Taijutsu (Body Techniques)
Tessenka no Mai Taijutsus are the body and hand to hand skills of the ninja. Taijutsus do not require hand seals. Instead the ninja will train their body in different forms of fighting. A ninja can also use their inherent Bloodline abilities when doing Taijutsus. Clans such as Hyuuga can utilize their ability to see the inner chakra channels of their opponent and then stop the flow, or utilize the Kaiten technique to form a protective barrier by releasing chakra from their body.
