5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on basic use of the sword., June 26, 2009
This review is from: The Fighting Sword: Illustrated Techniques and Concepts (Paperback)
As a lifetime student of the martial arts, including the use of weapons, I found this book to be a fantastic introduction into using the sword. This is a large formated book and one of the many things I love about this book are the clear and beautifully drawn illustrations. Many times photos fail to give detailed information when showing a technique. However, this fantastic book is illustrated with large drawings and the captions are clear and easy to understand. Though I was trained in Japanese swordmanship, I found that most of the techniques shown in this text were easily adapted to my sword style. In conclusion, if you are looking for a book on the use of the sword, this is a must buy book. No matter what sword system you are training in, this book will be of great value for you. Rating: 5 stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Wakizashi Jutsu, Tanto Jutsu)
