Anshu Christa Jacobson – Darkness

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.

Take Care, Be Safe and Good Luck in your Journey of Budo

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Sage

Anshu Christa Jacobson

“The career of a sage is of two kinds — She is either honored by all in the world, like a flower waving its head, Or else she disappears into the silent forest.” – Lao Tzu

This koan can be understood many ways, and in fact, we all as martial artist can apply these teachings from Lao Tzu. I hope that this helps with your training today.

I hope that you can all understand today’s lesson, take care and be safe –
