Then a boat is rowed to the island by a diminutive monk, he introduces himself as Kuririn and he wishes to train under Kame. Kame is initially unenthused by the prospect of another student, but Kuririn hands him a dirty magazine and he changes his mind. Goku tells Kuririn his head looks like a pachinko ball.
Kuririn: "How dare you. All who aspire to master the martial arts shave their heads in order to unfetter their ki!"
Goku jumps down and "rescues" her. She is able to ride the cloud and the three of them return to Kame's house. Once there she looks in her bag to find a lot of money and says she probably robbed a bank again. Kame comes outside and lays eyes on her and is more than happy. Now Goku and Kuririn's training can begin in earnest. She needs a place to lie low, so Kame says she can stay as long as she likes.
Lunch: "Oops! Sorry" I warned you about my sneezes didn't I?"
Kame: "That is what I mean by breaking the human wall! At your age, with training and discipline you should be able to break 5 seconds."
For the next exercise, Kame draws his "turtle" kanji on a stone then throws it off the clifftop they are on into the woods below. Goku jumps directly down into the trees while Kuririn runs down the mountain path. He decides to fake the stone and returns to Kame with one he marked himself. Kame says he can recognise when something isn't in his handwriting and hurls the rock back at Kuririn who runs back to the woods to look properly.
|Goku and Kururin disagree.|
A few days later training starts when Kame and Kuririn have recovered. Kame gives them some philosophy of martial arts:
Kame: "One masters those arts for health in mind and body for the ability to live ones life courageously, uniquely and energetically as one wishes."
They follow him for a jog to the diary where they are given milk to deliver all over the island. At the top of a hill is a temple. Kame says to the head monk that if Kuririn and Goku keep training diligently "they should be able to enter the tournament eight months from now." Kuririn tells Goku the "Tenka'ichi Budokai" or "Strongest Under Heaven" is where martial artists compete against each other. Both are excited at the prospect of taking part.
|An exciting prospect.|
|Goku shows his power.|
There morning training consists of ploughing fields with their bare hands. After lunch, Kame says they must train their minds as well. "We will begin with a study of the finest literature" and Goku starts reading a love scene from a racy novel. Next it's time to go swimming. Annoyed, Goku asks if they can forget this stuff and learn some moves.
Kame: "You little fledglings - how dare you be so insolent?! You haven't even laid the barest foundation of strength and stamina - and you expect me to teach you some moves?!!!!"
He points at a boulder and says when they can move that he'll teach them some moves. Goku concentrates then moves the boulder much to Kame's alarm. Kame then points at a much bigger boulder and says he means that one, which Goku cannot move. So swimming they go, avoiding sharks as they do so.
He then ties them to a tree and unleashes bees on them so they can learn to dodge. At the end of the day Kuririn asks if they'll be doing this every day. Yep says Kame and they'll be doing it wearing 20 kilo turtle shells on their backs.
Kame: "Now you see why they call me the turtle master?"
Seven months pass as Kuririn and Goku train together and become firm friends. One day they call Kame out and show him they can both move the huge boulder. After that demonstration Kame says he doesn't really have anything left to teach them. They have followed the Kamesen'in School of Martial Arts and without realising have forged their bodies into steel. Martial arts is no more than the application of those principles.
|Goku and Kururin surpass expectations.|
The month passes and when they take off the shells they feel light as air and can jump incredibly high into the sky. They all get dressed up in suits and travel to the Budokai arena to register. The registrar is amazed two kids want to compete.
Kame hands over new clothes for them to fight in, which have his personal turtle symbol on it marking them as his students. "I gotta be worthy of it" says Kuririn. Kame then takes his leave saying only the eight who make it through the qualifiers will fight in front of the crowd.
|New uniforms respecting their sensei.|
Goku goes up against a huge wrestler type. Goku runs through his legs then taps him on the leg which fells the large opponent. Kuririrn thinks he tripped, but Goku says to Kuririn to not use his full power unless the opponent is very strong. Then some monks from Kuririn's old temple show up and start bullying him. Kuririn has to fight one of them. Goku tells him to give the monk "one good shot". Kuririn dodges his opponents attacks and socks him one in the face, knocking him out.
|Kururin gets some catharsis.|
After the qualifiers there is a break and Goku takes Kuririn to meet Bulma, Puar and Oolong who are in the crowd to show their support. Then the final eight are called back to the waiting room next to the stage. Kame also mysteriously disappears. The contestants are Namu-san, Kaijo-Giran, Bacterian, Yamcha, Kuririn, Goku, Ran Fuan (the only female) and Kame in disguise as "Jackie Chun".
|The gang reunites.|
Goku: "The smell's all in your head!!! There's no way you can actually smell any of it. You've got no nose!!!"
And so with the power of breaking the fourth wall and being silly, Kuririn leaps up and kicks Bacterian in the head knocking him down and then farting on his head in retaliation. Kuririn wins the bout and on that cliffhanger we leave the tournament for now, as it's the end of the volume.
|Kururin versus the stinky Bacterian|
