History

The Guardian Disciplines were created long ago by a group of the first Hunters and Huntresses.  These styles reflected upon the weapons of the Guardian Masters: Sword, Dual Swords and Staff.  These three different weapons created the three different styles named after the three masters.  Ashen for Dual Swords, Onyx for Sword and Ivory for Staff users.  Since then, the Guardian Disciplines have evolved and changed and different variations of the Disciplines have been created.

Training

The training involved for the various Disciplines vary.  The Basic Forms are easy to learn within five months of practice.  But, the Advanced and Master Forms are much harder to master.  It usually takes 2 years to use the Advance Forms.  Then, it takes even longer for the Master Styles to be learned.  Most students don’t even attempt the Master Forms, but those who do are considerably stronger than most in the Disciplines.  While there are some users known to blend from one style to another, most students under the Disciplines truly are inclined to just one style.  Most training begins at the age of ten and most don’t pass the Advance forms until age 13.  However, there have been special cases.

Onyx Forms

Basic Forms

The Onyx style refers to one-handed sword techniques, but can be appilcable to sword and shield users as well as two-handed sword users.  The Onyx basic forms can be translated into any of these styles, as it is simply learning sword cuts as well as simple defenses with the sword.

Advance Forms

In the Advanced Forms, we see the splitting of the styles.  Single sword, one-handed users rely more on acrobatics as well as speed to deal with an opponent and the moves.

Master Forms

Ashen Forms

Basic Forms

The Ashen Style focuses on using two-one handed swords and draws a lot on the singular motions of the Onyx style.  Ashen style is used in larger groups, with two swords able to attack at the same time.  It relies heavily on physical strength and dexterity as well as good motor control.  Most students learn the X-slash and other basic swords slashes as they build up left and right arm strength and control.

Advance Forms

With the basic known movements of attack and defense learned in Basic Forms, Advanced adds much more unique dynamics into the mix of attacks.  Now, the user must train their body to use a much more athletic approach in their combat.  Now, a new move in introduced into the mix.  Dual Kata is a series of X-Slashes, whirlwind like movements and other moves designed to overwhelm an oppenent with incredible speed and power, contuinuing to pound on their defense until a hole is force open in which the user can dispatch their foes.

Master Forms

This is where the Ashen style is known for, the Dual Reverse Grip.  Its a powerful and quick style, much like the Master Reverse Grip form of the Onyx Forms.  This allows the user to adopt a more aggressive approach as he is able to run and slash much easier as well as to rush an opponent.  This style and its moves, however, are incredibly difficult to master.  They use more physical movement and incredible dexterity as well as total mastery over the Advanced Forms as the techniques in Master often link with the moves of the Advanced Forms.

The major move is Ashen's Storm, an extra set of moves that are added to the beginning and end of the Dual Kata starting with a reversed slash and a series of blows and at the end of the Kata is a reveresed X-Slash.  It is known to be a powerful Kata.
