    Midori watched his technique carefully; this was another new one that she was going to need to learn, and saw the rocks that he up heaved to take the blow of her leg, and she felt it strike solidly. As she saw another strike of the same nature moving to turn the rocks into projectiles, she pulled something out of her bag of tricks she had learned on her own during the countless hours of training she did against enemies that could withstand her blows outright and then counter. It was important to always remain mobile and adapt to the situation, and in this case, she was going to use a principle that he had just demonstrated.

    Using the rock as an anchor, she pushed Chakra to her legs to enable the limb to gain a bit of extra strength, and then used that to almost break-dance out of the way of the rock projectiles, sliding her body across the ground as it exploded in a movement that was extremely fluid and kept her momentum. Swinging her legs around again, she was back on her feet, and she was already in close range, so she used the dust cloud for cover as she tried to land a clean hit.

    Shoulder Charge

    Satori grinned as she vaulted to the side. Her mobility was getting better as well. The sudden charge through the dust caused Satori, however, to have the advantage. Unlike Midori his senses were heightened tremendously, he didn't need his eyes at all. As she barreled toward him, he simply sidestepped as the charge went past him. As she reacted to the sudden dodge, his hand opened before chakra fluxed through his limb: and suddenly exploded once more.

    The open palm smashing forward, aimed at her side. Instead of raw destructive power, the shape of the hand had changed so that it instead exploded outward like a shockwave.

    Slamming Palm.

    The force was condensed, aimed to send her flying back and off her footing as well as amplifying range so that it was more difficult to evade. Holding similar power, but using it in a different way as his lips turned to a grin.

    She sailed past him, but before she could stop herself for a follow up, she turned her gaze just in time to see another one of those empowered palm strikes aimed at her side.  There was no time to dodge this one, she needed to guard, and she did manage to bring an arm downwards to block the more vulnerable area on her side, but the side effect was that it tossed her through the air like a damn missile.  Still, this was no different than when Kiyoshi would toss her around during their little training sessions, and as such, she was used to this kind of movement.

    A shift in her body weight and a curl of her legs, she tumbled sideways like a log, hitting the ground once before her hand shot out suddenly, lifting her off the ground completely and allowing her to twist again and get her feet out and under her again, skidding to a halt.  She flexed her hand once, without looking at it, feeling the power surge there for a moment and then dissipate.  She would need to test it to make sure she understood the concept, and she was thankful she was built so sturdy, even without using her Cursed form.  Perhaps that was a side-effect, but for now, it was a distraction.  She moved forward, and then suddenly flipping onto a hand and performed the same trick he did, but releasing it before her hand touched the ground, launching her high into the air.

    Shattering Palm

    She came down like a meteorite, attempting to bring an open palm strike down upon him like a hammer of justice and drive him into the ground.  He could dodge, but the chances of being able to guard against this was slim to none.  She had to make the bastard move, and see if she could do it properly.

    Satori watched her fly through the air and nodded once in approval at her righting herself. It took quite a bit of body control to perform feats like that, training with their father likely helped. Grinning, he lifted up his hands as chakra flowed through them, and as she came flashing downward his eyes narrowed before his chakra suddenly pulsed through his limb in return. She expected him to try and block, or dodge, but he did neither. At least, not normally.

    Instead, as her own strike came flying down at him, his own shot up to match. The palms colliding together. Usually doing something like this was risky, the amount of timing it required was intense, but timing and counters, analyzing the movements of others and setting up traps was his specialty. The forces smashed together with his hand horizontal against her own so that the widest part of her hand was wrapped around by his fingers and thumb.

    Shattering Palm.

    ... Dispelling the force around them and leaving Midori airborne above him. His hand snapped around her own, the earlier positioning key for it before he suddenly spun and hurled Midori into the ground beside him instead using her own weight and position against her in a judo-throw with her arm as leverage.

