I think that Amuro at the beginning would have had his ass handed to him by
a top cadet like Kou (he has to be a top cadet to be in a test team, even
if he is the target paractice dodo). BUT, as soon as amuro learned how to
use the gundam...damn...even with only a beam saber and a shield, he would
have been able to knock out kou. case in point: kou relies a lot on
frontal combat...Amuro loves to play dirty, since he has no notion of
