      Senpou leaping kicks are very useful throughout the game, with high monk this deals high posture damage on sweep attacks

        I highly reccomend ignore whole tree on first playthrough,none of this skills are vital for your surviving in harsh sekiro world,neither give you diversity in combat other trees offering,this tree mostly store quality of life passives and very debatable combat arts.

          Its possible to get this Temple art early game via Headless shortcut to Demon Bell then make your way to the Scroll. Otherwise, you get it mid-game later.
