You would be much better off just learning a proper martial art... The training is much tougher (better exercise), you lean proper balanced fighting techniques, you spar against people for real and they are practicle as a self defence.

People who want to use a lightsaber aren't doing it to learn self defence. They just want to look the part of a Jedi. Stage choreography achieves that look.

Considering anyone in the movies who used one,studied kendo and fencing to prep for the fights ,its rather idiotic ,to just not study classical  sword fighting ,and use a prop lightsaber instead of a samurai sword or epee .DDDUUUHHHHHH !

Miss me?

Oh wow.... that's just silly... I mean I get jedi'ism as a philosophy to live by (jedi code and all that), it's much like buddhism if I've figured it right.

If you wanna learn swordplay, then start kung fu/wushu, much of the lightsaber fights in the movies (new ones) looks a lot like jian- (straightsword) or dao- (broadsword) forms. More traditional schools even include internal practises such as qigong, taiji and meditation (which is as close as you'll get to "use the force Luke")

Now that I've lost you it kills me to say
I tried to hold on as you slowly slipped away.
I'm losing the fight.
I treated you so wrong now let me make it right.
