Anshu Christa Jacobson — Reality Video (#005) “In Kansas City” Part 1


Budo Ryu Dojo (武道流 道場) 2012 Tenchijin-Ryaku no Maki; 天地人略の巻 Workshop

.

In December of 2012 the Budo Ryu held a Tenchijin ryaku Kuden training event.  The Tenchijin is the basics of Togaure-ryu Ninpo Taijutsu.

.

The Ten Ryaku no Maki (Heavenly Strategy Book) consists of Taihenjutsu Ukemi Gata (rolls, breakfalls, leaping) where one discovers means of using the body to fall safely.  From there, Kamae (postures/attitudes) are studied and applied with taihenjutsu.  The core of our training is then started by the Sanshin no Kata (Three Heart Forms) which teaches the body solo movement work.  Another portion which creates our foundation is the Kihon Happo (8 Combat Forms) which teaches our body to work with a partner.  From there, we study Muto Dori Gata (Empty Handed Sword Evasion) which focuses on putting all of the above training together and escaping from three basic sword cuts.

.

The Chi Ryaku no Maki (Earthly Strategy Book) consists of Hajutsu Kyuho (nine grab escapes/break out methods) where we begin looking at escape methods from a variety of grabs, throws, kicks or punches.  After a firm understanding of the Kihon Happo, a more indepth study is applied to Gyaku Waza (reversal techniques), Nage Waza (Throwing Techniques) and Shime Waza (Choking Techniques).

.

The Jin Ryaku no Maki (Man Strategy Book) consists of Suwari Gata (sitting forms) where one begins learning to use the above mentioned while in a seated posture.  Katate Dori (counters to single handed grabs) and Ryote Dori (counters to two handed grabs) are then studied to prepare for Haibu Yori (defending the rear) where we defend ourselves against attacks from behind.  Tsuki Uchi (counters against punching attacks) covers basic means of dealing with punches and is completed with Keri Ni Taisuru Uke (counters against kicks).  Growing in the training, the student moves to Tsuki To Keri Ni Taisuki Waza (counters to punch and kicks) which utilize dealing with these combo attacks.  Nage Kaeshi (throw counters) studies the means of throwing the one trying to throw you.  Finally, we go back to Muto Dori Gata and apply all of the Strategy Book techniques into dealing with the attacking blade.

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.

Ongyōjutsu (隠形術); Kannon-gakure

Anshu Christa Jacobson

 

Ongyōjutsu (隠形術) – Disappearing Techniques (隠形術)

KANNON-GAKURE (God Hiding)

Ongyojutsu (隠形術) is the art of disappearing and hiding (or what others say “invisibility” techniques). When talking about this form of hiding, usually the techniques such as (1) Kitsune-gakure (2) Uzura-gakure (3) Kannon-gakure (4) Tanuki-gakure and (5) Ukigusa-gakure are just some of the hiding techniques that come to mind when talking about this forms of Ongyōjutsu (隠形術) within classical ninjutsu.

In the photo above I am teaching the technique “Kannon-gakure” (a.k.a God Hiding). This is done within a house or residence of the enemy where you are trying to gain or take vital information. However, the photo above is me demonstrating the principals of the technique during the 2011 shinobi no mono stealth camp.

When you are doing this you are to be walking within the hallway, or residence, you are also to be wearing dark colors and to be walking in the shadows of the hallway as well. When you sense that the enemy is walking near, you stay within the shadows and press your body up against the wall.

Cover your mouth with your sleeve of your jacket and breathe as little as possible, this is because when they walk by you, they are so close that they will be able to feel your breathe on them, so total concentration is needed!

Lower you face into your sleeve, and to a rhythm of your racing heart silently chant the following:

— “On Ah Ni Chi Ma Ri Shi E I So Wa Ka” —

It’s written that you have to say this “within” your mouth, which can be translated as saying this in your head. Clearly if you say it out loud they will spot you and then kill you. It is also said that this is the mantra that you say before you go on the mission, so that there is no need to say it when you are on a mission. However; the usage of this is key as it makes sense that you would say it when on the mission in your head to calm your nerves and anxiety that you are feeling as the man that wants to kill you is full armed and walking within inches of your body.

This is to be done wearing the classical shinobi garb (shinobi shōzoku 忍び装束) and also making use of the zukin (hood) as this will help aid cover the natural tones and silhouette of the human form. However this can also be done wearing dark colors as well and using one of the basic tools of the ninja the “sanjaku tengui”.

In this photo above I was not wearing the shinobi shōzoku (忍び装束) but utilized what I had so that I could demonstrate the use of this technique to the students.

In the photo above I am teaching at the 2011 Shinobi Stealth camp the technique “Uzura-gakure” (a.k.a Quail Hiding). Usually this is done at night or right as it is getting dark so that you can use the shadows to your advantage.

When you are in a garden or area with natural foliage, wrap both of your arms over your head and crouch down like a quail shape ball to resemble a garden stone so that you would be over looked if someone gazed through the area.

