    I know someone online but no where near me (he lives overseas). None of my friends care to do it, they view it as "strange" or they just aren't into Star Wars like I am. Does it help to know someone locally who does lightsaber combat?

    Yes it does. I remember when I first started out, I was by myself swing around in my backyard.
    My neighbor came out and goes "Training to take over the death star?". When I found someone else willing to work with me, it helped a lot. You don't learn much by yourself.

    I think it does. I never have done this myself, just recently found out about it and most people I see doing it or discussing it have a group of friends they do it with.

    Sure does but it isn't necessary to enjoy it. Get connected online with some Star Wars fans in your area, you'd be surprised by the number of people willing to try it out. Even non-fans are having a go.

    How much do you think I can actually learn by myself though?

    Thanks yeah I was worried I wouldn't be able to find someone. Like I don't mind meeting new people but I don't want to make friends with the wrong people or something.

    I mean this is like saying you can learn how to drive without a car but how could do you expect you'll be at it once you actually get in a car. You will know how to start it, but beyond that it is going to be a rough start.

    Ah yeah that is true. I mean I can learn from it but it wouldn't get me the hands on experience. I always said I learn better doing the hands on approach too.
