MASAAKI HATSUMIS SCHOOL FOR BUJINKAN NINPO TAIJUTSU EASTERN CULTURE FOR BODY AND MIND

COPYRIGHT TEN CHI JIM RYAKU NO MAKl BUJINKAN HUMBO DOJO NODA, NODA-CH1 JAPAN 278 EDITED TO ENGLISH STAN SKRABUT, SHIDOSHI-HO MARIETTE VAN DER VLIET, SH1DOSHI BERNADETTE VAN DER VLIET BUJINKAN NINPO TAIJUTSU

FO RW O RD What you sou now ir, not a now book about Ninjutsu. it is actually the translation from tho TEN CHi JIN riVAKU NO MAKl, tho book ol Hoavon, Earth and Man. This forms tho basis of the 3 U JIN K A N N IN PO T A IJU T S U system, bettor known as Ninjutsu. W o compiled a variety of articles and combined it with the T E N CHI JIN R Y A K U NO MAKl. W o didn't use our own imagination to create something new, because we thought why writo down techniques/ movements which havo already been written down (or such a long time? That would bo quite arrogant. Ninjutsu as an an and philosophy is almost one thousand years old and until a short while ago. only known to a few. Now this knowledge is available for everyone. Thanks to Dr. Masaaki Haisurni, the Soka or Grandmaster of S ancient schools, the door has been 'opened* for thoso outsido of Japan. W hat we can learn from Dr. Hatsumi and his teachings is the use of natural movement. In order to be able to do that, we must practice the basics from the Bujinkan system; these basics can be found written In the books of Heaven, Earth and Wan. The best way to learn ninjutsu is to read Hatsumi So n se fs books, watch his videos, and train with him and his senior instructors both in and out of Jap an . This will help you understand what nir.jutsu roaily is, as practiced in Jap an for almost a miiiennium. Although this manual is an invaluable addition to anyones ninjutsu library because of the material it contains, it Is very Important to realize that you can't leam ninjutsu just by reading this manual. You also need to study with a real instructor, someone who has been properly trained In this Jap an ese art and is capable of conveying tho fooling and spirit of the art.An instructor can also clarify or show you the techniques that are difficult to visualize In this manual. This manual is not a total composition of all there is to know about ninjutsu, in fact, it is only a microscopic part. Although, it presents basics necessary to build upon, it does not teach or show adaptability; this is something that can be oniy shown by a reai instructor. Use this manual as a tool towards better understanding, but please due not treat it as-a '8ible* or a linal word, it isn't. It's just the beginning to future understanding. As a bonus, we added somo articles from tho Shihans and fragments of Senseis books, which we thought wore important to Increased understanding about the an and its philosophy. W e liko to thank Svenoric Bogsater, 9th dan, Shinan, for ail his help ana' support in describing the techniques and compiling the data found in this manual. W e hope you enjoy it, as much as, we enjoyed putting it together. Tho nine ryu the B U JIN K A N System is built on are: T O G A K U R t R Y U N tN JU T S U G Y O K K O R Y U K G SH 1 JU T S U .

TAIJUTSU NO ICAMAE
from Nir.juisu, History and Tradition by Dr, M acjak i Hntsumi The body posluros of taijutsu ore more !han mero utilitarian stances or formal ways of positioning the trunk and limbs. Tho K A M A E of ninjutsu can best be described as the physical embodiment of the mental outlook. In any living or fighting situation, the body and the consciousness it houses are constantly being subjected to tho over-progressing development of a series of prosent instants, in order ;o bo tho most olfoctivo in any of thoso given situations, tho mind and body should bo totally in tuna with each other lo provent inappropriate actions or reactions. In actuality, mind* and "body* are mere arbitrary terms that we apply to made-up divisions of one single entity.

Hatsumi Se n sei demonstrates his Taijutsu in Burbank, California, 1988

W hen properly appliod, tho K A M A E reflects the ninja's heart. This means that our physical nature conforms naturally to our intentions, and there is no division between our interior and exterior aspects. This state of integrated mind and body action is totally naturai, and can be observed readily in the movements of animals as they interact with their environment Only human beings seem to develop the need to be trained in natural body motion. Tho K A M A E themselves are more guides or suggestions for the most effective use of tho body weapon. A s such, thoy aro physical attitudes, and are by no means to bo adhered to in precise imitation. Each Individual body, with its unique configuration of muscles and bone alignments wiil naturally determine its own pragmatic and comfortable variations of the basis fighting postures. A s the student progresses, the K A M A E become less and loss significant as specific poses, as they are gradually assimilated into the character of the individual. Once these fundamentals are internalized, the most advanced fighting posture becomes a "no fighting posture".