    This was something that she definitely had not expect, but considering that she was facing Satori, that was about par for the norm whenever the two of them clashed. One thing that she noticed, and agitated her, is that no matter how she seemed to try to use different tactics, change things up, and overall catch him off guard, she never seemed to be able to do it. He was so quick at adapting it would make people's heads spin, but considering she was trying like hell to remain viable as his rival, she didn't like that nothing she did seemed to surprise him. She would get there, she was sure of it... but it was a long time coming.

    So when his hand struck hers with the perfect force, angle and speed, she was more than a little surprised, and definitely locked that information into her mind as she hovered in the air for just a moment before his hand struck out like a snake and grabbed her own. Instinctively, she also grabbed his, determined not to be at his mercy for the duration of whatever he tried to do next, but then he attempted to use her signature move against her. Midori was notorious for grabbing a limb of her opponent and smashing them into the ground and nearby objects repeatedly until they stopped squirming in a brutal display of strength.

    And now he was trying to do it to her. Luckily, considering they were both trying to limit their strength and speed, she had enough time to react and impliment the same countermeasure that he had used on her in this same scenario last time; she twisted and got her feet under her, landing on them hard. This next part was original though, as she used that same arm to yank him forwards, attempting to push another Shattering Palm into his chest.

    Satori grinned as she did the logical thing and contorted her body instead of allowing herself to be caught off-guard and thrown around like a rag doll. Now they were standing facing one another with one hand bound, it was an amusing sight to say the least.

    As her palm drew back to smash into him, Satori allowed himself to be yanked forward and instead of resisting, launched himself forward with it. Pushing himself past her palm and flying aside her instead as her palm touched air, missing his body due to his contortions by a hair as we flew past her. His left leg as he was yanked forward lifted, his knee bursting with chakra using the combined momentum of her pull, his lunge, and the chakra itself to smash into her side.

    Rising Knee.

    Taking advantage of the fact she had effectively pulled him into her inner circle, and past her base guard. His other leg and arm preparing for the next counter or block. Proud of how fast she was evolving.

    Midori knew that once again she had slipped into a position that Satori was finding advantageous in his favor, and she gritted her teeth; she didn't have the speed at this level to block or dodge this one, and as the wave of force smashed into her side, she twisted her arm and released him, simultaneously slipping out of his grip and allowing her to be flung a small distance away where she caught the ground and skidded to a halt, using a hand to assist her while another held her side, but her eyes never left Satori's own.

    She had yet to score a clean hit on the bastard, and it was getting to the point where even her normally controlled self was starting to get angry. That was greatly influenced by her own power, her blood excited at the prospect of a good fight, and she had to take a moment with the distance created to perform another iteration of Calming Steps, exhaling another small breath of the green Chakra and calming her mind once more. She knew she couldn't let herself slip into that state of mind; this was a mission and a lesson for children. If she transformed, she would only be inspiring fear and likely a demonstration of what a lack of control could do to a person. She didn't want to be remembered like that.

    As his knee collided cleanly, Satori relaxed himself as his body slowly lowered into a relaxed state. Hands clenching a few times as she clearly was getting angry at herself. But Satori said nothing, instead, he waited, and once she had calmed her mind once more he smiled lightly. Clearly proud of her for that before he would lift both hands and motion for her to come at him again.

    A few more of her uses of Arhat would likely allow her to claim proper knowledge of the techniques. From there he'd offer her the techniques of his own style, and even spread it to the children if they wished to learn it. It wasn't as though it was unique in concept, anything he made, he made for the village itself. Not just his own uses.

    Grinning he waited patiently in the Arhat stance for whatever came next from her.

    He gave her a moment to breathe, which had this been a real spar, probably wouldn't have happened; she had always been the one to keep up the pressure, and that is often how she won most fights. Midori would simply push the enemy to the point of defeat with a relentless assault of physical attacks, giving them no time to think, or she would be defeated in the attempt. Granted, during that assault, she was generally pretty creative in how she applied that pressure, but that was her general strategy for the most part.

    It was time to see if she could put what she learned thus far to the test.

