    I don't mean the forum but the general sport of it? I have only just heard of it recently but there seems to be a lot of information and sites for it online. I don't know if this is still new or what. I am glad I discovered it though. I am hoping to get into it in the next few weeks. I have to find somewhere to get training and buy a saber.

    I don't know exactly but if I had to take a guess, I would say since the 90's but just not in the US as much as it is now. Japan and places that dive head first into pop culture usually have things like this become popular long before we have it.

    I am not sure there will be a true or solid answer to this until there is an established sport title for it. Like different categories of Martial Arts and the like.

    I think this is the case with a lot of things like this as well. I mean things like this surely had to have started around the time the movies started coming out in the last 70's I would imagine.

    I'd bet before this. As mentioned Star Wars has been around since the 70's... You mean to tell me it took people 12+ years to think of this!? Pfff haha

    I am not sure. I tried to find some information on when it got started and can't. I guess cause it is not a registered or recognized "sport" maybe?

    Same here. I can't find anything unless it is under a specific name. I am still too much of a noob to know any better LOL

    The way I look at it is, it has been around for as long as I have been into it lol
    If I never heard of it before, it is new to me! I know this isn't helpful but as mentioned, I don't think we will be able to find one true answer.

    Ahh okay thanks everyone. I thought maybe I was missing it somewhere. I googled everything I could think of and I have not found any established date or year when it started.

    Well I don't know! I am not historian expert on these things! :confused:
    Just saying that was my guess. I mean I am sure there were people doing this since the first movie but not in clubs/classes or anything.