DAKEN TAIJUTSU
(ro:ii Ninjutsu, History and Tradition by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi Tho ninja's d akentaljutsu striking tochniquos combine the methods of two distinct disciplines that a; said to have originally developed In China Koppojutsu (bene smashing) uses the donchod fists, bottoms of the foeU knees, and elbows, to attack and break up tho bone structure of the adversary. Ko sh lju lsu (organ and muscle tearing) uses tips of extended fingers and toes against the softer internal targets of tho adversary.

Ishizuka Shihan demonstrates tho perfect S H IK A N K EN , note the body posture and position of legs

INASHI GATA
from Ninjuisu, History and Tradition by Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi A series ol four progressive developmental steps can be followed when fiist pursuing the skills of effective striking, whether with the upper or lower extremities. 1. Learn and internalize tho proper feeling when applying each of the body's w eapons. Isolate the hand or foot that is doing the striking and concentrate on the delivery of strike alone. W eapon accuracy is the key to the first s lo p . 2 . Once proper command of the weapon itself is developed, work on the additional elements of utilizing all tho possible footwork variations and body angles that could propel the weapon into its target. Proper distancing is the key to this second step, as the entire body comes into piay. 3. Uso an appropriate striking target for actual application of the strike. The purpose.of a strike is to stun or knock down an assailant, and tho only way to doveiop a constantly reliable strike is to work at actually striking a target over and over again repetitively. The key skill (or development In this third stage is tho ability to regulate and direct the Impact of the weapon against the target. 4. O nce sufficient technical skill In using 'ho weapon has boon developed, the fourtn step is to utilize the energy and movement of the entiro body wn^n app.ying the sxike. F ar more effective than merely ilexing tho muscles and moving tho bones of the striking limb alone, the ninjas taijutsu engages the motion of the entire body to generate the power of tho strike. 8y combining the natural release of the breath with the expansive movem ent of the body from a base of gravity, power is a product of the entire body in relaxed yot vibrant motion. Tho key to the effectiveness of the fourth step is the creation of thrust as a result of natural rosiiient motion rather than as a result of tension.

GODAI
By Sveneric Bogsator, 9ih Dan. GODAI monns [ho big (ivo* and thoso ars Earth, Water, Firo, Wind and Void. GOOA1 Is put together Into five levels or energies (G O R IN NO TO).

Earth (CHI) is the* basic level, basic energy and therefore, tho iirst (one counts from bottom to top).

W ater (SU I or M!2U) is found as groundwater upon tho earth, as la^es, seas and rivers. W ater evaporates, risos, and bccom as clouds In tho sky. That is why the water level Is tha second.

Firo (KA or HI) is tho warmth (from the sun) and the third energy level.

Wind (FU or K A 2 E) moves always influenced by warmth; with those movements, ihe wind carries a lot. Wind is the fourth level.

Void (KU) crowns" tha total as the fifth and highost level. Without the Vofd, the other four can't exist. Void stands in the G O R IN NO TO lor "the uniting potential power of all things. Without begin and without end." Musasht writes in his book, 'B y Void 1 mean that which has no beginning and no end. Attaining this principle moans not attaining the principle. The W ay of strategy is the W ay of nature. W hen you appreciate tho powor of nature, knowing the rhythm of any situation, you will bo able to hit the enemy naturally and strike naiuraily. Ail this, is the Way of the Void. I intend to show how to follow tho true W ay according to nature.* Dont misunderstand or exchange tho element Void with 'nothing. On Ihe contrary! Void is tha embryo in the reality of everything and tho body in ail the energies. This is the place where everything exists as if it does not exist. Void contains everything and that is why Void is the ultimate reality. To bo in harmony with the 5 elements demands mental and physical training It is important to realize from the beginning that this can : bo taught in an academic manner. W e must experience the presence of the elements in and through oursoif, and how we, by practising, manifest each one of the energy levels. W hen we succeed to unite with the 4 first levels and succeed to assimulate the energy from those levels, it will be the Void that finally makes it possible to use tine energy and act intuitively.

