On today's episode the Adjudicator and Librarian engage in a lightsaber battle; then we discuss the ancient art of Kendo, and the training weapons used (Bokken, Shinai). Then we discuss the new wanna-be Jedi sport, full-contact lightsaber sparring! The Librarian shows off a couple of his full-contact battle lightsabers. And we engage in one last battle royale!
If you're interested in getting your own practice weapon or learn about Kendo, we've included a couple of helpful links.
A Special Thanks to Star Wars sound designer, Ben Burtt. You made a tension cable sound like a blaster, a scuba regulator into a Dark Lord, and a broken microphone cable into an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.
