Tadashige Watanabe, «Shinkage-Ryu Sword Techniques»
Traditional Japanese Martial Arts | ISBN 0870408879 | Japan Publications (USA) (April 1993) | JPG| 61 Mb | 269 Pages
''Although this book lacks indepth technical instruction, the hundreds of photos allow the moderatly experienced swordsman, no matter the style, to gain an insight into the technique, practice and application of each kata (form). Although the novice might find this a bit confusing, with a little patience and a lot of practice the "way" will soon begin to become more clear. As mentioned previously, this book is a first for Shinkage Ryu swordsmanship, and to anyone with knowledge of the Japanese culture, the lack of written detail is not surprising. There are, perhaps, those who opposed the release of this manual, but thanks to Tadashige Watanabe's diligent effort, this traditional and secret warrior method can now be glimpsed by all.
A must for any martial arts library.''
