Any idea what frog katas are? And i wonder what type of sage techniques he has learned...He should be able to summon any frog like jiraiya and use some of the same techniques. cant wait to see naruto use something besides kage bunshin. so anybody know what frog katas are?
It's the Frog's fighting style.
its just an assumption but, katas are the hand signs that are used to initiate techniques so my best guess is that they are a form of seals that are used in the using of frog techniques
katas are sequences of moves, blocks, punches, kicks, etc..., which are used in a fight. katas do exist in the real world, ask any karate player. i know this because my brother has a 1st dan black belt. nothing to do with hand signs. so they r probably the sequences of fighting moves used in the frogs fighting style
Afro thunda has it right. This "Frog kata" translation refers "Kawazu kumite" (frog combat, also translated to "frog fu" before). It's not the hand seals, but the fighting style itself.
katas are passed down by martial artists generation to genarations most martial arts have katas
The base definiton for Kata (型 or 形, literally: "form"?) is a Japanese word describing detailed choreographed patterns of movements practiced either solo or in pairs.
Straight from wiki.
If you want to know something just Google it...
Thing is, the Japanese word "kata" is never used in the manga. What was used is "kumite"(lit. sparring/fighting/combat). Kishi was referring to the combat style rather than any move ("karate" itself as opposed to any of its "kata").
Fukasaku meant fighting style. Like taijutsu.
Jiraiya > Uchiha
This manga is starting to get better and better.
Awesome, just awesome
