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.
.

Ninpo Must Be Taught By Kuden | Bansenshukai Historical Ninjutsu Training | Ninja Martial Arts

In this video I share a quote from the Bansenshukai regarding the importance of keeping ninjutsu secret and only teaching those that are truly able to understand the depth of ninpo.

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.

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).

Real Ninjutsu Training? What is your fucking problem?

Today I am here to ask you a very simple question. What is your fucking problem? Before I begin with today’s lesson and question for all of you, I feel that I need to give you a little background story so you understand where I am coming from.

As many of you know, I’m the only Transgender person who has created her own martial arts organization and has gown her business to be a worldwide international school of classical Japanese martial arts.

I started the Budo Ryu Kai back in 2004, and I’ve never looked back! In the past 16+ years, I have created my own label and trademark writing 6 books, producing over 50+ DVDs, hundreds of downloads and establishing a complete online school for classical ninjutsu & bujutsu (just to say a few of my accomplishments). However, with all of that, it is not easy being a Transgender Woman in the world of combat & survival.

All over the internet, there has been so many hateful people that’s posted so many lies, false statements and Fake News about myself, my training/experience, my organization (Budo Ryu Kai) and the art that I teach (Budo Ryu Ninjutsu). Today’s topic has not much to do with the Haters, but have you noticed that I never stopped doing what I do, just because closed minded people want to trash me? I never have and I never will. I’m not that weak.

To add more fuel, NO ONE has taken the barrage of online attacks that I have. Even the “others” in the “Ninjutsu Community” who take A LOT of attacks themselves fire shots and attack me! Let me share with you a true story. About a year or so ago, there were 5 people, all of whom you would think are “mortal enemies”. They contacted me to talk to me about other “people/groups”. They all shared private screenshots of emails and social media messages of specific people/groups bashing me and trying to attack my school, my business, my book reviews, etc… Now, these emails and messages that were shared with me were of people that I didn’t like, but I didn’t think we were on bad terms either – and to be honest, I was a little taken back that these people/groups were organizing an attack towards me and my school. When these “mortal enemies” shared with me this knowledge, I did not say anything except thank you and went on my way. I get why they did it. “They” (the mortal enemies) did not want me ‘teaming up” with certain groups because it makes it more difficult for them to attack them. As they (the mortal enemies) and the people/groups that they were sharing emails/messages from, are not on good terms either.

Anyway, after all of that, I simply said thank you for the information. Never said anything and kept doing what I do. I’ve never stopped doing what I do, just because a closed minded person/group wants to attack myself or my school. I never have and I never will. I’m not weak. I am not part of any group. I stand on my own…

Why do they do this? All of these hateful people do this for two reasons. (1) They’re an insecure asshole. Unfortunately it’s not illegal to be an asshole. (2) They are threatened by my success. All of them have taken shots and me and here I am. Still standing and still in business. Not only am I still standing and still in business. I am still doing what I do with honor, respect, dignity, loyalty and integrity. Not one time have a made a post about a person who posted about me. Not one time have a made a video about a person who made a video about me. I just keep on keeping on.

Sure, I will always talk about “situations” and “experiences”. I am a teacher. So I always will. But I never address anyone by name or attack/bash any organization. There is no need for me to do that. Its weak… and I’m not weak.

So with all of that knowledge – why have you not attained the goals that you have wanted to attain? Look at all of the shit that I go through ever day! I am a transgender woman who teaches combat for a living, in a community full of very conservative people – whom many are very closed minded, hateful, racist, prejudice bigots. Trust me y’all – whatever it is that you want to do, it cannot be near as bad as what I go through everyday. So why have you not gone after what it is that you want? You scared…?

Why are you in the same place that you were in, when you were upset about the position that you are in? Why are you not succeeding? Why are you not going after the things that you want? Why are you settling for failure? Why are you not doing what you want to do? What is stopping you? What is your fucking problem?

The only thing we have on this planet is time. When your time is up, then you are up. You need to spend more time living a life rather than taking all of your time making a life. Life is too short.

Thank you again for all of you support! Untill next time, take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of budo.

REAL / Authentic / Classical / Traditional – Ninjutsu Training

Someone just sent me something that is absolutely ridiculous and to be blunt, fucking pathetic. There are so many people that trash me, belittle me and my school, and call me fake and fraud, yet make sure they watch everything that I do, then turn around and profit off of what I teach…

Example:
10+ years ago, I was writing about ninja survival skills (seizonjutsu) and teaching how to make fire, find water, etc… No one in the ninjutsu community was even discussing these skills at all. Not openly online and not making videos on YouTube about this subject. Now the very same people that trash me, call me fake and fraud are writing books on the very EXACT SAME “ninja survival skills” that I teach – then turn around and say how bad my martial arts / ninjutsu is. How the hell are they going to trash me, then turn around take my online lessons and make money off of my teachings?

Another Example:
For years, I’ve been talking about esoteric magick and have been teaching “ninja magick”. For Years! The very same people who trash me, belittle me, mock me for being a witch, etc… are now talking about the very EXACT SAME “ninja magick” that I’ve been teaching for years!

These people are literally stealing from me, to put money in their pockets!

As a woman who teaches martial arts, I already don’t get a fair shake, because the majority of martial arts students are men, and they do not want to learn how to “fight” from a woman.

As a transgender woman who teaches martial arts, I do not get a fair shake, because there are so many hateful, closed minded, prejudice bigots that do not want to be around transgender people because it makes them feel “uncomfortable”.

