SEPTEMBER 15th, 2019
This is announcement of a new book coming out in September.
Here’s the information:
Title: Ninja: Secretes of the Unsurpassable Heart
Author: Teruhisa Komori
Publisher: One Peace Books (August 14, 2019)
Publication Date: August 14th, 2019
It is a unique book that not only gives a genuine overview about the origins, activities, and techniques of the ninja (aka shinobi, spies during the warring periods in Japan), but incorporates Mr. Komori’s research on their physical, mental and spiritual fortitude and how they were able to succeed in their missions. The studies conducted give many hints on how these traits of the ninja can also benefit people in today’s technologically & socially-driven societies in terms of dealing with stress and issues that arise through it.
Originally a book published in Japanese, Curtis Abu (founder of Chikushin Martial & Cultural Training Group) was recruited to translate the English version.
This book will be available through your typical retail bookstores and online stores. For those looking for a more analytical and detailed look into what made the ninja who they were and the methods they used to do so, pick it up and give it a good read!
JUNE 25th 2019
A small event promoting the kobudō we study was held on this day. The theme was about the importance of kamae (posture) as a kihon (basic component) in classical martial arts, and how kamae supports all of our movements. A few guests participated and did a great job in the training exercises prepared for the event. I want to give a big thank you to those guests for the excellent experience!
