    Re: Bust(er) a ZX

    *Keotsu walks up, holding a special pair of gloves and shoes in his hands. The gloves seem rather unremarkable: white, with metal caps on the knuckles and a circle with an "X" going through it in the palm. The shoes seem to have a metal trim on them.*

    "Alright, so, what do you know about my style of Taijutsu?"

    "Alright, so, what do you know about my style of Taijutsu?"
    Hawke scratches the back of his neck and smiles sheepily at Keotsu. "Eh," he replies uncertainly, "I know ya designed it to use the natural leakage of chakra as a source of energy." The Inuzuka coughs into his fist and relaxes his posure, confident with his reply "but besides using the residue of chakra, ye style's using the special chakra gloves and boots," he pauses momentarily, putting a hand to his lips in concentration. "Oh, yeah!" he exclaims suddenly, "the ZX is the first style to combine the external attacks of the Goken with the internal, chakra-pathway damaging attacks of the Gentle Fist," Hawke suddenly pauses, looking raising an eyebrow in uncertainty. "Ain't that right?" He asks.

    "Indeed it is. Believe it or not, this is the first style I've designed that's focused mainly on overwhelming offense, rather than being focused on defensive buffs. Just as Nagashi is the bane of a close combat practitioner, things like Iron Skin can put a real damper on the Taijutsu user's day. However, by bypassing that armor, you can hit the enemy where it really hurts: their deep tissue and organs. Punch someone above their heart with this style...and that's it.

    This is a sword for which there is no armor. In so far as my own knowledge, the only way to effectively combat ZX Buster with Taijutsu, is to be a practitioner of it yourself.

    *Keotsu took a moment to pause, collecting his thoughts. Even having created the style, he had to admit - much of it was a mystery, even to him.*

    "...To know this style, is to know me. I believe highly in efficiency, and this style shows it. It concerns itself with the conservation of chakra, and using every last ounce of it to the maximum effect. If you truly examine how this style should work...you understand my mindset of battle.

    Truth be known, if my research into the core aspects of the style go as I hope, it will make "Medical Fist" obsolete, while also being an amazing compliment to it. For, imagine. If your blows can already crush stone physically, and then are accompanied by a spiritual blow that can do the same, your destructive power is already far superior to that of a Medical Ninja. But...when you expand that spiritual aspect from the 1:1 ratio, to, say, something like 1:3....

    We begin to talk about sums of force that are truly frightening, especially when they can be released with the slightest touch.

    There lies a power in balance that is often overlooked. If you've ever heard of the infamous Dr. Stein, and know of how his style of close combat functions, then you should have a...similar understanding as to how this style can become explosively powerful."

    *Keotsu, having finished his speech, hands Hawke both the boots and gloves.*

    "If you are ready, I suppose I'll begin teaching you how to actually use it."

    "If you are ready, I suppose I'll begin teaching you how to actually use it."
    "Hell," Hawke mumbles quietly, accepting the gloves and boots from Keotsu "and here I thought I could do some damage..." The Inuzuka shakes his head slowly and quickly puts both gloves and boots on. Surprisingly, the metallic exterior of the equipment doesn't extend to the interior, so both gloves and boots are pleasant to wear. Nodding in approval, Hawke flexes his fingers to get a feel of the fabric's flexibility. "Keotsu-san," he comments approvingly, "these gloves are pretty nice." The Inuzuka looks up to meet his teacher's eyes, "who made 'em?" he asks curiously.

The Inuzuka looks up to meet his teacher's eyes, "who made 'em?" he asks curiously.
    *Keotsu lets out a half-hearted laugh with a somber smile when Hawke comments about the style, as he accepts the boots and gloves, and then proceeds to ask where the apparel came from.*

    "There's a young woman named Yuuki back in my hometown, back in the Land of Autumn. She's an amazing seamstress, and can fashion clothes and shoes of all types. I go to her whenever I need anything that's not flat-out armor made. She's not cheap, I'll warn you, but you won't find anyone who puts more pride into their work, and who does such a fantastic job."

