Explanation of the 6 stages of Hashira Training in Demon Slayer

The intense Hashira Training in Demon Slayer is split into six stages, and we’ve dissected each arduous step of the process.

The long-awaited Demon Slayer Season 4 has finally debuted. The Hashira Training Arc is the briefest arc in the series, centering on the demon slayers’ quest to achieve their full potential. The impending battle against the Upper Moons and Muzan Kibutsuji promises to be unlike any challenge they have encountered before.

Therefore, it is essential that everyone is able to fully utilize their abilities. The initial installment is a one-hour debut that centers on the Hashira gathering, where they uncover the origins of the Demon Slayer Marks. In addition, Muichiro elaborates on the prerequisites for manifesting the mark.

The training serves the dual purpose of enhancing the strength of the lower ranks and aiding the Hashira. Although the training has already commenced and has been grueling thus far, the first episode only offers a glimpse of it. Therefore, let us delve into all six stages of the Hashira Training in Demon Slayer.

Stage 1: Stamina Training

Instructor: Right Uzui

After his intense battle with Gyutaro, Uzui stepped down from his position as a Hashira. Despite his retirement, he continues to dedicate his time to training the others. The initial phase of their training involves constant running at a high pace to increase their stamina. Uzui was disheartened by their inability to endure for extended periods. His selection for this stage was due to his extraordinary stamina, developed from his upbringing and grueling childhood training.

Stage 2: Rapid Movement Training

Instructor: Muichiro Tokito

Mucihiro is using his personal sword-fighting skills to teach others how to improve their muscle control and coordination for better body movement, including performing swings. This, along with his other abilities, allowed him to quickly rise to the rank of Hashira. By imparting these skills, he is also helping the demon slayers maintain their alertness and focus during battles.

Flexibility Training

Mitsuri Kanjroi is the trainer.

Mitsuri’s exceptional flexibility enables her to handle her weapon with ease and without injuring herself, making her the ideal Hashira for this particular stage. Her training methods are also quite unique, as she has the demon slayers wear leotards and perform non-stop dances to the rhythm of the music. Additionally, Mitsuri uses her superhuman strength to stretch and push the demon slayers, making the training incredibly painful for them.

Stage 4: Sword Skill Revision Training

Instructor: Obanai Iguro

In this stage, Obanai will confront the trainees inside a dojo, wielding a wooden sword. The dojo is also filled with bound demon slayers, creating an additional challenge for the trainees as they must navigate around them while swinging their own swords.

Stage 5: Infinite Slashing Training

Instructor: Sanemi Shinazugawa

During this beatdown session, Sanemi relentlessly slashes at the trainees until they are unable to stand. Despite the use of wooden swords, they are no match for Sanemi. This session also serves as an opportunity for Sanemi to increase his body temperature and meet the requirements for manifesting the Demon Slayer Mark.

Muscle Amplification Training

Gyomei Himejima is the trainer.

The most challenging part of the Hashira Training in Demon Slayer is the final stage. Its aim is to develop a strong and stable body with the ability to make accurate attacks and maintain a tireless defense. As a result, the trainee must first withstand the freezing water of the mountain river’s waterfall, then carry three heavy logs on their shoulders, and finally push a massive boulder through a town.
