The Grand Forks Academy


The story behind:

Siblings Thomas Arntzen and Jennifer Hoffman opened the doors to the Grand Forks, ND Academy on November 7, 2017 in the Grand Cities Mall. Thomas had been watching LudoSport for many years and when he saw it had come to the US, the two took the opportunity to open their school.

As they have leased their venue during all mall business hours, they are willing to rent space by the hour for meetings or parties when it isn’t needed for classes. If people wish to learn to use the lightsabers during this time there will be an additional charge.



$100 for 4 hours

Meet the instructors:

Thomas Arntzen is the Head Instructor and was certified in Form I on September 29, 2017. He is also the Academy Sabermaster, meaning he is in charge of keeping all the School’s lightsabers in working order.

Jennifer Hoffman is an Assistant Instructor and Rector (Business Manager) of the Grand Forks Academy. She has not yet been certified but is working toward that goal.
