The Gentle Fist style of fighting.

A "fighting style" is the characteristic ability upon which most or even all of a shinobi's jutsu are based. In the case of taijutsu users, their fighting style dictates their stance in combat and how they strike their opponents; examples include the Strong Fist and Gentle Fist. In the case of ninjutsu users, their fighting style is a cornerstone to all their tactics and by which they are most easily identified; examples include Sai's Super Beast Imitating Drawing and Konan's Dance of the Shikigami. Ninjutsu users' fighting styles may alternatively be defined by what tool or resource they most commonly employ rather than a single ability; examples include Gaara's sand or the Inuzuka clan's ninken partners.
