In this video I (Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson) explain the importance of understanding the historical timeline of the ninja. This is because as the era changed, so did the techniques and reasons why the ninja did what they did. In the modern age, we are left with all of these techniques to study, understand and practice. Many think that “all” of the techniques are from the Sengoku Jidai, the age of the warring states. This is not true. In fact, if you understand the time periods, you would then understand what techniques came from what era, the context of the techniques and why the art of ninjutsu transformed from the Sengoku Jidai, through the Edo Period and into the Meiji Period.
This lesson is directly for the practitioners of the ancient Japanese koryu martial arts of the ninja and samurai, such as ninjutsu (ninpo) and bujutsu (budo).
