
However, inside the building was dry and the pleasant sounds of rain slamming against the clear glass windows of the new training area gave off a zen like atmosphere.
In the center was a sparring area that students could use. It was currently in use. Four third years entered it dressed in combat uniforms. They were all members of the Kendo club. They were here to spar with a very well known instructor. All of them pulled practice swords from the wall and got into position waiting for their instructor to arrive.
Out of the entrance on the other side walked in Izuki Kai clad in his normal black attire tench coat still on, his hair slightly damp from the rain outside. His arrival had drawn the attention of students around the training area and they quickly moved to try to get a good view of the head Elite student. Rumors always surround those in the elite class and Kai was no exception. Girls muttered about how and if they could approach him and boys wondered if they could get him to take them as a pupil. Of course neither was an option. Kai gave off an involuntary vibe of uneasy and distance when approached. Most likely due to his attitude towards everyday life.
Kai began to speak to the four third years in front of him. "You asked me to assist in your training by sparring with you. Understand this means I won't be holding back at all. If you want to improve you must do so as if it were a real fight."
He picked up a Training sword as well and motioned to the four students."Come at me. Do your best and don't hold back at all."
He entered his stance crouched down a little his blade placed in an Iaido stance as the four students spread out to surround him.Battle msuic
There was an odd moment of calm before the students rushed Kai. Their blade came at him however, Kai didn't move. He waited for the moment ... the best possible moment before moving. He drew his blade with a lighting fast motion sliding under the students guard that was standing in front of him. The blade slammed into the man's chest before Kai rolled way from the other three blades. He regained his footing and spun back to fast his opponent.
With the added momentum of the turn he aimed a strike at the opponents head. It connected and the student dropped his sword admitting defeat. Three left. They turned to face Kai and he stood up watching them as they tried to surround him. This time Kai took the offensive running at the student directly in front of him and swinging low sliding under the boys defense and connecting with his knee. The boys knee collapsed as Kai turned to face him after his dash had put him behind the boy allowing him to strike him square in the back.
Kai moved gracefully every movement planned out before hand. It was dance and he was the performer. With only two opponents left Kai took the offensive again rushing them down with relative ease. The first one he was able to disarm with a counter then trip up with a leg sweep. For the final opponent Kai blocked a strike and turned leading his opponent to slide past him. Taking the opening Kai slashed at the man's back. With that all opponents were down for the count.
All around him people stared at the Elite year who had just taken four third years down without breaking a sweat. There were some claps and cheers from the female student body. However, they died down as the handsome Elite spoke. "You all need to focus on deception. I could see through all of you. You rush in to quickly and expend far to much energy. Think on this, I can see that there is little more I can teach you today with the display you have given me. Perhaps at a later date then."
With that very blunt answer kai put his practice sword away and retreived his real weapon preparing to leave.
