(Hijutsu: Ningen no Rikigaku Ichi-ji keishiki) - Secret Technique: The art of Human Mechanics Primary Form
Chakra cost: 30
Damage points: N/A (+15 through power increase)
Description: This technique uses the knowledge of the human body and its hidden mechanics, the joints. By understanding the mechanics of the joints one can use them in various ways to increase performance in battle. The user can increase the power of their physical techniques by using maximum joint movement to deliver great power but at the cost of this the speed isnt particulary great as it takes longer to move a joint fully. The user can increase the speed of motion by short joint movements and thus the increase in speed is increased three times faster than the technique used standardly without the knowledge of such performance this can also be done with the use of multiple joints. For example using the Shoulder joint, the elbow joint and the knee joint one can increase the speed of a swung sword greatly compared to using the single joint fully where they raise their arm completely and bring the arm back down. When the user of this technique fully uses all his joints in his body simultaniously they can increase their speed to the point as fast as rock lee without weights however the reaction of the user depends on the ranking and their mastery of taijutsu.

Background Info. History:
Izanami Kaito was from the Yakuza Clan and from a younge age interested in swords and weapons. A unhealthy interest according to her parents. She was orphaned at at 4 when her parents were killed in a skirmish against a group of rouge ninja who sought to cause trouble between the neighbouring nations and the land of iron. She was then taken in by the legendary samurai Mitsunari Zenryoku whos skill was world class. Though not in the culture of samurai females were usually not permitted to learn the way of the warrior but Izanami Kaito did not take to the way of the women but continued her interest into the sword and battle. She took interest in Zenryoku who would become more known as masters famed sword Sakura no Ki. She would at night sneak into the display room where his armor and equipment were displayed and practice with using the sword. When eventually her adoptive father caught her sneaking to the room and followed her secretly and watched her practice with the sword. At that Moment he had made his choice to train her in the way of the sword as he could not stop her from practising.
As she started to grow up and mature she began to learn and master the arts of Kenjutsu, Taijutsu and weapons very quickly impressing her Adoptive father with her considerable growth. So much so that she began to be noticed by the leading body of samurai and requested that she be trained to enter the military of the land of iron. With this invitation Kaito began to put even more practise and commitment into her skills to better herself. When she reached the age of 15 she was of a skill level that she was allowed to be drafted into the military force. It was then when Zenryoku had then had her given training by a old friend of his who was not of the land of iron but a ninja of renowed fame and respect that befriended the land of iron. His name was Goro Kaguya a member of the Kaguya clan whos taijutsu skills were feared throughout the land. Izanami Kaitos level of taijutsu was of a standard greater than normal in the land of iron considering the samurai mainly focused on swordsmenship but hers was greater. He would then instruct her further in the development of her taijutsu skills and building up her strength, stamina, dexterity and brutalitly. He spend many months guiding the young samurai apprentice instructing and beating into her every ounce of knowledge in the art as he could. After a couple of years of training Goro Kaguya had become satisfied with the level of physical skill that Izanami kaito displayed with taijutsu and finally decided it was time that she left his tutorlage. He then told her before he left to seek old his friend another infamously famous shinobi of the uchiha clan Bianca. A ninja who was famous for her increadible skill in the sharingan and famous for her deadily Arts of Acid and Glass elements. She would train Izanami kaito in similar respects to those of the uchiha clan, by training her how to react to a further scale than that she already had. This training gained some progress through a couple of months. This helped to improve her already good reactional capabilities from her years of training with the sword and weapons and small levels of taijutsu, then further taijutsu training from Goro Kaguya. However the training was short lived when suddenly Biance had left Kaito during one night without a word. Kaito went looking for her when she woke the next day and came across a village that was ravaged by battle. The village was in utter chaos. She could see the aftermath of her sensei's techniques, melted buildings and wholes in the ground, shards of glass protruding from the ground and glass scultpures. She came across a village elder who had informed her that a great battle underwent between Bianca Uchiha and Nexus but Bianca was gravely injured and to prevent Nexus from killing her further and taking away her corpse she used a destruction techniqiue that utilized her acid release to completely erase her presence and thus Kaito was left to return back to the Land of Iron.
