It was true that Rin didn’t see her expression or the specific details such as the eyes, the teeth, and the like. In truth he felt like he was swimming underwater where Tsuyo was the only light in this abyss. Well, her and one other person that hasn’t moved or made a noise yet. Rin had grown over the year had passed since he gained this ability to like the pale blue flame that is usually faint yet ever present within living creatures. Perhaps it was as much of a curse as it is a gift for it costs him the vitality.
Regardless he ‘saw’ that her foot had shifted with her failed attempt to punch Rin. Rin of course didn't pursue it for that was not his true purpose. He allows his palm to connect against the soil as a small cloud of dirt spreads out from his hand. In doing so his ‘sight’ expanded to one hundred meters with more accuracy. Through it he saw Tsuyo converting her previous attack into a roll using his body as her obstacle. It was through that contact that Rin was able to see her. With it came the elbow of her left arm. Rin had obviously seen it as he half attempted to evade it by shifting his body with the blow’s direction to minimize the damage he should've taken. This was done by simply lowering his body and using his right arm for balance in place of his right leg.
Now she was behind him, and as if to demonstrate not to toy with her Tsuyo snaps her left leg back towards his lower body from the looks of it. Rin was still in his crouching position with his knee just a couple of inches from ground. So his entire body was lower leaving little room to target his leg. Tsuyo standing on the ground was like sending ripples through the air and on the ground. So he's able to see the leg coming at him. Rin minimized his effort simply by leaping up like a frog over that leg attack making it miss.
Rin doesn't have his medium anymore, so he's back to normal sensing as he flips and twists his body around forward so he would land in this meter distance that they have. The landing was pretty solid for the most part as Rin landed nearly straight on his legs with an added slight buckle at the knees for support. His palms opened as his right arm was extended while the left was closer to his person at abdomen level. Not necessarily the gentle fist, but the concept of the palms seem to be used for a defensive purpose. Rin’s feet was spread out while leaning on his left leg to place a root to the ground. His right served for movement related such as evasion and moving forward.
Rin felt like he might have offended Tsuyo by closing his eyes, or rather it was the stupidest thing anyone can ever do. He heard such talk from his own mother and just about everyone else who sparred with him using this ability. Yet it never really seemed to hinder his ability to move, and in fact he seems to perceive more detail than he did before and it was not just the technique to sense. The main reason why Rin closes his eyes is to not confuse his sight with the sensing technique as it limits the ability to accurately sense certain things. The additional light from the sun also gives him a headache than he already has.
Regardless the boy opens his eyes as ordered, though he was wincing from the sun’s light. The sharp pain in his head seemed to increase from the sudden brightness, but Rin made a point to deal with it. Of course by opening his eyes Rin witnesses the wry grin playing at Tsuyo’s lips and responded with Rin’s plea. Rin wasn’t surprised that Tsuyo held a certain grudge about the fact he holds the Uchiha name. It was practically common knowledge among the village that Uchiha, Hyuga, and even Senju have been at odds for a long time now.
Rin raised a brow as he tilted his head slightly to the side. “Well i don’t have the eyes, so i think i’m off to a good start of not being a little bastard Uchiha.” Being the technical mindset at the moment, Rin’s attention never wavered from Tsuyo. Rin didn’t really appear to have much motivation other than himself of proving to someone. Faint signs of scar tissue can barely be seen along his arms that look appear to be stabbing wounds, and now that his shirt is a bit messed up there was a small scar tissue an inch below his collarbone. “At least i tried though. I’m pretty sure if i was just some Uchiha i would’ve given up the moment the odds were stacked too high for me.”
Rin won’t lie that the stance Tsuyo took was foreign to him, but he didn’t let his guard down either as his senses spiked from her concentrating chakra into her right hand. The charge began similar to last time only this time it seemed Tsuyo was in motion to punch him with that right hook of hers. At least according to Rin’s perspective it was, but what his mind sensed from the chakra Rin’s eyes were looking at the left hand and near the waist for signs of a crouch or to even twist. After all last time she did try to punch with the left hand too, so he was wary of Tsuyo. Rin was in the initial stance to shift some of his weight to his front leg to allow him to evade to her right side.
That’s when the snap happened and while Rin caught it by his sight he was barely able to deflect it with his extended right arm. Her body suddenly twisted to both maximize the power and speed behind it only meant that Rin would have been in for a rude awakening had he not swung his right arm. The forearm connected against Tsuyo’s left forearm altering the direction slightly as he continued to move towards her right. Despite his efforts, Tsuyo’s left jab still nicked his cheek that made Rin stagger for a brief moment. Quickly following after that the knee came up to his stomach.
The muscle around his stomach was hard when Tsuyo connected her knee to it, but even so Rin appeared like it hurt twice as much as it should. The boy staggers again backwards as his left hand is immediately placed over his stomach as his quivers from the pain all over his body. Sweat drips from his face, and to be frank Rin won’t be surprised if he keeps going until he passes out from the pain. Again. Fighting through the pain, Rin keeps his stance as he recovers his composure. For at this point anything he does is going to be foiled for deep down Rin knows she is holding back.
