Axel was out in the abandoned building inside of Helio that he turned into his personal training grounds. It was very early in the day and he was working up a sweat already as he was practicing his sword skills. Axel had actually thought about using a different weapon as he for the most part was skilled with a large number but he decided to stick with the sword. And since he decided to stick with just swords for the time being he thought about making new techniques. He started off his technique making with really simple things this technique that he was making was just a horizontal slash.

He figured that it could do a good amount of damage if done to the right person at the right place and time. And so for the next 3 hours all Axel did was practice this horizontal slash. The sounds of the blade cutting through the air could be heard along with the sound of Axel's sweat dropping to the ground, and him panting from doing this for hours. Over and over as he swung his sword Axel said Slashing Wounds. The more he swung the sword the louder it seemed like it became as it cut through the air. One may wonder why put so much work into such a simple technique? People can imagine a mage practicing a new spell this much by why would a master of the sword practice a simple horizontal cut like this? The answer was simple, because practice makes perfect.

Practice makes perfect he said to himself over and over as he continued to swing his sword. Axel then would go take a break from his training to gather a few things from around town. The things he went and got were mostly trash and other things that people and shops no longer wanted. Why would Axel want trash the average person would wonder. Well he wanted it because it would help him with his training, because when youre alone and have no sparring partner you get creative on how you train. So Axel took all the junk and trash he had gathered and went back to the training building. Once he got back he took all his trash and junk and rigged a bunch of stuff up so that it could make a series of static and dynamic test dummies.

The static dummies were things that just sat there and took Axel's punishment and could do nothing, while the dynamic ones moved when Axel cut certain strings and such. Axel went to practice on the static dummies first however instead of practicing his horizontal slash he practiced the reverse of a move he already knew. It was a upward arc. There were 5 dummies and Axel's goal was to cut all 5 of them with upwards arcs within 6 seconds. When a person says it the feat doesnt sound so hard however a true swordsmen hell any true warrior knows nothing in combat is as easy as it seems.

Axel started his blade at the ground and then brought it straight up into the sir with great force however the swing was very slow. The upward arc was a very strong move for Axel however it had little to no effect due to how slow he was bringing the sword up. It wasnt because the sword was to heavy for Axel or anything its just that he was working against the laws of gravity and they obviously didnt like t. So Axel had to practice the move over and over so that he could do it with much more speed, he would focus on the precision later. Down, up, down, up is the motions the sword made as Axel started it on the ground and swung it high up into the air. This is something he did for at least a hour possibly even longer, he never kept track of the time when he was training.

After the hour or so he spent just doing the motion Axel got it to a battle usable speed. And now that the speed was done it was time to work on the precision and in order to do this Axel used a bunch of bad watermelons. The goal was to get the desired types of cuts into the watermelon. The first one Axel only wanted to make a shallow cut along the skin of the melon. He started the blade about a few inches in front of the melon that was suspended in air and sliced upward. The cut was just perfect as it was just deep enough for juice to come out and for Axel to see the stale looking red insides of the melon.
