What is Five Elements destructive Cycle (五行の相剋関係)?

The destructive / control cycle represents the natural phenomenon of destruction or control of one element over another. One element can be a destructor and another element can be destroyed. For example, Water can destroy Fire and Metal can destroy Wood. This movement is also commonly used for Sha (瀉) method or sedation meaning that if one element is too strong, it can be suppressed by the destructor element. Thus, the destructor controls the destroyed element.
