Saki

Character
ARKANIA

This was a strange time indeed, Saki didn't really know what else to really say about it but she had promised to take some jedi who wanted to learn out. Then she had contacted a healer and gotten everything ready on the training ship while she sat there lacing up her boots and gloves. The dashi robe was there to keep her warm on Arkania, the others who liked the idea of coming were welcome but she wanted to get to know the healer who was new. There was plenty they could do later on as time permitted. after all and who knew what they could find when practicing some of the force techniques.

"All right all of you listen up this isn't going to be a simple task. I'm going to teach you how to fight without your sabers. You all rely too much on it and it can be taken or destroyed. Learn how to have a thick hide for kicking someone teeth in if needed."

Leori Sheltrak

Character
Character
Leori was already standing, and buttoning her full length robe. She disliked the cold. Tapas was a most useful skill, but considering that she used much of her energy on healing techniques, it was a power that was for the most part wasted on her. So, she was more apt to dress for the occasion. It was easy enough to peel layers off as they were no longer needed.

The Jedi Master bent down to pick up her med kit, and she was ready to go. The med kit she probably wouldn't need, but she always had it just in case. She was more than skilled enough to heal with the Force, but sometimes that wasn't always possible.

Their task was a very good one in her opinion. Defensive techniques were important. She'd learned that a long time ago. Leori was very fast. She might not pack a lot of punch, but she can certainly wear someone out. She smirked a little. It could be fun. Maybe she'd participate as well as patch up the boo boos.

Vulpesen stood before Saki, bundled up in thick robes as he listened to her words. Both scenarios stuck home as Vulpesen remembered when both things had happened, leaving him injured and in immense amounts of pain. With her words of not using a saber, Vulpesen gave his weapon to Ace who took the blade and moved away, holding the weapon in his jaws as he took it to safety. "Well now, this sounds like fun." He very rarely went hand to hand, but if something like that happened, he wanted to be prepared for it. @[member="Saki"]
 

Saran Drast

Character
Saran stood, silent, as @[member="Saki"] spoke of an over-reliance on sabers and the need for alternate methods of combat. You can say that again. To Saran, who carried three sabers, one a shoto, 'over-reliance' was an understatement. But she wasn't sure that fighting without a weapon, against someone with a saber, was all that wise. one could just as easily loose a hand as overcome the opponent. Still, she was in the system, and Jacobs still had no reply from Carn as to a rendezvous. Her robes draped over her, both layers should be enough to keep her warm.

When the ship opened and the first blast of chilled air came a grin was on her face. Letting it bit as her cheeks before going out and looking at the jedi inside her hands motioned. "Alright come on then, we'll set up and then I'll punch you around a bit." Her smirk remained cause she wasn't lying about that, best way to learn defense and besides some kasi techniques might help them out. Slowly she came to the end and some of the rocks around them were more then enough space. to sit and prepare. "Alright put your things down and get ready, in case those who do not know, when it comes to fighting a saber wielder there are three things you can do. Overwhelm them with the force, use the force to make an object able to resist or use disarming techniques. We'll be working on the third but don't discount a well placed shadowstrike with the force to their groin. No one walks away from that without pain. Now spread out in positions." Saki moved taking the robe off, the darkened armorweave going away to reveal armorweave vest, kama, leather boots, and the bracers darron wraith had given her. Blue painted cortosis with vibroknucklers made for resisting sabers.

Leori hopped out of the ship and moved toward the rocks. She chose a rock to plop herself down on, and set her med kit down beside her. Stretching out her legs in front of her, she leaned back briefly until her back cracked. Then she smiled. There was much to be said for an adjustment. She was ready, but she wouldn't be going first. That wasn't exactly fair, or fun.

The Jedi Master listened as @[member="Saki"] described three ways to take on a lightsaber wielding opponent. Her first choice would be to overwhelm an opponent with the Force, as she was not particularly fond of wearing resistant materials. Disarming techniques were possible too. She was content to listen for now.

