wow a great historical piece this predates fujitas kenpo zukal and shows some good roots here....again mr eric went out of his way to do some extra research which helps this is not really a teach your self karate book but in the time it was written i see why its a dojo/training accessory that should be got by
any who train in any kind of ninjutsu/kobudo because unfortunately in my training research everything has kenpo jujutsu in it as well as some versions or views of kenpo back then had koppo and koshi or s*** in it also in my research again this is mine...there was alot of blurring between koga and iga as some of those ryu bounced back and forth its more than one ryu ...so the whole koga ryu is extinct i dont think is exactly truth.
but there is truth in going back and tracing some of these ryu study that is how/where alot of people claim some certain koga claims are BS rightfully so.
also love the research on the spy towards the end awesome.

There is not much to say about this. It is an excellent presentation of self defense, takedowns, and capture techniques. It is geared towards police, so the techniques reflect the goal of capturing a relatively uninjured violent criminal...but it is excellent.

None of the modern, so-called "masters" write anything this good.

Another interesting translation by Mr. Eric Shahan of late 19th/early 20th century Japanese literature concerning bugei application & history. I highly recommend reading it.
