Soke Anshu 2020 Message: Focus On You & Your Martial Arts Training | Ninjutsu, Ninpo, Bujutsu, Budo

 

In this video, I share some thoughts on training with a few of my students at the Budo Ryu Kai Hombu Dojo in Kansas City. The message was to instill the idea that the students need to focus on themselves and their training. They need to leave the negativity outside. They need to get away from all of the hate that we see all over the media, and take the time to make themselves better through the student of the martial arts.

The Greatest Ninja Night Raid in Japanese History | Ninjutsu Training Techniques (Ninpo)

In this video, I discuss the greatest ninja night raid in Japanese History!  As you all know I am the 21st Soke of the Tomo-ryu Ninja tradition and this historical account comes directly from my tradition!
.
Following the Battle of Okehazama in 1560, Tokugawa employed a group of eighty Kōga ninja, led by Tomo Sukesada. They were tasked to raid an outpost of the Imagawa clan. The account of this assault is given in the Mikawa Go Fudoki, where it was written that Tomo-ryu Kōga ninja infiltrated the castle, set fire to its towers, and killed the castellan along with two hundred of the garrison.

What Does “Anshu” Mean? & What Is A Warrior Name In Japanese Koryu Martial Arts? | Ninjutsu, Ninpo

Many times people ask me why I took the title “Anshu” from Stephen K. Hayes. The facts are; I didn’t. There are many different kanji, all with many different meanings and interpretations.  The kanji that An-shu Stephen K. Hayes uses as a title for his martial arts teachings is not the same kanji for the warrior name “Anshu” that was giving to me from my master.
.
Stephen K. Hayes:
“Title” = An-shu means: Custodian of the Spiritual Inn / Enlightened One
.
Christa Jacobson:
“Warrior Name” = Anshu (暗主) means: Dark Master
.
The reality is, many practitioners who study the ancient arts cannot read or write Japanese, so the come up with their own opinions and post incorrect information on the internet.  Hopefully this will clear up the meaning of the “title” of Stephen K Hayes (An-shu) and the warrior name giving to me by my master (Anshu).

Kunoichi (くノ一) The Woman Ninja | Ninjutsu Training Techniques (Ninpo) | Woman’s Self-Defense

In this video, I discuss the Kunoichi (くノ一). A kunoichi is a woman practitioner of ninjutsu (ninpo). During the feudal period of Japan, ninja were used as assassins, spies, scouts and messengers. The training of the kunoichi differed slightly from the training given to male ninja, although they had a common core of martial arts training, such as taijutsu, kenjutsu, and ninjutsu. Kunoichi training tended to prioritize traditional female skills.
.
The eighth volume of the Bansenshukai written in 1676 by Fujibayashi Yasutake, describes the art of Kunoichi-no-jutsu (くノ一の術, Ninjutsu of female ninja). This can be translated as “a technique to use a female” and was employed for infiltration purposes. The Bansenshukai compiles the knowledge of various ninja clans from the Iga and Koka regions dedicated to the formation and understanding of ninjutsu. According to this document, the main function of the Kunoichi was espionage, finding functions in enemy residence, to gather knowledge, gain trust and or listen to conversations.
.
The Bansenshukai (萬川集海) translates as “All Rivers Merge into the Sea”, meaning that the Bansenshukai is the ultimate collection of all Iga & Koka Ninjutsu and is regarded by scholars as the Bible of Ninjutsu.

Understanding the Historical Timeline of the Ninja | Ninjutsu History, Tradition & Training

In this video I (Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson) explain the importance of understanding the historical timeline of the ninja.  This is because as the era changed, so did the techniques and reasons why the ninja did what they did.  In the modern age, we are left with all of these techniques to study, understand and practice.  Many think that “all” of the techniques are from the Sengoku Jidai, the age of the warring states.  This is not true.  In fact, if you understand the time periods, you would then understand what techniques came from what era, the context of the techniques and why the art of ninjutsu transformed from the Sengoku Jidai, through the Edo Period and into the Meiji Period.

Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson: My Extreme Approach To Ninjutsu Training | Ninja Martial Arts (Ninpo)

In this video I (Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson) explain why my approach towards ninjutsu training and physical conditioning is so extreme. We live in a world where violence, aggression, prejudice and hate is on the rise.  The only way to excel and perform in a violent extreme situation is to be highly skilled in violence, through extreme training.

The Difference Between INNIN (Dark Ninjutsu) & YONIN (Light Ninjutsu) | Ninja Martial Arts Training

In this video I teach a historical ninjutsu lesson on the differences between Innin (dark ninjutsu) and Yonin (Light Ninjutsu).
.
INNIN (陰忍)
Dark Ninjutsu (also known as: Innin-jutsu and In-jutsu): This is spying and performing espionage out of the vision of your target. Generally camouflaged, wearing black, hiding within cover and staying in the shadows.
.
YONIN (陽忍)
Light Ninjutsu (also known as: Yonin-jutsu and Yo-jutsu): This is spying and performing espionage in the vision of your target. Generally in disguise under a false persona, walking through the crowds and interacting with people gathering information.
.

Ninja-Iai: Iaijutsu Quick Draw Training Drills with Kodachi (Ninjato) | Ninjutsu, Bujutsu, Kobujutsu

In this video I demonstrate a basic iai (iaido) sword drawing training drill to help develop the skills needed to be proficient in iaijutsu. In this drill I am using a kodachi (ninjato) because the ryuha that we are training in has a strong focus on the use of the short sword.
.
The training (keiko) of Iai/iaido/iaijutsu is to be able to respond quickly to a unexpected attack efficiently.  This is a skill-set that is highly needed in today’s world of self-defense, as these same skills can be equally used in the use of concealed carry with edged weapons for self-defense / self-protection.
