What are we?
A global community of LED saber combat sport enthusiasts. You might think the sport itself is our secret sauce, but to us, it's a way to bring all sorts of people together from all around the world to make friends, have fun, play with amazing laser swords, and safely challenge ourselves to learn and grow.
How much does it cost to be a member?
Nothing. Simply by signing the MHHA and showing up, you're part of TSL. You will probably want to buy your own saber and armor, but those belong to you, and you can buy them at your own pace and on your own budget. Eventually, you might choose to buy into the Rank program as you grow, but it's not required.
Why require so much armor?
Because we love you. Safety is our first priority, and the material in our saber blades is also used to make police batons. It can break bone, particularly fingers, wrists, collarbones, ribs, teeth, and eye sockets. We don't hit hard - just a touch will do - but the armor is to protect from accidents that happen in the excitement of a match.
Why do I need to use facebook?
We have a wide variety of social media, but Facebook remains our home (for now) until someone else is able to meet all the regular needs of our organization (groups, chats, scheduled events, photos and videos, streaming, file sharing, and more) in just one website.
