Seeing that Kuina didn't take himself seriously, Zoro was angry, but he still stood aside unwillingly.
Now, he is no longer the idiot boy who came to Challenge the Dojo.
After losing to Kuina more than a thousand times, he knew that he was still a long way from Kuina.
Moreover, dealing with the people who kicked the hall is indeed the task of the chief.
"After defeating you, can I challenge the Dojo owner"
El looked directly at Kuina, who was about the same height as him, and then glanced at Zoro.
"Or do I need to defeat everyone here before I can challenge the Dojo owner"
"...If you can defeat me, the next step is the owner of the Dojo as your opponent."
El's 'arrogance' caused Kuina's eyebrows to frown slightly, but she still replied with a serious expression.
El glanced at Koushirou, who was already sitting cross-legged on a futon, with a squinted look.
Koushirou, who did not intervene, nodded towards Kuina.
"In that case, let's start!"
After finishing speaking, El took out the sword from his waist, handed it to Carina who was standing beside him and walked to the duel area with Kuina.
Coming to a wooden barrel full of bamboo sword, El took out a bamboo sword, turned to look at Kuina, who was already holding a bamboo sword, and followed the 'teacher' who taught him swordsmanship for a few days, and taught him the etiquette of swordsmen.
"My name is El, please advise."
"My name is Kuina, please advise!"
Looking at El, who was completely different from Zoro back then, he was obviously not a beginner, Kuina couldn't help showing a hint of fighting intent on her face.
As a genius swordsman who can defeat an adult at the age of nine, except for her father, there is no one in the Dojo who is her opponent.
Kuina exuded the confidence that both Carina and Nami envied.
That substantive temperament is the aura accumulated from countless victories.
If Kuina can continue to maintain this aura, she will definitely get twice the result with half the effort when she comes into contact with the power of Haki in the future.
Although they haven't fought yet, El has to admit.
If it is said that before meeting Kuina, Carina was the best peer that El had ever met.
So now, with Kuina in front of him, the light on her body completely obscures Carina.
It's a pity that such a fully girl o who will definitely be no less than Gion, unexpectedly fell down the stairs and died because of an accident.
Thinking of this, El looked at the girl in front of him, who, like Carina and Nami, did not give off an unpleasant aura, and suddenly had an idea.
Perhaps, he can change the fate of this girl.
At this moment, the middle-aged man just now had turned into a referee, standing next to El and Kuina, shouting loudly.
Kuina didn't notice El's distraction.
With a light drink, she held a bamboo knife in both hands and slashed towards El.
Looking at the magnified bamboo sword in his eyes, El came back to his senses, and then mercilessly showed the power on the different dimension in front of the girl, and even all the students.
they saw El gently waving the bamboo sword in his hand.
An unbelievably cold glow, like a white line, flashed past Kuina's eyes.
she only felt light in her hand, as if the bamboo knife had fallen from her hand.
However, the handle of the bamboo knife was still in her hand.
But the blade of the bamboo sword cut into two pieces and fell to the ground.
Judging from the smooth and straight-cut surface, the bamboo sword is like being cut in the middle by the sharpest weapon in the world.
In fact, the weapon that cuts off the bamboo sword have no sharpness at all.
It is a bamboo sword specially designed for beginners to practice swordsmanship.
The scene of El severing the bamboo sword shocked the audience.
At the same time, Koushirou, who didn't speak from the beginning to the end, was also shocked.
Koushirou open his squinted eyes, with a rare look of shock in his eyes, staring at El who was holding a bamboo sword in one hand and looked calm.
"a swordsman who can cut through steel."
The words slowly spit out from Koushirou mouth and spread throughout the silent gymnasium.
"What is a Master swordsman It sounds like he is very powerful!"
"It's amazing, how did that guy break the bamboo sword on Sister Kuina's hand"
"Idiot, it's not breaking, it's cutting!"
"Really, how does the bamboo knife cut off another bamboo knife"
"Uh...I don't know either!"
As Koushirou words fell, the entire Dojo fell into a sensation.
Everyone's reaction is different.
The middle-aged man who knew something about swordsmanship, and Kuina, who was stunned, looked at El in horror.
And those beginners, or the students who belonged to the trainee swordsmen, looked like they didn't know anything.
"cutting through steel...
Kuina speak her father's words and looked at El with a complicated expression.
She never thought of it.
The young man in front of him who looked about her own age turned out to be a swordsman who could cut through steel.
No wonder, he can cut off her own bamboo sword with his bamboo sword.
But, is not this too young!
People of the same age as her have mastered the legendary "Cutting through Steel", can she really become the world's greatest swordsman
does what my father said is true a woman always inferior to a man
At this moment, the self-confidence accumulated by Kuina's countless victories was instantly dealt a huge blow.
Father's usual disappointment, as well as the importance of Zoro, like a slideshow, kept flashing in Kuina's mind.
Thinking of this, Kuina bit her lower lip hard and ran out with an unacceptable look.
It was the first time he saw Kuina lose, and it was also the first time Zoro saw the power on a different dimension.
All Kuina's thoughts were seen by El.
However, he did not stop the girl from leaving, nor did he comfort the girl.
Without showing his strength and shattering the pride of the girl, his flash of inspiration would not be able to be implemented.
And compared to Kuina, El has not forgotten the real goal of this trip.
