Shoten No Jutsu

Shoten no jutsu is a set of martial arts skills where one runs up a vertical or semi-vertical surface without any aid or climbing tools.

This training is found in our ukemi training and is part of our taijutsu body changing skills.

One of the key elements- especially before one gets really high up and vertical is the ability to take ukemi and land- a forward, side, or back roll as needed.

There is also an awareness inherent in shoten no jutsu- just how high are you- can you take ukemi? Does your present ukemi ability allow you to land and roll?

Points to work on and consider in solo practice.
