DADA Lesson One (H)

Post by Dellen Lestrange on Tue Apr 23, 2013 1:16 am

Dellen swept into the classroom her black cloak billowing about her feet, her steps soundless as she moved. Clearing the messy room with a wave of her wand, walking around her desk she sat down in the high backed chair and placed her wand on the polished wood. Looking over her notes for today's class she looked up and smiled as the students began to file in and take there seats.

"Welcome everyone" she said sitting back in her chair "I am glad to see all of these faces, old and new." Lacing her fingers she laid her hands on the desk "Take a seat, be quick about it. I do not like tardiness and we have a lot to learn in a short amount of time."

As students settled into there seats she waved her wand and the papers on her desk descended upon them placing themselves neatly before each student, "This term we will be learning quite a bit. I am a very unconventional professor that is to say I believe in many forms of defense against the dark arts even those with your hands"

She watched as the students exchanged looks and smirked "So what do you all know about hand to hand combat?"

NOTE: This will be a role play based class. To earn credit you MUST role play.

Andromeda had been lurking around the desolate areas of the schools when she heard her homework planner yell at her to get to her next class. "Oh, yeah, thanks, Rich," she said to it as she fumbled to open it. The only way to get to class in a timely manner was to walk and read at the same time, which was very distracting. Andromeda accidentally ran over a first year Hufflepuff boy from her carelessness. "Oh, I'm so sorry!" she yelled out as her hair turned to a shade of red from emberassment. Andromeda ran her forefinger down her schedule and read that she was currently needed in her Defense Against the Dark Arts class. "Oh, yeah!" she shouted out as she stuffed her agenda back into her bag and her hair turned a dark purple from confidence. "I've been waiting for this." Andromeda eventually reached the class, perfectly on time, and nodded to the professor respectfully. She looks professional, she said to herself as she took her seat as the early bird.

Jocelyn was sitting in the middle of the classroom, Jocelyn found her head of house dangerious but awesome, she looked up at professor when she asked a question about hand to hand combat, Jocelyn had heard of it but she never tried it and her parents never taught her any of the hand to hand combat. Jocelyn was thinking hard but only came up with one boxing.

Jocelyn raised her hand but did not wait for the professor's approval. "I only know of boxing, professor. Boxing is with two people who uses speed, strength and reflexes by throwing punches with gloved hands in a contest." Jocelyn was unsure if what she said was right.

Eric had taken a seat in the second row. He sat up as Professor Lestrange who was also Head of Slytherin began to speak. He took in every word and took out of parchment to take any important notes. He knew of a few hand to hand combat styles from his mother who was muggle-born. When Jocelyn raised her hand and said "Boxing" he frowned this was one of three styles he knew. He raised his hand and shouted out "I heard of Karate and Wrestling. I think Karate is all kicks and I'm not sure of there is punching involved and requires more intelligence and speed rather than power. Wrestling is full of grabbing pulling people to the floor and is mainly focused on strength."

Post by Severus Snape on Thu Apr 25, 2013 8:04 am

Severus was sitting in the front row of the class, as always and was eagerly following his Head of House's words. She was very competend, he knew her from the years before, though he had to admit to find it unusual to start the term with talking about non-magical fighting skills.
Shaking his head, he thought of what he read in books and raised his hand. "There are several kinds of combat sports people can learn, normally they origin in different countries. Like Judo and Karate from Japan or Kung Fu from China. There is also ninjutsu, a combat style the ninja's in japan practiced." he told his Professor.
"But they are useful for different people I guess. Like boxing would be good for strong people, while karate can also help children to defend themselves. I think I like Ninjutsu best, because it requires stealth and speed more than just power and strenght. And because they learn more than just unarmed combat, but also how to handle weapons, how to ride horses and how to escape and conceal which is also useful in a fight. " Severus said all that with a thoughful expression. He had never practiced any of those combat styles, but if he would have to chose one, Ninjutsu would definitely be it.

"fifteen points Severus very detailed i am impressed and ten Jocelyn thank you for being so respectful" Dellen said leaving her cloak on her chair she walked around the front of her desk "Hand to hand combat is useful for even a wizard because when you become disarmed and do not trouble yourself into thinking you cannot be disarmed you are open for attack but what if you could get close enough to continue to defend yourself."

