Lightsaber Combat Book Teaches How To Be a Real Life Jedi
Summary: ‘Lightsaber Combat for Beginners Book: The Unofficial Guide to Dueling Like a Jedi’ is the first book that provides step-by-step instruction on how to perform lightsaber combat choreography.
Austin, Texas – 12/29/2015 – Author Carey Martell’s book ‘Lightsaber Combat for Beginners Book: The Unofficial Guide to Dueling Like a Jedi’ is the first genuine guidebook on how to use a lightsaber.
In his book Carey describes the step by step methods using over 170 detailed illustrations that show ten guards and eight different striking techniques. The book also has 10 drills that can be organized into custom choreography.
When writing his book, Carey based his saber system on the historical sword fighting techniques featured in ‘The Flower of Battle’, a 14th century manuscript written by the famous duelist Fiore dei Liberi.
“Lightsaber sparring is becoming popular at fitness clubs because of the new movie,” says Carey Martell. “But not everyone lives in a town that has classes they can attend. Worse there is no official codification of the lightsaber moves used in the films so people often struggle to build a functional martial art system around lightsaber dueling. I wrote this book because I wanted to help anyone who wants to learn do so, and hopefully create their own lightsaber sparring club. I think lightsaber sparring could become a new sport.”
The book retails in the Kindle .mobi format at $9.99 and paperback at $19.99
