We’ve recently added a Training page to the site here, along with info on our ranks, forms, and Knights!

Our Podcast is now part of the Star Wars Commonwealth Podcast Network!  It’s quite an honor to be invited and be part of such a great group of Star Wars podcasters!  Links to the other shows in the network are on the Podcast page!

 

CONGRATULATIONS LORING!  He has passed his Trials and has become our most recent Knight!

Also, our Youngling has now “come of age” and has been graduated to Padawan!  We’re all very proud of her!!

Who are we?

San Diego Sabers is San Diego’s premier Lightsaber Training Combat group!

Our mission is to promote and teach lightsaber combat and dueling skills by helping each other learn and grow through acceptance, respect, and a positive attitude.

Our primary community is hosted on Facebook : Search for “San Diego Sabers” (not the hockey team!) – or click the FB icon at the top or bottom of the page.

 

Join Us!

To join – simply show up!

We do this for fun & education. There is no membership application, no fees.

Are there age restrictions for kids? No – but we ask that anyone under 16 years of age be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

We do ask participants to sign a safety waiver. Download this PDF, print & sign it, then bring to one of our events.

Safety Matters To Us!

In order to ensure safety at our events, we have implemented some basic safety equipment requirements:

SPARRING: Gloves and face/head protection are REQUIRED during our sparring sessions. Head/face protection includes paintball masks, hockey masks, fencing or kendo helmets, or something similar. Accidents happen – frequently – even with our most skilled competitors. This is for your safety to protect your eyes, ears, neck.

TRAINING/DRILLS: The same equipment is RECOMMENDED but not required during instructional training sessions.

Equipment

Equipment is a very personal situation. You like what you like because it fits you better, feels better, looks better, or any number of reasons.

With that in mind, we’re not specifically endorsing any vendor or equipment. That’s ultimately up to you.

However, here are some sample types of equipment so you get a feel for what you can be looking for:

Combat-grade Lightsabers

Amazon

Paintball masks can run $20-$100
REMEMBER: Your face is important!! Protect it!!
