On any day, Link can make his way to West Clock Town to meet the Swordsman. The swordsman says he is a brave warrior, and is fearless of even the moon. He has a stern demeanor, and can be hard on Link. He sits cross-legged and upon a small stage, waiting for worthy customers. He offers two types of training: a novice training course for one rupee, and an expert course for ten rupees. The novice course will introduce Link to the regular sword controls and how to use them. The expert course, on the other hand, is more of a challenge. During the course, 10 logs will come up from the floor. Link can destroy them anyway he wants to, but in order to get a perfect score of 30, Link must use the jump attack on all ten of them. If Link gets a perfect score, the Swordsman will recognize Link as a master and reward him with a Piece of Heart.
On the final night, Link can find the Swordsman in the back of the shop, curled up weeping, and saying that he doesn't want to die. It turns out that his tough guy image was just a facade.
