This series of three volumes on bujutsu and budo is recognized as the most authorative survey of the arts in existence. Throughout the martial arts and books that have been written on them, you will engage the name of Donn F. Draeger as being the foremost western exponent of (many) of these arts. This is one of those series absolutely no practioner of the Japanese martial arts can do without. Read it ten times and every time you'll discover something new, and/or will suddenly be struck by an insight you did not have before. This volume is about 'Bujutsu'. Evolved amid the incessant warfare of medieval Japan, bujutsu, or ''martial arts'', provided the warrior with the technical and psychological training that prepared him to use his weapons in actual combat. Classical bujutsu emphasizes the intensely practical nature of these martial arts. The author describes sixteen major forms of bujutsu, employing a variety of weapons and techniques. The late Donn F. Draeger, U.S. Marine Corps officer and a historian of martial arts disciplines and licensed and recognized in Japan as a teacher of numerous martial arts, is internationally recognized as one of the world's leading experts on the subject. He lived in Japan, China, Mongolia, Korea, Malaysia and Indonesia. He was technical director of the magazine 'Martial Arts International' and he has authored and co-authored numerous books on martial arts. His books virtually all have become standard works. Draeger also has served as the director of the International Martial Culture Research Center, Tokyo. He died in 1982. 1.
