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.

(1)               The majority of teachers cannot do what they claim they can do, and or, they cannot do what they teach.
(2)               The majority of teachers spend more time on the perception of their dojo’s image, rather than the development of their student’s skills.
(3)               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).

REAL / Authentic / Classical / Traditional - Ninjutsu Training


Someone just sent me something that is absolutely ridiculous and to be blunt, fucking pathetic. There are so many people that trash me, belittle me and my school, and call me fake and fraud, yet make sure they watch everything that I do, then turn around and profit off of what I teach…

Example:
10+ years ago, I was writing about ninja survival skills (seizonjutsu) and teaching how to make fire, find water, etc... No one in the ninjutsu community was even discussing these skills at all. Not openly online and not making videos on YouTube about this subject. Now the very same people that trash me, call me fake and fraud are writing books on the very EXACT SAME “ninja survival skills” that I teach – then turn around and say how bad my martial arts / ninjutsu is. How the hell are they going to trash me, then turn around take my online lessons and make money off of my teachings?

Another Example:
For years, I've been talking about esoteric magick and have been teaching “ninja magick”. For Years! The very same people who trash me, belittle me, mock me for being a witch, etc… are now talking about the very EXACT SAME “ninja magick” that I’ve been teaching for years!

These people are literally stealing from me, to put money in their pockets!

As a woman who teaches martial arts, I already don’t get a fair shake, because the majority of martial arts students are men, and they do not want to learn how to "fight" from a woman.

As a transgender woman who teaches martial arts, I do not get a fair shake, because there are so many hateful, closed minded, prejudice bigots that do not want to be around transgender people because it makes them feel “uncomfortable”.

As a ninjutsu teacher, I do not get a fair share, because in the “World of Martial Arts” ninjutsu is seen as a joke. It is seen as people who dress in black and larp around like they’re playing a live action role play of D&D or something…

So as a woman, a transgender woman, who teaches ninjutsu it’s already tough enough in this business. However… With all of the shit thrown at me, I have NEVER stopped.  Because I know that I am right and I’ve always believed that the truth will always prevail.  Now, I’m starting the rethink that a little.  Maybe the majority of people don’t want real training. Maybe the majority don’t want the truth…

The ninjutsu community is either full of people who DO NOT train and have an active library card and huge book collection. Or, people who are part of the popular chains of ninpo schools that are bullshit.  They DO NOT spar. They DO NOT have physical requirements. They DO NOT push their students at all. They give out high rank very easy. For those of you who do not know, easy rank = money in the martial arts.

Then there is me… I am the one that has literally SHUT DOWN Budo Ryu Ninjutsu schools and closed the doors because the teachers of these schools (who were my own students at the time),  DO NOT live up to my standard of excellence that I demand! Some think that is crazy, because it alters “growth of a business”. But I don’t give a shit. Anyone who is in the Budo Ryu Kai and does not want to do what we do, they will be dismissed.  It is that simple!

They (the ones that are no longer with the Budo Ryu Kai) want to operate a dojo like all of these money making bullshido mcdojo’s! I WILL NOT HAVE IT! Here we do it right! You have to train the Mind-Body-Spirit! Here you have to learn tradition and be able to protect yourself and survive! I will not bend on these rules! If you refuse to do what is required, then you need to leave the organization.

So not only do I get people all over the internet that trash the hell out of me, just because me being me does not fit. But I also get people who can’t take the training here at the Budo Ryu Kai and leave and trash the hell out of me. When I am doing everything, exactly how it is written in the ancient text!

90% of all of “Martial Arts” is bullshit.
90% of the “Ninjutsu Community” is bullshit.
Know that! 9 out of 10 things you read online is bullshit…

I will NOT speak for any other organization. But if you are serious about getting in shape, training hard and learning the ancient ways of the warrior. If you are truly interested in studying authentic ninjutsu and classical samurai bujutsu; check out our website: www.BudoRyuNinjutsu.com. There you will find what you are looking for.

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…..

Top 5 Ninja Principals of Stealth / Silent Walking | Ninjutsu Martial Arts Training Techniques




In this video, I teach a step by step tutorial of the top ninja principals of stealth walking, a.k,a Shinobi Aruki. Many times people see ninjutsu training as this very specific thing, when in reality, all ninjutsu training if flexible and fluid.  The Top 5 Ninja Principals of Stealth Walking Are:

(1) Understand Bodyweight Transfer During Motion.
(2) Control Your Breathing.
(3) Stay Relaxed and Flexible.
(4) Train in Various Elements To Enhance Body Control.
(5) Learn To Adapt To Each Situation & Element.

In the classic ninjutsu text called the Bansenshukai, Fujibayashi Yasutake says:

Ignorant ninja are not aware of this principal but directly stick to ancient ways and do not even know the simplest of facts…”

“Its folly to see something as unchangeable and stick to an old method without realizing that things keep changing and are in flux.”

- Fujibayashi Yasutake | Bansenshukai; 1676

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!
