Sekiro Posture System
The Posture Gauge is shown at the top and bottom of the screen. The enemy’s Posture Gauge is at the top, under their HP bar, while the player’s is at the bottom.
When an enemy’s Posture Gauge is full, it will break and allow the player to perform a Shinobi Deathblow to take them down.
Posture Recovery Methods
Your posture recovers automatically over time, as does your enemy’s. The less HP you have, the more time it takes to recover posture. Even with broken posture, you can still perform evasive actions to avoid an enemy’s follow-up attack.

Deflect and Counter
Performing a successful deflection against an enemy’s attack allows you to quickly damage their Posture. In addition, you can efficiently stack Posture damage by quickly attacking enemies after you deflect their attacks.
Deflecting enemy attacks requires you to properly time the guard button (L1) at a frame during the attack animation. You won’t be able to successful deflect attacks by mashing the L1 button.
