Star Wars Force Awakens At Lightsaber University In Singapore

Education is at times in the eye of the beholder. Some sign up to extra courses to enhance their IT skills others train to get better at wielding a lightsaber.

If you happen to fall in the latter category, The Saber Authority in Singapore can help.

The academy, yes it is a real instition, say their fighting styles are based on martial arts, equipping even the most amateur saber-holding individual with "striking combinations and footwork patterns," that will help you defend yourself against.

Never do we need to fear the Dark Side again.

Monthly membership $80 (SGD) (£37) with lightsabers provided. If you bring your own, it is cheaper.

Training sessions take place every Sunday evening in an area they call The Deck.

If you can't be bothered to fly all the way to Singapore to celebrate Force Friday, a similar organisation exists in the UK.

The LudoSport Academy in Bristol offers a similar training program, mixing martial art-style combat with the flamboyance of Star Wars.

May the Force be with you.
