Hokage — Fandom

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is sarutobi-hiruzen-quotes-naruto-4.jpg

The Hokage (Literally meaning: Fire Shadow) is the Kage of Konohagakure, a title bestowed on the village’s leader. The Hokage is generally regarded as the strongest shinobi in the land of fire. There have been seven Hokage in the village’s history.

Overview

The Hokage position was created shortly after the creation of Konoha by Hashirama Senju, one of the village’s founders. He intended the title to be given to his co-founder, Madara Uchiha, but the village’s population instead selected Hashirama as the First Hokage. Madara feared that Hashirama’s selection was the first step in making the Hokage office an extension of the Senju clan’s authority, a fear Hashirama denied. Despite this, all of the village’s Hokage have traced back to Hashirama in some way: the Second was his brother; the Third was his student; the Fourth was a student of one of the Third’s students; the Fifth is his granddaughter and another student of the Third; the Sixth was a student of the Fourth; the Seventh is a student of the Sixth and the son of the Fourth.[…]

Pressure Points In Martial Arts — Fighter and Fitness

Pressure Points In Martial Arts

Pressure point is a location on the body where a nerve ends or crosses/intersects with another. Pressure points can be defined as areas of the human body that, when manipulated in a certain way, produce significant pain or other effects. Pressure points are something that cannot be coarsened like the abdomen is coarsened by exercise. Pressure points can be used to harm as well as heal. You can harm a person by hitting or pressing on the pressure points. Pressure points can also be used to heal by doing massage, acupressure or acupuncture. Kyusho Jitsu is a type of martial art based on pressure points. There are 350+ pressure points on the body according to Kyusho Jitsu. But only a percentage of them can be used for self-defence purposes.

The application of pressure point knowledge in combat is known as Varma Adimurai pressure point striking. This can be done either with the empty hand or with a blunt weapon such as a stick or a staff. Pressure points in martial arts are mainly used in Aikido, Krav Maga, Karate, KungFu. Pressure points in martial arts are often used for self-defence because they require less effort. Suppose an attacker grabs your neck, you can easily apply pressure on pressure points like elbow pit, traps, etc. Apart from the pressure points in martial arts here are the types of pressure points.[…]

Martial arts pressure points can help you in self defense, healing, control tactics and first aid. Let’s find details about these pressure points and their importance.

Usually when people come to know that I have a black belt degree in Karate, they ask me about the deadly pressure points. They have a great misconception that people who are into martial arts know how to kill or paralyze people with the help of their amazing pressure point skills. But I want to tell all those people, that, learning martial arts pressure points and then using it on someone, needs a lot of skill and accuracy. And the most important thing is the purpose of using these points. Only some martial arts like Hapkido, Aikido, Jujutsu, Karate, Kyusho Jutsu, and certain styles of Kung Fu include pressure points. There are around 300 human body pressure points but very few are used in martial arts. They are included in the technique itself and the point of attack is made keeping the pressure points in mind. Let’s find more about this.[…]

Six Paths Technique — Fandom

The Six Paths Technique (六道の術, Rikudō no Jutsu) is the origin of the unique techniques bestowed by the Rinnegan. Those who wield the Rinnegan have access to each of these techniques.[2] Despite its name, there are actually seven of these techniques that grant the user powerful and near god-like abilities:[…]

Boruto Connects to Star Wars’ Universe Through the Sith: Theory Explained — Sacred Reincarnation

https://archive.ph/HEs7Z/ad9399d5e1811318574e7e22753183e0b2786039.webp

Similarities between the villains in Boruto and Star Wars hint that the two franchises could be connected, with the Sith influencing Naruto’s world.

[…]The connection between Boruto and Star Wars arises from Isshiki Otsutsuki in Boruto and Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars. The similarities between both characters are too deep to ignore[…]

Isshiki is an alien being who arrived on Earth a long time ago, from a galaxy or dimension far away. The Otsutsuki clan only travel in pairs, and so Isshiki arrived with a subordinate named Kaguya. However, Kaguya betrayed Isshiki and left him for dead. As his life was quickly expiring, a monk named Jigen happened across Isshiki’s body. Before dying completely, Isshiki transferred his essence into Jigen, who became his vessel. However, Jigen’s body was not the most ideal vessel to maintain his essence. Accordingly, Isshiki commanded him to search for and identify a perfectly compatible vessel for Isshiki to subsequently possess.

