Fighting with Lightsabers

Fighting with Lightsabers

As you know, I’m not a StarWars fan by any stretch of the imagination (or maybe I’m so much of a fan that I simply can’t accept what’s happened to the franchise), but I thought you might be interested in this. It’s a discussion of what’s wrong with the fight choreography in Lightsaber duels, and what could be done to fix it, from somebody who takes sword-fighting seriously. (His name is John Clements, and he says he’s a professional practicioner and researcher into Renaissance martial arts–which probably means Wendy’s heard of him.)
