Chapter 170 - A Slight Breeze
Pickle the one who was knocked away receives Hanayama's Praise? What is the identity of the Power Hanayama speaks of?
Baki: Just what I would expect from the strongest of the Cretaceous period.
Tokugawa: The one who threw was Baki.
Tokugawa: Why are you complimenting Pickle the one who got throw?
Hanayama: I don't understand the complex stuff ... but
Hanayama: There is one thing I do understand.
Hanayama: Power which comes forth, In proportion to that advancing power
Hanayama: The weaker that power is to force from the sides.
Hanayama: When someone gets shot
Hanayama: The bullet enters through the stomach
Hanayama: But comes out through the sides and shoulders
Hanayama: Within the soft insides of a person, the speeding bullet is being influenced by the minor collisions.
Hanayama: Whether it's skin or soft plants. Given the right conditions a single leaf can change the direction of a bullet.
Retsu: That is a bullet, the characteristics of a bullet alone.
Retsu: That's why with such a soft wave of the hand Pickle flew away so high.
Retsu: That is what Hanayama spoke of.
Retsu: Upon hearing his words, I recalled a certain fight.
America 1964 Miami Florida
Pro Boxing World Heavy Weight Championship match
Sony Liston Vs Cassius Clay
Clay parries Listons right hand straight.
As a result Listons right shoulder takes brutal damage.
Retsu: "Clay's parrying was just too fierce", Is what specialist who were watching said.
Retsu: But that's mistake.
Retsu: In truth, the one should who should receive praise is Liston for his fists incredible hydraulic power. So fierce that something like a small parry could dislocate his shoulder.
--whew finally empty--
Baki: How's that ...
Baki: I barely managed to mark all 8 spots.
Baki: While you were cowering up there ...
Baki: I made it my territory.
Tokugawa: What a thing to do.
Retsu: I see ...
Hanayama: Haha ...
Baki: That's enough already, with the tricks and sleight of hand.
Baki: With the T-Rex and Triceratops, I took it a little too far.
Baki: Returning to my original intentions.
Baki: As two homosapiens.
Baki: As two humans, let's fight.
Baki: I wanted to do it once ...
Retsu: Stupid, right?
A frontal assault.
