Name: Dance of the Willow
Resource Cost: 60CP, 60Stam
Description: The first of the five dances. To perform this dance, the user grows several long bone blades from their body for use as weapons. There isn't any set form for the Dance of the Willow. Just like a willow that is shaken by the wind, the opponents attacks are simply parried and countered. Uncharacteristic of a willow, the hardened bones puncture and damage the opponents body.
Though the user primarily uses two blades grown from the palms of their hands, they also use several secondary bones grown from their elbows, knees, and shoulders. This dance form is incredibly acrobatic, using spins, charges, and long sweeping slashes to make the strikes more effective and to evade opponents' counter strikes. The user can also extend their bones to attack the opponents without having to adjust their own movement.
Effects: Bone blades appear around joints and palms to pierce and slash foes.
Requirements: Shikotsumyaku, S Taijutsu
