The Lightsaber Practice of Obi Wan Kenobi

LUKE. Having long and greatly desired (my deare friend Obi Wan) to learne this noble science, and especially of you, who did put the first Lightsaber into my hands: wherefore (seeing so good opportunitie is so fitly presented, being ensnared on this Millenium Falcon with little else for diversion) I could wishe that we might spend this time at some discourse concerning the Arte of the Lightsabre, to the end that I might thereby, both the better retain that which I have already learned, and also add some new lesson thereunto.

From youth my heart has been inclined toward the Way of the Jedi. My first duel was when I was thirteen, I struck down a Sith, one Darth Khee. When I was sixteen I struck down an able Sith, Darth Tada Yama. When I was twenty-one I went up to the Coruscant and met all manner of Jedi, never once failing to win in many contests.
