In The Force Awakens Maz Kanata says

I am no Jedi, but I know the Force.

Are there any other groups who have learned to use the Force, or is every non Jedi/Sith force sensitive completely untrained?

Between canon and Legends, there are plenty of Force user organizations. Here's a list:


From current Disney canon, the Dathomir Nightsisters or witches were featured in the Clone Wars cartoon series, which is considered current official canon.

  • What about the Church of the Force they introduced in the new movie, The Force Awakens? You also did not mention the Knights of Ren or Snoke. Feb 5, 2016 at 4:56
  • According to Wookiepedia, the Church of the Force are pro-Jedi worshippers of the Force. It's like the Jedi are Gautama Buddha and a minority of Buddhists, who see it as a spiritual philosophy, and the Church of the Force are the majority of Buddhists who see Buddhism as a religion made up of humans who achieved godhood. The Church are virtually all non-Force-sensitive, but they support and worship the Jedi. They existed since the days of the Old Republic. Feb 5, 2016 at 7:10


There are the Knights of Ren.

The Knights of Ren was a dark side organization that operated under the command of Snoke, the Supreme Leader of the First Order. Kylo Ren was a member of the organization.


The Knights of Ren operated in the decades following the Galactic Civil War. They were under the command of Supreme Leader Snoke, who used them as a tool of the dark side of the Force alongside the First Order.
