On August 1st, John and I held a Lightsaber camp for the Nar Shadda base, and the Temple of the Howling Moon. We discussed and practiced the basics of using a sword, and these techniques could be applied to other weapons; Jedi . If you weren't able to come and you are interested in seeing what we did, I typed out a document that lays it all out. This is the basis for the lightsaber demonstrations that John and I preform. Keep in mind, that these techniques were created for fighting with longswords, and not choreography or stage fighting. Basically, this is medieval martial arts, and like any fighting styles, if you are just starting out or do this without a slight level caution, you can hurt yourself. So, practice at your own risk.

your neibours had to find out eventually;)
when me and nick practice with our steel swords i think the niebours are too scared to call us crazy
if you ever need someone to practice with just let me know, im not working at the minute so i have all the time in the world (that goes for anyone who is interested)

i would love to get as many people as possible as proficient at this as possible and then we could put on a jedi vs sith large scale battle

that would be fun

My schedule is fairly open also these days. Also, John and I have been trying to find a new location to practice for winter. Outside works fine now, but it will be more difficult in January. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated, free is preferred.

Here's a really good video that shows all the basics strikes one after the other. They give them different names, but they are all the same cuts.

Want to be like Anakin in Episode 2? Here's a very good video showing some very basic sequences for using two blades.

I know its much tougher than it looks.

and...maybe since Dan lives in Madison...
he might be able to join you and John in some "live" training
and join you at some of your demonstrations if even for a short sparring match?
