Inyougokon No Jutsu


The Art of Yin and Yang

The ultimate technique of the Yugen Shinkage Ryu though Nadashinkage-ryu also proclaims it as its own. 


Inyougokon No Jutsu is a Shadow technique that is said  to be able to defeat the opponent with their own power. It is based on the Art of War’s “Go No Sen” which means to react to an attack before it actually happens. The true strength of the Yugen Shinkage Ryu involves reading opponent’s rhythm. Knowing your opponent’s rhythm is like being able to read their mind. The opponents unknowingly give away there location, targets, attacks and every thought that comes to there mind allowing you to make a perfect counter attack.

The Art of Yin and Yang takes this a step further by linking rhythms and capturing opponent’s flow it is like user has become their shadow Their “senses” are linked, their “breathing is linked, all is synched through their consciousness. It’s a pure connection of their heart and soul.. Once this level of connection is achieved user is able to reflect the enemy back at themselves linking their pain to the opponent. Thus by hurting user opponent is hurting themselves.

Inyougokon No Jutsu requires user to maintain a calm mind and heart as they establish contact with opponent. As they are essentially forced to nothing against opponents assault as they project their own shadow, their own strength, their own doubts, their own fears on to them. But due to this that doubt and hesitation will fill the opponent’s fists. By becoming opponent’s shadow, user gets the spirit to keep standing up and keep facing them. The only rule is that their heart doesn’t break before they reach their goal. For if they do capturing opponent’s shadow is impossible.
