Does anyone know anything about the “Jedi Flow” technique? I found it on wookiepedia and it says:
From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.
Jedi Flow was a game taught to young Jedi Padawans. It helped hone their senses and familiarize them with the flow of the Force around them.
Behind the scenes: “Jedi Flow” was based on the “Body-Flow” technique developed by Scott Sonnon.
Appearances: The Cestus Deception

Is anyone familiar with any of these?April 8, 2009 at 7:51 pm #150844Jedi_PhoenixModerator
have you read the book? Maybe it mentions the technique in there. Just a thought, I will look into it myself, as I’ve wanted to read that book anyways. The thing I have to remember at least is that the books are rooted in fiction and thus, even some of the techiniques may not be wholly accurate or applicable to us as Jedi. Thos this one maybe, who knows?

I haven’t read that book, so no idea. I do however have an ebook version of it on my skydrive. If you’re interested in reading it, let me know which email you want an invite sent to, as those folders are invitation only. But then you can download the zip file with the clone wars books in it, and it is one of them (just checked for sure). Then you just need the microsoft ereader, which is free.April 9, 2009 at 6:36 am #150859shamus flamebladeParticipant
Body-Flow: Freedom from Fear-Reactivity by Scott Sonnon (I tweaked the link so it was the same as going through our referral link) -Jax
hope that helps
p.s. just remember if you buy it to do so through the academy storeApril 9, 2009 at 1:25 pm #150862JaxKeymaster
Awesome, thanks Shamus! I’m going to check it out later. Might need to add it to my library. heheApril 9, 2009 at 3:20 pm #150863JKBargerParticipant
Yes! Nice score Shamus! I’ll check it out and see if anything sticks…
Jax- yeah, I wouldn’t mind if you sent it to my firstname.lastname@example.org account. I would like to read what the technique is in real life but I would also like to see how it was used in the fictitious context.April 9, 2009 at 3:59 pm #150864JaxKeymaster
Chances are the author got it from this technique, so they’re probably similar. But we’ll see! I’ll send you the invite. It’ll have something about skydrive, microsoft, not really sure what in the title. It often hits spam folders so check there. You’ll have access to virtually everything on there, 15 gigs or so worth of music and books, so take what you wish.April 9, 2009 at 7:40 pm #150866Kol DrakeModeratorQuote:have you read the book?

BUT, many authors do tend to use real life examples in their writings when they wish to. Steven Perry in his series “The 97th Step” and “The Man Who Never Missed” used established marital arts in many ways. From hand-to-hand forms to sword smithing techniques ( “Black Steel” I believe).
AND.. if you ever get to read 97th and Man.. it’s worth it.April 9, 2009 at 9:49 pm #150868JaxKeymaster
I’ve looked for a torrent of any of Scott Sonnon’s writings and unfortunately haven’t found any. The ratings on Amazon are mixed, and the people who dislike this book (and some others) make some good points. Interesting either way!April 10, 2009 at 3:59 am #150875shamus flamebladeParticipant
I am familiar with the author of the cestus deception- Stephen Barnes. He is a fantastic martial artist and every book i have ever read by him quickly becomes a favorite so as far as i’m concerned if he included it it’s good enough to me. He even states that he based the jedi flow technique off of sonnen’s work as a tribute to him. If you google scott sonnen his story is pretty amazing in it’s own right. Just my 2 cents
