|Pulse Release: Sandstorm|
|Name||Pulse Release: Sandstorm|
|Classification||Kekkei Tōta, Ninjutsu|
|Hand Seals||Dragon → Boar → Dog|
One of the most basic Pulse Release techniques which is also one of the most effective defensively. The user imparts kinetic energy gathered from previous usage to the ground around him to cause the dust and loose earth particles to fly around with increased velocity. The "sandstorm" so created can then be used as an distraction to escape the scene or hide from his opponent. This technique can also be used to blindside an opponent and attack them from a different direction as compared to his original position. But to pull off such an attack he must make note of his opponent's position so that he can attack him or her as this sandstorm blinds him just like it would any other person.
This technique is useless against combatants with kekkei genkai like the sharingan or the byakugan as they can still track him through the dust by means of his chakra signature.
