"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. 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 also 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]

The ancient style of Shien utilized an unconventional reverse grip, which Ahsoka Tano was known to prefer and use during battles.[1]
