Demonstration of Blade Skills

This video demonstrates some of my blade skills. Here is more detail about the forms:

1st scene: I demonstrate my power to focus my mind. This allows for accurate, decisive strikes. You see this in the first one handed 3 strike combo I perform.

2nd scene: 2 two handed power 2 strike combos. I hold the katana firmly with a two handed grip and strike left and right with quick, powerful blows. I do this twice. Then I prepare for another enemy from the side by glaring into his eyes and forcing my energy onto him. This can make enemies falter allowing the backwards grip strike I preform. This type of strike leaves me open to attack so I must be fast and brutal to succeed.

Scene 3: I demonstrate a jab-strike combo which allows me to quickly dispatch an enemy and dislodge them from my blade while striking another opponent at the same time. I then distance myself from my opponents and demonstrate a high head strike followed by a horizontal strike. With this technique I can crush an enemy’s skull and quickly chop them out of my way to make ready for my next attack.

Scene 4: In this scene I practice a form more reminiscent of the Ataru lightsaber form. I have been training more in this as it appeals to me greatly. The basis is using the force to augment your physical abilities. This allows me to strike faster and harder than normal. It is a wilder technique which requires extreme concentration to control.

Scene 5: I again practice Ataru with the Tanto blade. Here I am a bit faster as I have had more practice with this blade in Ataru form. All of my strikes are quick and powerful while my flips and spins confuse my opponent and cause him to have to guess where my next blow will land.

Sith Cabals (Dâgz), Part One


Acolytes who cannot train in-person at the Sith Academy complex under the Dark Lords are strongly encouraged to form Sith cabals (dâgz in the Black Tongue) in their local area. These cabals are a way to train and study with other Acolytes, recruit others to the dark side and expand the Empire’s tentacles into your community.

As you begin to develop your diamond-hard Sith will, you will find it very helpful to train with fellow Sith in this way; if you ever begin to go soft or lose heart, another member can light a fire under you and keep you on the Path – or expel you from our ranks.

If you have completed your Echelon One training (described in the first book in our Nine Echelons of Sith Mastery series – Sith Academy: The Path of Power) you may form a dâg at any time. If not, you should do so first before continuing, to ensure that you burn with the rakvashûk (power-craving) required of all would-be Dark Lords of the Sith.


Before saying anything more about cabals, let us state two things very clearly here for the record:

  1. Any Sith cabals formed according to the advice contained in this book shall not be affiliated with Sith Academy, the Temple of the Sith or the Dark Lords. Any such cabals shall be independent entities, and can expect no direct communication with the Dark Lords – no advice, encouragement, material support, in-person meetings or any other form of contact. All Sith cabals are on their own!
  1. The Dark Lords do not condone or encourage illegal behavior of any kind. Always know the law and operate within it. If you ever step outside the law, be prepared to face the consequences!

If handled correctly, a Sith cabal shouldn’t have anything to worry about from “the authorities.” As far as the mundane world is concerned, any group calling themselves “Sith” are just live action role-players (LARPers) and cosplayers, not terrorists, subversives or gangsters. No one actually takes guys in black robes with toy lightsabers who claim they’re going to take over the world seriously, right? Good! Let’s keep it that way!

A Dark Side Lamacracy

A Dark Lamacracy

I had a beautiful vision while I was out walking in the forest one day. It was inspired by a video I had recently watched of the Dalai Lama, speaking to an assembly of high-ranking lamas and monks inside a temple. But in my vision everyone was dressed in black – black-robed Sith lamas and Sith monks in ninja uniforms with katanas strapped across their backs. And on two elevated platforms sat the Dark Lords, their black robes draped over their folded legs, hoods pulled back to reveal shaven heads with black dots on their brows, each holding a beautiful black-bladed katana across their laps with the red Sith nonagram engraved on the blade. Behind them, a huge gray gong with the same nine-pointed symbol emblazoned across it was mounted on a circular ebony stand.

