"Aaagh! Ungh! Yikes!" Jumpy shouts as the first two punches hit his head and side, but he fortunately manages to block the third with his glove. Determined not to take any more hits, he listens carefully to what Haelth has to tell him. He figures she has some real experience to go by, After all, there’s a lot more to her battlefield knowledge than his own experience fighting other kids in the ring, or the occasional talking cheetahs and robots. He has had some unusual opponents before… lol
"Right! I’ve heard something like that before! Eyes on your opponent!" Jumpy nods, eager to continue.
"Let’s try again!" He gets into position, and raises his gloves up in defense this time, carefully approaching Haelth. When he’s close enough, he throws a couple quick jabs at her side before feinting (faking) a left curving hook at the stomach before a quick right uppercut at the chin. Meanwhile he tries to keep eye contact with Haelth, keeping his gloves up so as not to leave an opening like before.
He’s hoping this sparring lesson will help him in his future fights, since he’s been on a bit of a losing streak, having been knocked out in his last few marches.
Haelth nodded,” That’s what I’m trying teaching you.” She smile when Jumpy finally start learning what she talking about. Haelth though that training someone would be a lot harder but Jumpy was surprising a good learner. Mostly because how Zero gets headache from training rookies(some of which was cause by her). Once Jumpy was ready to fight. Haelth took a few steps back and got into a fighting stance,” Show me what you got Jumpy!” She said with a grin.
Haelth watch Jumpy moves closely, as she got right into fighting stance. She watch him closely as Jumpy carefully approach her. She blocked one the jabs that were going her side, but almost fall for the fake punch that was going for her stomach. She quickly step back from the uppercut but just barely dodge it. She threw a punch at Jumpy’s shoulder and then one to his side. Then feinting(faking) a punch to Jumpy other side before going right for his stomach.
"You’re doing a good job Jumpy," Haelth said to him after the fight was over. She hold out her hand for Jumpy to grab. Once Jumpy was up and decide that it was time to give Jumpy a second lesson, "I think you are ready for your next lesson," She said to Jumpy. "I’m going to show you how to block correctly," Haelth explained to him. Jumpy seem to have problems blocking her attacks, so Haelth figure it would a good lesson for him. After all if he keep on getting hit like that Jumpy going to have brain damaged.
(And this RP takes place a little while ago too. Jumpy’s a lot better at blocking now than before. lol But this is part of his improving!)
Jumpy takes the hits to his shoulder, side and stomach. Definitely not his best moment, but that’s part of learning!
"Aaagh! Uuuuh! Uuungghhh!" he shouts as the punches hit and he loses his balance, falling backward in the process. The third punch leaves a bruise on his stomach too, a reminder he needs to keep those gloves up! Defense 101.
Seeing Haelth offer her hand, Jumpy accepts it and gets back to his feet with her help. That probably could have gone better. But he’s ready to shake it off, and learn how to block right! If he’s going to start winning fights again, he needs to work on defense!
"Ow… Thanks! Right! I’m ready for the next lesson!" Jumpy smiles and gets his gloves up in a classic defense pose, eager to learn how to fortify his guard. He’s also settled down, an indication he’s starting to buckle down and concentrate on what he’s about to learn, knowing full well he’ll need a good defense to go with offense.
