Training sessions

Hi! My name is Coldhawk and this page is for patrol stuff such as attack moves you need to know if you are in a training session or you have a question on a move for an apprentice. You can use the info here to quiz your apprentice for assessment too! Take a look over it. We have one more page, but I'll let the medicine cat take this one. I hope to see you around and hope you enjoyed the tour! Bye!

Fighting Moves

This is a list of moves to choose from when working with your mentor or going for assessment. Just choose one to work on and tell your mentor how you are doing it in comments as usual. They will decide if it's correct. Remember, not every cat gets it right on the first try!

Back Kick

Explosive surprise move to catch opponent from behind.  Judge opponent's distance from you carefully; then lash out with your back legs, taking your weight on your front paws.


Belly Rake

A fight-stopper.  Slice with unsheathed claws across soft flesh of opponent's belly.  If you're pinned down, the belly rake quickly puts you back in control.


Front Paw Blow

Frontal attack.  Bring your front paw down hard on your opponent's head.  Claws sheathed.


Front Paw Strike

Frontal attack.  Slice downward with your front paw at the body or face of your opponent.  Claws unsheathed. 


Killing Bite

A death blow to the back of the neck.  quick and silent and sometimes considered dishonorable.  Used only as a last resort.



Ideal for a small cat facing a large opponent.  Spring onto opponent's back and grip with unsheathed claws.  Now you are beyond the range of your opponent's paws and in position to inflict sever body wounds.  A group of apprentices can defeat a large and dangerous warrior in this way.  Watch for the drop-and-roll counter move, and try to jump free before you get squashed.


Partner Fighting

Warriors who have trained and fought together will often instinctively fall into a pared defensive position, each protecting the others back while fending off an opponent on either side.  Slashing, clawing, and leaping together, battle pairs can be a whirlwind of danger for attackers.


Play Dead

Effective in a tight situation, such as when you are pinned.  Stop struggling and go limp.  When your opponent relaxes his grip, thinking you are defeated, push yourself up explosively.  This will throw off and unwary opponent and put you in an attacking position.


Scruff Shake

Secure a strong teeth grip in the scruff of your opponent's neck; then shake violently until he or she is too rattled to fight back.  Most effective against rats, which are small enough to throw.  A strong throw will stun or kill them.


Teeth grip

Target your opponent's extremities--the legs, tail scruff, or ears--and sink in your teeth and hold.  This move is similar to the leap-and-hold except your claws remain free to fight.


Upright Lock

Final, crushing move on already weakened opponent.  Rear up on back legs and bring full weight down on opponent.  If opponent does the same, wrestle and flip him under you.  This move makes you vulnerable to the belly rake, so requires great strength and speed.
