Lumeneers, students who study at SaberCraft, at a certain point, may want to test their skills and take upon a whole new challenge and embark on the road to Saber Mastery. Saber Mastery is not easy as many may expect as gaining the ability to do saber choreography from memory and improvise combinations on the fly requires dedicated training and commitment. Saber Mastery is to make saber play second nature while being mindful of your moves and safety.

Being a Knight is about contributing to the future of SaberCraft and its students. The Knights Program is to empower individuals interested in learning saber choreography adopting principles of wellness into their lives. Through the Knights Program, members develop skills in Saber Mastery and Leadership while adopting a positive wellness and fitness routine.

Knight Sashes

Based on established martial arts programs, the Knights program provides an established curriculum using a rank-system built on on merit and personal accomplishments. SaberCraft uses sashes to designate ranks using the same sashes available for these other martial arts.

Testing your skills

Those enrolled in the program will have access to exams that will test their skills and provide them an opportunity where they can partake in a leadership role in classes and community events including workshops and conventions (Cons). It's guaranteed that with your first complimentary ticket you earn to a Con or with the discount on your class passes, your membership will have paid itself off. Even if you don’t attend our classes in person, you can enroll in this program and spread the word of the LUMINA Saber System.

Rather than practicing with others occasionally or when partners can make time, the Knights Program guarantees that there are like-minded individuals who are setting aside their time to practice their saber craft to its fullest. You dedicate yourself to the art and your practice. It means that you're willing to get to class a little earlier just to help out or taking on the new student and helping them with a particular form. For some it is about community events, while for others it’s a sense of accomplishment.

Time Requirements

Time is defined by a minimum number of sessions. As classes are monthly, if 6 months are required, then that accounts for 6 months of attendance or across however many months until they achieve 6 sessions. Sessions are cumulative and are linked to the rank. In other words, a Knight that is Yellow and attended 6 months only needs an addition 6 months of attendance in order to qualify for Orange.

Age Requirements & Disqualifications

This is for anyone, aged 16 and above, who has an interest for sabers, yoga, choreographies and performing. Considering that saber combat is a delicate dance; safety is of highest priority. SaberCraft Knights gain rank and are recognized in any LUMINA / SaberCraft-based school or club.