Isshiki’s story is the mirror image of how Emperor Palpatine cheated death, right down to his ability to project his essence into vessels. Due to the Rule of Two, Sith also only operate in pairs, with the master preying on their apprentice, who usually betrays them in search of power. In both cases, the search for a perfect vessel required organization and experimentation. Through Jigen, Isshiki created the organization known as Kara, which worked to achieve his desires including finding a better vessel than Jigen. Palpatine likewise maneuvered to become Chancellor, then Emperor, to gain the resources he needed to enact his will and maintain his essence.[…]

[…]The similarity of their actions in two fundamentally different stories is so extreme, fans could imagine Isshiki is a Sith who entered the world of Boruto by accident. Given the breadth of Star Wars‘ universe in both space and time, with many unknowns in the depths of space, it could well be that the world of Naruto and later Boruto has had some significant interactions with the Sith, and that Isshiki Otsutsuki is a forebear of Emperor Palpatine himself.

An Introduction to Japanese Mythology Symbolism In ‘Naruto’ — Live Journal

https://i.pinimg.com/736x/0f/58/f5/0f58f54376a5689c786f5c129089cc36.jpg

[…]Much of the mechanisms for the Naruto universe, particularly ninjutsu, are based on Buddhist mythology; Buddhism, along with Shintoism are the key religions in Japan today, in fact many Japanese see no conflict between saying they are both Buddhist and Shinto; their beliefs are not exclusive and both have their role in defining spirituality and explaining the world as it is. A Japanese person, for example, may have a Shinto wedding but a Buddhist funeral.

You can read my own glib, broad brush explanation of Buddhism in Japan for a basic run down of its tenets. If you can’t be bothered know this: Buddhism was an off-shoot of Hinduism, originally from India [Indo-Arya], and therefore much of its mythology is derived from there.  There is more on Shinto later in the ‘Sharingan Jutsus’ section.

Chakra

The main force or power behind ninjutsu is that of Chakra; which is a slightly different from the original Hindu concept of spinning vortices that act as energy focal points within the body, although the meaning can vary depending on the interpretation. The word Chakra in fact mean ‘wheel’ and there are a number of these thought to be located at specific points around the body – most commonly 7 major ones, located along the bodies centreline at the crown, brow, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral (upper pelvis) and base/prostate (lower pelvis). These points could very well also be the influence for the “8 gates” techniques used by Rock Lee and Might Guy, and there are said to be many more minor chakras, which are scattered across the entire body which manifest is Naruto as the many chakra points that are the target for Hyuuga ‘gentle fist’ techniques. 

While the meaning is slightly different, there are many references to swirling or vortex like qualities of chakra within Naruto, both in the formation of a jutsu such as the rasengan and the “mixing” of physical and spiritual energy.

Dragon Ball Z: Fighting and the Philosophy of Battle — Mein Edles Leben

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/de/62/78/de6278ccf786046f6bb1c837759ed25a.jpg

[…]Whenever you’re looking for a good action packed anime series to ramp your adrenaline up to the red zone, there are plenty of series to choose from. After all, finding a shonen with fighting in it is like trying to find a Michael Bay movie with terrible writing-it’s pretty simple. When you think about it, a lot of these fighting series can be placed under two categories: explainers and spectacles.

[…]Dragon Ball Z is very much a spectacle series. Things are given just a few lines of context so the show can move on to the fight. Sure, Dragon Ball Z has its share of signature moves like Goku’s Kamehameha or the Spirit Bomb. But unless your technique is something like Krillin’s Destructo Disc or Majin Buu’s delicious chocolate beam, few thing differ from just a point and blast attack.

[…]Dragon Ball Z is about discovering your limits and then pushing those limits beyond what you thought possible. Even to casual watchers, it’s easy to notice the standard formula. Each new major threat dwarfs the power of the previous villain. Raditz is able to completely dominate both Goku and Piccolo during their fight. He’s only defeated after one final act of desperation and a sacrifice by Goku. The next threat Goku and his friends have to face down is Vegeta who is several times stronger than Raditz. It takes Goku undergoing a long arduous journey through otherworld to earn training from King Kai, overseer of a whole quadrant of the universe, and ten times Earth’s gravity just to stand a chance against the Saiyans. Then next big opponent is Frieza, the tyrannical alien overlord, who could literally kill Vegeta just by staring at him. It isn’t long before Goku has to faces new villains that make Frieza look like…Krillin.

[…]Dragon Ball Z as a show that rewards hard work. It’s almost common knowledge, like lightsabers, or the fact that Snape gave Dumbledore the wizard equivalent of the SAW treatment. That’s why the series doesn’t place importance on the small details of each fight. That’s why a lot more effort actually goes to showing how the characters train and watching them practice in preparation for their next battle. But what often gets overlooked is that all the techniques and physical training don’t cover everything. Pushing your physical limits are only half the lesson. The other half concerns pushing your mental limits. Dragon Ball Z displays this through character transformations. Frieza had his forms. Cell had his perfect form. The most significant transformation is Goku’s change into a Super Saiyan.[…]
