Dragonball Training Manual- Part V
Yet more training tips from the DB universe-
Piccolo and Gohan
I lumped these two together since they spent most of their time training together. Gohan’s early training very much simulates Goku’s training while looking for the dragonballs: a lot of running, swimming, and climbing. Since, we’ve covered that once, we’ll let it go this time.
Sparring For the Win!
This is pretty much all these two did, which is why it’s covered here, instead of earlier. There was sparring previously, but not to this extent. Piccolo beat the living hell out of Gohan during the time they trained together and Gohan tried to reciprocate. Thus, let’s discuss sparring.
First, I recommend you get some sparring gear. That means, at the very least, some gloves and a mouthpiece. Otherwise, you won’t be very pretty for very long and you might get seriously hurt while training, which is never good. You can get foot gear, shin guards, head gear, and body gear if you like, but it is not necessary.
When you’re ready and you have a willing training partner, you guys can start sparring, but that doesn’t mean you have to try to tear each other’s head off (at least, not all the time). Sometimes, light or mid-range sparring is good for developing confidence, skill, and bodily awareness. If you constantly get pummeled in sparring sessions, you’ll probably get frustrated and you won’t grow as fast. Also, try to spar with different people, so you don’t get used to fighting the same person. When you get good, maybe you can even fight two people. But only when you get good.
Tien, Krillin, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu
While waiting for the Saiyans to arrive on Earth, the rest of the gang went off to Kami’s to train the way Goku did way back when. So, unfortunately, we don’t get anything knew from the rest of our friends, here.
