If your reflex is to swing a staff that's heavy, and you do that with a sword that's light, there's a chance you may stab yourself.

"If you read the novels"
Disney said extended universe is non-canon.
"As for her martial skills, the reflexes and general understanding of melee combat would translate somewhat well so that she wouldn't be a complete noob with a sword, wouldn't it? "
Reflexes honed to be used with a heavy staff, not a light laser sword.

>Disney said extended universe is non-canon.

No, Lucasfilm said Legends is non-canon. The canon now consists of every book, every movie, every game, every TV show, and every comic made after April of 2014.

Her reflexes aren't really tied to a weapon now are they?

I think it's more that she didn't really suck at anything.
She could pilot a ship she'd never flown before easily, fight with a lightsaber and beat a formidable opponent(And if you bring up her staff, then you don't understand how big of a difference there is between a long, heavy staff, and a light sword where the weight's only in the handle), use the force to make a guard let her free, and then later on is able to force pull a saber to herself, all without sustaining any major injuries.
Meanwhile Luke could only use the force to help guide himself in the first episode, and in the second struggled with force pulling a saber to himself. And throughout the series, he repeatedly sustained injuries and regularly got his ass beat, even losing a hand. Yeah, he did manage to fly a fighter pretty well in the first one, but they established that he's flown things on his planet before, not to mention he'd used the force to assist himself.

If you read the novels about what happened before the force awakens it states that Rey built herself a simulator from all the junk she salvaged which explains where she got her skills.

As for her martial skills, the reflexes and general understanding of melee combat would translate somewhat well so that she wouldn't be a complete noob with a sword, wouldn't it?

Now about the force. Luke never channeled his fear, anger or hate until the final film when he defeated vader. Rey however This is just my theory used her fear agressively during the fight and around it. She's also obviously read about what the jedi could do while Luke had not. I agree that the mind trick was a bit over the top but pulling the lightsaber towards her... I can accept that. All in all, she used her fear and anger to amplify her powers when fighting Kylo. As for the injuries? I can agree that she should have been atleast a little injured.

Also if Luke used the force to help himself fly a fighter then the same could be said for Rey using the force to help her fight.

Helt okej IG. Jag har en mental sjukdom, bipolär 1.

Har mer allierade än de flesta jag känner, men känner bara något för ett fåtal människor. Kan lätt bara slå om och sluta bry mig om nära vänner och så.

Jag är hyfsat socialt skillad ändå, folk säger jag är charmig, rolig, empatisk, vis, smart osv. Men jag gör det bara på rutin nästan. Inget genuint. Allt inlärt.

Då beror det väl förmodligen på din sjukdom?

Har ingen aning och har slutat bry mig om de flesta sociala normerna. Jag vet hur det låter men tro mig, jag går inte runt i en trenchcoat och fedora. trots det blir jag också beskriven som charmig och rolig trots att jag aldrig riktigt fattat varför. Har, inte som jag vet om iallafall, ingen mental sjukdom men jag känner aldrig riktigt att jag riktigt hör hemma någonstans. Inte på Fj, min förra klass eller bland de flesta av mina vänner. Det kanske har att göra med vårt samhälle?