    *As if to accentuate this, Keotsu momentarily tugs on his shirt.*

    "...and if you absolutely need armor...She's once made a shirt out of a spider-silk like material for me, and it worked better than any jacket of chain-mail I've ever seen. Unfortunately, that beautiful shirt was destroyed when...Never mind, I've said to much.

    "Anyway, I will tell you this up front: as you become more and more proficient with the style - to the point of mastery - you will find yourself relying on the gloves less and less. However, the boots, you will find yourself always in need of, and there are two simple reasons for this: first, we manipulate chakra more with our hands - handseals - than we do with our feet; and second, there is simply a lower concentration of chakra points in your feet than in your hands.

    "The ZX Buster style works much like a river. When a certain amount of water starts to flow in a certain direction, it will start dragging more water with it.

    "Since most of us have massive chakra reserves, it tends to leak out, just as how water evaporates. But, by directing your chakra flow - the flow of the river - in one direction, you can pull that "leaking" chakra along, increasing the amount of chakra, and thus force, behind your blows.

    "And by gathering a "wave" of chakra, of water, when you release it, the amount that it too drags increases. I'll give a basic demonstration."

    *Keotsu then fastens a rather basic leather gantlet to his right hand - its more for the protection of his hand, then to assist him with the style.*

    "This is without me using Zero Knuckle...ah, sorry, that's another term for the style, just as is X Fist."

    *Keotsu then quickly punches a large boulder with his full might. And impressive "thump" is heard as his fist collides with the stone, and the rock stands resolute against the force. It was evident that a person would have several badly broken ribs from a blow like that.*

    "And this, is with the style."

    *Pulling his fist back, Keotsu's eyes close slightly, as his concentration sharpens. With a quick, and powerful, thrust of his hand, he once again slams his fist into the boulder, this time the sound being noticeably louder, like the bang of a hammer, and with a circular "pulse" of chakra coming off of his fist, visualizing the discharge.

    Flailing his hand to move away the smarting, even through the protective gauntlet, it was still incredibly painful punching stone with everything you had.*

    "This was a basic demonstration - the first punch was what a 1:0 ratio of force to chakra was - your standard Taijutsu. The second was your 1:1, or the simplest level of ZX Buster.

    As the ratio increases, you end up - basically - hitting more times in a single instance than before. The basic is two blows, a 1:2 ratio is three blows, ad infinitum.

    ...I'm not quite sure what the limits of this are, even though I created the style. I have no idea what we can get away with, but, I suppose that'll all be straighten out in time.

    For now, how about a quick spar? I'll play solely defensive - just try to get the hand of the style, and focus on what I told you about how to use it in the first place, along with what you already know.

    I suppose with someone like you, you should be able to get it down in five minutes."

    *Keotsu then takes a very basic stance, with his legs shoulder-length apart, and with his left hand leading, both palms open, facing his opponent.*

    "Whenever you are ready."

    (OOC: We'll spar for five posts. And, like I said, I have no idea what we can get away with in freeform (1:X). I'm going to assume that 1:5 is the max of unaided, but I'm not sure, and really, it is strictly up to the practitioner. You could make a flick of your finger shatter stone. I'll need to talk to Scorps about it, though. Walking around, blowing holes in people with flick of your wrist seems a little unbalanced, even if it is strictly within the limits and confines of the style itself.)

    Hawke blinks rapidly at the show of strength - this was a bit more than he'd bargained for.
    "Hell, Keotsu-san, that 1-to-5 one almost sounds better than Natural Energy. I've smashed boulders before, but not without some serious preparations."
    The Inuzuka shakes his head and assumes a stance very similar to Keotsu's, just with his right leg positioned further ahead. Leaning forwards, Hawke sets off with his right leg, disappearing in a blur of motion and racing towards the other Shinobi. As he enters short range, Hawke suddenly sets off to the right with his left foot, changing his trajectory to moving diagonally past his target, ending up appearing directly to Keotsu's left. Immediately, Hawke rears his gloved right hand backwards, attempting to gather the 'leaking' chakra around him in the same manner he does when using Frog Kata. Hoping for the best, the Inuzuka punches forwards, aiming for Keotsu's left shoulder.

