Gabrielle's fighting style was a mix of martial arts, kickboxing and acrobatics. Her two trademark weapons - the fighting staff and the sais - are both part of a Japanese fighting style known as Okinawan Kobudo. See more »

Likeable Show About Redemption Mixed With Great Comedy
This was an amazing show that switched from comedy to high drama to tragedy to sword-fighting action and mayhem. All of this usually happened in the same episode. A great show for students of mythology, although the writers did incorporate their own ideas (into the mythological settings and characters) to give the show more texture and layers. The best part of the show was Xena and Gabrielle's intense affection, friendship and respect for one another. They are truly partners in everything they do and always willing to sacrifice for one another. However, there's plenty of comedy as well to keep the show from getting too serious. The more episodes you watch, the more you'll like and understand the concept of the show, and how it works on different levels simultaneously. Very highly recommended.
