Format: Paperback
As the writer explaines, this book is for people who are not formiliar with japanese martial arts. Its intended to give some background and to interest the reader in some of the japanese arts. But even with that in mind i found to book to be verry shallow in content. Not because i myself have trained in six differend martial arts (4 japanese), but the lack of insight in the techniques of the varies of arts. It covers more the background of the arts and even in that area it lacks depth.

I gave this book a 3 because of the intension of this book and the effort of Sensei Horton.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good basic informational text for those thinking about taking a Japanese Martial Art. 30 May 2011
By Joseph J. Truncale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was published in Great Britain and provides some very basic information on some of the Japanese Martial Arts. This is not a comprehensive study of Japanese martial arts but rather a short and concise introductory treatment of each combat system. Some of the Japanese martial arts mentioned in this volume include: Aikido, Aiki-Jutsu, Iaido, Jo-Jutsu, Judo, Ju-Jutsu, Karate, Kempo, Kendo, Kenjutsu, Kyudo, Naginatado, Ninjutsu, Yari-Jutsu, Sumo and several other less known martial art systems.

The final section covers some of the most common Japanese Martial Terms. This is very valuable informative for those learning any Japanese martial art system.

In conclusion, this book obviously was written for new young students to provide them with a simple overview of some Japanese martial arts. This is a good text for anyone who is thinking about taking a Japanese Martial Art, but is not sure which one he or she should seek to learn.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Predator Hunter: A Warrior's Memoir)
