If you look at the reflection on the floor, a very nice reflection by the way, you can clearly see from Kyle's saber trail that he is swinging down, and that his opponent is swinging up to block Kyle's shot at his middle section.
Remember all the weird camera angles from Obi-Wan, and from Jedi Knight when they were being developed? Well they are doing the same thing here. They are fighting and they just rotated the camera to get a cool shot to tease us with.
