all...dorktastic fun! Use state of the art professional grade props and walk away with a
lightsaber initiate certification.

recognition from the governing body of DAI. Great for the resume and fantastic for actor
training or professional! As a bonus, pick whether you want to fight in Elizabethan rapier
This class requires

Orion will inspect them before we start. It isn't necessary to own or buy your own but we
do have a company or two we recommend! See the blades in action on our website at

you'll work hard to complete the workshop.
