Speed: it could make or break a fight. Many combatants often sought out immense strength, but many often do not put enough consideration into the element of speed. It plays a crucial role in any battle that one may find themselves placed in. From the reaction speed needed in order to evade hypersonic magic spells, to the physical speed required in order to outrun certain destruction from widespread attacks, to the mental level in how fast one could process thought; there are many different areas where speed could come in handy and the training session for today was meant to cement that fact of reality in Hayden's skull.
Now, why would The Beast of Karakura even bother training anyone? Investment. It couldn't hurt to begin investing more in the future of the world just as many others have done in his own past. While his body could inevitably live forever if he were not killed in combat, there was a sinking feeling in the chest of The Yuudeshi that perhaps one day he might not be around to help resolve the conflict which occurs in the world. Therefore, this wouldn't be the first instance of him training random candidates throughout Karakura Central to take up the mantle as Earth's Defenders.
Hence, through this scenario is where our albino protagonist would find himself in the middle of the wastelands attempting to train Desmond Hayden. While he had the data he could gorge himself on via the files uploaded to the Yuudeshi Network from the Vanguard, all he truly needed to know was that the man on the profile he skimmed often fought on the side good and he was interested in seeing whether or not he could be turned into an ally of Karakura Central. Therefore, he'd emerge in a vortex of white light one hundred meters away from the Hayden.
Once he had his sights on Hayden, The Beast of Karakura Central would go in a straight line dash towards the male at speeds which placed him at Supersonic speeds from the get-go. However, there would have been no sonic-boom heard or felt. As, the ever looming prowess of Imaginary Computation would have suppressed the pressure waves generated by said boom and kept his presence, more or less, silent. Since, in estimate of time comparable to a half second, Shadin would have aimed to tap the right shoulder of Hayden.
While, in the same amount of time, his mind would have had enough processing power behind it in order to maintain a field of kinetic rejection around him. Since, with his ability to control momentum and kinetics, a small shield around the size of The Yuudeshi's body would have engulfed him and made any direct physical contact with him likely result in something like a hand or limb being repelled in the opposite direction; akin to a repulsion shield.
This was done in part in order to make it rather difficult to get a good grip on him and so he could start the game of tag with a bang. As, with the speed The Beast of Karakura was moving at, Hayden may not have even been able to get a glimpse of what the male looked like apart from white blurs and a crimson trail of light from his eyes. He was putting the pedal to the medal and giving himself a work-out so his speed wouldn't decay and rot from atrophy.
So, instead, he would only utter these words out to the battlegrounds:"Tag, your it."
Then, an eruption of sound would blast the area and the skies themselves would break away; while the earth itself shook in the wake of his compressed sonic-booms being unleashed and rocking the region like a hellish storm. As Imaginary Computation manipulated the laws of physics and managed to compress the sonic booms long enough for them to be released at a later time. This had done in order to make it difficult to find and locate The Yuudeshi. As his energy was appearing in the skies, the ground beneath them and in the air surrounding Hayden. While, in the land around them, smaller bursts continued to erupt and it was going to be extremely hard to discern the location of where Shadin was.
Thus, it is where the first challenge came: how will you react to an opponent whom you cannot see or touch?
That was going to be the test for Hayden and he was going to need to discover a way to reach him.
Hence, The Yuudeshi would utter these words as his voice was projected in every direction:"Now, figure out how to catch something you can't perceive."
And with that -- the game was on!
