This new section will be a place for our dueling members to share techniques, arrange for dueling clubs or to post videos of events pertaining to dueling or choreographed saber combat.
Lucien will be the section moderator since he has the most experience and interest in this field.
I've never fully learned how to do the backspin. I know its not very practical when dueling/sparring but it does look cool when you are doing any sort of choreography or demonstration like those of us that troop.
I look forward to learning a few moves myself so I welcome this new section.

I'd like to take a second to thank Luke for putting this up here for us. It was a sorely lacking aspect of the forum and I hope it will grow into something truly awesome. Also, I'm glad we will now have a home for some of our more "combative" members.
I would also like to welcome Jedi Master Lucien Kane to the board as moderator. We thought you would be the perfect man for the job Lucien and are happy to ha e you guiding us into the world of "ouch that hurt".
Welcome to your new home buddy, just do me a favor.........try not to break it.

First off I'd like to say thank you for this privilege. I am really honored to be a part of this community and I cannot wait to see this section flourish (pun intended) I'll be posting an in depth introduction soon on saber combat, safety, techniques, my personal approach towards the seven forms etcetera within the weekend. Thanks again for this opportunity!
Edit: I'll try not to break too many things... No promises

I should point out, that Nero is actually one of the newer masters with Terra Prime, because of his heavy fencing, and coaching backround. if anyone wants to learn anything about Makashi, and how to use it, he is the man to go to.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?
Jun 23, 2017 16:37:26 GMT -5
ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
