*laughs and walks a little bit away* It is, it is! However, while that is important, how fast can you adapt to a changing situation? *I punch into the ground and a chunk of the concrete pops up, I then kick it at you*
Kaos was caught off guard by the quick attack and didn't have time to dodge. "Karite!" He brought his zai together and a double bladed scythe made of shadows sprung from them. He slashed at the concrete, splitting it in two. The pieces fall on either side of him. The shadows disappear and the zai return to normal. Kaos was breathing heavily since it was a technique that used up quite a bit of energy. "That definitely was unexpected Art-taicho."
*chuckles* Rule number one! Now, you want to know what I see here. *looks around* I see the concrete here, which I can use for potential cover and obstacles. I also see the sky, which if I combined the use of red flame cannon, I could use to gain some higher ground and launch an aerial attack from above. I also see the sun, which I could use to help blind my opponent for a split second by reflecting it's light with my zanpakuto to make an opening. The battlefield is not merely a place to fight my friend, it is a place that changes, and can also be used against your enemy, if you have the knowledge to know how to.
Kaos began seeing the things that Art had been talking about. Some of them had come across his mind, but most of them he didn't realize in his first analysis. He never thought of a battle field as always changing. He usually went in with one plan of action based on what was presented to him at the start. "I will make sure to remember that from now on. I can't just look at the overall area once, I need to keep looking and update my strategy at all times to fit with my surroundings."
Exactly! Now you're thinking like a captain! *slaps your back* Onto the next training site! *walks over to the kido practiving area and goes near a catapult with a dummy in it* When I pull this lever, I want you to fire a kido spell!
Stumbles a little after getting slapped on the back. Kaos turned a little red. He didn't think he was anywhere near the qualities of a captain. "Thanks Art-taicho." Kaos followed him to the next training exercise. "Yes sir!" Kaos preps himself, gets into a stance and readies one of his zai. "Ready!"
Kaos watches as the dummy flies higher and higher. He takes aim. "Hado #63: Raikōhō (Thunder Roar Cannon)!" A mass of yellow energy erupts from the sai and shoots up towards the dummy, engulfing it. The force of the energy also made Kaos fly backward. When the energy dissapates, pieces of the dummy are raining down from the sky. Kaos gets up off the ground and walks back up to Art. "How did I do taicho?"
*10 small red orbs form on the tips of my fingers* Hado# 31 Shakkahō! *swipes my hands infront of me and the orbs fly into the air and surround the dummy, I then close my hand and the orbs converge towards the dummy colliding and forming into a huge explosion, then I put on sunglasses* BOOM! Hahaha.
Simple really, well not really but here is the beginner version. *forms a red flame cannon in my hand and holds it* As you can see, the red flame cannon is pretty basic. What I simply do is divide it up into fifths in each hand, then fire it off. Each ball only has a fifth of the power of a normal red flame cannon, but when you bring the energy back together suddenly, it becomes unstable, creating a large explosion on collision.
"Thank you sir!" Kaos pulls out his zai again and throws them both high into the air on either side of him. He points his hands out, targeting the dummy. "Hado #63: Raikōhō!" This time the spell came out from three separate points: his hands and the two zai spinning in the air. He timed it so the spell would shoot from the blades when they were on target. The multiple yellow beams came together when they reached the dummy and created a huge explosion. The zai came down a few feet behind him, stabbing into the ground. He picked them up and walked over to Art. "When you split your's up, it gave me an idea to do something like that since I can shoot lightning type kido spells from my hands and my zai. So I did what you did, but on a slightly bigger scale. Was that better?"
Kaos takes the cash, but is a little confused why Art was giving it to him. If anything, Kaos should be paying him for the training he gave him. "Uh yeah. Thanks Art-taicho! I think this training will really help me become stronger. I will come get you when I am ready again." Kaos nods and runs off.
He knew straight to where he was going to go. He hadn't seen Hana for a while and he was wanting to tell her all about the great training he just did with Art. Plus he still had to get her that meal after she beat him in their last sparring match. He headed towards the 4th division.
