In case you were wondering what Daisy Ridley has been up to since the incredible success of her breakout movie, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” she’s been working on her Jedi skills. 

Here Ridley posted a video on Instagram of her doing wushu martial arts training (which is certainly related to the moves she’ll have honed in the next “Star Wars” movie), using what looks like a practice lightsaber.

Fun side note: The person who shot the video is stuntman Liang Yang, who is best known in “Star Wars” lore as cult favourite TR-8R, a stormtrooper in “The Force Awakens.”

“Star Wars: Episode VIII,” the sequel to “Force Awakens,” opens in theatres December 15, 2017.
