The Bamboo-Blown Fire (火吹き竹, Hifukidake) is a technique developed by KonohagakureShinobi, and is practiced readily by the likes of Hideaki Kazamidori. It is an Iaidō derivative, that combines Chakra Flow in its principle, but in a slightly different manner. Using one's affinity towards a specific element, the user coats their blade in a thin layer of chakra prior to drawing their blade, and places themselves in a position with bent knees and their wrist circling the hilt of their sword. Upon the opportune moment, the user draws their sword with great speed. This speed increases the friction of the chakra reacting with the oxygen molecules in the air, along with the natural Fire Release chakra causing it to combust. If a user is skilled enough, they are able to form this combustion into a stream of fire that is shown to have prolonged burning against an opponent. Other than that, an instant combustion may be used at close range for a powerful boost to a melee attack.
