The onboard computer housed inside a remote was programmed with numerous combat drills. Each drill ended after a preset time or when a score had been reached. The trainee would set their blaster to emit only light, so as not to damage the remote. The sensors on the remote automatically detected light and scored it as a hit.

Jax glanced down at the weapon, saw his distorted image staring back at him from the blade's surface. "Yeah? How do you know th¯?"
I-Five suddenly whipped up his left hand, index finger extended, and fired a laser beam at Jax. The laser beam splashed off the ionized fire that suddenly coated the length of the blade, which Jax had automatically raised to block the beam.
"That's how," I-Five said. "The speed of light is just under three hundred kilometers per second. You are currently seven-point-three meters from me. Your Force-augmented anticipatory reflex action obviously is working fine. You just have to let them."

Also puts the "are blasters FTL" argument to bed, I guess.
"The Daemon lied with every breath. It could not help itself but to deceive and dismay, to riddle and ruin. The more we conversed, the closer I drew to one singularly ineluctable fact: I would gain no wisdom here."
Not really, that was just a misquote: "That's how," I-Five said. "The speed of light is just under three hundred thousand kilometers per second. You are currently seven-point-three meters from me. Your Force-augmented anticipatory reflex action is obviously working fine. You just have to let it."
And that's nothing new anyway, precog has always been a thing and Jedi have always blocked blasters even in close range.
And there are many instances of jedi being said to react in "nanoseconds" which would make them as fast as, if not faster than, the speed of lifgt. Revanchiste linked a page from the vs battles wiki, but if you go to battledome wiki or deathbattle wiki, you'll find tons of these calculations which put jedi at FTL speeds. And Mace and Sidious were moving faster than Anakin could even see, and Luke managed to move so fast that it looked like he was using 20 lightsabers at once.
It depends what you want to think, really, because the case can be made that it's hyperbole, and the case can be made that they really do move that fast.
