Hi Shin Army

The Gouriki is a unique anti-cavalry tactic used by the Hi Shin Army and Kyou Kai Unit as one of their established and signature formations.  


Thought up and invented by Kyou Kai as multiple members of the then Hi Shin Unit wanted her to personally teach them, she decided to create a new tactic instead.  


The infantry at the front line split up into ten-man teams with two squads of five men temporarily join up to become one "clump" of ten bodies. Each "clump" then forms up near each other in a zig zag pattern to avoid having individual cavalry breaking through. Facing the incoming enemies, they form an overlapping shield wall. And then, they become like a rock. If all ten men can mentally focus and overlap their concentration, then they will be able to withstand any force. By using this tactic, a series of 10-man squads can halt the momentum of a cavalry charge and bring them to a standstill. Consequentially, the charging cavalry is knocked over or forced to halt and can be taken care of with close quarter units as the horsemen can't maneuver in such a crowded space.

Shown during the Battle at Shukai Plains, Kyou Kai would later refine it within her unit to the point that they could perform multiple interlinked formations.


Using this tactic can result in the users receiving a fair amount of damage and recoil as well. Common injuries seen among the defenders include broken bones and dislocated joints.
