Life Lessons from an Courtesan | Escort, Stripper


Martial Arts lesson from a 40 year old escort / courtesan / stripper.
Today’s Ninjutsu Lesson | Read in Full

There is an old saying:
“Never judge a book by its cover.”

In the martial arts, I teach my students to never judge an opponent with any pre-thought. What you “think” may not be true. Although many of us know this, it is remarkably difficult to get past the social stereotypes that we see in the media and movies.

Why is it that when you pick up any Martial Arts Magazine, watch any Martial Arts / War / Fighting Movie, you always see some dude with their top off, flexing their muscles, instilling intimidation through their “masculine prowess”, and in doing so, he instills fear and intimidation towards his opponents… Why?

Why is it that you always see “masculinity” as a means to being a great warrior, but a woman showing her “femininity” is not as equally accepted?

In the art of ninjutsu we train to see the unseen. The fact that someone has a muscular body does not mean they are good at combat. If that were the case, a Bodybuilder would be a great soldier and a Strongman Champion should be the next MMA champ.

If you ask any martial artist who has years of training, would they fear fighting against a bodybuilder or Strong Man Champion that has zero experience in fighting, most would say no. If you ask the average man on the street, they would hesitate because of the man’s size and strength… Why?

I understand that size and strength does add factors to the fight, but unless you submit to these factors, those factors do not dictate the fight. Never fear a man based on how big his muscles are, because I know through life experience that the man that is not as big and powerful can rip out your throat just as fast. Just the same, the woman that is being really nice and giving you lots of attention can take you for everything that you have; understanding the art of self defense is deeper than mere physical technique…

In the world of martial arts, the majority of teachers are men and the majority of students are men/boys. When you look at the majority of martial arts instructors, most of them were either in the military, police force, security field, bar bouncers and or bounty hunters. For some reason, having a more “masculine job” gives them more clout when teaching martial arts. But we will get to that in a later lesson…

In the martial arts, I am ridiculed all of the time because I am a woman. Nothing pisses off a closed minded, insecure man in the martial arts more than a powerful woman who exudes femininity and sexual freedom.

If I was nothing but tits and ass, than the Budo Ryu Kai would not have be around for 13+ years and still going strong teaching authentic ninjutsu and samurai bujutsu. Whether you love me or hate me, if you study ninjutsu anywhere in the world that has internet access, you have heard of “Soke Anshu” / “Anshu Christa Jacobson”. I personally do not give a shit about social stereotypes, nor do I have any fear of an opponent in front of me either. My opponent can prejudge me if they want. But it will be a mistake if they assume that I’m some dumb-ass weak blonde that cannot protect herself.

Self-defense (goshinjutsu) is not just in the physical realm, remember: “mind-body-spirit”. You have to learn how to protect yourself against mental and emotional attacks as well. This training also has an “ura” aspect to it, as you have to learn how to not hurt yourself, physically, mentally and emotionally as well. In many cases, the most stress, worry and pain comes from within. Here again, having negative pre-thoughts of yourself is just as detrimental. But we will also get to that in a later lesson…

An attack can come from anyone at anytime.

When you are in a combative situation, you cannot have any prejudgment or thought. You must move the way that you have trained, act and react accordingly. You are the weapon. Mind-Body-Spirit must become one. Connect to the elements and use them to your advantage. You will grow stronger as the enemy becomes weaker. Never judge an opponent with any pre-thoughts. Let go. Mushin (無心), no mind… The mentality is simple, defeat is not an option. You train to protect your life, Remember that next time you are in the dojo. Your life may depend on your training.

(read in full before you get pissed…)
Equal rights for all mean equal rights for all. Men and woman should be treated equally. No one should be treated differently because of their sex, gender, race or religion. #EqualRights

Many Hip Hop artists has used the term “made men” and people accept it as strong character and drive to be the person that they want to be. Amazing how this works for some communities but not others… #TransCommunity

Most of us are trying our best to be the person that we want to be. Regardless of what that is, we all see ourselves as “this” and we are trying to achieve “this”. We all try to do the things that help us be the person that we want to be such as: wearing specific type of clothes, doing our hair a certain way, diet and exercise, as well as changing the look of our body from a variety of options such as tattoos, body piercings and cosmetic surgery. #BeYou #BeHappy

The right of the image you see two men, who are extremely rich and make money off of the idea of being a “made man”. Then you get my ass on the left, doing what I have to do to be the woman that I want to be, and I get belittled, harassed and ridiculed for being a transgendered woman. #HatersGonnaHate

As far as I’m concerned, if you are nice to me, I’ll be nice back. If you are a mean, hateful, disrespecting ass, than I will simply not associate myself with you at all, and walk away. We all have a choice, and if you choose to associate yourself with people that are mean, hateful and disrespecting asses, than I will walk away from you too. #DontBeAnAsshole

