Hey Lads,

I'm in search of a togakure ryu book "feet of cats".
I'm not sure if this is the exact title or that the book is Japanese only. I thought it was correct but i cant find it no where so thats why i ask here.

I hope someone can shine some light on this.

Thanks in advance!,

Steven Ramaker

I have never heard of anything resembling this. Is it by someone in the Bujinkan? What language is it written in?

Likewise, I've never heard of this book. However, it sounds like the original poster might be referring to Neko no Myojutsu, a classic text on swordsmanship written by Issai Chozen in 1727.

The name means something like the mysterious skills of the cat, and it's possible the original poster meant to type 'Feats of Cats,' rather than 'Feet of Cats'

I've heard Hatsumi Sensei mention Neko no Myojutsu at least once and I think he references it in one of his books - at least that's probably where I first came across it.

If you google for it, there are translations online but to the best of my knowledge, it's got nothing to do with Togakure Ryu.
