Michi Hidou (道秘道) The Way and the Secret Way

Michi Hidou (道秘道) The Way and the Secret Way
.
In the picture above Soke Anshu is with a student at the Annual Shinobi-no-mono Stealth Camp (2012) demonstrating various outfits and disguises of the shinobi. Utilizing many different outfits as a means of camouflage as well as disguises, the ninja can move undetected within the crowd or in the shadows.
.
Above you see Soke dressed as Ronin (浪人; person of the waves) which falls within the philosophy of Tsune-no-kata (常之型; normal look). For demonstrational purposes at the event, the student placed on a Shinobi Shozoku (忍び装束) called the Fuyu Shozoku (冬装束; ninja winter garb) which is a classical outfit of the ninja to move undetected (陰忍術; Innin-jutsu) in the winter months of snow and ice. All concepts of disguise and camouflage are covered when the students of the Budo Ryu understand Kage-no-kame (影之構).

————————-

“If in his mind the warrior does not forget on thing,
Death, he will never find himself cut short.
.
The lesson the warrior learns in every case
Is ultimately, finally the one thing: death.
.
If the warrior proceeds by casting aside two things,
Life and death, nothing at all can best his mind.”
.
Tsukahara Bokuden; 1489-1571

Capturing True Budo

Without knowledge, a high level of warrior skill will never be focused.
Without high level of skill, one may never attain a high level of true strength.
Without true strength, knowledge may not be applied.
Without applied knowledge, one will never find wisdom.
Without wisdom, one will never find the enlightenment of which they seek.

This is a insight towards training that I came up with this morning, not for sure if it makes sense to any of you, but it makes sense to me, I hope that it helps all of you with your training.

Thank you all for your support!

Shibumi-do (下味道) The Way Towards Effortless Perfection

武道流忍術道場

Inspiration is what people remember, not defamation. No one wants to go to the grave forgotten and the only way to be remembered is to inspire the ones around you.

Even if it is someone that you only met for a brief moment in your life, you can share with them the greatest moment in their life, just by a simple thank you, or a smile. To some, this changes their perception of the day.

There is this Japanese term called “Shibumi” (下味) which means effortless perfection. Kobayashi Sensei always told me that there is not such thing as perfection, and the better you get, the further your idea or perception of perfection is. he always used the term “Shibumi-do” or the “way of effortless perfection.”

He said the he uses this term because no one can achieve perfection (Shibumi) they can only dedicate themselves towards the idea of it (thus the usage of the kanji “Do). But this in itself is a stagnant thought because this is not a moment of time, this is a philosophy that you have to dedicate to within your journey of life; so he always told me good luck in that journey (Shibumi-do).

Everyone wants to tell you what you can and cant do, but no one other than yourself knows what you are capable of. Dedicate yourself to the things that make you complete. Inspire the ones around you, to become better and if you know what you are worth, than go get it. No one is going to give it to you.

I hope that you understand my rambling thoughts this morning, it made sense to me as I wrote it.

Thank you all for your support.

Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo.

Happiness In Life

Happiness in Life

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

Photo Taken: 10.18.2011
After class at the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Hombu.

Yesterday’s classes at the Hombu Dojo made me realize how lucky I am to be able to do what I love to do everyday and make a living at it. I mean that is everyone’s dream isn’t it? To be able to do what you love to do, express who you are to the world and make a living doing it? The unfortunate thing is that not many get this opportunity or maybe,… not many are willing to take the chance.

It was said once by Confucius “Choose a job that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”. He was right. I get the pleasure of everyday waking up and spending the rest of the day dedicated to the authentic ninjutsu and traditional samurai bujutsu and help teach the martial arts to the students of the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo.

Sure; there is work that has to be done; we make video downloads, shinobi no mono magazine, DVD’s for the Ninjutsu Super Store, and uploads and updates to the Budo Ryu Online Dojo as well as keeping in contact with all of our students and supports with our myspace page, facebook page and youtube channel. The greatest part that I find with what I do is that I never get frustrated at all because of what I am doing, I always feel like I want to do more than what I have; and to me that is a good thing!

You only have one life to live, live it to be happy, and don’t be scared to be yourself, that is what is going to really make you happy. Happiness starts within and then it is expressed outward. Just like art.
