When the smoke first began to form from the smoke bomb hei acted quickly, unsheathing his katana ever so slightly he slammed it back into the sheath using 'shisu' to create a wave of energy which pushed the smoke and coincidentally the kunai away. It was then that he saw the shinobi begin to preform hand seals "not so fast" hei said as he continued his forward dash towards the shinobi, again drawing his sword at high speeds he leaped forward as he attempted to slice through the center of the shinobi's hands as he was forming hand seals, if the shinobi would have tryed to simply leap backwards the extra momentum from the leap would assure a clean hit, while if he tryed to move to the sides the full ranged motion of the strike would still likely wound him. Hei may not have been that of a shinobi but he had seen many a shinobi fight and knew of their cowardice in the heat of battle which often consisted of substituting with that of an object instead of taking an attack like a true warrior, expecting this he of course looked out for it, the extra leap preformed with the slash would allow for less chance of getting hit by any attacks from behind or the sides.
Ao didn't continue waving signs as he saw the man cutting throw the smoke easily, instead he prepared a kunai and started to focus his chakra on his left hand; when the man's sword made contact with the metal kunai Ao's right arm was pushed back with the strength of the sword attack, immediately after the man would attack again Ao punched the ground sending some large stones toward the Samurai and creating an small trench, once there Ao ended waving the needed signs to use Mist Servant technique
, during that time the Samurai should be dealing with the stones threw at him (it's just a D rank jutsu so it didin't need many signs.
Just a second after that Ao ran out of the ditch and ran to the right holding kunais on his hands, at the same time a clone ran to the left with kunais on his hands too, each of the running Aos were leaving after images behind them, in just an instant there were seven 8 Ninjas around the Samurai including Ao's clone, even if the clone or the real Ao would stop the images would appear; some of them were on the ground, others standing on three's logs at medium height one was even on a taller branch. Suddenly several of the Aos started to throw a bunch of needles towards the man from different directions but not at the same time.
