Description: Jiro seeks to even the score against Hinako within Seijyun High's Gym. While the fight was close, the victor was made. (Winner: Hinako).
Seijyun High. Bastion of culture and decorum in a brutish city. Where young ladies can learn to become graceful and proper. And, in a few cases, how to beat people up in a dignified manner. Hinako is one of those fighting young ladies, and her goal is to show people the grace and style of the art of sumo. She's got her work cut out for her.
And today is no different, because she's got a real fight to demonstrate her skills in, and so she'll have to put on the best show possible. She's fought Jiro before, and on his home ground, and she won there, but that's no assurance that she'll win today. The crowd, though, which consists largely of Seijyun students, is fairly solidly on her side. Most of the students here take a fairly... dim... view of Gedo.
Situated in the center of the gym, Hinako works on her stretches while she waits for the fight to begin. Since she's in the gym, she's gone with her Seijyun school uniform, with a white t-shirt and a pair of navy blue bloomers. She's also got a purple headband to help keep her hair back and out of her eyes.
Oddly enough, the Stray Dog is well appreciated within Seijyun High. After his impressive display of sportsmanship against Aislinn and the fact that he has a few strong fans here, Jiro's feeling a little more confident about the upcoming fight against Hinako, especially since she did beat him.
Of course, since he has no real problems with Hinako, it shouldn't be difficult to fight her without demeaning her. So here comes Jiro in the usual garb: grey sleeveless shirt, black pants, blue tennis shoes, and the leather straps along his arms as gloves with the metal knucklepoint.
He appoaches the middle of the gym, looking over towards Hinako with a wave, "Hey, ready to get the show on the road?" The fans in the gym are cheering for the upcoming match.
Hinako hops up from her stretching position, then gives Jiro a quick bow. Straightening back up, she clenches her hands into fists, then uses each fist to slam the upper arm on the opposite side. "Hyah! I'm ready whenever you are!" The fans continue to cheer as the cameras move into position, and the crew makes the last few preparations for the fight.
Hinako flexes her fingers a few times, checking the tape wrapped around her hands, then nods to herself and leans forward into her sumo posture. Now it's just a matter of waiting for the call that officially starts the fight.

Jiro 0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0 Hinako
The Stray Dog watches Hinako as she straightens back up to get to her fighting stance. In turn, the Stray Dog tightens his fists and steps forward with his left leg, bending his knees slightly as his hands lift up in a guarding position. Now that Jiro is quite ready for his fight, he is waiting for the signal to come out.
Once the match is able to begin, Jiro starts sprinting towards Hinako, aiming to draw a right hand to strike her gut, then he leans forward to draw his right leg out for a spinning hook kick aiming for the side of her head.

Hinako holds her hands up in front of her, but it looks like she misses in an attempt to block Jiro's punch to her stomach. She winces in pain, but as his foot comes swinging up toward her head, she makes her move. The kick slams into her, but at the same moment she's reaching up in an attempt to grab Jiro by the leg.
If she should manage to snare her opponent's leg, Hinako drags down, attempting to yank Jiro off his other foot, flip him over, and slam him face first into the gymnasium floor.

Once the foot makes its motion towards Hinako and she captures it, the Stray Dog grunts before he is yanked off of the other foot, flipped over, and falling towards his face on the floor.
However, the youth uses both of his hands to fall in front of him as he's descending to help cushion himself from the face landing. Insead, the Stray Dog immediately pushes himself up with a spin, drawing his right hand out before it illuminates with a flaming white chi. The white blade chi erupts with power through its burning rage.
"SHINING FANG!" He is dashing to zip past the sumo wrestler, aiming to slice her across the side with the weapon.

