A demonstration cannot get any more professional than this:

I cannot say how stoked I'd be to fight (and be trained by) the real Darth Maul!

Man he is good with that weapon!

Kudos to the guys who had the kohounas to step up and face-off with him as well. They were not at all untalented, but proved to be very trainable.

That would truly be a lifetime experience I'd so fondly remember!

Awesome! I just viewed the clip! He makes it look so easy yet if I tried, that saber would had been flung across the convention and into someone face.:hurt:

Pretty cool! I always knew Park was hitting his back with the saber in the movie though, he uses it like a bo staff but as a lightsaber it'd go right through his back that way. :D But still a nifty display.

MR should get Parks to do a few exhibition displays at some of the cons (or at least SW Celebration 4) against another stunt person using a Force FX, that'd be wild, you'd sell a lot of FXs right then and there I bet. :D

Even though it looked like the saber was going crazy fast in the first vid you could tell that he could've gone much much faster. His feet and the rest of his body were movin' slow but he must have lightening quick hands.

I'd have liked to see more of just him with the saber and not had them too uber geeks try and fight him. I'm sure it impressed all of there Magic the Gathering friends though.:rolleyes:

Forget that. Wouldn't that fall in the Theed reactor core have broken his back (when Qui-Gon back-slapped him)?

I always had the same thought as well.

And when first viewed, we thought it was JarJar in TPM that made the least amount of sense.
