Have you ever wondered whether you have what it takes to wield a blade of energy in a galaxy far, far away? Have you fantasized about learning how to fight the minions of the dark side or become a champion of light? If the answer to either of those questions is a resounding, "Heck YES!" then you need to come train with us! We're a group within The Forge: Western Martial Arts that is dedicated to celebrating our fandom in a unique and fun way! We are applying our collective 30+ years of martial arts experience to our favourite fandom and creating a unique, inclusive environment for others interested in learning and practicing sparring with a sabre. We will start practicing out of the Highland Park Community Hall on the 3rd Sunday of every month from 2:15pm - 4:30pm. Sabreforce is a division of The Forge: Western Martial Arts.

Just a reminder that if anyone wants to get some sparring in we’ll be training with The Forge tonight outside Highland Park Community Center 7-9pm.
If anyone has their own saber, gloves and helmet I’ll be up for sparring at 9pm!
And it’s all free.

Hey everyone! Sorry for the inactivity, been going through a time as I’m sure a lot of you have been also. While all these Covid restrictions are in place I can’t really see a viable way of starting classes up again. Even when the hall is available once more we will be restricted on numbers an unable to make the rent, that plus a large reliance on our loaner equipment and that I am now working Sunday’s anyway just make it impossible to put anything together for you.
If anyone is missing training as much as I have been, come on down to The Forge on Thursday nights 7-9pm. While the weather is still okay training is happening outdoors and free, pretty much the same techniques as Sabreforce just using swords and we can spar after class under the floodlights.
You will need a face mask and if you want to spar, protective gloves and fencing mask.
Hope to see you there!

We’re still trying to figure out how to safely re-open with masks and gloves being essential for sparring. In the mean time here’s an excellent exercise you can practice at home. Print this out and put it up on a wall then make your diagonal cuts following the numbers.
Once you have it down add in footwork.

Hope to see you guys sometime soon!
