The Ice Release: Dance of the Lady of the Lake, otherwise known as the Water Dance, Dance of Defensive Water, or Water Ice Dance, is a ninjutsu created by Ken Shotai (and BloodWingdAngel in real life) after witnessing Gaara's Shield of Sand. Ken created this jutsu by combining the ability Ice Release gives him to minipulate water, and using his chakra to move the water to anywhere he wishes, as well as using the ability to freeze it to create an ice shield. He first creates water and then assumes a fighting/dance possition with his arms raised. He then moves his arms and possition of his feet to move the water, and by focusing and using his willpower, he can freeze the water. This technique looks almost like a dance when it is used, hence the naming of the jutsu. The jutsu can not only be used defensivly, but also offensively if timed correctly, as the water can not only freeze to create ice spikes, but be used as a whip.

Improvement

The tecnique was improved on by Ken during the two and a half years between Part I and Part II. By the time Zen retired, Ken had improved on this tecnique so much, he only needed two hand seals to activate it, and not as much time to summon the water needed to use the jutsu, almost instaniously able to use it the moment the second seal is done.

Trivia

  • This jutsu was created based on the water benders in Avatar: The Last Airbender (TV Show), and the sand that Gaara has that shields him.
  • It took Ken a month to develop this technique, as well as using a shadow clone to train in taijutsu with Zen. Both he and the shadow clone had weights on to improve speed during this time, giving this jutsu more power with fast reactions.
  • Technically, this jutsu is classified as ninjutsu, taijutsu (due to the unique fighting like dance moments), and kekkai genkai, due to Ice Relase abilities being used to manipulate and freeze the water. Water Release is also speculated to be used to create the water, but not to manipulate it.
