Nerd Alert! Lightsaber School Opening In San Fransisco!
LudoSport International has been teaching people how to fight with "light sabers" for several years already, but not in the US - until now. A new school in opening in San Franscisco:
The school teaches the seven forms of lightsaber combat, including Shii-cho, Makashi, Soresu, Ataru, Djem-so, Niman and Vaapad. The classes follow rules similar to those in fencing and martial arts, and assign specific uniform colors for students' lightsaber skill levels, as with karate belt colors.
The CNET article does not say if LudoSport has some kind of agreement with Lucasfilm or Disney to talk about lightsabers and so on, one would assume they do otherwise I would expect them to have the ever-loving crap sued out of them...
