Kunoichi (くノ一) The Woman Ninja | Ninjutsu Training Techniques (Ninpo) | Woman’s Self-Defense

In this video, I discuss the Kunoichi (くノ一). A kunoichi is a woman practitioner of ninjutsu (ninpo). During the feudal period of Japan, ninja were used as assassins, spies, scouts and messengers. The training of the kunoichi differed slightly from the training given to male ninja, although they had a common core of martial arts training, such as taijutsu, kenjutsu, and ninjutsu. Kunoichi training tended to prioritize traditional female skills.
.
The eighth volume of the Bansenshukai written in 1676 by Fujibayashi Yasutake, describes the art of Kunoichi-no-jutsu (くノ一の術, Ninjutsu of female ninja). This can be translated as “a technique to use a female” and was employed for infiltration purposes. The Bansenshukai compiles the knowledge of various ninja clans from the Iga and Koka regions dedicated to the formation and understanding of ninjutsu. According to this document, the main function of the Kunoichi was espionage, finding functions in enemy residence, to gather knowledge, gain trust and or listen to conversations.
.
The Bansenshukai (萬川集海) translates as “All Rivers Merge into the Sea”, meaning that the Bansenshukai is the ultimate collection of all Iga & Koka Ninjutsu and is regarded by scholars as the Bible of Ninjutsu.
.
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).

Ninjutsu: Training with Honor – Earning Respect – Learning the Secrets | Traditional Martial Arts

In this video, I discuss why the tradition and essence of ninjutsu should not be lost.  The fundamental principals of real ninjutsu is:  Training with Honor, Earning Respect, and Learning the Secrets. For this lesson, I took a quote from the Bansenshukai.

Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson: My Extreme Approach To Ninjutsu Training | Ninja Martial Arts (Ninpo)

In this video I (Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson) explain why my approach towards ninjutsu training and physical conditioning is so extreme. We live in a world where violence, aggression, prejudice and hate is on the rise.  The only way to excel and perform in a violent extreme situation is to be highly skilled in violence, through extreme training.

Ninja-Iai: Iaijutsu Quick Draw Training Drills with Kodachi (Ninjato) | Ninjutsu, Bujutsu, Kobujutsu

In this video I demonstrate a basic iai (iaido) sword drawing training drill to help develop the skills needed to be proficient in iaijutsu. In this drill I am using a kodachi (ninjato) because the ryuha that we are training in has a strong focus on the use of the short sword.
.
The training (keiko) of Iai/iaido/iaijutsu is to be able to respond quickly to a unexpected attack efficiently.  This is a skill-set that is highly needed in today’s world of self-defense, as these same skills can be equally used in the use of concealed carry with edged weapons for self-defense / self-protection.

I Disagree With You Because… | Martial Arts Philosophy Lesson: Ninjutsu, Ninpo, Bujutsu, Budo,

In this video I discuss the idea of “disagreement” and why so many people feel that they need to voice their opinion of disagreement. It takes a very shallow minded person to declare that they will disagree with someone, when they do not have all of the information before making that statement.  The world is full of closed minded, hateful bigots.  As true practitioners of Budo, the goal is not just to be better; it is to be able to help those that are around us as well. Even though we all make different choices in life, we are all here for the same reason.  This truth has to be understood when training in the martial arts.

Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson | Kuji-In: The Nine Hand Seals | Ninja Martial Arts: Ninjutsu, Ninpo

This video is a very short clip of the actual full lesson.  This part of the video that is presented in a simple overview of the hand positions of the Kiji-In.  The Kuji-In roughly translates out as: The Nine Hand Seals.  Many people get the Kuji-In mixed up with a variety of other esoteric practices from this time period, such as: Kuji, Kuji In, Kuji Kiri and the Kuji Goshin-ho.  All of them are different, yet interrelated with one another.

