PostSubject: A Fencing Frog? (Froger)   Fri May 19, 2017 8:28 am

It had been quite a while since Frogerio and Lui had last spoken. While Frog had mentioned swinging by the club on the call-out date, but it was becoming apparent that he really wasn't too eager to see the club. Lui quietly sighed as he figured he should at least try to see if he was interested in coming by. A simple no would be all that Lui needed to hear at this point.
"Frog, it's Lui. Not wanting to bother you, but are you actually coming by the club any time soon? Just let me know if you're not interested in coming/ busy with stuff."

Send. Now all Lui needed to do at this point was expect a response. As he waited, the redheaded senior member Erin plopped down beside Lui.

"Expecting someone, Captain? Another potential member, mayhaps?"

"That remains to be seen. He seems pretty bored with the idea, so he might not even be coming."

"Well, in the meantime, care for a match? I'm on a bit of a hot streak today, and I'd like to test my skills on you today."

"You're on, Erin. Let me just grab my stuff and we can begin."

By the time Frogerio would enter the clubroom, the sound of excited cheering and shouting was apparent. Two suited and masked fencers were dueling with incredible speed and ferocity, the other members cheering them on.

"Oh, a text."

Frog opened his phone quickly. It was rather out of the ordinary for him to receive a text so it's no surprise he was excited over it. When he saw it, his face dropped. He wasn't sure what he was expecting, but.......it certainly wasn't a reminder of something he promised to someone he'd do. But anyways, he had no choice now, because he had nothing else to fill his time with and, well, he wasn't comfortable lying.

"I'm coming."
He typed before picking his backpack and going towards where he assumed he'd find the club rooms.

It took him a while to locate and then navigate this part of the school he hardly knew or cared about its existence. Because he really gave barely half a shit about it. On the other hand, fencing seemed like fun. Except the stupid looking uniforms. So he stood in front of the fencing club room for a moment when he arrived at it before pushing it open.

As the fierce battle between Lui and Erin pressed on, Arthur heard Lui's phone buzz and read Frog's response. Realizing that he may be coming soon, Arthur would open the door just as Frog would push the door open. The blond first year would flinch for a moment as Frog almost slammed the door on him before introducing himself, the cheering and clanging of blades growing stronger in the background.

"W-welcome to Fencing Club. Are you... interested in joining? Our Captain's finishing up a match, so he should be with you in a minute. Come on, everyone's d-down this way."

As Arthur escorted Frog over to the matted area, the other members along with Ms. Kamizura looked in his direction for a moment. While they would quickly return to focus on the match, one sandy-brown haired student was shooting daggers in Frogerio's direction. Instructor Kamizura got up from her seat and welcomed the student.

"Ah, another new recruit? Or are you just here to watch the matches? You'll have to give us a minute; our Captain is currently in the middle of a match. It shouldn't take long, though. Seems he aims to end this quickly."

Should Frogerio looked toward the fight, it was clear one fencer was gaining ground on the other. Every offensive strike the taller swordsman made was quickly deflected by the fencer around Lui's height. Both moved with such speed and skill that the sabers seemed to cut through the wind itself. Nevertheless, it only took a moment for the taller member to meet defeat as one final deflection of the saber left an opening for the captain to land a point on his exposed chest. Both contenders removed their masks, a panting Lui being declare the victor. Turning to see Frogerio, Lui patted Erin on the shoulder before wandering over to Frog.

"Huh, you came after all. So, how was that? That's the kind of skill you'll be taught in here, Frog. So, how can I help?"

"Huh?" Frog stood dumbstruck by everything that was going on inside the room. Not only did some guy randomly almost stand in front of the door he was about to open into his face, but the rest of the club was in some state of perpetual cacophony focused somewhere deeper he couldn't yet see nor was his attention divided towards it as this guy was standing in his face.

"Captain..?" He looked at the guy whose nose he almost broke. He was escorting him into the room...and honestly, he was feeling a bit overwhelmed. His face swiveled and he crossed his hands, looking around. He barely noticed when his feet struck something a bit softer than the hard floor of the hall. When he looked up, he quickly took notice of some people who were glancing his way. What was the deal with that? It was like he could feel some animosity...but he'd never even seen the people. Whatever...if they were gonna treat him like that, then he didn't have a decision to make at all, which just made stuff easier.

