Default Re: detaching bionic leg to use as club instead of just kicking with it

1) a 2-legged person who recently loses a leg should find it harder to balance
2) a 1-legged person who recently gains a leg should fine it harder to balance

Neither should be impossible though, since people learn to balance with different load %s all the time, it could be soft-capped w/ penalties.
Attaching a weight to one of your legs and then switching between standing of different legs isn't particularily difficult though. I think someone with the martial skill to attempt the leg-club/leg flail probably has pretty good balance. Either way the advantage "Perfect Balance" would of course negate any such penalties. Jumping around on one leg in an attempt to hit someone with the other (bionic) leg that really does sound difficult though.
