Episode 100 – Swords & Sabers vol 5

WOW! We made it to Episode 100!! Celebrating this milestone – and it just kind of worked out this way – but we’re bringing back lightsaber instructors from across the nation, including yet another new one to the podcast, to discuss various aspects Saber Martial Arts. We also discuss our views on the recent decision by France to include lightsabers as a weapon in the French Fencing Federation.

PLUS! We’ve been teasing a big announcement – and it’s with Episode 100 that we are very proud to announce the formation of the Saber Martial Arts Foundation – a non-profit that we have collectively worked to establish, dedicated to the development and promotion of Saber Martial Arts! The president of the Foundation, Master Alan Venable, gives a fantastic introduction to what the Foundation is and our aims and goals, and you’ll hear about our plans for this year.

With that, here are all the shouts for this week…

Episode 65 – Swords & Sabers vol 3

It’s time for volume 3 of our “Swords & Sabers” discussion.  We have a full house this week, as Steve & Eric are joined by Fode from Star-B-Q, Alan from Phoenix Sabers, and Keith from Hawaii Saber Academy!  This continue to explore how real world martial arts and sword-play relates to our sci-fi world where we all bring lightsaber combat training to life.  You start to understand even more how Kurosawa-san’s film “Seven Samurai” was such a deep wellspring of inspiration for that galaxy, far, far away – and is crossing back into our lives for everyone learning martial-based saber combat: mind, body & soul!
