The Second edition v3.1 (Released July 2018) IS OUT NOW!

It is also available as coil bound to make it more practical to use in the dojo. In the future there will also be a luxury version with full colour on all pages and hard cover for real hard core collectors.

I found these errors, and made these changes to the new edition.


Errata for the First edition v3.0 (Released May 2018)

    • p.42 JŪMONJI … Move the right foot back to Kōsei no kamae. Zanshin.
      (I forgot why I wrote Hōi no kamae, couldn’t find the source so I changed back to Kōsei)
    • p.49 TAIHENJUTSU MUTŌDORI got the wrong kanji, it should be 体変術無刀捕型
    • p.79 OMOTE. With your left thumb and ring finger… Grab his left Hoshizawa with the right hand…
    • p.81 URA. (Not wrong, but I switched left to right so it matches the picture).
    • p.83 MUSŌ-DORI …His left wrist is trapped with your left arm, the left Shutō is covering his elbow,
    • p.92 YUME NO MAKURA. (Not wrong, but I switched left to right so it matches the picture).
    • p.105 RYŌTE. (Not wrong, but I switched left to right so it matches the picture).
    • p.145 ŌKYO. Should be a left Shitō-ken.
    • p.162 YŪDANSHA. I got the wrong kanji, it should be 雄段者
 which means Man, male or husband. In this context I would say all grown up black belt.

Please write a review what you think about the book, I really appreciate that! Thank’s Norman for your kind words.

Too Bad For You! Or Not.

As my friend Eric Jones would put it: “Too bad for you! Or Not”

Only 100 out of the half million Bujinkan members will have the privilege to attend the 15th edition of the Paris Taikai that will open its door on July 13th at the Bujinkan France Headquarters, in Vincennes (Paris).

Too bad for you! Or Not.

Sveneric, Peter, and Arnaud are real “Jurassic Bujinkan Ninja”.

Totalling some 112 years of training altogether, more than 120 trips to Japan, around 200 Taikai participations, and 12 Taikai Organization for Hatsumi Sensei, their knowledge go back to the beginning of Bujinkan times.

 

Too bad for you! Or Not.
