Suiken [Water Fist]
Description: The fighting style of Suiken was created by Genji, Kemuri by studying the fighting styles of other martial arts and blending them into one style that fit her best. The Suiken style is mostly fluid and graceful, acting in concert with the body and chakra energy. As such the Suiken style deals with the flow of energy; letting their defense become their offense, turning their opponents' own forces against them. Even when an attack stance is taken, their moves always appear to flow from one to the other. It is basically linear, and it uses mostly vertical strength and the closed fist, but the movements are so smooth they are impossible to predict. The body is completely relaxed--one might compare it to a coiled snake that is completely relaxed yet ready to strike like lightning in a flash.

The core principle of Suiken is controlling ones body and the chakra within. One could say in comparison that while the Jyuuken style is about assaulting the chakra pathway system, Suiken is about defending it. Suiken training relies on body training, but more than that spiritual training that strengthen one's control over their chakra. Regular practice will smooth the flow of one's chakra. The user does this via four key practices. First one must learn to focus the mind, reflect upon the self and determine the goal. They then must put it into words. After that the user will intensify their will. Last they will put it to action.

Benefit: While fighting in the above described fashion, abilities that predict the user's movements do not function against the user. Additionally, the users chakra is perfectly calm, as if not flowing, but in truth it flows steadily without ripple. This allows the users Spirituality stat to act as a defense stat against attacks that would harm one internally or disrupt and/or harm their chakra system.
Cost: 4

Sort of got the idea for this by mixing Bang from One Punch man, with Waterbending, with a defensive Hyuuga style adaptation. Basically the defensive version of Jyuuken.
