Hello all,

Just to let you Ryukyu Kobudo buffs know, one of my mentors in the Ryukyu martial arts, Murakami Katsumi Sensei, has just released his first English book, entitled "Saijutsu : Traditional Okinawan Weapon Art" through Tuttle.

Having been fortunate enough to have been privy to the original manuscript, I can tell you that this is a great book, and one that
should be owned by any and all Okinawan martial arts enthusiasts.

You can find it by doing a title search under "Saijutsu" here: http://www.amazon.com

Yours in Karatedo,

Joe Swift
