Kenichi is easily defeated by Tsukuba despite his heavy training, so he becomes greatly demotivated. With a desire to become stronger and more courageous, Akisame-sensei agrees to finally teach him martial art fighting techniques. Kenichi is put through more rigorous training from the four masters of martial arts. Sakaki-sensei takes a liking to him, so he teaches him a technique that a Sports Karate Style user is vulnerable to. Eventually Kenichi runs into Tsukuba and fights him again, this time he uses the techniques taught to him and he emerges victorious in the battle. Little does he know what troubles he will face as a result of it in the future.
