The Battle of the Great Climb or the Siege of the Great Climb occurred in 711 after Akodo Yokutsu used an insult he received from an Agasha ambassador in court as a pretext a Lion assault on the Dragon lands.  In actual fact he still sought vengeance over his true love marrying a Dragon. Leading five legions of Lions against the Dragon, he carefully avoided the lands of the Dragonfly Clan,  honoring his vow to never to harass Mirumoto Asijin or Isawa Maroko's lands again.
During the assault, Yokutsu demanded of the Dragon to be allowed to redeem his honor by dueling Mirumoto Asijin, who had married Yokutsu's betrothed seven years before. The Dragon Clan Champion Togashi Ayoko arranged the duel.  Asijin and Yokutsu met on the very steps of Kyuden Agasha. Yokutsu easily slew Asijin, who never even drew his sword.  Asijin however had made a deal with Ayoko; the Dragonfly were under the Dragon Clan's protection 
The arrogant Yokutsu declared himself the Dragonfly Clan Champion and his intention to marry the newly widowed Isawa Maroko. The son of Asijin and Maroko, Tonbo Kuyuden, challenged Yokutsu to a duel and killed him, reclaiming the title of Dragonfly Champion. From then on the Dragonfly were the official emissaries of the Dragon Clan.

|Way of the Dragon Page 27 says Yokutsu was insulted by a Kitsuki diplomat, but Third Edition Page 14 says Agasha. It is assumed the newer source is correct, as the Kitsuki family was not founded until more than one hundred years after this incident.|
