Sanjaku-tenugui (三尺手拭い)

Soke Christa Jacobson

Picture Above:
Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson teaching Tomo ryu methods (戸猛流) utilizing various ninki (忍器; ninja tools) at the 2012 Tomo-ryu Shinobi Keiko (戸猛流忍 稽古).
.
Here she teaches various ways of using the Sanjaku-tenugui (三尺手拭い; 3 ft cloth) to aid in shinobi (忍び) missions.
.
A Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton and was a common item during the Sengoku Jidai (戦国時代) and the Edo Jidai (江戸時代) for anyone of any social class to carry as it could be used as a head wrap, washcloth, dishcloth, headband, souvenir or decoration and as a head covering in Kendo (剣道).
.
It is typically about 35 by 90 centimeters in size (approx: 1 1/2 – 3ft in length), plain weaved and is almost always dyed with some pattern.  The shinobi (忍び) would take advantage of this common item and use it to aid them on missions in a variety of ways such as:  creating a shinobi zukin (忍び頭巾; ninja hood) climbing various objects, tying various objects together such as doors, people, tools and weaponry.

Kanwa Jikan (緩和時間):  time to relax

Here I am (6/11/2012) done with the day; thought that I would relax and check out the hottest page on facebook!  I hope that you are all having a great day!

“If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it.” –  Herodotus; 484 – 425 BC

Bushido (武士道)

“If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.”
– David Carradine; 1936–2009

If you cannot express who you are in your journey of life through the human expressions of words and writings; then let the world see who you are through the various artistic expressions of art.

Learn to listen and understand yourself and show the world the one thing that no one else can give to the world; an honest expression you.

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson!

Take Care, Be Safe and Good Luck in your Journey!
