More > development and introduction of these weapons to the islands and how they affected the culture through the ages. The 'standard five' popular weapons of the modern era (bo, sai, tonfa, nunchaku & kama) are described in detail with many scale drawings, but surprisingly, it clearly shows the influence of bladed weapons, such as the curved sword.

Most surprising is the contextual detail of the historic eras, such as the affects of the Satsuma Invasion of the Ryukyu Islands in 1609 & the dissolution of the monarchy in 1879. Contrary to popular myth, between these years Okinawans did not adopt farmers tools for self protection, for quite a different history is revealed herein.< Less

eBook (PDF): $9.11
This work has been published to enhance an Okinawan cultural asset that can help to advance individual development and creativity. "The book," the author states, "is not intended to be... More > a beautification of brutality, or a glorification of the misdeeds of an ancient and evil epoch, when the sword ruled supreme. These distorted, negative images associated with the martial arts are a gory remnant of a withered time, the skeletal remains of a diseased nightmare that should be buried forever and left alone to decay in peace - although a means to an end they might well have been.
