Is there anywhere in or around Toronto where one can learn how to wield a saber?

Saber Guild has lightsaber training. http://saberguild.org/temples/ I don't see one in Toronto, but there are a couple in New York that might be close.

You could always take up Kendo, a Japanese martial art that uses bamboo swords.

Just keep in mind that Legion members are forbidden from engaging in duels with members of the public.

My suggestion is to look at poses from the films and find a few that you can replicate well when someone wants to take your photo, or wants a photo with you. You will find out what works and what doesn't when you see photos appear online with you in them not looking as epic as you had imagined. It just comes with practice.

I know some saber duelists in Toronto/GTA if it interests you. There are other smaller groups too aside from Saber Guild.
