Hozu moves on to the sparring mat and slides in to a cat stance. She shifts her weight, widening her stance and lowering her center of gravity to stand in a horse stance and finally shifting to stand in a front stance. She continues to practice until they are perfect then turns to Toyoki Sensei.

"Do you want an actual example or like before a spiritual example? A physical example would be the human body where the eyes, ears, brain and the bodys sense of movement itself work together in order to keep us upright and balanced, stopping us, most of the time, from toppling over. A spiritual example would be what some call karma. Without the good there cannot be the bad and without the bad there cannot be the good. Keeping the worlds deeds in balance so that no one thing triumphs over another."

Toyoki nods and smiles as he watches Hozu perform the moves. She then bowed and gave her answer to her assignment. He smirked.

"Always going the extra mile to over-achieve eh?" Toyoki chuckled....

*Appears beside Toyoki in Daofu cloths and bows* Pardon me Toyoki sensei for being late but I would like to join your class as well. Here is the payment *gives sensie check*(I like to do things in advance). Ah, those stances reminds me of kungfu/

*Walks inside class to a spot and stands straight. Relaxes and loosens his entire body and slids into low horse stance facing forward with back straight. Next, smoothly shifts 95% of his body weight into his right leg and turns into low cat stance facing one side. Then shifts his body weight as he moves his left leg forward-down into front stance with his upperbody facing forward making a straight with the back leg. He continues to practice this with noth legs*

As for the first assignment. An example would be humans. Soul and flesh, different but unseparable for the existance of humans on earth. Or for extreme example, you may look at spirits(beings) and earth-Pure spiritual and pure physical entity.

"I apologise for actually taking the time to think about my answers sensei." Hozu bows then walks to a corner and kneels down, closing her eyes and starting to relax.

"Hmmm...that's a very good example Saito. I thought it would be one of the first responses from the students for their first assignment. Quite obvious, really. Humans. Simple, and answers the question accurately. Well done."

Toyoki paused.

"It is true indeed. People say humans as in people in the flesh. However, people also say things like, 'That is what it means to be human', which is the spiritual counterpart of who we are."


Toyoki Ryusei nods at his former subordinate, now Captain of the 6th Division and proceeds to tie on the yellow belt to his new student...

"ehhh i missed a lesson............ hrrs i shall strive to beat hozu-senpai"

rolls out a mat and then starts the first cat stance then shift towards the horse stance but fails in keeping still...............attempts again with the cat stance, then realizes my mistake and tries again,
this time completing it, the moves on to the front stance, which i easily perform because of my experience in close up fights as it can be combined with several attacks.

i continue to do the stances continuing to practice until my body recognizes the main principales of the moves until i can transfer from the cat-horse easily,
then when he hears the question he quickly knows the answer,
though im entirely focused on this i hear hozu say my answer but with much more detail.

"errrs, yeah i agree, humans as well as animals, they both have balance within their bodies,
although their can be some differences most living creatures especially humans themselves
constantly demonstrate balance, almost every organ in the human body works together to keep
the balance"

"Hmmm...I'd appreciate more originality Kyohaku. Can you think of something else that demonstrates or has balance of any sorts?"

Toyoki smiles as he removes the white belt from Gin's waist and begins tying on his new yellow belt.

"It is a pleasure to meet you too, student. Excellant insight. I'm sure you'll go far in this class."


Toyoki bows slightly.

hmm~ onto the second assignment i guess... *bows towards sensei and starts demostrating the stances then bows again after completion*

My example of balance would be ying and yang. This simply shows balance because there are two entities LOL. As shown on the symbol there is no more yin than yang. The meaning of ying and yang is practically opposites however those opposites have to be equal, if not then there will be nothing, for example, it is said that women are yin and men are yang, without the two parts making a mutual whole then whatever the result it wouldn't last for long e.g. a race of men without women, vice versa, would not last. The balance here is very important because once the opposites sides interact, it would give birth to things, perfect example of men and women... if the man's side is dominant between the two (genes, chromosomes, whatever) then the outcome would be the birth of a boy and if the same for women then the birth of a girl.

there is another example towards yin and yang and that its the dot that they both hold... it is said that in every darkness there is light, and in light there is darkness... if one didnt have that, then the other would have to disappear. e.g. sun and the moon... while the sun is out there are shadows then when that takes over there is light which would be reflects from the sun (kinda tells you what power light has over darkness) if there was no light to begin with then there would be no shadow... which would also make it impossible to switch over meaning there would be nothing... i think

Toyoki remained silent while listening. Remarkable...

"Very nice Gin-kun. I wouldn't be surprised if you are the first to reach shodan..."

Toyoki curtly nodded. However, inside, he is very proud of his students.
