Tien had been searching high and low, but he couldn't find any trace of them. Two of his students, Sawe and Zaru, had gone and wandered off without handling their chores for the day. That was like them. They were always off trying to go on some kind of adventure that conveniently lined up for when they were meant to be doing work, instead. He supposed he couldn't entirely hold it against them; he knew this work was menial and completely un-enthralling, but that was why he tried to rotate it, why everyone had to do it so no one person was doing it more than the others. Even he did it when it was his turn, and he could've been expected to make himself exempt from doing such a thing, as the one bestowing all the teaching. But that wouldn't have been fair to his students, nor to the effort and sacrifice they put forward in order to learn from him. He would've seen it as disrespectful, actually, to see and treat them that way. Like he was exploiting them for use as cheap labour, something like that. Which brought him back to why he was originally searching in the first place; where were Sawe and Zaru? They had to have sneaked off somewhere in particular, and interrogating Kela after he got back wasn't giving him any answers, though he was pretty sure she knew. He sighed, considering how he was going to deal with this. Chiaotzu would've told him to let them get away with it, and he was tempted to. Still though, he needed someone to handle the gutters, and if they weren't going to do it, he could always get the person who was protecting them so vehemently to do it. He almost felt a little bad doing that, like he was throwing Kela into the hole for their actions, but she was the one who was insisting on not telling them where he'd gone. Ah, whatever. He'd just do it himself later on, rather than worry about all of this. If they had snuck off like that and Kela really refused to tell him, then it was probably at least somewhat important, right? That, or they had gone off for a good reason, off to do something they saw as being big heroes, no doubt. That was all Sawe ever wanted to be - a big hero. In a way, he reminded Tien of a younger Yamcha, or...well, always how Yamcha was, actually. He hadn't really matured with his age, so much. Always wanting to be the big hero, get the girl, the glory, all of it. He couldn't really fault it so much; Sawe viewed these abilities, the techniques he'd been taught as borderline superpowers, something he was obligated to help people with. There were worse views to have on his situation, Tien supposed.

Zaru was a whole other kettle of fish, as the saying goes. He, in some ways, tried to emulate the old martial arts masters, being a student of history who'd read into the Mutaito school from all those years ago. That was far before even Tien's time, back when Roshi and Shen were young. He couldn't even imagine them being young in his mind's eye, no pun intended. In his head, they had always been as old as they were, especially since Shen had not been ageing well even before he found and took in Tien and Chiaotzu. Tao was always much more youthful looking, but Tien was pretty sure that he was the younger brother, so in a way it made sense. Still, Zaru often got irritated by Sawe but stuck with him anyway, always using the excuse that he was trying to make sure the bigger man didn't do anything stupid. Tien could see through it quite easily; he wanted to be a hero and do right by people just as much as Sawe did, but his own pride and desire to not be seen as some kind of impulsive knucklehead held him back from admitting it. Tien valued his students more because of their attitudes toward other people, that they not only treated them with respect, but desired to help them wherever they could. Though it did cut into sparring time when they snuck off like this, as well. Now that he thought about it, sparring did sound good, but most of the students were either asleep or just about to be, despite the fact that he was wide awake. He didn't even consider waking them up or preventing them from sleeping; if he wanted them to be able to more properly understand and learn what he was teaching them, they needed to have all of their energy and be able to fully focus. So what else could he use? An idea popped into Tien's mind as he went to one of the storage rooms of the dojo, remembering something he'd picked up a while ago. It was night here on Earth, but perhaps on Namek, it was in the day? He hadn't ever been to Namek, but he was almost sure the orbit of the world operated differently, and he wasn't actually sure now that Namek had night at all. The only time he'd seen it go dark was when the sky was filled with the smog and debris from the fight between Frieza and Goku, and even then, that was just over the timeline of events of everyone travelling to Namek to use their Dragon Balls. Perhaps this would work just fine, then.

Tien took the small crystal, carrying it out with him to the outer rear courtyard of the Dojo, where the sparring arena was. It wasn't huge, but sizeable enough for almost any bout that wasn't going to be destroying mountains just with the shockwaves that blows were causing; most of his students weren't quite at such a level yet, which he wasn't going to hold against them. He'd reinforced the school's building itself, but no doubt there'd be complaints if some of the most beautiful parts of the view from Mount Paozu suddenly collapsed in on themselves because some martial artists decided to punch each other. Tien walked to one end of the sparring arena, holding out the crystal in his hand as it began to glow and react to his Ki; the triclops focused, his mind casting to Namek. He wasn't sure if it would seek out anyone that he knew there or even just a random Namekian, but they were warrior people too, so either would be fine. As long as this whole thing wasn't too confusing to explain, that was. He kept his focus on Namek as the Astral Crystal cast a small beam of light towards the other corner of the arena, trying to create a humanoid figure, though Tien couldn't tell who or what it was, just yet.

