[Day 25 - Early Afternoon] Iaijutsu Tournament - Round 2 Pairings

A series of tatami floored rooms ring the dojo. At any given time, wooden and bamboo practice swords can be heard clacking or the sensei lecturing students. Peculiarly enough, compared to most dojo, these sensei speak with more questions than orders. Here, one corner of the ground floor has been reserved for guests to practice their own martial arts. At the center, a larger tatami floor spreads against a short conclave of bleachers. The east wall is occupied by a trio of shrines to Mirumoto, Shinsei and Togashi. A single stone at the base marks the grave of Mirumoto Hojatsu. Akin to the shrine in the village, a banner hangs with the words "Neither Will I."

[Day 25 - Early Afternoon] Iaijutsu Tournament - Round 2 Pairings

Gathering his breath, Togashi Gozato gestures for the senior student holding the back to step forward. Gozato reaches into the bag, pulling forth the names of the second round of pairings.

"The first pairing of the second round is... Daigotsu Yukari of the Spider Clan and... Akodo Kibo of the Lion Clan."

He sets the two chops aside, and reaches back into the bag twice more for the final two competitors.

"The second pairing of the second round is... Kakita Karasu of the Crane Clan and Soshi Kazusa of the Scorpion Clan."

He gestures for Daigotsu Yukari and Akodo Kibo to take their places on the main floor.

As the first duelists stand and take their stances, Togashi Gozato observes calmly. And then, in an instant, blades have flown free of their saya and flash past each other. Another kharmic strike.

Togashi Gozato pauses, silently, waiting to see if either contestant will concede the victory to the other, his gaze impassive. As Akodo Kibo bows and surrenders the match, the elder ise zumi nods in respect to the honor shown.

The elder ise zumi lifts his fan and gestures towards Daigotsu Yukari.

"Victor... Daigotsu Yukari of the Spider Clan."

Togashi Gozato watches the duel between Soshi Kazusa and Kakita Karasu. No blade is drawn, and yet the match is resolved. He nods in approval of the outcome, and gestures with his fan.

"Victor... Kakita Karasu of the Crane Clan."