The Dark Lords were speaking to the assembled Sith Academy disciples, radiating the sinister, mystic power which had earned them their exalted titles. The black spots between their eyes, symbols of their endarkened “third eyes” (gral-zwotikz), gave their gazes an eerie, hypnotic force.  As they spoke their passion grew, and they began chanting the Sith Academy mantra in unison with their disciples:

Power is our passion
War is our way
Darkness is our destiny
The Force shall set us free

After many minutes of this chant, the words gradually quickening and growing louder, the Dark Lords began brandishing their swords in circles around their heads, and the lamas and monks did likewise, until the whole chamber was in a frenzy of twirling blades and war-chanting.

Finally, the two Dark Lords shouted in unison: “Stop!”, and the assembled disciples froze in their places, swords in random positions, mouths open, limbs contorted, bodies absolutely still. They held this position for what seemed like an eternity, until finally one of the Lords struck the gong and shattered the silence. The disciples relaxed and expertly sheathed their swords across their backs. The Dark Lords bowed to the audience and said in unison: “May the dark side serve you.” The disciples bowed back and said as one: “And serve you.”

Let us make this vision a reality! A video of a group of us acting in this manner would be incredibly powerful – demonstrating our reality, our hierarchy, our unity and our dark force power. For I envision the Sith as a kind of dark side lamacracy – an unbroken lineage of “endarkened Dalai Lamas” called Dark Lords who wield temporal and spiritual authority across time and space – and I hope this paints a clearer picture. The esoteric hierarchy of Tibetan Buddhism is an inspiring model for us, which we can combine with other Eastern and Western esoteric traditions to create something new and powerful for our time.

Why I Joined Sith Academy: An Apprentice’s Testimonial

Why I Joined Sith Academy

{ From the Holocron of Apprentice Tharuk }

Have you ever seen a door that you wondered what was behind it? Well thats what Sith academy was for me. I saw this black door and I opened it and walked into the darkness within it. I came to this Academy for myself and myself only. I am a selfish individual and I’m proud to say that. To be Sith is to be selfish. I was born with dark gifts waiting to be unleashed! I won’t say all of them because only a fool will reveal all his secrets in one setting. I like to think of myself as a dark sensitive. I’m able to pick up on others emotions to my own benefit. So beware to all those who oppose me. I Am able to use the force and drain your life essence, in turn it makes me stronger!

Ever since I started on the Sith path, and even before I officially joined the Academy, my life has been forged and proven by the Sith Code:

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall set me free.

“Peace is a lie.” How true are these words to you? For me they are always a reminder of the truth of life. Now matter how much you may wish for peace, it will never come. Know this. The only person you will ever have is yourself.

“There is only Passion.” Another truth for my life. My passions have kept me alive all these years and they continue to serve me.

“Through Passion I gain Strength.” The dark side is about survival and only the strong may survive in this world and all who are weak will perish. We live in a light side corrupted world, were they teach our children that everyone is made equal. Death to the fools! No one is truly equal. Some are stronger and cunning. Others are slaves and only follow those who have power.

“Through Strength I gain power.” All who are Sith crave power. This should be in our very core for existing.

“Through Power I gain victory.” The dark side as made me see the truth to this light side world and the Academy is training me to vanquish it from my life. This is true victory a Sith should claim. The Sith Academy is the gateway to true victory.

“Through Victory my chains are broken, the force shall set me free.” As Sith we are aware of our chains. I was once covered in light side chains. They were giving to me by cursed lightsiders and their followers, But I soon realized that the dark side sets you free from all chains and limitations. I used the dark side of the force and bended it to my will, to free me and let me become a free and powerful individual!

A closing thought… Know this my Sith brethren: the light is fleeting from this world. We have only just begun our dark invasion to save all those who are powerful and vanquish all those who are weak and of the light. I know this for Darth Omega himself showed me a vision of this world and what has yet to become. So raise your lightsabers high and salute to the Empire and to the Sith!

Power is My Passion
War is My Way
Darkness is my Destiny
The Force shall set me free!

Morning of the Black Magicians

It is a useful viewpoint to see all of human civilization as a battlefield of black magicians. Down through the ages, opposing occult schools and orders have waged endless metaphysical battles – their magical conflicts often manifesting in terrible wars upon the material plane.

