Defeating Yasuhira

Switch to Stone stance for this duel and focus on parrying Yasuhira. The best time to do so is when he opens up with his downward slash. Deflect the attack and follow up with three strikes before waiting it out again.

Yasuhira’s most dangerous move is an unblockable side slash that comes out fairly quickly. He tends to use it at mid to long range, so try to stay close to him during the duel. Alternatively, you can position yourself a good distance away from him to give you more time to react to the move. Dodge to the side to the avoid it and follow up with a few good hits (moving backwards will still get you clipped because of its range). Yasuhira will also sheathe his sword to perform another unblockable move in the form of an advancing slash. Watch for the tell and dodge it before retaliating with your own strikes.
