Focus on Parrying and Dodging

Almost all of Kojiro's attacks are unblockable. It is best to have the Deflection and Evasion upgrades in the Samurai Technique trees to make it much easier to parry or dodge his attacks. Careful watch for the light of his sword to see which attacks you need to dodge and which ones you can parry.

List of Samurai Techniques

Watch Out for Multi-Hit Moves

Kojiro almost never uses single hit attacks and will always go for combo attacks. If you do not parry the first attack, it is guaranteed he will go for another attack right after. Always be on your guard even after dodging his attacks.
