After about 3 months of dueling I see a rather big problem: hitting the hands. No, this is not about gloves or protection of the fingers, this is about the simple fact, that one cannot really do anything about those grazing hits on the fingers and back of the hand. With a sword, the crossguard protects me from most of those hits, with a stick, they are not really a problem (stings but doesn't really harm). But now consider the nature of a Lightsaber - there would be burnt fingers or fingers flying all around. So, how do you handle this? For now I've decided to simply ignore those grazes and go with the canonic explanation of a 'Force-field' around the hands and handle. It's a bit unsatisfying from a martial artists PoV, but if the exchange stops because of those grazes, there's almost no good exchange left.
