Budo Ryu Kai | Authentic Ninjutsu & Bujutsu Training

JOIN THE BUDO RYU KAI ONLINE NINJUTSU DOJO!

Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson; Headmistress of the Budo Ryu Kai (a.k.a Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo), is one of the most sought after instructors in the traditional and eclectic martial traditions. She is a member of the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame and is said to be the only non-Japanese to receive a Menkyo Kaiden (The highest level license that exist in Japanese martial arts) and Sokeship (inheritor / grandmaster) of a koryu bujutsu / ninjutsu tradition.

In 2004 she wanted to bring back the tradition of Japanese Bujutsu, something that she felt has been lost in the modern world. To do this she established the Budo Ryu Kai, meaning School of the Warrior Way.

The Budo Ryu Kai (Budo Ryu Ninjutsu) was developed by her personal research, training, experience, as well as the collection of seven Japanese warrior traditions (also called Nana Musha-den) and combining all of these facets into a way to fully develop one’s mind, body and spirit as one. 

Budo Ryu Ninjutsu is Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson’s modern approach towards the study of ancient samurai & ninja warfare.  The seven warrior arts that are taught within the Budo Ryu Kai are:

Koka Ryu Kempo (甲賀流拳法)

Tenjin Ryū Jujutsu (天神流柔術)

Tomo Ryu Shinobijutsu (戸猛流忍術)

Eishin-ryū Iaijutsu (英信流居合術)

Koto Ryu Koppojutsu (虎倒流骨法術)

Gyokko-Ryū Kosshijutsu (玉虎流骨指術)

Togakure-ryū Ninpo Taijutsu (戸隠流忍法体術)

If you are interested in classical Japanese martial arts, but do not live next to a dojo, log on to our website and start your training in the Budo Ryu Kai Online Ninjutsu Dojo Today! www.BudoRyuNinjutsu.com


Ninjutsu Training: Ninja Use Of Camouflage (Mokuton-no-jutsu) Ninpo Martial Arts Training Techniques

In this video, I explain the ninja use of camouflage when utilizing mokuton-no-jutsu.  This is an extremely important skill for anyone who is studying the ninja martial arts.

These techniques are found in the Gotonpo (五遁法) section of the Togakure-ryu school of Ninpo Taijutsu (戸隠流忍法体術). In the video I say, that tonjutsu (evasion techniques) are ways to “evade reality”.  Although this is true, this message was taken from a larger lesson on the perception of reality, which is not part of this video.  So Tonjutsu is evasion skills, but it is important to know that you are evading from the vision, or the perception of the enemy.  So if you are using Mokuton-no-jutsu, you are using wood evasion skills to evade from the vision or perception of the enemy. . 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).

Togakure-ryu Ninpo Taijutsu: Key Points to Training your Kamae | Ninja Martial Arts (Ninjutsu)

In this video, I teach the key points and purpose to kamae when training in the ninja martial arts of Togakure-ryu Ninpo Taijutsu. Regardless of the Ninjusu ryuha that you are training in, kamae is a very important and essential aspect towards martial arts training.

.

In the Togakure-ryu (戸隠流) school of Ninpo Taijutsu there are 5 basic kamae that every student should master:

  • Ichi-no-Kamae (一之構)
  • Hachimonji-no-kamae (八文字之構)
  • Hira Ichimonji-no-Kamae (平一文字之構)
  • Happo Gakure-no-Kamae (八方隠之構)
  • Tonso-no-Kamae (遁走之構)

The first step towards training your kamae is understanding how to get into the proper position so that you can get a feeling of how the body moves and how you can shift your weight from this position. Although today’s video is a very basic understanding of the concept, you cannot master the kamae, without understanding the basics.

