About the Author:

Jack Hoban--a former marine corps captain and one of the acknowledged "founding fathers" of Ninjutsu in America--reveals the core physical techniques of this mysterious and often misunderstood art. Hoban, who received Ninjutsu training from Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi in Japan, is a long-time practitioner of the martial arts. Now a Shidoshi (senior instructor), Hoban is an ideal instructor to teach Ninjutsu to new and experienced Ninjutsu practitioners, alike.

Review:

An excellent description of authentic ninja philosophy. I am currently a student of the Bujinkan (the organization with which the author is affiliated), and this book was my first look at the philosophy put forth in ninjutsu. As opposed to the "icy black hand of cruel death" nonsense found in many publications and movies, Ninpo presents genuine ninja ethics, which are based on the principle that the warrior is motivated by love and a desire to protect life (especially the lives of loved ones). Jack's book presents a philosophy of life which everyone interested in warrior ethics, or simply in the mysterious art of being a good person, should read. -- Book Review
