If you’ve ever found yourself wishing to pay homage to Star Wars during your workout, you’re not alone.

Every Thursday evening in Manhattan, Daniel Resier, a special education teacher, leads a lightsaber training class where padawans learn and execute moves similar the the movie characters’.

“Where’s the fun of just simply watching something?” Reiser told CNN. "You look at, say, a football fan. A lot of them are never going to be an NFL player, but they're going to go in the back yard and throw that football around. It's the same thing, but instead of footballs we have lightsabers. It's a way of becoming something that we truly love."
