    OK 1. Naruto Rendan but thats it!

    what im saying is that most other nins have some kind of taijutsu (lee with his uber fast taijutsu and his drunken master , Sakura with her super powerfulness , shino with his bugs-that counts right?). Naruto just kinda kicks and punches randomly and the only thing that keeps him going is his awesome amt of stamina. take into consideration the 1st NaruSasu fight(hospital roof). naruto hit sauske 3 times (and according to the anime , 1 time). Naruto gets comboed like a mother****er.(im not sure about the cussing violations here).

    I hope Jiraya has taught him some kind of taijutsu (im thinking something like judo , to get ur opponents on the ground fast and hit them hard)

    Its in his persona to be skilled in Taijutsu.

    He has no form. And it will stay that way.

    Kakashi is supposed to know more than a thousand jutus yet we've only seen about a dozen. Naruto may know more taijutsu, its just that he prefers to use ninjutsu.

    Lee = taijutsu SPECIALIST
    Sakura = greater strength doesn't really count as more taijutsu
    Shino = bugs are NOT taijutsu

    Sasuke has always been a good at taijutsu. To add to that, he's a genius./ Do you really expect Naruto, a guy who failed the academy 3 times, to keep up with Sasuke?

    I know Naruto has been improving. At present, he may even be already stronger than Sasuke. However, at the hospital fight, there was still to big a difference between them for Naruto to equal Sasuke.

    Being trained by one of the Sannin, its likely that he improved his abilities in all areas. However, I don't think Naruto would become a taijutsu fighter. He has been and will always be a ninjutsu type nin.

    IMO, as long as you can whoop ass, it doesn't matter what fighting style you use.

    In KYuubi mode he's great at Taijutsu(it actualy reminds me of Kiba style only more powerful).
    And he's also getting better in non-kyuubi mode, I think kage-bushins combo can be counted in as taijutsu :)

    Not really, his Taijutsu was pretty bad since Sasuke was able to save energy and litterally beat the crap out of him in his Kyubi mode. Naruto has piss poor taijutsu abilities, but he can make up with it by multiplying a 1,000 times over and winning through sheer numbers. Though that doesn't always work, especially with people that are good at Taijutsu (Kimimaro and Neji).

    That being said, Naruto will probably never be very skillful, but that isn't his strong point anyway. Jiraiya told him that he had a lot of power and just had to learn to bring that out fully and he will have plenty of good techniques. So likely Naruto will just have a lot of big raw power skills because it matches his personality and style.

    Naruto would be too overpowered if he was good at tai. Imagine a thousand Rock Lees beating the crap out of you, that would be Naruto and his kage bunshins if he was good at tai.

    First of all, all the teasers we get from kishimoto show us that he has increased greatly in speed and probably taijutsu (he blocked nicely).
    remember when Sasuke threw a kunai at the rain-nin impersonating Naruto?
    He said Naruto would never be able to dodge the kunai, but now we see this reflex against that cho-person.

    Also, when in kyuubi mode, not only did he show us an incredible taijutsu ability against Sasuke, he also negetated Sharingan's effect totally. Not many taijutsu styles have that.
    All he needs to do is get more control over Kyuubi and he'll own anyway. And we know he can: Jiraiya said Naruto looses control fast and overdoes it. that's probably a teaser.

    Preskip Naruto HAD to be be bad at taijutsu. Because Lee style taijutsu + the Kage Bunshin would have owned anyone.

    But he more than made up for it by being the best at ninjutsu.

    Well, it's not funny not having any taijutsu skills, but he is very good with powerful ninjutsu-he can summon Gamabunta...- and you can't have him perfect at everything. Look at Lee. He is good with taijutsu, but he can't use ninjutsu neither genjutsu. And still Lee rocks.

    ^True true. It's like Sasuke. In the beginning, we all thought he was perfect, but his chakra control wasn't perfect, and his Katon Gakyouku no jutsu NEVER WORKS!!! Sure Naruto's taijutsu= old man but he makes up greatly with his ninjutsu, Kyuubi's chakra, and other things worth mentioning. Plus remember
    Spoiler:
    in 253 he blocked all those hits really nice

    Who knows what Naruto is capable of now, post-timeskip? He might actually be as good as Rock Lee used to be. :)

    Naruto is probably in the high Chuunin to low Jounin range for pure taijutsu postskip. He's good, but it's never going to be a speciality of his.

