Fujimoto, Kiyomi, Calligraphy. Fine. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. B/W Photographs by author. Unpaginated. Author apprenticed under Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi, the 34th generation grandmaster of the Togakure family tradition of ninjutsu, the 900 yr old art of the ninja shadow warriors of Japan and became the 1st westerner in the history of the Togakure ninja clan to be awarded the title of Shidoshi, or "teacher of the warrior ways of enlightenment." The author's original verses and photography provide an intriguing look into the motivation, philosophy and understanding of the feudal Japanese practitioners of the mystical art known as ninjutsu. Based on the cryptic maki-mono scrolls of history and secrets possessed by every ninja family and expanded generation by generation with newly discovered truths revealed by evolving society, this book offers timely guidance for approaching self-awareness and the comforting realization that the seemingly confusing events of daily life are but mere reflections of the all-pervading order of the universe.
