Nova Lightsaber is the class that you've been looking for. Train with our Masters and learn the Nova One Form of Lightsaber fencing. Lightsabers and protective equipment provided. Lightsaber Training for Young Jedi classes are grounded in the foundations of Kendo and the mysterious martial art from the Star Wars franchise. We use standard fencing gear currently approved by and meets all safety requirements of US Fencing Organization as well as additional protective gear specified by French Fencing Federation and Lightsaber League. We use actual Lightsabers that are designed for the younger Jedi Padawan (Jedi-in-training). Classes focus on introduction and reinforcements of the fundamentals of Lightsaber fencing including footwork, handwork, strategy and rules. Students will learn and reinforce various Lightsaber fencing movements and actions and will learn new actions and combinations. These one hour classes include group exercises (katas) as well as drills in pairs and one-on-one sparring. Skills are reinforced with age-appropriate games and activities that build conditioning, speed and endurance while emphasizing critical thinking and quick decision-making. At the end of the session a tournament will be held at Nova Fencing Club, followed by Glow-in-the-Dark Lightsaber Fencing. Nova Lightsaber Fencing for Young Jedi is appropriate for both beginning and continuing Jedi Padawan.
