fun to read, difficult to understand.
on November 29, 2005
i think this book is a metaphor of what Sensei Hatsumi wishes to teach in genenral. his books are chaotic, hard to understand and have to be read twice (or more) to be understood.
this book features magnificient pictures, a lot of explanations about the historical context and some technique descriptions.
I would tend to recommend this book to advanced martial artists, as the title suggests, but i have to admit that the pictures can be a good introduction to beginners to spark their imaginations.
Read between the lines on this one, re-read it a few times, and weigh it against your own martial arts background. always seek a qualified instructor to practice these techniques properly and safely.
