LIMITATIONS AND USES OF THE TETTSUI OR HAMMERFIST

Ninja Scroll Kanji Ninja Scroll Kanji

The Hammer Fist (called Tettsui in some systems, and a Nadare strike in others) to the top of the Head is a powerful strike. It cannot easily be used against a taller opponent – however, it should still be learned because the body mechanics used for this strike are different from the other strikes, and you should be able to generate power when you deliver descending blows.

LETHAL APPLICATION OF THE TETTSUI

Though this is not mentioned in the video, the Hammer Fist or Tettsui is used to cave a section of the opponent’s skull into his brain. This does not mean that anyone can do this. If applied by a less powerful beginner, the Tettsui to the weak point at the front of the skull simply sends a shock wave into the brain, stunning the foe. However, if applied powerfully, it will, because it is applied to a fault-line in the skull, cause a whole section of the skull to collapse inwards, slaying the foe. Look at the video above carefully to learn how to correctly apply the Tettsui.

...READINGS FROM THE SCROLLS...
Victory and Death

Gyokku Ninja fear

Ninja Scroll Kanji Ninja Scroll Kanji

A warrior must have courage, but this is not all;
A warrior must know strategy, but this is not all;
A warrior must have insight into his enemy, but this is not all;

Ninja Yawara Kongou Vajra

No, a warrior must also know the difference between fear and fear;
Which fears are wise and which foolish,
Discarding the unnecessary, and paying heed to the whispers of the necessary;

Ninja Yawara Kongou Vajra

Thus attempting not only victory,
But also attempting to avoid
Defeat and death.

Ninja Yawara Kongou Vajra

For the summer grass cares not
Which warrior’s blood and bones
Provide its nourishment.
