For once, something Joobs had planned for went as planned! Mizui took the bait, snatching up his parasol and allowing him to react to what was, inversely, not
expected. Kyo had enough dexterity and finesse to simply reach out and pluck the gargantuan butcher's knife from the air, sending it hurdling back towards its owner. Even more impressive was his ability to push off of it like a footstool without redirecting its trajectory!
A quick reaction from Jūbei found him dropping as low as he could, tucking his knees into his chest and rolling backwards to a position in which he was able to pierce the floor with Yoshimitsu, spring back into a crouched position atop the pommel, and soar backwards, far enough to reach out and catch his returned sword before it could clang against the ground. "Very cool, sensei!"
Jūbei mused. A small chuckle escaped, even though he knew now wasn't the time for fooling around. The swordsman raised Kubikiribōchō up to block Kyo's strike with the flat side. "You'll have to teach me that one, sometime!"
In retaliation, he swung back, using enough force to hopefully knock the blade out of his teammate's hand with the sheer weight of Kubikiribōchō.
More troublesome was Mizui, crafty as ever. His wire antics were unpredictable, and with no clear method of success at Jūbei's disposal, all he could do was attempt to dodge. A firm push from his right foot sent him rolling left, tumbling a few times before once again springing back to his feet. If he played his cards right, he could hopefully retrieve Yoshimitsu from its place in the ground, though the boy knew one of his more strategically-inclined opponents would likely swipe it up sooner than he could. "You're not making this easy, you know!"