It was true that night never really came to Namek, even New Namek had two suns like the previous one. Probably part of the reason that King Kai had chosen the place given it's obvious similarity to the original planet, statistics always stated that people had doppelgangers so why couldn't planets. But he'd already been done for the day at chronologically speaking however he didn't get a lot of chance to train because of the constant need of some of the Namekian citizens or some of the younger Namekians wanting to hear stories of adventure and fighting. It was a change of pace for Gohan to be considered something of a hero here on Namek, given that most didn't even know of their existence back home despite the fact they'd saved the world more then half a dozen of times. He was just sitting on a bed that had been provided for him and a room to go with it, nothing special but it was away from people and would allow him to sleep and rest when needed too.

So Gohan had decided to calm his nerves and meditate a little, maybe do some mind or ki training while he waited to get a little more exhausted. He didn't need much rest at the moment as he'd done little to need it, most of what he did today was barely considered an issue to the young half saiyan. As he was coming to a state of clear thoughts he was hit by a wave of some thought and his spirit was grabbed, bringing him to some place else he was uncertain of. He opened his astral eyes to of all people Tien Shinhan, he smiled and waved "Hey Tien, missing us already" joked Gohan as he looked around him and saw that he was in an arena of sorts. His smile changed from a smile to a smirk "Oh, so this is a sparring match is it. I didn't get the chance to train today, so this will be good" coined Gohan as he readied himself and got into a defensive stance.

A smirk came across Tien's face as he began to make out the astral figure appearing before him. It was short, certainly not Trunks or Goku, though it definitely resembled the latter very closely. He didn't exactly have to cross of a shortlist to figure out who it was, and Tien was pleased to see Gohan appear. As much as he also enjoyed sparring with Goku, he was more...instinctual, as Saiyans tended to be, and Tien didn't see Goku as someone that he had anyone to teach. He'd had his own master after all, who was still kicking and ready to train with him again whenever he needed it. Gohan was in a bit of a different situation. Tien could never really tell where Piccolo was unless he went actively looking (it wasn't like he'd find much of a conversation, anyway) and he wasn't ever really sure how much Gohan had time to train with his own dad. As much as Goku probably wanted to, he had to be upping the ante for himself, constantly challenging his own limits to try and prepare himself for the Androids to come. It didn't help that there was that whole heart virus to worry about, on top of it. Tien didn't know how Chi-Chi could even handle the stress. Come to think of it, was she even fully aware that Gohan had gone to Namek again? Maybe she did now, but when he first went...maybe not. He had the awful possibility run through his head that she'd come charging to the dojo looking for answers, and as much as Tien understood Goku had his reasons, he wasn't going to lie to his wife about his or his son's whereabouts. Or maybe she really didn't mind. After all, they'd gone before, and Gohan had returned safe, and then Goku..was in space for a while, and didn't come back after how long? Alright, so she probably did mind. It wasn't any of Tien's business anyway, and there wasn't any need for him to stick his nose in. He was sure both the father and son had their own well thought-out (maybe only in Gohan's case) intentions for being there again, even if just to help out the Namekians with settling on their new home. He returned the smile in Gohan's direction as the astral version of him fully formed, and he wondered if Gohan had been asleep when this happened, if he still was. Was it a dream-like state people were in when these crystals called them, or did they just appear to be doing all these actions to nothing, wherever they were? He'd have to look into that, some day. He didn't really know where these crystals came from, other than being pretty sure they were alien, but their powers were very helpful. He'd have to visit their home planet sometime.

