This technique allows the practitioner to utilize their mastery of the wind in order to manipulate the air pressure around a designated location. Nōsei no Mikoto developed this technique as a countermeasure against fire techniques. This is accomplished by rapidly decreasing the air pressure in the location of the flames, effectively causing them to be robbed of oxygen. Lowering the air pressure in a certain area also decreases the air resistance in that area, which can have its own benefits. Likewise, rapidly increasing the air pressure around a fire technique as it is being initiated can cause it to prematurely explode.
