KvR Choreography Sample

KvR Choreography Sample

Below is an interpretation of KvR as notated by Samantha Huddleston, Julie Failde, Ana Ma Jácome & Alfred Smith. This is completely inspired by the cinematic battle but it is not screen accurate to a degree. Many of the pauses, sprints and environment factors are not in this choreography. The choreography has been divided into their respective Choreographed Movements (CMs) and are classified as CMs 21-24. Below is the first half of the fight consisting of CM21 - CM22.

Temporal Notation System

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.

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

For a better understanding, please consider attending one of our classes.

Testing Requirements

Testing Requirements

In order to properly rank in SaberCraft, members have to qualify to move up the various ranks through a system of tests whereby their abilities are challenged. Below are basic testing requirements as to how testing is conducted. Keep in mind that the goal of testing is to create accomplished practitioners and, above all, instructors. It is not to prove who is the “baddest saberist on the block”. This is not about proving who is the best but rather proving who is the most committed in spreading the love of the art that we practice.

Minimum Time

The first basic requirement is time. There are certain time limits that one must successfully complete prior to moving up in rank. This prevents really gifted students from joining the organization and attain a high rank in a matter of months without developing the kinship needed to properly foster a community. Our focus in SaberCraft is not about building world-champion saber choreographers but rather helping people develop themselves internally and assembling community builders. Hours can be completed in classes and workshops. Fundamentals classes tend to be 1 hour while Advanced Classes are 2 hours. Workshops are 3 hours. The time limits listed below are based are reset when the student progresses to the new level. They are not accumulated based on the previous hours.

  • Fundamentals to Advanced: 6-8 hours
  • Advanced to Rank 1: Initiate: 25 hours (4+ months)
  • Rank 1: Initiate to Rank 2: Acolyte: 50 hours (9 months)
  • Rank 2 Acolyte to Rank 3: Fellow: 75 hours (1 year)
  • Rank 3: Fellow to Rank 4: Master: 100 hours (17 months)

Before a student can test, the minimum required time needs to be completed. A recorded log of all classes is kept by SaberCraft and a student can request for testing as soon as they meet the minimum time.

Examination Requirements

As you go up in rank, the testing criteria and requirements grow more difficult. Most students will attain Rank 1 – Initiate whereby they can test the skills that they learned throughout Fundamentals and the Advanced Classes. To be able to complete the task is one thing, but to be able to successfully complete a number of tasks together, that’s where the challenge lies. For example, if you want to prove that you can do “Downward Dog”, that’s just 1 posture. In the case of Rank 1, you may go down a checklist of requirements and check them off one by one, but when you enter into Rank 2 or above, certain areas of the exam are done in sequences.


Sequences are a group of movements put together and completed in a sequential order. So going back to the last example, doing “Downward Dog” may not pose a challenge but if you have to do all 18 Yoga postures in a single sequence with proper timing, that gets to be a bit more difficult. So for the higher ranks, students are expected to complete entire sequences from start to finish. Testing is not considered completed until the entire sequence set is completed. If you fail during a part of a sequence, you are given 2 additional attempts per month. After 3 failed attempts, you must wait 30 days before re-testing.


A person may be disqualified for the Knights program if any of these conditions arise:

  • Candidate does not act according to the interest of the group rather than themselves.
  • Candidate refuses to follow the Restraints and Observances
  • Candidate behaves inappropriately either in class or at public gatherings
  • The team does not feel the candidate is keeping their safety in mind
  • Injury to anyone in class (both in and outside of class)
  • Unable to provide confidence in the ability to pay monthly dues
  • Candidate misses classes continually
  • Candidate takes upon themselves to represent SaberCraft or Magic City Knights to the public