"You could say that. I'll have to tag along next time you go on one of these trips." Tien wasn't sure how many they planned on doing or if they were going to make a habit of this, but he still liked the sound of it. Trunks at the very least, was the type to take things seriously, almost all of the time; so there was no doubt some kind of reason for Namek in particular. As intelligent as Gohan was and how well he thought things out, Tien was pretty sure that he could get roped into things by Goku if his father decided to try his best at it. He nodded at Gohan's question, only getting more of a smile decorating his face as he saw the young man's defensive stance. In a way, it reminded him of Piccolo's, but there were subtleties to it, ones that were clearly reminiscient of the Turtle School. Tien knew how dangerous that school of martial arts could be both offensively and in counters, and whatever Piccolo had taught him would no doubt be hard to predict, nevermind his own battle intelligence going into it. Tien assumed a fighting stance as well, watching Gohan carefully as he did so. "We're in the same boat, then. Don't lower your guard - I won't take it easy on you." Like he had to say that, or like he would even have to even think about taking it easy in the first place. Gohan was half a Saiyan, and his father's son at that, nevermind the harsh training that he'd gone through already. It was sometimes hard to see Gohan as the fighter as he was, thanks to his age, but he'd learned from watching him fight to never underestimate him, especially due to his youth. Tien could tell there was a welling power there, a potential even beyond his dad's. Without another word, Tien rushed forward, sweeping his leg low to try and catch Gohan off guard, his rear hand coming forward in a tightly enclosed fist, with Tien attempting a quick jab towards his younger opponent. He wasn't going to be firing off Tribeams in this one, but practice was practice nonetheless; and having an opponent he could finally take things more seriously against would be a refreshing change. As much as he appreciated his students, their progress paled, even his star pupils, in comparison to the Half-Saiyan's. He'd have to nag Goku to help train him more; potential like this shouldn't be wasted.

Gohan was glad for the surprising turn of events, he wasn't sure how this was happening but he definitely had to look into it some time in the future. "You're always welcome to join us Tien" replied Gohan to Tien's comment about wanting to go with them sometime, last time he could go because he was dead during the fight with Nappa and Vegeta. Hence the reason they had gone to Namek in the first place in order to wish those back who'd already been revived using the earth dragonballs, only to have a run in with someone much worse then Nappa and Vegeta. Tien then added he hadn't had any training that day either, which was surprising given Tien's stance on training almost constantly much like PIccolo though he would more often broad then train constantly.

"Wouldn't have it any other way" replied Gohan to Tien's words knowing that he wasn't someone to over look in a fight, being a smart and experienced fighter Tien was someone to look out for when going against. But it wasn't the time for thinking long and hard about things as the fight was starting though a sparring match Gohan really couldn't let his guard down, as Tien came in fast and attempted a low sweep that Gohan jumped to avoid. Barely putting his hands up in time for a block as Tien attempted a raising punch, possibly using the kick as a distraction for the punch he was attempting.

Being pushed back by the punch, Gohan floated back briefly before using a pillar to bounce off and charge forward with a flying raised punch of his own. The thing was just as he was about to get within reach of Tien, Gohan vanished and instead of appearing behind Tien like most would because he knew Tien would figure that out. Gohan had actually appeared to his right side, aiming an elbow to hit Tien's side followed by an attempt at kneeing the man in the gut hoping to use the time to gain some ground.

Tien was pleased to hear the confidence in Gohan's voice. It didn't feel like that long ago that the boy had been so unsure of himself and his place in the world, anxious at the idea of battle and what could come. Tien hadn't had much time to see his progress for himself other than his time on Namek, mainly because there wasn't much else to do when he was taking a break from his constant training at King Kai's place. Being dead was about as exciting as one could really expect, but at least it helped make you stronger, as odd as that was. There was something changing in Gohan that even he could tell however, even with the distance he seemed to retain from most of his friends. There was a growing confidence in his words and actions, a self-assuredness that he was previously missing. Was he fully confident in himself and his abilities? Maybe not quite yet - after all, he was still a boy, and he would have lessons to learn, things to figure out for himself and other principles he'd have to pick up from those around him. Tien thought back to the time when he was Gohan's age. Things were so much simpler in those times. Earth seemed like the only place there really was, and Tien had never had to even consider the possibility of aliens, or that maybe he was a long-lost relative to some of them. He'd had a hard time as a kid sure, what with the two main figures in his life being harsh and expecting absolute perfection from him at every turn, but that harshness and expectation had helped make him into the man he was. He expected perfection from himself just as they had, and had grown driven far beyond the usual norm for a martial artist. Training and meditation were a constant, if he wasn't busy handling anything from an errand to yet another being deciding they really wanted to attack his planet in particular. He'd become an adept thinker and strategist not only in combat but in general when it came to the management of people, especially his own students. As much as he still to this day hadn't truly forgiven Shen and Tao, he would never discount or undermine the lessons they'd taught him, everything that they'd done for him and given him, even if they themselves didn't realize he felt that way. Shen at least, saw him as nothing more than a traitor for even associating with members of the Turtle School like he had. These were old feuds though, in a time that was long-gone now. Before Gohan had even existed as a possibility in his parents' minds.

