    No, Jo hadn't forgotten this was friendly sparring, but she'd been ticked off. She already knew about his under-armor, though, so she knew she probably wouldn't even land a scratch on him, which she, in fact, didn't. As was to be expected.

    But then he grabbed her arm and twisted it around behind her back and sent her sprawling on the ground again, and she barely managed to catch herself with her free hand. Oh, this burned more than landing on her back four times in a row. The only way she knew he was closeby was from his arm still pinning hers to her back and from the mere fact that she could feel the heat radiating off of his body, which was so close to hers that his harsh breath tickled on the back of her neck when he spoke.

    She swallowed and suppressed a shiver, trying to free himself from his grip, but it was too strong to break free from easily. She drew a shallow breath, thinking quickly, then came up with an idea. Chancing a quick look over her shoulder to see where he was exactly, she lashed out with her foot and kicked backwards, ramming it into what was hopefully one of his kneecaps. It probably wouldn't do any damage, but her arm was beginning to feel numb and she didn't want to have to beg him to let her go.

    Ahhh, the Rhizomian Tusho-bo hold. A classic to many combatants, and an absolute pain to break out of; as no doubt dear Jo was finding out. Still, even as she tried to feebly kick out a knee, he was a good sport and he released her, hopping back and giving them at least ten feet of breathing space.

    "Well! Can't say I was expecting you to break out of that one!" He called out to her. "The only man to have ever bested me in hand-to-hand combat was Buzz Lightyear, himself! And he's a terrible proponent of leg sweeps and flips. Too fancy for me, personally." Says the one who took nearly five seconds of martial arts noises on Sentilla 6 accompanied with flowery moves. His little secret.

    "I'm more of a defense kind of guy." Zurg shrugged modestly, before laying his gaze back upon Jo. "Still want to tango in free-style, or do you want to learn a few moves, first?"

    "So Lightyear was the only one to ever best you," Jo repeated, getting back up to her feet. Craters, she was doing a lot of that lately. She was definitely going to be sore in the morning. "Guess he wasn't that good, or else he would've arrested you a long time ago, huh?" she asked, readjusting her protective gear and clothing.

    Tango? What in the cosmos...? This sure didn't feel like dancing to her!

    "Anyway, yeah..." she decided, clearing her throat. "I guess actually learning a few moves might help before we return to free-styling."

    Maybe after learning a move or two she'd be able to deal some damage!

    "Naaaah." He scoffed playfully, fanning a hand dismissively. "Lightyear and I made it habit to just fool around and see who could top who. I mean, sure, he wanted to arrest me but sometimes we were soooo into seeing who was better we just forwent all galactic duties and just had a blast. Anyway, I'm rambling!"

    He was wont to do that whenever Lightyear was brought up...

    With another snort, he got his attention span back into the right track, and tapped a tooth reflectively upon Jo's decision.

    "Yes, yes; a few moves wouldn't do any harm. I suppose I could teach you a few, but NOT the Elthussian Death Grip, or the Gorrbic Death Grip, either; basically anything with the word 'death' in it. Those are for, ah, much more advanced players such as myself." He said smugly, pretending to polish a set of talons on his breastplate. "Now, what kind of move would you like to learn? Offensive? Defensive? By situation? Hold? Headlock? What?"

    Oooh, those moves sounded cool! She was actually kind of intrigued now, but of course he had to sound stuck-up about it and say those were only for advanced fighters. Craters.

    He gave her a list of things to choose from and she half-shrugged. "I guess we could go by situation...?"

    "Right, right, and you're going to tell me exactly what the situation is? Oh! Never mind!" He slapped his head harshly, pulling his hand down to stretch out his face wearily. "Stay here."

    He left the mat and went off into an adjacent hallway, briefly causing some ruckus and noise before reappearing with a body in arms. Or...was that a body?

    "Jo! I brought someone for you to meet today." Zurg began, setting the rubbery person on both feet, standing up straight and tall. There was a small cloth over their head, and the Evil Emperor clenched it firmly before glancing back at her with a smirk. "Jo, meet....Victor von Dummy!" He remarked, yanking off the cloth only to reveal a paper Dr. Doom mask taped to the dummy's goo-head.

    "Ahahaha! I figured you and him are at odds, so seeing someone you don't like should give you a morale boost. What do you think?" He asked. "Is it like the real thing?"

    Jo could only turn her head ever-so-slowly from the poorly-taped on paper face to Zurg's beaming, toothy grin. She couldn't believe what she was seeing, but the scene didn't change so it had to be real.

    "Victor von Dummy," she repeated. She quirked a brow at him. "Really?" she asked, crossing her arms over her chest. "Are you serious?"

    Sure, she wouldn't call herself a big fan of Dr. Doom, but really? A dummy with his face sloppily taped on it as a punching bag? She knew Zurg had a quirky sense of humor, but this was ridiculous.

    "What?" Oh, so she didn't like the idea? Well, fine. "I fight against little practice dummies with Lightyear's face plastered onto them all the time! And let me tell you, it's great for achieving an optimal level; not to mention it makes you feel good after wards." Pfffft, fighting against something with your mortal enemy's face on it did wonders in combat! But enough about that, there was some training to be had.

    "Anyway, after getting feel of your situation, my evaluation is set." He paused to muse. "You need a lot of work. So, what you're going to do, is practice punching this fine, Dummverian fellow." He gave the dummy a reassuring pat. "So come on up and give it a shot. Get a feel for pounding your fist into someone's body."

    Jo sighed and rolled her eyes, but shook her hands to get warmed up anyway. Maybe now she'd finally be able to land a good punch.

    Balling her hands into fists inside of the hand gear, she took a few steps forwards and rammed her right hand into the dummy's gut area, following it with another punch from her left, trying to focus on keeping her hits steady and hit in the same place both times.

    Swish, swish!

    Both misses.

    "Shame, shame, shame." He sighed as he leaned an elbow onto the dummy's shoulder. "A good tip to learn: most humanoid-type bodies are weak down their middles, like so." Zurg described, sliding his index finger down the jelly to indicate. "Good spots to cripple are the nose, or nasal cavity, the breastbone, stomach, or solar plexus, and the groin--as you so aptly tried to employ against me. Try to keep your punches there and try again."

    "Fine." She nodded curtly, punching her hands together, then darted forwards again.

    One punch in the face, another in the stomach, and a knee jab to the groin ought to do it; just like she did against Zurg previously.
