There is no try

Evolve your Saber Skills

"There is no try". There is training.

This Online Course is an exciting way to learn "Form 1", the first of many combat styles codified in Ludosport. Originally inspired by the characteristics that define the style of Jedi combat - the well know "Shii-Cho" in the Star Wars saga, LudoSport Masters evolved it into a Form with an own identity, independent from the fictional inspiration. It is a real, complete fencing form for competitive sporting duels, used in competitions and tournaments of the entire LudoSport network.

Is this course meant for me? Sure.

This is the Course you're looking for

  • You're a fan of the world-famous Saga and... Ooooh, my God, there's a Light Saber sport?!?

  • You want to discover a new way to train, anywhere, anytime, combining reality and fantasy

  • You own a Light Saber and use it for pleasure, but you have always dreamed of taking your way of moving to a higher level of realism

  • You already practice another fencing discipline and want to experience something new, discovering how to adapt the techniques already known to an imaginary weapon

  • You want to join LudoSport Network, but there's no academy in your area

You don’t need any specific requisites to follow this course!

"Ready are you?" Yes, you are.

If you don’t have a light saber, all what you need is a stick, an umbrella, or a broomstick, a bit of space where to practise and... Imagination! This course was made with the guide of LudoSport Founder Masters so that you too can learn all the techniques conceived for this amazing sport

Meet your instructor

Who is Dante, your Online Coach, and what is LudoSport

I graduated from the acting course at the National School of Cinema in Rome in 2018, and straight after I became a part of this first enormous permanent immersive Italian show created by Marco Balich together with scientific collaboration from the Vatican Museums. The show was called Universal Justice and I play the main role of Michelangelo for a full year. I wouldn’t, however, have been able to take part in any of these projects if I had never joined Ludosport. I am here because, through me, or rather through Dante, your guide on this awesome journey, you too will have the possibility of learning everything that the founder masters taught me in person (I am one of their direct pupils!) … and become a part of this bigger world.

Meet your instructor

Who is Dante, your Online Coach, and what is LudoSport

LudoSport comes to life in Milan, Italy, from the work and passion of three friends who combine their skills and create a new combat sport that uses an iconic weapon: a sword with a blade of pure energy. They create a system of different forms of armed combat, progressive in complexity and refinement. Around them comes a group of enthusiasts that grows beyond national borders and generates, through the common language of the sword they use, a worldwide community linked by ancient values such as sport and deep as the bond that binds them. The training path is rich and stimulating, going from the single sword to the two short swords and stick techniques: all entirely original and designed around an iconic and fascinating weapon, a blade of pure energy that cuts everything but itself.
