Customer Review

on 28 March 2000
This is an excellent handbook for anyone interested in the traditional (koryu) Japanese sword arts. The kata's are described in an acessable step by step format, and additional guidance is given on developing the mindset necessarey for focused, relaxed practice.
This book is useful for people interested in developing both their physical technique and mental clarity.
An initial understanding of the traditional japanese combat arts is most helpful in understanding Eshin Ryu Iaido, but a qualified instructor is necessary if one is to presue their iaido or iaijutsu further.
I would not recomend this book for those 'martial artists' who are interested in quick, easy and flashy westernised forms of the fighting arts with their nunchuks and 'karate chops'
