Truly an enigma within the realm of martial arts instructional literature is the evolution of the BUBISHI. While few of the scores who have plagiarized from this great book over the decades give it credit from its English translation, this is the original Bubishi. It is in-depth, factual and totally complete. Some of the drawings contained here have actually been stolen as well, and inserted into a number of unauthorized versions of this monumental book. Still, much has been left out in those replicas. This publication, so long-standing that it has lost notation of the original author, pays true allegiance to the original writings and illustrations of the Bubishi, and is a must read for all students of the Japanese martial arts.
