Anshu Christa Jacobson - Eyes of the Warrior

Bushi no Me – “Eyes of the Samurai”
(sight and insight)

A warrior does not see things in an ordinary way. A warrior has trained their mind and spirit to process the impulses from a highly refined manner. A warrior does not focus on one thing, but sees one thing.

To the warrior, the ideas of “eye sight” and “sight” are different, there are many different methods of sight and insight with a warrior.

NIKUGEN (Naked Eye)
TENGEN (Neutral Eye)
EGEN (Interpretive Eye)
SHINGEN / HOGEN (Compassionate Eye)

The training for all methods of warrior sight and insight for the samurai is called “Bushi no men Rensho” The complete understanding of these concepts will be found in Chapter Three of Budo Ryu Kai; School of War. This book details all of the fundamentals of the Budo Ryu Kai as well as the fundamentals and basics of all Budo.

This book is a must have for any practitioner of the Japanese martal arts and is to be released later this year!

I hope that you all enjoy the lesson!

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

Vulnerability & Invulnerability

“When the warlord is prepared for battle, he is first into the realm of combat and does not back down because of fear and doubt.”

“His fortitude is fixed and his fighting will be done with ease if he understand the way.”

“The simplest way to humble, humiliate and debase your enemy is to cut him off from his supplies. If he is mighty and still comes forward, his avenue of escape will be that more difficult to remain when he cant supply his troops with food.”

“NEVER permit the enemy to know where your attack will be coming from, and never sacrifice one thing that will protect your village,….do his with deception.”

“A large force cannot easily over power a smaller force of the smaller force is more skilled in the arts of war. There are many times that a smaller unit of specially trained soldiers can wreak havoc on the enemy by fighting in the shadows. These hit and fun tactics take a toll on a larger force. By using these methods of war, the warlord can find the weaknesses and strengths in the enemy’s army.”

“In war there are no constants, nothing stays the same, this is the same with war as well as life.”

(my personal interpretations and research taken from Sun Tzu’s book; (Art of War)

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

I hope that these words from Sun Tzu can help you on your journey of the arts. be Safe my friends.
