Animators often practice animating action sequences by creating a hand-drawn version of a live action movie scene, the more dynamic motion in the scene the better.
So when Arifumi Imai, the talented animator who has worked on One Punch Man, Naruto: Shippuden and Attack On Titan, wanted some action animation practice he chose the Obi-Wan vs. Darth Maul lightsaber fight from The Phantom Menace as his inspiration.

The scene is kept simple and rough, since it's just an exercise, but you can imagine how amazing it would look as a polished scene in an anime series.
