    They do have Internet access in the Bahamas, and I'm in between training sessions, so.....

    Book is progressing and should go to the printer next month. There have been so many unexpected twists and turns in its progress, though, I am still reluctant to get more specific. Give me a couple more weeks....

    Oh, and there are people on this thread who have guessed correctly.

    Cheers!

    So if I have read through the thread correctly we are looking at these possibilities:

    1. Deity and the Sword by Otake
    2. TSKSR book by Sugino
    3. Kashima Shin ryu book by Seki Humitake
    4. Jodo Kyohan
    5. Jodo by Krieger

    Does that look about right?

    Default Jodo Book by Pascal Krieger

    Hi!
    That Kriegers "The way of the stick" will be published at koryu-books is not impossible but i highly doubt it. A friend of mine has one of the last copys sold of this exellent book! He buyed at a seminar with Pascal Krieger and as a little extra there is a original calligraphy and a didication in it! My friend told me that there are plans for a completly new book (when Mr. Krieger retires!) because some parts of the old book are (slightly) outdated now. By the way if anyone of you has the chance to buy a copy of the film by Pascal Krieger " One or two things i now about budo" get it! Its very good and very entertaining! There´s even a old film in it with Donn Draeger performing a okuden kata of TSKSR Tachiai!
    TSKSR book by Sugino! Naaa! My teacher is working on the authorized german translation. I know nothing of a english translation. A 99% No!

    Thanks for the update... I now provisionally retract the word "filthy," with further retractions possible pending further updates

    My opinion is, in all likelihood, worth exactly what you are paying for it.

    Kevin, while the book certainly appears awesome, and I am thrilled to receive this news, it still isn't enough to make your pun funny

    Default Koryu information resources

    I've been researching koryu for quite sometime now. I've been searching espically for Maniwa Nen-Ryu, Shingyoto-Ryu and Tatsumi-Ryu. I've done what I can through the few English books I can find and googling different combinations of the ryu's name, prefecture and systems. Anything anyone is willing to offer me is much appreciated.

    If you can read Japanese, Tomoyuki Yokose's Nihon no Kobudo, or Gakken's Nihon no Kenjutsu 1 & 2 are fairly accessible. Since the writers of these books aren't practitioners of the schools they write about there are some mistakes in their writing, but do offer a glimpse into Nen-ryu, Shingyoto-ryu and Tatsumi-ryu.

    You will not find these schools in the United States. There are simply no branch dojo out there.

    There are however shibu dojo for Tatsumi-ryu in Australia and France.

    Liam Keeley, who teaches Tatsumi Ryu in Australia, maintains an excellent website that you might find interesting:
    http://www.users.bigpond.net.au/koryu/tatsumi.html

    There is a Japanese-language website for Tatsumi Ryu, though I don't have it bookmarked on this computer.

    Mr. Keeley also wrote an article on the tojutsu of Tatsumi Ryu for one of the Koryu Bujutsu books; I think it is in volume 3. Volume 1 of that series contains an interview with the former headmaster of Tatsumi Ryu.

    There is a great chapter on Nen Ryu in Ellis Amdur's book Old School. I highly recommend that you read it if you are interested in the school.

    The only Shingyoto Ryu information that I have to offer is that there is at least one video clip on youtube, posted by Russ Ebert.