    (OOC AGAIN: Okay, so, got a final word on the freeform of the style:

    1. ZX Buster user's blows in freeform do 2x damage, all the time. However, like regular Taijutsu, that doesn't mean it's fatal. We do, however, have a distinct advantage due to the piercing nature of the style.

    2. Ranged Taijutsu "shots" can be used in freeform, and have the power of only the chakra burst, meaning they're just as powerful as the punch unaided. They can reach up to short range away.

    3. Abides all other "rules" concerning freeform and technique interaction.

    There will be techniques to come, so don't worry. It may just take me awhile ot get around to them. )


    "Well, like I said, it's simply a theory, and it will require more study on my part..."

    *As Hawke zooms to Keotsu, and begins to attack, Keotsu preforms a very basic action: using his right arm, he sweeps outwards while also stepping towards his left, and rotating his body ninety degrees clockwise from his perspective, putting Hawke clearly in the center of his frame, and with Keotsu in the same stance he had been in before, having chosen to simply deflect Hawke's move.

    Rather than attacking, Keotsu is closely observing how Hawke is managing with the chakra discharge; as their was no visible discharge this time, he knows it will be best to let Hawke build up his momentum, so that he can more easily learn how the flow and momentum interact.*

    As his momentum's redirected, Hawke simply lets his momentum carry him into a forwards breakfall and twists his body during the roll to bring him 180 degrees around as he gets up again. Now facing Keotsu once more, Hawke dashes forwards in a beeline, raising his left hand threateningly. As he gets into range, however, the Inuzuka takes a quick half-step forwards with his right leg and whips his right arm forwards instead of his left, sending an unexpected haymaker zooming towards the bottom of Keotsus chin, aiming to send the Kenjutsu Master flying.
    As his body moves fluidly into the half-step, Hawke attempts to gather the leaking chakra around him, visualizing it as building dams around the ocean and simply pushing it forwards as he delivers the punch.

    *Keotsu smiles, as Hawke approaches, deciding to try a little tactic, simply because he's having fun - when Hawke comes in, Keotsu (without using ZX Buster), quickly raises his right fist, intending to smash his own fist into Hawke's; however, as Hawke's left hand was merely a feint, when Keotsu throws his fist forward, it meets no resistance as it flies forward towards the trainee's face.

    However, Keotsu ends up taking the blow to the jaw, as he was unable to move his left hand to deflect the blow in time - it was definitely a noteworthy blow on it's own, but Keotsu could tell that a normal blow wouldn't have that kind of force. Hawke was starting to catch on, but still had a bit more to go...

    Moving with the blows momentum, Keotsu quickly leaps backwards, while rubbing his chin, working out the smarting pain as he motions for Hawke to continue.*

    "Wish I had that kind of arm on me..."

    Surprised with his hit, Hawke barely registers the incoming fist before it collides with his nose. Mirroring Keotsu's movement, the Inuzuka leaps backwards with the blow's momentum, rubbing his sore nose and whiping a few drops of blood away with his sleeve.
    Quickly recovering, the Inuzuka dashes directly towards Keotsu. As Hawke gets close to Keotsu (still out of reach), he takes another half-step forward with his right foot, this time simply leaning forwards while 'pushing' both his palms forward in a dual palm-thrust aimed at his teacher's midsection, but it's out of reach and unable to connect. Instead of going for a physical hit, Hawke attempts to push enough leaking chakra forwards so that it might generate its own pressure.

    Quickly recovering, the Inuzuka dashes directly towards Keotsu. As Hawke gets close to Keotsu (still out of reach), he takes another half-step forward with his right foot, this time simply leaning forwards while 'pushing' both his palms forward in a dual palm-thrust aimed at his teacher's midsection, but it's out of reach and unable to connect. Instead of going for a physical hit, Hawke attempts to push enough leaking chakra forwards so that it might generate its own pressure.
    *With distance between the two warriors again, Keotsu resumes his stance - with Hawke, however, rushing in, Keotsu simply waits, aiming to continue observing, and countering. When Hawke suddenly thrusts his arms forward, to far away to make physical contact, Keotsu reacts quickly, doing the same, and simply locking his elbows, causing energy bursts of his own to fire out. While not as strong as Hawke's own momentum fueled blast, they are substantial enough to soften the blow.

