Preferably in the East Bay.

I have two Force FX lightsabers, Darth Vader's and Obi-Wan's ANH, plus a wooden saber bokken from ThinkGeek.com.

I also have Bandit Jedi's DVD and have been practicing the various moves whenever I can.

I don't have a costume, but I've VERY interested in getting together with others to learn the basics of fight choreography, different styles and proper footwork.

If you know of a group like this that's looking for new members, please let me know! I'm very excited about the notion of staging duels for exercise, entertainment and fun!

Have you tried to enroll in a kendo class? You would get some strong basics and a good start on real sword fighting.

I hadn't looked at that yet because I don't have a lot of fun money for the cost of classes, and I didn't want to risk butting into a teacher who gets more thrills from wielding their authority than applying instruction.

I'm also not interested in a long-term commitment that involves training in a lot of things unrelated to my particular interest. I'm doing this for fun, I don't want to become a gaijin ninja! Wink

I was hoping to find a local group of fans who stage fights for fun and for free! I don't mind paying for the privilege of instruction, I was just curious if I could save a little cash.

There are quite a few local choices for kendo that I'll have to research.

Thanks!
