EDGE, just coming off the smash success of "MacSith", in partnership with the Ving Tsun Self Defense Academy, is pleased to offer a single sword skills recognition course AKA LIGHTSABER CLASS!
This class is an introduction to the art of stage combat in single sword. The emphasis will be on partnering, communication, story telling, easy choreography and most of all...dorktastic fun! Use state of the art professional grade props and walk away with a lightsaber initiate certification.
As a recognized teacher with Dueling Arts International (www.duelingarts.com) Orion Couling will engage you in 12 hours of focused skill specific training in single sword. Upon completion you will be offered the chance to test fight for Level 1 of skills 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 or lightsaber.
This class requires
1. A fun but focused mind
2. Athletic attire
3. Props will be provided but you may bring your own light saber props. Please note that 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 www.edgeoforion.com
4. Commitment. For the technique to be safe you'll need to be at all the workshop and you'll work hard to complete the workshop.
