SaberMartialArts.com is the official website of the Saber Martial Arts Foundation Inc. The Foundation is a California non-profit corporation formed in 2018 by leaders and instructors of lightsaber combat schools from across the United States. These instructors bring decades of experience in real-world martial arts, including various eastern martial arts such as Kendo, Bushido, and Karate, as well as western practices such as HEMA, Fencing, and other forms of weapon-based combat. Over the last several years, these leaders have been working closely together to develop a new form of a truly mixed martial art applied to lightsaber-based combat styles which we call Saber Martial Arts (SMA).
The Saber Martial Arts sporting activities were developed in close collaboration between the following schools:
- San Diego Sabers
- Phoenix Saber Academy
- Penguin Saber Academy
- Hawaii Saber Academy
- Masters Club of Delaware
We recognize that variation in style is healthy for building the community as well as allowing students and members to grow through developing a diversification of their skills, while still maintaining synchronicity in martial spirit and approach.
