I don't think there's anything particularly special about this fight.
Some general fighting hints:
Study him and learn what pattern he uses.
If you're having trouble hitting him after dodging, then don't try. Wait until he does a minor attack, parry and then, assuming he's destabilized, attack back.
Take it slowly. There's no hurry.
Try to use some of the special skills that you should have learned in earlier visits to the dojo. They do a lot more damage.
