Law hadn't expected that to work out so smoothly. He was actually fairly proud of that, until the reason why it had been so simple became apparent, and rather quickly at that. As Ulv spoke and raised her eyebrow at him he raised his own in turn, giving her the same quizzical look.
"Yes, I'd like to see the style, but that doesn't mean I'm going to stand here and be a punching bag. It's called an exhibition fight
for a reason. If I only wanted to see your moves I'd ask you to demonstrate them on a dummy, but I also want to see how they actually work in combat. I want to see how I can react to them, and I want to test myself. Perhaps we haven't communicated as effectively as we could have. And excuse me if I'm wrong, but you really don't seem to be the worse for wear."
Law honestly hadn't intended to be disrespectful or rude (for once), it was a simple case of miscommunication, which was easily resolved. His hand actually hurt like a motherfucker though, maybe that hadn't been the best target to aim for. The urge to shake it out found itself nudging its way into his mind, but he ignored that. In the future he would aim for softer targets.
"If you'd like, we can tone down the level of aggression, but that's not generally something that I do, so my own capabilities may suffer for it. My attacks are meant to cause the most damage they can in the shortest amount of time, and generally involve combos such as the one you've just seen. I'm not very well versed in holding back, but I'll leave it up to you."
As he spoke he'd repositioned himself slightly, so that they were at a more comfortable speaking distance. Whatever Ulv decided she'd like to do was fine by him, although he was hoping that they could have a more interesting encounter than just a display of technique.
