Lightsaber Dueling Now A Competitive Sport In France

It was always fun to watch the Jedi and Sith do battle on screen with their lightsabers. You probably even had your own mini lightsaber duel with friends.

Well, now the French Fencing Association is recognizing lightsaber duels as an actual competitive sport.

The Verge reports:

The federation has made the move in an attempt to make the sport more appealing to a younger generation, and it has designed its rules to make sporting matches every bit as visually appealing as their big-screen counterparts.

May the force be with you.
