Works like this are absolute treasures 7. Juli 2014
Von Adam Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Shahan's work continues to impress me. His ability and effort to deliver modern translations, that are extremely well done, along with well structured and edited work allows us to have - otherwise impossible to find - opportunities to learn. Honestly, we can listen to old teachers and read classics written by upper-class warriors, but works like this are absolute treasures providing the reader, history buff or martial artist a clear perspective of the past. As well, Shahan's footnotes and commentary once again make the reader feel as though the author is sitting next to you during the read. Looking forward to the next two editions to be released - and other works from the author.
Very useful addition to english language resources 2. Juni 2014

Some great images from the original work, the translation is clear, I have already found it a really useful reference. Only reason I gave it 4 not 5 was a couple of places where including one more image would have made things clearer.

An interesting look into late 19th century bugei. 31. Mai 2014
Von Thomas Urso - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As mentioned in the book's description, this is an English translation of a late 19th century manual concerning the martial arts of Japan. Being a practitioner of Japanese & Korean swordsmanship, in addition to having a strong affinity for history, I find Mr. Shahan's publication most enjoyable. The insight & ideology of the original author (Sugawara Sadamoto) is fascinating as this is a Japanese officer living during the military rise of post-Edo period Japan. He was a modern soldier (for the time) yet he still promoted the learning of traditional budo/bugei (martial arts) for military training. Again, most fascinating.

BTW, this book may be particularly interesting to students of Kendo/Kumdo & schools of swordsmanship who practice tameshigiri (test cutting). The book provides information pertaining to several martial disciplines such as sojutsu (the study of the spear) & even swimming, it also dedicates a nice portion to the sword. Gekken (撃剣, the precursor to modern Kendo, kyukgum 격검 in Korean) & shizan (skill test cutting) are described. This is very significant as I personally have not run across much literature in English of the previously mentioned disciplines' pre-20th century practice. A welcome rarity in my opinion.

While I would consider the original purpose of this book to be for instruction, attempting to completely understand its contents without a quality instructor is a bit of a fallacy in my humble opinion. However, it absolutely is a wonderful look into bugei of the late 19th century as it was meant for the modern Japanese military. I thoroughly recommend this book.

Fascinating Little Book, if a Little Messy 8. Februar 2015
Von JHL - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It's great to have this available in print in English, and it's hard not to like Eric Shahan, who clearly has a great time figuring this text out and tracking down side stories on the internet. The book itself isn't something you'd use as a manual now - indeed since videos of kata became available no book is - but it's very interesting to get the 19th century point of view about kendo, kyudo and other martial arts. If it had been proofread the rating would be five stars, but it doesn't seem as if the spell-check was on at all times. Bottom line the enthusiasm overcomes the text errors and I have ordered the next volume.
