The Izuna is an unblockable sword technique that was mastered by Isurugi Raijuta.

Dynamics[]

The Izuna is a technique that creates a vacuum between two layers of air while the user swings their sword. While using a shinai, the user is able to snap other shinai and leave a slash-like indentation on the floor at the same time. It is also speculated that the technique is powerful enough to snap even diamond if the user uses a real sword.

The Izuna has a more advanced technique, which the user is able to launch a wind-blade capable of causing immediate amputation if not dodged. When this technique is fully mastered, the user is able to send multiple flying slashes at once.

Derivative Techniques[]

  • Matoi Izuna - A regular swing within the Izuna technique. The user swings his sword so fast that it creates a vacuum around the sword and causes that vanishing of the blade like a summer mirage.
  • Tobi Izuna - A flying slash within the Izuna technique. The user swings his sword and launches a vacuum slash that can't be blocked. Raijuta has mastered this technique enough to launch multiple slash at once.

Users[]

The Izuna was mastered by Isurugi Raijuta, who was able to master it in 10 years after researching it from ancient scrolls.

Trivia[]

  • The Izuna has also been called the Kama Itachi, both of with are named from the spirit of the wind.
