@dragonsparking Oshieru tapped the top of Rip’s head with the staff and a white and red Gi appeared on him, it was similar to Xander’s temple Gi without the long vest except the sash was white. He floated back and held up three fingers. “If you can hold out for three minutes without using any power against Xander, then I will teach you the basics you need to know.”
“This doesn’t seem all that fair,” Xander said relaxed with his hands behind his head. “I mean this is just—“
Oshieru waved the staff as thick, heavy shackles appeared on Xander’s wrists and ankles, causing the Hero of Light’s hands to immediately drop to the ground with a loud thump. “Material that originated from a sister universe. These make dense stars feel like old wood by comparison.”
“You’ve had something like this up your sleeve this entire time?!” Xander struggled to get into his stance.
“Two more things,” said Oshieru with a smile. “Xander, you’re not allowed to use Mushin during this little exercise, but you need to get a better understanding of your surroundings without your vision.” He snapped his fingers and a blindfold appeared wrapped around Xander’s eyes. He clapped his hands together. “You may begin when you’re ready.”
