The Dancing Leaf discipline is the art of defense–dodging and counterattacks, deft evasion and trickery. It is unusual among the disciplines never taught at the Temple of Nine Swords because it was known to Reshar. However, the revered blade adept and Master of Nine rejected the discipline. While Reshar was a master of many diverse schools of combat, he saw no value in a discipline that taught only how to avoid an attack, and not how to make one. Thus, the teachings of the Dancing Leaf discipline were never brought together in a single place of learning, instead remaining in the hands of a few elder adepts. While these masters have not kept the discipline's ways a secret, few have sought them out to learn the arts of the Dancing Leaf, and fewer still have mastered the ultimate defense.
