    Ninjutsu no Gokui
    Written during the Ninja “boom” of the early 1900’s, Gingetsu Itoh seeks to dispel the myth that Ninjutsu is an art comprised solely of magic and sorcery. The moving pictures and billboards of the day have lead “the average person to consider Ninjutsu to be a kind of sorcery or magic”. The techniques within are as relevant today as those contained in The Art of War. Itoh “Sensei” shows how the skills of those practicing Ninjutsu came about and the way those same methods were verified on the battlefields of the century of fighting that was the Warring States period With arresting anecdotes from military logs of the period as well as insightful commentary as to how this knowledge can be applied, Itoh Sensei presents a complete picture of what was understood about Ninjutsu in the early twentieth century.

    I found an old article in a journal written by Ito Gingetsu back in 1918 (see http://www.e-budo.com/forum/showthre...852#post495852). It was written in English, but I'm sure it was written in Japanese and someone must have translated and entered it into the journal for him. I was wondering if this article was based on Ninjutsu no Gokui.

    That's the first even partial translation of his work that ive seen other than bits of chapter titles.
