>Please excuse my iggerence.....what's a pell?

A pell is a practice target used in learning combat techniques.  Most
of them are vaguely human shaped.  Most are stationary and don't move
when you hit them.  A few are mounted or hung from something which
allows them to move in response to hits.  Basically, a pell is a
non-opponent practice target for your swings.

Calling a fighter a human pell is not generally considered to be complementary.
