Anshu Christa Jacobson – Darkness

Soke Christa Jacobson

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson

Photo Taken – 6.2.2011

“Just as the ninja operated in the shadows centuries ago in Japan, a new master of the art again comes from the darkness. Training you has been my greatest accomplishment, and it is clear the student has surpassed her master.”

Kobayashi Ichiro; 20th Soke Tomo Ryu
(The day he awarded Anshu Menkyo Kaiden & Sokeship)

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

“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
Sir Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett
(“Terry” Pratchett – English Novelist)

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

Art is the desire of a person express them self, to display and share the reactions of their personality to the world.

In this photo I wanted to use the contrast of the room so that people would look at the arts behind me, yet keeping my body / silhouette directly of the middle of the picture, to help with the “IN / YO” of the photograph.

Just as the screen behind me shows the dramatic difference between tiger and dragon, the photo also shows the contrast between light and dark. This in itself is also a major lesson of ninjutsu.

The screen behind me was painted by Kano Tanyu in the edo period (1602-1674) The piece is called Dragon and Waves; Tiger among the Bamboo.

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson.

Kawagoe Rikishi Historical Museum – Kawagoe, Japan

I was asked to do a video promo for this museum as they have seen some of the video promos that I have made for the Historical Ninjutsu Research Team! Since I accepted this honor I wanted to share this video promo with you of the Kawagoe Rikishi Historical Museum.

A selection of famous samurai armor at the Kawagoe Rekishi museum in Kawagoe Japan. The museum is 15 minites from Kawagoe station in saitama. Follow the instructions in the video or search google earth for喜多院 Kitain Temple. Friendly museum!

*** Tell them you saw their museum on Youtube and they will let you hold guns and swords! Have fun! 🙂

I hope that you all enjoy the video promo! If you are in Japan, you should check out the museum first hand!
