WHY LIGHTSPEED-SABER FENCING®?
Why practice fighting with a fictional sword? Lightspeed-saber fencing isn’t just playing pretend. It was built from the very start to emphasize speed, stamina, stategy, competition, and to NOT be like any other weapon-based sport out there. Learning Lightspeed-saber fencing hones all the aforementioned skills in an exploratory and open-minded environment, where the techniques and skills haven’t all yet been discovered.
speed & power
When your sword is made of light, it can cut through anything with the lightest touch. Power is certainly a factor, but it isn’t as important as speed. At the academy, you’ll learn how to wield one, the other, or both.
timing & agility
The word “fencing” comes from the same root as “offense” and “defense.” That means it’s not enough to hit fast. You have to escape and survive as well. That requires timing and agility.
stamina & cardio
Lightspeed-sabers are essentially weightless, which significantly changes the dynamics of combat. Agility and movement are essential skills, which means stamina matters. Be ready to go the distance!
strategy & tactics
When your opponent is quicker, be quick-witted. Tactics are a basic part of instruction at the academy. We’ll teach you what to do and when to do it.
Tournaments are a regular part of Lightspeed-saber life. Put your skill and stamina to the test. Earn points on our competition ladder and win medals and prizes.
If competition isn’t your thing, you can also rank up within the organization, proving to others— but most importantly, to yourself— the progress you’ve made. We’re invested in everyone’s success.
