The Eight Trigrams Tenketsu Release, also known as the Gentle Fist Art: Eight Trigrams Tenketsu Release is a technique developed by Hisashi Hyūga, that he later taught to his fellow clansmates. Within the body, there is 361 tenketsu along the Chakra Pathway System, and within them are the legendary Eight Gates. This technique is similar to this, however, the difference is that it uses all of the other tenketsu excluding the Eight Gates.
When the tenketsu are released, the chakra flow within the body is greatly increased and thus the user obtains more power. The amount of power granted, however, is not as great as that of the Eight Gates. The highest amount of tenketsu that can be released is three-hundred and fifty-three, as the other eight are the Eight Gates. Once all three-hundred and fifty-three are unlocked, the user enters a state known as Eight Trigrams Tenketsu Released Formation.
The drawbacks of this technique is that a brief period of exhaustion comes after using it, the level of exhaustion is relative to how many tenketsu are released. If this technique is used repeatedly without rest it can cause permanent damage to the tenketsu preventing the user from ever using chakra again.

- One-Hundred Twenty-Eight Tenketsu Released - The user obtains an even greater increase in their chakra flow, granting them an even larger increase in power.

- Two-Hundred Fifty-Six Tenketsu Released - The user obtains a significant increase in their chakra flow, granting them a massive increase in power. All chakra-based techniques become incredibly simple to use and chakra control is increased to absurd heights. The user obtains a large fiery aura of chakra that emanates from all over their body.
- Three-Hundred Fifty-Three Tenketsu Released/Eight Trigrams Tenketsu Released Formation - The user obtains a drastic increase in their chakra flow, granting them a titanic increase in power. All chakra-based techniques become effortless to use and chakra control skyrockets through the roof. The user obtains a massive fiery aura of intense chakra that emanates from their whole body. The level of power they obtain in this state is comparable to that of the Sixth Gate.
