It gives the reader information on how to chose a sword, how to clean and look after it, and how to undertake a basic set of sword drills.
Flashy and extensive it is not - but simple, clear, deep and with feeling it is. If you don't have a teacher of your own, and have enough interest in japanese swordsmanship to buy a sword - this is a good book to get you started.

If you own a Japanese blade this is a book you should take time to read. Excellent detail on the history and understanding of what it is you draw from the saya.Published on 22 Nov. 2013 by Mr. M. J. Enright
