[Day 30 EM] Bokkens Before Breakfast - Final Day!

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."

She walked up to him, encouraging Kenichi to do the same.

"I think there is a kata that we all know," said Yamada. "Perhaps we could demonstrate it together?"

Kazusa entered the dojo that morning with a bright look about her, perhaps a satisfied smile on her face. She paid all respects to the dojo and noted Haihime, as well as the others. After leaving her daisho and sandals behind, she picked up a bokken, laid it over her shoulder and stood next to young lady, the monk who was to become a samurai, and watched the kata demonstration.

When they were together, the three of them drew their katanas and as one performed the kata The Empire Rests on its Edge. There was grace, finesse in their movements, showing the best of what the art of the sword could be.

Haihime watched with a satisfied smile. "The harmony displayed is most grand. A true display of power and finesse." Haihime rose and bowed to the gathered. "None of you will be forgotten."
