Hi, I have been reading all of this, and love the unique info given. First off, I am an avid Naruto fan. In my defense, I will tell all of you that I know most of it is purely fiction. However, I have studying Neji Hyuuga's techique. I too have found it to be an incredibly effective style. And to the guy who told that vivid story of beating the who uses the gentle fist, from the sounds of it, the guy you fought was nothing more than a second-rate impersonater. He did not perform the style correctly. You may have been blocking with your arms up, but with what I have learned, there were plenty of opportunities he could have taken such as attacking the bladder, liver, or maby even the kidneys. He could have been real fancy and taken out your knees. This technique relies on strategy. You must observe yor opponent and take advantage of his weak spots. No matter how much you train your body, your interal organs will always be weak spot. Again with second-rate impersonater, this technique utilizes a combination of two-finger jabs (for specific points), four-finger jabs (for larger areas), AND the palm thrusts (for the shear penetrating power). Granted the whole chakra thing is exagerated, but it is still effective. I found that with the combination of the hand forms stated earlier and with some good foot work to confuse your opponent, this style rather hard to beat. These assumption are based on actual testing and not just theory. The human body really has a disturbingly large amount of faults. In the hands of a studied practicer, it could very well be detrimental to the opponent. In any case you did not fight a true user, and to whoever this was I wil scorn for making a mockery of this formidible style. One last thing and it's a bit subject, but does anyone know of any fighting competions near northern Indiana. I would like to test myself in more formal way.