She wrote the forms of fighting mentioned on the chalk board "I find many professors forget that this is a class about defense first and formost and we will learn to use your wand as an extension of your arm along with your body being as much as a weapon as your wand or your mind"

With a wave of her wand the desks were pressed up against the wall the students out of harms way "to demonstrate what I mean exactly I have invited Professor Prince to join us for a little show and tell"

Marvolo glanced at the black haired boy as the desks settled against the wall. She found herself sitting next to Snape and was silently thankful that she wont have to listen to the other students from this vantage point. Looking forward she watched with a small smile ad the professor took the floor and introduced her colleague, this was sure to be interesting.

A clock chimed somewhere in the castle and Elija cast a tempus charm to check the time. With a sigh he got up and left his office where he had been working on preparing a test for his upper class students.
Walking swiftly, he neared the defense classroom with long strides where the lesson had already started. His colleague had requested of him to join her in a little demonstration and he had easily agreed to it, as defense was one of his favourite subjects to study.

With a flick of his wand the door opened and Elija stalked up to the other teacher who was standing at the front of the room. A small area was cleared in the middle of the room as the students found themselves sitting close by the walls.
"Professor Lestrange." he nodded at her politely and stood beside her. She was the Professor in charge here, so he would let her have the stage and inform the studens of what was going to happen.

"You will witness us duel, it will be simple neither of us will aim to harm the other just disarm and once disarmed whomever it is first disarmed that is will fight back using there knowledge of combat, I am one hundred and twenty years old I have been using hand to hand combat for quite some time, Professor Prince I have been told has been adept since his childhood so pay close attention to what you see because you will be learning it later, ah and we shall be forsaking any use of non verbal spells as to make this demonstration easier to follow." she said to the class, smiling as Elija joined her.

"Now then shall we begin Elija?" she said crossing the empty space and taking a bow she held her wand aloft. With a flick of her wrist she cast "Levi corpus"

A smirk slipped onto his face as he bowed slightly towards his colleague. A duel with her would surely be interesting, he thought and reased his wand, waiting for her to cast her first spell.
His knees were slightly bent and he was leaning forward a bit, so if he should be to slow to block a spell, he could roll over to ground to avoid being hit by it. Also this position allowed him to move more agile than if he stood up straight.

When he saw her spell speeding towards him, he incanted "Protego!" to conjure a bright shield which would block the her spell. As it bounced of his shield, Elija quickly flicked his wand and called "Obscuro!" following this with an "Expelliarmus!"
If he would manage to disarm her, he would have the upper hand, as long as he stayed out of her reach.

Caught off guard she quickly raised the protection charm narrowly missing the blindfold and the disarming charm "Playing dirty are we?" she said with a soft laugh "Class i hope you noticed what technique professor Prince used, points to whomever can give me the word that follows the definition a number of projectiles fired at one time"

Regaining composure she conjured her favorite spell "incindio" she said sending a whip of fire in his direction.

A chuckle slipped out of his mouth, as Elija listened to his colleague talk to her class. He risked a short glance to the students and noticed that they were intendly watching them as they demonstrated how to duel. Well, they would soon see that a duel was more than just shouting spells at each other. One needed a strategy, quick reflexes and some luck to win a fight against a worthy opponent.

Out of the corner of his eyes, Elija watched the fire come soaring into his direction. A shield would take up to much of his power, so he decided on the easier way and cast the flame freezing charm "Congelo Flamma!", so when the fire reached him, they only tickled slightly instead of burning him.
Moving his wand in a smooth way, he didn't wait for the other professor to think of the next spell and incanted "Stupefy!", sending his hex towards her.

Her eyes widened as she saw the spell aimed for her come flying at her face taking two steps as if to meet the spell she dropped to a knee sliding under it as it slammed into the wall behind her splintering the frame of a mirror causing the fragile glass to fall to the ground.

Paying no mind to the students watching she brought up her wand "expelliarmous!"

Jocelyn felt not so comfortable around the two teachers dueling each other, she held her book tightly to her chest and at the fire she closed her eyes, the fire reminded her too much at a horrible event she was at, killing several people she knew. Dueling class was for her something she needed to learn again, she was too scared after the fire and to see how some of her beloved family members died. Jocelyn took deep breaths to calm herself down but it didn't work. Jocelyn decided that she was going to leave the room. Once out of the classroom Jocelyn sat down against the wall, the bad memories came back. She saw how her grandma was trying to protect her but she died from the fire letting Jocelyn on her own to find the exit. Jocelyn shivered at the memories and stated at the wall in front of her.

