Default why do the ninjas run like that?

ok so i was wondering why the ninjas in naruto as well as other anime always run with their arms dangling behind them? i mean i could understand being aerodynamic in all but you could lose balance and fall face first into the ground, trust me i'v seen little kids try to imitate naruto and bust themselves when they try to go too fast. is this a japanese thing or something? o yea one more thing i don't understand, why is it that their always talking about "at this rate" are japanese people always making calculations in their head, its just that they use it wayyyy to often.... i.e. "At this rate, is anyone going to reply to this thread?''

I don't really know what I'm replying to this for but it's for speed. With their arms behind them, and them leaning forward, they aren't slowed down while running. Also, the creater just might want distinctive running.

I guess to speed up their movement. So that, their movement will be more faster. Even tho they able to move from another tree to anther tree just with a single run/swing..

Did you ever try running like them`?~<3
It's fun >//< !!


Well, I agree., It's for speed.
Shinobi are running way faster than we do.
The arms would only get in the way.-..
that's why they let them go with the wind.
It's also for balance..

True, running like that helps them to run faster and keep balance. But also, probably they're using chakra to run faster (the same goes for jumping from tree to tree).

Maybe they only run like that because it is more flexible...
Rather than they swing back and forth their arm, it takes more energy...

mmmh...I noticed something.
I've played ultimate ninja storm..


In story mode you can walk normal BUT if you press R2 you can run ---> Running consumes Chakra, that's why while running you're surrounded by blue chakra-flames or whatever u want to call it.

So EatMe had the right idea with running consuming chakra and maybe that's why they walk like this etc.

^_____^

Running like they do probably is more aerodynamic and it makes them go faster so they dont waste energy and chakra....

to the "at this rate" phrase, people do estimate things. Mayby they just want to remind you that something is going to happen after a while.

Yup. You're right. aerodynamic is important other than energy and chakra. With all those, that way witll faster, fly with the same flow as wind and go to the destination much simpler and quick.

In a world of fiction, real life things do not fully apply. Seeing as it would be impossible to reach the speed they are going, we can't really say their arms should be behind them or should be in front of them. I think it would be goofy if they ran like us.
