Its pretty easy to do and you can get some wicked velocity from the blade when you are bringing it back around.  Have fun with it!

For this move in particular it's critical to have a correct blade length.
The MR are 32 inches out of the Hilt which is long enough.
(MR Lightsabers are Longer than most Samurai including Hilt)

The Longer 40 inch EL bladed sabers of Parks Sabers will want to get a shorter Blade...
unless your over 6ft 5inches then I guess It might not be an issue :D

^It's hard enough using an FX saber at 5'3.  :D


Good to see you back, Yoda. :)

If you ever Convert one of your Sabers that you'd use for dueling or practicing  then you could get shorter blades.
thecustomsabershop.com has everything from custom sized blades to Luxeon LED conversions.
Also ultrasabers.com does the Luxeon LED conversions as well.

The MR Blades extend 32 inches from the hilt.
If you got one that was 28 inches you'd be better off and it won't look to short ;)

In fact you could cut down the stock blade but I feel it's better to leave this as the "show blade"
and buy a seperate duelling blade at the size you want 8)

These videos look so good.  I've been able to do the stunts in most of these videos thanks to the great instruction.
