"It is obvious that this contest cannot be decided by our knowledge of the Force, but by our skills with a lightsaber."
Count Dooku, preparing to engage in a lightsaber duel with Yoda during the Battle of Geonosis[src]
Rey vs Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren and Rey engage in a lightsaber duel.

A lightsaber duel occurred when two or more combatants, at least one of whom was armed with a lightsaber, engaged in lightsaber combat. The Jedi and Sith were the archetypal duel combatants, though there were exceptions, such as the duel between the Sith Lord Darth Maul and the Death Watch leader Pre Vizsla for the rule of Mandalore.[1]

Examples of duels with combatants who did not use lightsabers included Finn's battle with FN-2199, who used his Z6 riot control baton to block the traitor's blows,[2] and Rey and Kylo Ren's battle with the Elite Praetorian Guard, where the Praetorians used various high-tech melee weapons such as vibro-voulges, electro-bisentos, Bilari electro-chain whips, and double bladed vibro-arbir blades to counter the lightsaber attacks.[3] Though lightsaber duels were rare during most of the time of the Galactic Republic, lightsaber dueling was nevertheless taught as part of Jedi training.[4]
