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.

Bushido (武士道)

“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!

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!
Take Care, Be safe and good Luck in your Journey of Budo – Christa Jacobson


Happiness In Life

Happiness in Life

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.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Sunshine

Sunshine,…

Yesterday I went to the park to enjoy the day. It was such a beautiful day, so I figured I would make the best of it and figure out a way for me to get things done while enjoying the sunshine.

********************

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
Dalai Lama

********************

I had quite a few emails so I decided instead of answering them on the internet (because I hate typing) that I would get the camera and go down to the lake and just answer the emails there.

I was a wonderful time, the emails were great too with many compliments and questions about training with the Budo Ryu I sat there and answered the emails for about 45 mins, till my battery ran down. I will get this video up and published on the website so that you all can see it as well!

(I will warn you the wind was really bad, so some sections you might not hear me that well).

I needed to get work done, but still wanted to enjoy nature and the day. Happiness is what we are all looking for. Do what you can do to make yourself happy, at the end of the day, that is all that we have.

Happiness and love helps you see things clearly, Hate and revenge clouds your vision.

It was said that hate is like a double edge blade, as you cast it on the people around you, you are also cutting yourself with it as well.

Remember that Budo is not about being better than anyone else. It is about being better than what you were yesterday, and if you are not in balance, if you are not happy, you cannot help others become happy.

I hope that this helps you today as well as your training.

Take Care, Be Safe &
Good Luck in your Journey of Budo.
