      Tempest along with its upgrade Backwave and Backwave II works, one reason as to why it isn't triggering is your own reaction time to execute the move which is immediate or 0.1 reaction time.
      Take some time to practice this move in The Guardian of the Underworld by walking around the gauntlet trigger marker and training on Reverants.

        So I have to get rid of their ki (which tends to break their guard) and then use this skill to break their guard...? That doesn't sound very useful, I was hoping for more of "does a ton of ki damage to blocking opponents to probably break their guard from like half ki because late in the game nothing really cares much if you bash their guard with an silly little katana"

          Same Problem here, never actually got it to work. Kinda sucks right now. Even the skills after that: Backwave and Backwave II seem somewhat broken and not function properly
