Light saber battle non-choreographed & choreographed

http://youtu.be/b49pYCuFlmc


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)

    This looks like a lot of fun, but i definitely don't have a blade. I guess I can watch :)

    This looks great. I'll be there but may be running late. How long does it go on for?

    I bought a new Lightsaber at DragonCon but it hasn't arrived at my place yet. I'll be at the next one. :)

    Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, this event is located at Bethesda fountain which is midway through the park on Terrace Drive. Look at the map image I provided for reference, not the meet up map, as that is incorrect. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
