Juhudi fends off the jackal pack

Twiga and several other Pride Lander parents approach Bunga, who agrees to watch their children. Together, Bunga and the young animals sing "Teke Ruka Teleza", in which Bunga teaches the children to "kick," "jump," and "slide."

In the middle of their games, the young animals are attacked by Reirei and her children, Kijana and Dogo. However, by using Bunga's "Teke Ruka Teleza" lesson, Juhudi and the other children are able to fend off the jackals. Shortly afterward, the parents return, and Juhudi excitedly relates her lessons to Twiga.

Juhudi and her mother, Twiga, flee Janja's attack

When Janja and his clan begin to hunt Juhudi and her mother, Twiga, the Lion Guard rushes to their defense. In the midst of the chase, the team splits up, with Kion and Beshte remaining to handle the situation. As Beshte and Kion race after the hyenas, Janja orders his lackeys to stop them. With four hyenas on the attack, Beshte and Kion quickly become overrun.

Up ahead, Twiga lashes out at Janja, kicking him away from her and thus saving Juhudi. Janja then calls a surrender, and the hyenas bank a hasty retreat. Beshte and Kion check on the status of the giraffes and then follow after the hyenas to make sure that they have left the Pride Lands.

Later, Juduhi and Twiga enjoy a show put on by Tamaa the drongo.
