Learn the ways of lightsaber dueling with The Saber Authority

These stars will teach you to wield the Jedis' weapon of choice like a true master

The Force is strong with The Saber Authority. The Singapore-based group, which conducts lessons in lightsaber dueling, teaches you to do far more than simply wave a stick around while making appropriate swooshing noises.

The dueling technique taught by the group is based on PTKGO, a Filipino fighting style that focuses on footwork for effective slashing, defending and realistic strikes.

We caught up with the saber coach Reza to learn more about the techniques. And judging from the collective sweat of the trainees (or should that be Padawan learners?), it ain't easy being a Jedi.
