Our Battle of Buffalo Tournament was recently featured on the local news in Buffalo Missouri!

See our newest class addition!         The 7 Forms of LightSaber

  • This class features training on the seven forms of lightsaber combat in the area of stage combat. Our students will learn, in depth, each of the seven forms and various combinations of moves designed to create a stunning and exhilarating performance showcasing the use of the power of the lightsaber. This class is not our traditional combat-focused class but incorporates combat moves in a stage format for those more interested in the performance and form rather than a combat approach. This class will still give a full workout and add flexibility as well as some additional grappling and tumbling moves that traditional sword fighting and lightsaber combat may not offer routinely. It is also a great compliment to our full combat classes.
