"No, I don't mean like what percent, I mean like how much total."

"I have several hundreds times the amount of chakra a civilian would on average, but it's hard to measure - chakra amounts ebb and flow, and don't really have - units? A medic who specializes in this might have a better idea?"

"Fair...I don't know, then. Maybe it's just that you're a kid, Tetsuma, I'm pretty sure my brother wasn't anywhere near as strong when he was a kid as when I split off from him. Anyway, practice can only help, why don't you try and I'll see if I can find any problems."

"I have lots of chakra," he says. "I can do that, but even taijutsu people use some chakra with stuff."

Permalink

"Taijutsu as opposed to...what, specifically?"

Permalink

"Taijutsu is bodily techniques, like martial arts forms and how to channel chakra to improve your muscles and the Eight Gates."

Permalink

"I dunno what the Eight Gates are but other than that that sounds pretty much like everything I do...I guess aside from some of the ki techniques."

Permalink

"The Eight Gates are a sort of mental or spirital limit on what you can do physically," Yamato supplies after Tetsuma seems stumped. "Opening them damages your body but allows you to move faster, be stronger."

Permalink

"...I've never heard of anything like that."

Permalink

"Might not exist in your people? I'm not sure if we've done a full medical comparison yet..."

Permalink

"Maybe...but the Soul of Ice seemed to work for you, at least a bit, so even if that's true it's not like my techniques are totally unteachable, at least."

Permalink

"I'd be sad if they were."

"I'm sure we'll figure something out. Starting with jumping practice!"

Permalink

"Jumping's fun!"

Permalink

"Wanna see how high I can jump with chakra?"

Permalink

Time to jump!

He leaves a (tiny) crater in the ground and easily clears fifty feet, laughing as he angles to land in the tree-top.

Permalink

"Huh! Might wanna work on your takeoff, but that's good!"

Permalink

"Some people can jump lots and lots higher, I haven't been doing this long."

Permalink

"Oh, definitely. I didn't mean to suggest otherwise."

Permalink

"How high can you jump? I heard the original Hashirama could go over mountains!"

"It'd have to be a pretty small mountain, but..." she focuses for a moment, then jumps into the tree, one of the bendier branches creaking with the force she applies to it, then springs upwards again as she jumps, adding the spring force of the wood to the force her own chi-infused legs put into the jump, shooting into the air. 

She doesn't go high enough to lose visibility, but at the very top of her arc you could have mistaken the odd blue and red smudge she makes for some kind of escaped kite. 

On her descent, she reaches out to grab the tree branch again, bleeding off her kinetic energy as she arcs around the branch before dropping lightly to the ground.

He laughs. "That was so cool!"

Permalink

"Thanks!" she says, bowing theatrically.