    Tanking the blow, Keotsu breaks posture and holds up a single hand, signifying the end of the spar. With a visible wave like that, Hawke had enough of a handle on what he needed to use the style.*

    "Very nicely done. And excellent use of the ranged aspect of the style. That's something that is going to make you a nightmare when fighting others.

    But, alas, it seems I have but one more thing to teach you. Hienkyakyu - Flying Swallow Feet.

    (ZX Basutā: Hienkyaku) ZX Buster: Flying Swallow Feet
    Rank: B
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: Short to Mid
    Chakra Cost: 20
    Damage: N/A
    Description: A movement based technique, Flying Swallow Feet works by focusing chakra into the soles of the user’s feet, super-charging the chakra-metal present in their shoes. Since there is less of the chakra pathway focused in the user’s feet than other locations on the body, this helps the chakra metal amplify any chakra passed through it that’s used for the ZX Buster style. More specifically, Flying Swallow Feet allows bursts of chakra to be fired from the user’s feet that can be used to accelerate short distances (known as “dashing”). Dashing can be done either in the air or on the ground and helps as it allows the user to put more momentum behind their strikes. When dashing, a visible burst of chakra is seen from the user’s feet, and they tend to have an “afterimage”; this comes about simply a trick of the eye, and is nothing special. As the chakra metal will retain its “super-charge,” and once activated, this technique does not deactivate. The user, although moving in a fast pace/burst of speed is still trackable by normal eyesight.


    A very simple technique, but extremely useful in dodging things. When running, you'll focus chakra into the chakra metal of your boots, causing them to become overcharged - they should also remain in this state for a very long while; you'll never have to activate this technique more than once per battle, unless something happens to your shoes.

    What this overcharge does, is amplify any chakra you push out of your feet. Because of this, you can fire off massive chakra bursts at virtually no cost to yourself. This also means that you now have a way to quickly move about, and even change direction in the air. Technically, you could use this jutsu as a form of psuedo-flight.

    The bursts themselves are freeform, and allow you dodge certain techniques, all at a paltry chakra cost to you, of charging the shoes themselves. Its a fantastic technique with amazing long-term pay out, and so, if you intend to use it, I recommend you do so early in a battle.

    And, ultimately, it has the obvious advantage of making you move faster. Moving faster equals more momentum, which equals more force, which equals a bigger discharge from ZX Buster techniques and freeform. Which, equates to an even larger increase in damage output."

    Hawke nods approvingly at Keotsu's explanation, trying to wrap his head around the unimaginable potential of the technique. Freeform, dashing, short-ranged chakra-bursts, organ-crushing hits. The Inuzuka shudders at the prospect of taking such a hit.
    Turning his focus to the technique, Hawke simply pushes a small, even stream of chakra through the soles of the metal-boots and draws a small amount of excess chakra downwards in an attempt to create a more stable wave of pressure. The theory behind it all seems easy as pie; it shouldn't be a problem to turn practical.

    *Keotsu waited, as he sensed Hawke meditating, attempting to preform the technique. After a moment, he spoke.*

    "I think it'll be easy enough to try. Take off sprinting in one direction, and push chakra through your feet like you would do normally. If you overcharged the metal, the rest will be natural, and the chakra burst will naturally amplify, and you'll find yourself moving extremely quickly - so much so, that you'll appear to leave streaks through the air. And if you manage this, then I've taught you all I really can..."

    Nodding once, the Inuzuka simply leans backwards in preparation and then throws himself forwards in a mighty leap. As he reaches his peak, Hawke pushes an ample amount of chakra through the boots in a burst, trying to establish a buoyancy. Leaning forwards again, the Inuzuka pushes another, larger burst of chakra through the boots, attempting to create the fabled dash and afterimage-effect.

    *Keotsu watched, and smiled lightly as a blue flame formed beneath Hawke's feet, causing him to accelerate and sending him forward at high speeds - successfully preforming the simple, but useful, technique.*

    "Well...that's all I have of the ZX Buster to teach you. I believe you will, but I'll say it anyway. Use it wisely."
