That was more like it. What use was just an exhibition of techniques? Especially if her only exhibition was the riveting advancement of the art that was a side kick. Those weird dancing performances humans did with their martial arts always greatly confused Kamui. They were demonstrations that they knew choreographed movements, not that they were actually applicable in anything that mattered. No, if that's what she had wanted he should have just walked out the door awhile ago...but now this was looking more promising. This finally looked like she was taking him and the interaction a little more seriously and the first thing Kamui noticed was that she was fast. Likely faster than he was in his diminished state, which was likely a problem given that based off her frame alone she was probably better at taking hits than he was. Trading blows with her probably wasn't the best tactic, but Kamui didn't have many options.
Especially if she wasn't going to continue to be so telegraphed. Of everything his father taught him, Kamui thanked him most of the Seikuken. As he returned to his ready stance which was quickly followed by Ulv dashing at him, his immediate prepared response to the descending axe kick was his Rising Jaguar and as soon as Ulv telegraphed that movement, Kamui's knees were already bending in response...unfortunately Ulv was a little less predictable than that. If Kamui's Seikuken was not so adept at reacting to and adapting to changes within his sphere, this was going to be so much worse than it already was.
She kicked off of nothing, another of those Reishi tricks Kamui assumed, and darted straight down to the ground just as Kamui was starting to leave his feet into the air, the man catching the movement at the last possible second. As Ulv caught the ground and cocked herself to drive her heel into his chest, Kamui changed his take off by a mere fraction of an inch. Not enough to avoid, but enough to soften. As the heel crashed into the right side of his chest, Kamui was already rotating with the Go no Sen. It didn't fully negate the blow, Kamui still felt the impact and subsequent pain coursing through his chest, but the rotational force softened it just enough that it didn't send him flying. It did however send him spinning faster. Using the force of her kick, Kamui sent it right back at her as his legs rotated, the hop kick aimed to slam into her thigh as it recoiled from the kick and his second leg fraction of a second later, moved to try and stomp on her abdomen before his body finished careening past her.
Kamui tucked his arms into his chest as he hit the ground, catching himself in a perfect Ukemi as he rolled across the ground and slowed to a stop. He wasn't done though, catching himself on the balls of his feet, Kamui launched up and, catching where Ulv's position was, violently sliced his hands through the air, one over top of the other while focusing Chi at the crossing point. Kamui's chi was forced forward when the hands pushed through it and rocketing the energy in the air toward Ulv. With the dampeners, the Sonic Boom wasn't going to have anywhere near the concussive or lacerating power it normally would, but it would still feel as if Kamui managed to land a haymaker from across the room if Ulv did not dodge or impede it in some way.