Togakure-ryu Ninja Biken: Hiryu-no-Ken | Ninjutsu Sword Fighting Training Techniques (Ninjato)

In this video, I teach an old ninjato/shinobigatana technique from the Togakure-ryu school of Ninpo Taijutsu.  This kata is from the Ninja Biken section called “Hiryu no Ken”, which means Flying Dragon Sword. I briefly go over the classical kata and explain some of the principals.  However, the purpose of this training session was to extracted some of the principals of the traditional kata and work various training drills to develop stronger skills with the ninjato/shinobi-gatana/ninja sword.

Zen Philosophy: In a Beginners Mind… | Ninjutsu Martial Arts Training Techniques (Ninpo)

In this video, I discuss the zen philosophy:

“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.”
– Shunryu Suzuki

In studying the old ways of the samurai and ninja, we need to understand and dedicate ourselves to honor, loyalty, discipline and code.  These things unfortunately are not popular actions of today and generally only talked about in old stories.  Here, at the Budo Ryu Kai, these actions hold great meaning towards our study of “the way”…

Flexibility of the Mind: DO NOT GIVE TOO MUCH | Martial Arts / Self-Defense Training Techniques

In this video, I discuss the importance of understanding the flexibility of the mind.  Too many times people give more energy towards one realm than the other. As martial artist we need to find balance in all realms. It does not matter if it is the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual realm; we need to give it – its proper place and proper energy to be able to see the whole picture clearly, find balance in life, as well as properly defend ourselves and the ones that we love.

The Greatest Ninja Night Raid in Japanese History | Ninjutsu Training Techniques (Ninpo)

In this video, I discuss the greatest ninja night raid in Japanese History!  As you all know I am the 21st Soke of the Tomo-ryu Ninja tradition and this historical account comes directly from my tradition!
.
Following the Battle of Okehazama in 1560, Tokugawa employed a group of eighty Kōga ninja, led by Tomo Sukesada. They were tasked to raid an outpost of the Imagawa clan. The account of this assault is given in the Mikawa Go Fudoki, where it was written that Tomo-ryu Kōga ninja infiltrated the castle, set fire to its towers, and killed the castellan along with two hundred of the garrison.

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.

Understanding the Historical Timeline of the Ninja | Ninjutsu History, Tradition & Training

In this video I (Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson) explain the importance of understanding the historical timeline of the ninja.  This is because as the era changed, so did the techniques and reasons why the ninja did what they did.  In the modern age, we are left with all of these techniques to study, understand and practice.  Many think that “all” of the techniques are from the Sengoku Jidai, the age of the warring states.  This is not true.  In fact, if you understand the time periods, you would then understand what techniques came from what era, the context of the techniques and why the art of ninjutsu transformed from the Sengoku Jidai, through the Edo Period and into the Meiji Period.

Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson: My Extreme Approach To Ninjutsu Training | Ninja Martial Arts (Ninpo)

In this video I (Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson) explain why my approach towards ninjutsu training and physical conditioning is so extreme. We live in a world where violence, aggression, prejudice and hate is on the rise.  The only way to excel and perform in a violent extreme situation is to be highly skilled in violence, through extreme training.

The Difference Between INNIN (Dark Ninjutsu) & YONIN (Light Ninjutsu) | Ninja Martial Arts Training

In this video I teach a historical ninjutsu lesson on the differences between Innin (dark ninjutsu) and Yonin (Light Ninjutsu).
.
INNIN (陰忍)
Dark Ninjutsu (also known as: Innin-jutsu and In-jutsu): This is spying and performing espionage out of the vision of your target. Generally camouflaged, wearing black, hiding within cover and staying in the shadows.
.
YONIN (陽忍)
Light Ninjutsu (also known as: Yonin-jutsu and Yo-jutsu): This is spying and performing espionage in the vision of your target. Generally in disguise under a false persona, walking through the crowds and interacting with people gathering information.

Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson | Kuji-In: The Nine Hand Seals | Ninja Martial Arts: Ninjutsu, Ninpo

This video is a very short clip of the actual full lesson.  This part of the video that is presented in a simple overview of the hand positions of the Kiji-In.  The Kuji-In roughly translates out as: The Nine Hand Seals.  Many people get the Kuji-In mixed up with a variety of other esoteric practices from this time period, such as: Kuji, Kuji In, Kuji Kiri and the Kuji Goshin-ho.  All of them are different, yet interrelated with one another.

