Re: Whoes the best Taijutsu User?
There is no true answer to this so the OP saying madara is neither correct or incorrect. However the manga has portrayed Gai is an elite taijutsu user.
Madara does indeed seem to have very high taijutsu/kenjutsu skill that is cannon. He is one of the few ninja's who specialises in all forms of ninja art. Gai's main fighting style is taijutsu and has mastered it to a degree beyond madara. In a taijutsu fight they would be roughly equal because madara has shown enough reflex speed to evade base gai. However when gai decides to use Hachimon, madara loses. To put it simple if you compare both, gai is above madara. If you pit them against each other gai is above madara.
I'm however not sure if Gai deserves the title of best taijutsu user like how everybody claims because his taijutsu style Goken, is inferior to;
- Frog katas
- Kimimaro's Shikotsumyaku based taijutsu
Though his taijutsu style is inferior to the above, his skill in this field of taijutsu is is at the highest and has shown to be very good with Nunchaku also.
To be honest i don't believe there is such a thing as best taijutsu user.
Its however between (no particular order):
