Whilst underneath the tutelage of Jedi Grasp Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson), Obi-Wan used to be skilled essentially in Form IV, referred to as “Ataru” and characterised by way of being hyper-aggressive and fast paced (by the use of Wookieepedia). The loss of defensive functions on this shape without delay led to Qui-Gon’s dying by the hands of Darth Maul, and following this fight, Kenobi switched to the extra defensive taste of Form III, referred to as “Soresu.”
Regardless that no longer explicitly referenced inside the motion pictures themselves, Obi-Wan’s transition between combating kinds used to be defined in “Star Wars Insider” 62, through which author David West Reynolds explored the seven sorts of lightsaber struggle in a piece of writing titled “Combat Saber: Jedi Lightsaber Fight.” Transitioning to Soresu allowed Obi-Wan to grow to be a grasp of blocking off, parrying, and deflecting, and all over the Clone Wars, he used to be famend for being ready to live to tell the tale amidst hails of gunfire. Certainly, this extra defensive struggle method is what helped Obi-Wan conquer Anakin’s viciously competitive combating taste all over their duel.
With the extremely expected Disney+ sequence “Obi-Wan Kenobi” simply across the nook, we will be able to handiest hope to see Obi-Wan show a lot more of his signature combating taste one day –- and in all probability we will even get to see him move blades with Darth Vader himself yet one more time.
