Djem so form with dual wielding sabers?

Djem So is essentially Shien, and their names are relatively interchangeable. It was created by practitioners of Soresu because Form III lacked offensive capabilities.

From what I'm given to understand, Djem So does utilize power attacks, but the power attacks you guys describe sound exceptionally like Juyo. Djem So is used for fighting against more than one opponent, and the attacks associated with the form are generally created from redirecting enemy attacks or finding openings in their defenses.

The biggest example of Shien/Djem So combat in practice is Galen Malek or Vader's Apprentice. The grip he has on the hilts of his lightsabers is a hallmark of the Shien style. He comes to wield two sabers in the sequel, and while he obviously bounces between Shien and Juyo in combat, the style is predominantly Djem So/Shien and seems to be possible.

Of course, really anytime a saberist is fighting with two blades, he's practicing Jar'Kai.

No galen marek is practicing a variation of shien called sith-shien. It utlizes high speed fluid attacks and the reverse angle it's some what hard to do the power attacks Djem-so calls for. Though there are times he switches in his style to a standard grip as he does a VERY hard swing showing the Djem-so.

Problem is, saber styles need to be retconned and redone. IMO Djem-so is a different style than Shien. One focuses on fighting other people with overwhelming strength, one is about a more aggressive form against blaster pistols.

It can at times yes. Juyo is one of the most unpredictable forms out there. I mean look at Sideous and Maul.

Both used Juyo.
