Learn to Fight with a Light Saber

Two kids learn light saber combat

We’re getting pumped for the new Star Wars movie, and to celebrate we’ll teach you to do awesome light saber fights!

It’s a surprise – and a disappointment to some – that the kind of fencing we do is so different from fencing in the movies. There are good reasons for that! In sport fencing, you are trying to disguise your intentions and make small movements to actually hit your opponent. In movie fights, two actors are trying to make the action look cool and, if they actually hit each other right away, the fight scene will be too short for all those classic lines of dialogue.

Well, here’s your chance to look like a Jedi or Sith and learn some cool stage combat techniques.
