I find it antithetical to how Yoda was presented in the OT. This was a character who was slow to violence, if he even fought at all. Who was all about the power of the immaterial force as a spiritual guide, not as a weapon. I wouldn't have been surprised if he didn't have a lightsaber at all. He was a teacher and mentor, not a soldier like the Jedi knights were.

And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
