    With an eager nod to Korra's echoing of his suggestion and subsequent grin, Sokka was glad to see that she liked the idea of earth boomerangs. He'd likely have to teach her how to use his own boomerang first so that she'd be able to get a good feel for the weapon, but that would not be a problem at all. Grinning himself at her exclamation, he managed to give her a quick thumbs up as he noted, "I'd be glad to! We can call that the focus of one of our next training sessions!"

    As far as Korra's first try with her earthbending armor went, Sokka couldn't help but grin further. "Not bad at all." The blows he might sustain whilst she had this up were bound to smart a bit more, but he knew he could handle it. After all, he'd been able to withstand much stronger earthbending attacks both in training sessions and battle, and he was set to put that experience to good use here. Set to leap right back into this as Korra called out for them to do this thing, Sokka found that whilst his first sword strike managed to chip away at some of the armor, the second missed completely as the Avatar used a skillful bending-based dodge. "Oh-ho, nicely done!" Undeterred, he simply grinned and readied his stance again, set to go on the defensive before his next charge.

    Korra was the first to charge here, and as Sokka realized that she was set to throw punches with her currently armored arms, he was quick to try and evade her trio of strikes. He wasn't able to get out of the way of the first one in time, soon finding his left side throbbing from the impact. "Rrgh!" It wasn't enough to slow him down though, and he deftly sidestepped the second and ducked the third strike. "The important thing is you've got it up now!" Whether it stayed up that much longer or not was yet to be seen, but the practice that it was giving both of them was great.

    Quickly jumping up from where he'd ducked Korra's last attack, Sokka struck at the her side with his sword, just before spinning around and throwing two more slashes at her shoulders. "HAH!" He was able to put a little more into his swings as long as her armor was up, but even so, he was not aiming to hurt her. Whether he connected or not, he made sure to be ready to dodge whatever she threw at him next.

    "Sounds like a plan to me!" She shot back to him, grinning beneath the Earth armor. Getting to hurl pieces of Earth and having them circle back to her like a boomerang, not gonna lie, it was a great idea! Might take some training to get it down, but she was ready to train! She'd train like no one's business. If it went anything like this session, she was sure she was going to enjoy it.

    The armor was working like a charm, though Korra was only slightly worried about Sokka. So long as she didn't hurl giant blocks of Earth at his head, he'd be fine, right? After all, he fought and trained with Toph! Korra had never met her herself, but she'd heard enough about her to know she could be kinda merciless. And if Lin was any indication, she might not have been the cheeriest Earthbender around either. As she avoided his strike, he complimented her. "Thanks!" She had charged forward herself and sent her punches flying towards him. The first connected, Sokka letting out a strangled type of grunt, but he avoided the other two punches like a pro. "You okay, Sokka?" She gave him a slight nod, something hard to do with this armor on, when he pointed out that at least she had it now. Despite her ability to bend, Sokka seemed to be the stronger between the two of them, so the armor would at the very least give her a foothold on his level. Didn't want it to end too soon!

    Sokka struck out like a real pro with his sword, spinning and whirling that thing around to hit her armor. Her arms moved in stiff, forceful motions however, and the two of them could hear the earth crumble beneath her as she used it to maneuver herself around as though she were on a conveyor belt. Dodging every strike he threw at her, she gestured her arms downward and the earth beneath her settled back to its usual state, the two still facing each other. Underneath the armor, Korra panted a bit "Good job!" Geez, it was really hard to bend underneath all of this. Holding her arms outstretched, she thrust them forward and bent the earth around her to charge herself forward again. As she got closer, she threw a punch towards his shoulder, leveled her arm to strike him across the chest and hooked a bit of earth around his ankle in an attempt to trip him up.

    "Excellent!" Returning Korra's hidden grin with a fully visible one of his own, Sokka began to figure out some of just how he might go about helping her make earthen boomerangs a new tool in her bending arsenal. Any of his ideas were quick enough that he was able to sort them out for later as soon as they popped into his head, and they certainly weren't anything that would distract him from the spar at hand, but he was admittedly excited for this new chance to train with his best friend.

    Although his own attacks had not been connecting quite as well as he'd hoped, he was still getting some good practice strikes in, and even better, Korra was getting a great trial run with her armor. It was proving to be just as effective in giving her offense an added edge as it was augmenting her defense, and no matter how long it held up, Sokka was determined to make the most of this. His own previous training experience with Toph was certainly coming in handy in a myriad of ways already, and whilst he was not an earthbending master like the Blind Bandit, he was going to do his best to help Korra out with her latest recovered element.

