Anshu Christa Jacobson – Warming Up before Class


To start each class you have to start with the correct frame of mind. Start each class knowing that you are there to train your mind, body and spirit as one.  This is a very short clip expressing the start of a class here at the hombu, dedicated to the art of Traditional Samurai Bujutsu and Authentic Ninjutsu.

We start each class with a Bow in, Shiken Haramitsu Daikoumyo (四拳 波羅蜜 大光明) this is the sensation and the harmony perceived by the sense of hearing and heart, to understand this, is to also understand that for every step that I take, I am placing myself one step closer towards my enlightenment.

After the traditional bow in, we then start with kihon (basics) to warm up the body now that we are focused, this video is a short clip of some of the dakentaijutsu drills (striking body drills) that we would do to start the class.
