Old Story: The Fish & The Fisherman (Do Not Chase Desire) Ninjutsu Martial Arts Philosophy Lesson
In this video, I teach an old zen philosophy lesson called: “The Fish and The Fisherman”. This is a lesson that has been passed down for many years to teach us to not focus on desire.
In the Budo Ryu Kai we study 7 warrior traditions. 1of the 7 warrior traditions of the Budo Ryu Kai is Gyokko-ryu Kosshijutsu. In studying Gyokko-ryu, we learn the 9 rules of Gyokko-ryu. 1 of the 9 rules of Gyokko-ryu is: “Vices dissipate your proficiency”. Today’s philosophy is a good artistic lesson to help understand this particular thought from Gyokko-ryu.
However, as a ninjutsu practitioner you should learn how to use desire to help you complete the mission or objectives. At the end of the video I briefly mention my time “working” in “adult entertainment” and now (in the present day) my students know what I was really doing, who I was working for, and why. I will not get into detail here, however I will say, when I convinced my most hated opposition online to “believe” the “new identity” of me in adult entertainment, it gave me an opportunity to do this job. They (online haters) started posted these “facts” online of me as a escort, etc… This helped me create a new persona and allowed me to get into places to do things that I would not have been able to do. This aspect of creating a new persona, making it believable and getting into places you should not be is a very intricate aspect towards ninjutsu and is something that I will discuss in depth in one of my upcoming books.
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).
