In news that will make you completely jealous of little kids in Chile, comes word that a 'Star Wars' school has opened in the South American country. The pint-sized Padawans can now attend an actual Jedi Temple in Quilpué where they'll learn martial arts and make their geeky parents totally envious of their training.

Children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old can learn yoga and Taekwondo, combined with the teachings of Jedi values like wisdom and nobility. The lucky apprentices even get their own lightsabers, because the school's creator, William Berrueta, believes in crafting a fully immersive environment that is educational and entertaining.

Berrueta was inspired to offer the unique classes after 'Star Wars: The Exhibition' made its way to Chile in 2009. It was apparently the first time the country was able to check out the props from the film series in person. Over 200 items from the Lucasfilm archives were on display, including life-size starships and Darth Vader's costume.

May the force be with you, kids, and may you not lose an eye during the lightsaber drills.
