p.s. Just as a sidenote, this book is a bit larger than I expected in terms of it's height and width. Think of a large magazine size and you'll have a good picture. Just thought I'd mention that since it suprised me.
Shinkendo is a relatively new sword discipline that combines the essentials of learning the sword.
As with most martial arts this is a reference manual and only by getting good instruction can you learn properly.
The books instructions are clear and the diagrams are in an easy to follow flow across the bottom of the pages.
The preface, biography and history are also well worth a read.
