It was early morning and Seihu was training inside his home, mainly to keep watch over his Matoran guest, Yahru.
Seihu started off by training with the mechanical dummies that he made in his Matoran days, then moving on to his unarmed forms.
In the middle of that time, Yahru stretched and yawned as he woke up from the mat, and opened Seihu’s room door to see where Seihu was.
Yahru watched Seihu perform his moves, and was fascinated by the sight.
Seihu noticed that Yahru was watching him and mimicking some of his moves.
“Up already?” asked Seihu “You seem energetic.”
“Not as energetic as you.” Yahru commented, “What is that called?”
“I was just doing some of my morning exercises” said Seihu.
“Well, while I have the energy, I would like to do some myself” Yahru suggested.
Seihu was taken aback by his visitor’s request
“It’s not that easy,” Seihu responded, “If you want something easy, then this is not for you”
“Please teach me” Yahru calmly demanded.
“Well see” Seihu said
“Now like I promised, it’s time for you to get to know the city. I have made an itinerary for you last night and got some fellow Matoran to help you learn some of the basics”, Seihu said. “Then I will train you”
Seihu handed Yahru a backpack with a map of Metru Nui with a special mark on Seihu’s home, a schedule made by Seihu himself, and a pencil and notebook. Yahru was also tasked with going to each different Metru within 6 months, and was expected to learn the same skills and knowledge that Seihu learned.
“I won’t let you down, Master Seihu”, Yahru vowed as he got his backpack.
So the routine Seihu made went as follows, first thing in the morning, Yahru and Seihu did some physical fitness like running, then Yahru went to Ga-Metru for swimming practice and for school, next he went to Onu-Metru to learn the archives and mining, then he was to go to Le-Metru for learning how to ride vehicles and perform acrobatic feats. The following day Seihu said Yahru was to go to Ko-Metru for studying scrolls and prophesies as an intern and to balance on ice poles, Po-Metru for carving and building, and Ta-Metru for helping forge tools. Yahru also did some odd jobs around Metru Nui like cleaning windows and vehicles
After that six month period, Seihu was meditating near the Protodermis falls when Yahru walked in panting.
“So how has these months been?”
Yahru sighed, “It was a lot of work, Seihu”.
“But it was worth it wasn’t it?”
“I guess, so what was the type of exercise that you were doing, if you don’t mind me asking”, Yahru asked.
Seihu thought it was time to show Yahru.
“Yahru” Seihu stood up, “Do the window wiping motion”
Yahru raised his eyelid, “Excuse me?”
Yahru proceeded to do the window wiping motion with his arms.
“Do it again”.
Seihu moved Yahru’s arms so that it was in a slightly different pose.
"Now hold that position and pretend my fist is a spot on the wall." Seihu instructed.
Seihu proceeded to punch Yahru only for Yahru to use the wiping motion to swat Seihu’s fist away
Seihu moved back,
Now do show me how you used the hammer and chisel in Po-Metru,
Yahru then did the motion of using a hammer and chisel
“Don’t use the hand used for the hammer” Seihu instructed. “Now, when my arm comes down on you, pretend like you are chiseling one of the Sculptures in the Fields.”
“Chisel up!” Seihu yelled as he did a chopping motion to Yahru.
Yahru used his “chisel” elbow to block Seihu’s forearm.
“Now show me how you swim” Seihu commanded.
Yahru moved his arms in a swimming motion
Seihu then made Yahru do it a little slower before he made clear the established motion. To the point here Yahru brought his hand down while turning his hips.
"Use that motion" Seihu said.
Seihu proceeded to kick Yahru, but Yahru used his swimming motions to block the kicks.
Finally Seihu did a little combo of kicks, punches, and strikes as Yahru used all of those blocking motions.
Seihu walked back.
“Good, let’s bow”.
Seihu bowed to Yahru and vice versa.
After they rose up, Seihu took note of the intrigue on Yahru's questioning face.
Seihu came up to Yahru and said, “we will practice more tomorrow”,
He patted Yahru’s shoulder. “Get some rest, Yahru”
Yahru went back to his room and so did Seihu.
Seihu walked off whispering to himself, “He’ll get it soon”.
That was the moment Seihu officially started to train Yahru.
