training is the heart and soul of Jedihood.
Forget using the Force. The Force is cool,
but what's a couch potato who can use the
Force? A woman who never has to get up to
find the remote. NOT a Jedi. Don't get me
wrong, using the Force is important (a
fighter who can't use the Force is, well, a
fighter), but it's not the first thing
someone would notice. The first thing someone
notices is how good the Jedi looks in her big
brown bathrobe. The second thing, provided
the Jedi is doing her stuff when they meet,
is how well the Jedi kicks ass. For both of
these things, the would-be Jedi must
undertake serious physical training.
training is composed of three parts:
and endurance-building exercise
arts, with and without weapons
By strength training, I don't
mean hefting a three-pound weight sixty times. What are you
planning to be, a Jedi supermarket stocker?
