The Swordsman does not physically participate in training sessions. Rather, he raises logs from out of the floor to serve as targets. He remains sitting cross-legged on a raised platform at far end of the hall. To his left is a Cow Figurine, to his right a gong that yields small amounts of Rupees[how many?] when struck with different attacks.[which?]
Behind the Swordsman is a trophy shelf and a wooden placard that reads, 剣道場 (Kendo Hall).[verification needed] Destroying the placard reveals a secret room behind it. There are 5 Pots in the secret room containing a total of 25 Rupees—one Blue Rupee in each.[verification needed]
After midnight on the Final Day, there is a Sign where the Swordsman usually sits. It reads, "I'll be on vacation for a short while. Please don't look for me." During that time, the Swordsman is in fact cowering in a corner of the secret room.
The Swordsman's School offers two Sword Training courses:
- Novice Course, a tutorial which costs 1 Rupee.
- Expert Course, a mini-game which costs 10 Rupees.
The Novice Course is a Sword-fighting tutorial. To complete it, Link must perform the following moves in order: Sideways Jump, Roll Attack, Backflip, Horizontal Cut, Vertical Cut, Thrust, Jump Attack.
The Expert Course is a mini-game where one earns points by slashing 10 logs in succession. One earns 3 points for slicing a log lengthwise with a Jump Attack, and 1 point for every other attack.[verification needed] There is a Piece of Heart reward for earning 30 points by slicing all 10 logs with the Jump Attack.
The Japanese name of the Swordsman's School, 剣道場 (Kendō Jō), is inscribed on a placard at the back of the hall. In Majora's Mask 3D, this name is also inscribed in Hylian on a sign above where the Swordsman sits.
