May The Force Be With You: Lightsaber Dueling Is Officially A Sport

For those that remember, this would be a proud day for Star Wars Kid. France just went full Alderaan (yes I'm going to make as many Star Wars referencing as I can) and officially made lightsaber dueling a real sport. Move over toe wrestling, there's a new way to test one's strength. Whether you're a fan of Rey or identify more with Darth Maul, you'll need get your TIE fighter ready because it's about to go down in France. There's official rules to fencing-like clash between the dark and light sides too and I'm in love with the fact that each wielder has to bring their lightsaber behind their back before striking a blow, keeping the theatrics involved. For a full list of rules and the lightsaber fights in general watch the video below.
