< Lightsaber Combat Forms >

The Lightsaber combat Forms are characteristic styles of Lightsaber use in battle.There are seven named forms described so far:

<Form I : Shii-Cho>
The basic and most simplistic Form of Lightsaber combat.This Form is taught to younglings.Known users-Stass Allie and Kit Fisto.

<Form II : Makashi>
This Form is most advantageous in Lightsaber Vs Lightsaber dueling.Elegant,effective and deadly.Few Jedi use it due to the rarity of this type of combat.Known users-Darth Tyranus,Exar Kun,Ki-Adi Mundi and Shaak Ti.

<Form III : Soresu>
This Form strongly emphasizes on defense and blaster fire deflection.Used by Jedi beset by multiple blaster-wielding opponents to defend themselves from incoming fire.Known users-Obi-Wan Kenobi,Barriss Offee,Luminara Unduli.

<Form IV : Ataru>
The acrobatic form,emphasizing agility,relatively aggressive and tends to open defense.Known users-Yoda,Qui-Gon Jinn,Obi-Wan Kenobi,Aayla Secura.

<Form V : Djem So>
This Form takes some of the defensive powers from Form III and channels them to offensive powers.Known users-Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader,Luke Skywalker,Plo Koon,Saesee Tiim,Agen Kolar,Kyle Katarn.

<Form VI : Niman>
The diplomatic Form,used by many Jedi in the period when Chancellor Palpatine was in power.Very well rounded,but does not excel anywhere.Note that all Jedi who practiced Niman was killed in the Battle of Geonosis.Often used as basis for Dual Saber combat.Known user-Coleman Trebor.

<Form VII : Juyo>
This Form is named after the multi-tailed,lightning fast Vaapad of Sarapin.The Juyo is the hardest to learn and most dangerous Form,overwhelming and unpredictable.Closely associated with the Dark side.Known users-Mace Windu,Depa Billaba,Sora Bulq,Quinlan Vos (incomplete training),General Grievous (not pure Juyo,but an approximation borne of adjustment to Mace Windu),Darth Sidious.

It's reasonable that the Jedi and the Sith have developed other combat styles besides the legendary 7 classic Forms.