This is to be done wearing classical shinobi garb (shinobi shōzoku 忍び装束) and also making use of the zukin (hood) as this will help aid cover the natural tones and silhouette of the human form. However this can also be done wearing dark colors as well and using one of the basic tools of the ninja the “sanjaku tengui”.

In this photo above I was not wearing the shinobi shōzoku (忍び装束) but utilized what I had so that I could demonstrate the use of this technique to the students, as you can see, it still works!

I hope that you all enjoy today’s lesson!

Shinobi-iri; Ko Ashi – Small Step

Anshu Christa Jacobson

Anshu Christa Jacobson demonstrates the stealth technique "ko-ashi"

 

Photo taken from the 2011 Shinobi Stealth Camp!

SHINOBI-IRI (忍び入り;stealth entering methods)
HOKOJUTSU (歩行術; art of walking techniques)
KO ASHI (小足;small step)

Ko Ashi (small step) this is part of “hokojutsu” (art of walking techniques) and also is trained and classified as “senkojutsu” (art of infiltrating walking techniques).

This is a small stabbing step that is used to move silently through shallow water, high grassy area or dry leaves. The objective of the technique is to get the foot beneath the surface without causing any unnatural noise.

Make sure that you maintain a low hip position keeping your hips pointed at the targeted position. As you step down, keep your toe pointed straight down and penetrate through the foliage and onto the surface. As your toes hit the ground, slightly lower your heal to the ground place your weight on that foot. From here, relax and move to the next step; this is ko-ashi.

The artistic image is that of a crane walking and picking it’s way through the wild terrain.

I hope that you all enjoy today’s lesson!

Goshiki mai – Five Colored Rice of the Ninja

Soke Christa Jacobson

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson

GOSHIKI-MAI

Secret Messages were conveyed with the use of elaborate codes that would be overlooked by anyone but the recipient. The ninja’s ploy included rice grains dyed different colors (goshiki-mai) as well as knotted rope (yuinawa-moji) as well as letters that only their allies could understand.

In understanding the “Goshiki-mai” (Five-color rice) Rice grains were dyed blue, yellow, red, black or purple and arranged in different combinations or patterns. With this technique, the ninja could make over 100 different codes.

There is a new Historical Ninjutsu video being released this week on this topic from myself and Antony Cummins that you can all see and understand these old methods of secretly passing information.

The lesson today comes from my own personal collection and study of these documents. I hope that this helps with all of your training! Take Care, Be Safe and Good luck in your Journey of Budo!

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Sunshine

Soke Christa Jacobson

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson

Photo Taken – 6.22.2011
Sunshine,…

Yesterday I went to the park to enjoy the day. It was such a beautiful day, so I figured I would make the best of it and figure out a way for me to get things done while enjoying the sunshine.

********************

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
Dalai Lama

********************

I had quite a few emails so I decided instead of answering them on the internet (because I hate typing) that I would get the camera and go down to the lake and just answer the emails there.

I was a wonderful time, the emails were great too with many compliments and questions about training with the Budo Ryu I sat there and answered the emails for about 45 mins, till my battery ran down. I will get this video up and published on the website so that you all can see it as well!

(I will warn you the wind was really bad, so some sections you might not hear me that well).

I needed to get work done, but still wanted to enjoy nature and the day. Happiness is what we are all looking for. Do what you can do to make yourself happy, at the end of the day, that is all that we have.

Happiness and love helps you see things clearly, Hate and revenge clouds your vision.

It was said that hate is like a double edge blade, as you cast it on the people around you, you are also cutting yourself with it as well.

Remember that Budo is not about being better than anyone else. It is about being better than what you were yesterday, and if you are not in balance, if you are not happy, you cannot help others become happy.

I hope that this helps you today as well as your training.

Take Care, Be Safe &
Good Luck in your Journey of Budo.

“Just as the ninja operated in the shadows centuries ago in Japan, a new master of the art again comes from the darkness. Training you has been my greatest accomplishment, and it is clear the student has surpassed her master.”

Kobayashi Ichiro; 20th Soke Tomo Ryu
(The day he awarded Anshu Menkyo Kaiden & Sokeship)

“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
Sir Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett
(“Terry” Pratchett – English Novelist)

*********************

Art is the desire of a person express them self, to display and share the reactions of their personality to the world.

In this photo I wanted to use the contrast of the room so that people would look at the arts behind me, yet keeping my body / silhouette directly of the middle of the picture, to help with the “IN / YO” of the photograph.

Just as the screen behind me shows the dramatic difference between tiger and dragon, the photo also shows the contrast between light and dark. This in itself is also a major lesson of ninjutsu.

The screen behind me was painted by Kano Tanyu in the edo period (1602-1674) The piece is called Dragon and Waves; Tiger among the Bamboo.

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson.

Take Care, Be Safe and Good Luck in your Journey of Budo
