fighting system help

I am currently working on a game where the main character has a sword, and I am trying to figure out how to assign combos to one key, as in z key for weak attacks and x key for strong. i have no experience on python or scripting whatsoever. any help or nudge in the right direction will help.
much obliged!

Learn some python, it is the only way
I am still learning it myself, and its really cool seeing stuff actually work, so if you are dedicated to make this just start there.

heh, thought so, just making sure. thanks
