The best way to raise combat attack, Fencing classes are recommended if you want to raise Olive's combat skills fast and make her hit hard in melee combat. Initially it's affordable, but the cost rises sharply with levels. Thankfully, combat attack raises at a decent pace so you don't have to invest much time into the higher levels, and good swords will raise her damage dished out substantially over her natural maximum combat attack.
Keep in mind that combat attack is also raised by Strength, at 1 for every 8 points. So if you have a decent amount of Strength and plan to work at the salon, you may want to hold off taking these classes until Strength drops below 100, since every 8 points lost will drop your Combat Attack too, no matter how you raised it.
Occasionally, the school will be attacked by a Dojo Destroyer. The destroyer is a random challenger, and defeating them raises your Fighter or Magical reputation depending on what hurt them most. Losing to them, or not fighting them will cause the school to be closed for several weeks, so it's advisable to learn magic or attend some fighting classes before going here.
