What is a Jedi Knight
Requested and Answered by BrJohn on 09-Mar-2006 17:21 (11272 reads)
Jedi Knight; a member in good standing with the Temple who shows a serious commitment to the Order and has demonstrated knowledge of what it means to be a Jedi, and what the Temple means by The Force, in both thought and action. A Jedi Knight may or may not be a member of the Clergy. It is a dignity granted by the Temple Of The Jedi Order.

 The Training Syllabus

The path of Jediism is not an easy one to walk. To aid in this, we here at the Temple of the Jedi Force have developed a Training Syllabus for all new members (Jedi Initiates) to follow until they are approached by a Knight or Master to be mentored to the rank of Jedi Knight. Here is the syllabus and the descriptions of each rank and their responsibilities:

Jedi Training Syllabus

That which follows is an outline or guide for the induction and training of all Jedi within the Temple of the Jedi Force. This proposal simply names the minimum topics and assignments that all Jedi must meet in Force to progress within the ranks of the Temple. The driving purpose behind this document, like the very creation of the Knight's Marshall's office, is to provide uniformity and commonality for the Temple of the Jedi Force's membership.

This syllabus is merely a guide for those invested and involved in the training of the Temple's membership. Any teacher is free to add to these topics and assignments as they see fit. Added writings, quizzes, discussions, etc. are excellent contributions to the training of Younglings and Apprentices. However, any modification would be left to the sole discretion of the instructing Jedi, just as any teacher in a public school can teach whatever it is that they feel is appropriate so long as they meet state-mandated requirements. Provided, of course, that these minimum requirements are met and completed.

Youngling (Registered User):

A Jedi Youngling, as a newcomer to the Temple, is charged with the responsibility of familiarizing them self with the basic precepts and foundations upon which the Temple of the Jedi Force is based. To this end a Jedi Youngling must keep a journal which is not limited to but must, at minimum, include discussion of the following:

The Jedi Code

16 Teachings of the Jedi

3 Tenets:

The Vows of the Jedi

The Jedi Creed

* After completion of the journal, and with the approval of the Knight’s Marshall’s office, the Jedi Youngling becomes eligible for apprenticeship and the Youngling may then be chosen by either a Knight or a Master to become an Apprentice. The selection process works in only one way... the Knight or Master approaches their Apprentice, not the other way around. A Knight or Master may have multiple Apprentices so long as the number of Apprentices to Knight or Master does not exceed a ratio of to three (3) one (1). Furthermore, a Jedi Youngling may reject a Knight or Master that approaches them as a teacher. The Jedi Youngling will remain eligible to become an Apprentice indefinitely until they are approached by a Knight or Master who they wish to work with.


An Apprentice’s primary responsibility is to familiarize them self with the membership of the Temple, to learn of the Force through the wisdom and teachings of their master, to begin taking an active role in the formulation and maintenance of the Temple, and to gain an understanding of what it means to be a Jedi.

Cover the Joseph Campbell material found in the Study Downloads module and and other materials therein contained that the Knight or Master wishes to assign their Apprentice(s).

Read I, Jedi by Michael Stackpole. *This is optional and left to the discretion of the Master.

The Jedi Trials (Two-page essay on how the Apprentice has faced these trials):

The Trial of Skill
The Trial of the Flesh
The Trial of Courage
The Trial of the Spirit

* This essay is to be assigned by the Knight or Master to their Apprentice at the time that the teacher feels is appropriate. The completed essay must be read and approved by the training Knight or Master. Furthermore, after approval by the Apprentice’s master the essay must then be submitted for review by the entirety of the Jedi Council (which means that each council member must read the essay before voting on whether or not the Apprentice in question is worthy of promotion to the rank of Jedi Knight). Following the reading of the Apprentice’s essay a council member can vote for or against the Apprentice’s promotion to the rank of Jedi Knight. In order for an Apprentice to be promoted to the rank of Jedi Knight they must have the majority vote of the Jedi council in favor of their promotion and must be at least eighteen (18) years of age although seventeen (17) years of age is possible in the most exemplary and extraordinary of Apprentices.

An Apprentice must retain this rank for a minimum of nine months before becoming eligible for advancement to the rank of Jedi Knight.


A Jedi Knight’s primary responsibility is the education and training of Jedi Apprentices. A Knight may volunteer to aid in the education of Younglings as well if the volunteered assistance is accepted by the office of the Knight’s Marshall. In such a case the energies and efforts of the Knight in question are to be directed by the office of the Knight’s Marshall and the Knight must adhere to and obey the assignments of that office.

A Jedi Knight may become a Master after successfully training an Apprentice to the rank of Knight. Though this is the most common manner, it is not always the case. The rank can also be achieved through significant contribution to the Temple of the Jedi Force in some capacity (such as lore, special program(s), a body of written doctrine or other written works, etc). If there is a significant contribution made to the Temple of the Jedi Force (this excludes any and all financial contributions) the Knight in question can be nominated by one or more council members to be voted to the rank of a Jedi Master. Full promotion to the rank of Jedi Master is contingent upon the majority vote of the Council in favor of the promotion, this includes the instance of a Knight training an Apprentice to the rank of Jedi Knight.

A Knight must retain this rank for a minimum of nine months before becoming eligible for advancement to the rank of Jedi Master.


A Jedi Master’s primary responsibility is to continue in all of the duties of a Jedi Knight. The education of Apprentices and Younglings is still of great concern to a Jedi Master and a Master is still capable of taking on Apprentices of their own. In addition to these existing responsibilities every Jedi Master may be called upon to assume moderation control of the Temple of the Jedi Force’s message board forum(s). This additional responsibility helps to ensure that the Temple’s message boards have moderation at nearly all times and that each Jedi Master takes responsibility for the content and conduct of the Temple of the Jedi Force’s message boards, where all members congregate (from the newest Youngling to the longest-standing Jedi Council member).

Good Luck and May the Force be With You,
Jedi Grayson Dark

 Re: Please
joseph, you seem eager to learn. but you must learn patience and more importantly you must learn that jedi do not grave battle of any sense, including battle with the darkside. there must be balance and harmony in the universe. for that there must be both light and dark.in the movies the jedi sought only to restore the balance that was lost. and remember obi wan struck down darth maul out of anger and revenge forbidden by the code and of a dark nature. the will of the Force is our life. light and dark are nothing but perspectives of the Force. people who are slefish and rely on emotions and passions are out of harmony with the Force. true the darkside seeks to usurp that harmony but thats why we are here to maintain and defend as gaurdians of peace. may the Force be with you,always. and take my words merely as an attempt to guide you along the jedi path. -koda

 An Answer
Joseph and Malevalon, welcome. If you are looking for someone to train you, then I think I can get you started for now.

Firstly, understand this isnt a roleplaying site ok? Go ahead and get into our SMART FAQ and Study Downloads section and start looking over the Joseph Campbell and Alan Watts materials.

There is also a live chat class held by Master Kyp on Sundays between 6-7 pm Central U.S. time. Feel free to join in on those and ask questions. Also, make sure you fill out an apprentice application in the membership forms area. After that, just post your questions on the boards and talk to Masters who interest you. We try to match everyone up based on like minded perspectives, and that kind of thing.

Again, I offer you a warm welcome and invite you to look around and enjoy what the site has to offer.
