|Shadow of the Dancing Leaf|
|Name||Shadow of the Dancing Leaf|
|Literal English||Shadow of the Dancing Leaf|
|Derived jutsu||Front Lotus|
A technique where one follows the opponent, closely matching his or her body's movement, just like a leaf that dances in the air is followed by its shadow. The technique is usually preceded by a swift upper kick that will launch the target into the air. It is mainly used to position an opponent into a vulnerable aerial position. This move by itself is harmless, but it is usable as a stepping stone for a great many powerful techniques like Front Lotus and the Lion Combo. That being said, it also has a rather high degree of difficulty.
