Empire Saber Guild - Brooklyn CyclonesAnother year and another Star Wars night for the Brooklyn Cyclones, and once again Empire Saber Guild was on hand to help with the festivities. Each year this event gets bigger and bigger and 2015 was no exception as Saber Guild was joined by their brother groups the 501st Empire City Garision and the Mandalorian Mercs Falco Clan to really put on a Star Wars show for the ages. Each group used their unique talents helped bring a level of Star Wars authenticity to the event had not seen in years before. The 501st brought the power of the empire, the Mercs brought their security presence and an amazing bounty hunter cage, and Saber Guild brought the lightsabers.

This year George Lucas made his first appearance at MCU Park kidnapping Princess Leia and holding her hostage untill the Jedi made J.J. Abrams add more CG to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Through out the game the Sith and Mandalorians managed to keep Princess Leia captured till the end of the game when the Jedi stormed the field in the biggest melee Saber Guild has ever performed. In the end the Jedi upset the Empire for another year and all was set right throughout the galaxy.

Empire Saber Guild - Brooklyn CyclonesAlso back this year was Saber Guild Padawan Training Institute. This year over 60 youngling took part in our two trainings help by Master Corsswind and Master Endo.  Each of the Padawans that completed the training received and certificate and a honorary membership to Saber Guild Padawan Training Institute.
And to top it all off at the end of the night Saber Guild raffled off 2 battle ready lightsabers form SaberForge that helped raise $900 dollars for St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital.

In each of the Brooklyn Cyclones Star Wars nights Saber Guild has been a big part and we can’t wait till next year to have another amazing experience!

P.S. The Cyclones also won the game!!!!

FAQ:
How old do I have to be to attend class?
Becasue this is a combat based class attendees must be 18 years or older to attend on their own. Anyone between the ages of 13-17 may participate in class but MUST have a parent or guardian present throughout the time of rehearsal. Children under he age of 13 may attend as spectators but must remain outside of the practice space with their parent or guardian at all times.

I Have Never Done This Before–Is That OK?
It does not matter if you are new to lightsabers or have been rehearsing for years. Come to a class, have a great time and work up a sweat.

What Do I Need to Bring?
You need to bring the most important thing–YOU! It’s also a good idea to bring workout clothes (sweatpants and a T-shirt are just perfect) and comfortable shoes. You don’t need a lightsaber to start off–there are always extra to go around. However, if you plan on coming frequently we can help you find one that is just right for you. IMPORTANT: No toy lightsabers - combat sabers only. These things are cool and look great but they will break once you get going.
