Kyudo within the nine schools

Hi guys, Here's something I find interesting and I think rarely discussed.

Where in the nine schools can one find kyujutsu techniques? Before the Portuguese introduced firearms to Japan the bow was the long range weapon used by everyone. Arguably it was also the first weapon in the kobudo arsenal to become obsolete with the arrival of firearm technology. And so it went the way of becoming practiced for ones spiritual refinement and less for battle even by samurai during the waring states period much the way kendo, aikido, judo etc. are practiced today, "to refine ones spirit" but not really a means to do battle with.

Sensei shows what I would imagine to be Togakure Ryu bow and arrow stuff (but just briefly) in Ninjutsu History and Tradition on page 148-150 and it even shows a detail from a densho with a ninja firing a bow from atop a running boar.

It could be that the shihan in the photo shooting a bow in ichimonji no kamae is Someya sensei but I'm not sure.

I have explored the world of kyudo here in new york at a place called Toko Kyudojo and find kyudo interesting but I want to know more about this aspect within our nine schools.

I would imagine Kukishinden, Togakure, Shinden Fudo Ryu and some of the others would all have techniques for yumi and ya within their densho. Can anyone here share any input or point out a Japanese shihan with exposure to this?

Thanks everyone! Ganbate!!

Thanks Benkyoka, i do remember the book was in English. It sounds like (from this title) the book your suggesting might be in Japanese. I might be wrong as I don't know the book.

It deffinately had this drawing of ninja hiding inside a fake cow and thats how it stood out in my head.

Does anyone know of a copy of this book or an ISBN number? I would so appreciate it !

Skuggvarg,

Thanks for replying. I'm not sure if thats it but it might be. I would know if I saw the cover. Any idea where I might find it?

Cheers!

Hi everyone,

Akimashita omedeto gozaimasu!!

A few years ago I happened to be at the Japanese book store in NYC called Kinokuniya and a ran across a book by Hatsumi sensei that I'd never seen before or since. It was a book on ninjutsu geared towards children with a more whimsical depiction of ninjutsu than I was accustomed to. In it I remember seeing an illustration where ninja where hiding in a fake cow a la Trojen horse! The drawing showed the cow and it had a cut out showing the inside of the decoy. I didnt buy it at the time but now that my 5 year old daughter wants to be a "ninja when she grows up" I would love to get my hands on a copy.

Does anyone here recall seeing this book or know its name? Any information would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

I too will miss his presence in the Bujinkan. Soke must be sad indeed to loose one of his very oldest students. Oguri sensei took many secrets and knowledge with him, I'm sure. As far as I know this is the first shihan to pass away. I hope he has found serenity and peace where he is now.

Honestly, I have not heard anything in motion as yet for the reprinting of this. I don't think we will see this available in Spring. To be honest yet again, lots of books are supposed to be "reprinted" in the Bujinkan but I'm stiill waiting for Tetsuzan, Sanmyaku, and the list goes on. -- BTW, DOES anyone have a complete set of Sanmyaku for sale? (Might consider a trade with you). Ben, I'm sure will get it reprinted,... eventually. I'll be there to support him when he does. It will get reprinted when it gets reprinted. Until then this is the only copy available right now and as time goes on these books all get harder to find.

I've been at a couple of shihan's dojos in Japan and have seen there collections of a bunch of out-of-print books of Soke's (A nice big hardcover one in Japanese comes to mind - can't remember the title) and drooled over the thought of owning them too, so I know how it is.

As it is there just a few hours left till this one goes. Thanks to those who have been interested.

Minasan, gambatte!!

Hello all,

I have THE LAST AND FINAL COPY, unopened and totally mint of Understand? Good. Play! posted on eBay. The seven day auction started last night 1/2/8 at 10PM EST. -- I HAVE NO MORE COPIES AFTER THIS IS SOLD!

As you may already know, I took many of the photographs of Soke and Nagato sensei that appear in the book. That was at the Atlanta Taikai in 2000. It was my first time meeting with them and I'll never forget it. Since then I have photographed Soke and the shihan many times and plan to publish a book of my photos in the future.

To answer Jaime's post (was that removed or am I missing something?) It's NOT available on Amazon or anyplace else that I know of. Around the time that I posted the one before this Amazon did have a used copy that has since sold (not one of mine) for well over $300.

The previous bidders have received their copy's and are very pleased with them.

Please view and bid on this last copy HERE.



Thanks for looking.

Enjoy, all!
