This technique drains the water from the air around him and cools it enough for it to condense, then solidify into snow. A compact mass of snow is formed as a result, and its size depends on the amount of chakra he puts into it. This serves as a heavy offense as well as a defense, similar to Gaara's manipulation of sand. In exchange for loss of offense, Senkaku can solidify the mass completely into a wall of thick ice for a much stronger defense. He can use this trait of the technique as a sort of body armor. However, too much thinking of the ice in this state will weigh the user down to immobilization, though this can be remedied by removal of the armor, of course.
