Default Why do Ninjas Need to Weave Handsigns to Use Jutsus?

I was sitting in Philosophy class in the morning when I though about this question.

So why does a Shinobi need to make hand signs to activate/use a jutsu?
Is it because when one makes hand signs, they are able to gather the needed chakra then perform a jutsu?

What are your guy's thoughts?

Default Re: Why do Ninjas Need to Weave Handsigns to Use Jutsus?

The exact amount of chakar necessary to perform a technique is manipulated through hand seals

hand seals make it easier to use jutsu and hand signs tell what kind of jutsu it is.

Plus jutsu's make them look cool.

Hand seals help to control chakra and get ready for the attack

hand seals
1) mold chakra
2) help the ninja use less chakra with hand signs
3) looks cool and you can act like a ninja and do crazy hand signs
4) Catorgorizes what type of jutsu it is

Yeah, i guess you could say the science behind it would be like a physiological response. akin to smiling to trick yourself into being happy. your body knows how you feel when those particular muscles are engaged, so it will tend to act a certain way. The hand seals are physiological actions that tell the brain which energies to start molding in which types of ways to produce the framework for the end result. remember, after the hand seals comes lots of chakra control. Many jutsu have many seals and repeat seals many times. think of it as a formula to energy cultivation that is accessed through a physiological response.

...wow...im proud of that ^

I agree with that, very good answer! But personally, I also think of it being like a circuit. You have to shape the chakra, but you also have to give it a medium for it to flow between, being your hands. It has to be focused somewhere, yes? It's kind of hard to explain, but think of it like an electrical current, I suppose haha.

I was thinking about this too and came up with a solution from watching guy in an episode. I beleive it is similar to opening the gates, in order for your chakra to flow into a different form you need to make a path or a connection. I'm not sure but my best bet is it is similar to the 8 inner gates, just much less extreme.

Some jutsus don't need hand signs.

Neji
Shino
Kiba
Kimimaru
Puppet

To name a few.

What you lookin at? You all a bunch of bleep. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your bleep fingers and say, "That's the bad guy" So what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy!

Ino and Kiba use hand signs and the other ones use chakra form which does not make it necessary to make a different substance out of the chakra.

Some of Kiba jutsus use a pose, not a hand sign, same with Neji.

It's to help shape and focus the chakra. There are specific poses to aid this process too (like when Kakashi focuses Raikiri)

When a handsign [or pose] is formed, a pathway is created that unlocks a specific type of energy.

It seems like the more proficient you become with a jutsu, the easier it will become to form it and thus you can skip the handsign process (ex: Naruto's Rasengan, Sasuke's Chidori Nagashi, Kankuro's puppet strings etc.)

This may depend on the type/element of the jutsu...It seems like all forms of sealing Jutsu need handsigns in order to function.

Naruto a rasengan never needed hand signs, it was solely chakra form so it didn't need to change into something else just like kankuro. If it was actually a jutsu then shino's insects couldn't have eaten it.
