- This event has passed.
April 5 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$35
What: Playing with laser swords.
Where: Sydney Sabre – 112 Parramatta Road, Stanmore.
How much: $35 entry per fencer (or any Sydney Sabre session pass) gets you entry for refereed bouts. We will have limited fencing masks and combat glowsticks available for hire ($20 for a weapon).
$10 spectator entry.
What you need to bring: Protective gear. Don’t mess around here.
Motorcycle leathers are a good idea. At a minimum, padded gloves (like really padded, cricket gloves are ideal here), padded jacket with rigid armour over joints (skate armour works), a fencing mask (coaching hoods are a good idea) and your own neon bokken if you’ve got one (heavy grade polycarbonate, preferably silent)
MINIMUM AGE FOR FENCERS IS 15. We know lightsabers are fun, but they’re also no joke to get hit with.
We’re providing a venue and refereeing, because we have a venue and we know how to referee fencing. We’re not teaching how to fence lightsaber, because frankly we have no idea either. We can teach you how to fence actual sabre, or you can make it up as you go along.
What we’re providing is a consistent rule set and experienced referees. One fight at a time, guys.
See you Friday!
