After an Initiate completes their training with the Knight Marshall's, they may pick an area of specialized study. These areas of study are known as training groups. These groups are based on the area of study the Initiate feels he or she is most drawn towards.

If an Apprentice feel they have chosen the wrong group they may transfer to another with their teachers approval.

When an Apprentice has chocen their group they can send a personal message to any site admin and their status will be updated.

Apprentices and Knights have access to only one training group. Master have access to all three.


Specialized groups

Descriptions as taken from the book, The Jedi Path.

Jedi Sentinel
A Jedi Sentinel is the name given to one of the three Jedi Orders, and is considered the middle ground to the other Orders.

Jedi Sentinels receive adequate knowledge in both combat skills and knowledge of the Force, utilizing both skills when necessary. This Order is also unlike the other two; they realize that the Force has limitations and they are not blinded by faith.

Where a Guardian would break down a door, or a Consular would simply knock, a Sentinel would use their skills and ingenuity to pick the lock. Oftentimes, it was common that they may learn a series of non-Force associated skills such as security, demolitions or stealth techniques, as well as ingenuity.

Jedi Sentinels often take on tasks not well suited to the other Orders, preferring to stay in one place for a long period of time. Jedi Sentinels also practiced specialized techniques in the Force. A favored Force technique was a special form of Force Immunity that, combined with their increased mental conditioning, protected against outside mental influences, even Force-based attacks to guard them from effects such as fear or paralysis.

Although not often lit unless necessary in a situation, most Sentinels utilize a yellow blade in their light-saber, although like the other Orders, they are free to choose whichever color they feel best suited to. Most Sentinels believe that nobody deserves death and that everyone deserves a shot at redemption.

Paths:
Investigator
Recruiter
Shadow
Watchmen

Jedi Guardian
Jedi Guardians are needed to prevent the spread of evil and keep the peace, through combat if necessary.

Concentrating on martial training and their combat skills, the Jedi Guardians will engage in combat more often than the Consular or Sentinel Paths of the Jedi Order.

Descended from their Progenitors whose role were to defend the weak and uphold the laws of the Galactic Republic. The Guardians are often seen as the representative of the Jedi Order.

Spending most of their time honing their Martial skills, Jedi Knights who chose the path of the Guardian are often seen choosing a blue coloured crystal for their saber.

Although they spent much of their time honing their Saber skills, their force abilities were in no way inferior to that of the Jedi Consular, they were just as capable of using the force.

Paths:
Weapons Master
Lightsaber Instructor
Ace
Peace Keeper

Descriptions as taken from the book, The Jedi Path.

Jedi Consular
The path of the Jedi is one of harmony, one that avoids violence and seeks to unite living beings through the peace of the Force. Jedi Guardians are needed to prevent the spread of evil, but it is the Jedi Consulars who uphold the central precepts of the Jedi Code.

The Consulars seek diplomatic measures in spreading peace and harmony throughout the galaxy. Refraining from drawing their light-sabers (many Consulars wielded a green bladed light-saber) except as a measure of last resort, Consulars spend a great deal of time studying the mysteries of the Force.

Concentrating on mental refinement through study and meditation, Consulars seek to perfect the art of diplomacy and mediation, hoping to calm a tense situation or mend hurt feelings through civil discourse, reasoning, and parley, rather than drawing their light-sabers and cutting down an attacker.

Profound skill with the Force is the mark of a Jedi Consular. The greatest Healers, Seers, Prophets and Researchers have come from the ranks of the Jedi Consular. Consulars can be outstanding fighters if pushed, but are more likely to rely on Force talents.

Paths:
Seer
Healer
Researcher
Diplomat

Jediism is a modern conglomeration of widely accepted adaption of beliefs. George Lucas portrayed an already growing trend of people combining beliefs trying to form a unified religion. When he created the Star Wars saga, he portrayed this so well, using various aspects of Taoism, Shintoism, Buddhism, Christianity, Mysticism, and many other Religions' universal truths as well as a combination of different martial arts, and the Code of Chivalry, in order to create the Jedi and the philosophies behind the Force. The Jedi are modern versions of the Shao Lin Monk, the European Knight, and the Samurai Warrior all mixed together. The Jedi religion has become an inspiration and a way of life for many people throughout the world who take on the mantle of Jedi. Even though the name Jediism is fairly new, it is just as real as the ancient faiths and philosophies that it came from.

A Jedi applies the principles, ideals, philosophies, and teachings of Jediism in a practical manner within their own lives. Jedi seek the Living Force for guidance. Jedi follow what is considered to be the Light Side of the Force, and adhere to the ideals and philosophies of the Jedi religion. There is no absolute or universal consensus among the world's scholars as to the definition of religion, but the following is a good one, and is the official description of the religion of Jediism we adhere to at The Temple of the Jedi Force.

While many of the members here enjoy the Star Wars saga in all its forms, we are quite real and serious about becoming very real Jedi in the sense of following a Code, expanding our awareness, and being, in general, a great help to the world around us.

Of course we do. However, the principles that made up who the Jedi were in the movies are our inspiration to learn, grow, teach, and help. While we will never have powers like the fictional Jedi of the movies and books, we aspire to be greater than who we are each day and work for the ideal of all that is good in the world.

There is no age requirement to start training here as a Jedi. However, in order to become a Knight here at the Temple of the Jedi Force, you need to be at least 18 years of age (17 with consideration). It is an unwritten rule that most masters will not take someone under 16 as the student tends to be too immature to complete the training. This does not mean you can not become a student, but understand we really want full commitment and the willingness to be serious, hardworking, and patient.

Not necessarily. Though many of the members here at the Temple practice martial arts and swordsmanship of one sort or another, there is no solid requirement for either owning or learning how to use a sword/light saber.

As part of your training, some mentors may require their Apprentices to build their own Ceremonial Light saber hilt as a symbol of both who you are and the rank you have attained.

Different masters will require you to learn different things about the Force. Most will expect you to be familiar with definitions of the Force, the living Force, the flow of the Force and such. However a few masters will explore the properties and “abilities” of the Force. Though, be warned, you will not learn how to float your TV remote to your hand as that is not currently possible. If you do find a master who has been trained in the Force, understand that it takes YEARS to learn skills like sensing, telepathy, and telekinesis. Most masters will not expect or encourage such studies.