Coci had been in the ship, away from the others. It was not in her nature or line of work to make friends and so she keep to herself. However, she was in a position to hear Knight Saki and took everything she had said on board. She sat sizing them up, looking over each one noting their physique, height, weight, body structure .. and going over in her head the possible methods she could use to eliminate them if she ever received the order to do so. She knew she would probably never get this order, but it is always good to be prepared and in practice.

As soon as the ship touched down, Coci gather her things and wrapped her cloak around her body. The cold air hit her face like a wall but she was so pleased to be off that infernal ship. She followed behind the other .. keeping back and moved to the rocks. She waited and listened to instructions.

As the ship touched down, Rasu made sure she was one of the last off, taking her time for her body to prepare for the chilly temperatures outside. With her robe draped around her, she shuffled out, body tensing as it left the warmth of the ship into the freezing cold. Joining the others, she remained at the back, needing only to hear Saki's words not see her utter them. She had to admit, this idea to provide hand to hand combat training to the Jedi was quite ingenious, something that she thought must be added to the curriculum at the Academy or at least viewed with a bit more importance. The Jedi's words indeed spoke truth, as although the Headmistress had never faced an opponent without her beloved weapons, she knew that in reality her lightsabers could be destroyed her placed out of reach, leaving her fists and the Force becoming her only means of attack.

Taking Saki's orders, she moved over to a vacant spot and awaited the Knight's further instructions, as she took off her robe and hanged it over a nearby tree, using the Force to trap the heat inside her body so to stop her from shivering.

Vulpesen followed behind the teacher, keeping himself casually guarded, just in case she decided to start said beating and training early.As for the blistering cold, he let out a growl as he entered the outside air. He was used to warmer climates and the arkanian cold was completely unwelcome tot he jedi who now bundled himself into his coat, focusing the force to warm his body. Unlike other jedi, he preferred to keep his robes on, finding them surprisingly unrestricted in battle. "I would like to go on record, that this already feels worse that some of my harder missions." Despite his grumpy tone, Vulpesen was eager to begin training and exited to learn these new abilities. Taking his place, Vulpesen prepared for the lesson's beginning.

Saki laughed hearing Vulpesen and rolled her shoulders while in place. Alright now how to start the lesson officially. Well best to try it out and see. "Alright one of the first techniques you learned or should have learned was how to physically enhance your body. Well we're going to take that a step further, beyond endurance we're going to look at strength enhancing to a larger degree. Now focus on the force going into you, breathing in and out while pushing it to your muscles... Then imagine pushing it into them instead of through. Make them toughter, bigger and yourself stronger." Saki demonstrated for a moment as she pushed her hands together and clenching the fists her muscles bulked a little rippling and showing the tattoo's. The veins pulsing for a moment while the scrawny fighter looked slightly more defined with her muscles. "Now you try."

Vulpesen closed his eyes and focused himself in the force. For him, the power of the galaxy was much like a river, flowing through the space around him. This ideology seemed to help him as he diverted said river into himself. Every breath pumpeld already d a new ammount of energy into him and he could already feel a new kind of strength begin to build up within himself. @[member="Saki"]
 

Saran Drast

Saran smirked, something rarer for her now, this was better, to be able to do things, even train with her fellow Jedi without being in a war. This was what she was for. She was no soldier, no field commander, she didn't belong on the battlefield. The cold was good, better than some conditions that she had been through in the past few weeks. Still, she wasn't here to be comfortable. If @[member="Saki"] wasn't kidding, then it would be far from comfortable. Still it was better than almost dieing from heatstroak.

Letting the Force run through her body, she did as she was told. Or tried, at any rate. Her muscles seemed to get larger, but not like Saki had showed. She didn't feel stronger, or anything else. She felt almost normal. A little cold, perhaps, but normal.

Coci moved slightly to the right to give herself room to move. She gathered the force around her, she now recognised is more and more and the sense of it growing stronger in her. It began to flow like a river through her body and as Knight Saki had instructed, she tried to gather it to her muscles in her arms and legs.