How To Use Juji Shuriken In Combat: Shurikenjutsu Training Techniques | Ninja, Ninjutsu, Ninpo

In this video tutorial I teach the basic understanding of how to use the juji shuriken in combat.  This video is not how to throw the shuriken; this video is much deeper than that.  In this video I teach how and when to use the shuriken in combat.
.
I would like to add that every school has their own particular ways of throwing the shuriken. I teach that shurikenjutsu, along with all projectile weapons, is based on hitting the target and “form” is not as important.  Yes, there is “form” and “kamae”, but in the end, if you are not hitting the target, it does not matter how good your kamae is, it is wrong.
.
Here at the Budo Ryu Kai, we teach to throw all types of shuriken both right and left.  We also teach how to throw stepping into the throw as well as not stepping into the throw.  We also teach how to throw moving forwards, backwards and sideways, or any other method of combative movement that you can think of.
.

Random Thoughts: Government Control, It will get worse: Ninjutsu Training, Self Defense & Violence

In this video I discuss my thoughts on the 2020 Tomo-ryu Shinobijutsu Annual Keiko Training Event, Government Control and Social Violence.  Here at the Budo Ryu Kai we train to protect ourselves and the ones that we love. To do this, as martial artist, we need to be aware of our surroundings, the things that are going on, as well as knowing the facts of those that are in control of the government.

Cruisin’ Kansas City w/ Soke Anshu | Bansenshukai, Historical Ninjutsu Training & Ninja Martial Arts

In this video I give analogies on the topics of:

  • Power of the Book (Bansenshukai)
  • Supplements are not Substitutes (Ninjutsu Training)
  • Ancient Witchcraft Analogy (Ninjutsu Community)
  • Truth vs Fact (Ninjutsu Study)
  • Extreme Training for Extreme Results (Martial Arts / Self Defense)

.
This is a very lengthy video because I felt it was better for me to cover all of the angles of this one subject, rather than just approaching it from one angle. However, with that being said, I did leave out many things as well, and I can discuss those aspects in future videos.
.
To all of my students and supporters, please understand.  There is not substitute for training.  There is no book that will save your life and no magickal spell or magical pill that will protect you from violence. To protect yourself and the ones that you love, you need to train. Just as Miyamoto Musashi says: “The Way is in Training”.

Time To Reopn The Budo Ryu Kai Hombu Dojo | Kansas City Ninjutsu Training

Here is an update video regarding the reopening of the Budo Ryu Kai Hombu Dojo in Kansas City! This video is quite long and I do ramble a bit, but I do go over all of the information on the reopening of the Hombu Dojo.  There are things that I left out; as I felt it was better that I talk to my students 1 on 1 about some specific things. Also, there will be some things that we will need to change as we go through this process because this is a learning experience for all of us during these times.

How To Properly Apply Henka To Your Martial Arts Training | Ninjutsu, Ninpo, Bujutsu, Budo

In this video I discuss the method of how we utilize “henka” in our martial arts training at the Budo Ryu Kai.

Henka (変化) means: change; variation; alteration; mutation; transition; transformation; transfiguration; metamorphosis​.
.
In this video I detail the image of a tree and how the seed represents the kata.  If you train correctly and nurture good skills, you will grow a solid foundation and have strong roots.  From that, the tree will grow branches, limbs and leaves.  This is the henka.  Just as the branches and limbs are the variations and changes from the seed/root, the henka are the variations / changes from the kata. From here, you get the fruit.  This is the useable materials for survival and nourishment.  This is where we derive the goshinjutsu (reality based self defense) from the variation to help with our martial arts self defense training.

