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 are the intended target points. Below is a quick overview of how our notation works. Once you understand that, register for free and begin learning our Choreographed Movements and learn SaberCraft. Teach others and considering opening your own chapter.

Introduction to The Temporal Notation System

Notation

Notation is then written in the following form:

Participant 1:  3 - 4P - 11 - 9P
Participant 2: 3P - 4 - 11P - 9

The choreography above then states the following:

  • Participant 1 will attack participant 2's left arm (right side of attacker); Participant 2 will block the attack
  • Participant 2 will attack participant 1's left hip (right side of attacker); Participant 1 will block the attack
  • Participant 1 will attack participant 2's right side of their head (left side of attacker); Participant 2 will block the attack
  • Participant 2 will attack participant 1's right arm (left side of attacker); Participant 1 will 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. Below is a quick overview of how to progress in SaberCraft but the process starts simply by registering for free and get access to all of our online lessons for free. There's no catch, no enrollment fee or anything. It's free. If you are in South Florida, please consider attending one of our classes. If you live elsewhere are looking to start a chapter, please contact us and we'll help set up your classes.
