Kunoichi (くノ一) The Woman Ninja | Ninjutsu Training Techniques (Ninpo) | Woman’s Self-Defense

In this video, I discuss the Kunoichi (くノ一). A kunoichi is a woman practitioner of ninjutsu (ninpo). During the feudal period of Japan, ninja were used as assassins, spies, scouts and messengers. The training of the kunoichi differed slightly from the training given to male ninja, although they had a common core of martial arts training, such as taijutsu, kenjutsu, and ninjutsu. Kunoichi training tended to prioritize traditional female skills.
.
The eighth volume of the Bansenshukai written in 1676 by Fujibayashi Yasutake, describes the art of Kunoichi-no-jutsu (くノ一の術, Ninjutsu of female ninja). This can be translated as “a technique to use a female” and was employed for infiltration purposes. The Bansenshukai compiles the knowledge of various ninja clans from the Iga and Koka regions dedicated to the formation and understanding of ninjutsu. According to this document, the main function of the Kunoichi was espionage, finding functions in enemy residence, to gather knowledge, gain trust and or listen to conversations.
.
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.
.
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).

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.

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.
.

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.

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.

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.

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.
.

Donald Trump is an Embarrassment To The United States of America

I DO NOT SAY THIS LIGHTLY….
(read in full before you post stupid comments)
.
The hate, prejudice and violence that have been going on now for the last 3 years+ is ridiculous.  The lack of leadership and increased acceptance of greed and separation for the last 3 years+ is saddening.
.
I want to start by saying Donald Trump is a disgusting, vile and hateful person. He is everything that is wrong with America.  Nothing is more saddening than having a person born into a rich family that has never worked for anything, and is now the leader of the USA.
.
This is because there are those that are more concerned about money, than Freedom. There are those that are more concerned about the betterment of “certain groups”, rather than the betterment of all people.
.
The founding fathers left a system that was ruled by the rich and wealthy.  They left a King & Queen of individual rule, for democracy and freedom. Well, at least that is what we were told in school here in the United States.  I question that ideal now, as I have seen nothing about freedom from this current administration.  All I’ve seen is a dictator that has done nothing but take away rights from anyone, or any group of people, that does not agree with his choices and decisions.
.
I’ve already said this to all of my thousands of students world wide, but I want to make the statement again before I continue my thoughts.  If you support Donald Trump, you are NOT welcome in this organization. This decision is final and with NO exceptions. Donald Trump is a hateful, racist, prejudice bigot and myself and this organization WILL NOT support such ideals.
.
In this organization I teach people how to survive in extreme violent and intense situations. I teach hand-to-hand combat, weaponry, concealed carry, survival skills, hunting, tracking… the list goes on and on.  I refuse to train anyone who already has hate in their heart and support hateful ideals.
.
When I made this statement to all of my students, I thought that I would lose 50% of my students.  I was okay with that. As a leader, I need to stand up for what is right and set the example for my students all over the world.  To my surprise, only 1 student with rank decided to leave to support Donald Trump.  Only one… and surprisingly, he’s not even a “Republican”. I have also “un-friended” and “un-followed” EVERYONE that’s supporting such a hateful individual on ALL of my social media.
.
ARE REPUBLICANS BAD PEOPLE?
No, not at all, but they are being played. I do not have any bad feelings towards anyone who voted for Donald Trump in the beginning.  He had a good pitch and let’s be honest, the Democrats (DNC) and the Republicans (RNC) gave us shit to choose from.  But remember the release of all of the “DNC Emails” during Trumps 2016 presidential campaign?  This was a tactic that Trump used to his advantage during this time.  Also, during this time ALL of the republicans hated Trump.  They despised him.  All of the major players: Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and John McCain all trashed him as being a xenophobic racist.  Then, all of a sudden, once Trump gets in, all of the Republicans that were against him, started openly supporting him…  Why?  Well, if you are good enough to hack the DNC, you are good enough to hack the RNC.  All politicians are crooked, and I am sure they all followed suit so that their truth was not exposed. I am sure that Trump also used this to his advantage.  Even though I do not blame those that voted for him in the beginning, I do blame those who continue to support him after everything that he has done.
.
So when people say, “Republicans are bad people”, I disagree. I do understand that there are those that just want to support the party. There is nothing wrong with that, nor does that make them bad people.  Example: The Kansas City Chiefs won the Superbowl the last year. Within the last year or so there were a few players on the Chiefs team that were arrested for domestic abuse, beating their kids and one player was dragging a woman through the halls of a hotel and beating her.  There are these kinds of players on ALL NFL teams.  Just because there are a few bad players does not mean that you cannot support your team.  So, if you are cheering for the Chiefs and not the man that beat a woman in the hallway; that is okay.  Same thing here, you can support a “team” (republicans), without supporting the hateful individual that is causing domestic abuse and violence (Donald Trump).
.
Yesterday Anonymous posted official Court Documents of a lawsuit from Epstein to Trump.  Remember Epstein, the man that was hung in jail. Donald Trump keeps saying he is going to “Drain the Swamp” but have you noticed he has not got rid of one corrupt politician yet.  The only people he’s gotten rid of, is his own administration who does not agree with him.  Now we find that he was in a lawsuit with Epstein regarding lots of money and actions with an under age child and Epstein gets hung in a protected cell?  See the blame originally was on other people, but with the newly released documents it is hard to believe that he did not have anything to do with Epstein’s death.
.
The CIA, FBI and other intelligence agencies ALL SAY that Russia meddled in the election to help Donald Trump. Why?  Why would Russia want Trump to be elected? Well, that answer is obvious and only those with a lack of “common sense” cannot see it. However, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
