Fuinjutsu


Fuinjutsu, also known as Sealing Jutsu, is a classification of Jutsu. Jutsus by which a shinobi can seal a being, an object and chakra within another object or a being are classified as Sealing Jutsus. Fuinjutsu also comes in handy to restrict movements, like when Naruto used Torri to restrict Nine-Tails movements. It can be identified by the presence of certain markings and patterns depending on the Jutsu.


Fuinjutsu requires chakra, and one needs to weave hand signs to use it. Fuinjutsu can be undone with the use of Fuinjutsu Release Techniques, depending on the Fuinjutsu used.

History of Fuinjutsu



Fuinjutsu is arguably one of the few techniques that have been around since ancient times. Hagoromo Otsutsuki and his brother Hamura Otsutsuki were the first individuals who used a sealing technique. Hagoromo and his brother Hamura used the Six Paths - Chibaku Tensei to seal their mother Kaguya Otsutsuki. It is a sealing technique that can only be used by someone who has acquired Six Paths powers. It combines the Yin and Yang powers, creating a strong seal. The Six Paths - Chibaku Tensei was so massive, that it is said that that was how the Naruto World got its moon.

Hashirama Senju is undoubtedly one of the strongest individuals to ever exist in the history of the shinobi world. He was renowned as the God of Shinobi. Hashirama has also showcased mastery in Fuinjutsu with his Sage Art: Gate of Great God. He used this technique against the Ten-Tails in the Fourth Great Ninja War. When he used this technique, giant torii gates pinned down the beast. This Fuinjutsu not only restricts its target’s movements but also nullifies their will to oppose this Jutsu, making them submissive.
