This is a book about life as a foreigner in Japan. Japanese culture is examined in detail. This book is also about finding and training in the long thought-to-be extinct military arts known as Koka and Iga Ninjutsu.

This is a book about life as a foreigner in Japan.

Ninjutsu is arguably one of the most controversial topics in the martial arts world. There are numerous organizations teaching Ninjutsu worldwide. Some claim to teach traditional Ninjutsu while others teach a modern interpretation of the art. These two scenarios are not uncommon. It is almost impossible to authenticate traditional Ninjutsu claims while the modern styles are a new interpretation of the past

Author Daniel DiMarzio unknowingly stumbled upon just that while living and working in Japan. For the first time in English, with the permission of his teacher, he brought this Ninjutsu organization to the Western world by publishing this book in 2008

Author Daniel DiMarzio unknowingly stumbled upon just that while living and working in Japan. For the first time in English, with the permission of his teacher, he brought this Ninjutsu organization to the Western world by publishing this book in 2008. Daniel pulled back the veil on Ban Family Ninjutsu, an organization lead by the head of the family Jinichi Kawakami and instructor Yasushi Kiyomoto. This republished book describes an adventure of living and working in Japan while accidentally coming across a reclusive Ninjutsu organization that chose to remain in the shadows for ages.

Very personal story about living in Japan, owning a business there, and training in Ninjutsu. The author is the only person ever given permission to write in detail publicly about Banke Shinobinoden Ninjutsu (Koka and Iga Ninjutsu), He writes about conversations with the last Ninjutsu Master teaching this art, Yasushi Kiyomoto and his retired teacher Jinichi Kawakami. or only gives what he was given permission to tell

This book focuses on the authors experience learning authentic ninjutsu from a master. Really interesting book about Japan.

This book focuses on the authors experience learning authentic ninjutsu from a master. I would have liked more indepth information on the training methods and more specific details and photos. It is not a bad book but it left me wanting more information.

This book is also about finding a long t military art known as Koka Ninjutsu. This art and the group carrying on the tradition, Banke Shinobinoden have remained underground for almost 1,000 years. Banke Shinobinoden has remained virtually unknown to the outside world. It is almost impossible to authenticate traditional Ninjutsu claims while the modern styles are a new interpretation of the past

what the heck is this? i feel like this is a con this shouldnt be the first american book on the banke !!!

a few pages of big bold typed stuff a grade school kid could read ???

i dont know if they would understand...i have seen many pictures recenty of mr dimarzo as kawakamis "american" goto guy in japan...

so why or better yet where is the meat of this story??? you know way more than whats in this book this book is a scam considering you know way more than whats written i think this is a bad attempt for a first book you know more reddem your self release the new book now that well too put it str8 have become kawakamis skhayes...cuz its obvious your training with much more than his student...you can bring this stuff over here an have the power..do it.

i dont mind learning these arts thro secondary even thrid hand people but i think keeping this to your self is selfish. and honestly i bought this for the banke shinobiden content not to hear about your woman and there family and the kids you teach which hey i wouldnt mind honnestly or anyone else prolly for the matter,...if you some dam meat with the potatoes. you can set the reocrd str8 on the banke shinobi den do it!!!!
you dam sure have rank in it now!

Very personal story about living in Japan, owning a business there, and training in Ninjutsu. The author is the only person ever given permission to write in detail publicly about Banke Shinobinoden Ninjutsu (Koka and Iga Ninjutsu), He writes about conversations with the last Ninjutsu Master teaching this art, Yasushi Kiyomoto and his retired teacher Jinichi Kawakami. The section about Ninjutsu is very interesting but the author only seems to give a taste of what he actually knows...or only gives what he was given permission to tell. It definitely leaves you wanting more...which was probably on purpose (this art is kept very secret, only a few have trained in it even in Japan). The information about running a business in Japan too was interesting.

Also, National Geographic and Smithsonian Channel released a documentary "Ninja: Shadow Warriors" featuring Banke Shinobinoden Ninjutsu that was very interesting.

The information in it is good. It is written as a voyage diary. The only bad comment I have is only about the format of the book. If this would have been bounded like any normal book, it would be 4x smaller, making it easier to carry...

But this give an interesting view in the Koka claims. I would say a must for anyone seriously interested in Ninjutsu, but not the first book to purchase...

This book was horribly done, and doesn't answer any questions. It was like a bad school report.

I do not agree with some of the author's opinions within this book, but I enjoyed the book very much. A very quick read, less then an hour, but very engrossing. Some people are complaining that it does not explain much, well duh! Its about Ninjutsu, what do you want all the secrets revealed, and the magic scrolls handed to you. It wouldnt help you, even if it did. Reading this book really proves the Law of Attraction works. It is a great example of the book "The Secret" explains in manifesting your thoughts into reality. The title is very appropriate, because it says finding the lost art, not revealing it. So I dont know what people were reading into the title and expecting they were entitled to the secrets of Koga (Kouka) Ryu Ninjutsu.

This book was not what you would expect to get after the title. it had some interesting information about moving to japan but other than that it was not a good read. first the book is short(i read it in less than an hour) and tells you nothing about koka ninjutsu, just that he unexpectedly found the banke shinobi no den and the training was difficult. maybe next time he writes a paper he should go more in depth on the main topic of the book. all in all its not worth the 15 dollars. keep it and buy dr suess.

I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting. This tells what it is like to live in modern 21st century Japan, and learn Koga Ryu Ninjutsu from a true Ninja. Excellent point of view. A must have for any Ninja buff.
