    Default New book: "Encyclopedia of Japanese Martial Arts"

    Hey everyone,

    Just a heads up Dr. David Hall and Kodansha have a new book coming out called, "Encyclopedia of Japanese Martial Arts." It should be out in Oct. You should be able to find it on Amazon.com. It will be packed with useful budo terminology, kanji, photos, etc. I think it will be a must have for any budoka!

    Best regards,
    Chris

    Default New Koryu Encyclopedia

    Hello all,

    Dave Hall's new Encyclopedia of Japanese Martial Arts has now been published by Kodansha. My copy reached me on Friday, and you can see my review on amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Encyclopedia-J...l+encyclopedia).

    The short version: this is a fantastic book, with lots of information from the Bugei Ryuha Daijiten and other Japanese sources made available in English. It has detailed information on several famous (and quite a few obscure) koryu as well as more general information about Japanese martial culture. I highly recommend it as a reference source.

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

    BTW, picked up my copy. GREAT resource. Thanks for the heads up, and to Dr. Hall for writing it.

    "Put strength into your practice, and avoid conceit. It is easy enough to understand a strategy and guard against it after the matter has already been settled, but the reason an opponent becomes defeated is because they didn't learn of it ahead of time. This is the nature of secret matters. That which is kept hidden is what we call the Flower."