Hinako quickly steps back as Jiro catches himself, attempting to prepare herself for his counter attack. When she sees the energy flaring around his hand, she knows it's going to be bad. Taking a deep breath and planting her feet, she attempts to catch Jiro's arm as he rushes in, trying to keep him from getting a clean hit with the energy blade. He manages to evade her, however, and the blade slices through her shirt and flesh, a red stain quickly spreading over the ripped cloth as Hinako holds back a cry of pain.
She doesn't let it slow her down, though. Spinning around to follow Jiro, Hinako lashes out at the Stray Dog's face with an open palmed strike, attempting to hit him right between the eyes. She then quickly snakes her hand to the side, trying to hook the side of Jiro's head and hurl him down to the floor.

Jiro 0/-------/---====|====---\-------\0 Hinako
This is not a good start for the Stray Dog. Once Hinako follows after him and she lashes out towards his face with the opened palm, Jiro is driving his right foot outward to smack against her stomach to halt her. At the same time, a lick of flames is slowly igniting along the leg. But it is soon brought to an end when she striks him off balance, then she hooks the side of his head and hurls him towards the floor.
"UGNK!" He grunts, grumbling under his breath as he slowly starts to get up.
Jiro wants to get back up? Well then, Hinako would be happy to oblige! It's not like she holds a grudge for getting cut up, although she isn't very fond of getting into fights where people get burned and cut, as opposed to just getting beaten up. But she's not going to go easy on anybody. That's not the sumo way!
Hinako reaches down as Jiro is climbing up, attempting to hook her hands underneath his shoulders. If she can grab him, she makes use of that hold to yank him up right off the ground, and send him sailing up into the air and over her shoulders.

Jiro 0/-------/-======|======-\-------\0 Hinako
In the way that Jiro wanted to get up was not the way that Hinako had in mind. While he is pulling himself to his feet with narrowed eyes. Because the moment that Hinako comes forth again, the Stray Dog tightens his stance with his fist winded back, "SEI!" He aims to draw the fist forward, but he doesn't get the chance to get to the last step as her hand hooks underneath his shoulders. "DO--UGH!" His body is lifted high into the sky, then he crashes straight on his back with a groan.
"This is not a good day for me."
He turns over once more, trying to pull himself onto his feet. "Damnit..."
"Hey, everybody has bad days... But you haven't been beaten yet! It's never over until it's over!" Hinako looks up toward the sky (or the roof, anyway), eyes sparkling and arms tensed in a enthusiastic pose. "It's the glory of the fight! It's wonderful, inspiring, invigorating! Am I right!?" Judging by the roar from the audience, the answer would be 'yes'.
"So let's go, Jiro! Hyah!" By now the Stray Dog has almost certainly had time to get to his feet, so Hinako rushes at him, lashing out with a quick series of palm strikes, aimed to stagger him and keep him from being able to put together a guard.

Jiro 1/-------/=======|======-\-------\0 Hinako
The Stray Dog smirks towards Hinako's words, then he nods once more. "Right." The young man straightens himself out, then he chuckles at her enthusiasm. The crowd's reaction earns a smirk, then he shuts his eyes, "Very well." The Stray Dog looks at Hinako, stepping into his stance once more; both hands out in a guarding position, then he keeps his stance moving.
The moment she lunges forward with the palm strikes, Jiro's stepping into it, strucked in the face once. How annoying. But, it doesn't stop Jiro, oddly enough. Once he can, he pivots his feet over and spins around Hinako's direction, aiming to drive his elbow towards her side in a hard manner.

Hinako quickly brings an arm down as Jiro drives his elbow in, catching the blow on her forearm before it can be driven into her side. She quickly twists herself around so that she's facing Jiro again, reaching out for the Stray Dog once again. Nothing fancy this time; she simply attempts to shove him while he's recovering from his strike, hopefully knocking him back down to the floor. Gotta keep him on his toes. Hinako can throw out some much, much heavier blows than this, but she doesn't want to strike too early.

