5 Key Points To Goshinjutsu (Reality Based Self Defense) Martial Arts Training Techniques (Budo)

In this video, I explain 5 key points to training in goshinjutsu (reality based self-defense) that many people over look when training in martial arts/self-defense techniques.

.

The five areas that I talk about in this video are:

  • How our goshinjutsu (self defense) is different than most martial arts.
  • Difference between what is “probable” and what is “possible”.
  • Importance of physical fitness in self-defense training.
  • Mentality of Situational Awareness. (Perception-Process-Plan)
  • Know the laws in your local area.

Online Ninja: ALL This Knowledge & NO SKILLS | Historical Ninjutsu Martial Arts Training Techniques

In this video, I express my concern with this growing “Online Ninja Community” that has all of this knowledge but no skills.  This is a very dangerous direction for the ninjutsu community because “the way” is in training.  The purpose of training is to be able to defend yourself, the ones you love and the ones that cannot fight for themselves.  Any REAL practitioner of ninjutsu would tell you, we find our balance through the study and practice of ancient warfare.  There needs to be a balance with study and practice… mind and body…

.

In the modern era, we live in a time where if you do not have the answer readily available either online or otherwise, it is fake or not true.  This in itself is a very dangerous way of thinking because these arts were written a certain way, for only a select few to be able to have the knowledge – as long as they were willing to train to obtain the warrior skills needed to be able to use the knowledge.

The Difference Between Hard Blocks & Soft Blocks | Kenpo, Kempo, Karate, Training Techniques

In this video I discuss the difference between using hard style blocks within self-defense as oppose to soft style blocks. Afterwards I teach a technique that utilizes soft blocks from 1 of our 7 warrior traditions – Koka-ryu Kempo.

There are many ways to block/defend and oncoming attack. There is no single correct way. There are many ways, all dependent on the situation. To have a high level of skill within Kempo, you need to understand and master all of the various defensive/blocking maneuvers so that you can counter an oncoming attack efficiently and effectively.  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).

Understanding the Historical Use of the Ninjato (忍刀) Ninja Sword History | Ninjutsu Martial Arts

In this video, I explain what the ninjato is, as taught from the Tomo-ryu tradition.  There are many koryu in Japan, and all of them will have a different explanation as to what things were and how they were used in ancient Japan.  On the scrolls of the Tomo-ryu, it is very clear, that the “ninjato” are the “blades of the ninja” that were specifically modified to help them on their mission.
.
Many times people see the kanji “nin” (忍) and following it would be the kaji for blade, sword, spear, bow and arrow, etc – and they automatically assume it is “ninja”.  Many times it is NOT “ninja” at all. In fact, the majority of the time they are talking about concealed or hidden weapons. Remember the kanji “nin” (忍) is associated with ninja, but it all means hidden, concealed, stealth, endurance and perseverance.  So you have to understand the context of the scroll and why the scroll was written to understand the use of the weapon.
.
This is why the kuden and transmission is so important. As Soke of this tradition, it is my responsibility to make sure that the true history and tradition is passed on correctly to the next generation.
.

Zen Philosophy: In a Beginners Mind… | Ninjutsu Martial Arts Training Techniques (Ninpo)

In this video, I discuss the zen philosophy:

“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.”
– Shunryu Suzuki

In studying the old ways of the samurai and ninja, we need to understand and dedicate ourselves to honor, loyalty, discipline and code.  These things unfortunately are not popular actions of today and generally only talked about in old stories.  Here, at the Budo Ryu Kai, these actions hold great meaning towards our study of “the way”…

Flexibility of the Mind: DO NOT GIVE TOO MUCH | Martial Arts / Self-Defense Training Techniques

In this video, I discuss the importance of understanding the flexibility of the mind.  Too many times people give more energy towards one realm than the other. As martial artist we need to find balance in all realms. It does not matter if it is the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual realm; we need to give it – its proper place and proper energy to be able to see the whole picture clearly, find balance in life, as well as properly defend ourselves and the ones that we love.
