about

You have endured the trials of intense and harsh practice for a long time. You feel your body growing, evolving, becoming ever so stronger. But how strong are you? Your sensei and renowned martial artist Ryu will now put you to the test.

lyrics

Be prepared to face me,
I will not hold back
Prove yourself
Give all you have without regret
You may find what you're looking for

Your journey has just begun,
Do your best!
Withstand my dragon punches
This is no time to rest.
Nor is it time to jest.
You may find what you're looking for if you...

Get up and fight me again.
I see you have some fight left in you!
Come and face me again,
Don't falter,
Find the strength to carry on!

You must not be afraid
Get yourself into the fray
There is no other way
Make no mistake
There is no easy path for you to take
Because the truth lies in the heart of battle!

Understand you have a long way to go
Power alone is not enough.
Fill your fists with passion and refined aggression.
You will find what you're looking for.

Listen well to the words I pass along to you.
Do not fight for victory,
Fight only to improve yourself.
And victory will come.

You must not be afraid
Get yourself into the fray
There is no other way
Make no mistake
There is no easy path for you to take
Because the truth lies in the heart of battle!

In the heart of battle!

Oh!
