On March 9th, our friends from the Penguin Saber Academy in Palm Desert, CA, hosted their first annual open tournament! Thirty-two (32) fighters showed up, with 50-60 people attending in total. It was a very well run tournament, and the biggest we’ve seen in Southern California yet! PLUS it was the first officially sponsored event for the Saber Martial Arts Foundation, with over $100 raised through sales of merch and a big raffle! Thank you to everyone who attended, who supported the Penguins, SMA, and the entire lightsaber combat community!

The day after the tournament, Steve sat down with Nick Richardson (The Emperor Penguin), Master Alan Venable (Head of Phoenix Sabers, and winner of the PSA tournament!), his wife, Jill, and Alan’s Padawan, Kenny, to talk about the tournament, the event, the fighters, the brackets, and most importantly – Port Lights! Also, trying to educate Nick about ScotchCon. And..well, too many tangents to count!

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…

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!

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).
