Look for a building with an elevated open roof. Enter the building through the roof but don't drop down all the way.
Step 3: Grapple When Dropping Down
There's a grapple point that appears when you drop down. Grapple to the wooden beams so you can prepare for a Deathblow attack on Sen 'un.

Deal With Other Centipede Enemies After Deathblow
While he recovers, use this time to deal with the other Long Arm Centipede enemies, as they can deal burn'damage.
Isolate Sen 'un By The Side Of The Bonfire
You can also isolate Sen 'un by drawing him to the side of the bonfire at the center of the temple. This shields you from attacks from the other Centipede enemies.
Defeat Centipede Sen 'un by Breaking his Posture
