5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 28 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Flashing Steel: Mastering Eishin-Ryu Swordmanship (Paperback)
This book is important for more than it's exposition of this particular art. It is a masterwork of philosophy disguised as a technical manual. while it adresses the particulars of this ryu's method, virtually every sentance touches on some poingnant philosophic idea. Each idea desrving real attention because they were arrived at at the balance point of life and death. This is a must read for everyone and particularly for anyone involved in martial arts training. For students just beginning it is pretty much all you really need to know. For instructors this book provides the articulation of concepts and ideas we all feel but are rarely able to put into words. The concepts contained herein apply to all martial arts. this work is a great gift ot us all and deserves a place amoung the classics. I could go on and on. Just buy it and judge for yourself.
