As I remember during Fourth Shinobi war, when Ten-Tails attack the shinobi with Biju-dama, Shikamaru had some idea to block it with some weak Earth Release that create wall (I don't remember the name of this technique).
So he asked Ino to connect him with some Iwagakure shinobi, (also forgot his name) to teach all of them to use the technique. After the shinobi teaches them how to perform the technique, all the shinobi use this technique to block the Ten-Tail's Biju-dama.
But how were shinobi who never seemed to have Earth Release able to perform this technique? Just like Ino, Shikamaru, and Choji, who I've never seen use Earth Release technique before, were able to perform this Earth Release technique.
