A group of San Francisco Star Wars fans have created a combat choreography class for Jedis-in-training with their weapon of choice - the lightsabre.

At a recent class, Alain Bloch, the self-proclaimed Jedi Master at Golden Gate Knights, demonstrated a slicing technique.

Donning a Luke Skywalker outfit and a green lightsabre, Mr Bloch, who has a background in martial arts and stage combat, said: "Always be mindful of the presence!"

I already lost an arm to a lightsabre, I really don't think this is a good idea...

I love that the best picture this website could find is a bunch of squirrels fighting with light sabers, that should really help with selling he validity of this class!

Well I didn't like him...   ;)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Pehaps, but that little one wasn't worth the effort.

First lesson:
It's just like sword fighting, except you have to make 'vroom' 'foosh' 'pzzkt' sound effects.

In hindsight I think you are right...

Well, being a bit of a Star Wars nerd, I've got a couple of MR (Master Replica) Lightsabers, and these make the vroom, foosh, pzzkt sounds already built in (the blade and handle sense movement and resistance).  And being an ultra-uber Star Wars nerd, I've got a couple more MR Lightsabers that have been modified to use a tube of optic-fibers to light the blade rather than the normal LED lights found in the blade of the normal MR, which means I can (and have) been involved in several full-contact saber duels with full light and sound-effects (one time at a sci-fi convention, with too much energy and alcohol at the end of the day I got a poke in the eye and was dubbed the nickname "Patch" for having to wear an eye-patch, and since we weren't exactly medics at the hotel I was staying at, I used someone else's cosplay costume, and it had a skull-and-crossbones covering it).

:ph34r:

So yeah, sign me up for this class, it'd be fun :w00t:
