Greetings each

I would think most of these techniques are taken from Iaido, Kendo and Ken Jitsu as the light saber bears many similarities to the Katana .

Yours in the spirit of Budo

Here is a link to a good article on the fictitious forms, and yes many come from real work techniques, some are just crazy for show items as well such as the "telekenetic lightsaber combat" form :-)

Personally, I prefer the book of the five rings and its teaching for practical use, but some of the info is pretty interesting nonetheless
