Description: It's a battle between two women who's names start with the letter J. Watch Jira send Julia through a table, and watch Julia, in a rare instance, demand a rematch! (WINNER: Jira)

Jira Kasagi was flown out to the stadium courtesy of the organizers a couple days prior to things starting for her complimentary training and preparation for the ring. She didn't bother watching the event the day earlier, too busy mentally drilling herself and getting prepared for today's match of hers. All she knew was that there were bears on the roof and she was going against another woman. Jira's outfit was altered from normal for the competition. Her boots were to be left behind and her shirt and sweater were exchanged for a bikini top that kept her decent and unlikely to suffer malfunction.

Then it was time, with the announcers doing their introduction to the fight. Jira was put into her outfit and set up near her entryway for her name to be called. And on cue, with her name on the speakers, "JIRA -JIJI- KASAGIIIIIII" echoing out she bounds in with quick strides to the ring. She jumps to the edge and rolls over the upper rope onto the mat, giving waves and a sweeping look at all the people there.

COMBATSYS: [Linkin Park - Castle of Glass] Ambitious, but broken. That's the tale that this rushing and powerful song tells. "Take me down to the river bend. / Take me down to the fighting end. / Wash the poison from off my skin. / Show me how to be whole again." JIRA is ready to SLAM!

Julia was also flown here via the organizers, but unlike Jira, she's not too thrilled about this whole thing. She's switched out her usual attire for a simple t-shirt, leggings, and boots combo, while leaving her Native American headdress on. Those bears that are on the roof seem a bit out of place, and Julia, being a believer in the ways of respecting nature and things like that, is not happy about that one bit. "How did I ever get myself into this?" She thinks to herself as she kneels down and begins to pray to the spirits for luck, as well as to protect those poor bears against what might be happening.

When it's time for Julia to make her appearance, the announcer calls her out as, "THE NATURE GIRL, JULIA CHANG!" There might be cheers from the crowd, but Julia can only scowl at that. Between the fact she's she's feeling like she's out of uniform in a sense, and the fact that there are bears being used for entertainment and fighting when they should be left to nature, she's not happy to be here. She simply walks to the ring, not stopping to shake hands or anything like that, and then steps up onto the ring edge, slipping through the ropes and then getting into her fighting stance. She looks to Jira with a look that seems neutral, but there's a hint of anger on her face.

COMBATSYS: [Eyes Set to Kill - Masks] "I love the way they tell us, / 'This is who you should be..' / We put our faces on.. just like a MASK.." A dangerous song for a dangerous person. JULIA CHANG is ready to SLAM!

Jira eyes Julia and offers a polite smile and a bow. Stepping to the center of the mat and remaining mostly quiet. The rules were already discussed in training, and Jira wasn't really going to forget them.. most of them.. the Referee stands in the middle and does his talk. But Jira's busy fielding adrenaline and coaching from her guest, and a growing sense of numbness in her chest. "I'll let you go first." she says, audible enough to be heard by all, thanks to the nearby mic. Her eyes flash a sympathetic glance at the other before her face shifts back to polite expression.

"It's up to you what you want to do," Julia replies. "But I will tell you now that this is totally unnatural, what they are doing with these bears. And this is supposed to be fake! Why are they having us do this?" Realizing she's starting to babble, Julia shuts up for the time being. She returns the bow, though it seems more of a Native American style than traditional bow.

When the bell finally rings, Julia mutters, "Spirits, give me strength!" Before she looks at Jira and sizes her up. She remembers a few wrestling style techniques that her mother taught her, and one of them is the classic fisherman's suplex. Julia steps towards Jira and attempts to wrap her arms around her opponent, administering the classic backbending technique.

Julia            0/-------/-------|=------\-------\0             Jira

Jira nods in agreement to the bear statement, but it's slight and meant not to be too discernable at a distance. When Julia closes in, Jira stands her ground and waits for the next move. She's grabbed in a hold and flipped over Julia, but lands on her own terms. Hitting the ground on her forearms and rolling to her feet, then about facing and rushing to Julia, reaching to grab the other woman's left arm and swing her in a rapid circle on the mat and launch her hurtling to the western ropes!

COMBATSYS: Jira successfully hits Julia with Irish Whip.

Julia            0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0             Jira

Julia tries to avoid being grabbed by the arm, since she knows being thrown in that manner hurts, and it's quite uncontrollable too. Unfortunately, Jira is a bit faster here and she finds herself getting thrown into the ropes. She runs at the ropes, turning quickly to avoid falling over then, and then finds herself running back at Jira.

"Maybe I can try something," Julia thinks to herself as she heads back at Jira and attempts to raise her arm. Delivering a lariat like this can be risky since you never know what your opponent has in store, but that's just the risk you have to take in the ring.

COMBATSYS: Jira counters Medium Lariat from Julia with Equalizer.

Julia            0/-------/---====|==-----\-------\0             Jira

Jira's eyes shimmer for a moment and her limbs begin to glow a bright, shining white colour once Julia was launched. By the time her foe was on the rebound she offers a smirk. "Let's get this started!" she calls out in a mysteriously different voice. Her own words mirrored by another, masculine tone at the same time in unison. When Julia gets the hold on Jira, Jira plants her facing hand at the center to Julia's chest, sending a rush of psionic energy into her foe's core and shoving her hard enough to send her flying back onto the mat.

