The diminutive human Jedi Master, Luke Skywalker looks about the room at the various remotes hissing and swishing about him, there is a count of twelve total, each a pale matte grey, with several openings each ready to send a lance of energy towards the direction of the reptilian figure. Luke raises his brilliant green lightsaber, in a totally defensive stance he begins to sidestep, waiting for the onslaught of low-powered lances to begin. His eyes become lidden as he begins to relax and allow himself to fall into the flow of the force. He briefly senses a collection of energy in a remote that is at his back, for which he quickly relocates his lightsaber to defend against. And so it began...

Once the first remote had fired, the others began as well, each adding their own staccato burst of to the air, which Luke does not see, but feels rather, sensing the energy as it wells up before it lances out towards him, only to meet the scintillating blade of energy Luke wields. Luke begins to slowly revolve as he encounters each blast of energy with his lightsaber. The human's breath quickens with the rate of fire, but rather than grow stressed with the relentless barrage of fire provided by the remotes, Luke allows himself to slip deeper into concentration.

The more he concentrates, the more things seem to slow. Rather than making quick, erratic movements, the remotes take on an almost lazy movement through the air, seemingly affixing themselves to a pattern which becomes more and more readable as the exercise continues. Luke's motions are hardly led by his own thoughts anymore, rather his appendages seem to move themselves. Also, rather than blocking and deflecting every shot, Luke's motions and instincts take him out of the way of fire all together, weaving, ducking, jumping over shots, that, a moment later, would have connected with Luke's black jumpsuit.

Those shots that he does block with the lightsaber are blocked by fluid sweeping motions, instead of the short quick motions that take much energy to reverse. From an outsiders point of view, the exercise would appear almost beautiful. Between the graceful, fluid motions of the humanoid figure, the brilliant green blade and the yellow lances of energy striking towards the former two, the art like struggle seems flawless with each bolt of yellow energy being avoided or accounted for.
