The area
Address
Neighborhood: Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialized Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
How to get there
  • Place-Saint-Henri • 8 min walk

Kids had a blast
Dec 2019 • Family
My kids are ages 5-11 and they had an amazing time! They learned different saber and combat moves and choreography, and then had a blast duelling. I definitely recommend this to star wars fans

would recommend it
Sep 2019 • Friends
Our trainer was really knowledgeable about swordfighting and answered all of my questions. He always made sure that our equipment was operational and nobody gets hurt. After the safety instructions he showed us a few moves for beginners and slowly increased the difficulty. The session was in my opinion a nice mix of instructions, training and sparring. It doesn't matter whether you are a fan of sci-fi or just sports - I would recommend it.

Force Academy-Good Concept
Aug 2019
So the concept is cool, but key is having light sabers that actually work. Most of the light sabers (including mine and my husband's) did not light up despite changing out the battery. Again, these are light saber's, key emphasis on light. While that was disappointing, my daughter had a blast once she was given a saber that was her size. Lot's of opportunity to improve here.

Disappointed.
Aug 2019 • Family
Booking 35 people for a session of light saber training when you have maybe 10 functioning light sabers is not cool!! Then it is more frustrating when they have a " we don't care but we will take pictures as if everyone is having fun" attitude doesn't help. I had a light saber in my hand for the last 7 minutes of the one hour when a lady offered hers.

It was a lot of fun. Fast paced!
May 2019 • Friends
Very fun activity for friends and family though the light saber part is not recommended for young kids as the sabers can hurt if you hit your 'enemy' by accident. :)
My only complaint is that the bathrooms were not very clean and most of the stalls in the ladies had no paper. Might have been an off day or something but otherwise was a great fun and the staff were very nice and gave information and answered questions no problem.

Great family fun
Apr 2019 • Family
Pros:Great open space and instructions are good explaining the different moves

Cons: limited street parking , no sign anywhere for Force Academy , but it is easy enough to find the address , but it’s a bit cryptic . The main room could be made a bit cooler and a bit more lighting ,

Regardless it’s a great fun family experience .
