Not for sure why I have to openly discuss my personal life.  This has nothing to do with the instruction of the martial arts or any of my other professions.  However; I am an open and honest person that does not have any mean or cruel intentions.  And for anyone to constantly belittle and harassment about my gender is hate.  Hate at any level should not be tolerated.
.
I do not force my personal opinions or personal beliefs on my students in anyway.  My job as a martial arts teacher is not to show them their way.  It is to help guide them through their journey.
.
Any person regardless of Race, Religion, Sexual Preference, Gender, Hobbies, Political Stand, Conservative or Liberal as long as they have a good heart and are willing to be open minded and train, I would love to work with them in the art that I teach…Budo Ryu: School of the Warrior Way.

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.

The time of talk, is in the past. Cowards and those of low skill and rank will dishonor themselves and the arts as they attempt to manipulate others opinions never showing any high level of skill, high level of strength or high level of ability in the warrior traditions.

A true master will let actions speak louder than words. They simply open the door and show you the way.

Sanjaku-tenugui (三尺手拭い)

Soke Christa Jacobson

Picture Above:
Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson teaching Tomo ryu methods (戸猛流) utilizing various ninki (忍器; ninja tools) at the 2012 Tomo-ryu Shinobi Keiko (戸猛流忍 稽古).
.
Here she teaches various ways of using the Sanjaku-tenugui (三尺手拭い; 3 ft cloth) to aid in shinobi (忍び) missions.
.
A Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton and was a common item during the Sengoku Jidai (戦国時代) and the Edo Jidai (江戸時代) for anyone of any social class to carry as it could be used as a head wrap, washcloth, dishcloth, headband, souvenir or decoration and as a head covering in Kendo (剣道).
.
It is typically about 35 by 90 centimeters in size (approx: 1 1/2 – 3ft in length), plain weaved and is almost always dyed with some pattern.  The shinobi (忍び) would take advantage of this common item and use it to aid them on missions in a variety of ways such as:  creating a shinobi zukin (忍び頭巾; ninja hood) climbing various objects, tying various objects together such as doors, people, tools and weaponry.

Songs of the Way

In many forms of budo; doka (道歌), or “songs of the way” are presented to help teach the deeper meaning essence of the art; the Tenjin-ryu school of jujutsu (1 of the 7 warrior traditions of the Budo Ryu) is no different. These doka are arranged in the 5-7-5-7-7 syllable pattern of traditional Japanese waka (和歌) verse.

DOKO ICHI; 道歌 一

Shin no bu wa
Fude yak kuchi niwa
Subekarazu
Kotobure naseba
Kami wa yurusaza

Self Empowerment – Anshu Christa Jacobson

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor and catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”- Mark Twain; 1835-1910

I love this quote, and it is how I live my life. Many times I get emails from people that are not students of the Budo Ryu that ask questions like; what does your students think about training with a woman? What do they think about your modeling and nude art? It is like you can feel that they want to make sure that they “fit in” or “agree on” the same things as the people here in the dojo. My only question to them is why? What do you think? That is all that matters.

I think they (my students here) see me more like another mom; you know? Honestly I think that they would all tell you that they do not think about any of those things because they never come up in training.

I know the world sees the modeling, the makeup, artistic nude photography, etc, etc. But I just be myself; not trying to impress anyone, just teach the arts in the hombu. I tell all of my kids, they need to live their life to be happy. Happiness is different for us all. They know that I love modeling, fashion, poetry, brush art, sports as well as artistic nude modeling / photography; it is part of who I am and what makes me happy. So they accept my hippie ass as part of who I am just as I accept all of what they do to make themselves happy as part of which they are. This too is a major lesson in budo, acceptance. Accept the fact that people are different, and even if they are not like you, accept that you cannot change that, and love them for who they are, not hate them for who they are not.

All of us look for self-empowerment, to be able to stand up and live our life the way that we want to be happy, but to do this you have to stay away from the things and people that are tearing you down and belittling your ambitions. Small people try to do that, but the really great ones are the ones that want to help you become what it is that you aspire to be, so do not surround yourself with people that are trying to tear you down, these people who are saying that it cannot be done, should not interrupt the ones that are doing it. Today live your life, don’t just be alive. There is a difference.

Thank you all for your support.

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

The Hyodokyo – The 28 Mirror Ways of Strategy; By Miyamoto Musashi

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

 

Picture taken 11.2011
Anshu Christa Jacobson
Budo Ryu Hombu Dojo

This morning I was getting ready, and my daughter asked me why I write a “to-do” list every morning when I drink my coffee. I told her because it helps me stay focused on the things that I need to do. She looked at me and shrugged; then went off to watch Phineas and Ferb.

The only way I feel to achieve constant progression is with the proper strategy. This is not just in war, but if life. Keep in mind I am saying “constant” progression, meaning you are succeeding in one area over a long period of time. To do this, I feel you have to devise the correct strategy and then carry out the smaller tasks so that you can then complete the larger objective.

Everyday I wake up; I make a to-do list. Even if some of the same things that I write on the list were on yesterday’s list; I write again, because today is today and what I need to get done is today; this also is part of understanding the principals of Shibumi-do (下味道).

In 1605 Miyamoto Musashi wrote The Hyodokyo (The Mirror of the Way of Strategy) was Miyamoto Musashi’s first piece of work. These 28 strategies I read and utilize all of the time in my daily objectives in all realms of life. These strategies written by Musashi was when he was between the ages of 21 and 24 (Two copies are extant still in the present day) and was his first written work on strategy, before the Gorin no sho (book of the 5 rings).

Clearly anyone reads this even if they do not have martial training, can understand that these are strategies of war. But a marital artist should read them as strategies of life. As you read them, understand we do not carry a sword, so what is the same meaning of all of the statements in the present day? How can we take these great strategies and apply them today? Everything has meaning, strategy, principals, study them, contemplate on them, and you will find the answer.

THE HYODOKYO; 1605
The 28 Mirror Ways of Strategy; By Miyamoto Musashi

(01) The state of mind of strategy.
(02) The way of looking.
(03) The way of holding the sword.

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.
