Welcome to the New York Jedi!
The Light Saber Enthusiasts Collective.
“The only color that matters is the blade’s.” – Drezx Qam
"We are the church of SciFi-entology! – Darth Jinduri"
(NewYorkJedi.com Mission Statement)

The New York Jedi are a community of people and teachers who share practical Martial Arts-based and Stage Combat oriented Light Saber techniques in order to create illuminated stage combat! But we are not character or cannon specific to any story franchise. We give you the exciting option of creating your own hero, from whatever source inspires you! We just focus on the whole light saber thing! Check out the details! Contact us for private lessons or special events as well.

How can you be a part of it?!
EASY! Just Register on our forums at SaberWars.com to become a member of our on-line community, and get to know our members from around the world! And, yes, we offer classes locally in Light Saber Stage Combat. This means, we show you practical knowlege of how to use a light saber, as well as how to "Wow the crowd." Yeah, that’s what we do… but most importantly, it’s about our community. Like-minded people sharing thier "Geekdom," and having a good time together showin it off! Ever lost 50 lbs from having fun? We have. 🙂

We perform at many different types of events: Comic conventions, corporate events, etc, and we’ve even appeared at the debut fo the new Star Wars Postal Stamp unveiling at the Empire Post Office, NYC in May 2007! Contact us for your party today! New York Jedi is owned and managed by Thrills and Skills. Inc as a publically offered social club for "action figure wanna-be’s."
