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.

Hyuuga [MAIN] – One of the founding noble families of Konohagakure. Each clan member possess the "Byakugan" or "White Eye." When the "Byakugan" is activated, the clan member gains an extra-sensory perception, which gives them penetrating sight and telescopic vision. This allows them to see the internal chakra circulation system in other beings, and grants the member a near 360° view of their surroundings.
The clan uses this ability in conjunction with their own chakra creating the Jyuuken fighting style, also known as "Gentle Fist". By focusing the chakra to their finger tips, they can press the tenketsu or chakra pressure points of their opponents body. When the finger nears the tenketsu the chakra is forced out, collasping the targetted tenketsu for a period of time.
Jounin – Jounin, signifying elite, are ninja who are highly skilled in all jutsu skills and arts. Ninja attain the rank of Jounin through official appointment which varies by village and is given at the Kage's discretion. The Jounin generally serve as squad commander for mission operations, and are skilled at all of the shinobi arts.

Standing a full six feet, nine inches tall, Ichijin towers over his fellow clan-members and villagers like an otherworld structure. though his musculature is by no means extreme, size and weight is enough to remain in imposing figure in the eyes of most men. To top this off, the famous call sign of the Hyuuga shines brightly within him, a beacon for all that warns the wicked not to near - it's those haunting white eyes, dormant, yet ready to come alive. His hair, a soft yet dark brown, has grown somewhat long, hanging loosely at his sides. Even with the War's intensity, he carries so significant scars or blemishes.
Furthermore, he has chosen to retain his long ebony coat, a Captain's robe gifted to him by a Samurai comrade from long ago. Rather than entangle himself in official clothing at all times, Ichijin prefers a more relaxed attire. Rarely, if at all, is he seeing sporting his village's forehead protector, and unless one knew of him personally, his allegiance would remain a mystery. Other than a few accessories and tools, he carries no notable weaponry on him.

Upon the eve of the Great War, Ichijin was pronounced Jounin for the sake of battle, and it is this very skill that prevented his premature death through the war's worst. However, having seen such atrocities incurred ion each other by men, he has grown quiet and observant. Justice is his new goal, and with neutrality, he'd ensure the weak were never at the brunt end of the unjust..
Only the strong survive, a memento displayed with brilliance through the war. However, not all strong deserve to survive either, a nuance that has driven the Main House Hyuuga into a never-ending mental struggle..
Because of the sheer simplicity behind running in general, I do not see this as a person-exclusive technique, especially when you have high-speed techniques like Shunshin for basically nothing to learn. I could see a 'Must be taught by' line there, though, so at least you retain control of the jutsu rights.
From what I gather, though you're exploding into a full run, in the end, you are retaining your maximum running speed. Essentially, you're not getting faster, you're just running sooner than normal. Which is fine to a certain extent, a long as it isn't used as a medium for godmodding, or somehow 'predicting and evading' attacks you wouldn't normally pull off without the super-run.
Sukiru - Make your run so that you have to buy it each time to add constant running around, but you start at one - i.e. Up to one post of running is maintained, plus one more each time retrained.
Rocket Start - Same comment as above regarding starting uses and retraining... though please remember one thing. Substitution works because you can instantly replace yourself with someone when the opponent is looking. Since we established running technique doesn't make you faster, just makes you run sooner, how can you explain pulling off something so quick and instant, purely on a physical level, without sudden enhancement?
Missile - Knock-back, maybe 5 meters, plus 1 more each time retrained?
A decent attempt, though I recommend you run your posts through a Word Processor from now on to fix up a few of the grammar, spelling and capitalization errors you have. I'm not being picky, simply helpful. Hopefully it helps you get better in the future.
Nicely done! I sense quick approvals in the horizon. Just a few things...
Atsui ~ Rather than 5 turns, have it start at 1, and the user can add more with each retraining. Everything else is coolio.
Kyoudo ~ Damnit I like this jutsu. Just wanted to say that.
Jirai ~ AMAZING. Just change the turn limits like Atsui; 1, plus 1 more each time retrained. Makes you specialize more on one thing rather than horde everything =P Oh yeah, and out of curiosity, if someone trips a fire mine near you and the flames cover you both, would you be hurt?
If something has already been made, you CANNOT replicate it with different prerequisites or circumstances unless the actual execution of the former jutsu is altered in the new custom.
Only one (1) selfish/personal custom per month. This means a single custom—one jutsu, one item, etc.—not a set. This also does not mean you can make on selfish at the end of a month and another at the beginning of the next; you need to wait the full month period.
One cannot have more than two (2) open custom threads going at once. These threads can contain as many items as you want in them, so long as they all pertain to the same theme. For example, all Katon techniques or a series of Explosive items.
WIPs are allowed to be posted. However, you need to include (WIP) in the thread title until you're finished. In addition, WIPs that are left for 48 hours without any changes will be given a warning; if they are not worked on within 48 hours of that warning they will be archived.
No bumping before 54 hours!!!
Please be patient, do not flood the same staff member with multiple requests of the same custom!
If a staff member cites an issue with your custom and you point out a mistake in another item/technique/what-have-you to justify it, the custom in question will be archived and you will receive a one week ban from customs (not the site). Likewise, if you then proceed to argue in the cbox about the decision the ban will be extended by one week.
