Hi, I'm Carey
Author of 'Lightsaber Combat for Beginners'
For over twenty years I have held an interest in swordsmanship and a lot of that was due to the Star Wars films. The movies helped inspire me to study the martial arts. With the new film 'Force Awakens' and the easy availability of high-quality stunt lightsabers suitable for sparring, many people are starting up fitness clubs to duel and practice film inspired choreography. Sadly many people don't live anywhere near some of these clubs or have the necessary knowledge to start their own.
I wrote 'Lightsaber Combat for Beginners' out of a desire to provide a solution for this problem. I wanted to make it possible for anyone that wants to learn how to duel like a Jedi to do so and I think I achieved this, but I'm not done yet: I've started the process of writing a follow-up book and will soon begin a blog to discuss the topic regularly.
By purchasing this book you will help me fund the creation of new books while also helping yourself learn an exciting martial art system -- saber combat -- that I hope will help lead to lightsaber dueling becoming a modern sport.
If you have any questions for me, feel free to reach out to me via this book's Facebook Page, Lightsaber Combat.
