Weaving Ninja Hand Seals

Posted by Allen Cerezo | Thursday, February 17, 2011


Recently, I was practicing on how to weave a hand seal. I never thought it would be too difficult. If you are a ninja and you can't weave any hand seal, you cannot perform any jutsu unless you have the Sharingan or the Rinnegan LOL. Aside from throwing shurikens and kunai, weaving a hand seal is the most basic part to learn of being a ninja. So let us start the Hand Seal lesson.

Do these hand seals actually exists? Yes of course. It existed just as sign language is. Hand Seals were used by ninja not to have fire or lightning on their hands but to achieve a feeling or state and to mold their chakra.
