More About the Author

"One of the ten most influential living martial artists in the world" - 2006 Black Belt Magazine

Stephen K. Hayes was born in Wilmington, Delaware, in 1949, and grew up in Dayton, Ohio. He has traveled throughout North America, Japan, Europe, the Arctic, China, Tibet, Nepal, and India in the pursuit of perfection through the study of the Asian martial arts and spiritual traditions.

He began his martial arts career in Ohio as a teenager in the 1960s. In 1985, he was elected to the prestigious Black Belt Hall of Fame, honoring him for his years of pioneering work in introducing the legendary Japanese ninja martial arts to the Western world. He was awarded the extremely rare honor of ju-dan 10th degree senior master license in the Togakure Ryu ninja martial arts in 1993, and in 1997, he founded the martial art of To-Shin Do.

Stephen K. Hayes has been featured in publications ranging from Black Belt to Playboy to Inside Kung-Fu to Tricycle Buddhist Review. His biography is listed in the international edition of Who's Who. He is the author of twenty books which translate the timeless knowledge of the East into pragmatic lessons for contemporary Western life. His books have sold well over a million copies, and many of his volumes have been published in a variety of different foreign languages around the world.

A 1971 graduate of Miami University of Oxford, Ohio, Stephen K. Hayes majored in theater. He later returned to Miami University for post-graduate study of comparative religions in the early 1990s, focusing on translation of Japanese Tendai exoteric and esoteric liturgical texts.

In 1991, Stephen K. Hayes went through formal ordination to become a teacher in the 1,200-year-old Vajrayana esoteric meditation tradition. From the mid-1990s, he has worked to translate texts for the practice of Vajrakilaya esoteric meditations in the Sakya and Drikung Kagyu traditions.

During the years he lived in Japan, he used his professional acting skills in a broad variety of Japanese television and film projects. Most notable to American audiences was his role alongside Richard Chamberlain and Toshiro Mifune in the NBC samurai epic Shogun.

He has taught and demonstrated effective self-protection skills to military and law-enforcement groups including the U.S. Air Force Academy, the FBI Academy, and members of Britain's elite SAS. He has worked on special projects under contract with the United States Defense Intelligence Agency.

He regularly served in the 1990s as personal protection escort and security advisor for Nobel Peace Prize laureate the Dalai Lama of Tibet.

He taught as Adjunct Professor in the Masters of Business Management program of the McGregor School of Antioch University, and serves on the University of Dayton Crotty Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership Advisory Council, and the Union Institute & University Center for Clinical Mindfulness and Meditation.

He is Chairman of the Board of SKH Quest Centers, a company dedicated to promoting the benefits of training for self-development. He spends much of the year traveling the world as a teacher, seminar leader, and lecturer. His presentations inspire by translating his extensive background in martial and meditation arts into practical lessons for handling the pressures, uncertainties, and stresses of life.

By sookie stackhouse on January 5, 2013
Format: Paperback
Ok first off i want to say this is a great book on the older bujinkan system its worth the used price and i would suggest this volume because of the many drills and info in it alone especially the drills. well useful even now in the bujinkan system.

When I myself was first buying these books in school i could only afford seminars and camps and such and these books filled the gaps in my training in togakure ryu (as it was called then), as previous i had only small training in judo,shorinji and a sogobujutsu that contained taijutsu and weapon arts. as far as i can see they will still work if you choose to follow the path of the ninja now. its a hard path i dont care what people write. not everyone can be ninja but everyone can learn ninjutsu if they want it bad enuff.

I also want to say this one doesnt have quite as much politcal dribble except the questions asked by the publisher but becasue he was the ONLY one writing about true ninjutsu in understandable english at the time he did well...

he did what was expected of him to do and what the bujinkan has ALWAYS done , embellished here and there and made a little extra cash off the the ninja side of it...as far as rumors and why people hate him from there countries the exact same or worse rumors go on about them as well. seems like nowdays they are trying to weed it out tho i hope it works. only the hard training will make it right anyway.

i dont care for his newer system to shin do but these first few books were gold. and WELL worth the used price!!!
