Martial arts practitioner and scholar Donn F. Draeger described ninjutsu as “the Art of Protection Against Danger.” If protecting against all danger is your art, the principal weapons in... More > your arsenal become foresight, awareness, a well-honed intuition and a studied insight into your fellow man. These are the same weapons that Baltasar Gracian developed, advocated, and utilized in Spain against the brightest thinkers of his day. Prudence, circumspection, sagacity, discipline, and all the other attributes that Gracián encourages his reader to demonstrate are the selfsame attributes required of the ninja. The purpose of this small book is to introduce the ninjutsu practitioner—and the interested reader in general—to the tenets of Baltasar Gracián and to the wisdom contained his writings. Much has already been written about Gracián, but what is relevant to us is that he was a Spanish Jesuit Priest in the 17th century, a philosopher, and, in his own way, a master in the practice of the shinobi ways.< Less

GHOST WRITING: The Tactical Pen in Personal Protection By James Loriega
Paperback: $12.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Tactical Pen is neither a Kubotan nor a yawara stick, as most “experts” would have you believe. The fact that it can function as such is certainly beneficial, but believing that's all... More > it is can be very limiting. The current iterations of tactical pens are legitimate writing instruments that can also be employed as practical but (generally) legal implements of personal protection. They represent a viable option for anyone who wants to enhance their ability to defend themselves without resorting to actual weapons or enrolling in long-term dojo training. There's actually nothing “tactical” about these pens: they can't fight for you, can't escort you to safety, or can't even call the police. They simply replace your hand in delivering your defensive blows. But then, that's all you actually need.< Less

The innumerable sailors, seafarers, soldiers, explorers, and other edged weapons users who traversed Seville throughout the 16th and 17th centuries made their unique martial contributions to the... More > unnamed but growing body of navaja techniques. In time, the regional techniques for using the knife came to be informally known to as Acero Sevillano (in English, Sevillian Steel) and the navajas carried specifically for fighting were called sevillanas. Since that time, the navaja has been carried and used by the rich and not-so-rich people from the cities and villages, in times of feast and famine. Its design was influenced by Moslems, used by Christians, and crafted by Jews. It was a weapon that was considered indispensable by both thugs and aristocrats, and that was equally popular with both Spaniards and gypsies. It crossed the hands—and also drew the blood—of countless people, both in and out of its native Spain. Paperback Edition< Less
