Let's have a match (Knyves)

Shiro Puroresu, the wrestling-nin known as King, stood just behind a curtain. He then looked off to the side to see the official give him the go ahead. King nodded before he stepped through the curtain. He looked out to the crowd that was in the building, who cheered in response to his appearance. The masked wrestler nodded before he walked down the ramp, focusing on the ring that laid near the bottom of it. As he did so, the ring announcer made the usual introductions, as any ring announcer would.

This was a normal sight for King. What wasn't normal was him stepping inside of the ring with a fighter who WASN'T a wrestler. Still, this fighter's manager reached out to his manager, who felt that it would be a great test for King. Plus, it was more money for the orphanage, which King could not say no to even if he tried.

Shiro hopped onto the apron before ducking underneath the top rope as he stepped inside of the ring. He then turned his attention towards the stage of the entry ramp, waiting on his opponent.

"This... is ridiculous." Souhei shifted his weight restlessly from one leg to the other, trying to loosen up for the big moment. It wasn't working.

"Look kid, don't worry, it's all fake! You'll get in their, throw a few grapples his way, make it look good, and he'll fold! These guys are just a bunch of fakers next to you, my shining pupil!" The 'manager' took a more serious tone suddenly, his eyes glinted cold fact. "Besides, you still have yet to settle you-"

"I'm fully aware of my debt Kiyumamaru." Souhei bit the words out, trying to silence the older man. It was easy for him to say, he wasn't about to be the one getting slapped around a ring with a crowd of people watching. Where was the honor in this?!

~~~


Souhei peered past the curtain, testing the waters before emerging. The ramp was a long one, the trip to the ring longer still. Assaulted by the angry jeers of a crowd who were already fans of the other fighter, Souhei bore it in silence, back straight and head high, the bearing of a warrior.

"Souhei, of the Seisen Clan." His voice was cold and quiet. True, inside he was a boiling pot of emotions, but at the moment, he had stilled every inner conflict for this moment. It was eat or be eaten time.

Bright green analytical eyes surveyed the other man, while his a gloved hand swept white bangs behind an ear. The 'King', as he was called, was a big man, taller than Souhei by a great deal, meaning the reach advantage was with him, as well as the power of his strikes. Souhei would have to rely on speed and his technical ability likely.

"I apologize for the breach in etiquette, but what are the rules to this engagement? The... details were left incomplete by my master." Under the roar of the crowd, either King would have to be a lip reader, or he wouldn't have heard Souhei at all. And as that thought occured to Souhei, the anouncer cried out something about the match beginning...

Shiro tilted his head as the man tried to mouth something to him. Despite being a ninja, lip reading was far from a mastered art for him. As the announcer called for the beginning of the match, Shiro gave a curt nod before he started to circle around his opponent. His eyes never left him as he tried to figure out what this guy had up his sleeve. While most people would think that King had the advantage, the teen Puroresu knew very well that HE could be the one at the disadvantage. Had his opponent been a wrestler, he could have had a SLIGHT idea about what his offense would or could be. But this one.... he was drawing a blank.

He finally came to a stop before he took a few step tentative steps forward before he dived in low, trying his beast to grab his opponent leg.

Souhei wasn't frantic. Worrying would not help in the slightest. A fight was a fight, regardless of the curious rules. Still, it wouldn't suit to be disqualified. Bringing his arms up to protect his face, Souhei resembled a boxer in his stance, though he bounced on the balls of his feet a good deal more. It was a martial art he had noticed some two or three towns back, some form of kick-boxing stance that he had liked a good deal. It was mobile and light, a perfect posture to counter a larger opponent.

His opponent circled, once. Twice. And then it began. Surging in the brute charged like a freight train, seeking to take Souhei's mobility first. A good move for a larger opponent. Bouncing on his feet the exact moment of impact, Souhei torqued his chest, flipping his legs through the air to safety. THe result was a light and nimble flip, with Souhei's back rolling across the top of the bigger man's shoulders.

Hitting the mat on his feet, Souhei twisted. Typical human instinct told a warrior to turn and face a foe, and so Souhei twisted, pushing off the ground with his front foot and bringing his right knee around. The flying knee. If instinct won, 'The King' would turn round to find his face filled with a knee-cap. If he didn't, Souhei could target the spine, maybe throw off the enemy's balance.

As expected, the fight was rather quick. King growled as his opponent rolled off of his shoulders. No doubt that the man landed right behind him. Internally, he smiled, believing that things were going to be interesting. With that thought in mind/ King did the only he could do: Turn around. As he did, however, he turned right into a knee to the face. Growling in pain, King took a few quick steps back, holding his face. Despite the fact he was wearing a jaguar mask, it did little, if not nothing, to do dull the pain. However, King was not ready to fall back. After taking one last step back, King powered forward, with his arm outward.

Hoping that he didn't take too long, he was hoping to catch him off guard with a Lariat. He would have gone for a Spear, but the Lariat would allow him more time to recover should his move miss.

Spoiler:
Name: Lariat
Rank: D
Range: Close (0 Meters)
Jutsu Type: Taijtusu
Elemental Affinity: N/A
Clan: Puroresu

Description: The user will run at high speed at the opponent. Once close enough, the user will then bring his arm out towards the side and use it to strike the opponent. Once the arm connects, the user will use that arm to drive the opponent down to the ground. Alternatively, this technique can be done by a stronger individual by taking one step foward before peforming it, rather than running at high speed.

Souhei was about to mount his continued offensive, when the behemoth before him ceased his backward momentum. Like an enormous slingshot, the mountain of muscle rocketed forwards, a limb the size of a tree trunk headed for Souhei's face. Every instinct within his body told him to reverse his direction and flee the onslaught, yet Souhei pushed forward.

With his back foot shifting forward, he took his weight off his front foot, slipping it behind and around his body in an arc that smoothly circumvented the onrushing titan and placed Souhei behind him, facing him. It didn't give him any advantage to attack from, but it kept him from getting smashed by that enormous arm.

Tai Sabaki, a trick he had picked up in a dojo outside Iwagakure, yet one he hadn't had much oppurtunity to put to use as of yet.

Followed by a particular favorite of his. The Wing Chun chain punches. Tucking in his elbows to his sides and lining up his fists, by flexing his triceps Souhei unleashed a rapid fire chain of fists all pinpointed on the small of the big man's back. The punches were weak in strength, but fast, like an avalanche of pebbles to swallow a giant. Against an opponent this big, closing the gap was a poor choice, but all Souhei had to work with, so he started stepping into his opponent, adding force to his punches and trying to push the giant toward the edge of the ring.
