    Jedi Academy in Chile' Teaches Children Martial Arts!

    Fear the force, you fuckers...this has taken **** to a whole new level. Combining what it considers the values of the Jedi -- wisdom and nobility -- with Yoga and Tae Kwon Do, the school believes it is providing its children something valuable along with the fun and entertainment of living a dream.



    "But not everyone is happy about the way of the Jedi being taught to precocious youngsters. "You guys are completely and utterly stupid," a commentor named Sebastián wrote on the school's website. "What are you thinking, making a school for Jedis? Do you have something wrong with your heads?"

    I don't give a damn what you people think. I'm on the next plane to Quilpué, you hatin' bastards!

    They didn't have any photos of the actual Jedi Academy in the slideshow?! WTF. Very shoddy reporting Fox News Latino.

    I guess that of any place on Earth that has a similar climate to Yavin IV, it'd be Chile.

    Retarded, they are. Earned scorn, they have. Teach them well, they may well not.

    Aside from the fact that the Jedi are largely modeled on Buddhists and Taoists, I think it's a cute idea for kids.

    Blaming parents for kids loving Star Wars, you can not.

    Kids love Star Wars, always been that way, it has.

    I think it's great. They don't seem to claim that the kids will learn any mystical stuff. They teach Tae Kwon Do, yoga, and elementary school curriculum. If this is properly managed I'd think it's great for the little padawans.

    This makes me slightly less ashamed of being a Trekkie.

    I wonder what the pay is like for an instructor?
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    A high midiclorian count and the knowlege that the universe is a safer place should technically be thanks enough for a Jedi.