The Mueller Report proves that that the Trump campaign knew of Russian involvement and did nothing.  It also shows that there are 10 counts of obstruction of justice! What stems from this?  The DOJ saying that you cannot indict a sitting president and Mueller saying that he can be indicted as soon as he leaves office. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
It is an absolute fact that David Duke and the KKK were the biggest financial supporters of the 2016 Trump Presidential Campaign and Donald Trumps dad was a high ranking member in the KKK.
.
Today, there were hundreds of twitter accounts that were linked to organized crime during all of these protests.  ALL OF THESE ACCOUNTS were linked to White Supremacist groups! ALL OF THEM! Yes, there are organized groups of criminals that are planning to destroy cities that are protesting and these accounts are linked to White Supremacists groups. Let that sink in… Remember Charlottesville, VA?
.
No matter how many bad things have happen during the last 3+ years, No action has been taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
Bill Clinton got impeached for lying about a blowjob.  Donald Trump lied about seeing Stormy Daniels and the hush money payments.  Then when the checks were presented in court… nothing was done. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
He placed an oil pipeline through Native American Land just to make money.  To do this, he involved the military to make sure that the Natives would leave their land so the oil pipe line goes through. The pipeline goes in and then within a few months, the pipeline bursts and oil desecrates their sacred land. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
Trump says Mexico is going to pay for “The Wall”. That didn’t happen, nor did the construction of “The Wall” happen. What did happen was his absolute hatred and attacks towards the Hispanic community and separating of families and children at the boarder. Donald Trump acted like a heartless dictator, not a president of a free nation. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
He tried to ban people of a specific religion from entering this country.  That was ruled by the federal courts as being unconstitutional and was stricken down.  When this happened, not one Republican Senator said anything. Republicans say they are “constitutional conservatives”.  But when Trump does something deemed unconstitutional by federal courts, they did not pursue any action (legally or politically) against Trump or his Administration.
.
He tried to ban transgender people from working in the military.  Two times he tried this and both times it was ruled by the federal courts as being unconstitutional and was stricken down. Yet again, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
In Charlottesville, VA… He openly supported the torch-wielding white supremacists chanting “You will not replace us!”.  What happened there?  The non-violent protesters were ran over by a hateful white supremacist.  Even though Trump openly made very clear and definitive support of racism, no action was taken (legally or politically) against the Trump or his Administration.
.
For months, we had a black athlete, exercise his 1st Amendment rights and kneeled in protest against police brutality against the Black Community.  He was met with mockery and hate by our president.  A man that swore to protect the constitution, ridiculed a man for exercising his 1st amendment rights.  Again, no action was taken against the Trump Administration (legally or politically) and in fact, the “MAGA FOLLOWERS” increased their support of him.
.
Now a black man dies at the hands of a white cop.  A white cop that is kneeling on the back of a black mans neck!  Nothing is said by trump. With all of the hate, prejudice and violence that Trump has encouraged, people are mad, upset and hurt.  We see thousands protesting correctly with no violence or destruction… We also see small organized groups creating MASSIVE destruction and we find out today that these groups are linked to White Supremacist hate groups.  Not a word from the White House… and I am sure, no action will be taken (legally or politically) against Trump or his Administration.
.
Yesterday our president (After a phone call with Vladimir Putin) threatens Martial Law and there are many that are supportive of it.  See the problem is the ones that are supporting it, are not getting their rights taken away.  Imagine what would happen if Trump took away guns.  The 2nd Amendment conservatives would riot, protest and cause destruction.  Just see how many memes are mad by the very thought of guns being taken away.  Look at all of the people saying what they’d do if you take away their “AR”… All of them claim violent action.  But when it is not “their” rights taken away, “they” do not care.
.
When the LGBTQ community is attacked, “they” do not care.
When any Religion of than Christianity is attacked, “they” do not care.
When any race/ethnicity is attacked other than white, “they” do not care.
When the poor is attacked, “they” do not care.
When the people of the inner cities are attacked, “they” do not care.
.
Hate is wrong.
Violence is not the answer.
Donald Trump is an embarrassment to this country and what it stands for.
.
As a woman who teaches combat and survival for a living, in a world full of people who think woman are not on the same level as men, I deal with prejudice everyday.  As a transgender woman who teaches combat and survival for a living, in a world full of people who think trans-people are not on the same level, I deal with bigotry everyday.
.
I deal with bigotry & hate every day and I stand against it, everyday.
.
I am the only transgender person who runs an international school of martial arts in the world.  I have attained many awards and accolades and I am the only non-Japanese to be awarded “Menkyo Kaiden (grandmaster; highest level license) of a Koryu Japanese martial art. Through my success in the martial arts, I have wrote 6 books, 50+ DVDs, develop a complete online dojo with nearly 10,000 members world wide! I have been on every radio channel and in every major magazine. One thing about being me, I do get a lot of attention.  Just last month my YouTube Channel got over 2.2 Million Views! But with this popularity comes responsibility, and I need to use it for the betterment of the people.
.
I am not going to stand against hate, prejudice and bigotry everyday and then train individuals that support those ideals. If you want to support Donald Trump, you need to dismiss yourself from this organization.
.
“We The People” need to do what is right. We need to stop hurting each other, and placing the blame on the government who is in control of the rule of law.
.
Thank you very much for your love and support.  Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of budo…

