Ninjutsu is the most renowned and misunderstood of all martial arts. The long history of ninjutstu is often murky; surrounded by mystery and legend. Here, for the first time, is an in-depth, factual look at the entire art of ninjutsu, including emergence of the ninja warriors and philosophy in feudal Japan; detailed historical events; its context in the development of other schools of martial arts; and the philosophies and exercises of the school today. Based on more than ten years of study and translation of authentic Japanese texts, including many that have never before been translated, this is the most comprehensive and accurate study on the art of ninjutsu ever written outside of Japan. This ninja book includes studies of ninjutsu history, philosophy, wisdom, and presents a wide range of information from authors, historians, chronicles and scrolls in order to foster a deep understanding of this "shadowy" art. For those who train in ninjutsu, for other martial art practitioners, for historians, and for anyone with an interest in Japanese feudal history or Japanese martial arts, The Ninja: Ancient Shadow Warriors of Japan shines a light on this enigmatic subject.

The Book of Ninja, the ultimate ninjutsu manual, was penned in 1676 by a ninja known as Fujibayashi. Born in the post-civil war era of Japan, Fujibayashi collected and combined information from the ninja clans of Iga - regarded to be the homeland of the ninja - and compiled it into an authoritative book. Known as The Bansenhukai, this book has now been translated into English by the Historical Ninjutsu Research Team. It is widely considered to be the 'bible' of 'ninjutsu', the arts of the ninja. The Book of Ninja begins with an in-depth introduction to the history of Fujibayashi's scripture. Then the teachings themselves, appealingly rendered in this translation, take us into the secrets of guerilla warfare and espionage. We learn how to become the ultimate spy, whether through a network of spies or by hiding in plain sight. Through the stealth and concealment tactics of night-time infiltration and through weapon and tool building skills, as well as mission planning, we can learn much both about warfare and about adopting the right mindset for tackling our own inner and outer enemies. Adding to the mix for the spycraft lover, there are sections on capturing criminals, performing night raids, making secret codes and signs, and even techniques for predicting the weather and using an esoteric Buddhist system of divination. An exciting and engaging tome of lost knowledge, The Book of the Ninja is the final say in the world of the ninja and the ultimate classic for samurai and ninja enthusiasts alike.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! The ninja were the true embodiment of budo, the warrior spirit. Rather than using techniques of assassination to protect themselves, ninja relied on their senses, and on an acute awareness of their natural surroundings, In fact, ninja avoided unnecessary conflict, and used weapons such as knives and swords only as a last resort. These are the true techniques of ninjutsu, and the art in which the ninja unrelentingly trained. In The Complete Ninja: The Secret World Revealed, Masaaki Hatsumi, the world's most renowned ninja grandmaster and top budo master, creates a companion volume to his bestselling The Way of the Ninja.

The Complete Ninja will help readers sharpen their perceptions and deepen their understanding of two core principles: that ninjutsu is the very backbone of the martial arts, and that it clarifies their essential spiritual significance. Since budo transcends any one particular martial tradition, all practitioners, whether they study judo, aikido, karate, kendo, kenjutsu, jujutsu, or other combative sports, will find the book fascinating and enlightening.

"The Essence of Ninjutsu." 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 periodWith 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. First time in English.All original illustrations included.Fourth Edition.

Someone is performing a bastardized version of the Black Mass in San Antonio, Texas where Catholic Nuns are sadistically tortured, and slain. A scrupulous attorney hires an elite private investigator, Frank McLaughlin, to investigate on behalf of an anonymous client. Frank elicits the help of a White Witch, Fiona and they quickly fall in love. Time and time again, Frank's resolve is tested as he is torn between logic, duty and his own undefined faith. The police are baffled as the Catholic Archbishop cries out for action while silently pointing an accusing finger at the World Church of Satan. Chief of Homicide, Norman Lenowski, has pulled out all stops to solve the murders by creating a special task force called "Operation Madness." Fearing a cataclysmic showdown with the Catholic hierarchy, the World Church of Satan, headed by Lord Nicholas Stonefire, launches its own investigation into the serial murders. The Catholic Papacy unleashes their ultimate troubleshooter, an Assassini. The carnage continues while all efforts cross and collide until the shocking end. There is ample fodder here for all conspiracy theorists.

Morihei Ueshiba envisioned a style that could be both non-aggressive and still effective in a multitude of self-defense situations. From that vision came the art of aikido. As a student, you will be taught to respect the body of your opponent. The techniques should never cause permanent damage. The pain you inflict will be momentary. The aikido student is taught to search for eternal harmony. But this training has no end, for aikidoists believe perfection of character is never complete.
