    Nosrep looked with approval on Vanora's latest pose.

    "So you must be tactical when using it. Every strike must have a purpose. You must plan three steps ahead, lure them into a position that fits your endgame."

    Nosrep then tested Vanora's reflexes by delivering three fast slashes at her abdomen.

    Vanora swiftly and deftly moved her saber point upwards in a triangular sweep to counter each move of the other.

    OOC: =P~ That bit of advice about endgame and strategy sounded like Thrawn. :) [face_sigh]

    OOC: Honestly that was completely unintentional.:p

    The Ongree did not slow his strikes as the spar picked up pace. He pushed himself, and his apprentice ever so slightly further. Already he felt a bead of sweat on his chin, it had been some time since he had a proper spar. This would do him good as a refresher, just as it does his apprentice good for a learning experience.
    With a fast feint low, Semajj immediately offered two quick jabs at Vanora's head.

    "You're blade must become an impenetrable wall." Semajj elaborated. "Though you are likely more agile than I, so dodges may be just as effective in your case. Whatever is the least costly way to avoid being struck."

    Vanora feels as if she is able to more or less keep up with Nosrep's moves, but she is also keenly aware of his expert and adept skills.
    With a fast, low-aimed feint, Semajj immediately offered two quick jabs at Vanora's head.
    "Your blade must become an impenetrable wall. Though you are likely more agile than I, so dodges may be just as effective in your case. Whatever is the least costly way to avoid being struck."

    Vanora is prepared: she adroitly moves her saber to a position above her head, on a horizontal axis.
    Then she moves back to the opening pose with a double-handed grasp.

    "Effective." Semajj granted, as he recoiled his blade. "Be sure to use you're environment to your advantage..." He opened his mouth as if to speak again, but immediately crouched low, kicking his double jointed right leg towards her left knee in an attempt to off balance her.

    "Do not get lulled into patterns." The Ongree stated flatly as he simultaneously struck his blade at her arms. "Stay alert. True battles can be unpredictable. Your sequences can offer you some liberty, so you don't have to improvise. But when the unexpected strikes you must be ready to meet it."

    Nosrep allowed: "Effective. Be sure to use your environment to your advantage..."

    There was a brief pause.

    Suddenly, he crouched low, kicking his double jointed right leg towards her left knee in an attempt to off balance her. At the same time, he aimed his blade at her arms.

    "Do not get lulled into patterns. Stay alert. True battles can be unpredictable. Your sequences can offer you some liberty, so you don't have to improvise. But when the unexpected strikes you must be ready to meet it."

    Stang, but this one is really good, Vanora assessed, thinking fast.

    Vanora leapt to the side while at the same time sending her saber in a spinning spiral so that the aim went sideways into one of the absorbent side walls.

    The Ongree smiled at his apprentices creative escape, it reminded him of something he would have done when he was a Padawan.
    But he said nothing, and did not hesitate recalling his lightsaber blade back into attack position after her creative block.
    Instanty leaping forward on the attack, striking at the seemingly off balanced Vanora.
    Intending a mark of contact in the abdomen, and an end to their fight.

    Vanora noticed with pleasure Nosrep's smile at her most recent maneuver. As he aimed his blade towards her abdomen, she parried so that the blades' beams intersected and both went ricocheting upwards.

    Her stomach rumbled; all this exertion was working up an appetite. Vanora would love to have a tok-nut butter or choco-spread on a fluffy roll with beeble-berries and whipped cream.

    The Ongree raised his blade above his head, as if to attack again. But ultimately lowered it in a Jedi salute.
    "I am impressed by your creativity Vanora. Your understanding of Form III is remarkable."
    He deactivated his blade, and offered a formal bow.

    "You have progressed far in a short period of time. There is still much for you to learn however, expanding ones abilities is a lifelong task. However as you are studying to be a consular, it seems appropriate that this session has given you ample opportunity to learn your chosen form. It is up to you to be sure that you do not neglect your study of it going forward, even as your primary focus remains with the force."

    Nosrep saluted Vanora & deactivated his blade and made a formal bow. Vanora beamed as he gave her what she knew was not offhand commendation:

    "I am impressed by your creativity Vanora. Your understanding of Form III is remarkable. You have progressed far in a short period of time. There is still much for you to learn however, expanding ones abilities is a lifelong task. However as you are studying to be a consular, it seems appropriate that this session has given you ample opportunity to learn your chosen form. It is up to you to be sure that you do not neglect your study of it going forward, even as your primary focus remains with the force."

    She answered with deep pleasure, returning her training saber to the lock-safe: "I have studied the techniques and battles of Masters Yoda & Luke Skywalker, as well as that of Mara Jade-Skywalker, who was nothing if not inventive in a spar."

    OOC: L/M are one of my Legends OTPs, still & always. [face_love]
