They are inside a temple. They look at the board, it says Jan must go against Gorrie in a test of heart, Ran with Michelle Peng in technique and Retsu versus Pyon in body. They surprised who they must oppose, at each of their's weaknesses. Gorrie challenges Jan, he must hone his 'heart. ' The competition is to stack coins on top of each other vertically.

Retsu warns him not to blow it but he knocks the coins away. Michelle comes in and announces Gorrie as the winner. Retsu comments that Jan gave up. Rio and Mele berate ShaFu's pupils, saying depending on those losers is pathetic and risking it all on hopelessness.

Retsu and Jan don't face eath other. Michelle asks Ran if she is ready. Ran is but when she sees the Half Pipe on the roof of SCRTC headquarters, she is bewildered. Michelle shows her technique by performing multiple spins.

Retsu begins to shout to her more about technique on her next attempt. He tells her to visualize what Michelle Peng did. Ran thinks back to what Michelle did and concerntrates. She spins in mid-air and ties with Michelle.
Michelle is surprised. The trio celebrate. Ran thanks Retsu. Then two triangles are place on the female's names. ShaFu starts laughing, saying Rio is jealous because his pupils will beat him. ShaFu stands up and faces them. Rio is angry.
It becomes night and it is Retsu versus Pyon in a soccer field. They must grapple to take a bandana off of theother's arm. Retsu transforms. Retsu attempts to use his Technique and seemingly has the best of him, but Bion counters this with Body. Retsu is knocked down and grapples his arm.
He snaps his arm back in place and continues fighting. He is knocked to a pole. Ran tells him to not give up. Retsu tells himself that he must accomplish this, to get back at Rio for insulting his brother. He manages to get to Pyon but he bashes him out of his armor.
Jan calls him an idiot and tells him to abadon his technique. Pyon reaches out for Retsu but he rolls out of the way and tackles his feet but is knocked off. Pyon laughs. Pyon tells him it is over. Retsu struggles to stand up and is knocked into a puddle of water. He gets beat up into the early morning. But Retsu doesn't give up.
Pyon and Retsu strapple each other. Retsu is beneath Pyon. Countering the body, he kicks Pyon into the air. When Pyon comes down, he slams him, taking his bandana. Bloody and beaten, Retsu celebrates and then faints. Pyon congratulates his pupil.
Gorrie comments to Michelle that sometimes young people disappoint you and then a miracle happens and sometimes they really surprise you. The trio sit around in a circle. Retsu surprises them by saying that Jan was the one who helped him. It helped having a friend encourage him. Jan considers the triangle perfect now.