Jiro 1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\1 Hinako
Once Hinako brings an arm down towards him, he grunts when she catches he blow, then he starts to drive himself forward once more when she reaches out to shove him towards the floor. He is rolling on the ground from the shove, then he presses his foot towards the ground to press himself towards Hinako. Once he's close enough, he draws his hand up in the air. Chi flowing through his body, the young man extends his right hand up and he gathers forth his chi. Flowing all along his body, a white sphere appears at the palm as a spiral of white tendrils move along the body.
The smile curls on his lips, shutting his eyes as he concentrates on the chi flowing in him. "...Real...ultimate power..." He shuts is eyes, feeling the fury surge through his body. "It's been fun...." He grins, "But as you said... It's not over yet!" He tightens his fist, a circle of light comes forth from the spiralling chi, "REBEL!".... Three feet radius, all of them pinpointing of where Hinako needs to get -away- from.
"SPIKE!" Then, he slams his fist to the ground, unleashing a multitude of geysers blasting from the ground rapidly, aiming to send Hinako flying.

Hinako goes flying alright... But she starts before Jiro is even finished with his attack. As the blasts of chi start moving toward her, Hinako leaps right toward them, arms out as she intends to charge right through them and slam into Jiro. She actually makes it most of the way through before her momentum is overcome... And then she goes sailing backwards, clothes smoking slightly as she hits the gym floor, bounces a few times, then skids to a stop on her back. "...ow..."
"Yeah... something like that."
After the blast of the chi, Jiro lifts his hand up and he grins, starting to move around and captialize on the fact that Hinako is down. However, the rules of the noble battle is calling him. But at the same time, you can't let the opponent get a break. So, the Stray Dog aims to help Hinako up, but not in the way that she'd want it.
...While aiming to help her up, Jiro spins about to lash his right leg towards her gut to send her back.

Hinako is just starting to get up when Jiro leaps in and slams a kick into her stomach. She doesn't get knocked back, but she does double over, apparently from the pain. Only apparently, however, because Hinako's got a little plan. Because as soon as Jiro's foot is withdrawn, she makes her move. Using her crouched position to mask the tensing of her legs, she suddenly lunges at Jiro, attempting to drive herself into him with a shoulder charge.

After she slams her small frame into Jiro's body, Hinako explodes into a flurry of palm strikes. Her arms blur as she throws blow after blow all across Jiro's body, slowly but surely driving him back. After one last quick blow to the face, she throws out both palms together in a powerful blow to the stomach. But she's not done there!
Wrapping her arms around Jiro, Hinako squeezes him with enough force that someone who hasn't trained as a fighter might be worried about their spine snapping. "Hyaaaah!" And with that cry, Hinako hurls Jiro up into the air, sending him flying up most of the way to the ceiling of the gym.
After the foot striking her quite roughly, the youth's body tenss, preparing for another strike. When she launches at him in a surprising manner, however, Jiro lunges forward to grab her hand, but he is caught by the shoulder rush instead. Grunting from the impact, he coughs up some blood, then he is given multiple strikes to the face and body, then he's squeezedand he is tossed straight toards the air.
...He lands on the ceiling, then he bounces off to crash land to the ground with a painful *CRUNCH!* "Eghnn...." He groans and falls over.
Hinako pauses for a moment, hands on her knees as she watches Jiro come tumbling down from the ceiling. When it becomes apparent that Jiro isn't about to get back up, she straigtens up, running her hand across her forehead to wipe away some sweat that wasn't caught by her headband. "Phew... That was a close one! Good match, Jiro!"
Walking over, she reaches down to help the Stray Dog get back up. Assuming he's still concious, anyway. Meanwhile, the crowd is expressing their enthusiasm for the fight by cheering. And loudly. Everybody loves to see a fight that ends in a close finish.

Slowly, Jiro is starting to emerge onto his feet thanks to the assistance of Hinako. He beams a smile at her, smirking once more as he gives her a thumbs up. "Heh, thanks.." He muses for a moment, then he grins at the crowd, "We should get ice cream some time." He muses. May as well take Alma's advice, after all.
He stretches, waving at the crowd, even in his beaten state with a grin.