As a ninjutsu teacher, I do not get a fair share, because in the “World of Martial Arts” ninjutsu is seen as a joke. It is seen as people who dress in black and larp around like they’re playing a live action role play of D&D or something…

So as a woman, a transgender woman, who teaches ninjutsu it’s already tough enough in this business. However… With all of the shit thrown at me, I have NEVER stopped.  Because I know that I am right and I’ve always believed that the truth will always prevail.  Now, I’m starting the rethink that a little.  Maybe the majority of people don’t want real training. Maybe the majority don’t want the truth…

The ninjutsu community is either full of people who DO NOT train and have an active library card and huge book collection. Or, people who are part of the popular chains of ninpo schools that are bullshit.  They DO NOT spar. They DO NOT have physical requirements. They DO NOT push their students at all. They give out high rank very easy. For those of you who do not know, easy rank = money in the martial arts.

Then there is me… I am the one that has literally SHUT DOWN Budo Ryu Ninjutsu schools and closed the doors because the teachers of these schools (who were my own students at the time),  DO NOT live up to my standard of excellence that I demand! Some think that is crazy, because it alters “growth of a business”. But I don’t give a shit. Anyone who is in the Budo Ryu Kai and does not want to do what we do, they will be dismissed.  It is that simple!

They (the ones that are no longer with the Budo Ryu Kai) want to operate a dojo like all of these money making bullshido mcdojo’s! I WILL NOT HAVE IT! Here we do it right! You have to train the Mind-Body-Spirit! Here you have to learn tradition and be able to protect yourself and survive! I will not bend on these rules!

If you refuse to do what is required, then you need to leave the organization.

So not only do I get people all over the internet that trash the hell out of me, just because me being me does not fit. But I also get people who can’t take the training here at the Budo Ryu Kai and leave and trash the hell out of me. When I am doing everything, exactly how it is written in the ancient text!

90% of all of “Martial Arts” is bullshit.
90% of the “Ninjutsu Community” is bullshit.
Know that! 9 out of 10 things you read online is bullshit…
 
I will NOT speak for any other organization. But if you are serious about getting in shape, training hard and learning the ancient ways of the warrior. If you are truly interested in studying authentic ninjutsu and classical samurai bujutsu; check out our website: www.BudoRyuNinjutsu.com. There you will find what you are looking for.

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

Only The Best Survive

Budo Ryu Kai Students,

I know that this is a holiday weekend and that many of you are spending time with your family and friends, as you should.  But do not stray away from your training.  The review videos this week has been below average. Although this is expected during a holiday week, it is not expected the following week. So get focused on what it is that you are training for. Maintain your focus and continue to train every day to make yourself better.

.

Stay focused on what it is that we do.  Too much is too much.  More is not better, better is better. I am seeing many people post many books and study materials about the ninja and samurai from sources that have nothing to do with the Budo Ryu Kai.  Not that this is bad, but it does not help with your training in these warrior arts. Know that when you are trying to be more productive with your training.

.

Here we constantly push ourselves through pain.  I understand that the majority of people think that my training methods are insane and too difficult.  But I do not care what these weak minded people think. LIFE IS PAIN! If you cannot take pain, push yourself through pain and continue on, than you do not need to train here.  Not everyone is going to be a black belt here.  Why?… because not everyone is worthy of it. I know that this sounds really cold, but it is the truth… and sometimes the truth hurts.

.

— [STUDENTS] —

If you do not want to keep up with the physical conditioning that is that is required here at the Budo Ryu Kai, than you will not succeed here. If this bothers you, leave.

.

If you do not want to learn the true history and tradition of the ninja and samurai, than you will not succeed here. If this bothers you, leave.

.

If you do not want to submerge yourself in the study of these 7 warrior traditions and their kata, than you will not succeed here. If this bothers you, leave.

.

If you do not want to work on, and keep up with, all of the modern variations of the kata, then extract the simplistic methods for reality based self defense, than you will not succeed here. If this bothers you, leave.

.

There are many other organizations that will take your money and sell you a bunch of easy bullshit, stroke you pathetic ego and let you do what you want. So if you want easy, you need to leave the Budo Ryu Kai.

.

— [INSTRUCTORS] —

Remember, you have to keep up with your training as a student, as well as maintain 2 ranks above your highest ranking student. If you do not maintain 2 ranks or more above your highest ranking student, than you cannot promote any student until you do so. This is a requirement that HAS ALWAYS and WILL ALWAYS be in place.  I REFUSE to have inflated rank in this organization!  The easiest way to keep that bullshit from happening is to make sure that the instructors have to maintain their training as well.

.

In the last 15+ years of the Budo Ryu Kai, I have had 6 instructors that DID NOT keep to this requirement.  When I told them that they cannot promote their students until they get caught up with their personal training, ALL OF THEM left the organization.  I am not saying that this is “THE” reason for all of them leaving the Budo Ryu Kai.  But 100% of all instructors that have left did not keep to this requirement and this was an issue at the time of their departure.

.

So if you are an instructor here at the Budo Ryu Kai and you do not want to make sure that your training is up to the standard of this organization, than leave! I refuse to have instructors that cannot do what they claim to do!  Here we will not have any out of shape, overweight teachers who ask students to do things that they themselves will not do. There is nothing worse than an instructor with no discipline, no dedication and no loyalty! If you cannot keep to the instructors guidelines than you will not succeed here at the Budo Ryu Kai!  I demand excellence!  If this bothers you, leave.

.

“Be careful who you call your friends. I’d rather have four quarters than one hundred pennies.” – Al Capone

.

No one in the ninjutsu community has endured the smear campaign that I have had to endure over the last 15+ years.  I AM GOING NO WHERE! However, I refuse to stand up against these hateful closed minded prejudice bigots and then allow the students and instructors to not maintain the excellence that I demand. Only the best will survive here.

.

If you are reading this and you are not a student or instructor of the Budo Ryu Kai and are interested in authentic ninjutsu and classical samurai bujutsu? Check out our website:  www.BudoRyuNinjutsu.com

.

Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo
