Top 5 Ninja Principals of Stealth / Silent Walking | Ninjutsu Martial Arts Training Techniques

In this video, I teach a step by step tutorial of the top ninja principals of stealth walking, a.k,a Shinobi Aruki. Many times people see ninjutsu training as this very specific thing, when in reality, all ninjutsu training if flexible and fluid.  The Top 5 Ninja Principals of Stealth Walking Are:

 

(1) Understand Bodyweight Transfer During Motion.

(2) Control Your Breathing.

(3) Stay Relaxed and Flexible.

(4) Train in Various Elements To Enhance Body Control.

(5) Learn To Adapt To Each Situation & Element.

 

In the classic ninjutsu text called the Bansenshukai, Fujibayashi Yasutake says:

 

“Ignorant ninja are not aware of this principal but directly stick to ancient ways and do not even know the simplest of facts…”

 

“Its folly to see something as unchangeable and stick to an old method without realizing that things keep changing and are in flux.”

 

– Fujibayashi Yasutake | Bansenshukai; 1676

 

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).

Haters & Trolls (#0001) – Recognizing an Individual’s Character / Weakness

NINJUTSU LESSON!
Please Read all Text before watching video.
——————————————————
NINJUTSU – NINSO O SHIRU KOTO:
Recognizing an Individual’s Character / Weakness
——————————————-———–
Judging any threat, in any form, is a skill of the shinobi. Being able to read your opponent and understand the way that they think and act is crucial in the mastery of ninjutsu.

This goes along the same traditional teachings of the Sanshin (3 martial hearts). The three martial hearts are: Mind, Body & Spirit. Understand your opponent in all phases: Mentally, Physically and Emotionally. From this understanding you can then develop a proper form of action, in any situation.

In the video below Mr. Chafin gives a great lesson in understanding the thought process of cyber bullies, online trolls and haters. Although we all in the martial arts have to face the fact that someone sometime is going to talk about us. As teachers, we have to take these situations and use them as lessons for our students.

Mr. Chafin used to be a professional troll, yes it is true. He was paid to falsely advertise and tear down major business and was part of a internet world that many of us have only heard of.

After many years of this, he felt that he wanted to find something of worth in his life and he found myself and the Budo Ryu. From here he has now found balance in his life and is using his knowledge of hate and cyber crime; a life that he was accustom too; To help educate students of the martial arts and others on how they can identify and understand this type of irrational and malicious behavior.

This is just a short introduction video; but I think it is a great lesson for all students of the Budo Ryu. Especially since 80% of the Budo Ryu trains in some form of digital media online.

Make sure that you stick it out to the end! Enjoy the lesson of NINSO O SHIRU KOTO:

Koka Ryu Kempo – Sankei (Three Tools) 甲賀流拳法 – 三 形 – 拳法, 空手

This is some of the video footage from our Koka-ryu Kempo Sankei Workshop 2012

In the training of this event we looked at the Koka-ryu Sankei; which translates out as “three tools” and are three specific weapons used in Kempo, to help train the body. These three weapons are the Kama (sickle), Tanto (knife) and Tonbo (short stick). This is not just for the knowledge and application of the weapon, but to help train the budoka’s taijutsu for better empty hand kempo application as well.

Koka-ryu Kempo is one of the 7 Warrior Traditions of the Budo Ryu; School of the Warrior Way as the training goes in depth within the 7 traditions of the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo!

The Budo Ryu is dedicated to teaching traditional samurai bujutsu and authentic ninjutsu. To do this the Budo Ryu has 7 Warrior Traditions that it teaches from:

7 WARRIOR TRADITIONS OF THE SCHOOL:
* Koka Ryu Kempo (甲賀流拳法)
* Tenjin Ryū Jujutsu (天神流柔術)
* Tomo Ryu Shinobijutsu (戸猛流忍術)
* Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū (英信流居合術)
* Koto Ryu Koppojutsu (虎倒流骨法術)
* Gyokko-Ryū Kosshijutsu (玉虎流骨指術)
* Togakure-ryū Ninpo Taijutsu (戸隠流忍法体術)

35 METHODS OF SRATEGY – HEIHO PART 5

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson teaching Heiho at Hombu Dojo

35 INSTRUCTIONS ON SRATEGY – PART 4
Hyoho Sanju go kajoMiyamoto Musashi; 1614
_________________________________________

In 1614 two years before he wrote the Gorin no sho (Book of the 5 Rings) Musashi wrote a work called “Thrity-five Instructions on Strategy”. It was written for Lord Hosokawa, by his guest Miyamoto Musashi. The Gorin no sho (Book of the 5 Rings) is considered a more elabora te piece off of this work.

To truly understand these teachings and the nature of this text is extremely difficult as Musashi used special terms and verbal meaning to express his respect for Lord Hosokawa, which is very hard to understand the exact meaning to translate into English.

In the translations I am using the terms that was used in the Gorin no sho (Book of the 5 Rings) as they are the more popular terms for identifying Miyamoto Musashi’s works.

STRATEGY NINE
(KNOWING THETHREE LEVELS OF STRATEGY)

Someone who adopts guard positions in strategy and displays different guard positions while handling the sword sometimes slowly, sometimes fast practices strategy of a low level.  Someone who has refinement in strategy and who appears magnificent die to elegant bearing, practices at an intermediate level.  The supreme strategy will appear neither strong nor weak; nether slow nor fast, neither magnificent nor bad, but broad, straight and calm.  You should examine this well

(*note* in the test musashi uses the term “ge”, “chu” and “jo” when using these terms in expression, they are more than just low medium and high they also refer to level of skill or quality.)

STRATEGY TEN

(A GRADUATED CORD MEASURE)

You must always have a graduated cord measure in your mind.  If you measure your opponent by adjusting the cord to him, you will be able to ascertain clearly his strengths and weakness, his straightness and crookedness, where he is relaxed and where he is tense.  With this measure you must size up all aspects of your opponent – round, square, short, crooked or straight.  You should examine this well.

STRATEGY ELEVEN

(THE PATHWAY OF THE SWORD)

Without knowing the pathway of the sword, you cannot handle it feely.  You cannot properly slash you opponent if you put too much force into it, if you do not have a sense of the back and the side of the blade, if you shale the sword around like a knife or a spoon for serving rice.  You must train in hitting you opponent well, always knowing the pathway of the sword and moving it calmly, following its weight.

I hope that you all enjoy your lessons today from the Hyoho Sanju go kajo. Thank you all for your support! I wish you all the best in your journey of the arts!

Nude Art – Artistic Modeling – “Victim”

Nude Art - Artistic Modeling

Anshu Christa Jacobson - Nude Artistic Mode

Photo: VICTIM
Model: Christa Jacobson

Many of you know that I am a model and also do “nude” modeling. The reason that I separate the modeling from the nude modeling as a description is because so many people have a problem with anyone that is nude.

Nude art is a work depicting the vision of an artist working with the human form naked. Be it paintings, photographs, or mixed media, the nude art is a term attempting to give an artistic depiction of a nude human form. Some of the earlier artists who used nude models for their art were Michelangelo, Botticelli and DaVinci.

Above is an artistic piece that was digitally enhanced to portray the artist expression.  The name of the art work is called “Victim”.  The original picture comes from “Artistic Expression; Book One” which can be found on Amazon.com.

If any of you want to follow my artistic blog, you can find it here:

I hope that you enjoy the artistic photography, and see the beauty in the human expression of art.  Thank you all for your support within the martial arts, as well as the human expression of art called life.

I wish you all the best.

STRATEGY EIGHT
(REGARDING STATE OF MIND)

The mind should be neither solemn nor agitated, neither pensive nor fearful; it should be straight and ample. This is the state of mind that should be sought after. The will should not be heavy, but the depth of ones awareness should be; in this way you make your mind like water that reacts appropriately to shifting situations. Whether it is a drop or an ocean with blue depths, it is water, you should examine this well.

I hope that you all enjoy your lessons today from the Hyoho Sanju go kajo. Thank you all for your support! I wish you all the best in your journey of the arts!

STRATEGY SEVEN
(SIZING UP THE MA)

Different schools give different instructions on the way to assess the “ma”, but I find that they tend to fix or rigidify your strategy; that is why I advise you not to take into consideration what you have learned before.

Whatever the discipline may be, it is repeated exercises that you arrive at the point of being able to assess the “ma”.  In general you should think that when your sword reaches your opponent, he can also reach you.  When you want to kill an opponent, you have a tendency to forget your own body.  You must reflect well on this.
Let us recall that “ma” is not exactly distance but is description of the space-time of a distance / relationship.  “Ma” also refers to the action of the mind by which this spatial and temporal phenomenon is grasped.
(*Note, in this text Musashi is doubtless alluding to the habits acquired by Lord Hosokawa in the Yagyu-ryu*)

I hope that you all enjoy your lessons today from the Hyoho Sanju go kajo. Thank you all for your support! I wish you all the best in your journey of the arts.

STRATEGY FOUR; (POSTURE) — It is appropriate to hold the head neither lowered nor raised. The shoulders are neither raised nor contracted. The belly is forward but not the chest. The buttocks are not drawn in; the knees are not fixed. The posture of strategy should be well examined so that it also becomes one’s ordinary posture.

