What Inspired You To Start Your Journey In The Martial Arts? | Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson

In this video, I ask the question, what inspired you to start your martial arts training?  This is a topic that is very different and personal for all of us.  Some of us were inspired by people, while others were inspired by books, comic books, cartoons and videos games.
.
Anyone who knows me, knows that Teela from the MOTU (Masters of the Universe), was my original Martial Arts inspiration. As a young transgender child, this was a very powerful cartoon for me on many levels.
.
Regardless of our inspiration, what is important is finding something that will inspire us to be the best us that we can be. For me, it was the Master of the Universe cartoon and all of the small lessons that were hidden within. What was it for you?

Soke Anshu 2020 Message: Focus On You & Your Martial Arts Training | Ninjutsu, Ninpo, Bujutsu, Budo

 

In this video, I share some thoughts on training with a few of my students at the Budo Ryu Kai Hombu Dojo in Kansas City. The message was to instill the idea that the students need to focus on themselves and their training. They need to leave the negativity outside. They need to get away from all of the hate that we see all over the media, and take the time to make themselves better through the student of the martial arts.

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.
.
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.

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.

5 Day Total Body Martial Arts Training Workout Program! | Increase Your Strength & Endurance!

In this video I give a tutorial lesson on how you can add a basic 5 day total body fitness workout to your martial arts training. This will help you increase strength and endurance as well as your heath and fitness levels!

As many of you know, I am HUGE on health, wellness, fitness and conditioning within the martial arts. To me, it makes ZERO sense to train in the martial arts and not have the physical ability to even do what it is that you are training to do. The secret is in training; pushing your mind, body and spirit to levels that it has never been! Learning how to take pain and keep moving forward! Making your body as strong as the sword, and the mind as sharp as the blade!

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).

How To Properly Practice Your Kata | Martial Arts Training Techniques: Taijutsu, Kenpo, Karate

Learn how to improve your martial arts kata, using ancient training techniques from Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson of the Budo Ryu Kai (Budo Ryu Ninjutsu).

When you are training kata, you need to be able to “flow”, similar to the way that you breathe to circulate and flow air through the body. You also have to need to be able to “beat”, similar to the way that your heart beats to keep you alive. You need both the hard and the soft working together to properly practice your kata.

The Sad Truth in the World of Martial Arts Business & Self-Defense Industry

In this video, I discuss the sad truth in the world of the martial arts. Do not get me wrong, I love the martial arts and the ninjutsu community.  But that does not mean I love everything that’s in it.  There are things that are absolutely terrible in the world of martial arts and self defense business; and in this video, I detail 3 things that are the sad truth in the industry.

  • The majority of teachers cannot do what they claim they can do, and or, they cannot do what they teach.
  • The majority of teachers spend more time on the perception of their dojo’s image, rather than the development of their student’s skills.
  • The majority of teachers give out easy rank, to make more money. In doing this, it hinders the student’s development because the importance is not on the student; it is on the profit margin on the dojo.

I refuse to participate in the above 3 points.  The art, the transmission of the art and the relationships with the students and their development is what is important.

Importance of Paying Your Dues in the Martial Arts | Student Training Fees & Responsibilities

In this video I discuss the importance of students taking care of their responsibilities, monthly dues and training fees.

 

We live in a world where there are so many that feel they are entitled and deserve free training. Most of these individuals do not understand the importance of hard work.

 

Then you have those who do work hard, but they do not have any honor, respect, dignity or loyalty to their teacher or dojo. They will disrespect their sensei and cheat the dojo because they are so self-centered, egotistical and arrogant that they feel they do not have to take care of their responsibilities.  If they get what they want, they will hang everyone out to dry just so they can advance.

 

Years ago, when I decided to teach martial arts fulltime, I knew that I was never going to be rich.  But, I was not doing this to be rich.  I was teaching martial arts because I wanted to help people through the study and training of martial arts. It’s just sad that in doing so, I have to deal with people who “say” they have honor, when in fact, they do not…..

Top 5 Ninja Principals of Stealth / Silent Walking | Ninjutsu Martial Arts Training Techniques

In this video, I teach a step by step tutorial of the top ninja principals of stealth walking, a.k,a Shinobi Aruki. Many times people see ninjutsu training as this very specific thing, when in reality, all ninjutsu training if flexible and fluid.  The Top 5 Ninja Principals of Stealth Walking Are:

 

(1) Understand Bodyweight Transfer During Motion.

(2) Control Your Breathing.

(3) Stay Relaxed and Flexible.

(4) Train in Various Elements To Enhance Body Control.

(5) Learn To Adapt To Each Situation & Element.

 

In the classic ninjutsu text called the Bansenshukai, Fujibayashi Yasutake says:

 

“Ignorant ninja are not aware of this principal but directly stick to ancient ways and do not even know the simplest of facts…”

 

“Its folly to see something as unchangeable and stick to an old method without realizing that things keep changing and are in flux.”

 

– Fujibayashi Yasutake | Bansenshukai; 1676

Ground Fighting Defensive Training Drill | Jujutsu Martial Arts Techniques

 

In this video, I teach a ground fighting defensive training drill. This is a drill that will help your defensive skills as well as better your reversal skills in a combative situation. THERE IS A BENEFIT IN LEARNING HOW TO TAKE A PUNCH! THERE IS A BENEFIT IN LEARNING HOW TO BE TOUGH!

 

So many schools only focus on offense. How can you get this lock? How can you set up this choke? But the reality is, in a self defense situation, you never know when the attack is going to happen. More times than not, you will be attacked when you least expect it, you will need to defend the attack, better your position before you can utilize your offensive tactics. This is why we run this drill. The help the students better their defensive skills!

How To Apply A Guillotine Choke (Mae Hadaka Jime) Jujutsu Martial Arts Training Techniques

 

In this video, I give a class lecture in the Budo Ryu Kai Hombu Dojo on the philosophy of the relationship and growth of training in the martial arts.  It is very important to understand that we as people do not “change” per-say.  We grow.  We grow to be the people that we are supposed to be.  The relationship that you have with the training of the martial arts is entirely up to you, and will shape who it is that you will become.
