The most fun I’ve had with clothes on in ages. 5/5
Malcolm Anable
These guys gave their all, for a great battle on our wedding day and the great laughs the days prior. Even my son Liam enjoyed it. Brian can’t wait to catch up in the future to have more training and laughs.

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 or barefoot is ok.

  • Water. Hydration is key, and you're going to need it! Cold 600ml bottles of water are also available from reception for $1.

 

CLASS types 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; our current age range is 10 to 56! 

General classes run for 50 minutes with a group of up to 12 students and the the style we are currently teaching is Balintawak, an offshoot of Filipino stick fighting. We also offer spinning and tricking and European Longsword classes .

European Longsword - A great way to ease into the theatre combat experience. Longsword was the basis for the theatre combat systems used in Star Wars Episodes 2,3,5 and 6. This is in essence the "traditional" style of saber combat used in the films

Spinning and Tricking - These classes are designed to develop the skills of saber spinning and flow. Flow is not only about looking cool with a saber but developing Zen calm and control. This class will involve learning spins individually, combining them into a flow performance, breathing techniques to deal with frustration and in the end, ultimate mastery of saber and self!

Balintawak (Filipino Stick Fighting) - If you want more of a challenge, this is the style for you! Balintawak uses a sort shoto (short) saber and hand, meaning that we can create some truly dynamic and exciting choreography for you to learn! This style also lends itself to teaching hand to hand and multiple weapons as well, so we will have you fighting like a film star in no time!
