There are three basic types of Jutsu techniques: Ninjutsu, Genjutsu, and
Ninjutsu techniques are often associated with a ninja's elemental affinity
(+news affinity), and constitute the majority of Jutsu techniques known.
All Ninjutsu techniques require Chakra, and - most of the time - hand
seals. To perform Ninjutsu, a ninja releases the energy of the mind and
body (Chakra), and manifests it by means of hand seals. Because of the
extensive combinations of hand seals, there are thousands of potential
Ninjutsu to be discovered. Users can create great fireballs, or clones of
themselves, or spiraling dragons of water, or tag seals which explode on
release. The effects of Ninjutsu are, unlike Genjutsu, entirely real.
Genjutsu techniques are illusionary techniques, and are employed much like
Ninjutsu: with Chakra and hand seals. The primary difference between
Genjutsu and Ninjutsu is that, whilst the effects of Ninjutsu are entirely
real, Genjutsu is illusory. Whereas Ninjutsu and Taijutsu attack the
victim's body, Genjutsu attacks the mind. Genjutsu techniques manipulate
the flow of Chakra into the victim's brain, causing a disruption of their
senses. See +news genjutsu2 for more information on Genjutsu specifics.
Taijutsu are hand-to-hand, or body, techniques. Taijutsu techniques access
the user's Stamina directly, rather than having to convert that Stamina to
Chakra (as with Ninjutsu and Genjutsu). This means that Taijutsu techniques
are often executed much quicker than Ninjutsu or Genjutsu. In some Taijutsu
cases, Chakra is used to enhance the effect of a Taijutsu technique (like
the Hyuga clan's Gentle Fist Style). Taijutsu techniques may also sometimes
use an element (+news element) to enhance the technique.
