    Yoda took on Palpatine and lost

    Obi Wan and Anakin took on Dooku and lost

    Mace Windu and Yoda were sitting in a room with Palpatine and couldn't sense him

    2 Siths orchestrated the slaughter of thousands of Jedi

    Kylo Ren still a padawan kills other padawans and Luke exiles himself

    how did the jedi become weak in the force and not the sith?

    if you strictly by the saga the sith are true badasses and the jedi are wussies.

    Actually, it was a draw.

    Dooku was simply more powerful. He could not beat Yoda.

    Mace Windu defeated Palpatine in his office.

    Rookie Jedi Luke defeated the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader.

    it was a draw then yoda ran...and later exiled himself

    he ran from yoda but he lost to anakin only after he tapped the darkside.

    from wookiepeida
    Form VII, also known as Juyo or Vaapad, was the seventh form of lightsaber combat. It was considered the most aggressive and unpredictable form, earning the nickname 'the Ferocity Form'. Because of this, it was generally favored by Dark-siders, though it was practiced by Jedi as well. Notable practitioners of Form VII were Darth Maul and Mace Windu.[1]

    Vaapad was explained as being a state of mind rather than just a fighting style, allowing the wielder to channel his own inner darkness into the duel, and accept the fury of the opponent. Windu, Bulq, and Windu's Padawan Depa Billaba were three notable practitioners of the Vaapad variant.

    so the jedi who decivisly beat a sith lord was tapping as close as possible to his darkside.

    Luke beat vader by flying into a rage after vader threatened leia. It was the closest luke had come at that point to the dark side.

    Its even suggested that rey in defeating kylo ren was sorely tempted to kill him thus tempted by the darkside in that moment.

    not to mention this is the SECOND time the jedi are close to extinction because of the machinations of the Sith

    He ran after clone troopers arrived to help him.


    He only tapped the darkside when he decapitated him. By then he was already defeated.

    Meh. Yoda has spoken.

    But it wasn't the Darkside that enabled her to beat him.

    really? this guy looks like he couldn't handle some storm troopers???

    anger and fear leads to the darkside anakin had those in abundance he COMPLETED the turn when he capped dooku but he was already dancing on the edge...you could say that when he killed all those sand people who killed his mother he was already on the dark side he just didn't acknowledge it.

    the same with Luke when he cut vader's hand off...

    Emperor Palpatine: [laughing] Good! Your hate has made you powerful. Now, fulfill your destiny and take your father's place at my side!

    Not while also fighting the Emperor.

    Its like this. Jedi techniques are to Karate and Aikido (defensive) as Dark Side techniques are to Kung Fu and Ninjutsu (offensive). Both sides provide their own unique abilities. Practitioners of both arts borrow techniques from the other side.

    Examples:

    Luke uses a "Force choke" - a Dark Side technique.

    [​IMG]

    Kylo Ren employs a "Force Stasis" - a Jedi technique.

    [​IMG]

    Darth Tyranus utilizes "Force healing" - a Jedi technique.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It doesn't mean that either side is more powerful than the other.

    yet we've seen two examples of 1 sith slaughtering or orchestrating the slaughter of many jedi. And when a jedi wins in head to head fights its usually because they tap into the same level of aggressiveness that the sith tap into.

    The Jedi do have power in numbers. I don't disagree with OP. One on one and pound for pound (so to speak) i don't see Jedi often beating Sith.

    That's why Maul could take on Obi Wan and Qui Gon, Dooku could handle Obi Wan and Anakin, Kylo Ren was able to take on both Finn and Rey after having received a blaster bolt to the gut, so on. Also, important to note Luke's victory over Vader/Sidious had to be a symbolic one. He was never gonna be able to take on both of them himself (the way a sith may have been able to against two jedi).

    The other point is that that's how the sith work. Quality over quantity. Two there can be, no more, no less. Culling of the herd until they find the strongest. One to embody the power, the other to crave it. Until the time comes when they can surpass the master and become even stronger.

    Sith do not show restraint the way jedi do. Which can be seen as a weakness but also a strength.

    Still though, this all holds up against Yoda's wisdom:

    Because over time light side forces will build and overcome the darkness. Until such time that someone like Palpatine can re-tip the scales. One big balancing act. Light and dark.

    Rey was untrained, and Finn was a stormtrooper. Given how quickly Rey picked it up (along with the Jedi mind trick, firing a blaster, etc.), it really looks like she's the most powerful force user (in terms of potential) in any of the movies. I have my suspicions that

    She'll end up being the one who brings balance to the force.

    Don't forget all those Jedi dying like wimps during Order 66. With all the Jedi just walking away into exile it seems the Jedi's weakness is surrendering.
