I asked Dan from the guild if I could learn some type of martial art with 50 guild points.
Then Dan made a gesture and a kick pose. Apparently it was some sort of foot skill.
If it was foot skill, that means I could have a new way of attacking. If it was fist skill like straight thrust, it’d be a little complicated for me to use because that means I needed to throw away my weapon first. But if it was foot skill, I could still use it while still holding onto my sword and shield.
Therefore, I decided to spend 50 guild points to have Kai teach me martial art skill.
What Kai did was something akin to a ‘side kick’. He shortened the distance between him and the target by crossing his left and right leg alternately then he did a side kick as if his toe was the point of a blade and the wooden target was destroyed with a “DOKA!” sound.
I took off my greaves and tried to imitate him but all I could produce was a soft “bam” sound. As I thought, it was a matter of the difference between our proficiency.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Leg Sword Kick level 1.』
Apparently, I had successfully acquired the skill. I said ‘thank you’ to Kai and left the dojo.
After that, I stopped by Margo’s store to buy precious iron and hellhound pelts. My intention was to make suitable foot equipment for ‘leg sword kick’.
After finishing dinner in a haste, I holed myself up inside the blacksmith workshop to make the foot equipment. The food equipment I currently had was focused on defense so it was not suitable for ‘leg sword kick’.
In order to achieve this, I customized the original one by reinforcing the front part that would touch the enemy when I used ‘leg sword kick’ with precious iron.
CLANK CLANK CLANK CLANK SWISHHH
After several adjustments, the foot protective gear that I had reinforced with precious iron and hellhound pelts was completed.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Blacksmith level 5.』
My blacksmith level had also increased. I quickly put on my new equipment and tried to do a ‘leg sword kick’.
Yeah, not bad.
I planned on adding ‘leg sword kick’ practice into my daily regimen tomorrow.
After wiping the sweat and dirt from my blacksmithing job with a wet towel, I brushed my teeth and went to sleep together with Ash.
T/N: Those equipments must be heavy now since our MC reinforced it with iron
