PATH OF THE FIRE DRAGON

image54

HIRYU

HIRYU (the Fire Dragon) is a fierce creature shrouded in a cloak of smoke and flame. Concerned only with attack, the Fire Dragon spreads its mighty wings to envelop and devour its opponents. Like a powerful eruption, the Fire Dragon’s presence is overwhelming. Many just stare in awe as they are ultimately destroyed. The Fire Dragon’s gift to the Ninja is spiritual domination.

THE FIRE NINJA

Fire is the third level of the Kurai Kotori Ninja’s elemental training. It is here the Fire Ninja must tap into their ability to refine their attacking skills to the highest degree possible. Even defensive moves must be aggressive, damaging the opponents limbs as they are extended outward toward the Ninja. Such ferocity can often cause endurance to be depleted quickly, so the Ninja must not only be explosive, they must ensure their attack combinations are highly effective at the same time as maximizing the use of their vital energy.