J A P A N : T H E L A N D O F T H E T R E E (S A N S H I N N O K A T A ) S P IR IT F O R M O F T H R E E H E A R T S
By Dr. Masaakj Hatsumi From: BuJIn; Volume 1 Number 8 A monk once said, Hundreds and thousands of leaves grow from one root*. Simply speaking, he w as saying that even a giant tree with small branches and thousands of leaves came (rom one seed. Without the seed no tree will grow. The giant tree depends for if s growth on Its root system. I dedded to have a chat with a giant tree. The following is the conversation between myself and the tree. # HeUo, Big Tree, how many birthdays havo you celebrated?' 1 have no Idea. There are so many annual rings in my body ! get dizzy counting themir Is that right! Do you remember when you were very small?" "Yes, I remember eating dellcous Nitron, Phosphoric Add and Potassium, all the good stuff that helped ma grow this big.' *WeO, Great Tree, for martial arts, we have a teaching of the spirit of three hearts (Sanshin No Kata). This teaching is based on the saying that the spirit of three years old is with a man until he is a hundred years oW. W e recognize the importance of early childhood and treasure these important years, whan one la unaware of ego. independence and contiousness. ' v , This Sansh in No Kata (form of spirit of three hearts) is described In a section of secret teachings of the Gyokko Ryu. which teaches beginners that we have to train ourselves with the spirit of a three year old, not forgetting the spirit even though they think they accomplish these techniques. *W ow ,w hatls it, asks the big tree?"
. ' Wi .

W ei, I can demonstrate the Kata for you. This Kata represents the most important feeling as a martial artist It is a very simple movement, something we do intrinsically and naturally. The basic of Sansh in No K a ta is artistic but also very uncomplicated. Your body movement while doing this is quite dUtaentfrom the movements of KlhonH appo.1 There are a total of 10 Katas: 5 Katas for the right side of the body and another 5 for the left These 10 Kataa are called the Shoshin no Kata (Kata of First Body) in Densho (Book of Teaching). Tho 5 Katas ara classified as the 5 elements of Nature, that is Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Sky. By training in these Katas. a student begins to recognize the 5 elements and the truth of Nature." ; (After I have completed my demonstration my conversation with the tree resumes.) You move very naturally,- the tree whispers.* '

"That's right, I answer. The good point of this Kata is to move naturally and not to mako Kaia (forms) Intentionally. Every m ovem ents very simple and flows from one lorm to another."

T H E "K O K O R O " O F K IH O N H A P P O
by Tetsuji Ishizuka (10th dan) from Tetsazan. When thinking about KJhon Happo 1 feel I must start from [he time, over 23 years ago when I was allowed to become a student At the time I was a 17-year-old hlgh-school student, with a strong interest in Judo, Kendo, Karate. Aikido, and Shorinji Kempo. I was training in each of them. One day I dislocatod my shoulder in Judo, and went to Soke's setkotsu dinic for treatment. That's how It al( started. The training hail at that time was a small room with a plank floor. Whether hot or cold, we would ail train together there as friends. There were days when someone would stamp through a plank In the floor and we would at! stop to repair it before continuing. From the senior students, I learned Ichimonji-no-kamae, Hicho-no-kamae, Jumonji-no-kamae, and strange strikes, kicks, and blocks that I had never seen before, and which i did not really understand. Alter some months i learned that these new techniques were Kihon Happo. How I wanted to learn some techniques! But Soke and the senior students applied blocks to me and threw me through the air. They made my body learn ukemi naturally, so my ukomi gradually became better - totally different from those in Judo or Aikido, So i could take my falls without pain whether on planks, concrete, or gravel. Soke talked to us about Budo both during and after the training. Time and time again he told us 'Ninjutsu is Taijutsu. Taijutsu begins with Kihon Happo and ends with Kihon Happo. if you get stuck for techniques go back and redo Kihon Happor The most essential thing required of a martial artist is to have a Kokoro that Is like the warm, beautiful heart of a flower In peace and harmony, or alternatively the warm, beautiful heart of a flower with the upright, flexible character of a bamboo. I w as young and often thought, a Oh not again*, but as though reading my mind Soke would say, "Takamatsu Sensei used to tell me ail of these things in the same way, and I would think, 'Uh-oh, here he goes again,' but later the (act that those words am really important pierced its way deep into my chest.* Hearing these words, i felt them pierce my chest deeply, too. A s iim e passed, I sweated through the training, always cradled by Soke's warm heart, and got to leach those below me the basic Kihon Happo, like Te-hodoki, in just the same way as i had bean taught in my time. When considering how each of the techniques had been passed down In this way for over 900 years. I could but wonder at the mystery of the living martial arts. . 1 . ' Eventuafly I came to have a dojo of my own, and students of my own, and realized more and more how heavy a responsibility I held for my own basics. As you are all aware, many students came from abroad to train In the martial arts. But somehow, the techniques lacked bitei and I realized this must be because they had not truly mastered the basics. I reaJiy sensed a need for everyone lo learn from the Shlhan how each individual movement of the Kihon Happo gets linked into techniques, and then Into taijutsu, to build a stable form of movement with roots firmly Implanted In the earth, combined with sharp,. biting branches. Soke is a genius - as a painter, as an actor, and of course as a martial artist His movements do not stop at where onlookers see them to stop. The techniques now on and on boundlessly, and so whenever you train yourself, copying the movements of this great flowing river, please watch Soke's toes, fingertips, torso - in fact watch his whole body. He uses all of the Kihon Happo i have mentioned, if you Just try and copy the flow of techniques without seeing this, your techniques will have no bite. When a baby first starts to wafk, he often fails over probably because of (he unbalance between his head's weight and the muscies of his body. The martial arts are the same. Ju st as a parent stretches out a helping hand to a baby, senior students stretch out to help their juniors, and both help and love oach other. Love produces new things, raises new life. It is said that taijutsu gives birth to m irades. And the first step of taijutsu is Kihon Happo. As It was transmitted from Takamatsu Sensei to Hatsumi Sense!, and from Hatsumi Sense! to the Shidoshl throughout the world, we have a heavy reponsibifity to bring about work) peace and help people lo lead enjoyable lives. This responsibility may be heavy, but I feel it is also somehow enjoyable in itseli, how about you?