    Dashing forward in the proper stance, she struck out quickly with a Shattering Palm but had no intent on making contact, instead applying the principle she had seen against her in sending a wave of pressure at him to try to get him off balance. Immediately following, she would dip herself and perform a Shoulder Charge to try to close the distance further and disrupt and counter or recovery from the first attack that he decided to perform, and to top it off, she would throw a Rising Knee towards his gut, chaining the attacks together not only as a show of what the skills could do, but trying to settle into what she was familiar with; apply pressure and not giving Satori time to think. If she could slow him down mentally, even slightly, an opening would appear.

    As Midori began to dash at him, releasing a blast of pressure, Satori did the natural thing: he kept his distance. While she charged to close the space between them, he kept moving backward causing the power of the palm to disperse by the time it got to him. This forced her to use the shoulder charge technique to bulldoze toward him in a burst of speed: but the downside of using that technique was, like with any technique that amplified speed if you lacked the perception to keep up with your new moment, everything blurred around you.

    A tunnel vision effect. Satori grinned as she flew toward him and sidestepped at the last minute, dodging to the side that didn't have the knee begining to rise so that she flew past him. She was getting the idea. Combination attacks using Taijutsu was an excellent method of fighting, especially with raw power, but she had to get used to using them constantly against a variety of opponents and types of combat.

    As he slid to the side he would skid along the ground and grin. Despite the failure, it was well done. She'd proven she had mastery over the techniques, now she just needed to know the proper timings to use them.

    Straightening, he would lift a hand to call a halt and glance toward Midori, then the children.

    "Can anyone tell me why, despite clearly using the techniques and having the same speed, Midori-san wasn't able to land the blow?" This was a learning excersize, for both her and the children in many ways. Slowly, one of the girls that had looked downtrodden earlier lifted her hand, eyes sparkling in amazement at the exchange.

    "Yes?"

    "I think it's because your reaction time is superior... your senses are probably, too?" Her brow furrowed, looking at his feline eyes as Satori grinned.

    "Very good. Yes, that's pretty much the only reason is a difference in our base abilities. So, what would be the immediate solution to this, hm?" He glanced over the children, but there was no response as they all looked confused. Satori smiled and looked toward Midori instead, arching a brow. If she had any ideas, then of course he'd let her speak. If not, well, this was a lesson. He'd teach.

    Missing him entirely was not something she had fully thought wouldn't happen, but, it did bring a startling realization that she couldn't use her peripheral vision until she came to a stop, skidding to a halt a short distance past him. Whirling back into the Arkhat style and bracing for the counterattack, she locked her eyes on her enemy as her vision returned to her, determined not to let that happen again. She realized the reason, and thought about it for a moment, realizing that she needed to train a lot more if she was going to have any chance at controlling herself at those speeds. She realized that for all her strength and training, she had been squandering it, and now she was going to have to play a major game of catch up; but that suited her just fine. She prepared to launch herself at him again for another round, but his extended hand stopped her in her tracks, and instead she simply walked over next to him, listening as he addressed the class.

    She listened, thinking to herself the obvious answers, and waited for someone to pipe up with it, but when no one did, suddenly the question was turned towards her by Satori, and she rattled it off instantly. "Twitch Drills, Speed Training and Reaction Lessons. Increase Coordination, Speed and my Perception." She could see it clearly, but she was trying to make up for it with sheer tenacity and ingenuity. It wasn't enough, that much was certain, but she did the best she could and no one could take that from her. Next time, she would do better, and more and more she would focus her training and catch up to him. She would give him a run for his money one of these days, she was certain of it. But more than that, she wanted to be useful to him as well.

    She had long since come to the understand that she, Midori Yamato Ryuutei, was just a piece in his game to ascend and make things better for the entire village and probably even larger than that. She couldn't even claim to be the most important piece in that plan, but she would be useful to him, of that she was certain. It was not an exaggeration that she would willingly die to ensure that he lived, as his life, in her eyes, was far more important than her own.