Donald Trump is an Embarrassment To The United States of America

I DO NOT SAY THIS LIGHTLY….
(read in full before you post stupid comments)
.
The hate, prejudice and violence that have been going on now for the last 3 years+ is ridiculous.  The lack of leadership and increased acceptance of greed and separation for the last 3 years+ is saddening.
.
I want to start by saying Donald Trump is a disgusting, vile and hateful person. He is everything that is wrong with America.  Nothing is more saddening than having a person born into a rich family that has never worked for anything, and is now the leader of the USA.
.
This is because there are those that are more concerned about money, than Freedom. There are those that are more concerned about the betterment of “certain groups”, rather than the betterment of all people.
.
The founding fathers left a system that was ruled by the rich and wealthy.  They left a King & Queen of individual rule, for democracy and freedom. Well, at least that is what we were told in school here in the United States.  I question that ideal now, as I have seen nothing about freedom from this current administration.  All I’ve seen is a dictator that has done nothing but take away rights from anyone, or any group of people, that does not agree with his choices and decisions.
.
I’ve already said this to all of my thousands of students world wide, but I want to make the statement again before I continue my thoughts.  If you support Donald Trump, you are NOT welcome in this organization. This decision is final and with NO exceptions. Donald Trump is a hateful, racist, prejudice bigot and myself and this organization WILL NOT support such ideals.
.
In this organization I teach people how to survive in extreme violent and intense situations. I teach hand-to-hand combat, weaponry, concealed carry, survival skills, hunting, tracking… the list goes on and on.  I refuse to train anyone who already has hate in their heart and support hateful ideals.
.
When I made this statement to all of my students, I thought that I would lose 50% of my students.  I was okay with that. As a leader, I need to stand up for what is right and set the example for my students all over the world.  To my surprise, only 1 student with rank decided to leave to support Donald Trump.  Only one… and surprisingly, he’s not even a “Republican”. I have also “un-friended” and “un-followed” EVERYONE that’s supporting such a hateful individual on ALL of my social media.
.
ARE REPUBLICANS BAD PEOPLE?
No, not at all, but they are being played. I do not have any bad feelings towards anyone who voted for Donald Trump in the beginning.  He had a good pitch and let’s be honest, the Democrats (DNC) and the Republicans (RNC) gave us shit to choose from.  But remember the release of all of the “DNC Emails” during Trumps 2016 presidential campaign?  This was a tactic that Trump used to his advantage during this time.  Also, during this time ALL of the republicans hated Trump.  They despised him.  All of the major players: Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and John McCain all trashed him as being a xenophobic racist.  Then, all of a sudden, once Trump gets in, all of the Republicans that were against him, started openly supporting him…  Why?  Well, if you are good enough to hack the DNC, you are good enough to hack the RNC.  All politicians are crooked, and I am sure they all followed suit so that their truth was not exposed. I am sure that Trump also used this to his advantage.  Even though I do not blame those that voted for him in the beginning, I do blame those who continue to support him after everything that he has done.
.
So when people say, “Republicans are bad people”, I disagree. I do understand that there are those that just want to support the party. There is nothing wrong with that, nor does that make them bad people.  Example: The Kansas City Chiefs won the Superbowl the last year. Within the last year or so there were a few players on the Chiefs team that were arrested for domestic abuse, beating their kids and one player was dragging a woman through the halls of a hotel and beating her.  There are these kinds of players on ALL NFL teams.  Just because there are a few bad players does not mean that you cannot support your team.  So, if you are cheering for the Chiefs and not the man that beat a woman in the hallway; that is okay.  Same thing here, you can support a “team” (republicans), without supporting the hateful individual that is causing domestic abuse and violence (Donald Trump).
.
Yesterday Anonymous posted official Court Documents of a lawsuit from Epstein to Trump.  Remember Epstein, the man that was hung in jail. Donald Trump keeps saying he is going to “Drain the Swamp” but have you noticed he has not got rid of one corrupt politician yet.  The only people he’s gotten rid of, is his own administration who does not agree with him.  Now we find that he was in a lawsuit with Epstein regarding lots of money and actions with an under age child and Epstein gets hung in a protected cell?  See the blame originally was on other people, but with the newly released documents it is hard to believe that he did not have anything to do with Epstein’s death.
.
The CIA, FBI and other intelligence agencies ALL SAY that Russia meddled in the election to help Donald Trump. Why?  Why would Russia want Trump to be elected? Well, that answer is obvious and only those with a lack of “common sense” cannot see it. However, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
The Mueller Report proves that that the Trump campaign knew of Russian involvement and did nothing.  It also shows that there are 10 counts of obstruction of justice! What stems from this?  The DOJ saying that you cannot indict a sitting president and Mueller saying that he can be indicted as soon as he leaves office. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
It is an absolute fact that David Duke and the KKK were the biggest financial supporters of the 2016 Trump Presidential Campaign and Donald Trumps dad was a high ranking member in the KKK.
.
