Unlike the Jedi, who systematically train multiple padawans in lightsaber combat at the Jedi Temple, the Sith are only two in number at any given moment: the master and the apprentice.
Dooku and Anakin were already trained in the art of the lightsaber by the Jedi before becoming apprentices to Darth Sidious. (Although Kylo Ren is not advertised as a "Sith", he is a Dark Force user who was initially trained in lightsaber combat by Luke Skywalker.)
If an apprentice is not a lapsed Jedi, does a Sith master expect him or her to be already trained in lightsaber combat? Will the master directly train the apprentice in the art of combat, if necessary?
Or is lightsaber mastery not mandatory for the Sith?
