Oh nice! The warders are picking up! I liked them too, though I've not made a warder character. I don't think I could pull it off.

What kind of MA do you do?

neat! I was in a little known form of kung fu for a number of years. I got to purple belt (half way) and was about to go for belt test, but other things in life made me have to walk away from it. Due to a number of pour decisions I am not able to go back, though I wish I could. I miss it.

It is a great hobby, and gives wonderful skills! I've never heard of Harpikido or Krav Maga but I was in some tournies with some Tae Kwon Do places.

Harpikido is a judo type martial art lots of throws holds and breaks. And Krav maga is the Israeli defense forces martial art very fast very effective if a little unfair it works well for multiple advesaries.

Ooh that's interesting! Like Elgee said, it will be really cool to see you RP out this stuff with all your knowledge.

devon is the Warder's DL. The leader of the Warder's RP Group. So yes, he is pretty heavily affiliated with them!

Don't worry, Swordsworn, I don't think Devon is offended. And welcome to the PSW.
I'm a black belt broomswoman! I kid you not, that's how I became a Blademaster in the Band over on the social side. One of my tests was to create swordforms and my trusted broom delivered beautifully :happy:


So you got me curious and I looked up Harpikido, but only found Hapkido. Is this the same thing or something else?

Yes it is the same, some people spell it differentially but it is the same martial art. Brooms are very effective weapons in the right hands.

true, I bet Chan could do miracles with the thing. I don't have the right hands though, just a vivid imagination ;)
