This is a General Skill taught to ninja who have just earned the Genin rank and assigned to a team lead by a Jōnin. The Manji Formation is a very basic formation that is used to protect a central point, to defend against multiple attacks coming from multiple locations, or to defend a group against an attack that could come from any unknown angle. Its name derives from the shape of a manji, 卍, as the formation requires a person facing outwards at all four points, where the four ninja's backs face each other. Each person is responsible to guard against the area straight ahead of them and to the left, as the manji suggests. This formation has one blind spot: the centre. This formation skill was first witnessed by the masters who created ninja arts when they were younger.
