Classical Budo by Donn F. Draeger

Book Description

Modern forms of budo, or martial ways practiced primarily for spiritual development, developed from established combat systems in response to social, political, historical, and philosophical influences that occurred during the Edo Period (1615-1868). 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.
