SOKE ANSHU (宗家 暗主)

BIRTH OF THE BUDO RYU


Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson; Headmistress of the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo, is one of the most sought after instructors in the traditional and eclectic martial traditions. She is a member of the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame and is the only non-Japanese to receive a Menkyo Kaiden (The highest level license that exist in Japanese martial arts) and Sokeship (inheritor / grandmaster) of a koryu bujutsu / ninjutsu tradition.


In 2004 she wanted to bring back the tradition of Japanese Bujutsu, something that she felt has been lost in the modern world. To do this she established the Budo Ryu, meaning School of the Warrior Way.


The Budo Ryu Kai (Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo) was developed by her personal research, training, experience, as well as the collection of seven Japanese warrior traditions (also called Nana Musha-den) and combining all of these facets into a way to fully develop one’s mind, body and spirit as one. 


The Budo Ryu Kai is Soke Anshu Christa Jacobson's modern approach towards the study of ancient samurai & ninja warfare.  The seven warrior arts that are taught within the Budo Ryu Kai are:


Koka Ryu Kempo (甲賀流拳法)

Tenjin Ryū Jujutsu (天神流柔術)

Tomo Ryu Shinobijutsu (戸猛流忍術)

Eishin-ryū Iaijutsu (英信流居合術)

Koto Ryu Koppojutsu (虎倒流骨法術)

Gyokko-Ryū Kosshijutsu (玉虎流骨指術)

Togakure-ryū Ninpo Taijutsu (戸隠流忍法体術)


Outside of the martial arts, Soke Anshu works in the adult entertainment industry as an escort / courtesan and erotic dancer.  She is an active pagan, who openly practices Wicca. She resides in Kansas City, Kansas where she owns and operates the Budo Ryu Kai, more commonly known as the Budo Ryu Ninjutsu Dojo.
