Neo League 501 - #517: Mizuki vs Katelynn

Description: A close fight between Kamigawa Mizuki and Katelynn Molina comes down to the wire, though the karateka wins in the end... (Winner: Katelynn)

Mizuki didn't get in on the Jinchuu action--and, given the events going around the ship, it's probably for the best. Despite her recent beating at the hands of one Kimi Kurogami... or maybe because of that beating... Mizuki's decided to seek out more fights, to try and gain more experience in the world of fighting. She's had several fights, of course, but practical experience is always appreciated and wanted.

The League officials told her to show up at the Harbor, and it's there that she disembarks from her cab, dusting herself off as she walks towards the pier where the officials have marked out the fighting arena. Katelynn Molina... she's fought the girl before, but it's been a while. And Mizuki never, ever considers anyone a 'sure' fight...

Yes, Katelynn remembers Mizuki well. And indeed it's been awhile since they last fought one another. But now that time has passed, odds are both of them have had the time to polish up their skills, and returning today should be a rather interesting experience for the both of them, to see how their fighting skills have changed as well as what kind of challenge each will provide for the other fighter.

Katelynn apparently has been here for awhile, and was off in a private location changing into her fighting attire. She walks into the area where the fighting arena is marked and proceeds to warm up a little, doing some stretching as well as shadow sparring, loosening herself up and preparing for her match.

Mizuki nods to Katelynn, with a faint smile, as she walks to her starting point. She's nervous, as always--but she does her best to banish these qualms, before the fight. In something slightly different from her usual routine, she does some stretching, twisting left and right to loosen her muscles, before drawing her baton, flipping the two-foot length of weapon in her right hand a couple of times before slipping the weapon's retaining loop over her right wrist.

Just as she's situated, the fight is called, and Mizuki chooses to open the fight with her traditional opening tactic--she prepares herself, calling up her chi, a lashing circle of blue-white energy rising up in a circle around her feet, to her knees, licking and squirming like the sun's corona.

When the fight starts, Katelynn is swift to get into her fighting stance and advance slowly on her opponent. But then she sees that Mizuki is taking a moment to focus on her mental energies, and that's when Katelynn pauses for a second, carefully watching the girl. It's not that she wants to refrain from taking an unfair strike, it's that she doesn't want to give her opponent the possibility of catching her off-guard.

Yeah it sounds strange, but in the fighting world, anything and everything goes, and you can't assume anything about anyone, no matter how tough you are or how many fights you've had. You have to keep on your toes and be prepared for anything. Hence the reason Katelynn retains her fighting stance and carefully watches Mizuki.

That's interesting. But Mizuki just smiles, as the power fades--the redhead having gathered as much as she can, at this point in time. Still... it's important to remember that only a few moments have passed. Moments in which Mizuki opens her eyes and meets Katelynn's gaze... and while the miko's blue eyes are still kind, there's an intensity to them that isn't usually there...

Still, she doesn't move, except to start walking to her right slowly, circling around Katelynn while she watches the Shotokan Karateka for whatever her first move may be...

Mizuki           0/-------/---====|-------\-------\0         Katelynn

Seems Mizuki's copying Katelynn's idea of taking a moment to size up the situation. Of course if this keeps going back and forth, nothing will happen and it will just turn into a simple staring contest. That's not what the people are here to see. They're here to see some action, and that's what they're going to get. As soon as Katelynn notices that Mizuki's circling her without intending on attacking, that's when she makes her first move.

She is quick to spin towards Mizuki and bring left foot up swiftly, aiming it directly at the girl's stomach.

Mizuki           0/-------/--=====|-------\-------\0         Katelynn

So, Katelynn -will- take the first attack... well, that's alright. Mizuki merely nods to herself as she sees Katelynn's leg coming up for her stomach. Stopping her movement, she sets her feet and flips her baton to a reverse grip, using the combination of baton and forearm to deflect the impact of the kick, sending it off-course after impact.