Things were more complicated for Gohan's life. He was the son of a hero and the student of a demon, who had to deal with threats on a galactic scale, who seemed to thrive on death and wanted nothing more than to destroy his world and everyone in it. That was a lot for a kid to be dealing with no matter who they were, nevermind one who had already been through so much already. The death of his father at the hands of his own uncle, then Piccolo's death against Nappa. Tien sometimes had thoughts back to that day, what he could've done differently, if he should have prioritized protecting Gohan, a young boy with no idea where he was, over avenging his friend who was already dead by his own choice, an experienced and veteran warrior and martial artist who had made a conscious decision and sacrifice. These doubts were the kind of thing he wanted to avoid for his students; he wanted to teach them to walk their own path with confidence and conviction, something he was seeing that was growing within Gohan. In a way, he was almost proud despite having really no part in that development. It was just seeing that change, that progress in such a young fighter. He was probably hundreds of times more powerful than Tien had been at his age. He couldn't even imagine the hero he would grow to be. He was equally impressed at his opponent's quick reactions to his own strikes, with Gohan using the momentum to bounce of a pillar and come back towards him. He had expected the Half-Saiyan to appear behind him as Gohan predicted, but was not expecting the elbow in his side. How old was he meant to be? Ten? Younger? His elbow felt like a sledgehammer being driven into Tien's body, with a muscular strength he couldn't expect from some of the beefiest humans on the planet. He spoke out loud as his hand came up, catching and blocking the knee. "Good! Keep your opponent on his toes, don't be predictable!" He'd have to be the same. He had underestimated Gohan without realizing it, and he had been punished for it. He kept the knee still in place, leaning to the side as he kicked out towards Gohan's abdomen, trying to send him flying back as he rapidly caught up, and actually went to slide under him whether or not he was actually sent back by it, kicking upwards to try and send him hurtling into the air. He was enjoying the competition of it; in a way, it reminded him of the 22nd World Tournament match. A smaller but just as strong opponent, one who he respected the power of.

Gohan had landed the elbow attack on Tien but his following up attack hadn't been as successful, even having Tien to try and impart knowledge onto Gohan while then attacking himself. Gohan took the hit and went up into the sky, bracing himself for the following up attack which sent Gohan further up into the air. With the freedom of the air, Gohan did something that Tien had suggested. Don't be predictable, so Gohan prepared the pose of a kamamaha even sounding out the word.

Looking like he was about to actually pull off the move. Then disappearing to a low stance behind Tien, he knew he couldn't use the actual kamamaha on Tien as it might kill him which he wouldn't ever do. But he could switch it to a different attack, though the Masenko might also be problematic and so he'd instead sent off a normal energy blast.

Aimed at Tien's back and wasn't really meant to much besides possibly stagger Tien, this would give Gohan time to make a follow up of his own and starter with a barrage of punches into Tien. Whether he turned around or not, aiming for the mid to high regions of the man's body though he also threw in a few lower kicks to make things that much more unpredictable.

Tien had gotten up to his feet by the time he'd started to send Gohan up into the air; he noticed something about his stance that was familiar. A technique that had been used on him quite a few times and that he'd actually done once himself. Now that he considered it, he hadn't ever tried the technique again. As he watched Gohan's form, he could tell that although it wasn't say, with the mastery that someone like Master Roshi or Krillin displayed, it was no doubt just as effective as Goku's - Tien was finding through his watching of the Son family at least, that Saiyans worked far differently than humans mainly through how they used Ki and how it was most effective. For a human, it required technique, practice, focus and discipline to hone and perfect a technique to the highest level it could be. Watching Roshi pull off a Kamehameha was like watching a painter make art in what complete and utter control he had over his energy. Tien had noticed that Goku, Vegeta and even Gohan and Trunks, it was different. Goku and Vegeta focused on pure, unfiltered emotion, their rage, sorrow, joy and everything else spilling out into the way they fought. Tien was almost positive that if two Saiyans were to enter into combat, they would be able to communicate through their fists alone, without a word being exchanged, and would understand each other's viewpoint perfectly, even if they were to arrogantly dismiss it in the way that someone like Vegeta would. For Gohan and Trunks, there was almost this perfect balance that they seemed to maintain; while they displayed the ability to learn and perfect a technique, their emotions and feelings carried just as much into their power as that of their Saiyan fathers. At the same time, both of them had no doubt gone through all sorts of traumas from a young age. Although Gohan's were more obvious to him, he didn't have any doubts regarding the idea that Trunks had been through similar hardships. A man fighting on his own at the end of the world, all of the fighters of his planet being killed when he was just barely a toddler. He must have been striving on his own for so long - Vegeta could only hope to be half as tenacious as his son, and Goku could only hope to be half as talented as his.

