all these breakthroughs of course are mostly due to the manchildren awakening and all that.
however, sheev too was master of the high ground, as demonstrated in this cgi and john williams sandwich
essentially the breakthrough was mathematical in nature: no matter how you look at it, Obi Wan always has the high ground. this can be further extrapolated from the Dark Side force perspective: "Good is just a point of view."

"IT'S OVER FATHER, I HAVE THE HIGH GROUND!"
every single Star Wars trilogy has at least one high ground scene. i strongly believe that Disney should honour this tradition in the sequel trilogy at some point.
also I was wrong, while the spinning trick was mastered by Sheev Palpatine, it was actually his apprentice Anakin Skywalker (later Lord Vader, who only used the spinning trick while piloting TIE interceptors)
as clearly demonstrated, young Anakin did attempt the spinning trick first, but was nowhere nearly as adept as his Sith Master.

but now there's the third trilogy that needs it own spin and high ground scenes. personally i think kylo should spin his hilt defensively, it would be a good trick. rey should take the high ground against kylo, since she's 5'7" and he's a 6'3" rageasaurus rex
the main reason spinning always worked well for Anakin was because he was the Chosen One, that's the only reason Sheev let him do all the spinning. Sith usually die when they try spinning, and even Anakin is always countered by the high ground. if Kylo really is Vader's heir, the high ground is Rey's best defense against his spins. as you can see, he clearly gets pre-emptively ready to twist his saber, but maybe he was too injured to pull of an effective spin.
Rey taking the high ground against Kylo (her possible cousin if she's Luke's daughter) would also fulfill honour to both the prequel and original trilogy if she does turn out to be Rey Kenobi Skywalker.
there's already news articles reporting stories about her being related to Obi Wan
She could be the daughter of Luke (bored after destroying the Empire and rebuilding the Jedi Order) fucking Obi Wan's illegitimate daughter he impregnated (circa post Fall of the Old Republic) some sand scavenger on Tattooine with (possibly cucked Uncle Owen and got Aunt Peru pregnant).
plenty of bored desert housewives would probably be taken up by an exiled former Jedi Master, and they don't have to worry about that whole "fucking leads to the Dark Side" thing since Anakin got angry and horny and destroyed the Jedi Order (and like 60 little kids).
It would be true pottery, just like George Lucas insisted Star Wars is.
