Authentic Ninjutsu and Samurai Bujutsu from Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson (宗家 暗主)

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Kamae

 

3.5.2011 – Lesson – Kamae

Kamae is more than jut postures and stances. Kamae comes from the inside out, as does all of the wonderful things that we do in life such as love, compasion, your personality as well as your fighting spirit.

Kamae is the opportunity to embody and unify the mind, body, and spirit/attitude all toward a common goal.

The warrior’s kamae are natural reflections of directed intention. This is not a form to be set as law, these are principals to be set and formed towards kamae.

Kamae (構え) is alive, it breaths and changes with everyone of your movements. Don’t practice kamae in a fixed ridged way, you are missing one of the most beautiful lessons of taijutsu.

I hope that you enjoyed the lesson today!

take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo! –

Anshu Chista Jacobson
Headmistress of the Budo Ryu