Today, there were hundreds of twitter accounts that were linked to organized crime during all of these protests.  ALL OF THESE ACCOUNTS were linked to White Supremacist groups! ALL OF THEM! Yes, there are organized groups of criminals that are planning to destroy cities that are protesting and these accounts are linked to White Supremacists groups. Let that sink in… Remember Charlottesville, VA?
.
No matter how many bad things have happen during the last 3+ years, No action has been taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
Bill Clinton got impeached for lying about a blowjob.  Donald Trump lied about seeing Stormy Daniels and the hush money payments.  Then when the checks were presented in court… nothing was done. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
He placed an oil pipeline through Native American Land just to make money.  To do this, he involved the military to make sure that the Natives would leave their land so the oil pipe line goes through. The pipeline goes in and then within a few months, the pipeline bursts and oil desecrates their sacred land. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
Trump says Mexico is going to pay for “The Wall”. That didn’t happen, nor did the construction of “The Wall” happen. What did happen was his absolute hatred and attacks towards the Hispanic community and separating of families and children at the boarder. Donald Trump acted like a heartless dictator, not a president of a free nation. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
He tried to ban people of a specific religion from entering this country.  That was ruled by the federal courts as being unconstitutional and was stricken down.  When this happened, not one Republican Senator said anything. Republicans say they are “constitutional conservatives”.  But when Trump does something deemed unconstitutional by federal courts, they did not pursue any action (legally or politically) against Trump or his Administration.
.
He tried to ban transgender people from working in the military.  Two times he tried this and both times it was ruled by the federal courts as being unconstitutional and was stricken down. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
In Charlottesville, VA… He openly supported the torch-wielding white supremacists chanting “You will not replace us!”.  What happened there?  The non-violent protesters were ran over by a hateful white supremacist.  Even though Trump openly made very clear and definitive support of racism, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
For months, we had a black athlete, exercise his 1st Amendment rights and kneeled in protest against police brutality against the Black Community.  He was met with mockery and hate by our president.  A man that swore to protect the constitution, ridiculed a man for exercising his 1st amendment rights.  Again, no action was taken against the Trump Administration (legally or politically) and in fact, the “MAGA FOLLOWERS” increased their support of him.
.
Now a black man dies at the hands of a white cop.  A white cop that is kneeling on the back of a black mans neck!  Nothing is said by trump. With all of the hate, prejudice and violence that Trump has encouraged, people are mad, upset and hurt.  We see thousands protesting correctly with no violence or destruction… We also see small organized groups creating MASSIVE destruction and we find out today that these groups are linked to White Supremacist hate groups.  Not a word from the White House… and I am sure, no action will be taken (legally or politically) against Trump or his Administration.
.
Yesterday our president (After a phone call with Vladimir Putin) threatens Martial Law and there are many that are supportive of it.  See the problem is the ones that are supporting it, are not getting their rights taken away.  Imagine what would happen if Trump took away guns.  The 2nd Amendment conservatives would riot, protest and cause destruction.  Just see how many memes are mad by the very thought of guns being taken away.  Look at all of the people saying what they’d do if you take away their “AR”… All of them claim violent action.  But when it is not “their” rights taken away, “they” do not care.
.
When the LGBTQ community is attacked, “they” do not care.
When any Religion of than Christianity is attacked, “they” do not care.
When any race/ethnicity is attacked other than white, “they” do not care.
When the poor is attacked, “they” do not care.
When the people of the inner cities are attacked, “they” do not care.
.
Hate is wrong.
Violence is not the answer.
Donald Trump is an embarrassment to this country and what it stands for.
.
As a woman who teaches combat and survival for a living, in a world full of people who think woman are not on the same level as men, I deal with prejudice everyday.  As a transgender woman who teaches combat and survival for a living, in a world full of people who think trans-people are not on the same level, I deal with bigotry everyday.
.
I deal with bigotry & hate every day and I stand against it, everyday.
.
I am the only transgender person who runs an international school of martial arts in the world.  I have attained many awards and accolades and I am the only non-Japanese to be awarded “Menkyo Kaiden (grandmaster; highest level license) of a Koryu Japanese martial art. Through my success in the martial arts, I have wrote 6 books, 50+ DVDs, develop a complete online dojo with nearly 10,000 members world wide! I have been on every radio channel and in every major magazine. One thing about being me, I do get a lot of attention.  Just last month my YouTube Channel got over 2.2 Million Views! But with this popularity comes responsibility, and I need to use it for the betterment of the people.
.
I am not going to stand against hate, prejudice and bigotry everyday and then train individuals that support those ideals. If you want to support Donald Trump, you need to dismiss yourself from this organization.
.
“We The People” need to do what is right. We need to stop hurting each other, and placing the blame on the government who is in control of the rule of law.
.
Thank you very much for your love and support.  Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of budo…

