FMA fight in Superhero story.

Posted on May 14, 2013 at 11:40pm 0 Comments

This is a chapter in my superhero saga thats similar to Batman where a secret society uses full contact stick-fighting to attract recruits. I love FMA and want to see more of it in novels.

The startle-flinch.

Posted on April 19, 2013 at 12:26pm 2 Comments

The startle flinch has been made popular by guys like Tony Blauer and Richard Dimitri. Its a conditioned response to a sucker punch or ambush. you throw out your arms to counter attack. does anyone use it in their FMA

Batman and FMA

Posted on April 15, 2013 at 2:30am 0 Comments
