Description: Similar to the Tree Climbing jutsu and Water walking Jutsu, the Jump Step was created in the Land of lightning as a method to gain better chakra control as well as facilitate mountain climbing. To do this, the user emits a quick burst of chakra from their feet providing a platform for them to jump from in midair. Platforms made in this manner will disburse immdately after jumping from them as they are only stable enough to allow for a brief moment of contact.
Weaknesses: Creates the force necessary for a double jump, but in no way makes you jump any higher than you normally could.
It was early morning as Tsuki got up and did her normal morning routine. Today in addition to the next two days Tsuki decided to train her heart out. Physical activities isn't exactly what she is best suited for since Tsuki realized that she was more experienced in Ninjutsu primarily. If she was going to be honest Tsuki doesn't know why that is the case. However she arrives at the designated training grounds and approaches one of the boulders. Where she will proceed to climb on top of it and ponder for a moment.
What can I do if I drop from here to the ground, and yet someone was to attack me while I am in the air? A while ago there was the training spar against another Genin named Oriana. Tsuki counted at least once that being caught in mid air is generally a bad scenario since even if the target does block there is no resistance. So even if the target doesn't take damage from the blow they would still get knocked back Tsuki reckoned. She hums to herself as her arms crossed over her chest.
It is a long shot, but what if I can suddenly change my direction even in the air? If such a thing is possible, then perhaps chakra expulsion would suffice. Tsuki recalls from training that putting too much chakra on a surface would cause a chakra expulsion and usually knocks the user off from the surface. Tsuki ponders on this theory to potentially create a small platform big enough for her foot and strong enough to carry her weight or even partially to allow her to propel off from. So without further ado, Tsuki hops down from the boulder while concentrating her chakra to the bottom of her feet. Unfortunately by the time she powered up the chakra Tsuki's foot touched the ground and Tsuki is sent flying a good 3 meters above ground from it. Her eyes widened in surprise as Tsuki didn't expect to be pushed so high up. Still she used this opportunity to try again. This time Tsuki somewhat got it as she creates a platform of pure chakra that held up her body for only a brief moment of impact. Tsuki was too surprised and excited of her success that it quickly gave out as it was formed.
Tsuki resumed falling back to the ground, but this time Tsuki wasn't disappointed. She climbs back up on her boulder before hopping down again. She could barely form the platform before she touched the ground, but Tsuki gets back up and tries again. Essentially practicing her reaction time of flowing chakra to her feet while she was at it.
