    Self-Defence and Non-Lethal Combat



    Everyone thinks they can fight—and admittedly when pushed far enough, that's not far from the truth—but quickly and efficiently ending a fight is a whole another story. And when you have powers that can rip people apart, set them on fire, or do any number of horrible things if you are not helpful, it's sensible to learn exactly when too much is too much. Especially when people like you could be threatened for having the ability to do the previously mentioned horrible things to other people. Life's paradoxical like that.

    Class will consist of a very practical course given its nature. But don't be surprised about having written tests, though. Nothing super complicated of course because the teacher doesn't want to deal with your messy handwriting because you can only learn so much about fighting in a book. Expect training in a variety of martial arts, all sorts of punching bags, and to properly learn how to handle especial abilities in combat there are, of course, dummies designed to represent human and human-like resistance to attacks of most kinds (fear not non-humans, they can also be easily adapted to represent other species). There will also be sparring matches between students and it should go without saying any smart guy planning to take advantage of that can look forward a proper ass-kic—private class.

    Marks will be based on actual combat ability displayed (with an emphasis on the progress made), the written tests, and 'ruthlessness'. A fancy word for being smart. This is self-defence after all, monsters and bad guys won't let you take a sip from your water bottle between rounds. But of course going all out is not an option most of the time. Think more about taking advantage of distractions than going for the jugular.


    The Class
    Teacher: Jessica Drew
    Class Hours: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 16:00 to 19:00 (you'll get breaks in the middle as long as you behave)
    Pre-Requisites: This class has students with combat-geared powers in mind but those are not absolutely required at all. Everyone should at least know how to throw a punch regardless of what fancy abilities they might have. Not eating right before class is a good rule.
    Class Roster:
    • Pakko
    • Shoto Todoroki
    • Will Solace
    • Katsuki Bakugou

    This thread will serve as the brainstorming thread for this class. Students may enroll via this thread and the teacher may drop any events/projects/class ideas/etc here for discussion as well!

    Could I enrol Pakko and be added to the roster for the class? Not only is this the sort of thing he'd voluntarily sign up for, but getting to write and read sparring matches would be great.

    No way Shoto would pass a class like this up.

    Will would totally be up for this, anything to improve him combat skills and make him less useless in a fight. (fighting is not his strong suite even now after half a year of thousands of classes, but anything is better than nothing right? and this is self defence rather than actual combat which might stand him in better stead.)
