Have you ever thought to yourself, what techniques do my clan know and master? We all know about our clan's name, we all know about our clan's history, but we know only little of what our families are capable of. Today, Binsu was finally going to train and master the few jutsus his brother Shibirin explained to him how he could do them, hoping they may become useful to him later on in the future. The truth was that Binsu needed the aid of these techniques now more than ever, as he was aiming for a rank higher than his own. His destination in life had just been delayed, his overall goal stretched further than before. He had now set smaller goals in between his longer goals, and in order to just get one of those smaller goals, he was going to need more jutsus and techniques: this is where Shibirin’s scroll comes in.

Binsu took out the scroll now and examined it. Shibirin had written the instructions on how to do each of the jutsus, though they weren’t simple instructions. They just explained about the different stages of the jutsu one needed to practise and grasp first, before they could even attempt the full jutsu or technique. The first technique was probably the easiest: a kenjutsu move called ‘Miss Interpreted Swing’. Shibirin wrote, ‘The user makes an attempt at slashing at the target with the basic slash of the sword either by with a left swing, right swing or diagonal swing, but just as the sword seems to come half way into reaching the target, the user twists their arm in a 180 degrees motion from the original swing and then re-slashes at the opponent from the opposite direction of the original intended swing. Basically, you swing but don’t hit in the first swing, you stop half way then swing from the opposite direction’. Binsu drew out his Hakujona blade: he couldn’t wait to start practising the kenjutsu move.

So firstly, he had to master the swinging motion. Binsu held his Hakujona blade in his right hand, using the inverse grip and he swung the sword horizontally from the far left to the right (his right, target’s left). He repeated this motion for a few more times (4x) before moving on to the second step. He read the step carefully. It said, ‘After mastering the swinging motion, practice this same motion with the same speed, but come to an immediate halt half way into the swing.’ Binsu decided to do as the scroll said, so he prepared himself for the swing. He held his sword horizontally in front of him and brought it towards the far left corner. He then swung the sword horizontally across to his right, with the same force as before, but when he tried to stop half way, the sword kept on going and refused to stop, though it did lose some kinetic energy along the way when he tried to stop it. Binsu tried this same motion over and over again, until on the 6th try, he finally got it to stop half way, making sure it stopped dead-still in the middle. The fast stopping motion did hurt his arm the first few times he practiced it, but after a few more attempts, the motion was almost natural to him. He now needed to try one last thing: switching the direction of the blade almost instantly, after stopping it in the middle and then he needed to swing the blade back towards the left, this time starting from the right. He tried the first motion, then once they blade stopped dead-still in the middle, Binsu only counted a second, before he spun the sword around and over to the right side, before doing the first motion, but in reverse. The overall result: a miss-interpreted swing. It was a simple technique, yet it was performed so fast it gave no warnings to the opponent, nor did it give them more than a second to react. Alone, it was weak, but mixed with another strong technique, it could prove lethal to any opponent.
