The Earth Technique (地術, Chijutsu?) is the elemental type Kigata most similar to the original storm styles it relates to grounding, cultivation of energy and energy embedding. This technique manipulates and alters matter by tapping into the diastrophic energy that is released from the movement and collision of tectonic plates deep within the Earth's crust. User focuses and dictates that flow of power molding it to their will allowing them to allowing them to manipulate the surrounding earth for offensive and defensive purposes; be it dirt, mud, or rock.
Chijutsu techniques have the ability to change the strength and composition of the earth from being as hard as metal to as soft as clay. This includes allowing the user to travel through ground and rock in various ways which can be essential for both transportation and for setting up attacks or creating defenses or for offence. Indeed, this makes earth techniques one of the most versatile of the elemental types. Pre-existing earth is not necessary though, for the user can create it bu mixing their own spiritual energy with that of the earths. Chijutsu is naturally strong against water but likewise, it is also naturally weak against lightning.
