Hoshigaki Style Taijutsu is a Chakra Taijutsu and Chakra Kenjutsu style that incorporates the inherent sensory and marine capabilities of the Hoshigaki Clan together with hand to hand combat and weapons techniques. It is mostly used for aquatic combat, utilizing a Hoshigaki's enhanced swimming capabilities and breath holding capacity. However, it can also be used on land, though with lesser mobility and some skills simply being unapplicable, such as a high-speed swimming ram. On land, swords and simple hand-held weapons, even primitive bone knives, may be used to make up for this decreased maneuvering by making the hits count for more when they land. A Hoshigaki can propel themselves through the water without Chakra simply via powerful swimming abilities, but when Chakra is added via this style their speed and maneuvering become far beyond a normal ninja's.
Unique TF lines based on the types of fish one resembles may be apped that allow for combining with this style, but at its base, it is centered around using the human form in aquatic combat and/or to weaken foes, keep them off-balance, dazing and trapping them, before finally moving in for the kill. Sharks strike when they sense their prey is vulnerable. Land-bound creatures are rarely as strong in the water as they are on land, but on land, weak points, gaps in defenses, and physically or mentally wearing away at the target to create an opening is necessary for the 'Shark-Nin Clan' to properly exploit the fighting skills of this style. A blade on land is as useful as an underwater barrage of blows in achieving such.
