“Ki. You all know what it is: the energy within every living being,” Beryl said to a large gathering of listening Namekians. He was conducting a martial arts lesson to the general public. If anyone wanted to attend, then they could show up with no questions asked. “Ki is composed of three parts: Genki, Energy; Yuki, Courage; and Shoki, Mind. These three parts combine and manifest into ki – the energy that you all have the ability to manipulate freely. You are able to even use it as a source of raw, external energy. Beams, blasts, discs, barriers, healing and so much more – all of these things are possible because of ki.” There was a pause. “Anyone can learn to use ki. However—“
There was a pause. “There are some who have it much harder than others when it comes to using ki. I am one of those individuals. Normally, that means this person is doomed whenever they are faced against an opponent who is skilled at utilizing ki. So, how does someone like me stand a chance against all of you here?”
There was another pause. Many pairs of Namekian eyes were glued onto the Galactic Patrol leader. Beryl finally spoke. “It’s simple. I focus on improving both my physical and mental strength. There is only so much ki that the body can hold and how much the body can hold depends on the strength of the body and the strength of the mind. What happens is that many become too comfortable with using ki within combat; they very rarely rely on their own physical and mental strength. I’m the opposite. Since I cannot use ki in battle, I have devoted all of my time and energy into refining my mind and body to where basic martial arts are enough to keep myself safe.”
The dark-skinned human nodded once, stylish shades shielding his dark-brown eyes. His garb was business casual: a green, collared shirt, black tie, black pants, black dress shoes and a large, yellow beanie. A fancy, golden badge was pinned to his shirt, fashioned in the Galactic Patrol's symbol. A gem-studded crown decorated the badge as well - a symbol of Beryl's leader status. “And that’s what I hope to help you all with. I think that if you all can improve in your physical combat, you will become more developed and prepared fighters. Just imagine the effect once you combine it with your natural ki abilities.” Beryl scanned the crowd of Namekians. “Now, would anyone like to spar with me? It’ll be for a demonstration.”
Silence. The Namekians looked at one another, all of them extremely apprehensive to try their luck against Beryl. The space police leader frowned slightly, a bit disappointed. “No one?”
