Anshu Christa Jacobson – Doton-no-jutsu (土遁之術)
Photo taken from the 2011
Shinobi no Mono Stealth Camp!
Doton no jutsu: Literally “Earth Evasion”. Includes such concepts as using rocks, soil and land contours to aid in the ninja infiltration, evasion and deception.
In this photo here I am demonstrating how the ninja would use soil to throw into the eyes of the enemy as a means of escape. As this does attack the eyes the waza would be part of the metsubushi (目潰し) or eye closers.
