The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.

Hokou Fuuton (Wind Walk)[/u] Rank: C Type: Supplementary/Ninjutsu Range: Self Special: The channeled chakra around the shinobi’s feet increases the user’s movement speed allowing them to remain on equal footing with a taijutsu user without mastery for a very short time. Description: After forming a short set of seals, the user channels chakra around their feet. The wind chakra then swirls around the shinobi’s feet, lifting them enough that the user almost hovers above ground. The wind around their feet allows the user to propel them forward, the reduced friction making the ninja move more quickly, giving them a burst of speed and making them more agile. Domain: Fuuton
Absolutely not. This completely negates the drawback of not being a Taijutsu Primary. We allow for short-term (very short term) speed boosts on the site but an eternal speed boost like this is simply out of the question.

It's just that there is a hozuki technique that allows the user to glide across the water and increase their speed so I couldn't see why wind wouldn't be allowed. I modified it to make it very short, is that allowed or still no?

If the wind is actually picking you up and pushing you around, then in order to constantly direct the technique you'll need some sort of way to continuously direct the chakra, because it's an evolving technique performing a non-linear function, i.e. the same movement every time. To make this more acceptable, the rank would need to be bumped to A and you'd need to state that you have to control the technique via a maintained handseal or some other sort of function, and you wouldn't be able to utilize other jutsu while you were doing it without having the Double Cast mastery.You also wouldn't be running while this was active but just pushing yourself along in a bubble of wind, essentially. It would need also either a duration or a constant drain on your chakra to maintain it.
Comparing it to Hozuki is flawed because Hozuki's bodies are already composed out of the water and all they do is revert their legs towards a more jelly state and glide across the water in order to achieve higher speeds. They require a Water surface for their ability to work, whereas yours will work anywhere and everywhere. This is a different sort of technique in the fact that it's just a standard Fuuton which allows Ninja with no domain in Wind beyond their ability to manipulate it to exceed their character's imposed limits (which, in turn, destroys the balance of the site's Primary-Secondary-Tertiary system).
Make all of the changes I've listed and I'll allow this technique to go through; otherwise it breaks all of the balancing the site has and cannot be allowed.
