None of the samurai schools will teach crippled Niya, until a letter of offer arrives from the legendary samurai warrior Ki-Yaga, sensei of the Cockroach Ryu. Niya joins the four other students of the Cockroach Ryu, all with barriers of some sort, and as they learn traditional samurai skills become firm friends. The students prepare for the Samurai Trainee Games. They are in awe of the powerful Dragon Ryu and feel they have no chance of winning. But Sensei knows appearance is not a measure of strength. "Cockroaches are only small, but they are very hard to kill," he teaches and the cockroaches soon discover that differences can sometimes be advantages. They end up winning the championships. The Dragon Master calls Ki-Yaga a cheat.
