Ludosport Lightsaber Combat Academy

While we wait patiently for lightsabers to be invented and sold at Costco for $49.95, it can’t hurt to start training a little early. That’s the thinking going on in Italy right now, as the Ludosport Lightsaber Combat Academy is open for wannabe Jedis and Siths in Milan, Rome, Turin, Genoa, Varese, Pesaro and Vercelli.

The training focuses on the coordination, acrobatics, and fitness involved with dueling, as it incorporates elements of fencing and the modern Japanese martial art of Kendo. LSCA says all you need to join is a sweatsuit, sneakers, and protective gloves. Of course having The Force wouldn’t hurt either. As Obi Wan used to say — in Italian subtitles — as he was slipping one of his trademark adidas sweatsuits, “Può la forza sia con voi.” (May the force be with you.) Watch the video below.