Random Thoughts: Government Control, It will get worse: Ninjutsu Training, Self Defense & Violence

In this video I discuss my thoughts on the 2020 Tomo-ryu Shinobijutsu Annual Keiko Training Event, Government Control and Social Violence.  Here at the Budo Ryu Kai we train to protect ourselves and the ones that we love. To do this, as martial artist, we need to be aware of our surroundings, the things that are going on, as well as knowing the facts of those that are in control of the government.

Cruisin’ Kansas City w/ Soke Anshu | Bansenshukai, Historical Ninjutsu Training & Ninja Martial Arts

In this video I give analogies on the topics of:

  • Power of the Book (Bansenshukai)
  • Supplements are not Substitutes (Ninjutsu Training)
  • Ancient Witchcraft Analogy (Ninjutsu Community)
  • Truth vs Fact (Ninjutsu Study)
  • Extreme Training for Extreme Results (Martial Arts / Self Defense)

.
This is a very lengthy video because I felt it was better for me to cover all of the angles of this one subject, rather than just approaching it from one angle. However, with that being said, I did leave out many things as well, and I can discuss those aspects in future videos.
.
To all of my students and supporters, please understand.  There is not substitute for training.  There is no book that will save your life and no magickal spell or magical pill that will protect you from violence. To protect yourself and the ones that you love, you need to train. Just as Miyamoto Musashi says: “The Way is in Training”.

Time To Reopn The Budo Ryu Kai Hombu Dojo | Kansas City Ninjutsu Training

Here is an update video regarding the reopening of the Budo Ryu Kai Hombu Dojo in Kansas City! This video is quite long and I do ramble a bit, but I do go over all of the information on the reopening of the Hombu Dojo.  There are things that I left out; as I felt it was better that I talk to my students 1 on 1 about some specific things. Also, there will be some things that we will need to change as we go through this process because this is a learning experience for all of us during these times.

How To Properly Apply Henka To Your Martial Arts Training | Ninjutsu, Ninpo, Bujutsu, Budo

In this video I discuss the method of how we utilize “henka” in our martial arts training at the Budo Ryu Kai.

Henka (変化) means: change; variation; alteration; mutation; transition; transformation; transfiguration; metamorphosis​.
.
In this video I detail the image of a tree and how the seed represents the kata.  If you train correctly and nurture good skills, you will grow a solid foundation and have strong roots.  From that, the tree will grow branches, limbs and leaves.  This is the henka.  Just as the branches and limbs are the variations and changes from the seed/root, the henka are the variations / changes from the kata. From here, you get the fruit.  This is the useable materials for survival and nourishment.  This is where we derive the goshinjutsu (reality based self defense) from the variation to help with our martial arts self defense training.

Shurikenjutsu Kihon | Shuriken Basic Training Techniques | Ninja Martial Arts: Ninjutsu, Ninpo

In this video “Shurikenjutsu Kihon”, I go over the basic knowledge and introduction of the use, the training and techniques of the shuriken. I also discuss how the ninja would have used this particular “kakushi buki (hidden weapon) on covert stealth missions, such as night raids. I also teach its historical position within the koryu; as this “weapon”, is more historically attached to samurai bujutsu, than it is to historical ninjutsu.
.
Shurikenjutsu (手裏剣術) is a general term describing the traditional Japanese martial arts of throwing shuriken, which are small, hand-held weapons/blades used primarily by the Samurai in feudal Japan, such as metal spikes bō shuriken, circular plates of metal known as hira shuriken, and knives (tantō).
.
Shurikenjutsu was usually taught among the sogo-bugei, or comprehensive martial arts systems of Japan, as a supplemental art to those more commonly practiced such as kenjutsu, iaijutsu, sojutsu, bōjutsu, etc… and is much less prevalent today than it was in the feudal era.
.

