    Impressive if true, but that seems... unlikely.

    I tried to start a fencing club at grad school. Couldn’t get people to show up. Had a badass name, though. “Neca eos omnes. Deus suos agnoscet.”

    They've taught lightsaber classes at my wife's old fencing club for years. They also have regular Magic: The Gathering nights. Her current coach has very impressive board game and graphic novel collections. It is absolutely the sport for nerds and UMC misfits, at least in the US. Helps if you're tall, too.

    Side note: I saw a segment on the news tonight about something called "battle swords" where they dress up in police riot gear, hockey masks, and hockey gloves, and beat the shit out of each other with wooden swords. The goal is to break some "crystals" attached to the riot armor. Seems kind of like laser tag x fencing. Definitely not as elegant or civilized.

    FTFY.

    Talking about 'not civilized' I gotta link this, this is can't be really considered fencing though, but sort of fun to watch

    Rumor is Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm are going to officially start production on his Trilogy soon. Can’t wait for these and to start hearing details about what his trilogy will be about.

    So how long before we see lightsaber fighting as an Olympic sport? Bound to be more entertaining then curling or powerwalking.
