Which Lightsaber Form Would You Use?
In keeping with the Star Wars-themed name of this blog, here’s another interesting survey I found that gave these results:
|You scored as Form II: Makashi. After Form I’s proliferation as a saber combat technique, Form II or “Way of the Ysalamiri,” came about as a means of lightsaber-to-lightsaber combat. It is described as being very elegant, powerful, and requiring extreme precision. The blade manipulation required for this form is very refined and requires much focus, but the results are extremely powerful.
Count Dooku, from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, has mastered Form II to the highest degree, fighting with the precision built into the ancient technique.
Even more interesting is that I only got this after a tiebreaker question, which would have yielded this result:
|You scored as Form III: Soresu. Form III, the “Way of the Mynock,” was inspired by the need to deflect Blaster bolts. It is very defensive; it has no aggressive qualities. Form III utilises motions occurring very close to the body to achieve a nearly total protection, efficiently expending as little energy as possible to execute those moves. This technique exposes as little body target zone open areas as is possible, making a well-trained practitioner nearly invincible. Testimony to this is the fact that Ben Kenobi, a Form III master, only falls when he chooses to let Darth Vader kill him.
So I could have gone either way–a duelist or a defender. What’s interesting is that I just missed out on Vapaad, a style that channels the Dark Side. Mace Windu rocks. Anytime you have Shaft kicking Sith behind, it’s a great movie.
