"And reflecting blaster bolts? An impressive trick if you can pull it off."
Kanchar, to Luke Skywalker[src]

Form V, also known as Djem So or Shien[1] (pronounced shee-ENN),[9] was the fifth form of lightsaber combat used by members of the Jedi Order. Basic Form V allowed a Jedi to deflect blaster fire back at an opponent, turning the Jedi's defense into an offensive action.

The Djem So variant of Form V was based on defending with solid blocks and parries, then immediately countering with strong counterattacks and ripostes, and was geared toward and created for lightsaber-to-lightsaber combat, but also still reasonably useful for blast deflection.[1] Anakin Skywalker and later when he became Darth Vader was a known user of Djem So.[9]

The Shien variant of Form V allowed the utilization of an unconventional reverse grip, which Ahsoka Tano was known to prefer and use during battles.[1]
