Well worth buying as the author covers a lot of ground on the subject matter and still has time to write an interesting story on the 47 Ronin.

Iai: The Drawing of the Sword is an excellent

work documenting a little known style of

japanese swordsmanship called iai-do, or,

"The Way of the drawing of the sword".

This style of martial art centers on the act

of drawing one's sword as quickly and

efficiently as possible. A person well adept

at it is capable of tossing a fruit into the

air, stepping back, drawing his weapon,

slicing the fruit and resheathing before the

orange halves can hit the ground. It is a

deadly poetry of motion to behold.

Mr.Craig continues to teach this and other

traditional martial arts at his Dojo in

Houston, Texas. He attained the title of

Shi-han or "Master Teacher" in 1973. This

title is rarely given to westerners. I've

visited and talked with Mr. Craig and must

say he is an honorable man and a competent

sensei.

Such a complete waste of money, I refuse to waste more of my time reviewing that waste of good paper.