    Now combining that with his uber Kage Bunshin mastery and he's going to be very hard to beat in hand to hands.

    Edit - think Kurenai. We know that Kurenai was good enough to go and block Neji along with Kakashi and Gai, but we also know that taijutsu is not her speciality.

    Well like most people have said, Naruto was training with Jiraiya. We know that Jiraiya trained Naruto to be as good as he can be and he knows that Kage Bushin is his favorite jutsu. He also knows that Naruto's Taijustu is not good at all. He trained him to be able to defend himself from Akatsuki, an organization that wants him. Think about it, Gai trained Lee to be a good ninja and hes great at Taijutsu. Even if Jiraiya. isnt as great as Gai is in Taijutsu, he will atleast be better in it based on the fact he was trained to the max. I think Jiraiya HAD to train him in Taijutsu based on the fact that his Kage Bushin skills are very good and he had to make them better inorder to cooperatate his skills.

    Like Wrath said, he should be in high Chuunin low Jounin rank in Taijutsu. He did block that old woman pretty good. He's gotten better.

    After the time skip, now, Naruto seems to have good taijutsu. Look at ch 253 and see how he blocked chiyobi's (spelling?) the old lady's attacks on Kakashi.

    His new taijutsu style seems to be a blend of kage bunshins and perfect usage of his clones...

    errr spoiler for non manga readers... i dunno how to use tags..
    .
    .
    .
    .
    remember when he first charged at Kakshi for the bell post time skip, he used himself to repel himself from the kunai kakashi threw at his direction and used himself as bait so he can get behind kakashi and stick a giant ninja star to the back of his neck haha

    Well that's half taijutsu and half ninjutsu, since part of it was his timing in creating a Kage Bunshin (ninjutsu) to block her attack and then he repelled her with his own punch, which she blocked, although she seemed to come off worse in the exchange.

    All it really tells us conclusively is that Naruto is awesome.

    I think its inevitable that Naruto will be better at Taijutsu post time skip. However, he is learning from Jiraiya who has not shown any great Taijutsu skills. He seems to be primarily a Ninjutsu user himself.

    It seems like Naruto is a kage bunshin master now after the timeskip, he can get them out in an instant (almost as fast as like Hiraishin no jutsu), i know it is a Ninjutsu but it is used for Taijutsu and i assume that since he can control them so perfectly he is very unpredictable and deadly in taijutsu now....but i don't know we still have to see him fight...

    Jiraiya's skill as a teacher is that he finds what a person is really good at, then concentrates on that to make them AWESOME.

    So, as said, taijutsu will never be a thing of utmost importance to Naruto. Ninjutsu specialist.

    I mean, has he even ONCE done a genjutsu? No. Does it matter? Not really.

    Naruto has mastered his worst skill (Kage Bunshin), I'm sure that he's sharpen
    on other techniques as well.

    Naruto's main area will probably be Ninjutsu/Taijutsu since he basically uses them in conjuction with eachother. Now that his Kage Bushin skills have increased, its only a matter of time until he shows that his Taijutsu is one of the best.

    disappointed? i'd never even thought of it before. maybe he's gotten better by now. but if he isn't, i don't think that i'll be disappointed. as long as he has some super-cool jutsu to show off now, i'm fine.

    Who knows if he didnt teach him that? Personally I think he knows it, otherwise they wouldnt have shown it in the Gaiden. They will have to bring it back someday and with Naruto's speed increased (look at chapter 246) that would also make him more badass.

    I think he has it.

    I agree. Naruto's most likely going to bust it out as a finisher during the next fight he has against Sasuke. Seeing as how he's extremely good at catching people off guard, he may secretly place the seal on Sasuke while purposely taking a hit, only to launch a surprise combination attack later on. Hiraishin + Rasengan or Hiraishin + An Upgraded Naruto Rendan would be devastating.

    It's probably how he will defeat the Sharingan with an instantaneous time-space movement that cannot be tracked.
