Budo Ryu; Kansas City, Ks – Gyokko Ryu Kosshijutsu – 玉虎流骨指術

In the training of this event we looked at the basic fundamentals of the Kihon Happo as well as the Churyaku-no-maki scroll of the Gyokko-ryu school of Kosshijutsu.

Gyokko-ryu Kosshijutsu is one of the 7 Warrior Traditions of the Budo Ryu; School of the Warrior Way as the training goes in depth within the 7 traditions of the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo!

Happiness In Life

Happiness in Life

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

Photo Taken: 10.18.2011
After class at the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Hombu.

Yesterday’s classes at the Hombu Dojo made me realize how lucky I am to be able to do what I love to do everyday and make a living at it. I mean that is everyone’s dream isn’t it? To be able to do what you love to do, express who you are to the world and make a living doing it? The unfortunate thing is that not many get this opportunity or maybe,… not many are willing to take the chance.

It was said once by Confucius “Choose a job that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”. He was right. I get the pleasure of everyday waking up and spending the rest of the day dedicated to the authentic ninjutsu and traditional samurai bujutsu and help teach the martial arts to the students of the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo.

Sure; there is work that has to be done; we make video downloads, shinobi no mono magazine, DVD’s for the Ninjutsu Super Store, and uploads and updates to the Budo Ryu Online Dojo as well as keeping in contact with all of our students and supports with our myspace page, facebook page and youtube channel. The greatest part that I find with what I do is that I never get frustrated at all because of what I am doing, I always feel like I want to do more than what I have; and to me that is a good thing!

You only have one life to live, live it to be happy, and don’t be scared to be yourself, that is what is going to really make you happy. Happiness starts within and then it is expressed outward. Just like art.

Shinobi Mumon no Ikkan – The Gateless Gate

The Gateless Gate

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

 

“The great way has no gate;
There are a thousand different roads.
If you pass through this barrier once,
You will walk independently in the universe.”

The Gateless Gate (無門關)

The gateless gate is regarded as the greatest book of zen ever complied. It is a collection of 48 Chan (Zen) koans compiled in the early 13th century by the Chinese Zen master Wumen Hui-k’ai (無門慧開; 1183–1260).

This book was so profound even during the Sengoku Jidai (戦国時代); Samurai (侍)and Shinobi (忍び) families were reading these words as an aid towards enlightenment. In the Shoninki written by Natori Masatake of the Kishu-ryu school of Ninjutsu he writes:

“One of the most important things for you to do is always know everything you can of every place or province that is possible to know. When you are in that said province, be sure to read the feeling of the local people and do what is necessary according to the situation. If your mind is in total accordance with the “way” and understands reasoning and logic perfectly, than you can pass through the mumon no ikkan (The Gateless Gate; 無門關) “checkpoint”. This is a mental place that is barrier without a gateway that exist inside your mind. You will be able to pass through this mental stage because you will have a clear mind and reasonable thinking due to your training.” — Natori Masatake; Kishu-ryu; Shoninki

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Prepare

Tomo Ryu

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

 

“Many men feel that they should act according to the time or the moment they are facing, and thus are in confusion when something goes beyond this and some difficulty arises.” – Hojo Shigetoki; 1198-1261

*******

Understanding — Don’t just live your life day by day, live your life in a more positive realm of preparing today for tomorrow. I tell my students this all of the time,… “prepare for the worst, hope for the best”. The key word here is “prepare”.

With proper preparation, planning and strategy you can achieve anything that you set your mind on. This is more than just combat and martial techniques, this includes life as well.

Live for today, prepare for tomorrow!

I hope that you enjoy the lesson!  Take Care and Be Safe!
