Over on another thread, we've established that the Klingon race of Star Trek fame have their own martial arts weapons, style and even got a book on the subject!

So I, in my infinite wisdom, have created a thread over here for the Star Wars fanatics out there with regard to THOSE martial arts and weapons!

The Klingon "Mok'bara" has been compared to Tai Chi as well as Koren ma's. Anyone have input on the origination of the Jedi arts?

Domo arigato... and may the force be with you!
The Jedi arts look very similar to some Japanese swords arts such as kendo and even a few aikido looking moves. I swear i saw someone doing "go no kumitachi" in episode 2...