"Oh, I'm just here because Lui invited me." He answered the woman. "Like, Iunno..." He looked down, kinda shying away from it all. The lack of anything else to look at directed him towards the match itself.

The match, on the other hand...there was grace in those movements. Like a series of still frames, the motions were hardly noticeable yet very much there. It was truly a display of the simplest approach-straightforwardness, without unnecessary action. And it was Lui, apparently. As he took the mask off and walked his way, Frog blinked and took a step back.

"L-Lui!" Frog said, looking surprised. "Mmm...Iunno what I'm even here for..." He added, looking away. There was clear unease on his face and the way he crossed his hands around his torso. He could never put his will into words. He wasn't comfortable telling people what he wanted, like he felt it'd be wrong or something...

(One day of working only to lose the work later... Apologies for the delay.)
Lui smirked at Frogerio's surprised reaction. If half of the students in this school were to see his performance as Frog did, maybe the club would get some real attention. This reasoning had Lui organizing a tournament between his club and the dojo to try and bring both classes to the attention of the community. He could feel confident under the mask, fighting his foe without worrying about his emotions leaking through his facial features. But now, it was time to see how Frogerio could potentially work his way into the group.

"Surprised? Heh, that's what 5 years of experience looks like, and that's the kind of training I can give you. As for why you're here, it better be to get some practice in. Otherwise, I'd just be wasting your time. Bosco, show him to the changing room. Judging by his height... do you know how much you weigh, Frogerio? Get him the medium suit in the closet; it should fit just fine. Arthur, get my training set for Frogerio.

Go get suited, Frog. Then we'll introduce you to the group."


As the blond-haired, tan-skinned Bosco motioned Frog to follow him into a side room, Bosco reached into the room beside him and grabbed a fencing suit for Frog. Handing it to him, Bosco would wait by the doorway, Arthur appearing beside him with a set of swords. Bosco decided to make a bit of talk while Frog changed, leaving the door either open or closed.

"So, Lui mentioned you were with Zaku when he brought the news to you. You know Zaku? She's a natural."

"Ga-I'm like, 66 kg. Why do you need weight for suit measurementsss-" Frog tried to answer but it was quite too late already as the order had been set and he got thrown into the dressing room with one of the horrible suits in his hands. To make matters subsequently worse, there was some guy named Bosco as his escort. He blinked brainlessly in his direction before shaking his head and sighing. "You mean the weird little girl with the sentient hair? Yeah that's the only time I ever saw her. So she was on your trainings already?" He tilted his head whilst taking his glasses off.

"Uhm so I just put this on...over everything I'm wearing?" He stared at the suit in disdain. Putting it on over the clothes seemed reasonable as the damn thing would defo  He really didn't wanna put it on.....but he'd put worse things on in his life. So he put it on and immediately came to regret it over how damn well stupid it fit, or more precisely, didn't fit him.

And he was rly uncomfortable with his regular clothes on under this.
"Uhm like are there some friggin' special clothes that go under this thing...?" He turned to the guy named Bosco. So that he knew for next time.

"You mean the weird little girl with the sentient hair? Yeah that's the only time I ever saw her. So she was on your trainings already?"
"So I'm not the only one who was seeing that, eh? Yeah, she stopped by in the last meeting. Lui had somehow convinced her to run maintenance on our weapons, that crafty devil... But yeah, soon as Gus over there started questioning her skill, she showed him up big time. Don't tell him, but I got the whole fight on my phone if you're interested.

So yeah, if Gus gives you any trouble, he's just frustrated over getting his ass kicked. Between us, I think he's just worried you'd be able to beat him too."


Bosco lightly chuckled at Froger's confusion towards the outfit. That was usually a person's reaction to putting on the outfit in thicker clothing. Wearing tight clothing such as jeans over sweatpants or shorts was a usual problem some members came across. Realizing that Frog might hear him, Bosco grabbed the sheathed swords from Arthur's expecting grasp as Arthur shuffled over to Lui again. When Frog would comment on the outfit, he would grab the fabric of Frog's suit and pull it to examine how it fit. It would seem tight at first, but it certainly wouldn't inhibit his movement. An excellent fit.

