How to solve the Kyononis Shrine puzzle in Zelda: TotK

When you are in the Kyononis Shrine, head down the stairs and enter the hall. In the hall, a construct will rise and you will have to train on the Construct. The construct doesn’t deal damage, so you won’t need to use your ranged weapons on the Construct.
Firstly, the game will prompt you to side hop when the construct attacks which will give you an opening to attack the Construct back. This can be done by targeting the enemy, pointing your left stick to the right or left, and pressing the jump button when the construct attacks.
Next, you will be instructed to do a backflip and dodge the construct’s attack, this will also open the window to attack it. The backflip can be done by targeting the Construct, pointing the moving stick back, and jumping at the right time.
Next, you will need to parry and incapacitate the enemy for a limited time. To do this Ready your Shield and then Parry at the time the construct slashes its weapon.
Finally, you will need to destroy the construct using the Charged attack which can be done by pressing and holding “Y” and releasing it. the charged attack will eat up stamina so time and aim your attack rightly.
After killing the Construct, you will get the Construct Bow, the Rusty Broadsword, and the Zonai Charge. Killing the construct will also open the door to moving in. Inside the room, there will be a chest that contains the Zonaite Sword.
Next, when you examine the Hologram in the back, you will be rewarded with the Light of Blessing. You can use this Light of Blessing and four of them with a slight increase in the stamina wheel or a Heart Container.