STRATEGY FIVE; (MOVEMENT OF THE FEET) — To move from one place to another, you slightly raise your toes and push off from the heel, forcefully. According to the situation, you move your feet with a large or small step, slowing or rapidly, but always in the manner of walking. There are three ways of moving that is necessary to avoid: Jumping, Floating Steps and Heavy Stomping. The essential instruction related to moving from place to place is to alternate the movement of the two feet, positive foot then negative foot (In/Yo), which means you should not just move one foot. When you slash, when you back away, when you parry, you must always move the right and left feet alternately. You must never move only one foot. This should be examined with care.
(*Note, this is the same as the Gorin no sho, in the scroll of water*)

STRATEGY SIX; (THE WAY OF LOOKING) —Your look must be broad and ample. Looking and seeing are two different things. Look powerfully, see gently. It is necessary to look at what is in the distance as well as something that is close; know that what is close is something that is of distance – this is essential for strategy. It is fundamental in strategy to know the sword of the adversary without looking at it. You must exercise well in this. Whether it is a matter of strategy on the individual scale or strategy on the large scale, the way of looking is the same. It is essential to look to both sides without moving your eyes. But without preparation, you will not be able to achieve this way of looking at the time of combat. This is why you had better study what I am writing here; you must accustom yourself to looking all the time in this way in order to be able to keep this way of looking in any situation. Examine this well.
(*Note, this is the same as the Gorin no sho, in the scroll of water*)

I hope that you all enjoy your lessons today from the Hyoho Sanju go kajo. Thank you all for your support! I wish you all the best in your journey of the arts.

Happiness In Life

Happiness in Life

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

Photo Taken: 10.18.2011
After class at the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Hombu.

Yesterday’s classes at the Hombu Dojo made me realize how lucky I am to be able to do what I love to do everyday and make a living at it. I mean that is everyone’s dream isn’t it? To be able to do what you love to do, express who you are to the world and make a living doing it? The unfortunate thing is that not many get this opportunity or maybe,… not many are willing to take the chance.

It was said once by Confucius “Choose a job that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”. He was right. I get the pleasure of everyday waking up and spending the rest of the day dedicated to the authentic ninjutsu and traditional samurai bujutsu and help teach the martial arts to the students of the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo.

Sure; there is work that has to be done; we make video downloads, shinobi no mono magazine, DVD’s for the Ninjutsu Super Store, and uploads and updates to the Budo Ryu Online Dojo as well as keeping in contact with all of our students and supports with our myspace page, facebook page and youtube channel. The greatest part that I find with what I do is that I never get frustrated at all because of what I am doing, I always feel like I want to do more than what I have; and to me that is a good thing!

You only have one life to live, live it to be happy, and don’t be scared to be yourself, that is what is going to really make you happy. Happiness starts within and then it is expressed outward. Just like art.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Illusion

Soke Christa Jacobson

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson

 

Photo Taken – 6.23.2011
Illusion,…

Illusion of Separation; How many wars have been started from a need for one side to be “right” and to make the other “wrong.”

Ancient cultures talk of our connection to each other, yet we treat each other with such little regard. They teach that when you go beneath the surface of “man” you find the true essence of who we are, intertwined at the deepest most fundamental way.

This is the only way to bring true happiness, look inside and find the answers. The problem is people do not want to look on the inside, because the inside is where they keep all of their pain, and fear. So they turn to others for answers, they assume that the one that is talking is right, this in itself is an illusion.

It is quite possible that the one that is not talking just teaching, is actually saying more than the one that is talking.

The body has 7 Chakra. Chakra are said to be “force centers” or whorls of energy permeating, from a point on the physical body and are considered the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies.

The “Light” chakra, located in the center of the forehead deals with insight, but is blocked by illusion.

This chakra helps you gain knowledge, but it is blocked by things that “you think” is right. This is an illusion. You think that your opinion is correct, when in truth, it is not. It is something that you came up with, formulated some reason for thinking that it is real, when in fact, it is not, it is false thought that you bring into yourself.

The greatest illusion in the martial arts, is the illusion of the five elements, and how they are separate. The things that you think are different, are actually one in the same.

If you open your mind, and think, you will see that all of the elements are connected. Even metal is simply earth, just refined.

Don’t be dis-connected from the things that gives you the most joy in your life, spend more time with the ones that give you the most joy. This is another way of opening the chakra and enjoying your life.

If you know that ‘this’ is going to place you in a bad mood, than don’t do “this”,.simply do and be around those that make you happy and a better person.

Not for sure if anyone of you understood the lesson today, but if at least one person out there, understands, than at least I touched the life of one.
