Eh? Clap her cheeks? For a moment, her stance faltered as those words reached her ears. That was an interesting way of phrasing you'd defeat someone or overcome them, she thought. Was it some sort of slang-like phrase she was unfamiliar with? Whatever it was, the shield of the Shihoin had no intent of letting it distract her from the spar. She'd just search it up later or inquire about it with one of her peers. The momentary falter in her stance allowed Nanashi to land a few strikes at different parts of the woman's body, just as she had instructed earlier.
It wasn't enough to take her down by any measure of the word but Rio marvelled at how grounded they felt, noting the increase of focus Nanashi was employing with each strike. There was a particular sense of pride burning within her at how well the pink-haired vizard was picking up on her teachings. The pride of a teacher? Definitely. Focusing on the woman with amber eyes burning with competitiveness, Rio would remain grounded as she followed her with a prideful gaze, curious to see what else she could employ.
The combination attacks were a magnificent approach. They hadn't taken her off of out of her element entirely but they could be an issue if she allowed her to keep piling it on. As such, rather than employ deflection, Rio would use her dexterity, trained to it's upper limit in the past, to shift from side to side and move in alternating patterns to confuse her, forcing Nanashi to pick her spots more diligently than at first.
