For the last two months I’ve been going every Monday to what I call jedi class and we officially call the Golden Gate Knights. This is a lightsaber combat class that Alain and an equally energetic, uniquely nerdy friend named Novastar have put together and lead with enthusiasm and ass kicking warm-ups each week. I have learned to spin a lightsaber damn well if I say so myself; I can do forward and backward spins with each hand, and I can do them inverted. I can also do figure eight flourishes and I have an entire combat sequence memorized for the win. I know that I am a total world class nerd at this point, but you know what? I can kick your ass in battle.
