A Real Master…

Anshu Christa Jacobson

“When things are going the way that you want them to go, it is easy to be calm and happy about your life and portray a positive image. But this is not true test of happiness or character. The true test of happiness and character comes from the moments that you stay calm, maintain a positive spirit and balanced character within the face of danger, adversity and ridicule. If you can maintain your character in these moments, this is the test of happiness and the honest expression of a real master.”

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)

DOKA
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

(TRANSLATION)

True Bu (do)
Cannot be described by
The brush or by the mouth –
The gods will not allow you
To rely upon words!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s lesson, I wish you all the best in your journey of Budo.

Ninja Fighting Arts? Ninpo Taijutsu; Did it really Exist?

 

Ninja researcher and historian Antony Cummins of the Historical Ninjutsu Research Team has made this video on the reality of the ninja fighting art.  When I watched the video it found a lot of the points interesting and thought that I would share with all of you.

I hope that all of you are doing well, thank you for the support, take care and be safe.

Taking it from the Rear!

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson teaching Street Survival and Self Defense at Hombu Dojo.

 

TAKING IT FROM THE REAR
Understanding a Rear Attack

Everyday I teach students kata and waza that has been passed down for centuries within the Nana Musha Den (7 Warrior Traditions of the Budo Ryu).  I also stress that kata is a form of strategy and should not be looked at as law.  One should look at the strategies and principals of the kata and then apply this to many other situations that can arise from any form of mental, physical or emotional attacks; this is the essence and truth of goshinjutsu.

When training with kata, one of the training drills that I have my students do is to execute the kata from all angles; from all 10 directions of the Happo-sabaki (4 directions (+), 4 directions (X), 2 directions (Tenchi / Heaven and Earth; Up and down).

The general rule of thumb in street survival that my father told me years ago is this, “It is what you don’t see, that will kill you”.  Simply put; know your surroundings, understand the terrain and what can and cannot happen every time that you go somewhere.  Know the shoes and clothing that you wear and how you can move in and out of them!

Ladies if you are like me, I wear high heels everywhere I go all of the time (yes I do, don’t judge me J) how fast can you get out of your heels, do you practice that? ; and if not why?; you should!  I can pivot 180 degrees in platform high heels and get out of them to get my feet stable on the ground in less than a second; and even of you don’t wear heels all of the time, only on special occasions, you still should be able to do this, because a threat is not going to happen when you expect it!  They are predators and you are their prey and when you let your guard down, that is when they will attack!

How many times do you see men that claim to teach woman’s self defense but do not teach the fact that most women do not wear the same types of clothing and footwear when they are out and about on the town or coming and going from work.  This is so important as being able to move within your clothing that you wear and is extremely crucial when talking about rear attacks as most women’s clothing are more constrictive and our footwear does not aid in lateral movement.

This also goes to men as well who wear dress clothes and shoes while walking into an environment where the traction of those shoes does not aid well, such as a damp or wet concrete parking lot.  More than likely the attacker has rubber gripping shoes and you will have to move in your clothing and footwear in that element. You guys also should place on some dress shoes and try this and understand how your body moves in this type of situation.  Remember knowledge is very lightweight and you can take it anywhere; remember that.

But this article is not for woman’s self defense, or formal footwear; it is for all martial artist of all styles to know and understand that whatever art you are studying, to master it, you have to be able to take all of the kata and apply them from all directions, this is not just knowledge of the arts, this is wisdom within application!

I understand that “fights” will come from the front, as the attacker or opponent wants to beat you up.  But life and death threats more than likely will not come from the front at all, they will blind side you, come from the rear and not only take all that you have, but take you along with them.  If you enjoy looking into your children’s eyes and spending time with you family, than I suggest you do yourself and them a favor and learn how to take any attack from any direction!

Hope that this opens doors to all of you martial artist out there; remember there is no art better than another, find the one that you enjoy and the teacher that you trust and you will find the enlightenment that you seek in budo.

I wish you all the best, take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of budo!