3y Nagatc Toshiro. 10 Ja n From T ET S U Z A N , Autumn, 1930 Thc-ro aro somo people who uso Budo ac the basic of moir livelihood. Thore are ovon somo who claim to bo doing it for iho sake of Bujinkan. for the sake of Togakure-ryu' whereas, they more!/ using it for their own personal sake, using it for their own professions. Theso are not true martial artisis. they era mania! art ousinessmcn. (Soke is a martial artist, an aulhor, a painter, a doctor, and ihe top level al teach of them. For the pasl year he has also been an aclor). As ior myself, I have a job just like anyone else, which provides my livelihood, and 1 see my Budo as existing on top of that base. I'm noi saying that Budo business is a totally evil thing. Things vary trom country to country, for people who car. survive just on Budo. that's fine. Howover, 1 do sometimes think (as a parent might), seeing as they have not got the necessary experience, whai on earth are they leaching it cant be all oasy sailing lor these inexperienced ones, either. Looking at the current situation, there are a handlul ol people who can really do Taijutsu and understand Budo. AH the rest need a lot more time and training. There are even somo deluded children who lake a few years of (in-)oxperience. some sort of fee! lor sports, mix them up together and try lo prove what a 'genuine expert' they are... To bo quit honest, unioss someone reaiiy understands whai Soke is saying, they have absolutely no right lo use nam es Bujinkan* or Togakure-ryu\ If ihoy get a reputation lor being an abuser, weli thats more than understandable. Soke just watches them silently. II someone does not understand your leaching, what's the point of wasting energy on them ? That's what 1000 years of history have taught. There aro oven some total idiots who try comparing Soke wilh their own feeble experience, and use their own pctry powers of juagmont to criticize him. Maybo it's for the sake of making money, the advertisements are big- but the real contents are just a sham. W hat on Earth can such people be thinking of? I suppose must be just themselves... Sul ovon then Soke says nothing. Budo is not as trivial as that. It is not tho kind of thing where you can throw your responsibility to the winds, teach anything you like however you like, and thus satisfy your egc. It is backed up by a long history of battling for peace, it is a splendid form ol art. it is human culture ol a high dimension. And for those who encounter this mariial art but then drift away from ihe core without even roaliiing it, and head ofl in the wrong direction, they are rather to be pitied. Soke nover forces his students to do anything. Instead ho always says If you just do Budo for your own sake you'll gat worse". Do no; think of yourself, do it for tne sake of your country* is what ho preaches wherever fie travels throughout tho world. He also says this to thoso who come lo train in Jap an , just before he sees them return home. At first they seem to understand the gist of what Soke says, and their hearts burn with Iho feeling ol their duty to teach true Budo. 8ut afier awhile, what with the pressure of work, money, etc., they change hoart and simply forget. Of course. I'm not saying lhal absolutely everybody is like that. As time passes everything changes. However, if one's feelings change, that is not sirnpiy a result of time passing. Those who are only thinking of their own self, their own aflairs/nover iast a iong lime. Even i! they did (lor their whoie liio). it would just bo a waste of time. - ' Bufu-lkkan (being biown by the martial wind for one's whoie life) I wish that people never forgot the impressions, emotions, and resolves that they felt when they first encountered this Budo. So m e come to train in Jap an from overseas. That requires some doing, and [ take my hat off to all such people. However, just coming to Ja p a n once or twice and staying for a few days can't teach you that much. And especially those whose heads are full up and confused with concepts like speed, power, business etc., will find il harder and hardor to understand what this Budo is all about. Alter a few years, they may seem to be succeeding lo a certain extent. But then they have to think of how to protect the livelihood, status and honor has brought them, and it's the beginning of tho end. They do not even notice when they slip off the true path, and start wandering through a m are. And if they w ere aiono in this m a:e, then that would still bo tolerable, but once they start causing problems for others one must ask "just v/hat is this Budo you think you know?" In one sense, Budo is dangerous. It is quite foasibio that self-delense can bring about self-destruction. It mignt be tempting as a trade, but ihere aro traps lying all around. Once you understand Budo. and manage lo perfect it, then there will be few problems, and there is little danger of failure. But

