Authentic Historical Ninjutsu & Classical Koryu Bujutsu Skills | Ninpo & Budo Training Demo

In this video I thought I would share with you a demonstration (demo) on authentic historical ninjutsu and classical koryu samurai bujutsu skills! I used the footage from our taikai events over the last 10 years, to create this fun demo for all of you!

There are so many “ninpo schools” that teach taijutsu and call it ninjutsu.  Ninjutsu is not taijutsu.  Ninjutsu is ninjutsu.  Here at the Budo Ryu Kai, we pride ourselves on the study and training of authentic ninjutsu and classical samurai bujutsu!

One of the reasons some of the larger “ninpo organizations” and members of these organizations like to belittle and trash me and my organization (Budo Ryu Kai), is simply because they know they are NOT teaching real historical ninjutsu. It is easier for the “established businesses/organizations” and “online haters and trolls” to keep doing what they are doing, even though they know they are wrong.  Regardless of how many attack me, the truth is the truth and if you are a student of the Budo Ryu Kai, studying Budo Ryu Ninjutsu, than you are without a doubt, 100%, studying true ninjutsu, bujutsu and kobujutsu.

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).

Stay Away from Hate & Negativity

Today’s Lesson | Stay Away From Hate & Negativity
.
Yesterday I went out for a walk to shoot a video and share some of my thoughts on the MartialArts with all of you. This video was me going over my journey of teaching Ninjutsu all of these years. The video included all of the ups and the downs and the good and bad lessons that I learned along the way. The video was about 1 hour long, which means it would be about 40 min. once I edit and cut it down.
.
In the video I found myself drifting and discussing topics that were toxic and would not lead to any positive outcome at all. So I decided that I would not post the video. I know that there are many people in all of the martial arts community that are very “open” and “public” about voicing their opinions and trashing and hurting others. But as I have stated many times, I will never take part in that. However, because I have said this statement numerous times, that is why I have been taken advantage of so many times in the past. Certain people knew they could walk on me, knowing I was not going to “out them” publicly.
.
There is an old saying:
“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall from anything.”
.
Regardless if you believe what I believe or practice what I practice, if you know me, than you know I live a very Esoteric life. I do believe in Magic / Magick, universal energy, Chakra, Karma, 3 fold law, etc… Because of my spiritual position I do not allow myself to take part in situations or align myself with people that can bring negativity towards me in anyway. Which is one of the basic lessons of Self Defense; Best Defense is to not be there.
.
Instead of me using personal experiences and telling you about how “this person” and “that person” did me wrong, using conniving, backstabbing and treacherous methods so that they could “advance” or “benefit” either personally or professionally by using me and my friendship. I am going to give you a more “public” example so that you understand my point.
.
See, if I was to use the personal experience as an example and talk about “this person” and “that person”, I would be talking about things that are 100% true, but happened behind the scenes. Which means “this person” and “that person” would simply deny the allegations and maintain whatever their positions are with whatever situation that I was talking about. So to make this more clear. Let me give you an example of the bullshit that I stay away from that is very public and cannot be argued.
.
There is a man online who has never met me, never trained with me, yet has made numerous videos and posts about me. In a video he posted, he dressed up as a woman, mocked me, belittled me, then placed a banana between his legs and cut it off making fun of me because I am a Transgender Woman. So many people attach themselves to this hateful vulgar person and I do not understand why. From a martial arts perspective he does not have high rank at all, nor is he a teacher. He may have a large book collection but his attitude is so vile and disgusting, I do not understand why anyone would want to associate themselves with this person at all. It does speak very loud and clear about those that would condone this individual and still want to align themselves personally and professionally.
