Where does the income you make go?

SaberCraft works on a zero-sum budget meaning that every dollar we make goes to supporting SaberCraft, it’s operations, it’s promotions and most importantly, it’s rent. SaberCraft does not make enough money to support a studio so we rent spaces as our budget allows and part of that is what students pay for class.

 

Why do I have to pay for class if I attend but it’s free online?

SaberCraft classes are conducted indoors in order to provide a safe, well-lit environment for our staff and students. The cost of class covers the rental space primarily and all remaining funds go solely into promoting the organization.

CM K: Staff vs Sabers

CM K: Staff vs Sabers

CM-K introduces the staff into the SaberCraft framework. In this lesson, two lumens are matched up saber versus staff. Notation below for Lumen 2 - Staff is noted with which hand is used to strike with the staff. L stands for Left. R stands for Right hand. Hand positions are up to the Lumeneer but we recommend Right-hand palm facing down and Left-hand palm facing up.

CM-D: Dynamic Combat

Choreographed Movements: CM D

Dynamic Combat by switching between attackers

In this lesson, we cover building a dialog between 2 opponents. By switching who is the attacker, we build a simple choreography movement that allows 2 players to trade strikes rather than 1 player doing all the attacks. By incorporating sections of previous CMs, we build a dialog that switches between CM-A, CM-B and CM-C. CM-D introduces two 2 elements:

  1. Thrusts noted by a 0 (zero) in the notation.
  2. Unconventional Blocks by introducing an alternative angle to a block.

CM-C: Completes

CM-C: Completes

CM-C: Introducing Completes & Complete Across ©

A Complete is a wide arc swing that flows through uninterrupted. A Complete Across is when you commit a wide arc swing at a particular target point but move parallel to the ground. Completes and Complete Across we note with a © symbol meaning that the swing is not interrupted and moving across parallel to the ground. In this lesson, we cover 1©, 5©, 12©.

In this notation below, you will notice a parameter that has been added to a particular defense. When a number goes after P, it designates where the tip of the saber is pointing for that particular defense pose. In this CM, we commit to a 3 Parry noted 3P but we turn saber to point its tip down to the 6 0'clock position. This defensive posture looks like you are defending one side of your body but appears as if you are blocking a strike from behind. This is notated as 3P6, as it is a 3 Parry, modified with the saber to point at the 6 position (blade pointed down).
