Itís focused on the ideals of limb independence, unpredictability, sharp, unnatural movements, strikes from surprising places, like around the back and over the shoulder, and naturally reducing your vulnerable openings. Itís very aggressive and good at playing your opponent to your advantage, so I see it as probably an off-sect of Djem-So. Furthermore, it draws moderately on the force-instinct of the user, and as awkward as it is to use, itís practice should come naturally and without the prerequisite of overthinking your every move. Sometimes actions are almost involuntary. NOTE: for these reasons, it looks pretty stupid and uncomfortable to watch, but hey, if it works. In terms of a name, as mentioned in the title, I donít know where to start in terms of etymology, but Way of the Dianoga (the trash monster from ANH) is at the front of my mind for a sub-title. Iím really new to this type of thing and I know this description is abstract and rambly but if you have any ideas about aspects to add, omit, or change about what Iíve said, please send them my way. Thanks!

Interesting.

I had an idea for a "new" lightsaber style, sort of how Vapaad is an offshoot of Juyo, this would be similar.

I was going to call it "Jun-Sai." https://swfanon.fandom.com/wiki/Form_VIII:_Jun-Sai
It was to be, basically, a Lightsaber version of Gunkata -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcs2En6tGRw


I don't remember how i came up with that name, but it may have been a combination of the two terms:
Jung- https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Jung_ma
and Sai - https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Sai

A quick google also tells me "junsai" is a type of japanese soup. I did not Know that.

My advice would be to go through the Wook articles for Saber Combat - https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Lightsaber_combat/Legends  - and try putting a few different terms together.

 Another idea is to use Google Translate to come up with something that sounds good. For example, I used Google Translate to look up the word "deceive" which I decide to use based on your description "strikes from surprising places", and came up with the Hindi "dhokha", the Chinese "Qīpiŗn", and Japanese "Azamuku"
