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.

Life was such a wheel that no
man could stand upon it for long.
And it always, at the end, came
round to the same place again.
