Mini-Bio In the middle of his match against Rokkaku's Saeki Kojirou, Kai mercilessly directed a shot at Ojii, sending the old man to the hospital, after Ojii provided Saeki with his insights on Higa's trademark technique, the Shukuchihou. Armed with this new knowledge, Saeki proved to be a greater challenge than his Rokkaku teammates, but Kai ultimately emerged victorious. Kai's next opponent was Seigaku's doubles specialist, Kikumaru Eiji. Taking a page from Saeki's demonstration, Kikumaru aimed his shots to Kai's right and left corners, sealing off the Shukuchihou, which Kai can only perform with a linear front-back movement. Although he is ambidextrous, Kai is predominantly a backward left-hander. His reverse grip allows him to delay the timing of his shots. Thus, Kai was able to read Kikumaru's movements and leveled the match, but Kikumaru benefited from a little assistance from the net.
Technique Shukuchihou - A martial arts-based technique that gives the impression Kai is able to approach the net or baseline in 1 step.
Viking Horn - A backwards grip technique that allows Kai to delay making contact with the ball.