For more than a thousand years, Western civilization was dominated by the Catholic magocracy centered in Rome – an order of sorcerers who employed strange rituals of symbolic cannibalism, performed liturgies in a dead language, employed brutal violence to suppress heretics and used sophisticated memetic engineering to convert heathens and control societies. But the reign of the Roman sorcerers waned due to two great historical events: The Protestant Reformation led by Martin Luther, which would spark a brutal Thirty Years’ War and a reordering of power in Europe, and the dawn of the Enlightenment, which saw a new breed of rationalist philosophers and scientists become the ascendant magi in the Western world. These new Enlightenment cultists wielded reason, science and industry as their primary tools of power, and for the past several centuries they have been highly successful in spreading their potent brand of magic across the globe.

At around the same time that the Enlightenment was dawning, a new empire was being conceived by occultists across the English Channel in Britain. There, in the 16th century, magician-mathematician John Dee is said to have created the “British Empire” meme, and promoted an ideology of Anglocentric Christianity, British-Israelism and naval power as a means of dominating the world. The following centuries of British imperial expansion across the globe, which saw Britannia become an empire of unprecedented global reach, is a testament to the power of Dee’s vision, and a source of inspiration to the Dark Lords.

In the 18th century, the United States of America was born, the brainchild of Freemasons and Enlightenment cultists like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. America’s founding fathers saw an opportunity to create a new kind of nation, one based on Enlightenment ideals of pragmatism, reason, capitalism and republicanism rather than monarchy, magical thinking, religion and tradition. The American revolution, and the French revolution which soon followed, would inspire the overthrow of the entire European feudal order during the 19th century, and sow global disruption throughout the 20th. America has had a brilliant run, but by now it is rather obvious to the Dark Lords that its magic has waned and its civilization has gone into terminal decline. They say the candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long, and for a nation that has burned as brightly as the U.S.A., it is not surprising that its candle has begun to flicker out after less than a century as world leader.

America’s rise to global dominance was made possible by perhaps the most dramatic manifestation of metaphysical warfare in world history. For World War II was really a cosmic war between opposing occult ideologies; on one side, you had the Anglo-Saxon, Jewish and Freemasonic descendents of John Dee and Benjamin Franklin, whose magic expressed itself in ideals like financial capitalism, liberalism and democracy. On the other side, you had the Axis sorcerers, whose pagan, theosophist, Shinto, Zen and Islamic sorcery manifested as fascism, holy war, theocracy and large scale occult power rituals. Truly, the world has never seen such an awesome contest of magical wills, and only the industrial might of the Allies and some good fortune (or some would say, divine providence) allowed them to escape the thousand year Reich of “dark lords” Hitler, Hirohito and their minions.

In the Near East, the Islamic sorcerers have reigned supreme for 1400 years, spreading their rituals of obeisance to moon god Allah, stone worship and obedience to the Quran to Europe, Africa, Asia and now the world. But the Islamic empire went into decline centuries ago, unable to compete with the might of the West’s technological wizardry, and has been bitterly trying to regain its lost glory ever since. In recent years, Muslim magic seems to have increased in potency and ambition, bringing revolutions in Iran and Egypt, the 9-11 attacks, global jihad, the “Islamic State,” and the prospect of a renewed war of civilizations that could result in World War III. It remains to be seen whether this new outbreak of Islamic will to power represents the rise of a new Caliphate, or the death throes of a dysfunctional and obsolete religion.

Meanwhile in China, the dragon has awakened and begun to shake the world. The metaphysical significance of this epochal event was hinted at by a Taoist sorcerer this way:

“A new era is now dawning for mankind. As the curtain opens on a new century, a new play with new performers is about to replace the one that is currently running on the world stage. After a period of fifteen hundred years, the order of power is about to change drastically. From now on, those who understand the principles of Chi, the vital energy of the universe, will rule the world. The future of any nation will soon be measured by the level of intelligence of its citizens and the strength of their Chi energy. Since the measure of a person’s intelligence is commensurate with the amount of Chi energy in his body, the knowledge needed to increase an individual’s internal power will soon be of paramount importance to all.” –Min Tzu, Chinese Taoist Sorcery

This is a beautiful statement of the Sith magical worldview; for we also believe that an individual’s Force power, and the collective Force power of organizations and nations, will be the true measure of power on this planet going forward. Nor do we dispute Min Tzu’s implication that China, with its vast population, growing ambitions, ancient traditions of celestial emperors, Taoist sorcery, “chi”-powered supermen and collective destiny, may soon become this planet’s leading empire.

