Learn the art of Jedi fighting from the man who created it for Star Wars I, II and III!
Sith Sense: Light Sabre Master Class At Philadelphia Comic Con
Wizard World attendees who want to learn the art of Jedi fighting – from the man who created it for Star Wars I, II and III, will have a unique opportunity to register for the “Sith Sabre Class,” for the first time ever at a Wizard World event. This rare event, taught by Nick Gillard (assisted by CC Weske) requires a separate registration fee and space is limited.
Gillard will teach a complicated run from REVENGE OF THE SITH which covers all of the Jedi moves while explaining the rules involved in Jedi fighting. He will also teach how to write it yourself. The elements of the class are the same taught to Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen for the film.
Participants should come in comfortable attire. While they can participate in costume, they will for work up a sweat in this class, so sweat/training pants and a t-shirt are recommended. The floor is carpeted so leather soled shoes without too much grip are recommended as there will be plenty of turning on the balls of their feet.
Participants should bring their own training lightsabres. Commercially made replicas are often too fragile and have too many knobs on the hilt. The hilt needs to be smooth due to the amount of movement in the hand. Blunted ski poles with the basket removed are recommended, and should be chosen the same way as done for skiing. Failing that, bamboo with a gaffer tape handle will do.
The Jedi Fighting class will be $150 (separate show admission is required). Each session will last 90 minutes, and there are seven to choose from (Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
