This lightsaber combat academy will teach you how to be a Jedi
Ever wanted to be a Jedi? Or a Sith? Well you need to get yourself down to a lightsaber combat academy, then
In 2006, in a Galaxy far far away (read: Milan, Italy) Ludo Sport was founded. The one-of-a-kind brainchild of three Italian friends.
The martial art-based, lightsaber sport sees competitors battle it out in real-life Star Wars fights.
The academies – found in Italy, Ireland, Russia, Belgium, Sweden and even Cheltenham, UK – teach pupils how to engage in battles, using lightsaber reproductions.
For those keen to start participating, there are tournaments and even summer boot camps scheduled.
Now watch the video of the incredible sport’s founders – Simone Spreafico, Gianluca Longo and Fabio Monticelli- talking all about it and get an insight of what its like to pretend that you are Luke Skywalker
