The Flame Of Hope
Artist: Hammerfall - Song: Hearts On Fire
Ulv watched Yoriko as she got ready, taking off her clothes and showing the wounds of her training below them. Ulv shook her head softly at this and decided some practical was best given after some theory. Walking over to Yoriko, Ulv stroked the wounds on her, and let out a sigh of disdain.
"Throwing yourself into physical activity where your body is damaged by the activity is not training. It is just being a brute. The body must be worked, but ultimately in the same state as when you went into combat. Calloused palms are acceptable at best if you are working on your direct force or weaponry. To damage yourself is the greatest failing of a martial artist"
Ulv returned to her position, took a deep breath, and then dropped into her stance.
"Now, a fist should never be made casually. Only strike with your knuckles if you are seeking to end the fight and you have an opening to do so, otherwise you should use your open palms as a strike for the same effect" Ulv told Yoriko, before stepping forward and striking out with a simple palm-strike. Her Resolve Flame burned internally to prevent it from damaging Yoriko too much, but it was still fast, and strong, and not to be taken lightly.
