Stay Away from Hate & Negativity

Today’s Lesson | Stay Away From Hate & Negativity
.
Yesterday I went out for a walk to shoot a video and share some of my thoughts on the MartialArts with all of you. This video was me going over my journey of teaching Ninjutsu all of these years. The video included all of the ups and the downs and the good and bad lessons that I learned along the way. The video was about 1 hour long, which means it would be about 40 min. once I edit and cut it down.
.
In the video I found myself drifting and discussing topics that were toxic and would not lead to any positive outcome at all. So I decided that I would not post the video. I know that there are many people in all of the martial arts community that are very “open” and “public” about voicing their opinions and trashing and hurting others. But as I have stated many times, I will never take part in that. However, because I have said this statement numerous times, that is why I have been taken advantage of so many times in the past. Certain people knew they could walk on me, knowing I was not going to “out them” publicly.
.
There is an old saying:
“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall from anything.”
.
Regardless if you believe what I believe or practice what I practice, if you know me, than you know I live a very Esoteric life. I do believe in Magic / Magick, universal energy, Chakra, Karma, 3 fold law, etc… Because of my spiritual position I do not allow myself to take part in situations or align myself with people that can bring negativity towards me in anyway. Which is one of the basic lessons of Self Defense; Best Defense is to not be there.
.
Instead of me using personal experiences and telling you about how “this person” and “that person” did me wrong, using conniving, backstabbing and treacherous methods so that they could “advance” or “benefit” either personally or professionally by using me and my friendship. I am going to give you a more “public” example so that you understand my point.
.
See, if I was to use the personal experience as an example and talk about “this person” and “that person”, I would be talking about things that are 100% true, but happened behind the scenes. Which means “this person” and “that person” would simply deny the allegations and maintain whatever their positions are with whatever situation that I was talking about. So to make this more clear. Let me give you an example of the bullshit that I stay away from that is very public and cannot be argued.
.
There is a man online who has never met me, never trained with me, yet has made numerous videos and posts about me. In a video he posted, he dressed up as a woman, mocked me, belittled me, then placed a banana between his legs and cut it off making fun of me because I am a Transgender Woman. So many people attach themselves to this hateful vulgar person and I do not understand why. From a martial arts perspective he does not have high rank at all, nor is he a teacher. He may have a large book collection but his attitude is so vile and disgusting, I do not understand why anyone would want to associate themselves with this person at all. It does speak very loud and clear about those that would condone this individual and still want to align themselves personally and professionally.
.
This person that I am speaking of is so hateful; at one time, he posted a series of videos attacking a specific individual on YouTube. In the end, the man that he was attacking, hung himself because of this individuals hateful online bullying. Knowing that, there are still people to this day that will speak his name in their videos as though this man is an authority, attempting to give him a platform to share his knowledge, when the facts are, having a large book collection does not make you an authority, nor does it mean you are knowledgeable.
.
Have you ever noticed that the majority of the people that take this hateful approach online are all depressed, alone and do not have too many friends? They seem to think that having an “online base” makes them more “likeable”. But in fact, it is the opposite. The majority of them do not have many friends because no one wants to be around them.
.
Have you also noticed that the majority of these people are single, not married and do not have kids? One could argue that this is a personal decision, but very few would argue that family, love and acceptance are the most important aspects towards happiness in life. I do not hate/dislike any of these people, including the individual that I used as an example earlier. I feel sorry for all of them. Because they will never truly understand or experience what it is that I am talking about.
.
Again, you need to stand for something or you will fall for anything. You are better than that. Never lower your standards, even if everyone around is doing so. Remember the people that are trying to pull you down are already below you. Stand up for what you believe in. It does not matter if the whole “Ninjutsu Community” if full of hateful, narcissistic, self centered, self absorbing egotistical Prejudice bigots. I will never lower my standard of excellence and will still provide an opportunity for those who want to train in authentic ninjutsu classical samurai Bujutsu in a positive environment.
.
Have you noticed that the weaker always travel in groups? You see this in nature too. The weaker animals always travel in groups because they feel safer, even if they do not like other members of their group. The strong always seem to be okay with standing on their own feet and not aligning themselves with others.
.
I stand alone with my teaching in ninjutsu. Yet, many of the weak want to always congregate and feed off of each other, yet self-proclaim themselves as doing something great. When in reality, behind the scenes, they are the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
.
In the Budo Ryu Kai, we have a 100% Zero Hate Policy. If anyone posts hate they will be dismissed. If anyone supports hate, they will be dismissed. If anyone wants to align themselves with hateful people, they will be dismissed. It is that simple.
.
To give you an example of this, I am a Transgender woman married to a woman of color and we have mixed kids. If someone wanted to be a member of the KKK and support David Duke (grand-wizard of the KKK), then they will not be a member here. I am not going to have a student that supports a hateful organization that is attacking me and my family along with many other Budo Ryu Ninjutsu students of color as well as their families. However, everyone knows that I am a transgender woman married to a woman of color and we have mixed kids. So I could give examples on hateful groups against LGBTQ, transgender people, gay marriage, etc. But I am in hope that you understand where I am going with this point.
.
See the majority of the weak, are not in the same position that I am in. I am married, with kids. So I have to set an example for my children. I am a teacher of the arts and I have thousands of students all over the world who look up to me for guidance. Am I human? Yes. I would love to get online and put them all on blast. But that action goes against everything that I stand for, and I have a much larger responsibility then all of them and I will not lower myself to their level.
.
I am in hopes that all of you can learn something from this lesson. Take care, be safe and good luck in your journey of Budo.

