A 2 hour semi-private workshop presented by LightClub Kona

Have you ever watched a Lightsaber Duel on the Big Screen and thought,

“Wow, that looks like fun.” Well, it is!  And now is your chance to try it out!

In this 2 hour workshop we will be covering the basics of LightSaber Combat in a fun, safe, and progressive format.

The purpose of this new sport is to train your Body and Mind in the skill of real time adaptation to the present moment. This is not about learning a choreographed set of movements, it about sharpening your tools of reflex and response.

The skills we intend to build:

  • Coordination
  • Confidence
  • Agility
  • Timing
  • Intention
  • Spacial Awareness
  • Intuitive laws of gravity and bodies in motions
  • Flow (full body presence)

 

We also emphasize the importance of the connection between partners/opponents, which makes for a deeper level of flow, safer training, and an inclusive community.

What to Expect

We’ll be starting with warm-ups, then learning our way around the saber before moving into basic attacks and defenses. Once we lay the foundation, we’ll move onto some Dynamic Drills, half-speed sparring, and finally, full sparring for those that choose it.

Gear

We will provide the LightSabers for the course.

  • Athletic cup for the men (highly recommended)
  • Chest protection for the women
  • Eye Protection (highly recommended)
  • Protective Gloves (like lacrosse or hockey gloves) These are required for full speed sparring, we have several pairs available for loan.
  • Conformable/athletic clothing
  • water

Cost

$40 Per Person or $35 when you register with a friend!

Limited Class Size

We are limiting the number of attendees to the number of available LightSabers to insure that everyone has an equally fantastic experience, unfortunately, that means that we must limit our class size to 6, so we are requiring early registration!

Grab you’re spot now!

Secret After Party

There will be a secret after party at the park for those of you that want to continue sparring after class. It is likely that we’ll run short on time at the end, but we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to put their new skills to use! Besides, the Lightsaber is best appreciated at night!cropped-img_3111-13.jpg