During her return to the Land of iron he came across yet another uchiha who stopped infront of Kaito in the middle of the road. Eyes glaring at her and she said to kaito that she knew of her affiliation to the deceased Bianca and that she must die and so she came at Kaito with her full power. The battle went on for hours with kaito barely managing to stay alive due to rei's expert skills and her sharingan allowing to track Kaito's movements and attacks despite the level of skill she possessed. Rei suddenly ended the battle standing there for a moment smiling as she licked some blood off her check where Kaito managed to get a Iaido attack on her but only scratch her. Rei then said that she was rather impressed she had been unable to kill Kaito after a long battle and so she decided to take Kaito under her wing. In the year to come Rei would teach Kaito further development of reactions and battle awareness which would bring her skill level to an even greater degree. She hammered as much information that she could with the regards of the training as the training is more based around the sharingan. When she was happy about the level of training and skill that Kaito had achieved she then left her company parting as very good friends.
After many a year away she had finally returned back to the Land of iron and back to the military. Zenryoku was pleased with her training and decided that it would be time that she attained the rank of captain within the army due to her great battle prowess and skills. Also with the seat of power she would inherit the sword she loved to play with as a child his own family lineage Sakura no Ki. In the comming months she would begin gaining great stature amongst many of the elites of the land of iron and even amongst many ninja both those who were at peace with the land of iron or those who sought to attack them.
With the great knowledge she had attained in her younger years she would come to develop her own unique style of taijutsu which gave birth to many techniques that would themselves become famous and give greater stature to her name. Such techniques included the Sixth Sense a technique that enhanced ones reactions, speed and their mind itself a technique that displayed mastership of martial arts and Half step a tricky manouver that involved the mastery of short movements to dodge opponents attacks but at critical moments requiring great timing and perception of ones opponents. The latter giving Kaito the nickname of Half step Kaito.
With the development of the Taijutsu style kaito would come to train many famous ninja such as Caliburn one of the worlds strongest swordsmen, who in return for the training taught him some of his kenjutsu and one particular technique that would be awakened by caliburn through the awakening of the sixth sense. Another the Straw hat Kaguya Mugi a fierce warrior of the Kaguya clan. Many others include Akiza the black rose, hellsbadass the sexaholic of Kirigakure, Kirabi and many samurai such as Alucard and Raiden.
As Kaito Gained further fame she also gained ranking in the military of the Land of Iron eventually attaining the Rank Shogun. She would then come to choose her own captains who she grew up with in the military ranks, Alucard, Keotsu Eclispe , Raiden, Scary Yamato and many more. She would also come to take a student who she instructed every ounce of knowledge that she had learned from all her sensei's and own battles. That Student is Urumi who was better known to kaito and close friends as Zerabitu who in the eyes of Kaito proved to be a very skilled and promising samurai.

The cloth has the properties to have chakra channelled into them allowing the user to freely control it and encourpourate it within their fighting.

Description: Izanami Kaito will perform a unique dance with her cloth and using chakra channelled into it causes the patterns on the cloth itself to move. The dance will simply be like a flowing river with the cloth being waved in ellegant ways that draws the targets attention away from the user and onto the pattern in a form of optical illusion and thus causes the targets gaurd to be let down and open for attack.
Third Dance:- A rank Range: Short - Long
Description: Izanami Kaito will channel her chakra into the cloth and then through a unique dance manouver the cloth in unusual patterns swaying around like a willow tree being blown in the wind.

Fourth Dance:- S Rank Range: Short
Description: The Forth and final Dance where by channeling chakra throughout the entire cloth Iznamai Kaito then performs a dance that flows the cloth around her entire body creating a spinning barrier and leaves a small gap that is large enough to see the enemy but small enough to not become a problem. the barrier of chakra infused cloth protects from incoming attacks equal to S rank and below.
