Horoshi enters this area to find that most of the monks from many generations are fighting each other in sparring matches or training exercises.
Most are using weapons that he has not seen before while others use simple bo staffs. He watches a few as each strike and parry with man-catchers and bo staff. It seems as if the weapons of choice here are long staff like weapons and battle is fierce from both sides.
When he is noticed, the usher Horoshi to a class where everyone is doing exercises and stretches. Most of it is simple kata style so he joins doing his best to follow with each of the other students.
He is than shown to a quiet area where he is forced to meditate in silence. Before he begins this, the instructor tells him that Sound style is not a hand sign technique but a mind one and that in order to accomplish such feats as he wishes to do, his mind would need to be stronger.
Horoshi sits now focusing his mind on the power of sound waves as he is instructed. His mind goes blank as his eyes shut and is filled with the natural surroundings of the area. His breathing slows down and he goes into a calm state.
At that point, he focuses on the sounds of the wind and of the trees and even the sounds of the other monks training. Finding it difficult to focus on his task, Horoshi spends the remainder of this day in meditation and still trying to concentrate on the sounds alone as he was told to do so.
