Shimon is skilled enough to hide his presence very well. He also is highly intellegent as he is able to figure out other people's skill just by watching them. Shimon practices the Kannari Style, so he specializes in drawing techniques. He's extremely perceptive, as he was able to understand the mechanics of the secret technique Manjinuki after witnessing it in action once, and then copy it perfectly.
Ultimate Quickdraw Technique of the Kannari School: Nagisengetsu (神成流居合奥義 凪繊月 Calm Crescent Moon): Shimon draws his sword but instead of hilding the handle, he launches it at his opponent blocking their field of vision. He then grabs that sword in midair and slash his opponent.
Sagiuchi ( 鷺討 Heron Strike): A technique that Shimon had created on his own. Shimon places the blade inbetween his thumb and index finger of his left hand. He then uses his hand as a launching pad to slide the sword to produce an intensely accelerating thrust.
Manjinuki ( 卍抜 Manji Draw): The ultimate and secret technique of the Kannari School. Shimon takes a left facing stance, then as he draws the sword while pulling the scabbard at the same time and taking a step forward with his right foot. As a result the incoming slash is incredibly fast and very difficult to parry.
