Derived jutsu

A taijutsu where one launches a succession of high kicks and low kicks. Firstly, the opponent's evasion margin is restrained upon seeing the high kick, thus augmenting the chances for the low kick to hit the mark. So originally the high kick is little more than a feint. The technique can also be used in the form of a spinning-roundhouse kick through the air, either alone or in unison with another user for more efficiency.


  • Sometimes, this technique in some of the video games (such as the Naruto: Clash of Ninja series) is often performed akin to the Leaf Strong Whirlwind (as a spinning-roundhouse kick through the air with both legs in succession).
