Customer Reviews

Very fun Jedi lightsaber class and we learned a lot!
Heather K. · January 20, 2013
This was so much fun! I went with a fellow Star Wars geek (we're both women) and they were so helpful and fun! They were patient with us, and taught us all the moves. At the end, they filmed us, so we could watch our "fight." It was fantastic! We're planning to go back once a month!
