Ku Gi (空誼) Meaning of Emptiness

Anshu Christa Jacobson

.

In the photo above Soke Anshu is teaching how to make traditional Metsubishi (目潰し) using egg shells and traditional powders and at the Budo Ryu Hombu Dojo.
.
One type of metsubushi was a powder made up of ashes, ground-up pepper, flour, and dirt. For severe damage, it could also include fine-ground glass or metal shavings. It was kept in hollowed-out eggs (happō), bamboo tubes or other small containers.
.
When confronted by an attacker, a shinobi would throw the metsubushi in the attacker’s eyes, taking advantage of the space between him / herself and blinding the attacker to either set up a lethal attack or to evade. *** Note *** this weapon / tool was also used by the Edo period Police / Samurai as well, similar to the use of modern pepper spray)
————————————————–
.
Voidness is that which stands right in the middle between this and that. The void is the all-inclusive, having no opposite. There is nothing which it excludes or opposes. It is living void, because all forms come out of it and whoever realizes the void is filled life and power and the love of all beings.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Doton-no-jutsu (土遁之術)

Doton-no-jutsu; Metsubushi

Shinobi no Mono Stealth Camp!

DOTON-NO-JUTSU (土遁之術)
METSUBUSHI (目潰)

Doton no jutsu: Literally “Earth Evasion”. Includes such concepts as using rocks, soil and land contours to aid in the ninja infiltration, evasion and deception.

In this photo here I am demonstrating how the ninja would use soil to throw into the eyes of the enemy as a means of escape. As this does attack the eyes the waza would be part of the metsubushi (目潰し) or eye closers.
