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 15 students and the the style we are currently teaching is Balintawak, an offshoot of Filipino stick fighting. We also offer spinning and tricking classes and we are working on a curriculum for actual combat in the not too distance future. 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 - Shoto and hand Balintawak, basic strikes and blocks, light fitness and footwork, and a light focus on increasing flexibility. Beginners will learn our first Balintawak choreography and basic performance skills.
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 saber cool!
COmbat Clases - coming soon! - We are currently working on a program to teach sparing combat using lightsabers; think kendo with glow sticks! Watch this space for more information!
