Anshu Christa Jacobson – Stabbed in the Back!

 

 

Stabbed in the Back!

************************************
What do you do when you know that it is coming?

You know that you are helping someone, because they need help and they asked you to help them, yet once they get the help, they are going to drop you and give you NO CREDIT AT ALL — NO RESPECT — NO HONOR.

Do you keep helping them? if so Why?

BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT NOT HELP YOU.
HELPING OTHERS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
*************************************

Right now I am helping many people in the martial arts community in various different areas from teaching, administration, business, advertising, promotional ideas and video / photography design. I love helping them, If I can use my popularity in the arts to help others that is great! This just ads more positive energy in the marital arts community! 🙂

But as I write this there are 4 people that I am helping that I have found out from different sources are telling me one things and are going to be doing another. Even though I know that I am doing A LOT OF WORK for these 4 individuals & I know from very close sources once they get what they want from me, they are going to leave and not give me or my school any credit. I am still going to help them anyway,…and this is why.

#1 – Because I said I would, my word is my honor. Even to those that I ask for help, I always do what I say I will in the end. This is the only way to keep your honor.

#2 – Because my students, friends and fans will know that I am doing the right thing, and in the end, this is the correct thing to do.

#3 – When they show their real meaning — when they show what they are really worth — everyone will know that I knew that this was going to happen, and I chose this path anyway.

Because I can sleep at night knowing that I did the best I could to helping someone become better and stronger,I cant sleep at night knowing that I am not doing the correct thing.

—- If I don’t help them, that is me placing my personal gain over them as a person, so even though I know that I am not getting the same attention that I am giving them, a warrior does not place him/her self over anyone, they do the right thing in helping those that need help —-

There are those that are just about themselves and then there are those that are about helping others. All I care about is helping people learn these arts and spread the correct teachings of Authentic Ninjutsu.

This is the essence – We have to train hard and push ourselves in all three spirits of Budo (mind, body, sprit). The day that we stop learning, stop training and stop trying to make ourselves better as well as the others around us,…is the day that we get passed by and become a faint memory. Budo has to grow with the times, as do we.”

In the end, the ones that do not help anyone and just talk hate and are so fixed on personal gain they will be a forgotten shadow in history. No one wants to go to their grave forgotten. Help anyone you can, and let them choose their destiny. I wish you all the best my friends.

Take Care, Be Safe & Good Luck in your Journey of Budo.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – The truth behind the ninjato

 

THE NINJATO DID EXIST! (CHOKUTO)
As many of you know the “chokuto” is one of the weapons used in the Tomo Ryu as well as the Kodachi (O-wakizashi).  These are the primary swords of the Tomo Ryu Tradition.  For many years no I have been saying that this sword in fact did exist as this is in the oral tradition of the Tomo Ryu.  However; many from the bujinkan members has said that the sword never did exist and anyone that was using that sword was in fact fake.  This is clearly one of the best historical findings of the Historical Ninjutsu Research Team and Antony Cummins.  All of these years that the “bujinkan” was suppose to be the best source is clearly shown video after video from the historical ninjutsu team that they are false.********************MY MAIN POINT HERE IS the photos are from the Edo period or before, so that predates the “ninja boom” even in Japan by almost 100 years and it was made by Japanese which means that the straight blade did exist at least,…….”in the eyes” of the Japanese.  Which means that they are not a hollywood invention that many claim that it is.  Keep in mind, there is no “ninja sword” just swords used by the ninja.********************So for all of you with the Chokuto, KEEP TRAINING, this is just as historically accurate as the katana, wakizashi and tanto!  Have fun training and be safe my friends!
