A new club in Aiken wants the force to be with you.
Tony Negron, one of the founders of the Aiken Lightsaber Club, explains: “The Aiken Lightsaber Club is a place for young people who don’t have a chance to participate in other kinds of sports or other kinds of activities.”
Clifford “Trey” Jones III, also a found of the Aiken Lightsaber Club, adds: “They’re not doing Star Wars moves. It’s controlled action. It’s controlled emotion. We wanted to reach kids that aren’t necessarily gonna go out for every sport, aren’t necessarily gonna go outside very much, but if you put a lightsaber in their hand, they become motivated.”
