The System

Going beyond just clashing sabers. SaberCraft incorporates many empowerment tactics.

What you will learn

We combine, Meditation, Combat, Yoga, Dance, Lore & Immersion to make an experience that all ages can enjoy. This is not just a "saber class" - it's an all-encompassing empowerment class utilizing a program we've developed covering:

 

Meditation

Having problems resting your mind? Find some peace in your mindful movement. We practice our saber work in sets where we practice mindfulness to build a moving meditation. We open and close class with meditation to bring the individual to the 'moment'. 

Combat

SaberCraft uses a weapon choreography combat system known as The Temporal Notation System. The Temporal Notation System is an open-source form of weapon combat notation that provides an easy way to learn choreographies in small sequences known as Choreographed Movements.  We keep it quick and easy using an intuitive language that's universal.

Yoga

SaberCraft incorporates beginner to moderate level poses of Hatha Yoga led by an Certified Yoga Instructor (RYT 200) including ancient lessons from the 8 Limbs of Yoga. By incorporating practical lessons in everything from hygiene to proper posture, Yoga is the fundamental element that drives the movement in this system. 

Dance

The Dance begins when a saber is held. There is a movement that occurs that binds the saber to the individual. When that saber makes contact with another saber, then the dance between the two grows in complexity. We have developed a choreography group play system that is unique to our school and allows multiple configurations of group combat to occur while remaining safe and elegant. 

 

Empowerment

We incorporate parables & references to all matters of History, Science-Fiction and Fantasy to reach a greater audience. Among several "weapons", we utilize the LED saber as a weapon we can be familiar with and provides a sense of wonder and awe! By tapping into that part of us, and applying it to the movement in classes we wrap it up with a lesson relating to a work that all class members can relate to. This is something that is unique to SaberCraft and cannot be found anywhere else. 

Immersion

The final piece in our classes that take you someplace else where the Hero is awakened. You combine what you've learned into an immersive arena where we dim the lights, turn up the music and you dive into a safe battle setting testing your new skills. This is where bonding happens and you find partners that will help take your saber skills to the next level.
