About the Author

Fumon Tanaka was born in 1943. He started learning kendo (the modern version of sword fighting) at the age of thirteen, and has been practicing martial arts ever since. He is the leading authority on the traditional martial arts in Japan, and has written many books on the subject, including SamuraiFightingArts published by Kodansha International in 2003. In 1998 he traveled to France as part of the Nihon Budo delegation selected by the Ministry of Education and the Agency for Cultural Affairs. Since then, he has frequently been invited to teach in Germany, Italy, England, France, Denmark, and Sweden.

Once again another fantastic book by Soke Fumon Tanaka.

This book goes into great detail about one of the most famous Samurai Swordsman ever to live.

There are a lot of books out there right now on Miyamoto Musashi's life story, but this book focuses more
on how he actually defeated his opponents with a rare insight to his fighting techniques.

A MUST read for all dedicated Kobudo students.

seller posted quickly, the book is for covering the historical techniques, not the actual system ( which changed over time).
for me it was worth the purchase, if your wanting his life story then get the lone samurai by william scott wilson.

This is a great book with plenty of illustrations. I was hoping for a little more about the history of Musashi though.

Interesting look at techniques from different koryu and sword schools. Good pictures and decent explanations - definately not a teaching manual, but martial arts fans/buffs will enjoy this book

Bought to complete a collection like a lot of Koryu books neither enough detail to build a skill or understand more than general concepts. Mr Tanaka is .. well rather young to be Soke of so very many arts..
