Mar 21 2011Jedi Martial Arts School Opens In Chile
Hey you -- girl on the right. Less rainbow scarf, more lightsaber.
Because there's nothing a little Force can't teach, a school is opening in Chile to learn children the way of the Jedi, alongside some Taekwondo and yoga for good measure. *searching for online enrollment* DAMN YOU, 12-YEAR OLD AGE LIMIT!
The pint-sized Padawans can now attend an actual Jedi Temple in Quilpué where they'll learn martial arts and make their geeky parents totally envious of their training.
Children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old can learn yoga and Taekwondo, combined with the teachings of Jedi values like wisdom and nobility. The lucky apprentices even get their own lightsabers, because the school's creator, William Berrueta, believes in crafting a fully immersive environment that is educational and entertaining.
Dammit, where was the 'beat other kids in the head with a plastic lightsaber' school when I was growing up? I don't even think we had replica lightsabers back then, just pointy sticks. One time I did Force-choke a kid on the playground though. Just kidding. I tied him to the swingset with a jump rope and threw black walnuts at his head.

Thanks to Clay and aaron, who turned to the Dark Side and started lightsabering the teacher in the neck during a breathing exercise.
