Inyo no ho (陰陽の法) Methods of Light & Dark

Soke Christa Jacobson

Last night in class I was trying to get across the understanding of the principals of “Inyo” (also called Yin & Yang in Chinese martial arts).  Literally meaning “dark and light” this is used to describe how polar opposites or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn in relation to each other.

 

“For every dark night, comes a bright day” we have all heard this, but to understand it, you have to realize that for every bright day, a dark night will fall.

 

Many natural dualities—e.g. dark and light, female and male, low and high, cold and hot, water and fire, earth and air—are thought of as manifestations of Inyo (respectively).

 

Inyo are not opposing forces (dualities), but complementary opposites, examples are (1) light / positive means hard or masculine but in contrast to that there is the other side of (2) dark / unseen means hidden or feminine.  This is where my warrior name from the Tomo-ryu stems from: “Anshu / Dark Master” (暗主; also interpreted as informal master).

 

Everything has both In and Yo aspects as light cannot exist without darkness and vice-versa, but either of these aspects may manifest more strongly in particular objects, and may ebb or flow over time.

 

Look at the martial arts that we all train in.  Regardless of what art / school / organization we all learn many kata / waza, to learn the concepts of war.  When we are learning kata, the teacher will tell you when they “do this” you “do this” but how many really look at what “they do” as the positive and what “we do” as the negative?

 

The facts are the same attacks that we receive we are also training in our taijutsu to become effective in.  Same as life, just because someone tells you that “this is bad” remember that “this” only bad from their perception, but from your perception “it” might be the right thing to do, which is why you should always follow you heart.

 

So what is positive and what is negative?  That is a matter of perception that you choose on your path, you should never judge anyone by the path that they choose to follow, just because it is a negative thing for one, does not mean that it is not a positive thing for another.  Remember that, and learn how to follow your heart and move with the energy that surrounds and penetrates us all.

 

Everything in life has to have balance.  Just like breathing, when you breathe in, this is positive, you are taking in life.  When you exhale, this is negative, as you are letting life go.  Some see breathing as a good thing and choose to live, while others see breathing as a bad thing, and choose to die.  Understanding balance, you have to understand that with every positive is a negative, and with every negative is a positive, it is all a matter of personal perception.

 

In guerrilla warfare we are taught to take the enemies advantage, (positive) and use it against them (negative).  You grow stronger as they grow weaker.  Understanding and applying this principal all revolves on the relation of Inyo and taking what they see as their positive and making it their negative.  When you are in a negative situation in life, find the positive within it, every negative has a positive.  Find the positive and make it work for you rather than against you.

 

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson, take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo.

“If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.”
– David Carradine; 1936–2009

If you cannot express who you are in your journey of life through the human expressions of words and writings; then let the world see who you are through the various artistic expressions of art.

Learn to listen and understand yourself and show the world the one thing that no one else can give to the world; an honest expression you.

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson!

Take Care, Be Safe and Good Luck in your Journey!

The Way (道)

Soke Christa Jacobson

 

Anshu Christa Jacobson teaching Tenjin-ryu Jujutsu Buke Waza (天神流柔術 武家技) at the Budo Ryu Hombu Dojo (武道流本部道場)

(Transcription)
“There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But in doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking, this understanding extends to everything.” – Yamamoto Tsunetomo; 1659-1719

(Translation)
If you are going to create art, their will be times that you spill the ink. If you are going to model, there are times that people do not look at the art. If you are going to farm the land, there are times that your crops don’t grow. If you are going to train in samurai bujutsu and authentic ninjutsu; there are times that you are going to be hurt.

If you are trying to find your way, there are times, as you are walking it will rain and you will be wet. You cannot learn without making mistakes, accept it, you are training in warrior arts, keep walking forward and the rain will stop sooner or later, and at that time, you will find your way.

I hope that you understand today’s lesson and can see my interpretation of this wonderful classic text on samurai bujutsu.

Thank you all for your support!
Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo.

Ongyōjutsu (隠形術); Kannon-gakure

Anshu Christa Jacobson

 

Ongyōjutsu (隠形術) – Disappearing Techniques (隠形術)

KANNON-GAKURE (God Hiding)

Ongyojutsu (隠形術) is the art of disappearing and hiding (or what others say “invisibility” techniques). When talking about this form of hiding, usually the techniques such as (1) Kitsune-gakure (2) Uzura-gakure (3) Kannon-gakure (4) Tanuki-gakure and (5) Ukigusa-gakure are just some of the hiding techniques that come to mind when talking about this forms of Ongyōjutsu (隠形術) within classical ninjutsu.

In the photo above I am teaching the technique “Kannon-gakure” (a.k.a God Hiding). This is done within a house or residence of the enemy where you are trying to gain or take vital information. However, the photo above is me demonstrating the principals of the technique during the 2011 shinobi no mono stealth camp.

When you are doing this you are to be walking within the hallway, or residence, you are also to be wearing dark colors and to be walking in the shadows of the hallway as well. When you sense that the enemy is walking near, you stay within the shadows and press your body up against the wall.

Cover your mouth with your sleeve of your jacket and breathe as little as possible, this is because when they walk by you, they are so close that they will be able to feel your breathe on them, so total concentration is needed!

Lower you face into your sleeve, and to a rhythm of your racing heart silently chant the following:

— “On Ah Ni Chi Ma Ri Shi E I So Wa Ka” —

It’s written that you have to say this “within” your mouth, which can be translated as saying this in your head. Clearly if you say it out loud they will spot you and then kill you. It is also said that this is the mantra that you say before you go on the mission, so that there is no need to say it when you are on a mission. However; the usage of this is key as it makes sense that you would say it when on the mission in your head to calm your nerves and anxiety that you are feeling as the man that wants to kill you is full armed and walking within inches of your body.

This is to be done wearing the classical shinobi garb (shinobi shōzoku 忍び装束) and also making use of the zukin (hood) as this will help aid cover the natural tones and silhouette of the human form. However this can also be done wearing dark colors as well and using one of the basic tools of the ninja the “sanjaku tengui”.

In this photo above I was not wearing the shinobi shōzoku (忍び装束) but utilized what I had so that I could demonstrate the use of this technique to the students.

In the photo above I am teaching at the 2011 Shinobi Stealth camp the technique “Uzura-gakure” (a.k.a Quail Hiding). Usually this is done at night or right as it is getting dark so that you can use the shadows to your advantage.

When you are in a garden or area with natural foliage, wrap both of your arms over your head and crouch down like a quail shape ball to resemble a garden stone so that you would be over looked if someone gazed through the area.

This is to be done wearing classical shinobi garb (shinobi shōzoku 忍び装束) and also making use of the zukin (hood) as this will help aid cover the natural tones and silhouette of the human form. However this can also be done wearing dark colors as well and using one of the basic tools of the ninja the “sanjaku tengui”.

In this photo above I was not wearing the shinobi shōzoku (忍び装束) but utilized what I had so that I could demonstrate the use of this technique to the students, as you can see, it still works!