How To Train In Traditional Martial Arts For Modern Self-Defense | Ninjutsu, Bujutsu, Kobujutsu

 

In this video I teach how to train in traditional martial arts and how to make it work for the modern world of self-defense.  There are so many so called “Ninjutsu” or “Bujutsu” schools of classical martial arts that say (claim) that they are teaching methods of martial arts that fit in the modern day, when the facts are, they are not.  They are lying to make money, and they know it.

In the video you will hear me talk about “henka”. Yes many classical dojo / koryu schools of budo/ninpo do henka.  The difference is that their henka is still set within the 15th century.  They are not applying the principals, strategies and philosophies of the kata (that they claim to be a master of) in the modern world of self defense.  Instead of mastering the arts that they claim to be dedicated too, they study “koryu” and then do modern martial arts such as Krav Maga or Systema for the “Self-Defense”.  To all of “1st degree masters” that do this: You should be embarrassed of yourself and you should apologize to the warrior arts that you claim to be so dedicated to.

The facts are, there is no martial art that is better than another.  They were all made for different reasons at different times in history.  The best thing to do is fine a martial art that like you (regardless of what it is), find a master that will teach you, and dedicate yourself to the mastery of that art.

Authentic Historical Ninjutsu & Classical Koryu Bujutsu Skills | Ninpo & Budo Training Demo

In this video I thought I would share with you a demonstration (demo) on authentic historical ninjutsu and classical koryu samurai bujutsu skills! I used the footage from our taikai events over the last 10 years, to create this fun demo for all of you!

There are so many “ninpo schools” that teach taijutsu and call it ninjutsu.  Ninjutsu is not taijutsu.  Ninjutsu is ninjutsu.  Here at the Budo Ryu Kai, we pride ourselves on the study and training of authentic ninjutsu and classical samurai bujutsu!

One of the reasons some of the larger “ninpo organizations” and members of these organizations like to belittle and trash me and my organization (Budo Ryu Kai), is simply because they know they are NOT teaching real historical ninjutsu. It is easier for the “established businesses/organizations” and “online haters and trolls” to keep doing what they are doing, even though they know they are wrong.  Regardless of how many attack me, the truth is the truth and if you are a student of the Budo Ryu Kai, studying Budo Ryu Ninjutsu, than you are without a doubt, 100%, studying true ninjutsu, bujutsu and kobujutsu.

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).

