The Master Swordsman is an organization made up of the twenty best Jedi Swordsman (lightsaber duelists).
Description and HistoryEdit
The Master Swordsman was formed so that extremely talented lightsaber duelists could get together to train, govern, and develop new lightsaber combat styles and forms. It was founded by Grandmaster Yoda, Grandmaster Luke Skywalker, Jedi Master Mace Windu, and Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. This organization is also formed to help teach and train other Jedi in the art of Lightsaber combat. It always contains 20 members. The Presidency is as follows: Yoda, president. Luke Skywalker, vice president. Mace Windu, secretary. Obi- Wan Kenobi, treasurer. Anakin Skywalker, presidency assistant. Saba Sebatyne is the unofficial 2nd Assistant. All the original members are still members. Kyp Durron was formerly a member of the Maste Swordsman, but was recently removed and put in the Skilled Swordsman. Cin Drallig, former president of the Skilled Swordsman, replaced him.
This Organization also has "Masters" for each lightsaber form, plus Jar'Kai. Though normally the Masters are not members of the presidency, Mace Windu was made Master of Vaapad. Kit Fisto was formerly only Practicioner of Niman, but now that he is more proficient in the style of combat, is the Master of Niman.
Another organization, the Skilled Swordsman , was made afterwards to recognize the next 20 most talented Jedi. The president of the Skilled Swordsman is promoted to the Master Swordsman when there is an open spot on the Master Swordsman.
The Master Swordsman should have been called the "Master Swordsmen", but since it has already been called the Master Swordsman everywhere, they decided to keep the name how it is. The Skilled Swordsman is the same way.
