|Reviews for Gambate, Marshall|

Really enjoyed this one! Knight Marshall is almost as fun as cowboy Marshall, lol.
One question though, why was Marshall's head thing different colors? Is it like the colored belts in other forms of martial arts?

*fans herself* lordy! Who knew citrus could be so very spicy! Fantastic story, I really enjoy your banter and Mary's thoughts are hi-larious. :)

Very nice story... I could ask for more, definitely so!
A glimpse in the hidden lives of our fav'marshalls...and Mary falling hard... well, for once, she won't hurt herself! :-)

I just discovered this show & I just discovered fan fiction(I'm a little behind the times:) & this story definitely encourages me to keep up with both. Awesome! I loved the humor & the detail, the kenpo stuff was really interesting.

Incredibly sweet; loved it.
A martial artist in action is a very sexy being, indeed.

All *righty*, then...
Yeah, he'd have to be the one aware of reality; personally, I think I wouldn't be able to think, either, Mary. Marshall's far, far too distracting.

Mary's encouragement driving Marshall to go above and beyond... oh, it would *so* work on him that way. ;~)

Oh my; Mary and her own brand of kiai - just makes me chuckle.
She'd be insane with a shinai in her hands.
Hakama... well, there are split hakama, though I don't know if Kendo uses them. I never wear mine; they get in my way as often as not, but such a forboding presense they lend to the attire. It'd be awesome to see Marshall in a pair. :D
The drills you describe, with the inexperienced simply banging hard and fast with enthusiasm and no control or accuracy... are you sure you've not been to any of our classes? lol So on the mark, you are.
Mary's excitement over watching Marshall fight kind of scares me - she's so bloodthirsty (yet I find this amusing, as well). She needs a little Zen meditation, methinks. I do love how into the matches she gets, how protective of Marshall. How *possessive* of Marshall. Nice touch.
I've seen the gear before, but I think I'd like to see the finishing move Marshall last used. I bet that's a beauty.

Ooooh, Kendo. Though never having trained in it, I'm following you pretty well. We have kenjutsu training at our class, so this is not totally unfamiliar.
Bokken are good for sword forms, practicing cuts and such, but used for sparring - is he insane? Wimpy me has been hit a few times with a bokken - totally sucks. No wonder he has those bruises! Shinai - though often painful in strikes themselves - I reserve their use for the sparring. I'm not Musashi, after all. lol ;~P
Seriously, this has a nice intro. The conversation is pretty on par with their relationship and personalities, and like you, I can really see Marshall getting into kendo. For my own fics, I have more empty-handed MA for him, but this is an awesome art that fits his interests.
Great first chapter. On to read more...
