    from a combat sports perspective, proficiency of technique, knowledge of the rules and being able to apply them both against an opponent.

    Crom,
    I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad, why we fought , or why we died. No, all that matters is that two stood against many. That's what's important!

    Valor pleases you Crom!So grant me one request. Grant me revenge!

    And if you do not listen, then to he11 with you!

    skill in martial arts is ability to walk out with maintained respect from a fight... skill is winning a fight without making a move. its making your opponent afraid of you after giving a single look to him... thats what i think.
