Temporal Notation System

The Temporal System is an open-source weapon combat notation system that is used for SaberCraft choreographies. The system was designed solely from an "Attacker's perspective". As movements are choreographed, the assumption is that the attacker is initiating the contact. Defenders would respond to counter the attack. Below is a quick overview of how our notation works and the intended target points. Once you understand that, register for free and begin learning our Choreographed Movements and learn SaberCraft. Teach others and consider opening your own chapter.

Notation

Notation is then written in the following form:

The choreography above then states the following:

  • Participant (Lumen) A will attack their partner's 1-o-clock Target; Lumen B will parry (block) the attack
  • Participant (Lumen) A will attack their partner's 11-o-clock Target; Lumen B will parry (block) the attack
  • Participant (Lumen) A will attack their partner's 3-o-clock Target; Lumen B will parry (block) the attack
  • Participant (Lumen) A will attack their partner's 9-o-clock Target; Lumen B will parry (block) the attack
  • Participant (Lumen) A will attack their partner's 5-o-clock Target; Lumen B will parry (block) the attack
  • Participant (Lumen) A will attack their partner's 7-o-clock Target; Lumen B will parry (block) the attack

Next Steps

Moving to the next stage is actually becoming a part of the community. This is about building groups so you can practice, learn and grow with others. As a SaberCraft student, called Lumeneers, you learn our system, memorize our choreographed movements, then build your own choreographies and build a community to share this with. Once you register for the website, you'll have access to more completed choreographies inspired by film and TV taking the guesswork out of figuring out what was done.
