The picture was from a little combat sequences we worked on with Darth Cervall some months ago (for the release of Rogue One). Without trained it lastly we can use it to demonstrate easily what is, for us, a combat choregraphy. This little choregraphy is very pleasant to do and, to my mind, function very will. I like a lot the photo. The last move :-) Very good and interesting event. 20 people gathered below the Lightsaber. Tired after these three hours. But very happy !
We try a new jumping choregraphic move! I like it a lot but it was tiring. Some kind of jumping strike. It will need a lot more practice but so fun to do ! I will try to find some good pictures or videos of it.

A really nice workshop. Footwork, stances, parries and strikes from Form I - Shii-Cho of the TPLA system. A little Soresu with the falling leaf movement. The workshop was devoted to fight choreography, with its specificities, angle of views, intention of strike, control, safety of the practitioners during the attacks carried out without head protection... The trainees were delighted, and me too !!!
It missed us some more time to find better moves of correct them to gain in "reality". but we create this choregraphy in 20-25 minutes and it was the first time I met Anthony (first time user of a lightsaber but an eskrima and korean sword teacher). Video

Desalon Manshad: Hey Everyone, little heads up, I might not be able to train for a little, recently got back from this overnight hospital trip from this episode my body had due to dehydration and overheating/overdressing, so my right arm and shoulder are pretty bruised atm

Desalon Manshad: But I'll be sure to train when I'm able to! Hope everyone is having a great day and May the Force be With You!

Furiora Helseare: Wow, been a while huh? my costrocondritis got super bad so I was basically bed ridden for the last couple of months, but I think it's finally on the way out. Not going to be training for a while yet just to make sure I don't aggravate it.

Furiora Helseare: Looking forward to resuming my training though

DarthRevic: hello all

BRAWLER: Hello Darth Revic! How goes the training?

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?

BRAWLER: Keep at it Furi!! Slow and steady friend, progress will come! 😊

Mitchell Theron Patrick: Hello, I’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.
