Naruto Season 1 Episode 22 Chunin Challenge: Rock Lee vs. Sasuke! Episode Recap

Sasuke seems to have attracted the attention of Rock Lee, who challenges him to a fight. Rock Lee is not only interested in seeing how his skills match up against a descendant of the Uchiha clan, but he also has a mad crush on Sakura, much to her dismay. Feeling neglected in his teammates' shadows, Naruto offers to fight in Sasuke's place. Without wasting time, he charges, but is easily knocked out by Rock Lee. Rock Lee explains that they cannot beat him because he is the strongest of the Konoha Genin right now. Now interested, Sasuke accepts his challenge.

Sasuke attacks and is met by Leaf hurricane(Konoha Whirlwind) and gets knocked backwards. As he gets back up, he prepares to use his Sharingan moves to figure out Rock Lee's technique. He again charges Rock Lee, but again, Rock Lee is able to hit him. Rock Lee explains that his moves are neither ninja nor illusory - just straight hand to hand fighting. Unfortunately, with hand to hand fighting, Sasuke's Sharingan isn't helpful because even if he can see the techniques, his body can't move fast enough to react. Rock Lee does Shadow of the Dancing leaf to finish off Sasuke, but a large turtle stops his attack before it hits.