"Yep, it's just protective covering for your body, after all. Nothing especially special to wear; just helps to make sure it's not tight. Y'know, like an outfit you would wear for jogging or just general exercise. Otherwise, the fit's just right. Here's your weapons. We got the foil, an epee, and the saber. Take care of these today unless you want Zaku on your case. Now that you're suited up, come on over to the mat. Lui'd like to see you."

As Frogerio would wander over to the gathering of students, Lui would look over Frog's outfit to make sure everything was in order.
"Alright, Frogerio. Today's going to be majorly practice for the guys entering the tournament, so we'll be sparring most of today. Anyone in particular you want to practice with?"

"I know! I even tried to tape her hair but the video ended up showing nothing! Made me feel crazy. Good to know that's not the case." Frog laughed a bit. He would've laughed more had he not been putting the fencing gear on. "So like, she's actually some weird sort of modern blacksmith who can also apparently use the weapons pretty well. Sound really scary, honestly. Who knows who she even is." Frog walked over to Bosco and let him examine the outfit. He rolled his eyes when it was confirmed that this was actually how it was supposed to fit and sighed. "I guess I'll get used to it eventually..." He looked to the side and took the swords, shuddering at the mention of Zaku, and walked over to Lui.

"Hmmm. Let me spar with Gus." He said bluntly. From the start he was getting odd vibes from the fellow and really, it got on his nerves. If he wouldn't feel welcome here then it'd all be for naught. At the very least he'd lose to the guy and everything would be better.

"Which one do I use, eh?" He turned to Lui, raising the swords up in his hands. "Epee? Foil? Saber?"

"So like, she's actually some weird sort of modern blacksmith who can also apparently use the weapons pretty well. Sound really scary, honestly. Who knows who she even is."
"I'll tell you what she is; an epic swordswoman. Next time she's around, I'm sure Erin would want a chance to prove himself to Captain. He's always looking for bigger opponents to take on. Hell, Captain might be the only one to actually beat her. He's incredible in this sport..."

"Hmmm. Let me spar with Gus."

At this, Gus flared with anger for a moment before forcing himself to keep his composure through deep breaths. It seems like he had anticipated being called out for a match, but this one was supposedly new to the sport. At this point, to avoid the glare of the Captain, Gus picked up his foil and jumped to his feet from the stacked mats and beckoned him over.

"Take your foil, Frog. I need to practice up for the tournament."
As Gus trotted off to their lane, Lui stopped Frog from following for a moment as the other members resumed their training.
"If Gus is getting rather disrespectful or taking out aggressions on you, feel free to call me out. He's a bit cautious of new members, considering how he wasn't aware that Zaku was trained. Just have him run you through the basics and you can spar afterwards. He's well-trained, if a bit hotheaded."

When Frog decided to meet Gus, Gus would put his hand on Frog's shoulder to keep him in place as he gripped the foil in Frog's hand."

"Alright, kid. Let's start with your grip. Unlike a regular sword, we got something called a French grip for these things. See this handle branching off? Grip that with these fingers and point your pointer finger along this main handle.

Got it? Alright, give me a thrust. Get the feel for it."

Frog nodded, determined to do this, regardless of how Gus decided to approach. He turned to Lui and waited until he handed him the foil (since he had no idea which one of the three swords he was holding was a foil) before letting out a short chuckle. "Don't worry 'bout me. If he's disrespectful I'll just give him a whack on the head with this." He ran a finger up the foil's...'blade', and proceeded towards where Gus went.

It really didn't feel comfortable getting called a 'kid' by this...kid, but well, whatever, Frog let Gus help position him and the sword in his hand. The grip was odd but felt...right. It felt like it could work. The name 'French' added a flavour of fancyness to it on top of everything. "Thrust? Where to?" He asked, not quite sure where to aim for now that Gus showed him how to hold the foil. Not only that but the distance between them seemed too narrow to allow for a proper push, though that was probably deliberate to avoid making him put too much force into the blow. Admittedly, it made it feel more awkward and he wanted to make sure before doing anything. Gosh these suits were sweaty.

"Don't worry 'bout me. If he's disrespectful I'll just give him a whack on the head with this."

Lui gripped the tip of the foil as Frog ran his fingers along the pointed blade.

"If you're going to do that... call it a touch. But you didn't hear that from me. Lord knows I wouldn't put such a suggestion in your head."

