Simply put, Divine Protection of the Wind (風の加護, Kaze no Kago) is a defensive technique that allows the user to shield either themselves or other with swirling constructs of compressed wind chakra. As this technique was designed without the usage of hand seals in mind it relies more heavily upon chakra control than most other skills. Practitioners of this technique generally manifest spiraling barriers of air, but a variation of this skill can be used to create a dome of swirling wind around a target. Both versions of this skill are capable of protecting the user and others from physical and chakra-based assaults. It should be noted that the use of this technique leaves the protected target extremely vulnerable to fire release techniques, which will cause a powerful explosion upon contact with the concentrated wind barrier. Therefore, this skill should be used mindfully in order to maximize its effectiveness.
