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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Art of Tenjin-ryu Jujutsu: True Traditional Budo Training | Martial Arts Fighting Techniques

In this video, I share a brief demonstration on The Art of Tenjin-ryu Jujutsu. A True Art of Traditional Budo Training.

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

Tenjin Ryū Jujutsu (天神流柔術), literally meaning “Gentle Art of the Heavenly Divine” has it’s historical roots, classical kata and training methods dating back centuries to Japans warring past of the Sengoku period (戦国時代) and can be classified as a traditional school of jujutsu.  It was founded by Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson by combining all of her koryū bujutsu (古流; classical Japanese warrior arts) and gendai budō (現代武道; modern martial arts) training that she experienced during her time as an apprentice.
.
Just as in the Koka-ryu school of Kempo, Soke Anshu wanted to share with her students all of the principals and strategies that was taught to her from her masters and share that with them.  She also wanted a specific method of jujutsu for the Budo Ryu Kai that blends, flows and connects the other six traditions of the school together and can adapt in any situation.  The Tenjin-ryu school of jujutsu is the glue that connects the other traditions together within the Budo Ryu Kai.

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”.

How To Train In Traditional Martial Arts For Modern Self-Defense | Ninjutsu, Bujutsu, Kobujutsu

 

In this video I teach how to train in traditional martial arts and how to make it work for the modern world of self-defense.  There are so many so called “Ninjutsu” or “Bujutsu” schools of classical martial arts that say (claim) that they are teaching methods of martial arts that fit in the modern day, when the facts are, they are not.  They are lying to make money, and they know it.

In the video you will hear me talk about “henka”. Yes many classical dojo / koryu schools of budo/ninpo do henka.  The difference is that their henka is still set within the 15th century.  They are not applying the principals, strategies and philosophies of the kata (that they claim to be a master of) in the modern world of self defense.  Instead of mastering the arts that they claim to be dedicated too, they study “koryu” and then do modern martial arts such as Krav Maga or Systema for the “Self-Defense”.  To all of “1st degree masters” that do this: You should be embarrassed of yourself and you should apologize to the warrior arts that you claim to be so dedicated to.

The facts are, there is no martial art that is better than another.  They were all made for different reasons at different times in history.  The best thing to do is fine a martial art that like you (regardless of what it is), find a master that will teach you, and dedicate yourself to the mastery of that art.

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).

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.

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).

The Sad Truth in the World of Martial Arts Business & Self-Defense Industry

In this video, I discuss the sad truth in the world of the martial arts. Do not get me wrong, I love the martial arts and the ninjutsu community.  But that does not mean I love everything that’s in it.  There are things that are absolutely terrible in the world of martial arts and self defense business; and in this video, I detail 3 things that are the sad truth in the industry.

  • The majority of teachers cannot do what they claim they can do, and or, they cannot do what they teach.
  • The majority of teachers spend more time on the perception of their dojo’s image, rather than the development of their student’s skills.
  • The majority of teachers give out easy rank, to make more money. In doing this, it hinders the student’s development because the importance is not on the student; it is on the profit margin on the dojo.

I refuse to participate in the above 3 points.  The art, the transmission of the art and the relationships with the students and their development is what is important.

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.

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).
