ANSHU CHRISTA JACOBSON; BUDO RYU SHINOBI KAJUTSU 武道流 忍び火術 – 火遁之術, 火薬術, 火器

This video is a very brief introduction to the kajutsu training within the training halls of the Budo Ryu — School of the Warrior Way.

The Budo Ryu is dedicated to teaching traditional samurai bujutsu and authentic ninjutsu. To do this the Budo Ryu has 7 Warrior Traditions that it teaches from:

7 WARRIOR TRADITIONS OF THE SCHOOL:
* Koka Ryu Kempo (甲賀流拳法)
* Tenjin Ryū Jujutsu (天神流柔術)
* Tomo Ryu Shinobijutsu (戸猛流忍術)
* Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū (英信流居合術)
* Koto Ryu Koppojutsu (虎倒流骨法術)
* Gyokko-Ryū Kosshijutsu (玉虎流骨指術)
* Togakure-ryū Ninpo Taijutsu (戸隠流忍法体術)

The majority of Kajutsu (fire techniques) training outside of the historical research from the ancient scrolls of the samurai and ninja; comes from two of the warrior traditions. The two primary traditions within our school that details Kajutsu or “fire techniques” are Tomo Ryu Shinobijutsu and Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu.

In this video you will see that the Budo Ryu beaks down the kajutsu training into 3 areas:

Katon no jutsu (火遁之術) is the section that teacher – evasion, infiltration and deception.

Kayakujutsu (火薬術) is the section that teaches – firearms, explosives and gunpowder.

Kaki (火器) is the section that teaches “fire tools” these are tools that the ninja used on missions that aided them in the art of stealth and use fire, smoke, hot coals and ash.

I hope that you enjoy the video! Thank you all for your support!

MONOMI – Shinobi Hand Torch

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.

“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 – Teppojutsu

TEPPOJUTSU – THE ART OF FIREARMS

Temaezutsu seisaku no koto of the Nakajima-ryu hojutsu kankiroku
(taken from Anshu Christa Jacobson private collection)

Teppo Jutsu refers to the “art of the rifle”, a warrior art practiced in feudal Japan by the Samurai.

Contrary to popular belief, the Samurai did use firearms and as with all their weapons arts they were quite skilled “riflemen”.

Similar to the other weapons employed, for the Samurai this art encompassed all aspects of the rifle as a weapon: achieving accuracy, proper cleaning and maintenance, rifle and ammunition design and development, as well as using the rifle in Close Quarters Combat. This latter included such skills as weapons retention, striking with the rifle as a blunt weapon, and even the use of the bayonet (Juken Jutsu).

“One of many things the Japanese were interested in were Portuguese guns. The Japanese were already familiar with gunpowder (invented by, and transmitted from China), and had been using basic Chinese guns and cannon tubes called Teppō (鉄砲 Lit.”Iron cannon”) for around 270 years before the arrival of the Portuguese. The Portuguese guns however were light, had a matchlock firing mechanism and were easy to aim with.

The Famous Daimyo, Oda Nobunaga, made extensive use of guns (arquebus) playing a key role in the Battle of Nagashino. Within a year, Japanese swordsmiths and ironsmiths managed to reproduce the mechanism and mass-produce the guns. Barely fifty years later, “by the end of the 16th century, guns were almost certainly more common in Japan than in any other country in the world”, its armies equipped with a number of guns dwarfing any contemporary army in Europe (Perrin). The guns were strongly instrumental in the unification of Japan under Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu, as well as in the invasion of Korea in 1592 and 1597″.

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson on Teppojutsu!
