    (Taken from the game instruction manual)
    
    --Welcome to the Jedi Academy--
    
    Welcome, apprentice. I am Luke Skywalker, and it is my pleasure to inform
    you that you have been chosen to undergo training in the ways of the Jedi
    at the academy on Yavin 4. You are about to embark on a long and sometimes
    perilous journey, one in which you will learn more about yourself than you
    can possibly imagine. Here, we will train you in the ways of the Force. You
    will learn to defend yourself with a lightsaber. You will also study
    diplomacy, history and more.
    
    Should you complete the training, you will represent the Jedi Order as a
    guardian of peace and justice throughout the galaxy. The path before you
    is arduous, and not all will be able to complete the trials that lie ahead.
    Know also that the path to the dark side is ever present, and the 
    temptations are many. Be mindful of your task at hand, and let the light
    guide you in all your decisions. Those who are successful will enter a 
    brand new world within themselves. May the Force be with you.
    -----
    
    Well anyways, the single goal of this guide is to simply get you to better 
    know what moves that you are capable of using with your lightsaber and to
    help you actually know how to use them efficiently so as to help you later
    on if you want to become a good saberist in this game. Since I have 
    rewritten most of the guide, I hope it will be easier if you decide that you
    just want to look up a single move, hence I removed the symbol system.

    (BMA) 3 -> BASIC MOVES (ACROBATS)
    
    These moves are the ones that you can accomplish with any lightsaber style,
    they are the default moves and everyone should at least know these ones if
    they want to survive. If you want to find a specific move, such as jump.
    Then open the find word window (usually Ctrl+F) and type in JUMP in all
    caps. If you don't write it in caps you may not find what you are looking
    for since all the move names have been fully capitalized.

    (MMO) 8 -> MISC. MOVES
    
    The moves listed here are classified as "Other Moves", meaning that they
    will most likely not be used for normal 1v1 lightsaber combat.
    All contributions for this part will be pasted in their original form.
    
    [] JUMPING OFF THE AIR []
    
    I'll explain it as if your useing a single saber though you may be able 
    to do it with duel sabers or the staff.
    
    This has to be done in a fast style: fast, or medium it definately works 
    with fast style not too sure about medium.
    
    Run along a wall, while on the wall attack twice with your lightsaber before 
    you descend back down the wall... you will jump sharply off "nothing" 
    right up  beside the wall you can get more height of this as well.
    
    Also you can do this move from a side flip off a wall, just attack twice, 
    you will know when you have done this.
    
    What happens is when you side flip off the wall you are spinning one way, 
    as you execute the 2nd attack you will jump off nothing and spin in the 
    other way.
    
    Anyway I thought you might wanna know this. The saber style must be able 
    to execute two attack quick enough before you descend to the ground. 
    I think medium style works with the side flipo but not the wall run... 
    anyway, enjoy!

    Well, I guess that basically wraps up the lightsaber move guide, remember,
    if you have any contributions or want to point out some problems, then
    email me at the address I have supplied above. If you want, you can send
    me chocolates, money or new games as a sign of praise, but preferably 
    the money. I will not accept emails that are rude and/or don't have proper 
    grammar. I will also not answer anything that has already been covered in 
    this guide, and emails over 20 kb with any attachments will not be cared for. 
    Final thanks go to Zhao Yun for contributing the Dual Lightsaber Butterfly and
    to Luke for contributing the Jump Off Air move.