    Satori tilted his head slightly at the response and nodded once.

    "Partially correct. Those are all long-term solutions, but I mean right now," he smiled before his hands clapped and he turned to face the children as he tilted his head slightly to the side.

    "The solution immediately is to use a technique to compensate for the additional weakness," as he explained this he turned and shifted himself before his body relaxed, and his eyes focused on her own. This time his didn't enter the Arhat stance, but instead he kept his footing loose and relaxed, watching patiently for her to try again.

    He had created several new techniques, all Taijutsu, purely to help make up for weaknesses of the users physical ability. For practically no chakra cost learning them would allow the wielder to amplify aspects of their body at any time by altering their stance, it was an excellent strategy to learn and use. Now he'd move on from Arhat to teach her exactly that.

    Midori's eyes narrowed. He should have specified that he was looking for a short term solution if that was the answer he was looking for, and he knew it... doubtful he would admit it, or perhaps he had this thought in his mind that everyone connected the dots without information like he did. Either way, this agitated her slightly for some reason, but she relaxed quickly and dismissed it as unneeded aggravation that would only serve to cloud her judgement. He stood, relaxed, and bid her to come at him again, and she recognized that this was a transition away from the Arkhat style, and reverted to her normal stance for a moment, eyeing him for openings.

    He seemed open enough, but she knew that was a trap, and instead of testing the waters with high speed jabs, she decided to simply move in, quick but cautious. Once she had closed the distance, she kept at a decent long range and began to press hard and fast into whatever new defense he cooked up. This was where she was most capable; in your face, punching away and trying to make it to where you couldn't come up with a technique fast enough.

    As Midori stepped in, Satori sidestepped casually. His movements speed hadn't increased, it was more than that as if his body itself was reacting on its own before he was as when she moved, so did he in near-perfect tandem. It wasn't as though her attacks were missing due to him moving at unusual angles or higher speeds like before. He was perfectly mirroring her, but in reverse, to the side, as if they were dancing together and it was all a simple choreography.

    Predators Focus.

    Lifting a hand to signal the halt, Satori would smile and tucked his hands into his pockets. "This technique costs almost no chakra to maintain and is a form of Taijutsu style. It requires your body to be honed from so much training that it allows your body to seemingly move on its own. Raw reflexes and muscle memory from constant combat," as Satori explained this, he tucked his hands behind his head and smiled.

    "It will let you bypass your normal limitations in a field, though you won't be able to learn this exact version. But a lesser version would be good, and it would be an excellent base for you to build on it from there," Satori then straightened slowly and grinned.

    "I've made a Foundation Taijutsu for every form of combat to help improve ones baseline physical abilities for low chakra. I'll teach you all of them." He stated with a firm nod.

    Midori was now a combination of vastly frustrated, and eager as hell. She wanted to learn everything that was promised to her by Satori just now, and she would definitely be putting it to use if she could master them all, her eagerness to learn rearing its head as the thirst for knowledge. She had always been this way; while she had never been particularly gifted mentally, she was starting to realize that might have partially been because of her lack of Chakra Control and the balance between her normal Chakra and the Nature Chakra she passively absorbed. Part of her wanted to go ahead and tap into that as well, begin charging it, but the dragon perhaps was best left sleeping for now; her desire to fight would overwhelm her reason, and their lesson might be lost.

    Plus, that Chakra always messed with her mind,and she was already aggravated at the fact that she continued to play directly into Satori's hand. Certainly, she had no doubt that he was more powerful, faster, stronger, smarter... her superior in every conceivable way, but it didn't make any damn sense. He never made a mistake... never slipped up, and it made it extremely painful for her pride as a fighter to fall behind to such an extent. She was not a child anymore; but the sheer amount of effort she put in every single day and she never seemed to be able to catch up. So with the combination of emotions warring within her, she waited for him to explain what was next, not letting those emotions rise to the surface.

    He would use that against her too, if she allowed him to see it.

