Zen was surprised by the force kick to the gut, it even moved him back a little. The kick was so strong it broke through his shielding. The shield began to beep inside his helmet indicating it had been broken. Had this been a normal fight Zen would have either charged the enemy or dove into cover. Since this was just a duel he stood there and let out a mighty laugh. The shield came back online after a few seconds and Zen raised his sword.
"Its been sometime since I've had a good fight. You have been so kind to show me a good fight so I think its about time I returned the favor."
He began running at Juhani with the sword raised high in the air. He brought the sword down this time with much power behind it.
