In two weeks, Sunday the 24th, is the second NYC Saber Legion charter meet up.

For those unaware, we're essentially an extension of an international dueling group that just had its first tournament in Missouri.
All skill levels are welcome. Most of us have either have little to no sword experience or barely a month of classes under our belts.

We are currently doing light dueling.

So as far as requirements you need some kind of basic eye protection (cheap impact glasses for like $5 from home depot are what we're currently using). Some padded gloves of some kind and preferably groin protection. Spare gear is available, not groin protection obviously lol.
And then just as important. You need a duel ready Saber.
Otherwise anyone is welcome come out!

So we had an AWESOME second meet two weeks ago. Forgot to share the pics. This was our last time doing light dueling as we are now moving into medium and heavy with proper equipment.



The above image was actually found randomly on Instagram. We drew a CRAZY big crowd for the hour or so we were at the park. You can also see our new ring in action.



This epic jump resulted in the gentlest of toe taps for the match point lol





We also have some HUGE news! Our charter has found an official home with Sword Class NYC!

On top of our monthly meet ups at Central Park we now also have bi weekly meets at SCNYC! We promote them as the premier sword school for all your lightsaber (and real sword) combat needs and in return we get mat time to spar and rental gear to hand out to new comers! Keep an eye on their calendar (Under Special Events I believe) for dates and times.

I mean The Saber Legion is international. You can join their main hub group on FB and check. They're in almost every state, plus Canada and a few other countries. And if theres none in your area you can request to start one of your own under their flag and recruit. But thanks dude!

Starting THIS sunday, The saber legion-New York will be partnering with Sword Class NYC (swordclassnyc.com) to bring armored Lightsaber Combat training and sparring to New York City!





The Saber Legion will be hosting regular meets on a bi-weekly basis (some exceptions apply) in the fully equipped training facility at Sword Class NYC! We will have access to training weapons if needed as well as basic sparring gear to utilize at our meets. This is an amazing opportunity for us as a group to be able to not only train in this facility on a regular basis in lightsaber combat, but also as myself and several others in the group are already doing.. train in traditional sword disciplines and apply them to our sport of Lightsaber Combat!

HUGE thank you to Raab Rashi, the owner of Sword class NYC for allowing us to do this! He is a true Jedi if there ever was one!

Sword Class NYC's training facility is located on 125th ST, About two blocks from the 4,5, and 6 train stops, about two blocks from the2 and 3 and a walk-able (10 to 15 minute) distance from the A,B, C and D (Cross town bus is available as well from that station) and is literally 15 minutes from midtown.

The first meet will be scheduled for this Sunday, August 28th and you can find a link to sign up (for $10, or free with a monthly membership to the school) below
