There Has Been An Awakening in Oyster Bay


On July 29th, there was an awakening in John J. Burns Park. Hundreds of Oyster Bay locals gathered to watch “The Force Awakens” during the summer “Movies by Moonlight” series – and members of Empire Temple were there to train the younglings in the ways of the Force.

Jedi Master Jace Endo was joined by fellow Jedi: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Zephisto, Sehki Ban-Tehr, and Huron Lux and even the lovely ladies of the Sith: Darth D’elirium, Darth Khiana, Sionis, and Sanura to teach Padawans how to do a Force push; Shii-Cho (the first form of Lightsaber Combat); and a quick combination should they encounter the Sith. After our training sessions, our members and Master Obi-Wan Kenobi welcomed guests to the event prior.

We would like to thank the town of Oyster Bay for their hospitality and all the younglings and their families that joined us for training. We were proud to have been invited along with the 501st and Rebel Legion and hope to join for similar events in the future.

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.