Severus was watching the two head of houses duel each other with fascination. He could tell that both of them were very experienced duellers and he made up his mind to practice hard to match them in power and skill one day.
His dark eyes followed the movement of his Professor as she dodged her colleague's spell, a strong stunning hex which blasted parts of the wall when it missed it's target. A dark chuckled told of his amusement when he saw one of the first years leave the room in fear. Pity, now she would miss the show, he thought smirking.

Celania watched with rapt attention, her eyes flicking from one to the other as her professors cast spells back and forth. Her excitement only grew when a spell shattered something to her far left. A slow grin spread across her face and she shook her head as the first year from flight class got up and left looking shaken. She didn't spend too much time on it and turned her gaze back to the professors.

Seeing that the disarming spell was approaching him quickly, Elija swallowed a curse. It wouldn't do for his students to get the wrong impression of him. Instead, he ducked to the side, narrowly avoiding the hex, though the power of it flying past, made him stumble a bit. Out of the corner of his eye he saw a student leaving and thought it might be the young Slytherin first year.

Throwing up his wandhand, he cast "Everte statum" at his colleague. While he watched his spell head towards her, he rightened himself again and prepared for her next attack.

Dellen felt the spell hit her head on causing her to be thrown to her back with a thud, winded she got to her feet and shook out her limbs, looking around she realized her wand had been sent in his direction from the impact of the spell, this was much more entertaining then she had anticipated she had thought that her younger counterpart would have been done for. She was happily proven wrong, running at him fist clenched she prepared to send a punch to his abdomen.

An amused and satisfied smirk slipped onto his face as his spell hit home. The woman got thrown backwards, wand falling out of her hand as well. Watching her wand roll towards him, he put his foot down on it slightly in a victerious fashion.
Nevertheless, it was not long lived, as his colleague pulled herself back to her feet with a speed he had not expected. The look in her eyes as she ran at him told him that she was enjoying their little duel just as much as he did. With a flick of his hand, his wand slipped into his pocket and he prepared himself for the physical fight. Elija tensed up his muscles, so her punch wouldn't catch him off-guard.

As her fist made impact her smirk turned to an annoyed frown at his lack of reaction. Unfolding her fist she slipped behind him, her fingers danced to his waist and caught hold of his wand deftly slipping it from his pocket she took a few steps back. Summoning her wand to her free hand she held the two wands in each hand.

An annoyed expression came onto his face when his colleague took his wand, but then again, she was just being Slytherin. Sometimes, Elija just should think more like one as well.
Nevertheless, he would not let her got off so easily, so while she summoned her wand, he moved backwards smoothly, bringing up his ellbow to slam it onto her side.
Then he moved around her, grasping her arms from behind and pulling her close to his chest.

Scowling as she felt her arms being brought tightly around her back, her shoulders burned from the sudden movement but she smirked when her hands tightened on the wands, jabbing her wand into his side she said "Stupefy"

"Urg..." a groan escaped his mouth as Elija was being hit by the stunning spell and blasted backwards a few meters. Black dots were dancing in front of his eyes, but he managed to fight off unconsciousness, but only just.
Shaking his head, Elija got up and steadied himself on the wall. He smirked at his colleauge and nodded slightly. "Good move, Professor. I feel you have won this duel." he said smoothly.
Next time, he was not going to put away his wand before the duel was won... by him.

Eric could not keep his eyes of the two professors as they duelled. He watched their every move and took down one of the spells which was used that he never heard before. He frowned when Professor Lestrange took her wand back when Professor Prince had put his away. Then again she was a Slytherin and that was to be expected also in a real fight it would probably be the smart thing to do. He had guessed the outcome correctly but Professor Prince had done much better than he expected.

Dellen returned his smile though her body was still ever so tense, it was hard for her to relax after a duel whether it be friendly or not she had learned the hard way to be vigilant of all around her. "It's been quite some time since someone has given me such a fight Elija" she said to him "I look forward to next time" she winked before turning to the class 'Right then i hope you all paid close attention, for next class I wish you to hand in a piece of Homework covering what you saw here to day. Just a summary of the duel between us and one instance in which you would have acted differently, until then Class dismissed."