    Satori noticed the slight anger, but he put it aside because she was still eager to learn. That was what was most important for this interaction, more than anything else. If he was going to truly help her grow to the point of physical development, he had to be willing to see past her self-anger and just let it be for now. Clapping his hands together he smiled and relaxed his body.

    "The first I'll teach you is a variant on what I just performed. Infuse your chakra into your entire body, a basic concentration, nothing more. From there, relax yourself. Don't be so tense," as he explained this he showed how he had kept his body loose as well.

    "This is key to learn several other of the foundation styles as well," he added with a slight smile.

    Midori let it go mentally for now, stuffing the emotion and thoughts into a corner of her mind for the moment, and focused on listening to the instructions.  It was an odd sensation, trying to make her body completely relaxed and loose in a combat scenario, and it took a couple of tries before she really felt like she was getting somewhere, but once she had the physical aspect down, she turned her attention towards the Chakra portion.  Considering how much she had been focusing on Chakra Control in her training regimen, this shouldn't be as difficult as if it were to be tasked to her a few months ago.

    She felt the power of her own design stir, and gently flow through her body.  It was interesting, in a way, because this was very similar to how her Nature Chakra enhanced her when she used that power, but instead of that battle hungry feeling this was by far more soothing.  Her own Chakra was calm and relatively at ease as it flowed through her veins and into her limbs, giving her a very comfortable feeling.  Once that was done, she opened her eyes that she hadn't realized she had closed, and gave Satori a nod.

    Satori nodded once, then took a single step forward as she gave the silent affirmative. He could smell the chakra on her, and he smiled. In contrast to her usual rampaging nature, it was relaxed and calm. Lifting his hands up he shifted onto the offensive, throwing basic light jabs, for now, to start her off, and as he did so he instructed her.

    "Keep the chakra distribution even, it's only there to enhance your base skills. Don't think about what you're doing, just keep your body relaxed and fall back on muscle memory and instinct," he stated, though he knew it was harder to do than talk about. Using nothing but instinct was... difficult for most. Using raw muscle memory and fighting without thinking about one's actual movements?

    Even more so.

    As Satori approached, Midori took his instructions one step further and let her eyes relax.  He would notice that while they were facing his direction, they were not actually looking at him, nor at the jabs that he sent her way.  She had tried this before, but hadn't really found a way to apply it until now; not focusing on anything in particular.  You lost some detail as your focus shifted, and couldn't see things quite as clearly, but what you gained was being able to see all of it at the same time.

    The other major advantage she had is that Midori had practiced extensively in the art of relying on muscle memory, using it to help with her reaction time against opponents, but it had very little effect because she hadn't thought to add Chakra to her body like she was doing now.  These two advantages allowed her to focus almost solely on keeping the Chakra flow steady and the distribution even, regardless of what Satori sent her way; she knew that he had more speed than this, but the subtle increase in her reflexes was nice to see.

    Satori flowed with her as the jabs shot out and she continued to dodge or deflect each basic blow on her own, smiling softly at the clear ability she had. She was good at this much it would seem. Clenching his hands he released a sudden change, shifting from easily read attacks to a sudden high-kick aimed at her head before following it up with his other leg clenching. Launching him forward so his knee from that same leg was suddenly launched at her center of mass.

    They still weren't complex movements, but it was important to start slowly ramping it up. The heightened reflexes would help her tremendously, and ensure that she was able to properly react and counter him as needed. Grinning he would clench both hands as he waited for what was to come. As she gained skill, she'd be able to switch from pure defense to offense.

    Though that may take a bit of time.

    At first, it was simple... almost boringly simple, but just as that thought began to manifest in her mind, Satori changed things up and made it more complex and challenging. The kick was dodged with a simple lean, letting the foot pass through the empty air only a hair's breadth away from her nose, and as it transitioned into a knee towards her chest, she leaned further, having seen what Satori had done to her in an earlier battle and landed on her hands, flipping backwards quickly and landing a few feet away. She had seen an opening, if only for a moment; she could have extended her legs and perhaps hit his, as he was extended forwards and almost in the air to bring his knee that high.

