After a royal smack-down, Anthony vows to get his revenge and seeks the help of the mysterious Master Kimura (Kensaku Watanabe), the man responsible for teaching Quino his formidable fighting skills before he turned to a life of crime, Anthony is soon under Kimura’s tutorage and en route to mastering the art of the Dragon Blow!
