The Flowing Dance (()()(), Rurubu) is a sparring training exercise based on one of the advanced forms of kumite.[1]


The Flowing Dance is a form of sparring where both fighters purposefully carry out both offense and defense slowly, to ascertain the correct flow of each and every basic technique. While to the eye of the profane it might look just like two people moving in slow motion, against an expert opponent, the low level practitioner has no chance of defending himself, however slow the attack; as a consequence, the exercise has meaning only between people of similar strength. In the context of Nen learning, the Flowing Dance serves to perfect Ryu and increase its usage speed.[1]
