Description: Pushing his body to its limits Akashi has focused this technique on his enhanced speed and ability to move between several points in the time that previously would take to move once, raising his Speed by 1 Tier. Only possible when used within an area ranging 20 meters and the target being within said area. The attack begins with a sudden dash designed to clip the target with either blade, foot or fist, followed by a return dash upon contact with a jumping point within the designated range. This sequence can be repeated two more time for a total of three per post, starting with with Kenjutsu or Taijutsu and alternating between the two with each strike to whittle their opponent down. Each time the technique is initiated the user must choose which strike they will begin with as it will dictate the following two strikes with the alternating nature of the move.
Weaknesses: Requires an environment that has at least two different jumping points within the range, the more the better as they lower the number of predictable outcomes once the technique is recognized. Not only are these footholds requires to be in the immediate area but they must by at points that allow for the user to graze their target, meaning the foothold much be in the direct line of action being taken. Being that the technique is fairly basic in its alternating strikes, any opponent who encounters this technique will subsequently gain a tier of Perception for any additional use of it against them.
