The Big Woman
Hanako casually swiped a rogue strand of hair out of her face, while she looked at Jaeden.
“Well, this attempt didn’t go so well, but I think I will get there with a little bit of training. So...I’d really like to learn the next two techniques as well.”
It was true that the first attempt didn’t go well and that Hanako used up a lot of time and energy to just get her stabbing technique right. But, when she finally tried to release the energy in a similar fashion to Jaeden’s version of Shigure Shinrin Ryu, she had seen and felt that it was possible, even with her levels of energy control. It would require a lot of practice, but there it was: a basis.
While Jaeden concentrated on Yoriko Hanako returned to practicing her first technique. She was fairly certain that her stabbing was on a good way, but the part with the energy wasn’t. The goal was to release it from the very tip of the blade, in the moment she stabbed her opponent. To be effective it needed to be controlled, concentrated. A precise projectile like an arrow, not like a stick of dynamite like her first try.
When she heard Yoriko’s voice she stopped her practice and looked at the other woman. She smiled her usual crooked, shy smile.
“I’m fine, thanks for asking. And you? You’re okay?”
She shot a quick glance at the dummy that showed quite some signs of her stabbing-practice.
“Actually, yeah, I think it does help. This technique alone is really helpful. I mean, he showed me more or less the basics and left me to develop my own version of it. At first I had my doubts about this method, but now...I think it makes sense. I can make it my own technique from the very beginning. And, to be honest, I wouldn’t have thought of channeling energy through my blade before. So this really does help me quite a bit.”
She looked at Yoriko. The exercise that Jaeden hat came up with for her did look more than a bit taxing.
“What do you think?”

He nodded as he looked at Yoriko rubbing his chin. He had a solution to her problem, it would take time to polish. He gave a nod to Hanako, the two forms next were things she could practice with time. But first, it was time to get Yoriko somewhere. "This is what I think would help, your power over the earth can be used on a concert like I said. "
He walked to a second dummy, swinging his fist and stopping for a moment. "As you swing your fist try to have small bits of the earth attack them. Pebbles, whatever you think you can manage. "
He'd wait a moment now as he walked in between the two dummies the best place to monitor them both. Yoriko was free of the previous training to try refining her art he suggested. It was up to her however she chose to go with it. "Form 2 is Defensive and Form 3 is Ranged, once again don't feel obligated to do it how I do it. Whatever feels natural to you is the best choice. "
He said before bringing his sword in front of him, performing the second form. appeared straight forward, but quickly reiatsu began pooling in front of him. Around his body and defending him like a wall in front of him. "That's Form 2, it can be done while moving but it's mostly for a situation where you may not be able to completely block or avoid something. For example a Kido spell, I can help you with Hadō One or a Bala..to refine it more. As for the third form."
Concise instructions were an important part of this as he brought his sword down. Lowering it to have the edge at his knee in length. A small orangish glow formed of a cero around his sword. He could release it now with a single slash of his blade. Making a small cut upwards he sent it into the clouds.
"The third form is a ranged offensive move, it allows for a person to match an energy blow or fight tactically at a distance. Practice them in whatever order feels comfortable and change them to fit your narrative. Be it Swordsmanship, Hand to hand, or even the Flash Step. We all are different and have sizes and preferences so it's best to sync to them."
His eyes looked towards Yoriko again having shown both forms for Hanako, demonstrating a style. Three forms would be enough he imagined. Twelve forms total he didn't mention the last two had two different moves in them. This information would only serve to overload them.
The goal was complete now for Hanako, she'd seen them only Yoriko remained. Would she go with that idea or maybe another type of defense was in order. Something that acted automatically in her interest.
He'd need time to see her grow and how she developed from it all. That would be the main sticking point. For now, she showed a desire to remain at a distance. So he'd teach around that best as he could.

The Wandering Genin
Watching him walk towards two training dummies, and demonstrating the second form. Reiatsu began to form around his body like an aura but he wasn't moving at all, once shown he explained how it worked. The second form he demonstrated showed curiosity and excitement from the shinigami, she has been in situations where she wasn't able to block. The kido spell Jaeden did earlier while being too focused on his clones was one. "Hmm. That form might be more efficient for someone like me..besides all these ranged abilities and close quarters will be my biggest concern. Question is..how fast can i react to do it.
She watched as Jaden's sword began to glow orange, almost condensing it before looking upward seeing the cut cut then move towards the clouds..hopefully nobody would call a captain about this.
Least hand to hand and flash step was an option, it was a weird option but even the best fighters will have to do hand-to-hand combat eventually. Far as flash step though, she has gotten better but not enough."Jaeden, I normally use my earth more. And based on what you saw earlier my strength, would the same apply to that as well?"