Tien's thoughts had wandered again, and Gohan still displayed that ability to learn on the fly, the adaptability that most fighters didn't have far into adulthood. Even sounding out the words Kamehameha, Tien was naturally expecting the attack to come flying down towards him in a bright blue beam - he was fully prepared to deal with it; after all, he'd diffused, reflected and even copied the technique before after only seeing it twice, so he wasn't too worried about it. Despite that, he was still caught off-guard when Gohan appeared behind him, preparing an energy blast to stun him. Tien barely had time to turn around, getting his arms up just in time to block the blast from hitting him square in the chest; the sleeves of his robes were burned off from the middle of the wrist, and it forced him back a few steps. What forced him back even more was the pressure that the younger fighter started putting him under as Gohan opened with the barrage of punches. Tien remained focus and dodged, diverted, parried, mixing up his defensive strategy as much as Gohan did so for his offensive. He tried to mix in attacks of his own within the flurry of fists, aiming strikes for the area of Gohan's chest and face. He could almost smile at the improvement the half-Saiyan was showing even in just this fight alone. It was a genuinely impressive level of talent, that he hadn't really seen before, not even in Goku at that age. The low kicks were themselves an issue, and that was something that gave him pause, as well. "Good! Keep using your size against me!" For now, that would be a tool he'd have to use, being a younger fighter that was going to be up against combat veterans, used to fighting other adults at full size. It was an advantage he had that many wouldn't realize, and was something any shorter fighter, like Krillin or Chiaotzu always used to their own advantage. With the gifts Gohan had on top of that, using the circumstances against his opponent would make him a near-unstoppable force, at this rate. One kick caught him, forcing him to stumble to the side and opening him up. Knowing Gohan would likely take the opportunity to attack, Tien suddenly hopped up, using his Ki to power his momentum as he suddenly spun, aiming a kick towards the side of Gohan's head and trying to catch him with the full force of it. Knowing that Saiyans, even half-Saiyans were an impulsive bunch, they would usually jump right for an opportunity past a foe's guard, like a shark smelling blood. Gohan had natural advantages, but so did he. They'd both have to practice dealing with enemies who had those.

His attack had landed but wasn't as effective as he would've liked it to be but it gave him a chance to get that barrage in but not enough as Tien kept up with it and letting in his own set of attacks as well. Barely any of his attacks had made the hit, only having his lower kicks make their mark. One stumbled the bald man ever so slightly but Gohan wasn't as silly as some might think, taking every opportunity was useful but also predictable. As Tien quickly righted himself and attempted a Ki powered retaliation, Gohan smiled "Heh" was all he said as Gohan hovered above the ground slightly.

And as the ki powered kick came his way, Gohan had actually moved his body within the air and around the kick itself having felt the ki power behind it. Gohan evaded the initial damage the attack would do and floated above the leg, attempting to grab it and use his Saiyan strength and the leverage he had. In order to throw Tien, using his leg as the targeting point.

If he succeeded then he'd follow up with a few choice energy blasts, aimed at and around Tien. They weren't all that damaging but would kick up enough dirt and dust to give Gohan a bit of cover. Using said cover, Gohan would hide his ki a little but not before letting a ball of ki float aimlessly in his last position. He'd then take low level but fast flight and use the kicked up dust to attempt fast flying strikes from a couple of different angles before breaking off again.

