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.
