Imagine the light saber duels!

"It's no secret that Lucas was inspired by Akiro Kurosawa's films when he constructed his Star Wars universe, so perhaps it shouldn't be too surprising to learn that he originally tried to recruit one of the director's biggest alums to appear in his original installment to the franchise."

"Toshiro Mifune, who'd appeared in several of Kurosawa's prized movies, was offered not one but two roles in the Star Wars series: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader. He turned them down, his daughter revealed to The Hollywood Reporter, because "he was concerned about how the film would look and that it would cheapen the image of samurai, on which George Lucas had based a lot of the character and fighting style … At the time, sci-fi movies still looked quite cheap as the effects were not advanced and he had a lot of samurai pride." The role of Obi-Wan eventually went to Alec Guinness, and Darth Vader was notoriously voiced by James Earl Jones, while David Prowse embodied the physical aspects of the role in the original films."

Excellent article. Good advice for aikido classes, seminars, and martial arts practice in general. A few particularly poignant quotes:

"(A) GOOD TRAINING PARTNER provides an honest ukemi (receiving the throw or a pin), with their energy dedicated to the moment of the interaction, and appropriate level of challenge. He or she is focused on their own practice, while adequately responding to their partner’s movement. The honesty of the ukemi is both physical and mental. Good training partner is focused on the movement and staying relaxed and connected to the person they’re working with. Their goal is to work on improving their own practice."

"Seminars can be especially difficult, since you might not know your partner, and people can assume...that they have more experience. Some people don’t hesitate teaching anyone, beginner or instructor alike."

"To decide to teach another student on the mat one probably needs to think “I know it”, my partner needs my “help”, and “my teaching is welcome”...As far as deciding that another student needs help, assuming responsibility for one’s partner’s learning could be disempowering and patronizing."
