Classical Fighting Arts Of Japan
A Complete Guide to Koryu Jujustsu
By Serge Mol

FKI-BS-2090

Out of Print
Rare

This is an historical masterpiece – the first English language guide and historical outline of traditional jujutsu and its close-quarter fighting methods used on the battlefield as well as in daily life. The classical martial arts practiced in pre-modern era schools (rhyuha, or traditions) were deeply interwoven. For this reason this text is invaluable not only to practitioners of modern and traditional jujutsu, but also of interest to enthusiasts of modern budo such as judo, aikido, kendo and iaido. The author not only details individual jujutsu traditions and history, including photos and illustrations where possible, but he also explores the historical and cultural factors that helped shape them.
