My name is Adrian Ridgway. I would like to take the time to talk to each of you about my lightsaber stage combat group, VICSabers. The idea behind this group is a fairly simple one: allowing people to learn the art of the lightsaber in a safe and friendly environment and become that inner hero (or villain) they have always dreamed to be. Following in the footsteps of the many LSC groups situated in America, all under the banner of Saberwars (http://saberwars.com/
), members will learn how to perform safe and very exciting lightsaber stage battles for audiences of all ages at conventions, special events or anywhere else that would love to have us.
One important thing to note: this group and the characters all members portray can be "non-canon". By non-canon, I mean you can be anything you want to be, such as a Predator Jedi or Romulan Sith! The choice is purely up to you.
I would like to show you some videos to help everyone gain an understanding of what would be in store. Here are a few from the archives of the New York Jedi (the people responsible for this craze to sweep the world):
"The Pack vs The Sun Clan" - New York Comic Con, 2008
"Xeo Xeniro and Seshmira vs Lybro" - Wizard World Philly, 2011
"Jedi Master Magnius vs Jedi Master Zak-Ri Dicoo" - Wizard World Philly, 2011
"Saber Academy" - NYCC, 2007
We also have a Facebook, Twitter and YouTube Channel (currently WIP):
If anyone has any questions, tips, anything that can help the group OR if you want to express your interest, feel free to reply here, PM me or contact me via Facebook. I can't wait to see what people have to say and I definitely cannot wait to get the phenomenon spread across our lovely country!
