In this training event we looked at the Kodachi (小太刀) or short sword fighting skills from the Tenjin-ryu (天神流) and the Tomo-ryu (戸猛流). We also looked at many of the kata from the Togakure-ryu Shinobigatana (戸隠流忍刀). Towards the end of the training session we looked at various methods of Iaijutsu (居合術) with the Kodachi (小太刀).

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Warrior Guardian Deity

Warrior Guardian Deity

There was a militant side to Japanese Buddhism. Many monasteries were fortified and had standing armies. These measures began as protective measures against brigands and marauding armies but over time led to the sects becoming like feudal states, sometimes with large armies controlling entire provinces.

In almost every Buddhist country, the temple gates are guarded by two or more fearsome figures.

There are explanations for this. One understanding is that anyone who tries to enter the temple with a burden of negativity will find him- or herself unable to get past the guardians. Leave it all outside, they say, and enter with a pure heart.

In some countries, like Japan, the figures have a further feature. The Japanese “Ni-O” (“Two Kings”) are depicted one with his mouth open, the other with his mouth closed. A popular interpretation of this is that they are signifying “A” and “Un,” the two sounds which make up the Japanese pronunciation of the “sacred syllable” Om. Better, though, is another idea, based in the concept of duality.

The Two Kings, they say, represent the two aspects of In and Yo (yin and yang in Chinese philosophy). Further, they represent two of Buddhism’s great “evils”: Fear and Desire. Mister “A,” he with the open mouth, is the “IN” receptive, but he is also Desire, opening up for anything he can get. Mister “Un,” then, is the closed-mouthed passive “YO”, but also the one who lives in Fear, shutting out the possibility of any new opportunities.

“IN” is no good without “YO”. And the extremes of Fear and Desire prevent one from living a full life. And so it is only the one who can pass through the Middle, between IN and YO, get past Fear and Desire, who is eligible to seek the Buddha.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Darkness

Soke Christa Jacobson

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson

Photo Taken – 6.2.2011

“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.
