In "Classical Budo", legendary martial artist Donn Draeger illuminates the history and evolution of these modern arts, including kendo, judo, kempo, kyudo, iaido, and jujutsu and puts them into historical perspective. The book includes fascinating artwork from classical sources, and archival photos of budo arts masters in action.
