Goji 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. Goji 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 Goji, and begins by using his swirling axe kick, and then rushes Goji, however Goji is able to block the rush without much problem. Goji had waited until Kiichi had stopped his rush, to try and grab him, but Kiichi was able to hit Goji, able to cause Goji to fall on his knees. This is caused by Kiichi hitting Goji in the nose in the beginning, causing him to breathe through the mouth, allowing Kiichi to hit Goji in a more weakened state. Kiichi is then seen using a submission move on Goji.