Julia takes the hit to the chest hard and goes down to the mat. Now she knows what it feels like to be knocked down hard onto the mat when you're a pro wrestler. Except it's not supposed to hurt so much when things like this happen. Gasping for air, Julia rolls over onto her side, then onto her stomach, before standing up slowly, still gasping for air as she does so. She takes one last deep breath before looking to her opponent.

Then she notices that bears are coming down from up above, and almost immediately she can only stare in awe and disbelief. "How can they do such a thing?!" Julia wonders aloud. She tries not to get in their way as they start coming down, as she knows that bears are generally aggressive towards humans, instead attempting to focus on Jira instead. She says nothing, instead attempting to lunge forward with a swift palm strike.

COMBATSYS: Jira blocks Julia's Palm Explosion.

Julia            0/-------/---====|====---\-------\0             Jira

Jira is too busy keeping her eyes on the fight, enough to not notice the potentally periled ursines raining down, and enough to note Julia's attack in time to intercept it with her left forearm. After taking the blow she leans in to grab Julia by the right thigh and left shoulder, lifting her up in a quick half turn and depositing her, heavily, onto the mat. "Distracted?"

COMBATSYS: Julia interrupts Audacious Slam from Jira with Light Chop.

"Those bears belong in nature," Julia replies as she watches Jira grab a hold of her arm. "They do not belong here being used as fighting animals!" Julia scowls as she continues to watch the bears coming, then turns back to Jira, raising her free arm to chop at her and break free. Unfortunately, Jira's already gotten Julia in a bit of an arm lock when she breaks free, so she's shaking her arm out a little as she recovers. "I can't believe what has happened here. Please, spirits, guide me!"

Jira nods. "Let's keep the attention here, once this is settled then we can worry about these wayward ursines." she states, fielding an unguarded chop and giving a small wince. But someone from the crowd runs up to the edge of the ring and starts screaming obscenities and for big-tits to shut up 'miss headband' before chucking a door-size table over the ropes before security drags them off. Luckily, Jira's there to grab it, covering it in shining light from her arms and moving to slam it down over Julia's head!

COMBATSYS: Jira successfully hits Julia with Illegal Weapon.

Julia            1/----===/=======|=====--\-------\0             Jira

Those tables are supposed to be props that don't actually hurt, but Julia finds herself getting crushed by one, and it leaves her on the mat bloodied and bruised. And that isn't fake blood either. That's real blood, thanks to Jira's energy and use of an illegal weapon. Of course, the referee didn't notice it, or he just didn't care. Julia meanwhile is seeing stars for a moment as she struggles to get back up. As she regains her composure slightly, Julia finds the spirits are going within her body, giving the ability to go after Jira again.

"If you want to fight like a true wrestler," Julia says as she approaches Jira, "Then I will oblige you!" Julia attempts to grab Jira and put her on the nearest turnbuckle. Then, she plans to grab her and suplex her onto the mat from the turnbuckle!

COMBATSYS: Jira counters Grand Superplex from Julia with Flashpunch.

Julia            0/-------/----===|=====--\-------\0             Jira

Jira gives a mighty showy flex to the crowd as the energy-charged table snaps in half with a brilliant flash of glistening light that crackles in the air. Jira expresses concern for her opponent, making -sure- Julia can see it. But the facade is back on when Julia approaches and makes the speech- but Jira's hand glows a luminous white and her fist rockets for Julia's face with oppressive speed and force to send the other fighter back far enough to stop her attack. "Too slow!" she shouts at Julia. "Big hits mean nothing if you can't set them up properly!" the coaches during demonstration day said that many, many times. Props to them.

Julia is sent staggering into the ropes, dazed and highly out of it. In fact, it looks like she could drop to the mat at any moment. Yet, she still somehow rebounds towards Jira, although it's more likely the ropes sent her forward instead of her running at Jira. Very weakly, she attempts to deliver a kick to Jira's stomach before she falls down for the count.

COMBATSYS: Jira endures Julia's Short Kick.

Julia            0/-------/----===|=======\-------\0             Jira

Despite having almost been out of stamina, Julia still manages to somehow remain going. She lands on her stomach, but somehow manages to feel the spirits surging within her as she manages to get back up very slowly, gasping for air as she does so. "Thank you, spirits. I may not win this, but at least you kept me going."

Jira Kasagi nods at Julia, smirking at the coming approach. Jira shifts to the side and lowers some, so the kick hits her on her ribs and she can spring her legs up for an impressive twirl in the air to speed up her flat-handed chop to the nape of Julia's neck. "Take a nap, you look like a wreck." she states plainly.

COMBATSYS: Julia fails to interrupt Light Chop from Jira with Light Chop.

COMBATSYS: Julia can no longer fight.

Julia attempts to strike back at Jira, but the attack fails. She is stricken and knocked to the mat. And this time she does not get back up at all. Her last words are, "I'll have a rematch... wait and see..." Then she goes out like a light. It's obvious Jira has won this match. But when the next match happens, will Jira be so lucky?

The announcers wait on the edge of their seats as the count starts, and at the end Julia is not up and triggers them hitting the bell and calling out, "Aaaaaaand by knockout, JIRA WINS!" and the ref lifts up Jira's hand, accompanied by a mixed crowd of cheers and jeers before she has Julia properly taken by paramedics and exits the ring herself, avoiding the bears and waving to the crowd on her exit.

COMBATSYS: Jira has ended the fight here.