    As Korra checked on him from her last blow, Sokka gave her a quick nod, noting, "Yeah, I'm good! That was a good hit but it will take a lot more than that to take me down!" Regardless of their past training sessions and spars, the duo did have pretty impressive endurance, and the warrior was more excited to see just where this spar would take them than he was for who might win it. Korra did take the previous round though, especially with her expert dodging of his sword strikes, but he still grinned at her compliment. "Thanks!" Making sure to keep his defensive stance, Sokka was ready as Korra charged at him, soon deftly evading the attacks aimed for his shoulder and chest.

    Two successful dodges were the prelude to him getting caught around the ankle though, and Sokka soon found himself on unsteady footing. "Gah!" Moving into the fall, he landed hard, but at least managed to roll to his left shoulder instead of a more awkward angle. "Good job yourself!" And now it was his turn! Sweeping his legs back and to the side from where he'd landed, Sokka rolled to the left before springing upward with his sword at the ready. He struck at Korra's right side with the blade before he was on his feet again, and as he circled around her, he slashed at her opposite side before resuming a defensive stance.

    Sokka was quick to send a nod her way, assuring that he was fine. "Okay! In that case, maybe I ought to try a bit harder, huh?" She chuckled, only partially joking. So long as he could take it, she ought not hold herself back! Though at the same time, she'd rather not give her friend a concussion or broken bone. At the thanks, she sent him her best thumb's up that she could conjure underneath all of this rock, before charging at him. The slippery warrior managed to evade both her attempt punch his shoulder and the strike at his chest. However, she had managed to trap his foot in some earth, and caused him to fall down on the ground! "Ha ha, yes!" She threw both of her arms in the air happily, smiling hard beneath her armor, a smile that only brightened at the compliment. "Thanks!"

    Sokka did a roll before he charged forward, sword ready. He seemed to be moving a bit faster this time however, as Korra could only bring up an arm in an attempt to block his sword, though it wasn't fast enough. Hissing, there was a rocky crumble as the sword struck the side of her armor, Korra briefly checking it. Hmm, it seemed to be chipping...rock wasn't exactly indestructible, and the strike had managed to hit her through it. Too bad there weren't any crystals or anything around here! Attention back on the fight, her eyes narrowed as Sokka circled before striking her again on the opposite side. The second strike seemed to be the last straw for the armor, as it crumbled down onto the ground, Korra backing away and letting out another slight hiss of pain. "That was a good trial run, at least!" It was back to basics, now!

    Keeping both feet steady on the ground, Korra's hands reached downwards before suddenly shifting upwards together, creating a pillar of earth in front of her that reached her chest. "Remember everything I told you about probending?" She asked with a conspiratorial grin, before locking both of her arms into a stiff position and making several horizontal movements with them, though with every move, a horizontal slice was created in the pillar until she had a pillar of stacked discs made of earth. "Think fast!" It was her only warning before she stomped her foot, three discs levitating in the air, and punched outwards, sending the discs at Sokka.

    Sokka couldn't help but laugh a little himself at Korra's response. "That could go for both of us with the blows we keep trading!" Although he knew that she was only partially joking, he was still glad that she was making sure to be careful whilst not skipping on a real sparring session. Whether it was her keeping an eye on her bending attacks or him using non-lethal strikes with his own weapons, this was the epitome of true practice.

    Whilst he'd had a pleased grin before his rebound, that only grew at Korra's thanks and even more as he realized he'd landed a critical hit against her earth armor. His second attack struck true as well, and no sooner did he take his defensive stance than did his friend's armor break apart, crumbling to the ground. Sokka perked up a bit in slight triumph before his expression fell a little at catching Korra's soft albeit pained hiss. She still sounded like she was in good spirits though, and as soon as she gave her assessment of her first test with that type of armor, Sokka noted, "I'll say it was; you've definitely got a new move in your arsenal! You are okay though, right?"

    As soon as Korra confirmed her status, Sokka readied his defensive stance once more. Her next question caused him to raise a curious eyebrow before meeting her grin with a playful one of his own. "You better believe I do!" He might never have got to see a match in person like her, but with the detailed accounts she'd given him, he felt as though he'd been right there in the arena. Here though, it seemed as though he was going to get an up close and personal experience with the sport, straight from the playing field!

