Form V, also known as Shien, Djem So, The perseverance form, or The way of the Krayt Dragon was the fifth form of lightsaber combat used by members of the Jedi Order. It was developed by Jedi Masters who believed that Form III, Soresu, did not allow sufficient opportunities to counterattack. While Form IV requires speed and agility, Form V requires strength, thus making it the most physically demanding of all the forms. Jedi without the natural ability to overpower their opponents should study another form. Conversely, Jedi of towering stature and imposing musculature may choose to focus on this form, particularly because it requires less agility than the other forms. 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, and overwhelming, counterattacks and ripostes, and was geared toward, and created for lightsaber to lightsaber combat, but also still reasonably useful for blast deflection. It's signature move is the Fluid Reposte, which deflects a forceful enemy attack and immediately counterattacks.[9]

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