The third phase almost made me want to install a trainer.
First two I got gud at with ichi double. To chip damage wait for him to do a swing or slice or heavy bow, then quick circle behind him a double on his ***. Once he is half way you can break his posture fast by jumping on his head a ichi double on the way down. Back off each time in case he tries the grab. But swing behind double and jump double with take out the first two phases.
The third phase I wasted so much time trying the firecrackers and mikiri counters. Just get the first mikiri as it’s very easy then put pressure on and circle behind on any attacks. If you can reverse the lighting it goes fast but I can only get one if I’m lucky. I just jump and avoid it the pressure him. If you can get a couple ichi doubles on him he goes down in 30 seconds.
This fight was the most annoy fight so far. I’m glad I’m done with it.
