With this book, the author wishes to present a overview of the invaluable historical legacy of Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi, current Soke of schools combined to form the Bujinkan Dojo. The extraordinary humanity and martial experience of this man are quite uncommon. The teachings transmitted to him by his teacher, Toshitsugu Takamatsu include Japanese martial arts, history and philosophy.
Amoungst these various teachings, that of Ninjutsu is particulary special. Although by now everyone has heard of the mystical Ninja, they are not truly well known.
Soke Masaaki Hatsumi talks personally in this book, clarifying ideas and transmitting great wisdom. About this book Soke comments:
“... It’s important to understand these feelings more than, let us say, the “techniques” of Budo. It’s important to go beyond techniques and see the life in Budo. You can do this by continually reading over these types of concept, the things that I have said today, things that simply cannont be understood the first time you hear them. If this book is taken and read over and over again by someone, it will change that person’s direction in Budo. It will realing them if they move off course. They may start to waver and get confused in their own training, but Reading this book should help them to focus more clearly, and bring them back on track...”
