BOWIE: The Man, The Blade, The Method By James Loriega
Hardcover: $24.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
In a nation that has designed and created many of the world's scientific and sophisticated mechanisms of war, the Bowie knife will always be regarded as the quintessential American weapon. Despite... More > the home-grown provenance of such modern engines of destruction as the H-Bomb, ICBMs, and unmanned drones, the centuries-old Bowie knife typifies America's warrior ethic. In the fierce and formidable blade of the Bowie knife is captured the merging of civilized society with the wild frontier, and of the westward march of history that drew many of us here in the first place. The Bowie knife represented the way early 19th century Americans thought of themselves: simple and uncomplicated, yet rugged, hard working, self-sufficient, and capable of overcoming any obstacles that stood to hinder or hamper their essential individualism. And while it may at times seem that some 21st century Americans have lost those attributes, this modest work was written with the rest in mind.< Less

SHINOBI-NO-MICHI HC By James Loriega

Most “ninjutsu” practitioners will accurately describe their training as the Art of Espionage and Intelligence gathering—yet they still confine their practice of... More > “ninjutsu” to the Taijutsu techniques performed in the dojo. Practitioners seek to prove their ninja knowledge by practicing “situational awareness” and “reading their potential opponent;” yet they fail to demonstrate the slighest inkling of how such things are done within the context of ninjutsu. Despite the proud “legitimacy” that all practitioners like to boast of, the bulk of their “ninjutsu” training today sadly takes place on a mat within the safety of their dojo. And despite their fierce denials, their ninjutsu is merely Taijutsu. This book will provide readers with a brief but detailed over-view of traditional ninjutsu, lending perspective to its lesser-emphasized aspects: Shinrigaku; Haragei; Metsuke; Ninso; Satsujinjutsu, and many other methods apparently unknown to high-ranking Shidoshi and Shihan instructors.< Less
