Avinalora stood in the center of a clearing, her right foot planted in front of her left foot placed firmly in the soft ground behind her. The moonwashed maiden was not dressed in her usually garb due to the garments not being appropriate for training. Instead, she wore cloth pants and a shirt and her clothes were neatly folded and placed on a rock along with her satchel.

The reason for this scenario was Avinalora's desire to rely less on others and more on herself. She decided to learn how to fight in her Optime form for many reasons. First of all was that many Luperci preferred to be in their Optime forms and would probably also fight in that form. She acknowledged the fact that she didn't need to learn to fight other creatures because as long as she maintained distance, the creature was no threat to her. Lastly, she could come up with many scenarios where this training would come in handy.

The jackal was being taught by an old acquaintance by the name of Toboe. He was a coyote-jackal mixture that knew several different martial arts and had some experience with training those with physical impairments. He was currently teaching her a type of martial art which was a modified form of Aikido.

The training had two days before. The first day consisted of Avinalora learning how to fall, roll, and footwork. The second day was composed of Avinalora learning the holds. Today, they would be learning a few techniques that would free Avinalora from a grab to her wrist. The training wasn't easy but Avinalora was learning.

Toboe held her slender wrist in a firm hold. Avinalora made a spiraling motion with her hand and at the same time moved so that she was right next to Toboe. Then, she moved her arms and waist together towards Toboe, knocking him down.

"You're a fast learner." The brown furred male commented as he got up. "That only took you three tries to learn!"

The two worked on several other techniques before they ended the day. Tomorrow, Avinalora would learn to defend against punching attacks. Toboe left after giving her the task to practice before the next meet up.
