Strategy 1 (Melee)

You are forced to use Kusarigama as weapon for this fight. Shisenin Kosen will use all the same Kusarigama skills as you can. A slightly cheesy method for an easy win is stay in low stance, and lure him to the bridge in the dojo. dodge around until he has to cross either the bridge or the water beside it to reach you and wait right at the edge. just as his passing starts to round the corner begin a normal light attack combo (the spinning overhead attack) he'll eat all or most of the combo and you can backdash out before he retaliates. rinse and repeat. He has a second phase where he buffs attack and defense but the cheese method works just fine on it as you shouldn't be hit and he doesn't gain a speed buff, so the Defense buff just slows the damage down.


Strategy 2 (Magic)

This is a weapon only fight . No Magic Usable.
