Once again we were honored to be at San Diego Maker Faire, this year at the forthcoming Comic-Con Museum, so we brought the podcasting kit and sat down to talk about the experience!  It’s such a long, wonderful two days interacting with a ton of people, families, kids, talking about lightsaber training, building your own, and giving everyone a chance to try it out themselves!

This is the first time we’ve done a commentary (or “roast”) of one of our tournaments!  We bring the MainMen(tm) from Star-B-Q, Fode & Beed, to help roast our July 25th mini-tournament.  We discuss how the player fight, the pros & cons of moves, and random stuff in between!  It’s always fun having these guys on the show!!

Episode 76 – Star Wars Headband

This last weekend, some of us got together to play games.  It didn’t take long for people to want to record one of the games and turn it into the podcast for today.  So we recorded us playing the “Star Wars Headband” game.  Turn in and check it out.  It was such a blast!

Episode 74 – Marmite & Mirrors

In this week’s episode, there’s some random discussion about food (including marmite, which may or may not be food) – and Robert brings to the table the topic of “mirror battles” – how you fight against someone with the same form and/or skill as you, what you do, how you adjust.

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!

Episode 64 – Bridges

Bring your climbing gear, because this week we go deep!  In the training we do, and in many other aspects of life as well, we all have to deal with barriers and creating bridges.  Sometimes it’s physical, sometimes it’s all in our heads ultimately.  The guys get personal this week and talk about some of their personal challenges, and they relate them to training as well as other parts of life.  If Luke had said “I’m just a poor farmboy, I can’t do what you’re asking of me” then it would have been a real short franchise!

Episode 60 – Flailers, Fighters, and Duelists

Eric recently spent a series of training sessions talking to the group about the difference between Flailers, Fighters, and Duelists.  On this weeks’s show he shares the differences and approaches on these types of people – applicable not just for lightsaber fighting, but with many areas and skills we acquire in life!

Episode 58 – A Padawan Without A Master

This is an episode we’ve wanted to do for a while.  What are your options when you really want to learn lightsaber combat, but you don’t have an Eric (our Battlemaster) around to learn from?  How do you learn when all you have is YouTube?  This week we bring on Kaden Stetler from the Rebel Chatter podcast and Rebel Cause Lancaster (PA) to talk with Eric about his process in starting to learn lightsaber combat on his own.  Eric gives Kaden some advise on things to think about and focus on.  Good things to know for anyone just starting out!

I Have A Bad Feeling About This 2018-02-19

Welcome to the first episode of SDS’s “I Have A Bad Feeling About This…!”  About once a month, Doug, Loring, & Marina are taking over with their own new show.  You’ll get to learn more about San Diego Sabers from their own perspective as people with very diverse backgrounds, their experiences with our group, and also how they view Star Wars.  We’d love your feedback, let us know what you think.  And also let us know if you have questions for them!  Somehow we’ll make them answer those questions for you!

Episode 56 – The 2nd Party [NSFW]

We recently celebrated the San Diego Sabers Second Anniversary by having a little party. We had a great time (even without cake this time!) and recorded some of the antics, much like last year – but with less screaming. Enjoy the Star Wars Mad Libs!  You know how people can be – this is definitely not safe for work, or children, or small animals.

Episode 47 – With Great Power

“With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” – ok, not trying to cross into the MCU, but being an effective fighter also means being safe.  On the heels of talking about tournaments last week, this week we dive into safety – not only reviewing gear, and how we’ve seen it evolve in our group this last year, but also how to be a safe fighter – physically as well as mentally.

Episode 46 – Lightsaber School Tips

We were recently asked if we could throw some tips out about how to run a lightsaber training school as well as how to run tournaments. We brought Loring & Marina on to the show this week to talk with Eric, Robert, & Steve about how we’ve organized our group (reasons why we’ve done some of the things we’ve done) and also talk about the various aspects we’ve seen in running and participating in tournaments.

