Enemy Description

 Tsukahara Bokuden was one of the master swordsman of the Sengoku period, and the founder of the Kashima Shinto style. Born into the house of a Shinto priest, he learned the way if the sword from his father and adoptive father, and eventually left his home as a youth to perfect his skills. He gained great fame in the capital as he defeated numerous renowned swordsmen. With each victory, the number of his disciples grew, and it was said he could be seen with over eighty followers as he made his way throughout the land.

Bokuden was responsible for teaching swordsmanship to the Governor of Ise Province, Kitabatatake Tomonori, and the shogun, Ashikaga Yoshiteru, to whom he passed on the secrets his ‘Single Tachi’ style. Despite spending a great deal of his life in duels and battles, it is said that Bokuden has never once been wounded by a blade.

Despite countless challenges Bokuden remains undefeated. Now, while he wished to return to his hometown to live out his final years in peace, as one born into the household of a Shinto priest, he cannot rest easy as the horrors of war feed the rampant surge of yokai being brought into the world.

      I find it a little bit unfair that if he gets a spot on the boss-list the other dojo masters should to. To begin eith I don’t even look at these guys as bosses since they don’t have any unique abilities. The only thing for which you can technically call them bosses is because of that health-bar at the bottom of the screen. And lets be honest, they fight like just another npc.

        I just used the mid stance for switchscyth and quick attacks, then dodged back for a second recovering. Felt like I cheesed it really, as by the time he got close, I hit him before he could combo.

          Obnoxious! I beat him with kusarigama by parrying in mid stance then immediately switching to high and hitting him with the full quick attack combo for about 20% damage. Once I had him below half health I ran around like a little ***** and hit with high triangle long range attack until he was dead.
