"I just received a copy of the most amazing book: "Encyclopedia of Japanese Martial Arts." As with all Kodansha books, this one is beautifully well made [and] easy to use. . . . This book is a gem. . . . will stay close to me on my writing desk for easy reference as it is now an indispensable tool." – Examiner.com
"An impressive reference book. . . ." – Black Belt Magazine
"This book is a treasure trove of information for the student of Japanese martial arts and the scholar alike. It lives up to its name as an encyclopedia of the martial arts of Japan. The book contains entries on a broad range of subjects. . . . it fills an important gap in the available information due to its level of detail and Asian language references. . . . The book will appeal to a broad spectrum of Japanese martial arts enthusiasts from the dedicated student looking for detailed information on a specific term, art or person to the scholar or researcher looking for authentic information for use in an article, novel or film." – Aikido Journal
"This book is an exhaustively researched, important and authoritative resource on the Japanese martial arts and the rich historical and social tapestry within which it is embedded. . . .What distinguishes this encyclopedia is its rigorous authenticity. The text synthesizes Hall’s unique background, education, multi-language ability, research, and experience in the martial arts, Japanese culture and religion into a well-organized and formidable text. If you are interested in Japanese martial arts, its history or tradition, this is an important reference. I found it fascinating. I would recommend it. . . ." – Fighting Arts

The only complaint that I have is that the author treats as a certain historical aspects that are uncertain. Like the authenticity of such schools like Togakure Ryu or Kashima Shin Ryu.
If you are a practitioner of modern or classical Japanese martial arts, pick this book up today. There simply is no more authoritative encyclopedic reference device than this one to have in your library.
If you are a practitioner of classical Japanese martial arts or _koryu_, there is no question that you should have a copy of this book on your bookshelf. Practitioners of modern traditional Japanese martial arts will find this a good reference to help them connect the terms and concepts of their arts to the older Japanese martial arts from which they originated.
If you are a researcher of classical Japanese martial arts, consider this book the authoritative reference, whether you are an academic, writing fiction, or researching for games.
