    Do you think Lightsaber combat martial arts are suitable for heavier people? Or is it an exclusive martial art catered towards lighter and smaller people, like, for example, Wing-Chun, is?

  2. Define "heavier". ;)
    It all depends on a muscle to fat ratio. While I'm in the process of shedding pounds, I'm able to do a lot of calisthenic excercises that a lot of slim folks cannot. I outlast a lot of average people in HEMA-sparring.
    But that's the result of constant training, building basic strength and mobility.
    It gets easier with less weight, though. ;)

    Even though a Lightsaber is a really light weapon, it still requires strength to wield. Fighting against an opponent requires additional strength and endurance. Train accordingly and it will work, just as simple.
