Anshu Christa Jacobson – Book Review – Shoninki – “Original Japanese Text”
This is a book review of the title “SHONINKI – Original Japanese Text“. This is one of the most prominent historical text that we have left from the feudal era of Japan.
The Shoninki was written by Natori Masatake of the Kishu-ryu school of ninjutsu. Although the text is not very long, it reflects a certain way of thinking about ninjutsu, which is most interesting to anyone who wishes to learn more than just techniques. It is also important to keep in mind that the text was written for a selected contemporary audience. Without commentary and interpretation of the text, much would be lost. Therefore, a great translation is needed to understand the depth of the shoninki and the teachings of the kishu ryu school of ninjutsu.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK – TRUE PATH OF THE NINJA FOR ANY REAL SERIOUS NINJUTSU PRACTITIONER.
Take Care, Be Safe &
Good Luck in your Journey of Budo.
