5:00pm [5:00pm] Spar Wars
We will also be having a SPAR WARS/ parents night out on Sat, Jan 6th from 5:00-9:00. Obviously we are getting into the spirit of The LAST JEDI, but it also provides us a chance to educate in the disguise of fun. As some of you might have learned from the ESPN documentary, Jedi and light sabers were largely based on Eastern martial arts themes and the art of Kendo. The night will include pizza, basic kendo instruction, sparring and games, and we plan to teach a choreographed light saber duel which you can film. The event will include an action flex light saber that is safe and durable for actual sparring (but unfortunately not cheap—this is an actual training weapon with a Star Wars theme). Participants are encouraged to dress up in a Star Wars theme as much as they want. There will need to be a minimum number of sign ups, which must be done in advance to get the light sabers. Previous Spars Wars night or Weapons camp with the light saber will obviously get a huge discount.
