Jutsu (術; Literally meaning "skills/techniques") are the mystical arts a ninja will utilize in battle. To use a technique, the ninja will need to use their chakra. To perform a technique, the ninja will bring out and release the two energies of chakra. By forming hand seals, the ninja is able to manifest the desired technique. Because of the extensive number of hand seals and different combinations, there are thousands of potential techniques to be discovered.

The Basics

There are three basic types of techniques: ninjutsu, genjutsu and taijutsu. Subcategories exist, including fūinjutsu, juinjutsu and senjutsu. There are also kekkei genkai abilities which aren't techniques, but inherited abilities passed down through certain clans (however, they can be used as base for certain techniques, such as Haku's Demonic Ice Crystal Mirrors). Kekkei genkai can also be attributed to certain parts of the body, such as dōjutsu.

Without proper control of their chakra, a ninja will produce ineffective or weakened technique which will lead to them running out of chakra early in a fight. To manipulate their chakra more easily, hand seals can be used. With these hand seals, users can control their chakra and technique with higher efficiency. Different techniques require different hand seals.

Ranks

Depending on the difficulty or skill necessary to perform a technique, they are ranked differently. There are six different ranks in techniques:

  • E-rank - Learned by Academy students. Are the basic and most fundamental techniques for all ninja.
  • D-rank - Genin-level techniques. Can be achieved by all genin, though many ninja only learn their "type" of technique.
  • C-rank - Chūnin-level techniques. Sometimes learned by genin who have trained extensively.
  • B-rank - Jōnin-level techniques. Require high levels of chakra to use.
  • A-rank - Kage or jōnin-level techniques. Require great control over one's chakra and may be forbidden.
  • S-rank - Secret, extreme level techniques. Are typically unique to a single user.

Kekkei Genkai, unique abilities and Tailed Beast Skills normally do not have a rank.