Immediately thereafter she moves to her right, as she sends her baton slashing upwards, trying to tag Katelynn's thigh before the shotokan can retract it--a simple attack, but so was Katelynn's. Simple doesn't mean bad--just basic.

Mizuki           0/-------/--=====|-------\-------\0         Katelynn

Just as the baton comes towards Katelynn's thigh, she lowers her hand to deflect the baton strike away with her hand. The pain is noticeable, but could've been a lot worse had she actually been hit in her thigh. As it is, the strike was knocked away and Katelynn's on the offensive once again as she returns to her fighting stance, none the worse for the wear.

Once she's fully back in her stance, she wastes no time in preparing her next attack, this time a rather strong punch aimed right at the girl's jaw that is thrust in her direction with Katelynn yelling out 'KIAI!'

Impressive! But Mizuki is no longer scared by such tactics. Rather than attempt to avoid the attack, she sets herself once again, baton whipped down low to the ground. So when Katelynn's fist is coming in, Mizuki's preparing her chi, a bright glow flaring along the ground... and then, just as the punch makes contact, Mizuki whips the baton up, icy-white cold chi flaring into a knee-high wave right on Katelynn.

The punch strikes, but Mizuki's already turning away, lessening the damage, as she wheels the baton downwards, completing her attack, sending a waist-high wave of chi straight into Katelynn's body.

The miko cries out, "Koori no... HEBI!!" despite the punch to her jaw--a punch she most assuredly felt.

The chi hit Katelynn... hard. She's sent staggering backwards and almost toppling over some crates nearby. A harbor worker nearby gives her a nasty look, but when Katelynn raises her fist to him, he backs away nervously, gritting his teeth. Without giving the worker a second thought, Katelynn turns to face Mizuki again, nodding a little in spite of the wound on her face.

"Not bad, it looks like you've truly improved since our last match," Katelynn says, before bringing her right fist back and focusing her energy into it, and then thrusting the chi from her fist in the form of a bluish sphere.

Mizuki smiles, cautiously. "Maybe," she says. She isn't too sure, some recent defeats high in her mind... but she isn't going to woolgather here and now. Regaining her balance after that punch, she's more than ready to make a quick move to her left, her footsteps tracing an arcing path as she avoids the blue ball of energy.

She thinks about the best way to attack, as her feet carry her around the projectile of energy, and before she knows it she's coming in 'charging', but not with her baton raised--instead she's trying to get closer, reaching out for Katelynn's leading arm and attempting to use it to grab and pull the girl off-balance and onto the ground.

COMBATSYS: Katelynn counters Quick Throw from Mizuki with Palm Blaster.

Mizuki           1/-------/=======|==-----\-------\0         Katelynn

As Mizuki comes towards Katelynn, attempting to grab her arm, the Shotokan mistress smirks a little as she's got a little surprise prepared for her opponent. Just as Mizuki is about to grab Katelynn's arm, she crouches down and immediately sends forth a palm strike at Mizuki's stomach. Except the strike is powered with chi, meaning that it's more powerful than a standard palm strike. Hence the reason it's called the Palm Blaster!

Oof! Mizuki stumbles back, the energy searing through her, and the palmstrike doesn't help any either. But she's not giving up just yet--in fact, she's just getting started! But she does take a moment to rub her stomach. That -did- kind of hurt a bit. Still... she shakes off the damage as best as she can, stopping her stumbling and setting herself. Once again, she starts circling again, not wanting to remain truly still even if she isn't on the offensive...

Watching, and waiting, and doing her best to be calm and patient and not go on tilt. Emotions have their place but so does being calculating.

COMBATSYS: Mizuki focuses on her next action.

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Mizuki           1/-------/=======|==-----\-------\0         Katelynn

While Mizuki takes a moment to plan her next strategy, Katelynn feels that there's no time to waste in a situation like this. A planned opponent is deadlier than a regular one. And Katelynn can't let Mizuki get an upper hand on her if she's going to succeed in this match. So let's see if Mizuki can protect herself against the jab that's coming right at the girl's stomach?

