The Way (道)

Soke Christa Jacobson

 

Anshu Christa Jacobson teaching Tenjin-ryu Jujutsu Buke Waza (天神流柔術 武家技) at the Budo Ryu Hombu Dojo (武道流本部道場)

(Transcription)
“There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But in doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking, this understanding extends to everything.” – Yamamoto Tsunetomo; 1659-1719

(Translation)
If you are going to create art, their will be times that you spill the ink. If you are going to model, there are times that people do not look at the art. If you are going to farm the land, there are times that your crops don’t grow. If you are going to train in samurai bujutsu and authentic ninjutsu; there are times that you are going to be hurt.

If you are trying to find your way, there are times, as you are walking it will rain and you will be wet. You cannot learn without making mistakes, accept it, you are training in warrior arts, keep walking forward and the rain will stop sooner or later, and at that time, you will find your way.

I hope that you understand today’s lesson and can see my interpretation of this wonderful classic text on samurai bujutsu.

Thank you all for your support!
Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo.

Shinobi Mumon no Ikkan – The Gateless Gate

The Gateless Gate

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

 

“The great way has no gate;
There are a thousand different roads.
If you pass through this barrier once,
You will walk independently in the universe.”

The Gateless Gate (無門關)

The gateless gate is regarded as the greatest book of zen ever complied. It is a collection of 48 Chan (Zen) koans compiled in the early 13th century by the Chinese Zen master Wumen Hui-k’ai (無門慧開; 1183–1260).

This book was so profound even during the Sengoku Jidai (戦国時代); Samurai (侍)and Shinobi (忍び) families were reading these words as an aid towards enlightenment. In the Shoninki written by Natori Masatake of the Kishu-ryu school of Ninjutsu he writes:

“One of the most important things for you to do is always know everything you can of every place or province that is possible to know. When you are in that said province, be sure to read the feeling of the local people and do what is necessary according to the situation. If your mind is in total accordance with the “way” and understands reasoning and logic perfectly, than you can pass through the mumon no ikkan (The Gateless Gate; 無門關) “checkpoint”. This is a mental place that is barrier without a gateway that exist inside your mind. You will be able to pass through this mental stage because you will have a clear mind and reasonable thinking due to your training.” — Natori Masatake; Kishu-ryu; Shoninki
