    "Good, now, for the opposite." OV, with one hand still in chamber and the other bent at the elbow, her fist level with the top of her head to the side of her. With a swiping motion she moved that arm out to the front of her, then did the same with the other. "Do that, the outside inside block. Simple, yes?"

    Jo followed as best she could, sticking out her first to the side of her and sweeping it in for the outside inside block. And she repeated, time and time again, pretending there was an actual fist coming her way with each one.

    "Craters, Overcast..." She breathed, trying to get some air. "You sound like a master in this. Are you?"

    "Nah, I only got to brown belt with two red tips. Thats pretty high up though. Next belt woulda' been the red belt, which is right under black belt." OV said with a slight smile. "IF you want we can practice this whenever you want. Just ask me and I'll be happy to help." She said.

    "Now, low block." OV went back into the original stance she showed Jo, the side that had the leg back she had her hand in chamber. Her other fist hovered over her knee. She stepped forward, and as she did her chamber hand went to her opposite shoulder then down to her knee. "Like so."

    "Wow, I'm probably....what is it, white belt?" Jo laughed, but she focused and went straight back to work. Low block? Seemed easy, too! She liked blocks! Taking the stance, Jo put her fists into chamber and stepped, blocking down near her knee and repeating until Overcast approved.

    "Good, good. Now get back into chamber. From there, swing your arm upwards, bend it at the elbow so it makes a barrier over your head. Like so. "OV demonstrated a few times. "Sound good? Good. Now you try. Next will be the suedo block. But we'll get to that when we do."

    "Okay, barrier. Got it." Jo copied and swung an arm out, pretending to block an attack from high. "Like this?" She asked, doing it again with her other arm.

    "Yeah, just like that." OV said. "Now, back to your stance, gonna do a middle suedo block." OV fist went back to that of a hand, her fingers straight out and pressed together, her thumb pressed into her open palm. "Like this." The block was much like the inside outside block from earlier. "Just do that."

    Hmmm, didn't seem too different. Jo adjusted her hand like so, and copied Overcast, doing the suedo block.

    "What exactly does this block do differently from the last one?" She asked, curious as she kept doing it.

    "Well for one, after you block you can easily grab the person's wrist or ankle and pull them in for an attack." OV said. "That would be the one steps, actually." OV grinned. "But thats for another day."

    "Ohhhh, I see!" That made sense! Jo smiled at the thought, and did another suedo block, this time with much more strength and resolve. All these moves could really come in handy! This was what she needed! "Thanks Overcast, for all the effort you're putting into me. I really appreciate it. I've...never really fought before, and all these moves help!"

    Hah, now she couldn't wait to use them in actual combat.

    "Hey, what are friends for, Jo?" OV smiled. "I'll show you one last kick, then... Then we get to the fun stuff. Then we get to sparring." OV grinned. "Now, this kick is a lot like the roundhouse. You fling you leg around, but you do like the front kick, kick out from your knee and step down. I'll show ya." OV did the kick a few times, slowly at first to show her HOW to kick, then at full speed to show her what it should look like. "This one is kinda hard too. You might lose your balance, so... Yeah." OV said.

    Ahhhh, this one seemed much harder than before, but Jo stomached it and tried. Whoosh! She lost her balance, of course, and twisted right round like a record baby, and fell onto the floor with a plop.

    "Ow....Too much torque on that one..." She mumbled, getting back up. "I'm okay! I'm okay! Just a bit dizzy, is all." She tried it again, no luck, but she didn't stop. She tried it again, and again, and again until she finally got it right, if not a bit slower than a lot of her other attempts. Just kick like a front kick and arc the leg like a roundhouse, c'mon, you can do this.

    ((Is this the crescent kick? I remember that from my own martial arts place...Uuugh, hardest kick for me.))

    OV watched. "Your getting better, Jo. Just keep at it. Don't give up." OV said. "Watch again," OV said, then she did the kick slowly to show her what to do exactly. "The more you do it the more speed you can put into it." OV said. "For now, just keep it up."

    "I won't give up, Oh Sensei." Jo chuckled, still keeping at it. She was no professional, but by the cosmos, she wasn't going to give up, either! Slowly but surely her kicks became steadier and steadier, and Jo felt a sense of accomplishment as she finally managed to do one without wobbling or teetering on her same foot. "There!" She exclaimed, doing a final one before panting, hands on her knees.

    "I...I did one kick! Whew! I'm gonna be sore in the morning..." She murmured, sweating like no tomorrow.

    ((XD It's okay. I just recall it being SO HARD. That, and the axe kick.))

    OV patted Jo's shoulder. "Great, kiddo! Your doing great! Now! Lets put this into practice, shall we?" OV asked with a grin, taking a few steps away from her and facing her again. "Your move, kiddo."
