The Jedi and Sith have long used lightsaber combat as the favored fighting style. It is almost neccesary to know how to use a lightsaber to be an excellent Jedi. The original combat, based on more conventional swordplay evolved into seven common forms, I: Shii-Cho, II: Makashi, III: Soresu, IV: Ataru, V: Shien/Djem So, VI: Niman, VII: Juyo/Vaapad. Jedi learn elements from all forms, but it is very difficult to master them all. Traditional sword techniques (attack/defence) were featured in all forms

Other FormsEdit

These were techniques or styles mostly based off of other forms. Form "Zero" encouraged as little lightsaber use as possible.

  • Sokan - using terrain to one's advantage
  • Shien - attacking many foes at once with wide, sweeping strokes and an underhand grip
  • Jar'Kai - two-handed lightsaber combat, using one blade for attack, another for defense
  • Lus-ma - only once mentioned, used by Grievous' MagnaGuards
  • Form "Zero" - avoiding combat when not necessary
  • Dun Möch - distracting and taunting an opponent, a Sith technique
  • Telekinetic lightsaber combat
  • Trispzest - a type of aerial dueling
  • Mounted lightsaber combat
  • Double-bladed lightsaber combat
  • Lightwhip combat
  • Tràkata - taking advantage of a lightsaber's ability to be turned quickly on and off
