The Scrolls Of Heaven, Earth and Man.

BUJINKAN NINPO FUNDAMENTALS: Sensing future changes... the recent BUJINKAN NINPO SOKE consolidated their Teachings. Becoming Heirs to not one,.. but 9 Martial Ways or Traditions impelled such an option. As peace reigns... Martialness... wanes. Student numbers and quality changes, Modern Laws,.. Societal changes too ALL require adaptation. So too any LIVING ART... Martial or otherwise. Shiro herein looks at several of the chosen concepts in a small series of posts. This is... THE SCROLLS OF HEAVEN, EARTH and MAN.

To begin: I am not a current Instructor;..

(… though graded/licensed to be…1996-Asst. Instr. Shidoshi-ho… currently Shidoshi…):

…I am a long-time Student of the Martial Arts (…incl. NINPO…1984-), a Researcher and Writer.

 

Any and All Concepts discussed herein are from that Viewpoint. Mine.

My simple understanding and so forth.

 

These Concepts (… AND how they relate to YOU…) are best explained by YOUR Sensei… or Soke preferably. These are the ones who can JUDGE the presentation and advice etc based on your current needs. The overview herein is taken from my Journals, experience and current mood AND is presented as such.

Just an Overview.

Just an Experience.

Am aware that there are several Versions/Editions of these Concepts and will endeavor to cover the Majority.

 

Herein the BUJINKAN NINPO TAIJUTSU Terms and Concepts.

Seven in all. List Below.

 

EACH will then (…soonish…) be further examined in a separate dedicated post.

Shiro’s take on the;..

BUJINKAN NINPO

FUNDAMENTALS.

 

AN INTRODUCTION.

… to the MIND… of Shiro… on the Concepts of NINPO.

A LIL… BACK-CHAT…

 

Within the ARTS OF WAR and the combat oriented MARTIAL WAYS and TRADITIONS of Japan; there are Concepts, Philosophies and Discourses, Scrolls, Denshō and so on. These in many ways… give meaning to and help to define that ART and/or Way.

An Idea or Concept, a Guide,.. oft too… an overview.

Usually Two kinds,.. sometimes three. Physical-Mental-Divine.

 

These in turn,.. each represent an APPROACH or METHOD of doing… to apply to situations of interest.

 

These also tend to be carried through and beyond a singular generation of practitioners and indeed are oft generated by important figures of that particular Tradition and bestowed akin to a LEGACY,.. in that, they were obviously considered somewhat integral and necessary in formulation of understanding of said Tradition… at that time and place and then on.

THE SCROLLS OF

HEAVEN, EARTH and MAN.

This NINPO Training Device… is rather unique (click).

The SOKE who enabled and devised this Scroll Set were the Lineage Holders of a large variety of MARTIAL WAYS and TRADITIONS.

 

 

This in itself became problematical as Teaching a Combat oriented ART and Form oft leads… all over the place. Sometimes it seems… to places the Sensei addressed elsewhere, else-time and place and so on.

Thus… consolidation,.. became the choice option.

And thus… these herein Scrolls.

TEN CHI JIN…HEAVEN, EARTH, MAN.

 

The Scrolls utilise the Fundamental Movements and Techniques of EACH SCHOOL or RYU of the 9 Traditions (click) as Concepts.

These Technique Concepts are open ended… infinite variety, multi-level IDEAS.

Expressions not Endings.

Oft revisited by those who understand and appreciate… the Basics… so-called.

 

Presented in an NINPO ELEMENT Type Naming Process/Grouping.

Practicing the Scroll Tech.,..

…illustrate to the Student aware and looking;

…the ways to move, to evade into safety zones, how moves and turns also generate power, leverage, positional and physical advantages and so on.

 

Other Tech.,.. highlight such as Strategic and/or useful Body Weaponry movements/counters.

There are even Tech.,.. using tech/basic Chemistry as Defense or Strategy. A wide range of wide-ranging Techniques.

Useful indeed. Lots of contrast.

Free Sparring in Japan during the early 1990’s also meant dealing with… a lot of contrasts.

A Training Tip from Shiro here,.. is to get around… the Class where you be.

Adapt to the contrasts.

Mix up your Class opponents/partners whenever you can.

 

Training with opponents who are MUCH TALLER/HEAVIER is a MUST.

In the REAL… you have no say in the choice.

At that time… Shiro’s choices…

were such as ANTHONY NETZLER, ED LOMAX, ROBERT BAUMGARTEN and DARREN HORVARTH.

Tough choice indeed.

 

I had nick-names for them all.

They know this not…btw.

 

DARREN H. was the GREEK GOD,.. a STATUE… (click) Btw,.. he is not Greek but… Physique and approach… ARE… CLASSICAL.

ROBERT B. was the DOLPHIN… (click) Btw,.. he is not a Dolphin but… sleek, quick… and Smashed… like a TIDAL WAVE.

 

ED LOMAX,.. (click)my first intro to an INSTRUCTOR of the BUJINKAN… we trained and travelled together for a time… housed together too… (Japan and Australia…), we were the first south aussies to live and train with SOKE + CO in 1990 etc..: …and… to me;

… he was the SPIDER/SERPENT SENSEI… he’s not icky at all… but ties me in knots… … as wise as a Serpent… web weaving away my counters… like the Constellation OPHIUCUS…does for… Sagittarius.?.!. my Zodiac… (click);.. anyway… and:

 

The MACHINE = ANTHONY N.

… Cos… he is.

photocredit/thanks:pinterest

photocredit/thanks:pinterest

 

(… Next time YOU Train with him… ask him of his first encounter with the 1990 Entertainment Media of Japan… AND what he had to do… to his Classmates… Shiro included… to please them… the Media that is.

This Tale involved a quite lengthy involved Combat Scenario… which WE ALL HAD TO REPEAT…OFTEN… TILL THE CAMERA PEEPS FINALLY SAID OK, CUT… MANY TIMES.!.

…basically he beat us all good… MANY times that day… IN THE SAME WAY.

 

Was glad THEY SUPPLIED THE FOOD + DRINK FOR FUEL THANKFULLY (click)… slept well that night too.

 

A. NETZLER.

A Machine… in action therein;)

(…For those with an interest… the HERO ANTHONY’s KICKER NINJA OPPO at 3:21-7… be i, Shiro… Great day and memories. thanks A.N. + co.,.. too…)

 

Twas great… to have such great Classmates.

Though… oft sore at times… too.

 

Another TRAINING TIP methinks here;

So help… and be helped by Class-mates.

Through times… good and… sore… too.

Memories. These be sweet.

 

Twas there they ALL taught me the increasing value of …

…HEAVEN, EARTH AND,.. MAN-kind.

 

NINPO IKKAN… TO Them all… and you… as well.

Take care.

WHAT IS THE SOUND OF MUSIC.?.Connecting the dots tends to produce those aha moments. As an independent researcher i, (shiro), also tend to mass produce raw intel (refer INTEL REPORTS; elsewhere on this site) and blog those several+ bits n pieces that have links to the subject at hand. Well…in theory anyway! So… WHAT IS THE SOUND OF MUSIC.?. Shiro sounds out the Operatic Castrati... searches for the SOLFEGGIO Frequencies... Listens to SCIENCE ON EARS, TESLA on NATURAL VIBRATIONS...all to find... the real beat of the sound. Feel free to... lend an ear indeed.
