The Art of Tenjin-ryu Jujutsu: True Traditional Budo Training | Martial Arts Fighting Techniques

In this video, I share a brief demonstration on The Art of Tenjin-ryu Jujutsu. A True Art of Traditional Budo Training.

.
[History of the Art, taken from www.BudoRyuNinjutsu.com ]

Tenjin Ryū Jujutsu (天神流柔術), literally meaning “Gentle Art of the Heavenly Divine” has it’s historical roots, classical kata and training methods dating back centuries to Japans warring past of the Sengoku period (戦国時代) and can be classified as a traditional school of jujutsu.  It was founded by Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson by combining all of her koryū bujutsu (古流; classical Japanese warrior arts) and gendai budō (現代武道; modern martial arts) training that she experienced during her time as an apprentice.
.
Just as in the Koka-ryu school of Kempo, Soke Anshu wanted to share with her students all of the principals and strategies that was taught to her from her masters and share that with them.  She also wanted a specific method of jujutsu for the Budo Ryu Kai that blends, flows and connects the other six traditions of the school together and can adapt in any situation.  The Tenjin-ryu school of jujutsu is the glue that connects the other traditions together within the Budo Ryu Kai.

Seizonjutsu: Survival Training within Historical Ninjutsu | Ninja Martial Arts (Ninpo)

Facebook Post Here:
https://www.facebook.com/SokeAnshu/posts/2985723111472256

In this video, “Survival Training within Historical Ninjutsu”, I discuss a specific “jutsu” within the training of Tomo-ryu Shinobijutsu called seizonjutsu.  This is a specific aspect of training within Tomo-ryu, which is much different than that of other more popular ninjutsu ryuha such as Togakure-ryu Ninpo Taijutsu.
.
Schools such as the Bujinkan, Genbukan, Jinenkan, etc have never formally had “survival training”, in their curriculum.  There has never been a time that you see Masaaki Hatsumi or any other “Togakure-ryu” practitioner in Japan teach: primitive fire making, how to disinfect water while living off of the land, how to build shelters, tracking and survival skills.  Ever… They teach taijutsu, kobujutsu, etc.  That is not me being disrespectful towards them at all. That is me stating a fact.
.
I could say the same thing towards other martial arts such as: Taekwondo, Karate, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Aikido. They do not teach survival skills either as part of their martial art curriculum.  Again, that is not me being mean or hateful.  It is me stating a fact.
.
In 2010, I started making seizonjutsu lessons and posts more available in the public and in 2011, I wrote a book (Shinobi no Michi; The Way of the Ninja) detailing the importance of seizonjutsu and its importance within historical ninjutsu training. Then out of no where, all of these people that were trashing me, from these other organizations started teaching “Seizonjutsu”.  Some of them are even from some of the organizations that I stated above.
.
In the Budo Ryu Kai, we have 7 warrior traditions and the Togakure-ryu is one of them.  There is no “Seizonjutsu” in Togakure-ryu. I teach Togakure-ryu.  Like I stated above; There are no videos or books of Masaaki Hatsumi rubbing sticks to create primitive fire. Just look at the Togakure-ryu densho. There is nothing at all written about primitive survival training. However, there are many things that are specific to the Togakure-ryu, that are not found in any other ninjutsu ryuha as well.  But this post is not about Togakure-ryu, it is about Seizonjutu, which is a specific skill within Tomo-ryu. So anyone who is teaching Togakure-ryu and is adding “Seizonjutsu” to their curriculum got it from watching and reading my materials…
.
I will say there is a “grey area” with survival training within Togakure-ryu. As a teacher of the Togakure-ryu, I help many other teachers of this particular ryuha and they ask me many questions. The reason that “Seizonjutsu” is NOT within the Togakure-ryu is because they have a set of teachings called the TenChiJin and the individual skills, such as use of water (suiton) use of fire (katon) and so on are found in the TenChiJin.  So if you are a Togakure-ryu instructor.  Your survival teachings (if you are sticking to the densho) would be in the TenChiJin aspect of training. So if you teach the Togakure-ryu, shouldn’t call it Seizonjutsu, you should be calling it what is written in the densho, and that aspect of part of the TenChiJin.

The Art of Koka-ryu Kempo: True Traditional Budo Training | Martial Arts Fighting Techniques

In this video, I share a brief demonstration on The Art of Koka Ryu Kempo.

[History of the Art, taken from www.BudoRyuNinjutsu.com]

Koka Ryu Kempo (甲賀流拳法) was constructed by Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson as a system for self-improvement, self-discipline and self-protection.  Soke Anshu trained in many different kenpo / kempo systems and wanted to compile all of her training into one practice of kempo calling it, Koka-ryu Kempo.  The Art of Koka-ryu Kempo is a direct lineage of Kosei Ryu Kempo which originated from the Shiga prefecture of Japan, also known as Koka.

In 2006 Soke Anshu inherited the art of Kosei-ryu Kempo, making her the 4th Soke within its lineage.  However; since she was already teaching kempo as part of the Budo Ryu Kai curriculum, she had to make a choice.  To either cut out all of the kempo teachings that are not Kosei-ryu, and only teach the Kosei-ryu methods, or to take the art of Kosei-ryu Kempo that she inherited, and combine it with her other kempo training and experiences.

Soke Anshu decided to combine all of her kempo training, principals, and strategies together under the Budo Ryu banner; constructing the art of Koka-ryu Kempo.  Since Kosei-ryu came from the Shiga prefecture of Japan, and it’s the fundamental base of the Budo Ryu kempo curriculum, it is only fitting to have named the kempo training Koka-ryu Kempo which translates out as: “Koka School of Fist Fighting”.

How To Train In Traditional Martial Arts For Modern Self-Defense | Ninjutsu, Bujutsu, Kobujutsu

 

In this video I teach how to train in traditional martial arts and how to make it work for the modern world of self-defense.  There are so many so called “Ninjutsu” or “Bujutsu” schools of classical martial arts that say (claim) that they are teaching methods of martial arts that fit in the modern day, when the facts are, they are not.  They are lying to make money, and they know it.

In the video you will hear me talk about “henka”. Yes many classical dojo / koryu schools of budo/ninpo do henka.  The difference is that their henka is still set within the 15th century.  They are not applying the principals, strategies and philosophies of the kata (that they claim to be a master of) in the modern world of self defense.  Instead of mastering the arts that they claim to be dedicated too, they study “koryu” and then do modern martial arts such as Krav Maga or Systema for the “Self-Defense”.  To all of “1st degree masters” that do this: You should be embarrassed of yourself and you should apologize to the warrior arts that you claim to be so dedicated to.

The facts are, there is no martial art that is better than another.  They were all made for different reasons at different times in history.  The best thing to do is fine a martial art that like you (regardless of what it is), find a master that will teach you, and dedicate yourself to the mastery of that art.
