The Ludosport Lightsaber Combat Academy – a chain of Italian combat schools – has begun teaching willing students lightsaber combat.

The classes teach some serious skills as well a full range of acrobatic moves – perfect for those who've dreamed of becoming a Jedi ... or for someone who just likes dancing around swinging a glowing toy stick.

Fire up that elegant weapon and be prepared to geek out way harder than you’d care to admit.

And, whatever you do, don’t make the lightsaber sound effect. It’ll make you look like an amateur.
