Furiora Helseare: Because I'm still struggling with the saber position due to my huge gut (that I will one day get rid of), is the saber required to be facking backwards during front stance? Aug 2, 2018 14:01:39 GMT -5
BRAWLER: Keep at it Furi!! Slow and steady friend, progress will come! šŸ˜Š Aug 4, 2018 7:17:49 GMT -5
Mitchell Theron Patrick: Hello, Iā€™m new to the idea of lightsaber dueling and I still need to get a lightsaber. I was wondering if TPLA still conducts classes as I live in Michigan. Oct 18, 2018 3:43:47 GMT -5
Mitchell Theron Patrick: If anything comes up or you have tips/suggestions for me, please message me. Thank you! Oct 18, 2018 3:46:59 GMT -5
Dark Angelus: Greetings to all. I am already in a class called River City Jedi. Learned so much already and they do use TPLA as part of their guide lines and forms. Dec 12, 2018 10:28:19 GMT -5
Sabre: Nobody has done that yet, so ... Mar 2, 2019 4:38:59 GMT -5
Furiora Helseare: I know, was crazy for me to see as well, although I'm not a huge fan of the rules... honestly never liked "right of way" in fencing. If people score a double neither should count, you're both dead Mar 2, 2019 13:57:27 GMT -5
Furiora Helseare: "right of way" doesn't exist in a real fight, I don't care if it's "your turn to attack" if I see an opening I can take, I'm taking it. Mar 2, 2019 13:58:45 GMT -5
Nero Attoru: Right of way has some roots in realism, since attacking is given priority (which makes sense given the fact that the attacker would theoretically strike a killing blow first) Mar 6, 2019 16:15:21 GMT -5
Nero Attoru: Regardless, epee is a weapon that most people forget, and doesn't use right of way! Two hits gives each fencer a point, reflecting the double kill. Mar 6, 2019 16:16:06 GMT -5
cyclingswitch: I get why they went with that system though. If you watch Saber Legion fighting instead, it becomes more akin to kendo. It's realistic fighting but it doesn't look like Star Wars anymore. Mar 23, 2019 20:34:49 GMT -5
cyclingswitch: In Saber Legion, moving your saber around more than you need to to thrust, parry or do a quick strike to the waist or head is basically giving away a point. At least that's what I've seen in the matches I've watched with their style. Mar 23, 2019 20:36:10 GMT -5
Colin the Grey: Hey guys, whenever someone can find the time to go over my second Shii-Cho formula primer submission, that'll be a huge help. My free time is going to go down hard in a month or so, and I'd like to make more progress in the meantime. Thanks! Mar 25, 2019 11:31:16 GMT -5
Furiora Helseare: Hecking fuzz, the amount of spambots as of late. May 19, 2019 0:05:15 GMT -5
Sabre: ^We will take care of it. May 20, 2019 12:55:19 GMT -5
Sabre: *** Announcement: Major re-structuring in progress. Please be patient a little while longer! Thanks a lot! *** May 20, 2019 12:56:44 GMT -5
krawash: Thank you for the information ;) May 22, 2019 6:40:43 GMT -5