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.

Shurikenjutsu Kihon | Shuriken Basic Training Techniques | Ninja Martial Arts: Ninjutsu, Ninpo

In this video “Shurikenjutsu Kihon”, I go over the basic knowledge and introduction of the use, the training and techniques of the shuriken. I also discuss how the ninja would have used this particular “kakushi buki (hidden weapon) on covert stealth missions, such as night raids. I also teach its historical position within the koryu; as this “weapon”, is more historically attached to samurai bujutsu, than it is to historical ninjutsu.
.
Shurikenjutsu (手裏剣術) is a general term describing the traditional Japanese martial arts of throwing shuriken, which are small, hand-held weapons/blades used primarily by the Samurai in feudal Japan, such as metal spikes bō shuriken, circular plates of metal known as hira shuriken, and knives (tantō).
.
Shurikenjutsu was usually taught among the sogo-bugei, or comprehensive martial arts systems of Japan, as a supplemental art to those more commonly practiced such as kenjutsu, iaijutsu, sojutsu, bōjutsu, etc… and is much less prevalent today than it was in the feudal era.
.
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).

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.

The Art of Koka-ryu Kempo: True Traditional Budo Training | Martial Arts Fighting Techniques

In this video, I share a brief demonstration on The Art of Koka Ryu Kempo.

[History of the Art, taken from www.BudoRyuNinjutsu.com]

Koka Ryu Kempo (甲賀流拳法) was constructed by Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson as a system for self-improvement, self-discipline and self-protection.  Soke Anshu trained in many different kenpo / kempo systems and wanted to compile all of her training into one practice of kempo calling it, Koka-ryu Kempo.  The Art of Koka-ryu Kempo is a direct lineage of Kosei Ryu Kempo which originated from the Shiga prefecture of Japan, also known as Koka.

In 2006 Soke Anshu inherited the art of Kosei-ryu Kempo, making her the 4th Soke within its lineage.  However; since she was already teaching kempo as part of the Budo Ryu Kai curriculum, she had to make a choice.  To either cut out all of the kempo teachings that are not Kosei-ryu, and only teach the Kosei-ryu methods, or to take the art of Kosei-ryu Kempo that she inherited, and combine it with her other kempo training and experiences.

Soke Anshu decided to combine all of her kempo training, principals, and strategies together under the Budo Ryu banner; constructing the art of Koka-ryu Kempo.  Since Kosei-ryu came from the Shiga prefecture of Japan, and it’s the fundamental base of the Budo Ryu kempo curriculum, it is only fitting to have named the kempo training Koka-ryu Kempo which translates out as: “Koka School of Fist Fighting”.
