Taira Shinken is considered by most to be the Gichin Fuankoshi of
Okinawan Kobudo as it we he who preserved the forms that he learned from
his teacher Yabiku Moden.
The book also features the master himself performing many of these
traditional forms including bo, sai, tongfa and nunchaku. The book also
has rare photos of some of Okinawa's top masters, including Higo Seiko,
Matayoshi Shimpo and Akamine Etsuke. The text was translated by Eihachi
Ota, himself a kobudo master and student of the late Nagamine Shoshin
who was also a student of Taira Shinken's.
This book is a collection of analogues, weapons and line drawings
presented in an easy to learn format.
