Fishing in the Dark: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 - pookieh (“Fishing in the Dark” by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band)
Let me just open your mind to an idea. It’s about about using chakra to walk on a vertical surface.
(And eventually dancing and cultural potential of said technique)
Since it was the first technique Kakashi taught team 7 I just brushed it off as pretty easy. Just like meh you learn the technique you got it.
But oh no the technique doesn’t end pass the “grasping” stage. Actually, once you grasp how to do it then comes the actual training.
The technique just sticks the bottom of your feet to a wall…it doesn’t hold you upright. You would have to use all your muscles in your body just to walk up and down a wall.
Imagine the abdominal and back muscles you need to walk down a wall. How you align your shoulders could throw you off balance. Your legs would need just as much conditioning as the rest of your body. Imagine the tension in your ankles holding your entire body at a very odd angle. And then you need to hold onto that tension to walk down/up. If you waver you would probably break your ankles.
That body conditioning isn’t “automatic”. You really would need to practice to build up that sort of physique.
You would need to be in peak physical condition to actually pull off some of these basic techniques. Imagine other ninja admiring the physique of ninja who have mastered this technique. Imagine the contests between ninja to see who can perform and hold the most challenging poses.
Imagine the CULTURAL potential!
Imagine those who take the technique a step further and dance. It would be incredible to see different villages having their own cultural style. Imagine the festivals. Imagine the costumes and masks (because I have a feeling ninja wouldn’t want to be the center of attention at a festival without a costume) Imagine the potential for storytelling fights and village history.
Konoha combines the technique it with a light show to mimic fire. Different lights for different clans, characters, and effects. Imagine the dancing with fiery hoops and twirling fire. Imagine actors actually spitting fire to mimic the Uchiha clan. Crackling black lights for the Aburame clan to mimic bugs. White lights with a deafening BOOM for the Hyuga clan… Acrobatics could be used in place of trees. Just IMAGINE all the music, sounds, and effects around actors dancing around the set. Their diverse clan culture shows in the costumes as well!
Kiri incorporates mist effects (which is very convenient for switching between displays) Their shows are known for the suspense. The crowd can see the outline of monsters moving around in the mist. Characters pop out from the mist and then get grabbed back in. And of course it’s bloody as hell.
Suna is very popular for their colored sands and body paint. Imagine two actors sparring on the ceiling - each shaking off an “aura” of colored sand. Imagine an actor getting sliced with a kunai and red sand flies from the wound. Brightly colored ribbons fly around them as they spin and jump. Imagine each actor covering themselves in something sticky so by the end of the show they’re a walking masterpiece of colors.
Iwa is known for their vivid rocky backdrops. Imagine the stories of finding hidden treasures within caves and exploration. These ninja often have the tallest settings and most breathtaking settings. Ninja scale up the rocks and fight along cliffs. It’s incredible to see their dexterity moving along uneven ground and jagged rocks.
Kumo is known for their incredible display of swordsmanship and weather displays for their plays. Like Iwa they have rocky backdrops but their mastery of swords sets them a part in that respect. They’re amazing at mimicking weather. Imagine the snow and ice they include to decorate their scenes. Scenes can change on the dot bringing in booming thunderstorms or rolling sticky fog. And then they use actual electricity for effects.
Amegakure sets itself a part with it’s towering structures and richly decorated “grafitti”. They’re popular for literal parkour. Characters slide out of setting windows or from sewers below. Some blend into the buildings and are only noticed when they move into action. Imagine the assassination stories they can tell. Imagine the horror of running and ninja are hidden at every possible corner.
Imagine the body conditioning needed to pull off these shows.
JUST IMAGINE HOW GREAT DANCING WITH CHAKRA COULD BE.
Why: Ride this cowboy into the red dawn! It’s no secret that Pat’s doodle does it’s own form of vertical dirty dancing, and his youngblood will grant your three wishes as you ride in his roadhouse. Dirty Darry’s got it covered indeed.
🔇No music on my phone yet so this will have to include sped up sounds.
Made up a combo last night of some things we did because the other things Anna taught had me like 😳
Always fun w pole fam @titojane @missdrusillaray @ashexperience @minastars @annaalvarezpole @faybier (at Jagged Vertical Dance & Fitness)
