It was an event like this at Space City Comic Con when I found my saber family. I came in as someone who was “just interested” and ended up being a regular. And a few months after that at Amazing Houston, I helped teach a big crowd and loved every moment of it. Alas, we were not invited this year at ComicPalooza but this smaller … Continue reading Space City Sabers Event at Barbara Bush Library
Congratulations to Ludovic “Obi” Prieur-Beauchart on winning the National Tournament LudoSport France 2017! I got to meet this wonderful guy during a LudoSport Workshop here in Houston. I wish there is a Ludosport Academy here because I would kill to be able to teach one day. You’re an inspiration, Obi! Keep kicking tail!!! Continue reading Fendente!
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. I just don’t have enough space in the house to move around (and outside, I just … Continue reading Lightsaber Training: Dual-Wield and Saberstaff
Two weeks ago during saber class at Space City Sabers, the instructor had us create our own fighting choreography. I partnered with my friend Cindy who’s only been to a few classes but she sure can pick up choreography fast. I’m gonna say it again: it pays to have a background in dance sometimes. It was probably the craziest idea to practice dual-wield with a partner … Continue reading Dual Wielding a Lightsaber

And it’s an added blow when it’s one of your childhood heroes. It hits EXTRA HARD when you find yourself thinking “this could’ve been the Con you were at”… or have to … Continue reading PHX Comicon Arrest
I woke up today unsure on what costume I wanted to put on. Should I play it safe as Jyn or do I want to torture myself and have a panic attack while turning over the whole house just to find my missing Rey belt? Instead, I decided to go for the day’s theme: Revenge of the Sith. Yes, yes, I know! Kylo Ren technically isn’t a … Continue reading Free Comic Book Day at the MarqE
It definitely was a long day for me. First off, store meeting at 6:00am. SAY WHAAAAT? Yup, that’s retail for you. But at least I went to work in my Jyn costume and no one batted an eye. Hahaha! When I got to TV, I noticed that the group is a whole lot smaller today. Sunday, enough said. People have church or just want … Continue reading Traders Village Day 2: This Cosplayer is Pewped!!!
