Pressestimmen

"At last! The martial arts have long awaited a book on genuine iaidõ. It could only have been done properly through a Japanese-American collaboration like this—Master Shimabukuro, with his unparalleled expertise and classical training, and Mr. Pellman, who has translated this unique philosophy into understandable Western terms. Flashing Steel will be a true milestone of the art."
—Alfonso Gomez, Martial Arts Director, University of California, San Diego, CA

Points of Interest
Flashing Steel should be of interest to ANY martial artist, because we have included philosophy and theory applicable to all martial arts.

Flashing Steel contains the COMPLETE system of Eishin-Ryu Iaijutsu, along with practice drills and cutting technique.

Remember: true martial arts are about life and death . . . . and the two are inseparable. Flashing Steel not only teaches you about training in samurai swordsmanship, but how to have a samurai attitude and achieve victory in all areas of your life.

This book has something for everybody interested in martial arts not just swordsmanship. If you want to learn the basic moves for sword drills or kata from a recognised and reputable school then you are more than adequately catered for with a full run-down of the core teachings of Eishin Ryu. The descriptions and the photographs are clear and well thought out. If you follow Eishin Ryu or its derivatives anyway, this section is informative and can add to your appreciation of your own style. The best thing is that this section is the least important of the book. The main part of the book gives you an insight into the deeper aspects of training properly in any art and it reinforces many of the lessons that my instructors have tried to teach me. Difficult ideas are explained succinctly and should be accessable to beginners as well as experienced martial artists. It is difficult to talk about philosophy and attitudes to life as well as training whilst remaining practical and relevant to people who live in the real world, but this book manages it.
To sum up this book made me want to train and hasn't made it back onto the bookshelf yet, I keep dipping into it. Buy this book and lend it to everyone you train with.

Upon reading the first perhaps 30 pages of this book, I was astounded. I thought that I was merely purchasing an introductory guide to Muso Jikiden Eishin-Ryu Iaijutsu. I was thrilled to find that it was so much more.
After having studied and informally taught martial arts (Hap Ki Do) for over 13 years, I have consistently emphasized a melding of the Eastern philosophy and the technique of the art. This book achieves the same in a marvelously eloquent, yet concise, manner.
What is presented in the first 50 pages or so includes a beautifully written treatise on Bushido, the way of the samurai, including wonderful parables and stories about famous warriors, such as Miyamoto Musashi and Takeda Shingen. This includes the practical attitude toward how to live one's life that the samurai maintained. It is written in such a way as to be easily understood by all, Easterner and Westerner alike. This way of thought (reminiscent of the Art of War or A Book of Five Rings) can greatly benefit anyone's life, whether they are interested in the Asian fighting arts, or not.
Of course, in addition to this remarkable exposition is about 200 pages of well-explained, well-illustrated (with plenty of clear photos) instruction of Eishin-Ryu iaijutsu. Included with the waza (technique), is full documentation of sword and samurai traditions, customs, and ettiquette. The style itself is very diffucult, as iaijutsu is the art of drawing the sword, destroying your enemy, and resheathing in one rapid, fluid motion. The book is quite clear, however, and provides a model introduction, or supplement, to formal dojo training in this art.

The first 67 pages of "Flashing Steel" would be superb reading for ANY performer involved with ANY activity. I have been engrossed with the Martial Arts since 1953 and am one of the few who have achieved high rank in several disciplines related to the Asian Martial Arts. My personal library is replete with classic and not so classic works on the subject. Those works that I do not own, I have probably read or been asked to review. Rarely does a book come along within this topic that has much to offer that hasn't already been given. It is more of an honor NOT to have written a book on the Martial Arts these days, as we in the U.S. seem to have a pleathora of 40 year old 9 & 10 degree Black Belts, having the temperment of an artist but lacking the skill. Not so with this effort! The first 67 pages are a wonderful guide in explaining what the Arts are really all about. The writers are approaching a heretofor understanding of mental preparation for outstanding consistant performance not found anywhere else. I have most of the Sport Psychology works as well, and must warn all to save their money as they are essentially worthless. As a Sport Hypnotherapist, it has been my pleasure in developing a paradigm filling in the "gaps" that the writers of "Flashing Steel" came close to: the programing of the deeper or sub-conscious mind through hypnosis. This cannot be shown in book form, but must be demonstrated. In lack of that, "Flashing Steel" is the best I have yet found in combining the philosophies of the East with the West in Mental Preparation. Of course the remainder of the Book is as good as pictures can make it. The writers have provided a magnificent work. I congratulate them. It is MUST reading for all performers, and does an admirable job of presenting the sword.

A great book. Good for iaido practioners and students. I recommend strongly getting this book and reading it if you are not shure you want to start iaido. I also recommend beginners reading it too to help avoid some common problems.
The book also has wazas (techniques) like 66 or something. Alot of pictures to help give a more in-depth feel on how the waza is preformed.

Not only does this book provide great information on many wazas or techniques but it also gives much insight into the whole Samurai way of thinking.
