Jedi Knight Challenge

You will need: at least one (if not 2) toy light sabers, that make the sound and everything; an adult leader as the Sith (bad guy); a teen volunteer (to be the Jedi); another teen to use the second radio (the Force); 2 walkie talkies then, one with a ear piece; a blindfold; a soft helmet; and a broom handle for the adult leader (if there is no extra light saber).
The teen is to don the earpiece (with the volume up), the blindfold (around the ears too), and the helmet, in that order. Give the teen the light saber, and stand back. The adult (Sith) is to try to tap the teen (Jedi) with the broom handle/light saber as if it were a sword (keyword: gently). The Jedi teen has to listen to the “Force” (the other teen on the other end of the walkie talkies) while the rest of the group can shout out distractions. Practice radio commands as “block left,” “attack,” etc. Have the adult leader (Sith) attack slow enough for the “Force” teen to give commands. Go for about 5 minutes, then get new teen volunteers. Objective: to survive “attack” and listen to the Force using blocks, thrusts, and parries, etc. as commanded. Boys may get a little rough, tell them to calm down as necessary.
Done in conjunction with a discussion on the Holy Spirit, and appropiate Star Wars clips. Listening and trusting the Holy Spirit (a.k.a. the “Force”), etc. Great fun!
