Hand to Hand Training is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Trainers[edit | edit source]

The low-level Hand-to-Hand trainers are Nahsi at the Bravil Fighters Guild and Rufrius Vinicius at the Anvil guild. The mid-level trainers are Davela Hlaren who runs the Imperial Bridge Inn, and Thieves Guild member Ra'qanar in Castle Cheydinhal.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

The latter two will direct the Hero to master trainer Helvius Cecia once a Hand-to-Hand skill of 70 has been reached. He is in the Thieves Guild as well, and will have been encountered during the quest "Turning a Blind Eye" (his house is used for the Gray Fox meeting). He will only agree to training if the Hero hits him unarmed for around 30 seconds. During this, he will not be affiliated with the Thieves Guild and it will not be possible to be expelled from the Guild for assault if already joined, though once he says to stop, it will be considered assault again. Once he has had enough, he will train the Hero.
