MONOMI – Shinobi Hand Torch

Soke Christa Jacobson

 

MONOMI – Shinobi Hand Torch
Photo above: Anshu with a “Monomi” or ninja scouting hand torch.

When on a night mission within a residence or building, the Shinobi had a small hand torch that they used to be able to see within or to see into. This would help aid in “stealing in”. It was small, easily concealable and just as easy to put out in case they felt they were seen.

Split a cedar board to get a piece of 4 or 5 Sun (12 or 15 cm). Apply a little sulphur on the tip and hold it out. This is called Monomi Scouting Torch and used by the shinobi to look inside a window or a knothole.

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.

Historical Ninjutsu Research Team Video #2 – Shoninki – Ninja Assassination

The Historical Ninjutsu Research Team has made a short demonstration from the authentic ninja manual of the Shoninki’s english translation called “True Path of the Ninja“, one of the most prominent historical text that we have left from the feudal era of Japan.

In this video you will see 3 waza (techniques) demonstrated:

Waza #1 – is the actual kata /waza from the historical manuals.

Waza #2 – is a henka or variation based off of the historical manuals to show that there are many different ways to interpret the translations and many ways that you can change the technique to fit different aspects to the same strategy.
Waza #3 – This technique is actually a “off shoot” or “similar” situation from team video #1 (sword thief) in that video people really got all upset and started gossiping over something as little as the rope of the swords. They wanted me on Top,..They did not want me on Bottom,..sorry I meant the rope needs to be under me, not on me ;). So waza #3 is to show humor with the training, I hope that people can see the humor in it, the previous technique really is about feeling the rope being pulled and then acting accordingly. As the technique goes on you will see that it is also a henka based of the translation of this technique in this video.

The Shoninki was written in 1682 by Natori Masatake of the Kishu-ryu school of ninjutsu. Although the text is not very long, it reflects a certain way of thinking about ninjutsu, which is most interesting to anyone who wishes to learn more than just techniques. It is also important to keep in mind that the text was written for a selected contemporary audience. Without commentary and interpretation of the text, much would be lost. Therefore, a great translation is needed to understand the depth of the shoninki and the teachings of the kishu ryu school of ninjutsu.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK – TRUE PATH OF THE NINJA FOR ANY REAL SERIOUS NINJUTSU PRACTITIONER.

I hope that you all enjoy the video promo!

Good Luck in your Journey of Budo.