    Next time, she would have to see if she could connect with a blow that way. Her eyes were still unfocused, her body loose, but she did shift, sliding seamlessly into her typical stance with one notable exception; there was no fist clenched this time next to her waist, but instead it too was open and relaxed. She would see if she could apply more of what she had learned as she waited for his next assault, letting her mind relax.

    Satori grinned as Midori suddenly launched herself away, mirroring his earlier movements. The children didn't miss it, and several gasped at the fact she'd mirrored his own actions so quickly. She lacked his natural flexibility, but her training had certainly made her capable of it despite that. Grinning softly to himself his hands flexed once, his leg lowering slowly as she escaped before he dashed forward once more. There was the fact he wasn't using his own techniques anymore, but that was fine.

    The goal here was to help Midori grow stronger, not the other way around. Though it wasn't as if he didn't take anything away from this as well at least.

    His right fist shot out in a jab toward her, before shifting to the side at the last minute suddenly and flying past her face as his left knee rose up as if to slam into her stomach. Marking his hand as a feint. The moment she'd begin trying to backpedal away from or block the knee, the hand that had gone past her head, however, would clench. Aiming to grab her by the hair and smash her head down into the knee instead.

    Satori was gradually stepping up the difficulty.

    Midori saw him dash towards her, and while the punch was wide, she reacted instinctively to it, blocking it and pushing it away at the wrist with her own back hand; leaving a hand anywhere near her with Satori was inviting trouble, and she hadn't really done much aside track it's movement and deflect as per normal. The knee came next, and she saw his movement clearly, and this time she decided it was time for a parry... even a counter-attack if she could. The problem with the knee is that it forced his center of gravity to be higher, and made it to where your foundation was less solid than with both feet.

    So her open palm smashing into the knee would spin him like a top, and while Midori didn't expect this to be particularly debilitating, she did hope that it would be enough to allow her own kick to connect with his ribs, but she expected to be blocked. Either way, she would push off with her grounded foot and create some distance. Considering that he was getting more elaborate with his attacks, she was not about to be caught off guard while right next to him.

    Satori grinned as she smacked his hand away and used her palm to smash into his knee--but instead of just letting himself be launched back, he stuck with her. Allowing the force of her palm to match his knee mid-air and removing his other foot from the ground so that instead of spinning, he was simply knocked back to land lightly on the earth. Then he was upon her again. Giving her no room to try and create distance as his right hand extended in a jab aimed at her stomach from below.

    Purposely timing the attack so that when she tried to block the fist, his elbow instantly gave way, bending his arm and sending his elbow snapping toward her left side instead. She was getting sharper now, starting to connect properly and defend, though he could tell she hadn't actually seen through the fient, only reacted on a case by case basis.

    That was fine. Trying to find the balance between muscle-reactions and also keeping your mind sharp was incredibly difficult, to the point he was even still getting a solid handle on it all.

    It seemed that Satori was taking a page out of her book and not giving her time to breath; she had hoped the distance would allow her to reset herself, get loose again and focus her energy to flow through her a little more smoothly. She was still getting the hang of it, naturally, and while she truly believed that she should be able to get the grasp on this like everything else she had today, she realized quickly that the Chakra Control, staying loose, not focusing on your target, and everything else was a bit overwhelming. As Satori closed on her, she saw the fist, blocked it, but what followed had been missed.

    As the elbow collided with her gut, she caved, spitting a bit as her form doubled over, having missed the blow entirely and being completely unprepared. She had been trying to do too much all at once, and this was the price she would pay for that foolishness. It hadn't been a super heavy blow, but it had hit a vulnerable spot, and as such, she backed up, taking a couple of steps and holding her stomach. When she looked at Satori again, the fury had lit in her eyes, and the blow had triggered something she had been holding back for a while now.
