And a pretty solid PC game, main character was Dash Rendar.

Luke is like his father and like any Skywalker before and after him.


They learn far more faster than most Average LightSider's/Dark-Sider's.

Its been stated thousands of times, Anakin was one of the quickest learning Jedi of all time.

Dooku even thought he was the greatest master of Djem So he had ever seen and was astonished to how fast he mastered it.


And we've all read/seen Luke learn Force Abilities within days. Hell he created some abilities that were unheard of in days and sometimes hours.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

"like any Skywalker before him" I didn't know mom was so talented.

A year, lol. That's like someone saying I'm going to go train for a year and then win an MMA championship. I think it might have been longer than a year.

Well you'd be wrong.

It was canonically a year.

Just like Luke canonically went from barely able to pull a lightsaber out of a pile of snow to being able to levitate multiple rocks and supply cases + R2D2 telekinetically while standing on his head and balancing Yoda on his foot in the few weeks he was on Dagobah.

Just like he canonically instinctively picked up the basics of Form V just from dueling Vader once.

Luke is canonically the most powerful and fastest learning Jedi of all time.

Total of Luke's training was 3 years, beginning in ANH and finishing in ROTJ. In that time frame he pretty much surpassed any jedi before in become a jedi knight, moreso impressive he did it with little resources. It took over a decade for a jedi to become a knight(typically), Luke did it in 3 years flat.

Edit: When I mean 3 years, I am counting his training with Obi-Wan, his training with Yoda, and then whatever else he did between ESB/ROTJ.

Do you want me to give you a list of people in real life who have had much less training than others and yet managed to achieve more accomplishments?

Actually, it's either one year, or only six months, going by what source you choose - novel says 6 months. Either way it's a short period.
