Earlier in the movie, Grandma Osaki, the wise Japanese woman warns Cho, that Braiden couldn't and shouldn't be trusted under any circumstances. Following the brutal killing of their family by ninjas, Braiden offers to take Cho and Grandma Osaki to America. Needless to say, Cho will start wishing he listened to mama, when tragedy begins to strike again in America.
Braiden has just made plans for a heroin deal and is infiltrating the Cho Art Gallery (supposedly deserted) where he's has arranged to meet his buyer, Chaifano. When Braiden arrives, resplendent in his ninja suit, he finds Chaifano is not there and what is more, the dolls carrying the heroin are missing.
Braiden is deeply flustered by this, but he learns that his troubles are just beginning, because the Art Gallery has a tenant in back: Grandma Osaki, who is dressed in a kimono and armed only with her prayer beads she had been using to meditate before she was interrupted by the intruder’s presence.
She enters the dojo area, and picks up a wooden doll before sneaking into the changing area, where she notices a ladder, protruding down from the roof's window. Braiden, sensing he's not alone, decides to make a hasty retreat and quickly climbs up the ladder, but Grandma Osaki has opened the doll up and emptied the chains hidden inside out of it. She catches Braiden trying to slink out like a serpent, but manages to use the chains, connected to the head of the doll like a rope and lasso Braiden’s ankle, yanking him off the ladder.
Braiden can see this old coot is going to be more troublesome than he had expected and so he draws his sword, cuts the chain, and begins a duel with the unarmed Osaki.
However, Grandma Osaki may look elderly and sweet, but because she comes from a clan of ninjas, she can be ruthless and she shows it with a glare from her eyes. Grabbing another weapon off the weapon's wall, Grandma pulls the ends off to reveal short spear. She throws it at Braiden, but being the expert that he is, he catches it and throws the short spear back embedding itself in the old woman's shoulder. Grandma groans in pain and looks at the blade protruding from her shoulder with horror and Braiden gets into a fighting stance, preparing to turn the elderly woman into sashimi. But Grandma has one more trick up her sleeve: the other end of the spear in her hand is a blowgun and she fires two darts at Braiden, which he dodges, before she takes out a smoke bomb and vanishes like a ghost.
Braiden could've taken that moment to retreat, but chooses to say and finish what was started. Walking over to a bunch of screen curtains, Braiden observes each carefully. He stops in front of the second one and without warning, he whirls his sword in the air and then jams it straight through one of the curtains. A blood-curdling scream of agony tears through the air and Braiden realizes he's just hit jackpot, as blood begins to ooze from the curtain and onto the floor. Braiden then opens the curtain open and he finds Grandma Osaki, blood gushing from her mouth and impaled on his blade. The pain is excruciating and Grandma is indeed in shock, not from the impalement, but for the fact that Braiden still knew she was in the room. As she groans some more, she slides down onto her knees, tearing the fabric and lets out a soft moan before her head collapses down and she dies.
