"Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there. "
Maki Zhijun

The Yuengiri Academy (ユンギリ, Way of Honor), is an institute co-founded by Kenji Hiroshi, Kusaka Kori and Maki Zhijun. The academy aims to train individuals in the techniques, beliefs and teachings of the Yuengiri Order. The institute itself is located within the hidden Village of Horiwari (ほりわり, Japanese for canal or waterway), and is one of the largest buildings within the village itself. The Academy, because of its location, is also the main training ground of The Ryu Order. The greatest youth ever produced by the Academy is Shinrei Kurosaki.

Overview Edit

The Academy complex is home to more than just the new generation of the Yuengiri Order. Like the Shinō Academy of Soul Society, the complex has Zanjutsu training halls, Kidō facilities, Hōhō grounds and Hakuda areas in order to train an individual in the battle styles of the Shinigami as well. This sector of the Academy is styled differently than the Shinō Academy, as those who are assigned the role of Head Instructor command with authority comparable to that of a Gotei Captain. Below are a list of the known instructors:

Zanjutsu Edit

Zanjutsu (斬術, Swordsmanship; Viz "Art of the Sword"; Cutting Technique) is the fighting style for the zanpakutō, taught to every new recruit who joins the Academy.

Zanjutsu Techniques Edit

Hitotsume: Nadegiri: (撫で斬り, "The First: Killing Stroke") This basic technique allows for a precision cut of extreme force and speed, it can casually slice through large, multi-story high opponents protected by steel skin. The opponent can be killed with one swift slash so precise, that they aren't even aware of until after it has taken place.

Agitowari: (顎割, "chin/jaw splitting") A sword technique where a single sword attack cuts an opponent in half from the jaw down the length of the body until the target is bi-sectioned. Momentum, physical and spiritual strength all play vital roles in determining whether or not the technique will be successful.

Suikawari: (西瓜割, "Watermelon Splitting") A technique where the user comes down with their sword upon the head of an enemy, usually multi-storied, with enough strength to cleanly cut down through the head with ease due to the fierce momentum gained from the downward strike.

Senmaioroshi: (千枚卸, "Thousand-Page Wholesale") A technique where multiple blade movements take place so fast that they can literally shred a target into pieces. Kenji states that this technique was an imitation of the Yuengiri technique known as Saidanodori.

Ryōdan: (両断, "Bisection") A two-handed sword technique that has the practitioner bring the sword down with enough force that it can cut an opponent in half right down the middle if they have sufficient physical and spiritual strength.

Hakuda Edit

Hakuda (白打, "Hand-to-Hand Combat"; lit. white hits) a close-combat style of fighting in which one is unarmed and uses only ones body.

Hakuda Techniques Edit

Ikkotsu: (一骨, "Single Bone") A powerful punch used by Yamamoto against Wonderweiss Margela, now taught at the Yuengiri Academy. Using this technique, Yamamoto was able to destroy much of Wonderweiss' abdomen and send him flying along a city street and into a building, destroying it. It should be noted that strength, in regards to both physical and spiritual, greatly effect the outcome of the technique.

Sōkotsu: (双骨, "Double Bone") Stronger than Ikkotsu, it is a powerful two-fisted punch used by Yamamoto against Wonderweiss, now taught at the Yuengiri Academy. The attack in one blow can totally destroy an opponent. It should be noted that strength, in regards to both physical and spiritual, greatly effect the outcome of the technique.

Oni Dekopin: (鬼デコピン, "Oni Headpoke") A technique where a simple finger flick has enough physical force to send an opponent flying a considerable distance away, even with enough power to crash through multiple physical constructs. Like Ikkotsu and Sōkotsu however, physical and spiritual strength greatly effect the outcome of the technique.

Raiōken: (雷王拳, "Thunder King Fist") A Hakuda technique involving a serial of rapid punches. Using this technique, Yoruchi was able to severely crack Aizen's first form and destroyed a portion of Karakura Town in the process. Now, it is taught at the Yuengiri Academy. It should be noted that strength, in regards to both physical and spiritual, greatly effect the outcome of the technique.

Sandobaggu Bīto: (サンドバッグ・ビート, Sandbag Beat) A technique where Kensei delivers multiple strikes at an extremely fast past causing aggravated damage to a target. The technique is powerful enough to not only shatter a Menos Grande's mask but utterly destroy its body. He later taught the students and Instructors how to perform the technique, so it is now taught at the Academy as well. It should be noted that strength, in regards to both physical and spiritual, greatly effect the outcome of the technique.

Hōhō Edit

Hohō (歩法, Agility; Viz "Fast Movement"; lit. step method) is the name given to one of the four combat skills of the Shinigami and relates to footwork, with the Arrancar and Quincy employing their own methods which are also taught. Shunpo (瞬歩, Flash steps) is the most fundamental Hōhō technique and is usually the first skill learned.

Hōhō Techniques Edit

Shunpo (瞬歩, Flash steps), a movement technique that allows the user to move faster than the eye can follow. The focal point that determines the basis of this technique is speed. As speed is the main point of the technique the method is best characterized by how fast one can get from point A to point B in the least amount of steps. Training and skill are what determines how fast a user of Shunpo can move; those of little skill in the technique or those who haven't used it an extended amount of time would obviously be out of practice, causing those individuals to be considerably slower, which requires the use of more steps to move the same distance and become winded far easier in a shorter amount of time.

  • Senka: (閃花, Flash Blossom) A special Shunpo technique where one moves to their opponents back. Directly attacking and sealing one's "Saketsu (鎖結, Chain Binding)" and "Hakusui (鎖結, Soul Sleep)" in one strike. The movement is so fast that an opponent may not be able to tell whether he was attacked from the front or the back and even an outside observer may find it impossible to tell what the movements are. Only truly skilled practitioners can hope to learn this specialized technique.
  • Utsusemi: (空蝉, Cicada, referencing their molting) It allows for a movement at great speed leaving an afterimage behind. The afterimage may even appear to have taken damage. Only truly skilled practitioners can hope to learn this specialized technique.

Sonído (響転 (ソニード), Sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound", Japanese for "Sound Ceremony") is a technique used by Arrancar, Vizard and Excavado, which allows them to move at extreme speeds, making it equivalent to Shunpo. Since so many of the Orders members are Vizards, Arrancar or Excavado, this variant is also taught at the Yuengiri Academy, though not with as much focus as Shunpo. While somewhat similar to Hohō, Sonído appears to be more instinctual than Hohō, requiring no previous knowledge to perform, which also lessens its need to be taught.
