Peter5158 02:43, 28 May 2007 (UTC) Hi everyone i know the opening stances of the forms but where can i learn spific moves?
  • If you mean an article start with lightsaber combat. If you mean books, check the Sources listed in that article. Someone else could probably tell you more if needed. -Fnlayson 02:47, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
  • No i mean moves in the forms.I've read that article before today and it was no help.
    • As far as I know, there aren't any books or anything that teach actual moves, but the Form I article has some pictures of the basic Form I attacks and parries see: File:Technique01.JPG, File:Technique02.JPG, and File:Technique03.JPG. Other than that, I don't know anywhere to learn actual moves. 00:21, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
      • It's quite simple to learn lightsaber combat in RL. You only need three or four things to do it. First, you'll need Force sensitivity as no non-Force sensitive has learned to wield a lightsaber expertly and with any finesse. Second, you'll need a lightsaber. Check on eBay and make you sure you get a real one. Test it by slicing through some steel. Third, you'll need to find a Jedi Master or Sith Lord or something like that. Those are a bit rare, but there are numerous job search websites out there to help you. Some of them spurn payment, so that's one less major expense. Fourth, you'll need years or at least months of discipline and training under that Master to make yourself proficient with the weapon. That's all you need.

As much as they have their appropriate place in canon, you can't learn them in real life because they're made up. There's fanon sites I'm sure that have what you want. It's not official and I try not to nauseate myself by looking at that kind of ilk, replete with bad spelling and worse ideas and all. Atarumaster88 15:05, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

  • I agree. Lightsaber forms aren't real and can't be learned. But it is possible to learn real-life sword fighting techniques. I myself have had an interest in sword fighting for a long time, I'm no expert, but I have a couple instructional DVDs that I've learned some techniques from, such as the "Sport Sword" program and the "Official Guide to Beginner's Kendo/Iaido". And there are alot of other instructional videos out there as well, but these two are the ones I have studied. I like to think I have at least a basic level of skill in real life sword fighting, but that's beside the point. The point is that even though lightsaber forms are fake, anyone can learn the basics of real sword fighting. Also, aside from instructional DVDs, there is a website, Sick Individual staged sword fighting tutorial that teaches the basics of staged sword fighting, but that's about staged sword fighting, not the real thing. Additionally, this site has an online manual that teaches some sword fighting techniques. 17:27, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
  • People are saying that characters use or don't use moves in a certain form so that makes them that kind of practioner or not. So I wanted to know where they saw those moves. Thats all.
    • Well, Nick Gillard invented the styles for the PT characters, tailoring them for each individual fighter, apparently by mixing and matching from a lot of different real life sword styles and athletic practices. However, I seem to recall a lightsaber fighting course being held somewhere. Was probably just fans trying to make cash of the brand name, but with so many lightsaber fan films out there I don't think it is a stretch to imagine someone getting fairly good at wielding props and holding classes in cool usage of them. Search the web. Or you could just learn real swordsmanship and be disappointed in how vastly different it is from the cool stuff we see in the movies. DarthMRN 22:33, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
      • That was surprisingly easy to find. [1] DarthMRN 22:38, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
