Kata of the Lion

The Lion are a proud family with a tradition of mastery of the art of combat. Their sensei are brutal and unforgiving, but only because they are expected to live up-to the high standards might be granted the chance to learn these kata.

The Gentle Blade of Winter was a series of three kata, Drifting Snowflake, followed by the Leaf Upon Water and the Strike as Stone, powerful maneuvers that required a considerable amount of time to prepare, with deadly effects. With each successful strike the Akodo could disrupt the flow of chi through his opponents body leaving him weak and defenseless.

Note: This Kata works only with the katana.
