If you showed up for a fair fight, you're doing it wrong.

I love training duels, always looking for partners to practice with weapons and armour for safety

  2. Why this choice?


well, considering my wide array of martial arts training, weapons training, improvised weapons training, and military training i don't really need to bring anything more than a clear mind and my body....

a duel would mean that verbal communication/negotiation has failed and it is time for "aggressive negotiation"

A lightsaber. I'm thinking green. I've always like the green blades the best. A saber staff would be fun, but I think in the end a more traditional single blade saber is what I'd have.


I like green too, direct complement to red. would you use standard lightsabre?

I wouldn't duel. Unfortunate encounter, avoid the encounter or run away.

I'm no sure what you are asking or looking for?


looking for people that have specific scenario in mind whether be it current life, desired life, or even various Star Wars life lol

OK Then I'm OK with my statement. I have avoided duels and unfortunate situations.. I typically let the antagonist go about the pitiful little life's. They are the seed to their own destruction. It's just a matter of time .

The exacts of the "encounter" are a little undefined, but when I think of an "unfortunate situation" it generally involves the safety of my kith and kin. If their safety is on the line, I absolutely want an unfair fight with the odds as much in my favor as possible. The well being of my friends, wife, and daughters is no game and I want to be able to see them at the end of whatever an "unfortunate situation" might be.

Now, in the event of a training duel, I'd rather the odds be even, or even a little in the other person's favor. You can't get any better unless the training is challenging you. I live in Michigan if anyone wants to get together for some training.

And for the fun of it, if I was in a Star Wars duel, I'd go with a heavy blaster, thermal detonators, and a good vibro-knife. Lightsabers are really cool, but I'd feel more comfortable with blasters and grenades. lol
