NDP 2012.08 - #4: Kasumi vs Benkei

Description: Todohryuu vs. Todohryuu. Benkei's biggest humiliation yet!

Inside Southtown Village, there stands a certain dojo dedicated to discipline, duty, and honor. In these hallowed halls, the family art of the Todoh family, Todohryuu Kobojutsu, is taught to young men and women. Among these young men and women is one of the more experienced students, a sixteen year old named Benkei Bunya. Having trained since he was thirteen, Daniel is teaching him and waiting for him to come into his own before he's awarded his blackbelt. Between class for police academy and various PT drills, he's still training and fighting. Tonight, he takes on Master Todoh's star student, the very beautiful and deadly Kasumi. He's had a nervous crush on Kasumi since he first met her, being the child of his sensei and a powerful warrior in her own right. As cameras cluster around, Benkei walks out, wearing a bug-like Kamen Rider costume, the result of a bet with Rio. His face obscured by the bug mask, he drops into fighting position. He told the fans he would wear this costume, so by God, he'll wear the silly thing.

COMBATSYS: Benkei has started a fight here.

Compared to the last NDP fight Kasumi had been involved with, this is in considerably more comfortable circumstances in considerably more comfortable ground. She's dressed in her usual outfit, the way her mother expects her to and she normally doesn't bother to fight, and she's standing at her own side of the ring used for today's match.

Rathr than Benkei, she is not at all nervous seeming. Her fists punches an open palm in a traditional warrior's greeting as she makes a bow to the younger Todohryuu stylist. "Remember your lessons, Benkei." Is her only instruction before she signals the judges that she is ready for the fight to begin.

Benkei returns the bow, making sure to go an inch deeper, since she's a black belt and him a level below that degree of proficiency. Adjusting his mask and helmet, he then drops down into a defensive position, and begins to walk sideways around Kasumi, his left hand out and his right hand pulled back in striking position. This is going to be a difficult fight - he's at a disadvantage in every means possible.

Benkei           0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0           Kasumi

The bell sounds. Kasumi does not wait one moment to engage in violent assault against her pupil's pupil. While she isn't holding back, not really, she is not opening with as much force as she could have, or maybe even should have. She is trying to 'test' Benkei, both to see how well he is doing, and how well Daniel has been doing in teaching him.

The movements are nonetheless quick, without delay Kasumi reaches Benkei, and her right hand lashes out to chop Benkei's side, a strike that is at its most basic destabilizing, but which is certainly not harmful on its own behalf.

COMBATSYS: Kasumi successfully hits Benkei with Hiji Ate.

Benkei emits a muffled squeak as he's struck in the side, stumbling away from Kasumi's hand and nearly falling over. Grumbling, he pulls his helmet off, his spectacles fogged up and his hair a mess. "Okay, I am so /not/ wearing this damned helmet!" He tosses it aside, before he looks at Kasumi, smiling. "Kasumi-chan, I apologize for my language." He dashes forward, his fist swinging out at Kasumi's head with exceptional speed.

COMBATSYS: Kasumi counters Cannon Fist from Benkei with Sasshou Inshuu.

Benkei           1/-------/=======|==-----\-------\0           Kasumi

"Kasumi-Sensei." Kasumi corrects, batting aside the fist coming at her with both arms just before kicking her student in the chest, throwing him backwards. She isn't being mean, but there's the gossip press that will be feasting on Benkei's choice of honorific, and would be feasting even more if she hadn't bothered to correct him.

In all due fairness, Kasumi does not follow up on this too quickly. She allows Benkei to collect himself before the fight continues, it's fairly likely that she Benkei has already been beaten up more than a little by these two attacks, and she doesn't need to humiliate him. Not on camera anyway.

Benkei is sent flying backwards and bounces across the ground, rolling to a halt. Shaking his head as he grunts and pushes himself up, he takes a moment to catch his breath. "Kasumi-sensei, sorry. Geez, Kasumi, you've really been practicing!" He moves back in, leaping up and jamming his heel out at the side of Kasumi's leg, trying to hobble her temporarily.

COMBATSYS: Kasumi blocks Benkei's Light Kick.

Benkei           1/-------/=======|===----\-------\0           Kasumi

The kick lands, though Kasumi moves in such a way the resulting impact is minimal and easily withstood, it neither causes Kasumi to fall nor to stumble. Rather than strike or kick again, the daughter of Ryuhaku Todoh smiles briefly and makes her next move of this fight.

Both her hands move to Benkei's armpits, aiming to grip him by both so she can fling him upwards to impact the ceiling of the dojo, and if this succeeds the next move would be an attempt to grab him again and this time fling him against the walls. How well she succeeds at these attempts is yet to be seen.

COMBATSYS: Kasumi successfully hits Benkei with Brutal Throw Chain.
- Power hit! -

Benkei           2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0           Kasumi

Benkei blinks as he's hoisted off his feet, slamming into the ceiling, before being sent headfirst into a wall. He bounces off the wall and to the ground like a sack of moist potatoes, stretched out on the ground. He doesn't move as he lays there, apparently unconscious. Oops, Kasumi.

COMBATSYS: Benkei takes no action.

COMBATSYS: Benkei can no longer fight.

Kasumi           0/-------/---====|

That was rather fast and brutal, and while Kasumi did mean to be that brutal, she had expected him to make a noticable effort to defend himself. As the match has been called in her favor, she is already checking up on the student to make sure he is fine, that she didn't accidentally kill him or something horrible like that.

COMBATSYS: Kasumi has ended the fight here.
