|Heart Ripping Technique|
|Rōmaji||Shinzōzak no Jutsu|
|Literal English||Heart Ripping Technique|
The Heart Ripping Technique is by far one of the most brutal taijutsu techniques in existence. In one way or another, the user of this technique grabs hold of their opponent's heart and proceeds to rip it out of their chest, killing them almost instantly. How one grabs hold of another's heart is dependent on the user, with the most common technique being to simply punch or jab the victim so hard in the chest that the user can simply grab their opponent's heart and rip it out. However, the user should be careful not to injure their own hands on their victim's ribcage, as the bones could break or cut the their hand, or the ribs could even trap their arm, allowing their opponent to counter-attack in time to send them both off.
Due to the brutal and inhumane nature of this technique, as well as the dangers to the user themselves, this technique is technically classified as a Kinjutsu (Forbidden Technique). However, there are no legal consequences for using this technique; one might simply be looked down upon as unnecessarily savage-like and dishonorable.