    "AAH!" Sokka figured out what Korra was up to in short order and moved to quickly try and evade the trio of stone discs. Between a swift backward strafe and a partial duck, he just barely managed to dodge each of them, and as soon as he was clear he was set to go on the offensive again. "Nice moves!" Dashing forward, Sokka quickly shifted his sword to his left hand whilst drawing his bone club with his right, and as he approached Korra, he called, "Now it's your turn!" At that, he unleashed three quick hits with the blunt weapon: one at her shoulder, the second at the midpoint of her thigh, and the third across her side. Spinning with the flow of that attack, the warrior was quick to back up, set to see what his friend might meet him with next.

    Korra chuckled in response. "I guess we're both just too good!" Bit of a cycle of dodging they had going on. If this were a real fight, she'd be pretty frustrated, but since it was a spar with a friend, she was fine to be missing so much. Gave her a chance to try and hone her earthbending skills, to do a better job with her aiming. She was sure that Sokka felt the same way too, for his boomerang and sword skills. After the armor was spent, Korra took a slight pause, mostly to brush off some dirt that was still clinging to her skin. Sokka was quick to agree and point out that she now had a new move in her arsenal, before asking if she was alright.

    "Takes more than that to bring me down, Sokka." She said in a boastful tone, though her smile was reassuring. Not long after, Sokka confirmed that he still remember all of the things she had told him about Pro-bending. Though, she didn't do nearly as good a job as Shiro Shinobi in describing Pro-bending to him. It really was a sport you had to see to appreciate, though Shinobi's commentary had been really great as well. The man had a way with words. Until they managed to find some sort of recording of his broadcast though, Sokka would have to settle for Korra's earth discs! Three of them made their way for the other water tribe teen, and all three were evaded easily. "Nice moves!" She cheered, giving him a thumb's up and a grin. It was a shame that Sokka wouldn't have been able to be a part of Pro-bending, not being a bender and all. Even though the Equalists were pretty insane with the way they did things, and Amon lied his way into getting support, Korra had to grudgingly admit that there were some...issues, with the way things had been developing in Republic City.

    "Thanks!" Was her quick response to the compliment, before bending her knees into a stiff, earthbending defensive pose. True to his word, it was Korra's turn to dodge, duck, and dip as the bone club came her way. One going towards her shoulder, one for her thigh, and the last towards her side. With such close strikes in rapid succession, the best solution Korra could figure out to evade all three was to quickly jerk her hands in an upwards, spinning motion. The ground beneath Korra began to twist and churn, suddenly sucking her down into it, as though she were consumed by some beast. Korra resurfaced a foot or two away from where she had started, bursting out of the ground with a big gasp of air and covered in a healthy layer of dirt. "I didn't think that would work! Phew!" She didn't even bother to wipe this dirt off, instead giving her companion a wide grin as she struck the air, the stack of earth discs soon heeding her command and sending a disc soaring for Sokka with every punch.

    Aside from just being a fun chance to spar with each other, if nothing else, this training session was definitely proving very useful in two major ways. First off, it was great for Korra to get to practice her earthbending for the first time since before she had been brought here, and between their own collective skill, it had given them a respectable amount of dodging practice. The match might have taken more of a defensive turn than either of them could have anticipated, but that by no means meant it was any less fun. Hit or miss, Sokka was still glad of rate chance to better his own skills, and he looked forward to seeing how this session would pay off now and in the future.

    With a bark of laughter at Korra's playful quip, Sokka found soon found himself on the receiving end of a trio of earth discs. Shiro Shinobi might not have been providing commentary on this spar, but it was still a great experience thus far, and the warrior had a strong feeling that this display from his friend would only add to anything she might get to share about pro-bending from this point on. Grinning a bit as Korra complimented his own quick dodging, Sokka returned her thumbs up with his left hand. "I try! You're already making me feel like I'm in the ring!" He might not have been able to participate in pro-bending outright, between both the lack of the sport here and his own inability to bend, but he could at least learn the moves that went along with it.

    Korra met her own turn to go on the defensive with flying colors, not only avoiding all three attacks but also pulling off a very impressive evasive maneuver. "Huh?!" Now Sokka had seen a similar move before, both for those performing it as well as those being pulled underground against their will like Katara had been once, but he hadn't expected Korra to use it here. Skidding to a stop at the spot where the earth had spun, Sokka blinked for a moment before his eyes immediately went to the point where Korra popped out of the ground. She might not have thought her move would work, but in the end… "I'd say it worked perfectly! That's definitely an advanced move!"

    Meeting Korra's grin with one of his own, Sokka charged forward, dodging the next three earth discs that she punched his way. His momentum carried him around his friend, lining him up to strike at both of her shoulders with his bone club. Whether he connected or not, he threw one more swing at her thigh with the blunt weapon, set to land in a defensive stance to meet her next possible volley.
