" Kind hearted jerk"

Ladies and Gentlemen, Jedi and Sith, and any grey area force adepts in between. :-D
I would like to issue a fun challenge to any of the non master members of the forums.

We all became addicted to ultrasabers because they are THE combat lightsabers, we can duel with them! I want to see more saberwork from everyone.
A lot of the videos we all see from fellow forum members are spinning videos, which donít get me wrong, are pretty epic (like the jaríkai obi-ani spin we recently saw...mind boggling)
And we all love to dissect the seven forms of lightsaber combat in the way of the saber threads, and we all love to watch videos with lightsabers....its an addiction really.
I think it would be brilliant to see more videos from everyone, all skill levels, all styles. Our lightsabers are not for show, they are for use!

What I am proposing, is that everyone start making an effort to document their practice, not an entire session mind you, but small clips, thirty seconds, a minute, two minutes whatever. As long as we all do it on a regular basis, document it, put the date in the title, who you are and what style you are going for.

We are part of one of the most amazing online communities I have ever encountered, everyone helps everyone out, that is so so so incredibly rare these days.
So lets help each other out with this. Take your videos, and post them up on a regular basis, every week, two weeks, a month, as long as its consistent, because it gives us a good record of progression we can all look at. Dont worry if someone is better at one thing than you, or you cant quite pull off a move you have been working on, thats what this is for. Sometimes a couple of words of encouragement can push you to try harder, and really excel at what you are attempting.

Try to work on the practical side of it, lightabers are weapons after all. Make it showy, it fits with some syles, thats cool. But make sure it has some practical application too so that you can use it in a duel.

Have some dummy work, shadowboxing, heck a short clip of a multiple strike combination you have been working on.

Another added bonus, is that this is going to give the resident masters more to look at, to help guide us along. That is what they are there for after all, to teach. And the more consistent progression they can see, the better they can guide us even farther on our path.

Here is my youtube link, I try to toss my forum name into most of the titles, and try to label the other guys in our group as well, since they donít have their own channels
http://www.youtube.com/user/durzoblint09/videos

Post your own youtube links directly into this channel, make sure to date any videos you take. Everyone can find your entire channel by following the link directly to youtube.

 
Lets see what everyone can come up with. Ive already talked to a couple of the masters before issuing the challenge, they seemed to like the idea.
 
May the Force be with you

Of course everybody remember, safety first!

Agreed, safety comes first, we dont want any missing limbs, or broken digits.

That being said, anything goes dueling, freeform kata, any of it. As long as its something that can show progression.

Very good idea. A few points:

1. Like Nero said-Safety first!

2. Like I would have said-Safety first!

3. Just a good idea- Safety first!

4. Please refers to Master Cain's video about posting videos- more light!

5. Black is sexy and all, but lighter colored clothing goes a long way in low light. If I can see body mechanics, I can see a lot more.

I look forward to seeing what everyone is doing.

Thanks Master Nonymous.  I'll be sure to follow your advice in my videos.  The current one on my channel is a bit old.

I accept your challenge!

Here is some linkage to my YouTube channel: Solinus' YouTube Linkage

Right now, I don't have anything up. It's hard to film yourself ... by yourself. I only have my cell phone, which can't take a lot of videos. I usually have to wait until my kids come over for the weekend.

But I DO accept the challenge!

Do what I do when im on my own, find something about waist height to prop your phone up on. Get the video camera app read, find your focus then hit record and go do your thing.

Trim the video down to get rid of the extra bits, and just have hte meat of what you are trying to record.

Thanks for taking up the challenge mate, cant wait to see what you do.

Challenge accepted, once my wife and I can get some time off to actually spin a little (and have her film me).  I use katas for flexibility training and a bit of cardio so this would be fun.

Hardest part for me to do this is finding someone to spare with.
Dont get me wrong fighting kids 10 years younger then me is fun and all but it gets boring when they got to go to grade school -.-
So all I got is swing around in the back yard T_T
