The Training Grounds is an area south of Shing Jea Monastery in Seitung Province. It is here that all the students who come to the monastery are trained to learn about the professions.

Historically, training took place at Shing Jea Arena, today known as the Isle of Reflection, since by tradition fighting was not allowed on Shing Jea Island. However, in the years after the fall of the Ministry of Purity, the island fell into disuse, Shing Jea Monastery and the Imperial regime changed their stance and allowed large-scale arena combat at the monastery's training grounds.

Ambient dialogue[edit]

Student Kiko: Yon, why're you even here? All you do is complain.
Student Yon: My parents forced me. They said I was "wasting my life at the mech fights."
Student Kiko: Because you were
Student Yon: I just don't see the point of learning this when mechs are ten million time better at fighting than we'll ever be.
Student Kiko: The point is there's a lot more to this than just learning how to fight. You know: mindfulness. Discipline.
Student Yon: I'm disciplined.
Student Kiko: No, you've been disciplined... There's a difference.
Student Yon: Just three more months, and we're out of here.
Student Kiko: Um, I actually talked to Grand Master Kyren yesterday about signing on for good.
Student Yon: Really?
Student Kiko: Yes, really. I know you've got a job gift-wrapped for you back in Kaineng.
Student Kiko: But not everyone's got a mommy with a high-up ministry post.
Student Yon: Guess beats being a janitor.
Student Kiko: My parents may have to clean up other people's crap, but at least they're not full of it.
Student Kiko: Find a new training partner, Yon.
Student Yon: Hey, I'm sorry about what I said. I went too far.
Student Kiko: Yeah, you did.
Student Yon: I'm just...stressed out. This place is hard. I'm not good at any of it, and that's getting to me.
Student Kiko: I understand, but...maybe don't take it our on the one person who's willing to put up with you?
Student Yon: I won't. And, um, congratulations. The monastery is lucky to have you.
Student Kiko: Thanks.
Instructor: Yes, Bin?
Student Bin: Master, do you have time to talk about the finer points of muscle activation in the fifth form?
Instructor: Your execution of the fifth form is fine, Bin. Excellent, even.
Student Bin: I don't know, Master. I think I might not be activating my trapezius, and that's why I'm not getting full extension!
Instructor: Well, then, try doing it that way next time. See what happens.
Student Bin: So that's it? I knew it! Thank you, Master. Most people here, they don't know a rhomboid from a deltoid. Hah!
Student Bin: Master, I was also wandering: Do you have any notes for me on the sixth form? I think I might be piking my hips a bit.
Instructor: I promise, the most important thing to remember in mastering the forms is—
Student Bin: "Mind-body connection," yeah, yeah. But that's exactly what I'm doing right now, isn't it?
Student Bin: Using my mind to figure out what's going wrong with my body!
Instructor: Right, Bin, right.
