The Lightspeed Saber League Southern Regionals was an open tournament, hosted by Kyber Combat out of Warlord Combat Academy in Irving, Texas, and attended by fighters from 4 separate bases: Kyber Combat, Warlord Combat Academy, Krait Base Los Angeles and the Vier Blossen Fencing Club. 20 fighters competed in a grand total of 88 bouts over the course of 8 hours. Tony Zaldua was the sole representative of Krait Base, being one of the first California LSL members to compete in a Texas competition. Kyber Combat was represented strongly, making up almost 75% of the tournament. This was also the first formal outing for Warlord and Vier Blossen with the Lightspeed format!
Prizes were sponsored by Ripper Blades, Warlord Combat Academy and Black Lotus Sabers. Tony Zaldua was presented a 3/4” “Grateful” Ripper Blade for his honorable fighting and as a thank-you for traveling to represent Krait Base and all of California. Presten Woodlee walked away with a custom RGB sound saber from Black Lotus Sabers as well as a 3-month membership voucher. Laura Carnes won herself a 3/4” dueling blade and a 1-month membership voucher.