[           \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Mizuki           1/------=/=======|==-----\-------\0         Katelynn

Sure she can. Mizuki once again deflects Katelynn's blow towards her stomach, resulting in a glancing blow rather than a full-on attack--and putting her in position again to respond. She blocked with her right arm, so it's her left leg that comes up and out, seeking to plant the knee into Katelynn's stomach--and just after, she seeks to snap her left leg outwards, extending the knee into a full-on roundhouse kick--though, without the proper room to really capitalize ont he motion...

It -is- rather karate-like, all told, which might give a hint as to some of the origin of Mizuki's martial art.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////          ]
Mizuki           1/------=/=======|===----\-------\0         Katelynn

Yeah, Katelynn can sense the origins of the art that Mizuki is using. A longtime practitioner of Shotokan Karate, Katelynn knows the style all too well. It may not be pure Karate, but it does have its roots. Which is why Katelynn finds it rather easy to defend against as the kick comes at her. She is barely fazed by it, and the pain doesn't bother her too much either.

For now, Katelynn takes a moment to step back and focus on her mental energy, like Mizuki was doing earlier. It seems they both share a similar style of fighting strategy, it's just a matter of knowing when to properly use it.

COMBATSYS: Katelynn gathers her will.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Mizuki           1/------=/=======|=======\-------\0         Katelynn

Perhaps they do. Mizuki considers, for a moment... then lunges forward, once again holding her baton like a dagger. Her step is long and low, and as she comes out of it she twists her body to the, using the spin to help power out a horizontal baton slash, and, with the excess kinetic energy, powers herself through another spinning slash. It's a risky tactic, but she can't just stand around while Katelynn powers up--even if the girl was kind enough to do so for her initially.

Mizuki           1/------=/=======|=======\=------\1         Katelynn

Seeing the attack coming right at her, Katelynn braces herself to pretty much absorb the strike in a manner so that while she does take a bit more damage than normal, she compensates for it by causing the attack to throw Mizuki off balance a little, leaving her open for a counterattack from Katelynn. And that's exactly what Katelynn has planned for Mizuki.

As soon as Katelynn's finished deflecting the attack away, she throws a right forward kick while thrusting off with her left foot, flying directly at Mizuki with a rather fast kick that could easily strike her in the chest if she doesn't look out!

Mizuki           1/---====/=======|=======\==-----\1         Katelynn

The kick doesn't just hit--it sends her sprawling. But Mizuki doesn't despair--she oofs, crying out involuntarily as she's kicked, but pops up after her tumble, spending only a moment to get back to her feet. But this time, she doesn't charge in--instead, she concentrates. Chi energy swirls around her, gathering up above her head in a diaphonous cloud... a cloud that breaks after a moment.

Blue-green energy rains down over her, pattering down and, where it hits, flaring into blue-green ripples of healing power, Mizuki simply taking the moment to enact some healing.

It seems that Mizuki got hit rather hard, and now she's attempting to take the time to patch herself up. Unfortunately, Katelynn doesn't have that liberty in terms of her specialties, but that's still not a bad idea. At least catching her breath.

She steps away from her opponent and takes a moment to take a few deep breaths, using a little chi to take care of her feeling of dehydration, knowing that after the match she'll be able to enjoy a cool drink.

COMBATSYS: Katelynn gains composure.

Again... Katelynn doesn't attempt to take Mizuki down. It's kind of odd. But Mizuki won't complain. The healing rain does a great deal for her... and then she's nodding to herself. Well, if that's how Katelynn wants to play... then that's alright with her. Mizuki is willing to let her have her rest, as she goes about building power again, letting the energy refresh her further. Once again that silver-blue energy licks up in a circle around Mizuki, her stance dropping slightly, her hands clasped under her chin.

