Please note: This article is about the Hundred Stances sensei. For other uses of the term, please see Sawao (disambiguation).

Bayushi Sawao was bushi of the Scorpion Clan who left his clan to become the founder of the Hundred Stances Dojo and its first sensei. [1]

Ronin Edit

Sawao was a bushi of low status and distressingly numerous enemies. He was fleeing when he stumbled upon a set of scrolls in a desolate plain. He was fascinated by the texts about kenjutsu written by Oshiro, the forgotten founder of the Hundred Stances style, and Sawao resolved to dedicate his life to them. [2]

Sensei Edit

Sawao retired from the Scorpion Clan and set out to build the Dojo of a Hundred Stances near the spot where he found the scrolls. Due to his low reputation as warrior, only a handful of close friends and curious retirees followed him. A couple of students who were genuinely skilled swordsmen allowed Sawao to further develop the style. [2]

Death Edit

A group of ronin he had wronged in the past located him and attacked the dojo, overwhelming the still few and ill-equipped students. Sawao was killed and the marauders torched the place. [2]

Legacy Edit

Eventually, years later, Akodo Kentsu found the ruins of the dojo and some of the Hundred Stances scrolls, rebuilding the dojo. [3]
