Real Lightsabre Fights – level 2

22-02-2019 15:00

Until now, you could only see lightsabre duels in the Star Wars films, but thanks to the French Fencing Federation, the activity became an official sport in the country.

The fighters use fake lightsabres which cannot hurt anyone. The cheap ones only glow, but the more expensive versions have sound and light effects.

The rules of lightsabre fencing are easy – a hit to the head is five points, a hit to the arms and legs is three, and a hit to the hands is one point. The winner is the person who reaches fifteen points first.

Difficult words: lightsabre (a type of sabre/a sword in the sci-fi films Star Wars), fencing (a type of sport when people fight with swords), glow (give out light).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
