Synopses & Reviews
Heading further down the warriors path while delving into both the ancient and modern history of ninjutsu, the topics include combat training drills, the emergence and techniques of female ninja agents, exercises to increase awareness, and the goton-po theory of escape and invisibility. The concise writing and numerous photographs make the subject matter clear to the experienced martial artist and the novice.
The ancient combat techniques of flowing action, the subtle energy of hands, the fighting methods of the kunoichi (the female ninja), the unique sensitivity training to develop fighting intuition--all these are explained by Stephen K. Hayes, the first non-Japanese ever awarded the title of shidoshi (teacher of the warrior ways of enlightenment), in his fourth fully illustrated volume for Black Belt Books.
