Sho had the wind knocked out of him as the staff hit him in the stomach. Hiroki was too quick for him to dodge or effectively block. This didn't mean that he wouldn't fight back. He may not have been an expert at martial arts but he was competent enough at fighting. He grabbed the staff after it hit him and pulled sideways. "I'll defend myself if you insist on continuing this," he said between pants. It didn't matter how attractive Hiroki was. Sho wasn't going down without a fight.
