Training on Mon Cala has been what I expect, I have already been advancing in my Sabre techniques as well as using Force Breach. When I have done the best I can with my Sabre I will be moving on to hand to hand combat. It continues to be a challenge yet it is one I do not shun, instead I look forward to the challenges.
The vipers while rather resistant to being attacked physically seem very prone to Breach attacks. Making them far easier to deal with as I work against them. The Aradiles are stronger and I have yet to actually focus Breach against them as I use my sabre on them at that moment. It is hard training but the most challenge I have had in some time while training.
I had Zains third lesson yesterday, I have been doing them when I get the chance to sit down with Zain after having spoken to his Master regarding where he is failing the most and I think he is doing far better then he was before that meeting. Now that I know where he is failing, I know where to help him improve. I think I still need to hammer home discretion but he is getting better. He has vastly advanced in handling rejection and why he struggles with open anger and we have found and addressed what causes it.
I never thought I would be a teacher, let alone be a decent one, but I think Zain is the proof that I can do well in teaching. He is a good student if at times a bit head strong, but he has great potential, I can see what Master Hohenfel does in him, I think. He is becoming more mentally mature in handling himself and dealing with issues and with a bit more time and work, I think he will make a great Jedi.
