I wrote this biography of Fujita Seiko because I couldn't understand why it hadn't already been done! Here is a man who not only claimed to be "The Last Ninja," but, was also a prolific author of books on Japanese budo.

In life, Fujita was a student of Ninjutsu, Jujutsu, Jojutsu, Shurikenjutsu, and many other arts, including the gendai arts of Judo, Kendo and Karate. His influence was profound and expansive, with his reach touching all of the great masters of his day, Motobu, Mabuni, Funakoshi, Taira, Ueshiba, etc.

In death, he was a mystery, which in the West, resulted in the unscrupulous use of his name by certain individuals claiming to be modern Koga Ninja. In my book you will learn how all of the dynamics surrounding this strange man, can be understood. It is work that will be instructive to those practicing all of the arts mentioned above.

Great historical book. Keeps to the facts while keeping the mystery of the ninja alive. Any one with an interest in martial arts or military history would enjoy this recounting. The photos from WWII authenticate the real man.

This book does a terrific job of filling in many of the holes in the story of the life and times of the "last Koga ninja." For anyone interested in martial arts history, it's a must have. Congratulations to the author for ferreting out such a fascinating story. Sometimes truth is more interesting than fiction.

Like others, I have always wanted to know more about the life and mystery surrounding Fujita Seiko and the Koga ryu ninja lineage. The book cites all the sources used, and goes into specific detail about Fujita's early life, how he came into the arts he studied, and which schools he either passed on, or took to the grave with him. It's also interesting to read about his funeral, and all the highly-respected budo/bujutsu and koryu practicioners that attended, testifying to Fujita's credentials. I also didn't know about his kempo, jojutsu and shurikenjutsu arts, for which he was known in Japan at the time, rather than his "secret" side (Koga Wada ha). All in all, a quick, informative read. It's less than a hundred pages, but for 10 dollars, you can't beat this!

I found this book both interesting and insightful. Well researched and written. My only advice is to enlarge the font and add some more photographs. The core of the book is only 70 pages long, but for $10, it's money well spent.

Format: Paperback
Great book detailing key moments in fujita life I think it was a great work I also agree with him about ninjutsu today! fujita is a very good example of true shinobi.

There are key points in the book that say a lot about true shinobi and these things IMO don't exist today (maybe in small groups) like his training with his grandfather and possibly why Fujita was chosen and not his father very interesting to me, his possible involvement or training in WWII is a very good read in my mind his skill would be very valuable it would be foolish not to use him.

I think the great thing about Fujita was his mind very strong and there was much time spent on his physical ability which I do not see today, his skill was very high level and recognized by many masters of his day.
