Soke Anshu 2020 Message: Focus On You & Your Martial Arts Training | Ninjutsu, Ninpo, Bujutsu, Budo

 

In this video, I share some thoughts on training with a few of my students at the Budo Ryu Kai Hombu Dojo in Kansas City. The message was to instill the idea that the students need to focus on themselves and their training. They need to leave the negativity outside. They need to get away from all of the hate that we see all over the media, and take the time to make themselves better through the student of the martial arts.
.
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).

Soke Anshu: It’s Been A Normal Day…

16711957_1389573444420572_1942377101082267767_n

Its been a normal day…

I’ve had some people tell me they love me
& some say they hate me…

I’ve had some people say I’m pretty
& some say I’m the ugliest they’ve ever seen…

I’ve had some tell me they are inspired by me
& some tell me I’m a dirty tranny whore…

I’ve had some ask to train in ninjutsu with me
& some tell me I’m a worthless fraud…

I’ve had some ask for spiritual guidance
& some say my witchy ass will burn in hell…

I’ve had some say my martial arts are great
& some say that my martial arts are shit…

I’ve had a normal day.
I was motivated & inspired before it started and I am even more motivated & inspired as the day goes on.

To all the people that have loved & supported me all of these years, thank you for the love and support! I will ALWAYS continue the teachings of Budo Ryu Ninjutsu.

To all the people that refuse to look at what I am doing without hatred & jealousy, simply because I more talented, successful & positive they they are. Keep watching my videos and clicking my website, I have so much more for you to be pissed at… just be patient.

GUERRILLA WARFARE

“The Guerrilla fights the war of the flea, and his military enemy suffers the dogs disadvantages: too much to defend; too small, ubiquitous and agile an enemy to come to grips with. If the war continues long enough – this is the theory – the dog succumbs to exhaustion and anaemia without ever having found anything on which to close his
jaws or rake with his claws.”

See the Light,….

“Cultivate your happiness within the hard work of your daily passion and illuminate this positive emotional light through the dark fog that surrounds us all.

This will foster happiness within, and inspires others to follow. Remember; Budo is about polishing your training to make yourself and the others around you better, this can only be done through refining action.”

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Purpose of the Martial Arts

Soke Christa Jacobson

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson

PURPOSE OF THE MARTIAL ARTS
(Taken from the upcoming book from the Budo Ryu Kai)

To understand the purpose of the martial arts training we have to understand the goal towards training; Self-Enlightenment, Self-Empowerment, Self-Defense and Self- Protection of oneself and loved ones.

I was once told of an old story of these two master swords man who were closer than brothers. They both mastered the way of the sword, and prepared to start their journey of Musha Shugyo (武者修行). They were going to be separate for many years. So they met one day on the opposite side of this creek, and they agreed that they would re-unite at the same place, at the same date, twelve years later.

Twelve years later, at that date they found that the rain and the course of nature had changed that creek to a large raging water stream so there is no way that they can meet at the exact same place. As one of the samurai determined to live up to his vow and to show his incredible level of skill that he amassed over the twelve years. He took a running jump and leaped over the deadly current of the rushing water, safely on the other side. The other samurai walked upstream and hired a boatman to get row him across safely to meet his close friend.

The skills that one man spent 12 years of training and refining was duplicated effortlessly with a few pennies. Similarly if your goal is only to “win” or “kill”, than we can just buy a gun rather than investing years of training. This is why students of Budo need to understand that Budo is not just about winning. Next we need to understand that winning is more than just defeating your enemy, it is about perfecting yourself – your personal character – as well as your skills as a martial artist.

In Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu (英信流居合術); one of the seven warrior traditions of the Budo Ryu, there is a saying: Kachi wa saya no naka ni ari (Victory comes while the sword is still in the scabbard) physical skills alone no matter how highly developed are not enough. There is always someone more skillful or someone with a dirty trick that will leave you unprepared. But attitude is better than aptitude in actual combat.

Without having a strong warrior spirit, courage and determination a high level of skill is useless. So the purpose of training in Budo is to develop the mind and spirit of a warrior and such a strength of character that it wins a battle before it begins. This takes years of training to do. These skills also lead to the ability to rid your self of and not respond to hate, slander, anger, fear, selfishness and jealousy as they are counter productive and self-destructive. Simply put frustration is the first sign of mental weakness. Those that get so frustrated that they have to say and do negative things are clearly mentally weak, and as a warrior and a practitioner of budo, you should not concern yourself with this action as this will also lead you off of true path of Budo.

“Kachi wa saya no naka ni ari”
(Victory comes while the sword is still in the scabbard)

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

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Darkness

“Just as the ninja operated in the shadows centuries ago in Japan, a new master of the art again comes from the darkness. Training you has been my greatest accomplishment, and it is clear the student has surpassed her master.”

Kobayashi Ichiro; 20th Soke Tomo Ryu
(The day he awarded Anshu Menkyo Kaiden & Sokeship)

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

“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
Sir Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett
(“Terry” Pratchett – English Novelist)

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

Art is the desire of a person express them self, to display and share the reactions of their personality to the world.

In this photo I wanted to use the contrast of the room so that people would look at the arts behind me, yet keeping my body / silhouette directly of the middle of the picture, to help with the “IN / YO” of the photograph.

Just as the screen behind me shows the dramatic difference between tiger and dragon, the photo also shows the contrast between light and dark. This in itself is also a major lesson of ninjutsu.

The screen behind me was painted by Kano Tanyu in the edo period (1602-1674) The piece is called Dragon and Waves; Tiger among the Bamboo.

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson.

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

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Finding Happiness

 

“If happiness hasn’t been recognized alone, than it will never be recognized by a group that is distracting you.”


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.

— SORRY BUT I AM NOT SO INSECURE THAT I HAVE TO TALK TO A WEBCAM AND TRASH OTHERS ONLINE SO THAT IN MY HEAD I CAN FEEL THAT PEOPLE WILL LIKE ME, AND LIKE WHAT I DO —

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.

Headmistress of the Budo Ryu — School of the Japanese Warrior Way

“People need to grow up and be adults and quit talking about each other and spend the time training instead of talking. No one is good enough to be criticizing anyone else.” – Soke Masaaki Hatsumi
