WHERE MEMBERSHIP DUES GO

When you think of everything else that is involved with building the program, that's where the Knights Memebership Fee goes. SaberCraft can be magical. It can be a system that will be global one day and you could help be a part of starting that movement. Yoga started in India and now it’s world wide.

Ranking

Many folks asked if there was a ranking system whereby our training could grow. This goes back to the curriculum. By paying the Knight fee, we are committing to you to providing you with a curriculum that you can be tested against. You are then witnessed in your progression and we actually take the time to log your progression.

Belt Ceremonies

There is a ceremony for each rank that is made for 1 individual at a time. A dedicated team build out an immersive scenario where you are the central character building your story in SaberCraft. It provides a LORE around the system. There is a story that is happening as you rise up the ranks similar to role-playing. Your fee goes into that production. Note: there is an additional ceremony fee per rank that includes a hand-crafted Belt specifically for you and includes Belt enhancements for future ranks. The Knight Fee reserves your spot for the year for your progression.

3 Guest Passes

Get 3 guest passes a year to share with friends and family. Guest passes are mainly for Fundamentals Class. We do have the option where your guest may attend the Advanced Class but they must practice mainly with you. Guest passes are granted after 3 months of attendance. Guest passes do NOT accumulate and are limited to a maximum of 3.

Value: $45

Curriculum

From notating fights, to breaking them into CMs (including developing the CM system) and building a curriculum whereby our classes stay interesting. Lessons are developed to cover old and new lessons each and every class. We rotate our subjects across time in order to allow anyone to jump in at any team and feel up to pace while presenting a challenge to long-time practitioners. Our curriculum is continually tested and improved. Evolving and changing. Anyone who’s been here for over a year can tell you how much things change in no time. 

Events

To date we have coordinated over 18 events many of which involved media coverage throughout 2016-2017. Each event required tickets, negotiations, parking, planning and more. This extends WAY BEYOND just attending a class. Whether you are fulfilling a wish for a child or setting that spark in someone at a con after they just paid $100+ on a new saber. Events require days of planning whether you’re playing a support role or you’re the main actor/instructor, there are many steps that lead to that opportunity. The ticket price alone for one of these events will offset the entire Knight Fee.

Value: Entire Membership Fee

Exclusive Classes

Every once in a while, we’ll set aside a date to meet up just for Knights. These are classes that still require a class pass but they are exclusive to just Knights. Why the special treatment? Time. If the class is open to everyone of all levels then some folks may fall behind and the pace of the class will get disrupted. These classes are set up for particular skill levels and space is limited in order to provide more of a one-on-one experience.

Website material

Need to remember a particular move or choreography? No need to go googling. Just go to sabercraft.org, login and voila, you should have it there. Updated and in an easy to download format.

Monthly 1-Night Practice

Every month, there will be 1-2 Thursday nights where we will meet at the temple (or park) for practice. The Knight fee grants you access to these practices. Keep in mind that these are practices rather than “official” classes.

Instruction Privileges

Your Knight fee gives you the right to instruct others in class. Everyone thinks they’re a teacher. Understand that students coming in come from different backgrounds. Some young, some old. Some challenged, some gifted. We’ve introduced over 1000 people to the basic fundamentals of saber choreography. By paying your dues and properly ranking, we outfit you with special classes and meetings to help you develop your teaching & presentation skills.

STILL NOT INTERESTED?

If you don’t want to pay the Knights fee because you’re not interested in any of these things, no worries. Keep coming to class and enjoy your SaberCraft training taking what you want out of it. We will still continue doing videos and offer most of them to the public for free because of the generosity of others who are willing to help fund this effort. This is for those who want to help the system grow and want to eventually teach others in the magic that is SaberCraft. So it’s up to you now.
