This was something I made after buying new batteries for my sabers (which have gone without batteries for about two years now). I felt I had to make a video with them again now that they are actually functioning.

That's really impressive, you're movement are very fluid. I'd really like to be able to do that! I only practice atm the obi-ani, i'd really like to know how to spin the blade all around me.

A well deserved point for that video!

Many thanks. The obi-ani (or shoulder roll as I now call it) is one that seems to give a lot of people problems. I've done videos covering it in detail on my channel if you think you need more info on it. All it takes is patience and practice.

if this thread is still going, then here is a video thats more recent instead of last year. This is where i am for dual wielding at the moment. Most of these moves now i'm either learning to do it in reverse grip, or just practicing it to make it smooth and fast ;-)

A video showing Jodan Kendo with light sabers.  This was a full contact sparring session.

This is amazing.  Once the blades get here, i too will film some. I am 100% a novice, having one year of formal martial arts training.. back in '91 in 8th grade,  couldnt tell you the style.  Though i do spar with wooden blades and sticks with a couple buddies.  none of us have any formal training just whats stopped us from getting smacked over the decades from each other.  I got a blade for my dad as well.  Will film us both, and anyone else that is going to spar with one of my blades.  At first at least for me, it will be unformed just flashy light swings, until i figure out which of the blades is the one that calls to me.   Then ill pick a style and work on becoming proficient with it.

Hi everyone! EeRocKK here. Sorry I've been away for so long, but I'm still here, and I'm still proud to be a TPLA Apprentice. In that regard, the headmasters have been really busy creating and getting things ready for a solid future of lightsaber combat and fitness. We're still going strong, getting stronger, and still promoting fitness and safety with these combat lightsabers.

Check out one of the latest videos on major and minor orbits. (Why we "spin" our sabers the way we do)  Grin

It's free and it goes as far as you want it to. Start by browsing some of the videos in the TPLA YouTube channel. That will give you an idea of what we're about. We love questions and discussions, too!

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.

for some reason the image i get in my mind is from the last samurai when they are training tom cruze to use a sword and beating the crap out of him.

I have not done a lot of martial training but all the protective equipment aside, I have always found it to be more useful to simply move slow and not try to injure your partner. When i was boxing, we used gloves of course but the best way for me to learn not to get punched in the face was by being punched in the face a couple times. (and now my brain goes to DBZ abridged when Piccolo is training Gohan.....  "DODGE!!!")

So do we on this idea. I was told that the reasoning behind this is that faster speeds have the ability to hide one's mistakes and bad habits with training. Slowing down offers the practitioner a chance to see any areas that need improvement, or offers someone watching it on video a chance to spot them for you.

We beat the phrase "Slow is smooth; smooth is fast" to death for a good reason. Smiley

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

That's what I tell my kid when he asks me why I do the same stuff over and over and over...

There's no limit to how many times one needs to be reminded of the idea Bruce was talking about in that quote. Good post!
