The Poise of the Mongoose
Manami’s previous combo masterfully parried by the warrior, yet she was ready to move on to the next play. After feeling the strength the warrior had when he parried her blows she was ready on the defensive end. As the warrior gripped his sword for a downward slash towards the mongoose, but Manami was ready. She quickly crossed her arms over her head that were protected by her tonfa batons and got low to ground and prepared for the initial shock. The sword crashed against her tonfa creating a flash of sparks. The shockwave of force was absorbed through her suit, plus being lower to the ground gave her some good leverage to use her power zones of lifting instead of just using her arms.
Manami was to brush the blade aside momentarily and while still low to the ground she quickly spun inward towards the warrior once in range like a held down spring she performed a powerful raising high heel kick aimed under the warriors chin. However the end of Manami’s heel had a hidden surprise, a small blade that could pierce if his flesh if the attack was successful. Manami was far from finished, ever the multitasker as she was performing the kick she showed amazing dexterity and balance while morphing her tonfas together to form a heavy duty bo staff. After the kick she used the momentum to twist her body slightly and used the staff as a baseball bat and swung it towards the warrior’s chest aiming to batter his lungs. Once she finished her first spin Manami twirled her staff like a true master. She pivoted and placed part of the bo staff between her right index and middle fingers. Manami quickly performed a barrage of jabs towards his face like she was using a pool cue. Once the attack finished she held her staff firm once more and was in another offensive defensive stance.
