While we take Saber Martial Arts seriously, we must also make sure we are having fun! Sometimes your training will be hard, it may break you down at times – that’s part of the process – but in all things we should strive towards balance. We’re all fans of Star Wars, we enjoy our escape into the Galaxy Far, Far Away – so it’s our responsibility to also have fun while training in real-world, full-contact lightsaber combat.
It’s not uncommon at all to see practitioners of SMA have fun, smile, joke, and laugh while at training or even in the fighting arena. As you progress along your journey in SMA, you will find things out about yourself and others – ultimately this must be something you enjoy. So don’t forget to smile, to laugh – and don’t worry if you make lightsaber sounds when you’re practicing your velocities (we all do it!).
