"A lightsaber—any weapon—only achieves worth in how it is wielded—in the effort, the struggle of one who holds it."

These were the words of the ancient master Traya. Though she fell, with such reckless ideologies too, her insight into the Force and the nature of her fall is nothing to shy from. She serves as a lesson for all of us. Her teachings and words shall be scattered among my own.

In my many years as a Master of the Jedi Order, I have explored the foundations and intricacies of the lightsaber. Having decided to specialise in the art of the blade, I have carefully analysed every fighting style in the Archives, and have developed a comprehensive list of everything I have learnt.

As such, this holocron (likely to be updated into a readable digital format knowing Jocasta) is meant for educational purposes, to instruct generations of Jedi with insights I have made as with each lightsaber form.

Master Windu's comments on different lightsaber forms can be found below. I have formatted them in a way to allow readers to select whichever they desire to read (and added images of the Masters that you initiates adore and will likely want to emulate); though a true Jedi should take the time to read them all. This is one of the last few things we have of Mace after all... - Jocasta
