Discover the art of light sabre sports combat... get focused, grow stronger, and have fun!

In this special intro workshop for ALL LEVELS (no prior experience necessary) you'll train with custom-built light sabres for sports combat, and discover the first 3 styles of the Ludosport duelling system:
  1. Shii-Cho: grounded, secure
  2. Makashi: explosive, elegant
  3. Soresu: spiralling, tactical

You can expect to:
  • Learn cool moves and sequences to take home
  • Test your reaction speed and skill at deflecting blaster shots (only non-lethal blaster guns will be used in this workshop)
  • Have fun improving your fitness and coordination
  • Be safely trained by a qualified instructor (Jedi rank) using specialised light sabre equipment
  • Gain insight into the Ludosport fighting system via smart exercises and techniques
  • Find out if you want to learn more...

Ludosport is a fun, smart, spirited combat sport taught in Italy since 2006, built on core values of service, care and respect (Se.Cu.Ri). The founding masters drew inspiration from various martial arts to develop fighting techniques true to the 7 styles of the Star Wars story universe, and based on a fictional sabre that had sparked the imaginations of audiences worldwide.

The high-end result is stylish, spontaneous, safe duelling in a sport that empowers its athletes - women and men, of all levels - to experience the thrill, fun, strength and awareness than comes with practising combat.

Watch "A Story of Light" for more on the origin of Ludosport.

  • sports clothes you can move in
  • sports shoes/trainers
  • water bottle