5 Day Total Body Martial Arts Training Workout Program! | Increase Your Strength & Endurance!

In this video I give a tutorial lesson on how you can add a basic 5 day total body fitness workout to your martial arts training. This will help you increase strength and endurance as well as your heath and fitness levels!

As many of you know, I am HUGE on health, wellness, fitness and conditioning within the martial arts. To me, it makes ZERO sense to train in the martial arts and not have the physical ability to even do what it is that you are training to do. The secret is in training; pushing your mind, body and spirit to levels that it has never been! Learning how to take pain and keep moving forward! Making your body as strong as the sword, and the mind as sharp as the blade!

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).

Budo Ryu Kai Dojo Discussion | Toughen Up! Train with Intensity! | Ninjutsu Martial Arts Training

In this video, I discuss the importance of training with intensity! If you learn how to be tough, you can have a huge advantage in the world of self-defense. In the world that we live in, there are so many weak ass, pathetic cowards that have only learned how to fight with words and keyboards.  Most of them have a huge Amazon book collections and know their way around a library.  NONE OF THEM can actually fight.  NONE OF THEM will be able to protect themselves in a real fight.  ALL OF THEM RUN THEIR MOUTH & POST CRAP ONLINE.  Why?  Because it makes them feel better about themselves.

In the real world, we have to train with more intensity to be able to withstand any attack that may come our way.  We need to be able to protect ourselves and the ones that we love against all forms of violence.  The only way to do this is to train.  At the end of the day, if you cannot physically do what you need to do, when you need to do it, you will fail. Your life or your loved ones life may depend on your training. So train like it does.

Importance of Paying Your Dues in the Martial Arts | Student Training Fees & Responsibilities

In this video I discuss the importance of students taking care of their responsibilities, monthly dues and training fees.

 

We live in a world where there are so many that feel they are entitled and deserve free training. Most of these individuals do not understand the importance of hard work.

 

Then you have those who do work hard, but they do not have any honor, respect, dignity or loyalty to their teacher or dojo. They will disrespect their sensei and cheat the dojo because they are so self-centered, egotistical and arrogant that they feel they do not have to take care of their responsibilities.  If they get what they want, they will hang everyone out to dry just so they can advance.

 

Years ago, when I decided to teach martial arts fulltime, I knew that I was never going to be rich.  But, I was not doing this to be rich.  I was teaching martial arts because I wanted to help people through the study and training of martial arts. It’s just sad that in doing so, I have to deal with people who “say” they have honor, when in fact, they do not…..

Ground Fighting Defensive Training Drill | Jujutsu Martial Arts Techniques

 

In this video, I teach a ground fighting defensive training drill. This is a drill that will help your defensive skills as well as better your reversal skills in a combative situation. THERE IS A BENEFIT IN LEARNING HOW TO TAKE A PUNCH! THERE IS A BENEFIT IN LEARNING HOW TO BE TOUGH!

 

So many schools only focus on offense. How can you get this lock? How can you set up this choke? But the reality is, in a self defense situation, you never know when the attack is going to happen. More times than not, you will be attacked when you least expect it, you will need to defend the attack, better your position before you can utilize your offensive tactics. This is why we run this drill. The help the students better their defensive skills!
