GAMA-SAKU (鎌作; a.k.a kama-zukuri)

Kamazukuri

 

The image to the left (how to make a shinobigama) is taken from the ninpiden; 1560 by Hattori Hanzo. Image to the right depicts a shinobigama taken from the Iga NinjaMuseum.

______________________________

GAMA-SAKU (鎌作; a.k.a kama-zukuri)

The art of making sickles

NINIDEN (忍祕傳); 1560
HATTORI HANZO (服部 半蔵)

The blade should be 5 Sun (approx 15cm) in length and 9 Bu (approx 2.7cm) in width and should be made with a double edge on both sides.

The handle should be 5 Sun (approx 15cm) and 5 Bu (approx 16.5cm) or 6 Sun (approx 18cm). The end of the handle where the blade is should have a ring clamp of 8 Bu (approx 2.4 cm) and should be 1 Bu (approx 3mm) in thickness. To make the handle the wood from the Japanese evergreen oak; however you can also use the wood from the red cinnamon tree or the wood from the nara oak tree as well. The blade should be “V” shaped and symmetrical.

* Refer to the drawing on the right for the final shape of the kama.

* Hattori Hanzo made a mistake in the beginning of the text, setting the length of the blade at 5 “Bu”. This seems too short for a blade; however the measurements written next to the drawing reads 5 ”Sun” which is more appropriate for this shinobi tool.

* The term that is used in the text to indicate that the kama has a double edge is moroha (両刃). Although Hattori Hanzo uses the term, which translates double-blade or double-edge, it does not mean two sharp edges. To understand this better, one should read this as one sharp edge that is sharpened on both sides. So when you sharpen the blade, sharpen one side of the bottom of the blade, then one side on the top of the blade, this is also to be understood that the sharp edges are on opposite sides of the blade.

* It is noted that even though artistically Hattori Hanzo does not draw the kama with a “V” like image, he does state that the blade should be “V” shaped. This is easily understood when looking at the shinobigama that is displayed in the Iga Ninja museum.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Darkness

Soke Christa Jacobson

Soke; Anshu Christa Jacobson

Photo Taken – 6.2.2011

“Just as the ninja operated in the shadows centuries ago in Japan, a new master of the art again comes from the darkness. Training you has been my greatest accomplishment, and it is clear the student has surpassed her master.”

Kobayashi Ichiro; 20th Soke Tomo Ryu
(The day he awarded Anshu Menkyo Kaiden & Sokeship)

*********************

“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
Sir Terence David John “Terry” Pratchett
(“Terry” Pratchett – English Novelist)

*********************

Art is the desire of a person express them self, to display and share the reactions of their personality to the world.

In this photo I wanted to use the contrast of the room so that people would look at the arts behind me, yet keeping my body / silhouette directly of the middle of the picture, to help with the “IN / YO” of the photograph.

Just as the screen behind me shows the dramatic difference between tiger and dragon, the photo also shows the contrast between light and dark. This in itself is also a major lesson of ninjutsu.

The screen behind me was painted by Kano Tanyu in the edo period (1602-1674) The piece is called Dragon and Waves; Tiger among the Bamboo.

I hope that you all enjoyed today’s lesson.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – The Eye of the Warrior

Soke Christa Jacobson

Anshu Christa Jacobson - Eyes of the Warrior

Bushi no Me – “Eyes of the Samurai”
(sight and insight)

A warrior does not see things in an ordinary way. A warrior has trained their mind and spirit to process the impulses from a highly refined manner. A warrior does not focus on one thing, but sees one thing.

To the warrior, the ideas of “eye sight” and “sight” are different, there are many different methods of sight and insight with a warrior.

NIKUGEN (Naked Eye)
TENGEN (Neutral Eye)
EGEN (Interpretive Eye)
SHINGEN / HOGEN (Compassionate Eye)

The training for all methods of warrior sight and insight for the samurai is called “Bushi no men Rensho” The complete understanding of these concepts will be found in Chapter Three of Budo Ryu Kai; School of War. This book details all of the fundamentals of the Budo Ryu Kai as well as the fundamentals and basics of all Budo.

This book is a must have for any practitioner of the Japanese martal arts and is to be released later this year!

I hope that you all enjoy the lesson!
