Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson; Headmistress of the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo, is one of the most sought after instructors in the traditional and eclectic martial traditions. She is a member of the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame and is said to be the only non-Japanese to receive a Menkyo Kaiden (The highest level license that exist in Japanese martial arts) and Sokeship (inheritor / grandmaster) of a koryu bujutsu / ninjutsu tradition.
In 2004 she wanted to bring back the tradition of Japanese Bujutsu, something that she felt has been lost in the modern world. To do this she established the Budo Ryu, meaning School of the Warrior Way.
The Budo Ryu Kai (Budo Ryu Ninjutsu) was developed by her personal research, training, experience, and combining all of these facets into a way to fully develop ones mind, body and spirit as one.
Budo Ryu Ninjutsu is Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson’s modern approach towards the study of ancient samurai & ninja warfare. The seven warrior arts that are studied within the Budo Ryu Kai are:
– Koka Ryu Kempo
– Tenjin Ryu Jujutsu
– Tomo Ryu Shinobijutsu
– Eishin Ryu Iaijutsu
– Koto Ryu Koppojutsu
– Gyokko Ryu Kosshijutsu
– Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu
Soke Anshu is an active pagan, who openly practices Wicca. She resides in Kansas City, Kansas where she owns and operates the Budo Ryu Kai, more commonly known as the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo. For more information log on to: www.BudoRyuNinjutsu.com
