The instrument we use to fight is a complex device, specifically designed for sport use. It is neither a toy nor a collector’s item.

Years of competitive sport practice have brought us unique expertise, which allows us to evaluate the best criteria for weight, size, balance and strength of components and materials.
With this knowledge, the light sabers used in LudoSport Academies are designed and tested to withstand the demands of intensive practice.

In comparison with other light sabers, sports sabers have an inverted position of the speaker, with a sound card placed in the center of the handle. It is thus possible to integrate a metal counterweight in the pommel, so as to balance the sword. Charging is facilitated by a micro-USB port. The shape of sports light sabers is designed to ensure the best technical grip for each style, whether it be with one or two hands.

In sporting light saber combat, the blades really make the difference. Made of flexible polycarbonate, the official standard has the best lightness/resistance ratio, and its transparency guarantees optimised diffraction of light. The tips are also made of polycabornate, and have a round shape for added security.

In sporting light saber combat, the primary source of safety is the technique. That’s why we do not need excessive protections.

In all Forms of combat, blows are codified to be carried in a controlled and safe manner. However, some basic protections are needed, starting with the hands: LamaDiLuce, our official supplier, has developed protective gloves with reinforcements specifically placed where practice has identified needs.

All men must wear genital protection during combat. Women can wear a breastplate.
Eye protection or masks are allowed, and mandatory for minor practitioners.
