As a MasterEdit
Reflecting his belief in non-violence, the only way to gain him as a master is to learn the non-lethal Backhand skill.
Early on, Hondara is a pretty useful master due to two abilities: Kyrie and Benediction. Later on in the game, he becomes outclassed by other masters.
Level up by 5 Levels and learn Kyrie before you venture into Angel Tower. By Ryu or Garr having the ability Kyrie (by either apprenticeship or passing along the skill), one of those 2 can use it in the Boss Battle vs. the Dragon Zombie to possibly 1-hit kill it. Ryu should also use the skill against Arwan later in the game for an instant kill.
Ironically, despite being a priest of Urkan Tapa, the hometown of Garr, Garr cannot benefit from him as a Master in any shape or form. Hondara focuses on magical properties, fields that Garr clearly lacks any skill in, making it pointless to apprentice Garr to him.
