As both i, Shiro and The Kunoichi Kawasaki sat there Spinning Wheels
so slumped. Spitting those Chips and Others such Flaming
Metaphors as well. Well as
My Mind… and Body, was… All over the Places and Times. At Times…
well mostly. With lil’
of Light. Breath also. Also
So and thus, this and that leads
Back. i, Shiro sat.
So sat, set was my devilish grin. Like Mind. Shattered. As several
Teeth. Moved so and within. That. There. Mouth
of Mine. As i sat in. That Gutter still there. Still. Eyes peeled, steeled. Still
and so an
idiotic, pained misshapen, unbalanced, edge of sanity,
o so clear and deeply in red smeared grin. Did grow. Of
at least. Am Alive. There.
I smiled. A lil’ then. Sorta’.
My Last Image. That Day. The Kunoichi Kawasaki.
Lying there. Like me. Well… sitting, slumping. Then.
Then… Then Breathe stopped. Felt it leave…
as did My Vision. Then…
Slept like a deadened Log. Woodenly. For a lil’ while. Long. Still.
Many Others known and unknown took such Nursing, Care into their Hands
from their Hearts. For this. Of mine. Thus using with Mind collectively
to achieve. The Healing within. Within this Body
of i, Shiro.
Now. There within.
For me. Mine. Though
The Kunoichi Kawasaki. Not treated so. Well. Well as
not moving. Much in Body
at All. Certainly not free. Not there. 3
Places Neck cracked, much and so more. More not worked. Moreover
yet and still. Still enough so yet
NOT broken, so Times and Places can. Death halt then. Heal that therein.
Life that then and so remains. For and then. A
while some more. It seems. More and more in deed. Places
and Times behind. Healing Times. So went. I… Flew.?.
In Mind. Mine.
Did so Fly. Whilst i, Shiro so Slept. In that.
Leaving that and this. This Body behind as well. Well as Mind Freed,
i so went. Aways. Aways from those unknown Carers. Aways,
yet Home bound
some Ways as well. Well as so seems. Seems scenes seen
there, divinely hellish then seemingly balances. Like a Dream. Fill
Fulled with a Life. A Death. All it’s Own. Therein. There. Mind. Mine. Then.
Till enough was said for and to Mind. Mine. To comprehend. Then. Then told
after intense discussions-aways to go. Aways.?.
No, not so. I was… thus and so, sent… exiled. Aways from there and that
Place. A Place
where Deathly Life so
Reigns. Places, Times. Stand stilled, no Real Rain either. With Wings
that propel at every thought. Of Mind. Mine. Within…
Yes… there were Wings. There. On. In a
Places, Times of No
Held. Still. Deathly and Still.
in the Real. Still had Life to go Ways. It seems indeed. Let Me stay
in this, that
Death. Places and Times. Would NOT be thus, in deed.
Not so. So then and thus so back and to,
Earthly Life from 12 to 7 Chakras was Deathly
and deftly given, dealt,
torn from i, Shiro, such and with All Love from that and those Hands
and House of Death. Wings removed
asunder. Off. Powered Down, Cleansed, Removed, Banished
from The Lands of that There After. Exiled was i. I… i,..
the Shiro. Had no say. About that. At All. Sent
back to Play too. To and with Life.
With Words. Of Legends, Dreams.
Angels, Demons. To turn. In
For You. There.
Herein. So Writ.
Then Mine. Mind
then. Though and with no need. No need to so breathe. Therein. That
Places and Times of a o so heavenly divine,
so worrying devilish. Death. Began, Begins. To then. End.?. Then.
Anew begins. Life.
With a such and so Thought in Mind. Mind so thought too. To join in. To so
Breathe. Now. Now, to Embrace Life thus back given. Then. Join
in. Just Breathe. Just so. Then and so. More. Again. Breathe. Just and so.
Waking up. Times and Places unknown. A White Nightmare in deed. A
Eyes everywhere. That
i could see. Then. That.
The Kunoichi. No. No
where to be so seen. Now. In
this White Room. I lay.
Still and now surrounded, enveloped. White and bright Light. All

Days into weeks then so roll on though thru’,

i, Shiro that is.
With Any Thoughts, Hints, Tips and Dreams.
If A Particular Legendary Theme or Our World Legends. Is A Desire.
To Be So Writ. Herein.
Defining Ninpo and All the Concepts within is problematical.
Even the Fundamentals.
The Essence is Survival.
This is taught in a fluid Combat manner…
to suit any and all situations.
Defining that above… problematical.
Herein i, Shiro’s attempt at classifying that which the Japanese Masters and Our World Legends state and say on the Historical Practices of the Arts of Self-Defence… Shinobi Style;
♦TAIJUTSU : Unarmed Combat Systems.

The Systems above are taught and tempered with a creed/motto type approach to both Dojo and Life thereafter. These Rules and/or Guidelines can vary somewhat from RYU/School and Sensei/Soke involved.
A recent-ish Ninpo Soke version is here.
Though details may differ the overall Concept and Approach involves realistically knowing oneself and capabilities. This is then also applied to such as Universal, World, Natural or Local Knowledge.
Balance, Harmony and Flow are oft emphasised.
Basic Rights, Empathy and Respect is highlighted to Others and Society as a whole. Love for Self, Kin and Human-Kind.
Survival and Self-Defence linked naturally.
Our World Legends.
Ninja and Kunoichi.
Ninpo Ikkan All.
As there are several Versions/Editions of these Concepts,..
will endeavor to cover the Majority.
Shiro’s take on the;..
… to the MIND… of Shiro… on the Concepts of NINPO.
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.
These i term… THE FUNDAMENTALs (click).
Within The Arts of Bujinkan Ninpo.
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.
(… 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 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.
Coming next in this Series… soonish;..(click)
