## use chakra?

when neji does 64 palm, does he use chakra to jab the opponent's tenketsu or just jabs it without chakra?—This unsigned comment was made by 75.2.222.126 (talkcontribs) .

He uses chakra. Jacce | Talk 03:23, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't think he uses chakra, I think he just needs lots of speed and his Byakugan too see the points. yomi-

He still needs chakra to hurt the points. According to Kidomaru, he creates a needle of chakra between his fingertips that affects the point he hits. Jacce | Talk 14:51, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

then i agree with you. yomi-

## Strikes

Could someone shed some light on how many times this jutsu hits an opponent? The number it keeps getting switched to is logical, but the manga seems misleading if that's the case. In chapter 101, when Neji says "four palms", there are literally four palms in the panel. The other panels are inconclusive, and the jutsu's second use in chapter 194 is considerably less helpful. Help please? ~SnapperTo 03:06, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

If it helps, when Neji uses this technique against Kidomaru in the anime; when Neji shouts "four palms", you can hear Kidomaru getting hit four times. Jacce | Talk 05:31, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
The first databook states that Neji hit a total of sixty-four tenketsu. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 09:17, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

It is hard to say how many strikes and in what pattern the attack is in for the notion of it consisting of 64 strikes and the notion of "4 Palms" being four seperate strikes from the first set of strikes and so on are unreconciable for that pattern would result in 126 strikes instead of 64.—This unsigned comment was made by 67.162.251.247 (talkcontribs) .

in the game Naruto Clash of Ninja Revolution when Neji uses the 8 trigrams 64 palms it is a 64 hit combo. so I think he strikes 64 times yomi-

The four hits you see in that one panel in chapter 101 might include the two hits Neji did when saying "Two Palms". --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 16:46, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
Or, it could simply be a way of showing the four strikes, kinda like how you'll see in some comics a character punching another rapidly, and multiple fists appearing in the pane. I believe it's just a representation of the four strikes, personally. - Anonymous

## The Image

Why the image of this jutsu was from part 2? --Ilnarutoanime26 (Talk-Contribs.-Links) 03:52, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

## Juukenhou

Isn't the 柔拳法 Juukenhou part of the technique's name? Then why isn't it written in the article's name? Look here for proof Seelentau 愛 14:05, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

If I am right, did you include the "Gentle Fist" thing? --NejiLoverr26 (Ilnarutoanime) 14:38, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
...huh? What I want to say is: In the manga, this technique is called Gentle Fist Style: Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms, as it says in the Other names section of the jutsubox. What I want to know is: Why isn't the full name of the jutsu used in the article's name? Seelentau 愛 14:57, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, but try to check ShounenSuki's translations. --NejiLoverr26 (Ilnarutoanime) 15:04, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
He didn't translate this jutsu. Also, concerning the Juukenhou/Juukenpou issue: On the RAW you can see that there is no ぽ po, only ほ ho. I dunno whiy Kishi changed that later here. I think I should wait for Suki-kun for a proper answer, I guess~ Seelentau 愛 15:07, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
I believe we drop "Juukenhou" because it's dropped in the databook. We do the same with Dance of the Crescent Moon. ~SnapperTo 17:42, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

## Relation

Hello ^^ (first i want to say, that i dont speak eng, we only have eng in school, so... be patient with me please :))

Eh, i dont know, but its possible, that this technique is based on chinese "Ba gua"[1]? This Technique 8 Trigrams (totally 8 trigrams we can make with broken and unbroken line) 64 Palms (totally 64 hexagrams we can made, if we combine two trigrams)--—This unsigned comment was made by 89.102.233.65 (talkcontribs) .
