Who are the Directors of Saberist Academy?

Saberist Academy is a consortium of LED saber practitioners with a culmination of 50 years experience of teaching various swordplay techniques.

Flynn Michael Brown

Our founder, Flynn Michael, formerly known as the founder of New York Jedi, created an ad-hock saber team in 2005 for the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, the initial performance was such a hit, dozens of people wanted to sign up right there, but there was no group to sign up with…. yet.

New York Jedi went on to become to most notorious of all Saber Groups in the world. (No, that’s not an exaggeration…), and continued on, inspiring hundreds of similar groups globally, of various martial interest and styles. Basic Practice, Acting, or leading a Tournament of heroes. Flynn is an unmistakable shining light on the path of learning the Arts of the Saber.

Fast forward to 2016 where Flynn now resides in the San Francisco Bay Area, and continues his love of teaching LED Saber Arts through the MetaStyles of Saberist Academy.  Bet you didn’t know he dances…. regularly.