It was stressful maintaining this sensing technique, but regardless he keeps it active. Rin sees that Tsuyo has her arms shifted to guard her head and body. To him, there is no room for him to get through. Though once again that aggression he held earlier doesn’t appear to be present and instead is placed with careful observation. Rin doesn’t know how to proceed, or more specifically he knows what she’s capable to an extent and that no matter what he did she would easily counter it. On top of that her eyes are staring at him like a hawk.
‘I could try low, but her dexterity is way too advanced for me to even hope to get her. Plus she can just simply jump over me like before and poof i’m back to square one. I’m not confident that i got swiftly get around her and attack from behind. Mainly because i know for certain she moves faster than me by a long shot.’ Rin thought bitterly to himself as he tries to figure it out, yet fails to do so from the looks of it. He wants to prove to Tsuyo somehow, but in the end Rin feels deep down that all he can do is bark. The frustration of being helpless in any situation is beyond comprehension in Rin’s mind as a surge of chakra flow through his body. In doing so the earth shifted ever so slightly.
‘If only i had some form of element i probably would fair better, but no matter what she can just smack my hand and there goes my jutsu.’ The boy’s train of thinking went through his mind once again. A budding rage was swelling within his bosom from the amount of negativity within his mind. Yet remembering Tsuyo’s words Rin actually converted the pent up rage to add as fuel into his chakra which causes another surge of chakra that was a bit stronger now that briefly shook the earth beneath him. Rin actually smiled as this was probably the stupidest idea ever as he poured a potent amount of strength into his palms.
Rin steps forward as he begins to enter the crouching stance. His right palm at the ready for defending by positioning it around his face and chest as Rin slams his left palm onto the earth beneath Tsuyo to both create a true dust cloud that minimizes visual sight for a brief period of time. The force was even enough to cause the very ground to rumble as the dust cloud engulfs both of them. This was the moment Rin shined as he closed his eyes not using the sight since it was clouded and so were hers. Using his mind's eye, Rin would quickly spin around by both jumping back to standing position and pivoting with his left foot to spin around Tsuyo’s side. At initial to mid spin Rin would rise with an added bounce from the knees to rise up faster and a swift palm thrusting upward at Tsuyo’s stomach which would no doubt be blocked by her arms. Which was fine as he used his strength to push her arms up. This was a ruse of course as Rin would slam his right elbow as he pushed up her blocking arm just enough to expose her stomach where his elbow will land.
Then after he spun around to get at her right blindside, Rin finish this up by using the built up momentum and strength at the end of his spin. Where Rin will slam his left palm onto Tsuyo’s right flank, and as the nature of the palm Rin will attempt to utilise this strength to literally push Tsuyo a good five meters if not ten meters at maximum. If this didn’t work then Rin is all out of ideas as in truth he thought this was the stupidest thing he’s ever done. He’s not even sure if he can even create the dust cloud or not, but at this point it was the only thing he could figure out.

- Activated Techs:
Name: Sensing Technique
Range: Varies by Natural Perception:
Classification: Sensory Ninjutsu
Requirements: Sensory Skill
Description: The Sensing Technique is the basic method of Sensory that is automatically granted once the Sensory Skill is unlocked. Perception determines the potency of the user's ability, extending the range as listed above. The classic use of sensory is almost a passive ability, requiring only that the cost be paid to maintain awareness. There is also a focused variation through which the user can double the range by making physical contact with an object via the hands or fingers. Whichever object is touched is the medium for range extension, meaning that beyond the original range value, only things making contact with the medium can be detected. This medium is almost always the ground.
The medium doesn't need to be the ground, and while using the ability inside a building will transmit one's sensing across all walls, floors, ceilings, and the ground upon which the building stands, there are other structures which may not be tied to the ground. Using this inside a blimp or other aircraft, for example, will extend the user's range over the aircraft, up to the maximum range, which may well cover the entire aircraft. Given that an aircraft isn't making contact with anything, the user's sensory range will be limited to that aircraft.
Drawbacks: Focusing the range forces one to remain in place. Anything not making contact with the medium cannot be sensed with the extended range; this won't help them if they're within the base range, however, as they can still be sensed as normal. The Sensing Technique is not a passive process and will require activation; if the cost is not being paid, the technique is not active. This technique is also required as a prerequisite for most Sensory-related techniques and abilities, excluding only a certain few.
Name: Arhat Fist
Activation Cost: N/A
Upkeep Cost: 3
Requirements: C rank strength w/o taijutsu skill or D rank with the taijutsu skill.
Parent Technique: N/A
Hand Seals: N/A
Description: This style of combat focuses on simple physical attacks such as palm strikes, shoulder thrusts, knee strikes, and punches. The style uses brute strength to achieve its goals, keeping things simple by not attempting extended combination attacks. Instead it uses single attacks or short combinations with power behind them instead of speed, packing enough strength with some users to shatter large rocks. Boosts strength by one tier with the taijutsu skill and by one plus without it.
Weaknesses: The boosts are lowered by -- if the user doesn't have the taijutsu skill. Their speed is also lowered by - if they don't possess the Taijutsu Skill to represent their lack of true effort in mastering their body.
