Hatsumi - Swords,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Japanese Sword Fighting: Secrets of the Samurai (Hardcover)
A disappointing book. Two stars given for the quality of printing and amount of pages - not for content!
Has no useful training techniques whatever.
To me, this book seems to be another attempt at validating his 'art', and an ego massage for Masaaki!
Doesn't contain any 'secrets' that aren't already in the public domain.
Browsed through it - won't read it!

If you have not read and only browsed through it then you cannot really comment. Reviews like this really annoy me. Also secrets are found in the way things are transmitted and through practice, you cannot obtain all information from something by reading it.
"You should not just read the records of Budo and think you have completely understood it. Budo only has substance in a world of great dignity" Masaaki Hatsumi.