unfortunately, there are but a few students who have reached that stage yet. Yet, you are still stuck with the problem of upholding your family, and your own livelihood. The only solution is to understand what 1am trying to say, endure it and keep on with the training. You get blown by the wind of Budo from Japan, take back the seeds of Budo, make its flowers bloom and its fruits ripen. You also have to cope with the natural struggle for survival. It may take several years, sevoral decades until a martial art that is truly suited to a certain country gets naturally weeded out and comes to rest. This must be stressed from the very beginning. Our Budo is the history of 1000 years of weeding out. How on earth is someone meant to understand'!! in just two or three years? Some people are caught up with the illusion that they have already understood -but the true way is rather to realize how you gradually stop understanding. Unless you have a pure heart that can listen carefully to what Soke says and try lo understand, then you will not be able to build up any trust relationships. Even if Soke teaches with alt his might, unless there is a receptade waiting lor his teaching, its just wasted ellort, it's peari belore swine. Even when he talks of the culture and art that has lived for 1000 years, some just get caught up in small concepts like speed and power, and miss what Is most important lor life. It faced with someone who doesn't understand no matter how much you tell them, then you have no choice but lo Icavo thorn to flounder. Four or five years ago, training at Bujinkan was quite hard, but now It has become very eolt. Some people question this. As far as 1 myself am concerned, I have no complaints about the present way ol training. It is just those who are no good at Budo yet who complain, and they should stop boforo they voice their logic", shut up and just train -they should be able to produce the answer irom Ihoro. II somoono doesn't understand Budo, it doesn't matter how much they wonder about whether the present training system is suited for country X or not: they haven't got a hope ol understanding. Just as Soko says, tftoy should keep on going with the training, first. And then if they see tho result, that's ail that's needed. In a real fight, it is correct judgment that decides whether you live or die, in a split of a sccond; speed and power are far less relevant. This power to judge correctly is nunured by the repeated practico of Taijutsu's variations and flow. To be able to respond correctly with both heart and body to Iho opponent's various changes, you must practice correctly, gently, and relaxed. Some people say 'that's too soli* or "too slow*, but if you are trying to learn correct movements nothing can be 'too soft' or too slow*. Surely this is plain logic. After you are able to move correctly, you should just move in a natural style suited lo your own body, if you think about speed and power from the beginning, you lose your menial flexibility, start moving as your ego dictates, and become unable to change yourself to respond to your opponent'6 changes. It may sound like a matter of course, but during your training you will undergo various social and personal experiences. Not all of them will be fun. On the contrary, trying, sad, aggravating, or boring things are more common. That is exactly why Soke is preaching a method whereby anyone can leam together and urge each other on enjoyably, without forgetting the most important point, the soul of the martial arts. No matter howoften you tell them, those who are stubborn, who lack a cooperative nature, who want to be No. 1, or who have too strong a desire to maintain their egos, will not be able to understand this martial a rt The NIN of Nirjutsu can also be interpreted as the NIN of Ninshiki (awareness). Soke says that true courage is being aware of everything, and then going beyond this. If this is lacking, then no matter how many techniques you know you will make mistaken decisions. If you just try and think things out yourself, therelf often be mistakes. This applies even more to those still undergoing training. Making mistakes is unavoidable. If you think you are mistaken, then correct it. If you practice again correctly, then that's ail you need. This also requires courage, ft takes time, natural lime, until you can understand Budo. And those who cant endure the many years, are no different from those who don't understand culture, art, and human nature. . Toshiro Nagalo (Moko)
