As a martial arts expert, Ryu knew that great power came not from muscles but from the mind. As a result, the effects of the Great Shift were of little concern to him. He may now be in the body of a seemingly small and weak schoolgirl, but he was still as capable as ever. He had no qualms about displaying his prowess in public, smashing boards of cinder blocks with his hands or head. He told himself that it wasn't being boastful, it was about giving people hope in the wake of the worldwide bodyswapping phenomenon.
