    In two weeks, Sunday the 24th, is the second NYC Saber Legion charter meet up.

    For those unaware, we're essentially an extension of an international dueling group that just had its first tournament in Missouri.
    All skill levels are welcome. Most of us have either have little to no sword experience or barely a month of classes under our belts.

    We are currently doing light dueling.

    So as far as requirements you need some kind of basic eye protection (cheap impact glasses for like $5 from home depot are what we're currently using). Some padded gloves of some kind and preferably groin protection. Spare gear is available, not groin protection obviously lol.
    And then just as important. You need a duel ready Saber. The telescoping toys are not allowed only because they'd break. You could use Force FX/Black Series type Sabers, but be warned they weren't meant for combat and might not hold up.
    Otherwise anyone is welcome come out!

    So we had an AWESOME second meet two weeks ago. Forgot to share the pics. This was our last time doing light dueling as we are now moving into medium and heavy with proper equipment.

    The above image was actually found randomly on Instagram. We drew a CRAZY big crowd for the hour or so we were at the park. You can also see our new ring in action.

    This epic jump resulted in the gentlest of toe taps for the match point lol

    On top of our monthly meet ups at Central Park we now also have bi weekly meets at SCNYC! We promote them as the premier sword school for all your lightsaber (and real sword) combat needs and in return we get mat time to spar and rental gear to hand out to new comers! Keep an eye on their calendar (Under Special Events I believe) for dates and times.
