“Okuda, Okuda Nobuyoki is my name sir.
” stated the redhead as he followed the older man who had explained that he used to be part of the Gotei United. The man had a similar fighting style to his own, at least in the most broad of terms, though he would not say as such unless directly asked. Okuda followed the man to what would be revealed to be his home, blinking at the rather lavish but small mansion that the man lived in. Okuda looked around the training field or yard that they were in a bit without leaving the side of his host, for fear of being rude.
It was then that the man said he wished to spar with the red-haired swordsman, to knock some of the rust off of himself as it were. Okuda would normally deny such a thing, but he was in the combat division, and he had not had a good spar with his real body since entering the squad itself. Unless you counted his spar with Shinda-en. Okuda let out a small sigh and walked a few paces from the man slowly, quietly agreeing to the fight. “I won’t be holding back then since you are a former captain, you’re strong that much I can gather from the fact you once held such a title...
Okuda then turned his right side towards the man, his right hand hovering over his Zanpakutō and his left hand gripping his scabbard near the top, the left thumb pressing against the tsuba to push the blade out slightly. He would let the former Captain make the first move, not wanting to be overconfident in his own skills usually, but in this case it seemed prudent for Okuda to instead make the first move.
Okuda then took a step, suddenly disappearing in a flash of Shunpo, or Flash Step, combining his own skill with the sword with this new style of movement. He was suddenly in the midst of his draw, which was naturally fast thanks to his training. Likely before Jaeden had even managed to realize the fight was on, Okuda would already be in front of him drawing his blade and slashing at the man’s midsection, though his Zanpakutō was still in its sealed state, he wanted to leave some sort of trump card in reserve, in case he needed to rely on the strength his blade gave him.
He knew he also had Shinda-en that he could utilize...if he felt pushed enough to make use of such a horrible power. He wanted little to do with the creature, but knew against a Captain that might not be a valid option for him. Okuda watched in what seemed like slow motion as his blade slashed out at the man, now fully committed to the slash, wanting to show the man he might seem weak but that he was not in fact weak.
