Light saber dueling an official sport - French fencing chiefs have recognized light saber dueling as an official sport. The French Fencing Federation is equipping fencing clubs with light sabers and training instructors. French organisers have produced competition rules intended to make light saber dueling both competitive and easy on the eye. As well as competitions, there will be contests in which combatants fight inside a circle. Strikes to the head or body are worth five points; to the arms or legs, three points; on hands, one point. The winner is the first to reach 15 points or whoever has the most points after three minutes.
