Users

The Frog Kata is a fighting style, and one of the Five Form Fists, used exclusively by those who have mastered Sage Mode. The senjutsu chakra used during Sage Mode "activates" the body in various ways, enhancing the user's speed, reflexes, strength, stamina and durability. This allows a sage to achieve incredible feats which include leaping great distances, shattering sharp materials with their bare hands, as well as lifting objects several times their size.

When using Frog Kata, the natural energy used by the practitioner to create senjutsu chakra also encapsulates the user as an aura of natural energy. This aura can act as an extension of their body and cannot be seen by anyone other than those who have trained in senjutsu. By utilising the aura, the user can extend the range and force of their physical attacks. Strikes that seemingly or would normally miss will actually make contact with the target. One punch has been shown to have enough force to cripple and completely finish off an opponent.

In addition, the enhanced speed, reflexes and heightened chakra sensing from Sage Mode, combined with the skilful body movements of Frog Kata, allows the practitioner to evade enemy strikes at the last possible moment.[1]

Trivia

  • Kata is a martial arts term referring to a pattern of defence-and-attack.
  • In the anime, Naruto used Frog Kata to break through Nine-Tailed Naruto Clone's Version 2 chakra cloak.[2]
