A Jedi should always be ready to face any challenge that comes their way in life, and being physically fit and able to move around quickly in your environment is so important. Jedi should do their best to maintain peak performance when it comes to being active. A Jedi should be able to run fast, jump high, roll on the floor to evade danger, and should have a good basic grounding in hand-to-hand combat. These are all activities that require high energy and daily practice. Each day, a Jedi should strive to build on the skills he or she has, which means you should strive to increase your running speed, increase the height of your jumps, increase the distance and height of your rolls, and increase the power and effectiveness of your hand-to-hand combat.
A Jedi should have a good level of physical fitness, as it serves as the basis and foundation of everything else that a Jedi does in life. All the basic physical skills complement each other. Skills such as jumping and rolling can benefit your lightsaber combat. Having the skill to run fast over long distances can allow you to track an enemy, or if necessary, to flee and escape from an enemy (or even an army) that is beyond your fighting capabilities. Your hand-to-hand combat skills can also be used during lightsaber combat, where you see a split-second opportunity to slip in a quick punch or kick to the opponent during close-quarter combat, when your lightsabers may be locked, or when you or the opponent is pinned against the floor or pinned against a wall. Hand-to-hand combat is a skill that can give you the edge even in lightsaber duels.
Basically, as a Jedi, you should always be ready and prepared for anything in life, because if you are not prepared, you could face serious injury, or even worse. Let this message be a reminder for you, and for myself also, to work on our basic physical skills each day, or at least a couple of days per week, so that we develop that inner confidence to be ready for anything in life, to protect ourselves, to protect the people we love, and to protect the innocent citizens of the galaxy.
May the Force be with you,
Jedi Master Zanetti
