Críticas:

""The Spirit of the Sword "was a great joy for me to read; I now have the immense satisfaction of finally understanding Nakamura Taisaburo's thoughts on swordsmanship. Gavin J. Poffley has done a masterful job of accurately translating Nakamura sensei's philosophy, technical explanations, and anecdotes, capturing the nuances and subtlety of his instruction; it is a beautiful and captivating book that should be on the shelf of everyone who is interested in practical swordsmanship."--Guy Power, Renshi seventh dan, Okuden Menjo and Densho, Nakamura Ryu

"Finally, some insight into Japanese swordsmanship from a truly original source! Powerfully written and authentic, "The Spirit of the Sword" is a book that can be read every year for deeper meaning."--Bob Elder, seventh dan, Zen Nihon Toyama Ryu Iai Do Renmei

"The same power and directness that made his swordsmanship luminous shines through this text--the fruits of a natural genius, forged in the heat of battle and further refined through decades of intense investigation. Nakamura sensei's commitment to swordsmanship was born from the knowledge that his superior skills had saved him three times from postings that had cost the lives of fellow instructors. This book was written in their honor and in the hope that future generations might stay true to the principles of combat that keep these arts truly martial."--John Maki Evans, seventh dan Nakamura Ryu; author of "Kurikara: The Sword and the Serpent"

Reseña del editor:

Nakamura Taisaburo's landmark book on the art of the sword includes technical information, thoughtful analysis, and fascinating recollections of his own training and teaching. One of the most famous Japanese swordsmen of the twentieth century, Nakamura sensei is widely acknowledged as the preeminent reinvigorator of the practice of tameshigiri (test cutting) as a test of technical and spiritual mastery. The Spirit of the Sword--first published in Japanese in 1980, now translated into English for the first time--is regarded by many as the most complete of Nakamura's writings on Japanese swordsmanship. Here Nakamura instructs the reader on the integration of iaido, kendo, and tameshigiri; the correct mental approach to sword practice; training methods; numerous kata or forms; a guide to sword maintenance; and historical notes on the use of the sword as a weapon. Illustrated with over 800 original photographs, this book is a must-have for any student of the Japanese sword and an excellent resource for sword enthusiasts in general.
