How many lightsabers do you have in your house, Star Wars fans? I’m willing to bet that there are several, going by the fact that they’re sold out at all my local stores. If that struck a chord, you’re going to love this video. The guys over at Kuma Films spent two days shooting this amazing footage of a Sith Lord and a Jedi doing some fancy lightsaber training out in the woods of Vancouver, BC Canada. The video was inspired by sword wielder David Barron and it’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s going to make you wish you took that fencing class in gym as a kid. Sure, these guys have better outfits, but think of how cool your high school friends would think you were now!
The video features Barron, also known as Mr. E according to the video credits, and Daniel Musashi (Flowarrior) using a series of lightsabers, single, double, and dual-ended in a series of flowing movements that are going to leave you open-mouthed. The force is strong with these guys. (Come on, there was no way to leave out that line.) There are a few over-the-shoulder moves in there that I’m pretty sure would kill you if lightsabers were real. What? Lightsabers could totally be real. I mean, science might not agree with me, but–just let me live in my fantasy world, okay? It’s nice in here.
Check out the video below and tweet me/us @JennaBusch/@Nerdist with your oohs and aahs. Seriously, it’s absolutely stunning and music is going to put you in a trance. Also, if anyone knows where to get that super fancy Sith robe, let me know. I feel like it would fit pretty much every formal occasion. Why do the bad guys always have better outfits?