As Frogerio got the grip comfortably set, Gus would walk off the mat to pull a dummy onto the mat, complete with a torso, head, and arms to practice touching. Setting it a distance from Frogerio, Gus would lean on the shoulder of the dummy as he spoke the instructions to the new member. This dummy was clad in a red vest that seemed to resemble the vest Frogerio wore, highlighting the torso.

"See this red vest? This is the touch zone for a foil. Not a lot, I know. I want you striking for the center of the chest here. Give the foil a bit of bend as you strike, just to make sure you land the blow. Alright, give me 10 good jabs square in the chest. After that, I'll sub in for the dummy, and we can move on to parries."

It seemed simple enough-stabbing the area on the opponent's torso. Frog looked at the dummy in question, gripping the foil tightly but confidently. It was not until he proceeded to attempt to strike the target that he realized how...difficult it was. He tried to do it as he thought it had to be done-swift and precise, with as little movement possible, but apparently, he ended up overextending his sword arm which resulted in the stab ending up slightly above the target area. The foil bent upon contact and as he pushed further, slipped out of his hand and fell to the floor.

Frog quickly picked it up and realized he forgot how to hold the thing. He looked at Gus and let out a short "Mmm...?" as an ask for help. Gus and Lui were about the find out just how difficult training a Frog up was going to be...

Gus was excited at first to see Frogerio getting the feeling for the blade, but that quickly subsided once he saw the boy's laughable attempt at touching the dummy. Not only did his touch land above the target area, but his grip quickly loosened and the foil fell from his hands. Gus wanted to sigh and rub his temples, but the observant gaze of the Captain kept him under control. Instead, he walked back to Frog again.
"Look, Frog. If you're going to learn here, you need to be able to ask for help. We rely on each other to learn. Even Captain is training with us. So, let's try this again. Make your hand like you're pointed, grip it here, now fold your pointer in..."

After Frog would regain the grip, Gus would move to his side and mimic the motion to make. A simple lean forward and an extended thrust would allow Gus to land a touch in the center of the chest.

"Got that? Just do as I do."

Frog looked at Gus in confusion, because to him, what the other just did was exactly what he'd done only moments earlier. Or well, tried to do. No, actually done. It just didn't end up being as graceful for whatever reason. Nor successful. Frog stood in his place again. "Ok, I think I can do that. Sorry for the earlier, I thought I was doing it right." He shrugged before raising the foil again. He leaned forward a few times slowly to get a feel for the aim, then the fourth time he tried going a bit faster as Gus showed him.

The blow almost struck off target again, but still managed to land within the marked area. Once again it went a bit too high up, perhaps Frog was leaning too far or moving his arm too slow, but he hit it, and that meant he could do it again if he tried.

The following blow struck above the target again. Then the one afterwards struck below it as Frog tried to alleviate his errors, taking them to the other extreme in the process. After each strike he returned to his initial position and tried again. The next strike made him feel happy, as it struck closer than any other to the middle of the chest. The next 3 struck similarly to that one. But then the following one struck above again. This was kind of harder than he thought. The moment he lost focus because he felt he'd gotten the hang of it, he missed again. He needed to stay in the present when doing this.

"Am I doing something wrong?" He asked Gus.

Gus waved off Frogerio's apology, as if to say 'no problem'. After the first few thrusts, Lui came over to observe the student in action. Although Frogerio returned to his initial position after every strike for proper practice, his form seemed to change slightly with every strike. To Lui, it seemed like Frog wasn't sure which way was the proper stance. While Gus was scratching his head to see where Frogerio wasn't getting it, Lui decided to step in.

"You have good form Frog, but you change it too radically whenever you make a mistake. You must be a fairly detail-oriented person like myself, as I too tend to get wrapped up in every move I make when I practice. Gus, I think he's had enough from the dummy. How about I stand in for it?"

"Huh? You want to train against Frog? Whatever. I'll be grabbing a drink. You two have fun."

While Gus stretched his arms over his head and walked off the mat, Lui rolled the dummy aside and pulled out his foil, standing in his ready form. With the open hand, Lui flipped the hood over his head and settled it over his face.

"Try it on me next. If your form is off, keep striking. Your mind will naturally correct your body to its proper position."