Stay Away from Hate & Negativity

Today’s Lesson | Stay Away From Hate & Negativity
.
Yesterday I went out for a walk to shoot a video and share some of my thoughts on the MartialArts with all of you. This video was me going over my journey of teaching Ninjutsu all of these years. The video included all of the ups and the downs and the good and bad lessons that I learned along the way. The video was about 1 hour long, which means it would be about 40 min. once I edit and cut it down.
.
In the video I found myself drifting and discussing topics that were toxic and would not lead to any positive outcome at all. So I decided that I would not post the video. I know that there are many people in all of the martial arts community that are very “open” and “public” about voicing their opinions and trashing and hurting others. But as I have stated many times, I will never take part in that. However, because I have said this statement numerous times, that is why I have been taken advantage of so many times in the past. Certain people knew they could walk on me, knowing I was not going to “out them” publicly.
.
There is an old saying:
“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall from anything.”
.
Regardless if you believe what I believe or practice what I practice, if you know me, than you know I live a very Esoteric life. I do believe in Magic / Magick, universal energy, Chakra, Karma, 3 fold law, etc… Because of my spiritual position I do not allow myself to take part in situations or align myself with people that can bring negativity towards me in anyway. Which is one of the basic lessons of Self Defense; Best Defense is to not be there.
.
Instead of me using personal experiences and telling you about how “this person” and “that person” did me wrong, using conniving, backstabbing and treacherous methods so that they could “advance” or “benefit” either personally or professionally by using me and my friendship. I am going to give you a more “public” example so that you understand my point.
.
See, if I was to use the personal experience as an example and talk about “this person” and “that person”, I would be talking about things that are 100% true, but happened behind the scenes. Which means “this person” and “that person” would simply deny the allegations and maintain whatever their positions are with whatever situation that I was talking about. So to make this more clear. Let me give you an example of the bullshit that I stay away from that is very public and cannot be argued.
.
There is a man online who has never met me, never trained with me, yet has made numerous videos and posts about me. In a video he posted, he dressed up as a woman, mocked me, belittled me, then placed a banana between his legs and cut it off making fun of me because I am a Transgender Woman. So many people attach themselves to this hateful vulgar person and I do not understand why. From a martial arts perspective he does not have high rank at all, nor is he a teacher. He may have a large book collection but his attitude is so vile and disgusting, I do not understand why anyone would want to associate themselves with this person at all. It does speak very loud and clear about those that would condone this individual and still want to align themselves personally and professionally.
.
This person that I am speaking of is so hateful; at one time, he posted a series of videos attacking a specific individual on YouTube. In the end, the man that he was attacking, hung himself because of this individuals hateful online bullying. Knowing that, there are still people to this day that will speak his name in their videos as though this man is an authority, attempting to give him a platform to share his knowledge, when the facts are, having a large book collection does not make you an authority, nor does it mean you are knowledgeable.
.
Have you ever noticed that the majority of the people that take this hateful approach online are all depressed, alone and do not have too many friends? They seem to think that having an “online base” makes them more “likeable”. But in fact, it is the opposite. The majority of them do not have many friends because no one wants to be around them.
.
Have you also noticed that the majority of these people are single, not married and do not have kids? One could argue that this is a personal decision, but very few would argue that family, love and acceptance are the most important aspects towards happiness in life. I do not hate/dislike any of these people, including the individual that I used as an example earlier. I feel sorry for all of them. Because they will never truly understand or experience what it is that I am talking about.
.
Again, you need to stand for something or you will fall for anything. You are better than that. Never lower your standards, even if everyone around is doing so. Remember the people that are trying to pull you down are already below you. Stand up for what you believe in. It does not matter if the whole “Ninjutsu Community” if full of hateful, narcissistic, self centered, self absorbing egotistical Prejudice bigots. I will never lower my standard of excellence and will still provide an opportunity for those who want to train in authentic ninjutsu classical samurai Bujutsu in a positive environment.
.
Have you noticed that the weaker always travel in groups? You see this in nature too. The weaker animals always travel in groups because they feel safer, even if they do not like other members of their group. The strong always seem to be okay with standing on their own feet and not aligning themselves with others.
.
I stand alone with my teaching in ninjutsu. Yet, many of the weak want to always congregate and feed off of each other, yet self-proclaim themselves as doing something great. When in reality, behind the scenes, they are the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
.
In the Budo Ryu Kai, we have a 100% Zero Hate Policy. If anyone posts hate they will be dismissed. If anyone supports hate, they will be dismissed. If anyone wants to align themselves with hateful people, they will be dismissed. It is that simple.
.
To give you an example of this, I am a Transgender woman married to a woman of color and we have mixed kids. If someone wanted to be a member of the KKK and support David Duke (grand-wizard of the KKK), then they will not be a member here. I am not going to have a student that supports a hateful organization that is attacking me and my family along with many other Budo Ryu Ninjutsu students of color as well as their families. However, everyone knows that I am a transgender woman married to a woman of color and we have mixed kids. So I could give examples on hateful groups against LGBTQ, transgender people, gay marriage, etc. But I am in hope that you understand where I am going with this point.
.
See the majority of the weak, are not in the same position that I am in. I am married, with kids. So I have to set an example for my children. I am a teacher of the arts and I have thousands of students all over the world who look up to me for guidance. Am I human? Yes. I would love to get online and put them all on blast. But that action goes against everything that I stand for, and I have a much larger responsibility then all of them and I will not lower myself to their level.
.
I am in hopes that all of you can learn something from this lesson. Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo.