Seizonjutsu: Survival Training within Historical Ninjutsu | Ninja Martial Arts (Ninpo)

Facebook Post Here:
https://www.facebook.com/SokeAnshu/posts/2985723111472256

In this video, “Survival Training within Historical Ninjutsu”, I discuss a specific “jutsu” within the training of Tomo-ryu Shinobijutsu called seizonjutsu.  This is a specific aspect of training within Tomo-ryu, which is much different than that of other more popular ninjutsu ryuha such as Togakure-ryu Ninpo Taijutsu.
.
Schools such as the Bujinkan, Genbukan, Jinenkan, etc have never formally had “survival training”, in their curriculum.  There has never been a time that you see Masaaki Hatsumi or any other “Togakure-ryu” practitioner in Japan teach: primitive fire making, how to disinfect water while living off of the land, how to build shelters, tracking and survival skills.  Ever… They teach taijutsu, kobujutsu, etc.  That is not me being disrespectful towards them at all. That is me stating a fact.
.
I could say the same thing towards other martial arts such as: Taekwondo, Karate, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Aikido. They do not teach survival skills either as part of their martial art curriculum.  Again, that is not me being mean or hateful.  It is me stating a fact.
.
In 2010, I started making seizonjutsu lessons and posts more available in the public and in 2011, I wrote a book (Shinobi no Michi; The Way of the Ninja) detailing the importance of seizonjutsu and its importance within historical ninjutsu training. Then out of no where, all of these people that were trashing me, from these other organizations started teaching “Seizonjutsu”.  Some of them are even from some of the organizations that I stated above.
.
In the Budo Ryu Kai, we have 7 warrior traditions and the Togakure-ryu is one of them.  There is no “Seizonjutsu” in Togakure-ryu. I teach Togakure-ryu.  Like I stated above; There are no videos or books of Masaaki Hatsumi rubbing sticks to create primitive fire. Just look at the Togakure-ryu densho. There is nothing at all written about primitive survival training. However, there are many things that are specific to the Togakure-ryu, that are not found in any other ninjutsu ryuha as well.  But this post is not about Togakure-ryu, it is about Seizonjutu, which is a specific skill within Tomo-ryu. So anyone who is teaching Togakure-ryu and is adding “Seizonjutsu” to their curriculum got it from watching and reading my materials…
.
I will say there is a “grey area” with survival training within Togakure-ryu. As a teacher of the Togakure-ryu, I help many other teachers of this particular ryuha and they ask me many questions. The reason that “Seizonjutsu” is NOT within the Togakure-ryu is because they have a set of teachings called the TenChiJin and the individual skills, such as use of water (suiton) use of fire (katon) and so on are found in the TenChiJin.  So if you are a Togakure-ryu instructor.  Your survival teachings (if you are sticking to the densho) would be in the TenChiJin aspect of training. So if you teach the Togakure-ryu, shouldn’t call it Seizonjutsu, you should be calling it what is written in the densho, and that aspect of part of the TenChiJin.

Authentic Historical Ninjutsu & Classical Koryu Bujutsu Skills | Ninpo & Budo Training Demo

In this video I thought I would share with you a demonstration (demo) on authentic historical ninjutsu and classical koryu samurai bujutsu skills! I used the footage from our taikai events over the last 10 years, to create this fun demo for all of you!

There are so many “ninpo schools” that teach taijutsu and call it ninjutsu.  Ninjutsu is not taijutsu.  Ninjutsu is ninjutsu.  Here at the Budo Ryu Kai, we pride ourselves on the study and training of authentic ninjutsu and classical samurai bujutsu!

One of the reasons some of the larger “ninpo organizations” and members of these organizations like to belittle and trash me and my organization (Budo Ryu Kai), is simply because they know they are NOT teaching real historical ninjutsu. It is easier for the “established businesses/organizations” and “online haters and trolls” to keep doing what they are doing, even though they know they are wrong.  Regardless of how many attack me, the truth is the truth and if you are a student of the Budo Ryu Kai, studying Budo Ryu Ninjutsu, than you are without a doubt, 100%, studying true ninjutsu, bujutsu and kobujutsu.

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).