Episode 44 – Swords & Sabers vol 2

On this week’s episode, we go deep again! We’re back talking about the cross-over between real-world martial arts, swordplay, and lightsabers!  We’re re-joined by the Main Man himself, Fode, from the Star-B-Q podcast, and also joined by our friend Keith, head of the Hawaii Saber Academy and Precision Parkour!  There’s a lot of discussion on the logistics of fighting, the philosophies behind the martial arts, the use of swords, and the lightsaber combat forms.  Get your ear-holes ready for some really good stuff!!

Episode 40 – SD Maker Faire

About a week ago (Oct 7-8, 2017, that is) we exhibited/demo’d/sparred at San Diego Maker Faire!  We had a fantastic time – it was busy, it was intense, it was incredible!  We talk about our experience this year (our 2nd year there), with a few tangents & rabbit holes along the way.  Also, listen through to the end – we included a couple out-takes after the outro – ENJOY!

Episode 35 – Swords & Sabers

A very special episode this week – We have Fode from the Star-B-Q podcast back with us, and also Alan Venable from Phoenix Saber Academy & Saber Knights returns to the show.  Both are skilled martial artists with rich backgrounds, and together with Eric, our Battlemaster, we tackle a question brought to us from one of the team (Dennis if you must know).  We were asked to talk about the various types of real-world swordplay, what’s similar, what’s different about them – and since we’re a Star Wars podcast from a lightsaber combat group, how do those relate to saber combat.  The guys get quite in-depth on different types of eastern and western swordplay styles, different weapons, with ties back to lightsaber combat forms and techniques.  Definitely our most technical (and longest) episode so far.  

You can find Fode & Beed on the Star-B-Q Podcast:

And Alan and his groups on Facebook:

Episode 32 – News with a Z!

It has been quite a while since we did a news roundup – and can you believe it’s only been a month since D23?  It seems like a lot of come down the pipe in the last 4 weeks!  So if you haven’t been keeping up with things (you probably have, we know you!) we’re going to do a quick (not really) review of the news from D23 until now.  BTS trailer. EW Article. Ron Howard. Porgs. Chewie & the Porgs. Porg Chops. Apparently it’s all about the Porgs now.  Porg ON!  And we also touch on upcoming SDS events as well.  Oh, and Dylan, we got ya man!

Episode 28 – #SDCC2017 & #PHX

What a week!  We held a cross-school lightsaber tournament on Wednedsay, and then spent the next 4 days with the guys from Phoenix Sabers at San Diego ComicCon – not just as attendees, but we had a table in the gaming area, did demos, talked to people, and maybe made some new friends.  Maybe.  But to wrap up this week, Robert & Steve chat with Alan from Phoenix Sabers (now known as the Saber Borg of Phoenix) to talk about the tournaments this week, SDCC, and SaberLove(tm).

Episode 27 – Pros & Cons

It’s con-season!  So many conventions happening this time of year, especially with the big San Diego Comic Con (International) happening in our back yard.  So in advance of that crazy-house happening, we’re going to talk about cons this week.  Big cons, small cons – things about cons you like and don’t like – the anxiety that some people have going to cons!  And then some shameless (shameful?) self-promotion of “SteveCon” (Cassian said I had to).

Episode 24 – Padawan Roundtable

“A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.”  At the request of our newest Knight, we brought our Padawans together to discuss their experiences in our training program.  If you’ve ever wondered how it feels to be a Padawan in the real world (outside Star Wars), which goes well-beyond just lightsaber training, this is the episode for you!

Hi Again!  This week, Robert & Steve force Eric to talk about types of lightsabers, the various saber companies, and then get him to pull out his secret notebook to discuss, in his humble opinion, the different types of lightsaber groups there are out there.  So if you’re new to lightsaber work, or you’re a long time practitioner, tune in and find out about what lightsaber training can look like!  Special thanks to Marina, one of our padawans & member of SDS Clan Delta-Bravo for the topic suggestion this week!
