WELCOME INITIATES You are about to take your first step toward becoming a Padawan Learner and understanding the Force. These are troubled times and we need you. Learn the ways of the Jedi and fulfill your destiny during this week of Jedi Training.

TRAINING

THE CODE Every Jedi is familiar with the Jedi Code. Learning it begins your training.
LIGHTSABERS Before we can start your training we will need to make training sabers. Initiates are required to create their own sabers because it is such a personal piece of equipment.
SABER TRAINING What good is a light saber if you don’t know how to use it? During this instructional workshop you’ll learn to attack and defend using your training saber.
EVASIVE MOVEMENT Movement is important, whether you’re defending yourself, being stealth or chasing down a bounty hunter. In this workshop you’ll learn how to move efficiently.
REASONING Jedi must be logical and use reasoning when they are investigating someone or while in battle. We’ll sharpen those skills by using mind-challenging games that focus on spatial reasoning and strategy.
THE FORCE Learning to use The Force is at the center of a Jedi’s existence. Through games and activities, we’ll hone your skills and teach you to use your skills to your advantage.
