Anshu Christa Jacobson – Teaching from the Scrolls
Teaching from the Scrolls.
“The real reason that we all train is to ultimately find happiness and the only way to attain true happiness is to attain mastery through our personal passion”
– Kobayashi Ichiro
20th Soke Tomo Ryu
Once a year I hold an annual Tomo Ryu TaiKai. Here I get to share all of the scrolls, densho, pictures and relics with my students. This is the way I can show and express this art to them personally and give them something special, something that only one gets if they train with me.
Here in this photo I am showing them the Tomo Ryu Heiho Makimono. This details the military strategies and tactics of the ryu. Towards the end of the makimono there is a section of survival skills when alone traveling. This details how to find or obtain water, food and shelter while concealing your identity from others.
I hope that you enjoyed the lesson,
Take Care, Be Safe & Good Luck in your Journey of Budo!
