|Description||This informative martial arts book, Ninja Weapons introduces the exciting and deadly secrets of ninjutsu--the chain and the shuriken. The Masaki school of chain fighting was developed in the feudal society of the early eighteenth century by a swordsman-sentry in Edo (Tokyo) Castle. Feeling that the shedding of blood in such a hallowed place would be disgraceful, he devised the combat use of the weighted chain. Even the name he gave to the art proves the trust he placed in its effectiveness--manrikigusari (chain with the power of ten thousand). The equally devastating art of shuriken, the throwing of metal stars and spikes, evolved shortly after manrikigusari. The easily concealed shuriken soon became kwn as an extremely effective weapon for both shibi and samurai warriors. Included are The Samurai Creed, various techniques, the history of the arts and over 100 black and white photos and illustrations.|
