| Name: Quick Step
Special Items: N/A
Description: Uses chakra to decrease weight for a split second in order to move at a speed that is second only to teleportation. Body conditioning used for these techniques requires that no other taijutsu charts are learned. Note: Shukuchi technique inspired by Soujiro Seta
- Quick Step Level 1
Description: The most basic level and form of Quick Step. A shinobi gets a 2x burst of about 2x speed. Due to stress on the inexperienced userís body, it is limited to one usage every two posts.
- Quick Step Level 2
Description: Quick Step level one, now with 3 times the speed in quick bursts. As the shinobi using this technique is more used to the stresses on the body, they can use the technique once per post.
- Quick Step Level 3
Description: Quick step with 5 times the normal moving speed. Can be used twice per post.
- Quick Step Level 4
Description: Quick step with 8x normal moving speed, at this level it is hard to see the shinobi at all while they use this technique. Can be used twice per post.
- Shukuchi: Reduced Earth Technique
Description: As the normal form of quick step is only a dash, the shukuchi allows the technique user to run at 3x speed. Tends to leave a trail of wreckage on the ground below their feet and tear up dirt. Duration of 2 posts. Usable once every four posts.

- Quick Step Level 5
Description: Quick step with 10x normal moving speed. Can be used twice per post.
- Air Quick Step
Description: By using chakra, push off of seemingly nothing at all to switch directions/move faster in the same direction in mid-air at 3x speed. Useable three times per battle.
- Quick Step Mastery
Description: Quick step still with 10x normal moving speed, but it is usable as many times per post as the user wants. However, if it is used more than 5 times in one thread, there will be a 2 post cool down phase during which it can still be used, but it will cause painful physical damage to the user.
