"A wall between the Republic and its enemies, the Jedi Guardian stands firm in the face of overwhelming odds and dares opponents to attack. Perfect concentration and use of the Force allows smooth movement even in heavy armor–making the Guardian a hard target to take down. Leaders on and off the battlefield, Guardians also inspire allies to amazing feats, making them invaluable for conflicts of any size. All Jedi Guardians learn to move in heavy armor and build extra energy to perform spectacular feats. Guardians can opt to learn Vigilance, developing attacks that power through weaker opponents with ease and concentrating on fewer strikes that hit harder; Defense, redirecting enemies’ attacks against the Guardian’s allies toward the Guardian’s sturdy self; and Focus, specializing in advanced Force techniques to increase the potency of lightsaber attacks and perform telekinetic feats to hamper opponents."
―In-game Codex (Game Rules)[src]

Jedi Guardian is one of two Advanced Classes for the Jedi Knight. Before the Jedi Purge, there were three Jedi Classes. The Jedi Guardian was one of them, along with the Jedi Sentinel and the Jedi Consular. They are the Republic counterpart of the Sith Juggernaut.