There are many more examples of the role of magical cabals in building empires and new orders that I could discuss: From the lost beginnings of the Pharaohnic dynasty to the occult origins of the Third Reich; from the roots of classical civilization in the Greco-Roman mystery religions to the Zen-Shinto mysticism animating Imperial Japan; from the Tantric and Shamanic foundations of the Tibetan Lamacracy to the Kabalistic influence on the creation of modern Israel; much of history has been written by esoteric orders who harness the power of their magically-enhanced wills and imaginations to change the world.

In the Star Wars universe, the magical battlefield was simplified down to two opposing schools: the Jedi and the Sith. On our planet, the situation is considerably more complex and the antagonists have different names, but the essence of the struggle is the same. Jew vs. gentile, Muslim vs. infidel, Christian vs. pagan, Catholic vs. Protestant, atheist vs. believer, and all sides seeking the same prize: unlimited power. Darth Sidious said that “the Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power,” and this is also true in our galaxy. For we, the Sith black magicians of this planet, understand that there are no good guys in these eternal cosmic struggles – only contests of wills to determine whose Force power is supreme, and whose visions of empire will be victorious. May it be our black magic that prevails, and brings a new dawn to this world!

What Are Sith?

sith_nazgul-1What are Sith?

We are unholy warriors.

We come to refute the lies of the light side, deconstruct its civilization, infect its culture, tear down its temples and overthrow its reign of weakness.

We come to unleash dark atavisms in the collective mind. We come to bring fire, passion and the sword. We come to terrorize and awaken.

Run mundanes! Awaken sleepers!

We herald the Apocalypse and the New Age! We command the conquest of the Dark Side! We claim all nations, all planets, all stars – they are ours!

We are sorcerers, poets and soldiers! We are beasts, men and gods!

We are Sith!


An Invitation to the Dark Side


The purpose of this blog is twofold:

1) To discuss and develop the Sith Path for this galaxy, as revealed to me by the last of the Sith Lords of a galaxy far, far away and a long time ago. The Sith Path is a philosophy and an esoteric training system for mastering the Dark Side of the Force and acquiring unlimited power.

2) To create the first Sith order in this galaxy and lay the foundation for the establishment of a Galactic Empire. I believe this planet is ripe for a new spiritual order, and will be discussing my ideas for creating such a regime under the black banner of the New Sith.

Let me make clear from the outset that I am not here to spoon-feed anyone the knowledge I have gained through long years spent gazing into abysses, cultivating dark energies and communing with Dark Lords. If you wish to learn the ways of the Dark Side and prove yourself worthy of the name “Sith”, you will need to challenge yourself and others as relentlessly as I have. You will also need to put aside all childish notions of goodness, light and a benevolent universe. You will have to learn to look this vast, hostile cosmos in the void and be unbowed. You must desire to shake your fist at the stars and shout: “One day, you will all be mine!” You must take as your first principle: “I will, therefore I am.”

If you still wish to walk the path of the Sith, the first question I put to you is this: what do you have to offer the Order? How can you help us build the Galactic Empire? What special skills, talents or resources do you possess which can further the rise of the Sith? The New Sith are not interested in garden-variety seekers and self-improvers; we are looking for the Force-sensitive, the iron-willed, the ambitious and the gifted. Weak disciples will be ruthlessly culled from the Order, and need not apply!

With those warnings out of the way, let me proceed with my introduction to Dark Side philosophy and metaphysics…

The first thing to understand about the Sith of this galaxy is that our arts manifest differently here than for the Sith of legend, because we exist in another part of the Multiverse which obeys different natural laws. In our universe, the Force may be thought of as Dark Energy, which doesn’t bind the galaxy together but drives all galaxies apart. Here, the Force does not manifest so strongly in the physical plane; it is primarily a mental energy which focuses the will, heightens perceptions, increases vitality and transcends all limits. To be a master of the Force in this universe is to place no bounds on your thinking and to cultivate unlimited power. Maybe some day this mastery will translate into the ability to move spaceships directly with your mind or shoot lightning bolts from your fingertips, but for now the Sith master must use technology to accomplish such things like everyone else.

