Learning to wield a light sabre

21 March 2013

As the Scottish debate whether or not changes to the law might allow Jedis to perform legal marriage ceremonies, in San Francisco a group of Star Wars fans are offering training in Light Sabre warfare.

Alain Block, the instructor at the Golden Gate Knights, said: “It’s like an initiation. When a person gets their light sabre, suddenly you’re part of this other group of people that are a little more in touch with the secrets of the universe, I don’t know.”

Julio Reyes, a student in the class, said: “At first they giggle, because they think it’s a little silly. Then they’re like, actually that’s kind of cool. Then they start asking more questions.”

And if it all gets too much, the same organisation also offers meditation – to release the dark side, of course.
