    I think its close to the power of kendo but the swords are built different. I at least don't have the same slashing power with the Chinese sword as when I hold a katana . Same with the speed of Fencing, sure I can thrust but not nearly as quickly since most Chinese swords are heavier and shorter. It's a nice a in between though.

    Granted I feel safest with a spear/staff (If we're talking about non-modern day warfare). I'll take on all of you sword users. jkjk, don't want to get 0wned.

    On topic, thanks for the play styles Sai. Also, PoT defies the laws of physics and since Atobe is a genius. He could make fencing a viable tennis skill set.

    I really want to see Sanada using kendo fight Atobe using fencing!

    Well by power of Kendo, you can get close to the same pure force, but not the slicing ability. I studied Choy Lee Fut for about 7-8 years. The thing about the Dahn Dao is that it is highly manuverable while still maintaining a good deal of slicing ability due to the thinness of the blade.

    Personally I'm a Guan Dao user ^^ I have the most proficiency with that. I jsut happen to know Dahn Dao also.

    Ah, so your a mixer. I just studied norther styles that was hard enough for me. Yeah, spears FTW for those that don't know what a Guan Dao is.

    On topic...

    Lolz on the Oshitari Cousins...honestly I didn't think they were popular enough to be #3 in the running to get a Pair Puri...but I'm still thankful.
    Dang, starting to get too old for manga and anime....

    Kenya isn't really that popular, but Oshitari is one of the most popular characters in the whole series. He's always in the Top 10 in the popularity polls.

    Well, Oshitari is a genius and the second strongest player on Hyoutei, while Kenya is apparently the weakest named character on Shitenhouji.

    Really? He put up quite a fight vs Goddamn Shiraishi.

    I think he could beat the gay pair, gin, and Zaizen.

    Would definitely lose vs Chitose and Kintarou though, just like he lost vs Shiraishi.

    I can't find it on the internet haha


    I personally think Oshitari is better - just the variety he has, i cant even name half his special shots, like DFDR, SSAS, FAS, F+D etc. Kenya on the other hand, has proven he's just fast and got 3 points off Shiraishi. Woohoo!! - Hang on did Fuji get even three points in the first few games v Shiraishi?

    Whether or not he could beat Zaizen is a different matter - we have absolutely no idea what Zaizen can actually do.

    Well, he's weaker than Zaizen. That's why he was the one chosen to sit out against Tezuka/Inui, and not Zaizen. Gin is definitely stronger, too.

    He's probably better than the Gay Pair individually, but they're better in doubles.

    Hmm...I don't know if having him sit out made him weaker...but I remember their coach saying something to Kenya about, "don't slow Zaizen down...."

    Yeah, he did say that. It seemed to me like Kenya was on the weaker side. As far as we know he's just a faster Kamio.

    Yeah. Zaizen is weaker than Chitose to the point where he can't even do anything but watch the match, and yet is stronger than Kenya, who scored 3 points in a 7 point match vs a guy who owned Kantou Fuji to a point that no one thought it was even possible.

    So Kenya is stronger than Kantou Fuji, who was just barely above Kantou Kirihara...

    So Kenya should be more or less equal to Krauser.

    Scoring three points doesn't really tell us much, though. I mean, anyone can win three rallies. We don't even know if Shiraishi was going at 100%. I don't think that really proves that he is stronger than Fuji at the Kantou level, really.

    Fuji Kantou level couldn't score at all against Shiraishi, until he became Nationals Fuji.

    So...yeah, 3 points count.
