Never mind that DC Comics Super Hero Cafe, Singapore’s biggest selling point may be that it has its own Jedi Academy. Seriously.
Established just last year, the Saber Authority — “Your Source For the Force” — teaches lightsaber dueling based on a blend of Asian martial arts. “When it comes to saber dueling, we don’t believe in fictional styles or make-believe combat,” the website states. “We also don’t believe in learning skills that cannot be used in real life or self defense situations. Why spend time learning something that does not help you in any way.”
The Saber Academy begins with foundation strikes and footwork, and then builds toward more advanced techniques, like the ever-popular double saber and saber-staff dueling. It’s not only for adults, either. As you can see from the photo above, younglings are welcome.
You don’t have to worry about your mid-chlorian count, either; the Saber Academy gladly accepts cash: A monthly membership starts at about $57 U.S. (less if you provide your own lightsaber). And if you’re in the market for a lightsaber, they can set you up with one of those, for the right price.
