BALBOA PARK, Calif. (KGTV)--Every month, family and friends gather around the fountain at Balboa Park to have lightsaber duels in a tournament. 

Star Wars fans and martial artists from all over San Diego come dressed up to duel competitively or just to have fun. 

"The nerd community is no longer in the basement playing Dungeons & Dragons," said Nick Murico, creator of the Underground Lightsaber Fighters of San Diego league. "They want to get out. They want to be active."