.
This person that I am speaking of is so hateful; at one time, he posted a series of videos attacking a specific individual on YouTube. In the end, the man that he was attacking, hung himself because of this individuals hateful online bullying. Knowing that, there are still people to this day that will speak his name in their videos as though this man is an authority, attempting to give him a platform to share his knowledge, when the facts are, having a large book collection does not make you an authority, nor does it mean you are knowledgeable.
.
Have you ever noticed that the majority of the people that take this hateful approach online are all depressed, alone and do not have too many friends? They seem to think that having an “online base” makes them more “likeable”. But in fact, it is the opposite. The majority of them do not have many friends because no one wants to be around them.
.
Have you also noticed that the majority of these people are single, not married and do not have kids? One could argue that this is a personal decision, but very few would argue that family, love and acceptance are the most important aspects towards happiness in life. I do not hate/dislike any of these people, including the individual that I used as an example earlier. I feel sorry for all of them. Because they will never truly understand or experience what it is that I am talking about.
.
Again, you need to stand for something or you will fall for anything. You are better than that. Never lower your standards, even if everyone around is doing so. Remember the people that are trying to pull you down are already below you. Stand up for what you believe in. It does not matter if the whole “Ninjutsu Community” if full of hateful, narcissistic, self centered, self absorbing egotistical Prejudice bigots. I will never lower my standard of excellence and will still provide an opportunity for those who want to train in authentic ninjutsu classical samurai Bujutsu in a positive environment.
.
Have you noticed that the weaker always travel in groups? You see this in nature too. The weaker animals always travel in groups because they feel safer, even if they do not like other members of their group. The strong always seem to be okay with standing on their own feet and not aligning themselves with others.
.
I stand alone with my teaching in ninjutsu. Yet, many of the weak want to always congregate and feed off of each other, yet self-proclaim themselves as doing something great. When in reality, behind the scenes, they are the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
.
In the Budo Ryu Kai, we have a 100% Zero Hate Policy. If anyone posts hate they will be dismissed. If anyone supports hate, they will be dismissed. If anyone wants to align themselves with hateful people, they will be dismissed. It is that simple.
.
To give you an example of this, I am a Transgender woman married to a woman of color and we have mixed kids. If someone wanted to be a member of the KKK and support David Duke (grand-wizard of the KKK), then they will not be a member here. I am not going to have a student that supports a hateful organization that is attacking me and my family along with many other Budo Ryu Ninjutsu students of color as well as their families. However, everyone knows that I am a transgender woman married to a woman of color and we have mixed kids. So I could give examples on hateful groups against LGBTQ, transgender people, gay marriage, etc. But I am in hope that you understand where I am going with this point.
.
See the majority of the weak, are not in the same position that I am in. I am married, with kids. So I have to set an example for my children. I am a teacher of the arts and I have thousands of students all over the world who look up to me for guidance. Am I human? Yes. I would love to get online and put them all on blast. But that action goes against everything that I stand for, and I have a much larger responsibility then all of them and I will not lower myself to their level.
.
I am in hopes that all of you can learn something from this lesson. Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo.