Life is way to short to not be happy. You only live once, so make sure that what you are doing is getting you closer to the person that you truly want to be. The image for this lesson was to grab your attention and to make you think about the topic. But keep in mind, even though people harass, belittle and hate me for being me. I still stand up with a smile every day, because I love who I am, and what I’ve become, and you can too… #StayStrong

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Budo Ryu – Actions Speak Louder Words


I have never responded to a forum attack or a youtube / video attack in anyway, I let them talk and I simply go about my business promoting good ethics and morals to my students. I have nothing to defend, the Budo Ryu is a school of traditional martial arts that trains and teaches 7 warrior traditions.


I have to hold a position that reflects the dignity of the school. If I am going to tell my students that you should not fight unless you have to, that if the bully is talking than just walk the other way. If I am going to say this to my students, than that is the action that I will reflect from the school too.

Fighting is always the last answer, only fight if you have too, and these kids are talking to a computer, they are not here on the mats, they are talking to a webcam all over the world. I spend my time training, teaching and dedicating myself to the study of the arts. That is all. None of this online hate and slander has anything to do with being a good person or helping myself, my family, my friends, the school or my students in anyway at all.

I hope that you all enjoy the video and understand why I do not take part, the Budo Ryu is a professional school of marital arts and will conduct itself as such.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Stabbed in the Back!



Stabbed in the Back!

What do you do when you know that it is coming?

You know that you are helping someone, because they need help and they asked you to help them, yet once they get the help, they are going to drop you and give you NO CREDIT AT ALL — NO RESPECT — NO HONOR.

Do you keep helping them? if so Why?


Right now I am helping many people in the martial arts community in various different areas from teaching, administration, business, advertising, promotional ideas and video / photography design. I love helping them, If I can use my popularity in the arts to help others that is great! This just ads more positive energy in the marital arts community! 🙂

But as I write this there are 4 people that I am helping that I have found out from different sources are telling me one things and are going to be doing another. Even though I know that I am doing A LOT OF WORK for these 4 individuals & I know from very close sources once they get what they want from me, they are going to leave and not give me or my school any credit. I am still going to help them anyway,…and this is why.

#1 – Because I said I would, my word is my honor. Even to those that I ask for help, I always do what I say I will in the end. This is the only way to keep your honor.

#2 – Because my students, friends and fans will know that I am doing the right thing, and in the end, this is the correct thing to do.

#3 – When they show their real meaning — when they show what they are really worth — everyone will know that I knew that this was going to happen, and I chose this path anyway.

Because I can sleep at night knowing that I did the best I could to helping someone become better and stronger,I cant sleep at night knowing that I am not doing the correct thing.

—- If I don’t help them, that is me placing my personal gain over them as a person, so even though I know that I am not getting the same attention that I am giving them, a warrior does not place him/her self over anyone, they do the right thing in helping those that need help —-

There are those that are just about themselves and then there are those that are about helping others. All I care about is helping people learn these arts and spread the correct teachings of Authentic Ninjutsu.

This is the essence – We have to train hard and push ourselves in all three spirits of Budo (mind, body, sprit). The day that we stop learning, stop training and stop trying to make ourselves better as well as the others around us,…is the day that we get passed by and become a faint memory. Budo has to grow with the times, as do we.”

In the end, the ones that do not help anyone and just talk hate and are so fixed on personal gain they will be a forgotten shadow in history. No one wants to go to their grave forgotten. Help anyone you can, and let them choose their destiny. I wish you all the best my friends.

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

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Haters, Critics & Slander

Thank you to all of my haters out there!
You save me a “KILLING” on advertisement cost! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Nothing like people who like talk a lot of trash and then send them to a professional website that offers high quality instruction, HD videos & downloads that is dedicated to the teachings of Authentic Historical Ninjutsu & Samurai Bujutsu! In case they did not know, they are helping way more than hurting!


The Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo has been around a lot longer than most of these hating people that have nothing better to do than the slander others online.

So because the internet is all about “keywords” and “tags” to create people to “click on your site”. They use my name and my schools name to get people to click on their site so that they can sell whatever MMA / Martial Arts products that they are selling!

So all I can say is to all of the haters, you are welcome, without you using my name and my schools name no one would have ever clicked on your sorry site anyway,, you are welcome, glad that I could be of a help to you! 🙂

Message to the Haters:

“I’ll make you famous” – William H. Bonney (a.k.a Billy the Kid)

Hope you are all well! Remember today could be the best day ever if you let it!

Take Care, Be Safe & Good Luck in your Journey of Budo!
