As a warrior, one should constantly practice awareness, from the moment one awakes in the morning; one should keep a watchful eye on their own behavior and manners, their conduct, never forgetting the manners of humanism. These are all Bu-Fu. Never act violently nor be rough in nature, and at no time should you take life lightly. Try to build up a gentle life style without hurrying through it. Consciously relax. Be not afraid of life; allow yours to be rich and gentle in love, in accord with the spirit of “Kajo Chikusei” or “Kajo Waraku”, a flower’s heart, the spirit contained within growing bamboo.
Of all the categories for a ninja to master, two remained the most important: spiritual refinement (Seishiteki Kyoyo) involving the mind and spirit, and unarmed defense (Tai-Jutsu) involving physical movements and techniques. When combined, miraculous powers are reaped for the mind, body and spirit are unified (Shin-Gi-Tai Icchi).
Carrying a mouse in one’s pocket and letting it loose in a room in the enemy’s house where people are sleeping can cause great panic. Or if an even greater diversion is necessary, one can attach fireworks to its tail.
Thanks to i09 for sharing the below stellar cheesy GI Joe flavored fight scene. I mean, zip line sword fighting? Stupidly wonderful. Also thanks to Elementary, Sherlock for posting a LARGE series of behind-the-scenes gifs from the first Hobbit movie! They are lovely! How much does the below selected one remind you of certain classes I’ve taught? They even have a red squishy mat!! ~Jenn