COMBATSYS: Mizuki gathers her will.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Mizuki           2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=======\=------\1         Katelynn

It seems that Mizuki's going on the meditative stance again, but Katelynn's not going to stand around waiting for her to clear her mind. Katelynn's going to use this time to make her presence known once again. Which is why she goes down into a crouch and brings her foot around towards Mizuki's feet in hopes of tripping her up. But just before the foot connects, Katelynn pauses and then suddenly pivots on the extended foot, bringing her other leg around to deliver the actual sweep!

COMBATSYS: Mizuki endures Katelynn's Feint Sweep.

Mizuki           2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=======\=------\1         Katelynn

Hmm. Mizuki watches Katelynn coming in, and even if that first attack was a feint... she's ready for the second. Or is she? She's certainly swept, her legs taken out from underneath her... but as she is going down, she's curling up and rolling forward, rather than just going flat on her back.

And as she rises, she acts--bringing her baton to bear in a forward grip, the weapon glowing with blue energy as she repeatedly stabs it forward for Katelynn's body, the rapid strikes building into a frenzy that suddenly is curtailed as Mizuki steps forward and brings the weapon around in a power uppercut...

Mizuki           0/-------/---====|=======\====---\1         Katelynn

Even with something as powerful as Mizuki's attack, Katelynn is still able to raise her guard and absorb the attack while taking minimal damage to herself. It's a bit difficult, since she's sent backwards a little, but eventually recovers before she's forced to stagger or lose her balance. Which is a good thing, too, since Katelynn's got her own style of returning the favor in mind.

Katelynn closes her eyes and begins to breathe deep, focusing intently on something within her. An aura of chi can be seen forming around her, getting brighter and brighter with every breath, untill she finally opens her eyes, which are glowing with chi as well. A split second later, she rushes towards Mizuki, attempting to deliver a swift flurry of carefully choreographed punches and kicks which have been put into a special kata that Katelynn has created for a moment like this.

COMBATSYS: Katelynn successfully hits Mizuki with Ultimate Kata.

Mizuki           1/-------/=======|-------\-------\0         Katelynn

Once again, Mizuki is just crushed by a powerful series of blows. It looks like, for a moment, that she's done for, for good--the final blow knocks her down and sends her tumbling again. But... somehow, she rises, looking... well... looking pretty well beaten.

But if she is beaten in body, she's not beaten in spirit--and despite the pain, making it hard to focus, she instead focuses her energies once more. Closing her eyes, she finds, briefly, her inner peace, and her power gathers over her again, this time breaking into a literal waterfall that pours down...

Katelynn wastes no time in recovering from the kata to prepare herself for her next attack. Unfortunately, while Mizuki is feeling physically drained, Katelynn is feeling a bit on the mentally drained side. She steps back and begins to focus once again, this time on bringing her mental energies back up to a more suitable level.

COMBATSYS: Katelynn gathers her will.

That, at least, buys Mizuki some significant time. The energy crashes down and its revitalizing powers cannot be denied; Mizuki straightens, and she just looks a whole lot better. She regards Katelynn for a moment, then lunges forward, going into battle one more time...

Again, she makes a dual strike with her baton, holding it in reverse. Her lunge is a high one this time, the baton sweeping out across where Katelynn's head is, and then, at the end of the arc, she reverses her grip and whips the weapon back across the same area.

Katelynn snaps out of her focus briefly long enough to see the attack coming at her, and utilizes her Palm Blaster once again. Unfortunately, becaus she snapped out of her state too soon, most of her mental energy was drained, and it barely had any effect.

Barely any effect? Mizuki would dispute that. This time, however, she stumbles back... and comes right back to the attack. Counters be damned; Mizuki is getting a little angry, but she's trying to focus her anger rather than let it rule her. Stepping forward, she pivots and fires a right side-kick for Katelynn's stomach, seeking to plant her maryjaned foot into the karateka's gut.

Katelynn's effort to absorb the blow to put herself into a better position to counter backfires, and she ends up getting hit a tad bit hard. It's not as painful as she thought it would be, but it still hurts nonetheless. Hence the reason Katelynn's done using fancy techniques and is just going straight to the point. As in, grabbing Mizuki by the shoulders and flinging her across the pier!