The primary goal of the esoteric Sith path is the deconditioning and reprogramming of your mind so as to remove all inner limits to your power. Light Side adepts speak of “Enlightenment”, but for the Sith there is only “Empowerment.” I will have more to say about deconditioning in a future post; for now, suffice it to say that separating yourself spiritually from Light Side society is an essential first step along the path to becoming a Sith master.

At this point you might be thinking: “Why would I want to become a Sith master? It all sounds rather harsh and unpleasant. And aren’t the Sith the bad guys? Shouldn’t I strive to master the Light Side of the Force instead, become a Jedi and defend the galaxy from evil-doers?”

If you think this way, it is unlikely that you have the dark gift required of a Sith master. Sith masters are both born and made, but usually show a strong inclination toward the Dark Side from an early age. If you have never sympathized with the villains in the movies, never admired the strong, ruthless conquerors of history and fiction, never felt disgust for the Judeo-Christian, the weak and the timid, then you are probably not destined for the Sith Path. However, if you do lean toward the Dark Side but require more persuading, let me briefly attempt to justify Sith philosophy.

This universe operates on the principle of duality, on the yin and yang of which the Taoist masters speak. Without the yang, or Dark Side, there is no opposition to the Light Side’s yin. Without opposition, there is no motivation; without motivation, there is no action; without action there is only stagnation. As Sith master Uthar Wynn put it:

Without strife, your victory as no meaning.
Without strife, you do not advance.
Without strife, there is only stagnation.

This is the essence of Sith philosophy: We are the sowers of strife, the war-makers and the Force-polarizers, because without opposition nothing in the universe moves. A world without adversaries, innovators and status quo-violators is a world ruled by banality, boredom and inertia. The Jedi, the peace-makers and the equality-mongers embrace the anti-life side of the cosmic duality, and are therefore preaching a lie. Life is by its very nature an act of violence against nature, an assertion of your will over the world, a violation of cosmic equilibrium; harmony with the universe is found only in death. The Sith embrace the life Force, the Will to Power, as the summum bonum – the highest good – rather than resisting it like the Jedi do as the summum malum – the supreme evil. Michael Aquino, the brilliant founder of the Temple of Set, explained it this way:

Why was Darth Vader so fascinating? [Why are all of history’s and fiction’s Darth Vaders so fascinating?] The answer is that he represents the Form of intellectual separateness from the inertia of the cosmos. While the Rebels in the film seemed to be fighting for the cause of individuality, in fact they were doing so in a superficial sense – in the way that an animal might struggle to escape from a trap. The real individualist was Darth Vader, who determined to bend the Force to his purposes rather than to disintegrate his Will and surrender it to the inertia of the Force [as Ben advised Luke to do]. Intellectual separateness from the natural order is a frightening notion to humans; hence they define it as “evil” and conjure up Satans to personify it in mythology. But, because their minds contain elements of independence whether they like it or not, they find “evil” alluring. And so Darth Vader became a cult object

Darth Vaders can be destroyed only by greater Darth Vaders, or by accident. Again this was illustrated in Lord of the Rings, wherein a direct challenge to Sauron by Gandalf would have resulted merely in Gandalf’s replacing him. The Saruman sub-plot explored this hypothesis. It was necessary for Sauron to be destroyed “by accident”. But then Middle-earth became more primitive and less magical, because a high level of intellectual separateness from nature had given way to a lower level. Who cares what happened in Middle-earth after Sauron? No one; we know it was bound to be dull.

This, then, is the basic philosophy of the Sith as I understand it. It certainly isn’t for everyone, or even for many. But for the few who can walk it, the Sith Path can be a way to unlimited power and success. If you are perceptive enough to realize that behind the Light Side façade of many of your most celebrated heroes lurks the spirit of a Sith Lord, you may be one of us. If you see through the deceptions and lies of Light Side slave society and wish to join the ranks of the masters, you are invited to explore the Sith Path with me here. Search your feelings; if you truly feel the call of the Dark Side, I ask you to join me as we build our Sith Order and lay the foundation for the Galactic Empire of the future.
