James Billings – Instructor Forms 1 & 2
James is a lifelong fan of movies and video games, especially those featuring swords and light sabers. When LudoSport visited San Francisco for the Awakens event in 2016, he jumped at the chance to live out a childhood dream. Hooked from the start, he participated in the first US Instructors Course and became one of first stateside instructors. Since then, he helped back the campaign to bring LudoSport to the US, and assisted with the founding of the San Francisco Academy: The Order of the Western Sun. When the academy needed a Master Sabersmith to look after and maintain its armory, he discovered his passion for electronics, and has since taken up building custom sabers as a hobby. Most recently, he passed his second Instructors Course and has begun teaching Combat Style II to the more advanced students.
