Spiral Training School Information

Diarmuid's fighting/training school, Spiral, is located in a building/warehouse near to the Police Station (either behind or beside, wherever there is space once the new maps are drawn up). Most of the building will be an open training area that can be used for all kinds of weapons/hand-to-hand defense training as well has having several smaller rooms for more specialized training, since he hopes to get someone with magical talents to train those who want training in that kind of fighting as well.

All of the usual training things like punching bags and the such will be there. In addition, there will be some odd features in the training area in the form of some hanging rings, several tall poles, and balance beams. It obvious someone has a bias for acrobatic fighting styles and it's showing.

In addition to the training areas, there will be some small rooms where teachers and students can crash for the night. The rooms aren't going to be anything fancy, but they are there. Each room will contain a bed, a desk, a dresser, and some shelves. More things can be added on request, but the rooms are pretty small so there is only so much space. Diarmuid will also be building a small loft up in the corner of the building to serve as his own 'living' space. Considering how much effort he's making to fix the school up so that it will be usable by any fighter who wants to use it no matter their skill level or chosen fighting style, it is as much his home as any place else ever will be.

Despite the fact that the school is meant to teach fighting, the atmosphere is very open and relaxed. There is a bathroom with tub/shower in the back, along with a small but well stocked kitchen. And, as if to reflect it's name, most of the decorations have some kind of Celtic spiral theme to them. The walls also have several posters on them that hold information about the other training areas in the city.

3 rooms for training classes, 8 rooms to be used for people to sleep/rest in, plus the main large training area.


People who have requested a room at the school for either full time or part time use:

  • FT-Afonso (And his dog.)
Note: After Yuna left the city, her duckling, Sir Auron, and her kitten, Lulu, remained at the school.  Celty's duck, Shizuo, also remained at the school when she left.
People who have expressed interest in teaching or being a student at the school:
  • Diarmuid (Spears, Swords, Shields, hand-to-hand etc.)
  • England (Ranged weapons, especially archery.)
  • Kakyoin
  • Vergil (Magic)
  • Lisa Lisa (Hamon, combat)

  • Afonso de Silva

You can add Steve to the list of possible teachers. He's proficient in a variety of martial arts hand-to-hand styles.

Ishimaru would like to request an extended stay at Spiral, and thus a temporary room!

I read on the residences page that Diarmuid might want someone that can help train with magic. Vergil's pretty accomplished when it comes to using magic, and he's a practitioner of Iaido, if either of those are something that could be useful to the school. Here's a basic moveset video for him, for anyone curious.

That sounds great! :D

Do you think we should do a thread where these two meet and discuss the possibility of Vergil working there? I'm sure he would have been drawn to the training school more than once, whether or not he could actually train yet due to his injuries (which are clearing up enough for him to actually start using magic and stuff again).

That sounds good to me! :) I'm equally flexible, so I'd be good with either! I'll go ahead and write up a thing in his inbox, since I rarely do inbox things.

I suppose it'd be a good idea to actually put this down in writing somewhere - I've been assuming that Jotaro just sort of...attached on to Kakyoin and has been hanging around him since his arrival, so he would've been around the school like a huge delinquent in that capacity!

Is it fair game to assume that anyone's invited to come in and work out on the punching bags and whatnot, or do they have to be an enrolled student first?
starmark: (COCKY ☆ ohhh now you fucked up)

YEAH IT OCCURRED TO ME IN RETROSPECT THAT HE JUST KIND OF...showed up and didn't leave, good hustle Jotaro.

Thank you, I appreciate it!

Just wondering if it would be okay for Julian to wander into the school and get some practice done…? It's quite likely he'd step in, since as soon as he has a good map of the area put to memory [from the nearby police station] he'd be drawn to the place listed for combat training.

He'd also be interested in being taught by Diarmuid – and perhaps England.

Thanks for the confirmation!

Julian would probably want to work on his swordsmanship primarily, more so than anything else. He's decent, probably better than one would expect on a first impression, but he'd appreciate a third perspective on his skills and ways to improve.

Now that I think about it, he wouldn't want to trouble England with teaching him how to use ranged weapons, seeing as he only has the miniature grenade launcher that is his uncle's revolver – it's not designed to be effective beyond point-shooting range.

That works for me! I don't think I'll specifically log Julian's first time entering the school, but I'd probably use the school as a starting point for a thread in the future.

While Julian is ambidextrous, he favours his left hand – and until he sees Diarmuid (or somebody else) using two swords at the same time in the school, he'll stick to using one himself. He does only have the one sword on him currently. Though, he might try switching which hand he's holding the blade in during a simulated fight.

I very well might change my mind later about Julian learning to use ranged weapons, we'll see. =)
