Impa had chosen to wear simple garbs for her journey to the courtyard. Understanding that obviously, she would not need defence, lest she was unskilled enough to strike her own body with her weapon, Impa had dressed herself in a simple, sleeveless black vest which exposed most of her arms and a portion of her back-which was in turn covered by a thick black cloak-along with simple back pants and sandals. It was clear that this wardrobe optimized her speed, something which would help her execute her attacks.

Today, the Sheikah would be practising with her magic weapon, the Spear of Infinity, which she carried on her back. The weapons unique ability gave it a just as unique fighting style, which would be difficult to master without proper training, which is what Impa planned to do today. She would ensure that she could protect The Princess as efficiently as possible.

The Sheikah stopped the moment she strode out of the castle, her foot crunching on soft grass belonging to the courtyard. Despite being smaller than one would expect for the royal courtyard, it was very prim and proper, square-shaped with evenly sized grass, blowing to the side with the breeze. Impa closed her eyes for a moment, taking in the scenery before her. It was no secret that she lived most of her life in the castle, so moments like these were most pleasant. Standing still, Impa allowed herself to take in every noise, every breeze, every blade of grass brushing against her leg. Everything felt so fresh. Impa opened her yes.

Dummies were usually laid out in a straight line near the back of the yard, meaning that someone had either forgotten to do so or was slacking, because Impa saw no dummies before her. Not even letting out a sigh, she turned and went back into the castle. A few moments later, Impa returned, placing the last of three dummies on the far right of the field. Each were equidistant from each other, all with marks on their chest and heads, areas Impa would try to strike

She reached for the Spear of Infinity, which rest on her back, an took it in her right hand, feeling the weight and firmness of the weapon. It was well crafted, and would not falter, at least not here. Confident in her instrument, the warrior raised it above her head and, placing her other arm on it, began to spin it. At first the movement was slow, but it began to gain speed, the blade of the weapon cutting the air as it circled above Impa. Soon, it began to simply become a disk in the air, a blur.

Her eyes were narrow slits, piercing the soulless dummies in front of her. To her, this was not training, this was a real battle. As her blade gathered momentum, the Sheikah looked at all three dummies. She would aim for the head. Every single time.

Suddenly, Impa released one hand, swiping her spear in the direction of the left dummy. As her spear sliced sideways, it extended to a length of three meters.

Impa heard a small ripping noise. Her eyes darted to the source, to the left dummy's head. Her spear had made a small scar across the red mar, but had dealt no significant damage. A miscalculation on the Sheikah's part. Adapting quickly to this predicament, Impa let her spear's momentum carry her body, spinning with the weapon and extended it to it's maximum length. With a quick jerk of her arms, the spear was thrust into the chest of the dummy, right in the centre of the large red circle.

Though the other two dummies stood rigid and still, Impa visualised them closing in on her, using their fallen comrade as an opportunity, an opening. Impa turned her body to face them, her scarf swaying behind her.Her mind imagined the dummies to be soldiers, or monsters, closing in on her. Glad she chose an outfit that optimized speed, Impa quickly jumped back. Her spear shrunk back to it's original side, grasped firmly by the Sheikah's right hand.

This "fight" was over. Impa charged forward, her pace swift and nimble, her steps so light they were barely heard. As she moved towards the dummies, her other hand grasped her spear, bringing it over her head. Once she approached the dummy in the centre, she arced the spear down, slashing deep into the dummy's shoulder. Straws flew out of the large rip, slightly obscuring Impa's vision. Quickly swatting them away with her hand, Impa cut clean through the dummy, it's top half falling to the ground.

Turning her attention to the final dummy, the one to the right, Impa struck it's head with the edge of the pole, a blow which, if applied to a real foe, would probably stun them for at least a few seconds, enough for Impa to execute the finishing blow. She lunged past the dummy, the blade of her spear trailing behind her. Swinging her spear, Impa heard one last rip as the dummy's head rolled on the floor.
