    Is swimming any good to keep you in shape for lightsaber combat martial arts? I know swimming is good in general to keep you in shape, but what about in regards to lightsaber combat?

    I am sure any kind of general movement helps but you would actually want to focus more on stuff that trains flexibility and reaction time.
    Swimming does doe much of that. It does strengthen you but nothing like what you would need to saber battles.

    Swimming will be healthy and good to do in general but I am not sure how well it will help enhance your skills.

    Yeah like swimming is good for minor things but you would be better off doing something that aids in balance and resilience.

    I love swimming and do it all the time in the warmer months of the year but I can't see it helping my skills at all. I guess it depends on what you actually do in the pool. I just have fun :p

    I have a pool and only been able to use it once this year :(

    I am not sure how swimming would help with saber dueling but I guess if you actually SWIM like the Olympic trainers do, it can.
