This sort of duplicity is actually NOT how Jobo normally runs his business. Jobo’s a hardworking guy. He’s supremely prepared for each Tourney. He takes annual trips to seven of the eight schools in order to scout their fighters, and attends other tourneys or duels as much as possible. (There is no need to attend the eighth school, as will become clear a little later on.) But Maliya Pel and her “new school” have shaken him badly. They can ruin his business, and he’s not allowing THAT.
