If you’re in or around the Las Vegas area on the 24th June 2011 then you might just want to check out this exciting opportunity for any Star Wars fan with even a passing interest in the techniques and skills required to wield a lightsabre.

Master swordsman Nick Gillard is giving a masterclass in the art of lightsabre technique, teaching for the first time since his stint as stunt co-ordinator on Revenge of the Sith. Click here for more details on how to be a part of this and below the break for more information.

Nick Gillard (assisted by Kyle Rowling) will teach a lightsabre master class at Combat Con in Las Vegas June 24th, 2011 (http://thecombatcon.com/jedi-fighting). For the first time ever, you will have an opportunity to learn lightsabre fighting from the man who created it for Star Wars I, II and III.

In this masterclass Nick will teach a complicated run from Revenge Of The Sith which covers all of the Jedi moves while explaining the rules involved in Jedi fighting. He will also teach how to write it yourself. This World Premiere master class will be the first time it’s been taught since Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen learned it!

This special masterclass will be a separate charge (TBD), but only participants registered for Combat Con will be able to attend so register now (http://thecombatcon.com/register). Space is very limited to make sure participants get a lot of individual attention. It will fill up quickly so don’t miss this rare opportunity to be trained by the man who created all the fights for Star Wars I, II and III!
