              Advanced Stick Fighting

              Bushido, the way of the warrior, is deeply bound to the rich history of the martial traditions of Japan, which have drawn generations of devotees, as well as awe and respect worldwide. Of all the martial arts, bo-jutsu, or stick fighting, is one of the least understood and most i...ntriguing, having been largely hidden for centuries. In Advanced Stick Fighting, Masaaki Hatsumi, the most renowned budo and ninja grandmaster in the world, and author of Stick Fighting and The Way of the Ninja, reveals some of the secrets surrounding this revered fighting art. Hatsumi offers the reader thoughtful reflections on bushido, its venerable history, and its role in today's world. He also discusses the origins of bo-jutsu, which he sees as inexorably linked to the evolution of humankind; it is both universal and timeless. While the highly acclaimed and long-selling Stick Fighting dealt mainly with self-defense using short sticks, this book reveals to the reader a number of advanced techniques using medium and long sticks that were originally used by samurai swordsmen and military commanders. Lavish illustrations accompany the explanations and help further demonstrate the graceful, mysterious movements of stick fighting. The original Japanese text is also included in the appendix. This book will be an important addition to the libraries of readers who are seriously interested in pursuing the more advanced applications of stick fighting. It will also deepen readers' understanding of bushido in general, and bring them closer to Hatsumi's personal philosophy -- that only through complete devotion to the martial arts as a way of life can self-enlightenment be attained, and that the wisdom gained through this can promote a true and lasting world of peace.

              The Art of Life and Death: Lessons in Budo From a Ninja Master (Hardback)

              Budo is art and is connected to all other arts. Even in the midst of battle, art can be found--at least, for those who survive. There are no secrets in budo; there are only lessons that we refuse to learn. Daniel Fletcher and Sleiman Azizi studied ninjutsu under the tutelage of t...he venerable Masaaki Hatsumi of the Bujinkan Dojo and in their new book they pay homage to their Sensei by revealing a host of insightful discoveries. As is the tradition in Eastern disciplines, these lessons are conveyed in stories, poetry, art, and proverbs. Their words of wisdom about the nature of life and death will provoke thought and perhaps break through certain obstacles in your own life that prevent you from achieving transformation. There is a Japanese proverb that admonishes a student not to step on the shadow of his teacher. In writing this book, Azizi and Fletcher discovered that no matter how hard they tried to avoid stepping on it, their teacher's shadow was always there--a reminder of his influence on their lives while at the Bujinkan Dojo. And so, while this book relates their own personal discoveries, they hope that, more than anything, it will be seen as a testament to the vitality of the grandmaster and his budo teachings. --