She felt a surge of blood pumping through her body, the force saturating it and feeding her flesh, her muscles strengthened and they felt heavier then normal, almost uncomfortable with it. She is not used to this sensation, but it was not unbearable. She stood trying just to maintain this connect and to further the strengthening.

Leori actually chuckled at @[member="Vulpesen"] when he commented about the weather. She was certain that it would be forgotten before long, as it was likely that missions were going to get far more intense, considering the training they were about to go through. One could hope not, but that wouldn't help anything. Training was beginning, and her ears perked in interest.

It had been a long time since she'd used the Force in this manner, so she thought it wise to follow along. She flexed her fingers as she began to feed her muscles Force energy. And she smirked a little bit. It was easier than she remembered it being as a padawan.

Saki looked at them all and gave a nod of her head while she popped her neck, then slowly planted her feet with one in front of the other. Her hand coming forward with the right dangling for a moment at her side not needed just yet. "Alright this is a ready stance from here I can prepare for two things, attacking you or defending. In the case of a saber wielder I can watchi his movements and when he comes in strike to break his arm. If someone is coming at you though." Her hand pointed to @[member="Vulpesen"] as she gave a smirk. "Come at me."

Losing herself in the steady flow of the Force, Rasu opened herself to the stream of life energy, feeling it flood into her body. Immediately she could sense the difference that it made to her body, her skin becoming tighter under the bulging of her muscles. She felt exhilarated, the Force giving her the destructive power of a rancor, this being how strong she felt. Why she hadn't thought of doing this before now, she would not know, she was only glad that she had accompanied her fellow Jedi here to master this. It would prove useful indeed.

Letting the Force energy leave her body, she opened her eyes, to discover that the class had already moved on, the Shi'ido becoming too entranced in her latest discovery. Drawing her eyes, she let them rest on Saki, who was already in her fighting stance. Rasu was able to just catch her final words, before turning to face Vulpesen, Saki's latest victim. She kind of felt sorry for the poor man, knowing the painful fate that awaited him. She knew no one here really wanted to face the Knight, but someone was going to have to do it eventually. With a playful grin, she nudged Vulpesen, causing him to stagger into the middle, bringing him closer to their instructor. Oh yes, she was definitely relieved to be the observer and not the victim!

Vulpesen sighed and sent a telepathic command to Ace who brought his saber to the door of the hangar(Unlike his bondmate, Ace was without robes, and coming from Myrkyr, he preferred to stay out of weather capable of killing him). Using the force to call the blade into his hand, Vulpsen ignited the weapon (he had earlier replaced the back end saber with a stun saber). Flicking on the back end, Vulpesen brought it down in a downward chop, this attack was further committed to by @[member="Rasu Gan"]'s push. @[member="Saki"]

So he wanted to use his saber huh? Saki was internally grinning when he came at her letting the force do as she said. Flow through her body for the moments until she felt him come close enough. Unil the blade was incoming and she brought her hand up to catch with the bracer allowing the metal to to its job. Deflect the strike, her dangling hand became rigid and stiff for a moment while she came forward and swiped up hooking so it became a scoop for a low blow with the force making her stronger to try and lift him up with a fast groin shot and flip onto the ground.

Vulpesen watched her block the attack and was immediately grateful that it was a simple move that required almost no focus. As the teacher's hand came swooping up, Vulpesen used his free hand to move downwards, catching the counter strike on his palm. The result was a painful throb in his hand and wrist, but he was at least happy to keep his lower assets away from the pain had the move connected. Feeling that her example with his lightsaber was complete, the jedi deactivated the blade and dropped it. As the metal his the snow, Vulpesen took a step back to disengage the elder knight. Ace would pick up his saber when he got the chance, but for now, Vulpesen was content with continuing the lesson without the distraction. @[member="Saki"]

Saki looked at Vulps when he went back to stand and shrugged a little popping her neck and rolling her shoulders. The force focusing in her body while she moved and spoke. "Alright now focus that energy into your body and leap into the air. Then expand it when you hit the ground. We're going for shockwaves here and while not strong they can help you out." Saki moved while she jumped up and came down with a punch to the ground and a small fissure formed. "Try it."
