Golden Gate Knights: San Francisco’s Own Jedi Academy

on Tuesday, May. 29th

The Force is strong with Alain Bloch, founder of the Golden Gate Knights. Bloch, a life-long devotee of the Star Wars franchise, teaches a class that allows his padawan leaners (that’s “students” for you non Force Sensitives out there) to unleash their inner Jedi through fight choreography.

In the Sith-free shadow of  the series reaching a milestone 35th anniversary last Friday, we offer up this look at Master Bloch’s own San Francisco Jedi Academy.
