What we're about

Do you want to learn how to use a lightsaber with a Shaolin twist?

Combining the ancient art of Shaolin Kung Fu with the modern technology of LED combat sabers, Shaolin Saber Club is an all inclusive club for people from all walks of life. Our goal is to bring like minded, enthusiastic individuals together to learn Shaolin saber skills and techniques in a fun and friendly environment.

Martial arts training, weapons training or being a great athlete is not necessary. Just bring your spirit of fun and adventure and a willingness to swing a saber around. We have Star Wars Fans, some Trekkies, some who like weapons and martial arts, but all of us love lightsabers and doing something different and fun at the end of a long week!

Wear comfortable clothes you can move in and socks or indoor sports shoes to train in (no street shoes allowed in the studio). There will be a limited number of short staffs that you can borrow if you don’t have a saber, but it's great if you can bring your own (lit or not) and more fun too!

Come join us! Shaolin Saber Club hosted by Shaolin Kung Fu Training Center, will be taught by 35th generation Shaolin disciple Shifu Hengxin.

Fri. 7:30pm - 8:30pm, Sat. 12:00 noon - 1:00pm. $20 at the door/ Adults 18+.

** PLEASE NOTE: Friday class, from July 5th to August 30th will be from 8P-9P **

We hope to see you there!

Shaolin Saber Class

Shaolin Kung Fu Training Center

$20.00

Do you love lightsabers and maybe even have one, but have just been taking it out and swinging it around every now and then? Or perhaps you know a different style of using your saber and want to try something new? Well at SSC, you can learn the proper way to hold and handle your saber, but with a Shaolin twist. Classes involve learning basic techniques, familiarizing yourself with handling and spinning the saber, forms, blocks and strikes and maybe much much later (when we know what we're doing...), sparring. This is not a stage combat group but a fun club started by SKFTC to combine aspects of Shaolin Kung Fu saber and sword, but using lightsabers! No martial arts or sword experience is necessary and we welcome all adults 18+. Bring your saber if you have one, otherwise, we have a limited number of wooden short staffs you can use. Some members may have an extra saber to loan out as well. Wear comfortable clothes you can move in and note that street shoes are not allowed in the studio, so plan to wear socks or indoor shoes for class. Changing rooms are available. You might want to bring some water too as you'll find it's a great workout, but doesn't feel like one because it's so much fun! We'll meet at Shaolin Kung Fu Training Center at 7:30P, right after the Friday night Kung Fu Class. 2nd Floor. The fee is $20 (Cash Only) Also, if it’s your 1st time with us, you’ll need to sign a waiver before class begins. Thanks, and see you there! (Note that not all people attending sign up through meetup so there will likely be more people there than indicated on the meetup page.)
