How can Jedi learn to use tutaminis without hurting themselves?

Blasters have stun settings, and the Jedi use training droids and training lightsabers which have limited power. Presumably Jedi practice tutaminis with these before attempting to block blaster bolts ...

How close did she come to attaining the rank? Very. In The Clone Wars episode, The Wrong Jedi, she was offered the rank but turned it down. The Council considered her ordeal in hindsight as being her ...

Did the Jedi Order use corporal punishment?

Based on the prequels, it seems extremely unlikely. Corporal punishment gives individuals a motivation that is ultimately based on fear, and as Yoda says: "Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. ...

Lightsaber Fighting Styles

Why was Yoda reluctant to train Anakin when he ended up training an older Luke later on?

I think that yes, Yoda felt that Anakin was too old. Not only that, but also, he felt that Anakin might not be fully suited for the life of a Jedi, partly because of his emotional connection to his ...

Why was Yoda reluctant to train Anakin when he ended up training an older Luke later on?

Why didn't Obi-Wan take another apprentice during the Clone Wars? (after Anakin became a Knight)

The very short answer is that it was because it wasn't the will of the Jedi Council. At the start of the Clone Wars film, we learn that Kenobi did indeed discuss (with Yoda) the possibility of getting ...

Why didn't Obi-Wan take another apprentice during the Clone Wars? (after Anakin became a Knight)

Obi-Wan is on the Jedi Council, and thus no longer has an apprentice. We don't see any other member of the Council (Yoda, Windu, Ki-Adi-Mundi, etc.) with Padawans. They may teach Younglings in a class ...

Why didn't Yoda & Obi-Wan stay around to help rebuild the Jedi Order?
