In his new job, Ninpo Gairon, Alex Esteve Daishihan offers a fascinating insight into the history and culture of the Bujinkan Dojo and the life of its founder, the soke Masaaki Hatsumi. Looking at the traditions and practices of the nine schools of the Bujinkan Dojo, this book gives the reader an idea of how traditional Japanese martial arts are transmitted, how the arts of the ninpo differ from conventional schools of military techniques, and how the wisdom of previous generations has passed to the present day.
The book is illustrated with more than 300 photographs, 192 pages in full color and printed on high quality paper of 135 gr.
Congratulations on this occasion for publishing a book like this.
Mr. Esteve has made a magnificent shugyo - an immersion in body and soul - in the true essence of the Bujinkan martial arts, during that unique period of time that goes from the 20th century to the beginning of the 21st century, capturing the memory of the true experiences of countless warriors.
I can almost hear the book screaming ... I'm sure that when people hear about this book and read it, they will be filled with excitement and discover new aspects of life.
Thank you very much this time for publishing a book like this, I must thank Mr. Alex Esteve for his excellent work and continued support for Bujinkan.
It is a wonderful book!
Soke Masaaki Hatsumi