Tien only wished he'd asked for this sparring match earlier - it wasn't just Gohan who was learning from it, either. He was always trying to improve himself, not only as a martial artist but as a teacher, and this was just one way to do it; he was up against someone who you'd assume to be much less experienced, even if he and Gohan had actually been in about an equal amount of life-threatening situations. Thankfully, only one of them had actually ever died as a result of one of those. Still, appearances were easily deceiving, especially in the case of a boy who looked like just a very muscular ten year old, but in fact had more strength than probably the most 20 powerful non-Ki using humans combined. His ability to predict, move and weave couldn't be understated; something that was a clear sign of Piccolo's training. The Namekian was a capable and strategic fighter who preferred to hang back and understand his opponents before rushing in like a madman, unless Gohan's safety was involved, of course. It reflected in his student, who had an ability to evade unlike many other fighters that Tien had encountered; his size and overall power obviously factored into it, but there was a foundation that had to be laid before you could create or become a fighter at this level. Gohan's reactions and reflexes were of some of the highest standards that he'd seen in a long time now, and he had to focus and think quickly about what movements and strategies would work best against an opponent this capable. He wasn't going to catch him off-guard, that much was obvious. He had to be more creative than that if he wanted to break through the guard of an opponent like this, and if he wanted to get in any real solid hits on him. Unfortunately, thinking was the least of his issues as he felt the grip on his leg. Well, that wasn't ideal. It wasn't ideal for him as he was thrown through the air either, towards the other end of the arena as he tried to right himself. He had been too focused on dealing with Gohan's agility and speed that he'd almost forgotten about his Saiyan strength. Something else to work on; always be aware of all your opponent's advantages. The most dangerous one is the one that isn't there, because it just means you can't see it. What he could see, or at least feel was the energy blasts coming towards him.

Tien flipped over backwards and landing on his feet, skidding across the ground as he did so and righted himself properly, forming into a defensive stance as the blasts came screeching towards him. Tien furrowed his brow and his eyes narrowed, Ki charging through his hand as it flattened out. He began to bat left and right, deflecting the blasts as they came towards him, using it to try and relieve the pressure being put upon him. Suddenly, his sense picked up something else. It was Gohan, but there was two, both with less power than he'd remembered from seconds ago. It was either multi-form, which he wasn't sure Gohan knew, or - suddenly, dust kicked up and headed towards him with a blur within it. Tien had little time to move, and instead focused on an idea. His aura flared up, surrounding him as small arcs of lightning and electrical power shot off of him and surrounded his entire form. Tien readied himself, knowing that Gohan would come in for an attack any time now. He couldn't block the first strike, feeling it hit him hard, before his hand manage to catch and parry the second. Even still, physical contact with him was intended to be a shock, stunning for an opponent. Tien focused as he caught the attack, using the opening he had to put the pressure on his opponent, to try and place him on the back foot. He came rushing forward with a barrage and flurry of strikes. They were mixed and odd, including crane strikes and some that Tien had actually invented himself as flowing sequences, using them as part of the basis for his school. Even then, the attacks were still likely to cause shock and a burning pain; thankfully, Gohan wasn't here in physical form, so he didn't have to worry too much about causing him injury. Not that he really would, anyway; the boy was a Saiyan, at least halfway so and they were a resilient bunch. Nevermind the fact that even if he did get really hurt, it would only make him more powerful. Come to think of it, it would explain why Goku and Vegeta's training usually involved working themselves half to death. It just increased their power exponentially when they did that. Hmph. Some people had all the genetic luck, didn't they? Not that he minded too much; he always knew surpassing Goku would be a challenge, so he couldn't be surprised at talents like that now, not from him or his son.

Gohan had made the throw which sent Tien across the arena but he was able to right himself slightly before hitting the ground which was unfortunate. But it still made him focus more on that then what was coming next as he started reacting to the blasts, allowing for Gohan's attempt at clouding the field to get started. Followed by his strikes afterwards though he landed the first hit, the second one was blocked and third was parried. Tien followed this up with a barrage of random attacks, it took Gohan back to part blocking and part retaliating in kind. Locking them into a back and forth of trading blows, Gohan was getting the brunt of the attacks from Tien. As he seemed to be tossing in strikes Gohan didn't know of, probably from his school of martial arts. And since Gohan is more based around Piccolo's and his father's styles, he didn't know much about Tien's style outside of what little he's seen of him in action.

It was getting hard to keep things going as he wasn't fairing as well as he'd like but in the heat of things, Gohan had forgotten that he'd powered down a little to play his little ploy. So without even a look on his face, Gohan powered up which quickly blasted his aura around his person. He was hoping to push Tien away from him if only for a brief time, this would give him time to think up some sort of counter attack or way of going back into the fight. At the very least it could give him a slight breather as well, it was a spar but Tien wasn't holding back and that was good for training. For both of them, which was the goal of today or make that tonight's little sparring match.

"Masenko" expressed Gohan as he took a little height off of the ground and put his hands above his head, building up the beam in his hands and letting it off towards Tien. He figured that Tien should be able to take the hit now that he'd gotten a taste of just how strong he'd gotten, aiming the beam right at Tien's mid section. However Gohan wasn't just doing a simple masenko, he was prepared to try and control the beam if it didn't hit it's target first go around.
