TSL Tournaments

International LED Saber Combat organization “The Saber Legion” brings their unique brand of galactic fencing to CombatCon for TSL VII.

HYPERSPACE SABER FENCING

The Saber Legion Annual Tournament

The Saber Legion, or TSL, is an international saber combat organization that specializes in dueling with the iconic LED saber from everyone’s favorite sci-fi fandom while allowing those who have specific training from all sword based martial sports to incorporate that training into their methodologies of swordplay within the ring. Our mission in The Saber Legion is one where we are  committed to cultivating a safe, fun, inclusive global community of LED saber sport enthusiasts.  The Saber Legion represents the values of honor, respect and humility, volunteerism, transparent leadership, equitable rules, and healthy competition and challenges for all experience levels. 

Our motto “United Through Sabers” is the foundation of our connection that brings enthusiasts from all walks of life together in one amazing community.

PRIZES, GLORY, AND LIFELONG MEMORIES

FENCING’S LATEST GLOW-UP

Curious about The Saber Legion and the various tournaments they hold at CombatCon? Across The Saber Legion Channel you can see many videos explaining the rules, processes, and how a match is judged and scored.

The Saber Legion hosts 6 different types, or divisions of combat. The entry level and base of TSL is the STANDARD Division. This is often called the Every-Person Tournament, where on any given day anyone could walk home with the International Tournament Belt.

Women’s and 50+ Masters Division are Diverse and Community driven tournaments that celebrate the inclusion of underrepresented communities in the LED Sabering community.

Tag Team and Exotic Weapons Division are based on the classic Standard Tournament ruleset but with additional add-ons for fighters exploring alternate weapons and working with partners in the ring.

Finally, The Unity Division will be back this year. Unity Division is also called continuous fighting. The rules are for Master Level fighters who are looking for challenges and can stand to continuously fight for 90- 120 solid seconds without stopping, utilizing martial techniques and specific scoring challenges.

A WHOLE NEW KIND OF MARTIAL SPORT

What is The Saber Legion?

Founded in 2015, TSL has hosted successful annual saber tournaments and is excited to have TSL VII hosted by CombatCon in 2023. With Charters all over the world, the annual tournament has become the hub for experienced and new fighters to find an equal field to test themselves against the best our sport has to offer. The ruleset is simple, focusing on keeping the sword play fun and safe. By keeping the rules general there is no favor to any “real world” fighting system. The Custom Saber is not a “traditional weapon” so it has the flexibility to adapt to the user that wields it. Most systems pit practitioners of a specific style against practitioners of the same style, but in TSL you will get to face off with fighters from many different martial backgrounds. Oftentimes this fighting style represents the MMA of sword fighting; pitting many different kinds of duelists against each other for an ultimate match up.
