CALL ME if you can't find us!!! Do NOT Text, they will not go through. [masked]-2744.
Don't be intimidated, everyone is welcome, first-timers, professional sword fighters; whether you have a $5 saber or a custom blade! Just come out and join the fun! We'll meet by the Bethesda Fountain in central park. (look at SCREENSHOT MAP for reference)
**Sidenote: Less mosquitoes at this location**
The rules are pretty open to suggestion but typically we take turns doing 1vs1 or 1vs1vs1.
-No contact to the face or groin
-hand shots don't count
-hits to arms or legs count as losing that limb
-torso shots count as a kill
-lightweight nerf weapons are allowed if you prefer.
-we can do non-contact rounds as well if you don't feel comfortable with contact.
Since we take turns and are pretty laid back, if you don't have a weapon we will let you use one of ours, just come join the fun!
**PICTURES FROM previous battles are now up!** http://www.meetup.com/Astoria-Long-Island-City-Geek-Adventure-Group/photos/all_photos/?photoAlbumId=23319272
Last week we did some choreography battles, pictures and videos coming soon. If contact battles aren't your thing, give this a try. (Cosplay not required)