Not today! Mizuki ducks back, moving smoothly with Katelynn's attempt, staying just out of range. She smiles a little; she's done well, even with being struck by her opponent's most powerful attack. She can't ask for much more. Other than the win, of course. But with Katelynn on her like white on rice, Mizuki ducks to her left and tumbles forward, evading Katelynn and creating some space... but even that might be an illusion as she once again turns, moving towards Katelynn again, jabbing her baton out for the back of the girl's head.

In spite of being very tired, Katelynn still manages to raise her guard and absorb the incoming attack coming right at her. But regardless, it looks like Mizuki might be looking at a victory again. But that doesn't mean Katelynn won't go down without a fight. For now anyway, Katelynn's not letting that fighting spirit out of her system as she steps back to rest.

If, again, that's how Katelynn wants to play it... Mizuki watches her opponent back off. She can't continue to do that--that's a sure way to lose--so Mizuki will let her take that moment. But Mizuki, herself, is also taking that moment... to refocus, to clear her head, to let her emotions settle. It's been a tough fight, but Mizuki feels she's acquitted herself well...

Enough downtime, Katelynn can't spare anymore time for waiting around to rest. It's time to finish this once and for all, even if it means she may not win. It's just one of those risks you take in the fighting arena. But nevertheless, here comes another blast of chi from Katelynn's fist.

This time, Mizuki doesn't move--her legs. Instead, she's finally calling her energy to bear.. and the tip of her baton starts glowing. As that fist is released, she's dropping her left leg back, then tracing out a doubled circle with the glowing tip of her baton.

The blue-white tracery resolves itself into a flaring, thick, solid, mirror of ice--from behind which Mizuki cries out, "Suishou no... KAGAMI!" The ice-mirror repels that energy ball right back at Katelynn, before shattering like a mirror, shards of ice energy fading as they hit the ground.

How revolting that was. Having your own attack returned to you. Not to mention it hit hard as well. Meaning that Katelynn's on her last few breaths. But nonetheless, she musters enough strength to attempt to grab Mizuki by the shoulders and hook a leg around hers. If successful, Katelynn will trip Mizuki's leg while pushing her away at the same time, really sweeping the girl off her feet!

Somehow, Mizuki's gained some control of the fight--the distance created between Katelynn and herself lets her be more prepared for the girl's rush--letting her crouch and leap, letting Katelynn pass underneath her. And as she leaps, she tucks into a ball and -spins- downward, reaching out with her baton to try and strike Katelynn in the back of the head once more--a blow that, she hopes, will end the fight...

Even in her wounded state, Katelynn still manages to find the mental energy and focus to be able to avoid the incoming strike from Mizuki and utilize her Palm Blaster to give herself a little breathing room once again. And this time it looks like it was a bit more effective!

Countered--again. Mizuki isn't going to be doing much more in this fight. But she's goin to try her damnedest--meaning, she lunges forward after she lands, even with wobbly legs, and simply attempts to strike Katelynn with her baton, striking out with repeated thrusts, the baton glowing with the last of her power.

As the last ditch attack comes at Katelynn, she raises her guard one last time to absorb it. The pain is there and she winces a little, but that tiny bit of fighting spirit still remains within her to keep her from passing out. She takes a few deep breaths and then realizes she's still standing. With that, she ignores the referee's attempt to raise her hand in victory and instead goes over to check on her opponent.

Mizuki'll be all right. Even as she rises, and realizes... "... I lost, huh," she says, waving off Katelynn and the medics. Rising to her feet, she shakes her head, then manages a smile. "Thanks for the fight, Katelynn-san. I still have a long way to go before I'm really a fighter..." Seems like she doesn't feel like sticking around, perhaps already planning to do more training...

A smile and a bow to Mizuki before heading off to take care of post-fight things, like cleaning up and having a cool drink. Mizuki still fought well, Katelynn will give her that.

COMBATSYS: Katelynn has ended the fight here.
