Meeting up with Saber Guild Jakku Temple

It’s so hard to be a part of an LFL group when everyone is about 2 hours away from you. I’m a member of Saber Guild’s Jakku Temple and I think it’s safe to joke that I’m in the Niima Outpost here in Houston since everyone else is in Austin and San Antonio. But I feel blessed I got to hang out with these folks … Continue reading Meeting up with Saber Guild Jakku Temple

Lightsaber Training: Dual-Wield and Saberstaff

Well I know for sure that I am going to be sore in the morning. My left arm already hurts but man does it feel good! The instructors gave us links to “homework” videos and although I’ve watched them all, there is nothing like actually being to do it.

It was probably the craziest idea to practice dual-wield with a partner … Continue reading Dual Wielding a Lightsaber

Photoshoot at Hermann Park

Herman Park is definitely one of my favorite parks here in Houston. I’m not outdoorsy because the heat always gives me a migraine but I love this park so much because it’s shaded by a lot of trees.

Lightsaber Forms: Oh, the Choices!!!

I’ve been training with Space City Sabers since I first came across them at Space City Comic Con in March. They’re probably the second awesomest set of people I’ve ever met in my life (second only to my Disney family) and we don’t just train and duel, we actually talk about non-Star Wars stuff too. At first, the lessons were only once every two weeks … Continue reading Lightsaber Forms: Oh, the Choices!!!
