Well, my first few tactics of throwing things at the tv and swearing a lot didn't work. I started using the dodge and hitting stab armor when she was open. That is the best way of doing it, but you can hit her 2 or 3 times, but then she hits a combo to bring the health points almost level again. Hitting the QTE's is a must. I survived a few of the knee combo moves she does, but if you've got around 4-5 health points and you miss a QTE, she hits that Sukura Viva Festival move that ends it flat out. I found dodging, hitting stab armor, but throwing in the odd single kick after when her back is still turned got the health down faster and less QTE's to fail.


I gotta be honest, I'm not entirely sure the Duck Racing is worth the frustration of beating Izumi, but that feeling of finally beating her is great. I would feel bad that she was upset, but I saw too much of the smug Izumi mocking me after fights. I feel Ryo should've gone the full Ric Flair WOOOOing around the room, elbow dropping his jacket. That's how I felt  :)
