WHAT TO BRING
- Comfortable workout clothes (that means not jeans!). Movement is core to most of our classes, so make sure you wear something breathable that you can run, jump, squat, and roll on the floor in - and sweat in, because you're going to be doing a lot of that.
- Firm sneakers.
- Water. Hydration is key, and you're going to need it! Cold 600ml bottles of water are also available from reception for $1.
CLASS LEVELS AND PRICES
We teach classes for three main focus groups: kids, adults, and our Spectrum classes that are tailored to meet the skill and fitness levels of any students with special needs. We encourage participation of all ages above ten, and hold special fitness classes on Thursdays for anyone with a more intense fitness goal.
General classes run for 50 minutes with a group of up to 15 students and are split into three levels based on the skills and content of the course: beginners, intermediate and advanced. We recommend newcomers begin with our beginners course to get a handle on all the basic skills that apply to later weapon and training sets.
Beginners - Single saber, basic strikes and blocks, basic spins and flow, light fitness and footwork, stunt falls and a light focus on increasing flexibility. Beginners will learn our first two single saber choreographies.
Intermediate - Staff (double-ended saber) and pike training, applying basic strikes and blocks to two-handed weapons, staff spins and throws, moderate fitness and flexibility and movement within a whole space, intro to acrobatics: stunt rolls, cartwheels, handstands and so on. Intermediate classes will cover our staff and pike fight choreographies.
Advanced - Dual wielding sabers, applying strikes and blocks to dual wielding sabers in a visually and technically appropriate way, basic flow and spins with two sabers, movement on multiple planes, advanced fitness, flexibility and acrobatics: butterfly kicks, wall runs, vaults, kip ups and more. Advanced classes will introduce new choreographies and apply dual-wielding styles to previous ones.
Aged 10-15 years.
Excited and high-energy kids need exciting and high-energy activities, and these classes fit the bill. Our content is designed to keep kids engaged, with classes aimed to develop fitness, social and theatrical skills, and instil the solid values that will serve them as they move into adulthood.

Tuesdays 5pm | Special Needs
The academy was built from a desire to teach special needs kids in a more effect and rewarding way, and our Spectrum classes highlight that. Students participate in activities that can include general fitness, flexibility, physiotherapy, life skills and personal enrichment to increase self-esteem.
