Local martial arts studio offers Jedi Academy classes

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Whether you're a Jedi or a Sith, you're invited to learn more about the art of the lightsaber.

The Jedi Academy at Bluegrass Martial Arts on Plantside Drive gave students the chance to learn ten different styles of lightsaber combat Saturday.

The class is BYOL -- that's Bring Your Own Lightsaber.

Some even came in costume.

The owner of Bluegrass Martial Arts says he was approached about teaching this class.

"They said you're the right guy to do it. You're the one that knows all the weapons and sword stuff anyway. This would be the perfect location to do something like this. And so I was told three separate times to do it and make it happen. And the third time was a charm. I went ahead and made it happen," Samuel Conver said.

If you missed the class Saturday, it will be offered three times a week.
