IC: Zukaam. Yavin IV, Jedi Academy. Zukaam's head began buzzing with fear, who would he be paired up with, what about if it were someone he hadn't befreinded yet? He wasn't going to let it spoil his first session of training thought, he wasn't ready, but he might aswell let the education sink in while he was listening. "Zuukam, you will be dueling with Sierra." Looked looked up at the pair, Zukaam suddenly felt himself go all weak. He didn't like the fact he had to spar a girl, he would just be too careful not to hold back, he heard force-using feminines were extremely hasty with a lightsaber. "Brittany, you'll be paired up with Wren. And Ta'Izz, you'll be paired with Vaughn." He found this simple to imagine, Britt had spent quite a lot of time chatting to them, therefore he probably wouldn't feel as nervous about sparring with his freinds. Zukaam hardly knew Sierra, but he hoped to learn more about her after sparring, she seemed kind enough after all. Knowing that Sierra had seen a lightsaber long before Zukaam had, he was almost sure nothing could go wrong. "Now, for our first part of saber training, we will work on the basics. Parrying, and attacking. For our first parry, a directive from Form I lightsaber combat, you bring the blade down to the middle of your thigh, parralel to the ground, like this." He removed a training lightsaber from the nearby bench and took a nice glimpse of the shining weapon before his eyes. It had black patterns for gripping, seemingly nice to grab a firm hold of. The big red button were for activation of the weapon which as he pressed, sprung the weapons blade to life, the blue shining blade emerged. Zukaam practiced the movement, executing the instruction in a matter of seconds. "Now, this time, your fellow duelist will bring their saber down vertically, to make contact with yours. Try to get a feel for energy against energy." Luke's words echoed through the chamber. Zukaam nodded to Sierra. "Okay, shoot Sierra, I'm ready." Zukaam allowed her, as he got himself into a defensive position with his saber at his side, activated. TAG: Mainly Sierra. Luke and everyone else.