Real Ninjutsu Training? What is your fucking problem?

Today I am here to ask you a very simple question. What is your fucking problem? Before I begin with today’s lesson and question for all of you, I feel that I need to give you a little background story so you understand where I am coming from.

As many of you know, I’m the only Transgender person who has created her own martial arts organization and has gown her business to be a worldwide international school of classical Japanese martial arts.

I started the Budo Ryu Kai back in 2004, and I’ve never looked back! In the past 16+ years, I have created my own label and trademark writing 6 books, producing over 50+ DVDs, hundreds of downloads and establishing a complete online school for classical ninjutsu & bujutsu (just to say a few of my accomplishments). However, with all of that, it is not easy being a Transgender Woman in the world of combat & survival.

All over the internet, there has been so many hateful people that’s posted so many lies, false statements and Fake News about myself, my training/experience, my organization (Budo Ryu Kai) and the art that I teach (Budo Ryu Ninjutsu). Today’s topic has not much to do with the Haters, but have you noticed that I never stopped doing what I do, just because closed minded people want to trash me? I never have and I never will. I’m not that weak.

To add more fuel, NO ONE has taken the barrage of online attacks that I have. Even the “others” in the “Ninjutsu Community” who take A LOT of attacks themselves fire shots and attack me! Let me share with you a true story. About a year or so ago, there were 5 people, all of whom you would think are “mortal enemies”. They contacted me to talk to me about other “people/groups”. They all shared private screenshots of emails and social media messages of specific people/groups bashing me and trying to attack my school, my business, my book reviews, etc… Now, these emails and messages that were shared with me were of people that I didn’t like, but I didn’t think we were on bad terms either – and to be honest, I was a little taken back that these people/groups were organizing an attack towards me and my school. When these “mortal enemies” shared with me this knowledge, I did not say anything except thank you and went on my way. I get why they did it. “They” (the mortal enemies) did not want me ‘teaming up” with certain groups because it makes it more difficult for them to attack them. As they (the mortal enemies) and the people/groups that they were sharing emails/messages from, are not on good terms either.

Anyway, after all of that, I simply said thank you for the information. Never said anything and kept doing what I do. I’ve never stopped doing what I do, just because a closed minded person/group wants to attack myself or my school. I never have and I never will. I’m not weak. I am not part of any group. I stand on my own…

Why do they do this? All of these hateful people do this for two reasons. (1) They’re an insecure asshole. Unfortunately it’s not illegal to be an asshole. (2) They are threatened by my success. All of them have taken shots and me and here I am. Still standing and still in business. Not only am I still standing and still in business. I am still doing what I do with honor, respect, dignity, loyalty and integrity. Not one time have a made a post about a person who posted about me. Not one time have a made a video about a person who made a video about me. I just keep on keeping on.

Sure, I will always talk about “situations” and “experiences”. I am a teacher. So I always will. But I never address anyone by name or attack/bash any organization. There is no need for me to do that. Its weak… and I’m not weak.

So with all of that knowledge – why have you not attained the goals that you have wanted to attain? Look at all of the shit that I go through ever day! I am a transgender woman who teaches combat for a living, in a community full of very conservative people – whom many are very closed minded, hateful, racist, prejudice bigots. Trust me y’all – whatever it is that you want to do, it cannot be near as bad as what I go through everyday. So why have you not gone after what it is that you want? You scared…?

Why are you in the same place that you were in, when you were upset about the position that you are in? Why are you not succeeding? Why are you not going after the things that you want? Why are you settling for failure? Why are you not doing what you want to do? What is stopping you? What is your fucking problem?

The only thing we have on this planet is time. When your time is up, then you are up. You need to spend more time living a life rather than taking all of your time making a life. Life is too short.

Thank you again for all of you support! Untill next time, take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of budo.

5 Day Total Body Martial Arts Training Workout Program! | Increase Your Strength & Endurance!

In this video I give a tutorial lesson on how you can add a basic 5 day total body fitness workout to your martial arts training. This will help you increase strength and endurance as well as your heath and fitness levels!

As many of you know, I am HUGE on health, wellness, fitness and conditioning within the martial arts. To me, it makes ZERO sense to train in the martial arts and not have the physical ability to even do what it is that you are training to do. The secret is in training; pushing your mind, body and spirit to levels that it has never been! Learning how to take pain and keep moving forward! Making your body as strong as the sword, and the mind as sharp as the blade!

How To Properly Practice Your Kata | Martial Arts Training Techniques: Taijutsu, Kenpo, Karate

Learn how to improve your martial arts kata, using ancient training techniques from Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson of the Budo Ryu Kai (Budo Ryu Ninjutsu).

When you are training kata, you need to be able to “flow”, similar to the way that you breathe to circulate and flow air through the body. You also have to need to be able to “beat”, similar to the way that your heart beats to keep you alive. You need both the hard and the soft working together to properly practice your kata.

The Sad Truth in the World of Martial Arts Business & Self-Defense Industry

In this video, I discuss the sad truth in the world of the martial arts. Do not get me wrong, I love the martial arts and the ninjutsu community.  But that does not mean I love everything that’s in it.  There are things that are absolutely terrible in the world of martial arts and self defense business; and in this video, I detail 3 things that are the sad truth in the industry.

  • The majority of teachers cannot do what they claim they can do, and or, they cannot do what they teach.
  • The majority of teachers spend more time on the perception of their dojo’s image, rather than the development of their student’s skills.
  • The majority of teachers give out easy rank, to make more money. In doing this, it hinders the student’s development because the importance is not on the student; it is on the profit margin on the dojo.

I refuse to participate in the above 3 points.  The art, the transmission of the art and the relationships with the students and their development is what is important.
