A number of officer candidates in white uniforms, and steel helmets, carrying rifles, demonstrate their skills running through an obstacle course, including a high barrier that must be scaled, as senior officers watch. Several candidates demonstrate gymnastic skills, performing giant swings on horizontal bars. The emperor stands alone, observing, as other candidates perform stunts across various barriers.
