As the infamous "Star Wars kid" video proved to the world years ago, the Force does not come easily to everyone. But in the video below, it appears to come naturally to Daisy Ridley.

Ridley, who plays Rey in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, actually trains to become a Jedi as part of her acting. Although the Jedi fighting style technically doesn't exist, it still looks like a hell of a workout.

Using a variety of different weapons, Ridley fights against mannequins and trainers to perfect her lightsaber techniques. Truly, if she released an exercise video of her training, à la Jane Fonda, she could probably make a pretty penny from this.

When you watch the video, you'll realize that Ridley put herself through the ringer to be the very best Jedi there ever was. Yoda would be pleased.
