  • Since the Hyuga can release chakra from all of their chakra points i suspected they can inject chakra in their opponents from all of them aswell. Do you think the Hyugas can inject chakra into their opponents chakra network through a kick? Wouldnt suprise me if they'd push their knee up in the opponents stomach for example and release chakra into them.

    What do you guys think?

    • Well, it seems like the Hyuga members inject chakra into their opponent not just through the hand, but rather through their fingers because they aim for tenketsu (which are quite small), so to pinpoint them accurately, they need a small but precise hit. Such a thing can't be done with larger parts of the body, unless some Hyuga have an ability to control their toes as good as the fingers... I don't say it's impossible, but Hyuga's battlestyle relies on these small accurate hits, and if they'd try to perform this hits with the entire foot, for example, there's a significant chance they would miss the tenketsu and the chakra volume they expelled from the entire foot would get wasted.

      This isn't entire clear. We learn from the Climbing Tree exercise that the feet are the most difficult to control chakra from. But it can be done. It's then not clear if regular people can emit chakra from their entire body (but it's really hard) and Hyuga can do so easily, or if regular people can only emit chakra from their lungs, hands and feet and Hyuga can do so from everywhere.

      The second one may seem more logical considering how we're introduced to this, but it makes the least sense: things like Body Size modifications or armoring one's skin or chakra shrouds are difficult to explain from a "only hands/feet/lungs" perspective.

    • I didn't say it's almost impossible to control and expell chakra from your feet (although it could be so). I just imagined that using toes for the Gentle Fist would be quite inconvenient, especially since the fingers have vastly more freedom in their moves than the toes on your feet.

      I'm saying that according to the manga, it is. I'm also saying that it's not clear if such restrictions exist for the Hyuga.
