Not a Costume Club

We are not a costuming club of any sort.

Below are a list of difference that set us apart from fan-based clubs out there.

The BIG Difference: It’s simple to start. You don’t need to spend money on equipment or countless hours creating a costume in order to be an “Official Member”. Simply show up with your curiosity, learn and have fun.

It’s about you – not performances. Though we may have participated in non-paid performances in the past, we tend not to do performances simply because of the amount of time and coordination. We conduct teaching workshops that are absent of any particular genre and are focused strictly on empowerment. Any events we participate in are free and all participants are volunteers. Many of our students build friendships that go beyond the class. Many folks are part of the local Renaissance Festival as well as various Science-Fiction conventions and may dress up for events like that. Our system is a means of choreographing for any type of saber/staff-related fight – genre-free.

We teach yoga, fitness and empowerment and utilize an LED stunt saber. We focus on the sport of combat choreography and do not incorporate any form of fantasy-specific genre in our competitions.

– Lead instruction is provided by a Yoga Alliance certified RYT 200 Yoga Instructor.

– We incorporate guided Meditation into our practice.

We require that you wear sport/fitness appropriate apparel to class. We love costuming outside of class, but our focus in class is clashing LED sabers and making it look and feel incredible. If you happen to love cosplay or larping and would like to gain a skill that you can incorporate with your cosplay then we have what you are looking for.

We invented our system – We use a combat choreography system focused on making the fight like a dance of saber play. We utilize the LUMINA Notation System and expand on it by utilizing patterns and forms of various martial arts. Other groups have their own target system that’s focused on hitting your opponent. Our combat choreography system is built to choreograph fights. Our form is not meant to hit anyone but rather to give the illusion that it’s an actual fight.

Documentation. All our lessons and various screen fights are notated so once you understand the notation, you can learn the choreographies.

Our classes have lessons plans and there is a curriculum. In other words, you’re not coming to a class and learning something random…..ever. Every class ties into every class; there is a curriculum built out and we approach topics seasonally.

We meet regularly at set times. Rain or shine as we meet indoors.

Safe Space. We charge to cover rent because our operation is conducted indoors in an air conditioned, safe environment and requires a stellar sound system as many choreographies have audio associated with them. We do not meet in parks unless it’s an informal gathering.

We end every class with an “immersive experience” that must be conducted in a controlled environment.

– Easy to learn. Can you learn how to fight with a saber similar to what you may see in the movies? Of course you can! But the system is not built on any genre terms that you’ll find in other clubs like “Dulon” or “Makashi” or other words that are tied to the Star Wars universe. We are not associated to any film series or genre. Our system is self-built from the ground-up.

These classes are to teach how to use a prop and build a system of integrated movement choreographies. We have a different approach to fitness and well-being. Here, the LED stunt saber lights the way in our path to health in both body and mind. We started the lightsaber movement in Miami and are the longest running group in South Florida.
