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, right after the Saturday Morning Kung Fu class. 2nd Floor.
The fee is: $20
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.)
