Steffen Gjerding Kakudokan dojo Yup, lousy english. Originally Posted by BudoYama. Warrior Tradition in paperback: If you have any koryu interest at all and don’t have this book yet, I strongly recommend it.
I’m not a Katori practitioner, but I have gained a great deal from the book. There wafrior a wealth of information on the history of the school as well as fascinating sections on the school’s esoteric teachings.
There is even a section which briefly discusses the ninjutsu teachings passed down within the school. The book can also boast a number of excellent photographs, including training photographs of Don Draeger. There are also illustrations showing the targets on an armored opponent, pictures of Katori densho, numerous photographs of the Katori shrine, and photographic illustrations ,atori the kata.
These photos are not perfect; I really wish that the book had more color photos, and I have seen much better photos of the Katori kata in other books see Nihon Kenjutsuvol. I, available from Futago Trader.
However, the photos that you find in this book you just won’t find anywhere else. On the whole, as glimpse into the teachings, the philosophy, and the history of a koryu, this book stands head and shoulders above almost anything else available in English. Warrior Traditions is my favorite of the two.
This is a really unique glimpse into koryu history for those of us who have limited skills in the Japanese language, and it is truly remarkable that Otake Sensei has made so much about his school available for those of us with a historical interest in the subject. I highly recommend this book, and now that it is in paperback there is much less of an excuse not to buy it.
