The School of Hard Knocks
Teleleli's premier school for the teaching of armed and unarmed self-defence. Its fees will be, for the most part, out of the reach of the traveler. Generally its students will be guards or thugs in the service of a wealthy patron who finds it cheaper to hire the unskilled and train them than to pay more for already skilled operators (an option only open to those sufficiently well-supplied with servants that they are able to wait). At times wealthy merchants, eager to imitate the landed aristocracy, have sent their scions to the school to gain skill at arms.
