Authentic Ninjutsu and Samurai Bujutsu from Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson (宗家 暗主)

What Does “Anshu” Mean? & What Is A Warrior Name In Japanese Koryu Martial Arts? | Ninjutsu, Ninpo

Many times people ask me why I took the title “Anshu” from Stephen K. Hayes. The facts are; I didn’t. There are many different kanji, all with many different meanings and interpretations.  The kanji that An-shu Stephen K. Hayes uses as a title for his martial arts teachings is not the same kanji for the warrior name “Anshu” that was giving to me from my master.
Stephen K. Hayes:
“Title” = An-shu means: Custodian of the Spiritual Inn / Enlightened One
Christa Jacobson:
“Warrior Name” = Anshu (暗主) means: Dark Master
The reality is, many practitioners who study the ancient arts cannot read or write Japanese, so the come up with their own opinions and post incorrect information on the internet.  Hopefully this will clear up the meaning of the “title” of Stephen K Hayes (An-shu) and the warrior name giving to me by my master (Anshu).
