That said, from what I understand there's a strong gyroscopic effect on a lightsaber's blade so you need to anticipate and/or compensate quite a bit for that when swinging it or it'll go much wider than you had planned... which is basically why only someone trained in the Force is capable of using a lightsaber effectively. And why most hold it with two hands.
If you read the wiki (maybe youre one of the people who dont listen to the wiki and say that stuff is BS, w/e in that case) it explains the slowing down.
