Warfare Training is held in the Sensoriums and is completely optional, but it is not easy. Expect bruises and minor injuries; also expect to be told to leave if you complain about any of it, because Kang and Ronon Dex do not put up with whiners (Except for Grif, but that's only because Samus said it was mandatory for him to attend. It's a fairly common event for Kang to lose his temper and shove the man against the wall or something similar. :D;). They also do not put up with discrimination of any sort, be it gender, age, or species.
As a whole, Ronon and Kang do the same amount of stuff, and are equal in rank. One may cover a bit more of a certain part, due to more experience, but it all evens out in the end.
The schedule is Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1600 to 1800, and mostly optional on Saturdays from 0900 to 1200. They always make sure to inform the students which Saturdays are required at least a day ahead.
Here's the basic rundown of what is covered.
This one is split up evenly between the two. Even though Kang is not human, and at times moves in a way a human can't (for instance, he'll pin someone to the ground with his weight or use his tail or wings to knock someone off-balance), he is humanoid, and 90-95% of the time, fights like a human would in this style. They put a lot of emphasis on maintaining eye contact, exploiting weaknesses, and using an opponent's momentum against them.
This one is mostly Kang's. He's military-trained (generic medieval fantasy), and that's how he teaches. He makes a point of how movies tend to get swordfighting wrong with the 'hack and slash' method; use less force, and use every part of the weapon, not just the sharp side of the blade.
Ronon's, mostly, and similar to swords.
Also mostly Ronon's. Gun training is about upping their knowledge and proficiency with all sorts of firearms and they have a chance to check out a good portion of the armory's weapons (except for the BFGs, of course). A lot of weapons are similar in design which would make that easier. This is pretty basic; the parts of a gun, safety rules, how to load them, and how to aim and shoot.
Strategy and TacticsEdit
Mostly Kang's. Exactly what it says on the tin. So far, it's all theory, history books and a lot of explanations and diagrams. There's no application of this. Yet. When they reach that stage, there will be mock battles where the students will have to figure out what the best course of action would be, and implement it.
Every now and then, they bring in someone else on the ship to cover a specific subject, like blindfighting or kung fu.
