Help on hangeki

>help hangeki The Samurai, being masters of the sword, are able to take advantage of the gap left in an opponent's defense after having parried a blow from its weapon. The Samurai can use that gap to make a quick thrust with his/her offhand weapon. A retaliation strike will do less damage than a normal in-round hit, but doesn't count against in-round attacks. Hangeki isn't possible with heavy weapons - by the time the Samurai can get a heavy sword into position to take advantage of the opening in his enemy's defense, the opening will already have closed. The heaviest unbalanced weapon a Samurai can perform Hangeki with is 4kg, although a balanced 5kg weapon can also be used.
