"Swinging the blade about the body in a blur of deflection and deadly attacks is one of the many Jar'Kai techniques."
―Description of Rising Whirlwind[src]

The Rising Whirlwind was a lightsaber combat maneuver employed by users of Jar'Kai. Useful for deflecting blaster shots, it involved the lightsaber wielder spinning his or her lightsabers around like an unstoppable tornado.
