That being said - I have no problem with that lack of "clarity" anyway. It's not a good idea to teach martial arts from books - they should be taught by a qualified and experienced instructor. This comment is especially true for martial arts associated with weapons - where considerable damage can be done if techniques are not applied correctly, or if students are misguided. No martial arts instructor wants to see their students go off and become "assassins" for hire. At least ... no instructor that espouses higher goals wants to do this.
I would also add that some techniques shown in the book push the boundaries of credibility. Can an unarmed Ninja really face - and disarm - multiple swordsmen ... while being unarmed himself? Really??? I would be highly skeptical - your chances of getting cut to pieces are enormously high. Still, I always try to keep an open mind - and if any of the Ninjutsu practitioners are that good - I regret not seeing it in person just one time in my life :-) But in other words - be very careful believeing too much in all the ideas shown in this book.
So let's get to the important stuff. What is clear is that Masaaki Hatsumi is a deeply spiritual person. It is the opening pages of his book that really spell out the guiding philosophy for his own approach to the martial arts. And what emerges is a very fine picture of a man who has dedicated himself to a great and noble purpose. That is his ultimate accomplishment with this book - and that's why it's worth having on your bookshelf!
