Gouji is first seen in the dojo, stating to himself that Judo is the real martial art of combat, and decided to use the original techniques, that made it so deadly in the first place. Gouji arrives at the soccer field and Kiichi arrives, ready to fight. Kiichi then remembers his father's words, stating that because he was forced into fasting, he could reach into his five senses better. Kiichi, after finishing warming, then charges at Gouji, and begins by using his swirling axe kick, and then rushes Gouji, however Gouji is able to block the rush without much problem. Gouji had waited until Kiichi had stopped his rush, to try and grab him, but Kiichi was able to hit Gouji, able to cause Gouji to fall on his knees.
