Shinobi Mumon no Ikkan – The Gateless Gate

The Gateless Gate

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

 

“The great way has no gate;
There are a thousand different roads.
If you pass through this barrier once,
You will walk independently in the universe.”

The Gateless Gate (無門關)

The gateless gate is regarded as the greatest book of zen ever complied. It is a collection of 48 Chan (Zen) koans compiled in the early 13th century by the Chinese Zen master Wumen Hui-k’ai (無門慧開; 1183–1260).

This book was so profound even during the Sengoku Jidai (戦国時代); Samurai (侍)and Shinobi (忍び) families were reading these words as an aid towards enlightenment. In the Shoninki written by Natori Masatake of the Kishu-ryu school of Ninjutsu he writes:

“One of the most important things for you to do is always know everything you can of every place or province that is possible to know. When you are in that said province, be sure to read the feeling of the local people and do what is necessary according to the situation. If your mind is in total accordance with the “way” and understands reasoning and logic perfectly, than you can pass through the mumon no ikkan (The Gateless Gate; 無門關) “checkpoint”. This is a mental place that is barrier without a gateway that exist inside your mind. You will be able to pass through this mental stage because you will have a clear mind and reasonable thinking due to your training.” — Natori Masatake; Kishu-ryu; Shoninki

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!

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.

**************************​*****************

The lesson today comes from my own personal collection and study of these documents. I hope that this helps with all of your training! Take Care, Be Safe and Good luck in your Journey of Budo!

Bansenshukai; Yonin – 陽忍上

Yoninjutsu

BANSENSHUKAI VOL #4
(taken from Anshu Christa Jacobson private collection)

“YONIN”

There is yojutsu and injutsu in ninjutsu.

YONIN (yojutsu / yoninjutsu) is infiltration when in plain view of the people, so you are dressed like them and moving in and out of the crowd. This is where the Shinobi Nanabake (ninja disguise) was used. Many say that Yonin is only done during the day and that is wrong. You can use this tactics day or night. Yoninjutsu; is for the very highly skilled ninja.

INNIN (Injutsu / Inninjutsu) is infiltration when you are not in plain view, you are staying in the shadows, not in the area of people at all, climbing on roof tops, staying in the shadows, staying in the rafters of the house to gather information, in this situation, your goal is to stay out of complete site of everyone, stay in the shadows and carry out the mission, this infiltration tactic is called Innin. Inninjutsu; is primarily used for the lower ranking ninja.

Yojutsu — could be any kind of infiltration in plain view of the enemy, so the use of disguise to move through the crowd is a essential (i.e., shinobi nanabake, yamabushi, komuso, performers, fortune tellers, etc).

Injutsu — is when the infiltration and information gathering is done completely unnoticed and in the shadows. So the classical black outfit, would be of use in this situation. For example, entering the enemy territory at night and hiding in the bushes during the day while observing the enemy’s movements.

If you look at the 2nd row from the right you will see:
YO (陽) NIN (忍) JO (上)

YO (陽) Means; Positive or Light. Hence the training of Yo-jutsu being done in plain view —

NIN (忍) In this case means Shinobi, or in modern term “Stealing in” —

JO (上) Means; Top, Above, Upper. So this where the idea of this type of training being done by upper level shinobi comes from. —

If you look at the 5th row from the right, a little over half way down you see:
Shinobi (忍) Iri (入)

This (忍入) is giving detail to the entering methods of the Shinobi, in many schools called “Shinobi-iri”

**************************​*****************

The lesson today comes from my own personal collection and study of these documents.  All students know that one of the major documents that we use here at the school in reference to ninjutsu is the Bansenshukai.  I hope that this helps with all of your training!
