    While this book offers a comprehensive and thorough explanation of how to use sticks for joint-locking, they all seem to require a highly compliant partner. It's a good book, but I question its practical value.

    A solid read with clear instructions. I just wish there was more.

    The authors discuss the basic moves of Japanese stick fighting in a simple, well-illustrated work. I might add that I do not believe that arts such as this one is entirely learnable from a book alone. This book should be used as a guide for one involved in active practice, teaching, or for one, like myself, wanting to learn more about a particular martial art. It is easy to read and short. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    Mostly a picture book illustrating tons of techniques using the hanbo (half staff, commonly 3 feet long). I do wish there was more written content in this book, and though the back flap labels these techniques as coming from the Kukishinden-ryu, it doesn't seem to be the case; I honestly don't know where they're coming from.

    one of the better published books on bojutsu. good selection of throws from different angles, and sequences that build off of each other nicely.
