    I'm not trying to get any money from anyone so don't think that I'm advertising or anything.

    I am familiar with the 7 forms of lightsaber combat and have come up with an applicable way of using them (for fun but for exercise too). I was just wondering who would be interested in joining me in gear every once in a while while the weather is warm, in a park or something with gear and blades in hand and wanted to learn what I've learned so far.

    It would be a cool way to develop our community and it would be a lot of fun.

    I'd be willing to do it one on one or in a group or anything (anything holy that is). I'm wanting to learn or teach what I know or just get together and discuss Star Wars or whatever.

    Drop a post here or an e-mail to either dissidentknights@unimwebcenter.com or jwmwestbrook@comcast.net or a call @ 501-442-9184 if interested.

    NO I'M NOT ASKING FOR ANY PAY OR ANYTHING BUT THE TIME YOU WANT TO INVEST IN LEARNING OR TEACHING SOMETHING COOL!!!

    What does gear entail?

    I'm interested, but time is an issue until at least the end of September for me.

    PS, You might want to add something to the thread title that says what it's actually about (like Saber technique or forms)--you can click edit on your first post to edit the title. We do it all the time for long-running threads around here.

    It really only means Jedi garb or even just sweat pants or whatever you would prefer to learn it in. In the beginning there is very little contact and I try to teach people to expose openings while in combat without striking them. It's just for exercise and fun!

    That's cool. I doubt I would want to learn in my Jedi Tunic--I like to keep it as sweat-free as possible!

    Yeah, I like doing it sometimes in garb (for the feel of it) but I also like doing it in some basketball shorts and a sleeveless t-shirt :) It would be a lot of fun to teach you, do you want to hook up one day?

    Sounds like a great idea...

    (Of course, I'm out right now since I've been condemed to bed rest)

    But, I think that you'll get a good bit of interest in this.
    Give it a few days for everyone to hit the boards...

    dood, where do you live? can you give a little about yourself or did i miss that? i am suspicious by nature so dont take any questions personal, but the "let's meet in the park and spar" thing sounded funny to me for a brief moment. it could be i am female and well that should say it all. i love these guys and if they think you are okay then so will i. why dont you show up at the library thing so a bunch of us can meet you? the kids would love to talk about lightsaber techniques.

    I just wanted to tell everyone that Kynstar, one of her friends and I trained Thursday evening and had a great time. Lightsaber blades were flashing... it was great. I'd welcome anyone who wanted to join. We had a blast.

    Are these techniques kin to Martial Arts? I do martial arts and was just wondering.

    I look forward to doing it again (I've pm'd you) and to answer the question before, there are some similarities but it is more lightsaber technique than any one art or another. It's pretty much just for fun and exercise.
