A Japanese street fighting move where a Ronin Samurai Warrior takes both hands, cups them, and claps the palms of his or her hands over the ears of the opponent causing the figheter to lose their hearing and become disoriented. This move, if administered hard enough, can cause the opponent to fall without the need for a second blow. The bundo technique is typically a combination though where the ear clap is a predicessor to a death punch, grip or harminonizing a group of attackers with one sweep of a Ronin Tanto Blade. An excellent precursor for a death punch or some other blow or form or attack to permanently take down the enemy.
The fighters were engaged for at least a half an hour. Eventually, Jubei, one of the leaders of the Takeda army inflicted his signature combination Bundo technique to disorient the attacker finishing him off by infilicting a tucked finger death punch to the throat which cuts off the victim's oxigen supply ultimatly resulting in the opponent's death and victory for the Takeda Army. During the Bundo combination, the sentence, "I shall seal your fate!" are screamed in Japanese so as to allow the attacker a brief moment to reflect and become one with his or her surroundings before losing consciousness and dying from lack of oxygen.
