"He drew his three-foot sword, held his left arm above his head, galloped into the middle of the milling enemy, struck down three men, and stopped his horse at the water's edge to await the coming of other warriors.
Thereupon a monk kicked over the shield in front of him and sprang forward, whirling his short halberd like a water wheel; Kaijitsu of Harima. Kaito received him with his left arm and struck at him with his right arm, thinking to cleave his helmet-bowl; but the glancing sword struck down lightly from Kaijitsu's shoulder-plate to the cross-stitching at the bottom of his armor. Again, Kaito struck mightily, yet his left foot broke through its stirrup, so that he was like to fall down from his horse. As he straightened his body, Kaijitsu thrust up his halberd, and twice and thrice drove its tip rapidly into his helmet. And Kaito fell from off his horse headfirst, pierced cleanly through the glottis."
