Editorial Reviews

Dr. Zoughari's visionary work connects old ways with the new, breathing life and new meaning into an often controversial subject in a way that benefits all who will read these pages." -Shihan Christopher Davy, from his Foreword"His translation of Takamatsu's autobiography, albeit short, was powerful to me? The art shown in the book is beautiful and adds context to the text." - MartialArtsPlanet.com blog"This insightful book is filled with obscure and documented details about Ninjutsu, as well as Dr. Zoughari's thoughts and fascinating analysis on the subject. The later chapters, of the secrets texts of Ninjutsu were fascinating. For me, understanding how these warriors fit into the Japanese warfare model was an enlightening read. This book is for both history and martial arts lovers alike." -Zohar Laor, Man of la Book blog"
