Master the Japanese martial art of ninjutsu with this illustrated, informative guide.

In The Ninja Defense, the classic art of the ninja is updated for maximum effectiveness in modern day situations. Stephen K. Hayes is a Black Belt Hall of Fame member, founder of To-Shin Do, and acknowledged "Father of American Ninjutsu." He has distilled and refined the knowledge he has built studying and teaching ninjutsu for decades into a comprehensive self-defense system that can defuse the worst situations the modern world has to offer.

The result is a realistic martial arts training system that includes instruction in techniques and strategies for dealing with:
  • Grappling, Throwing, Choking, and Joint-locking
  • Striking, Kicking, and Punching
  • Stick, Blade, Cord, and Projectile weapons
  • Handling multiple assailants and Surprise attacks
  • Overcoming psychological intimidation or Bullying
This ninja book, which includes a bonus DVD, focuses on Hayes' revised take on the classical martial arts styles of Japan's famed shinobi. He provides his readers with all the key ingredients—both physical and mental—to emerge safely from unexpected danger. The chapter on mental discipline will allow readers to feel more confident in whatever situation everyday life brings.

The Ninja Defense contains extremely practical techniques that the author honed while serving as a bodyguard for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and fine-tuned through years of teaching. It is the ultimate self-defense book from a true martial art master.

"The contribution regarding the philosophy of martial art and what To Shin Do represents teaching which I feel has great value. The first six chapters as well as the last chapter were of particular interest to me as my own passion as an instructor and practitioner of martial arts always asks the questions on how to explain the mental aspects. Hayes and his editors I feel have done this very effectively, using relative and easy to understand terms with realistic but hypothetical situations to increase the readers understanding of these terms for practical use and further reflection." —Cyril Jackson, White Cat Publications

"The Ninja Defense shares a holistic approach to what martial arts training can encompass…This provides a great resource for modern people seeking simple solutions to violence…Overall, The Ninja Defense carries many ideas and tactics that are good for the masses: non-martial artists, beginner students, and advanced practitioners wishing to delve into a different martial art approach." Martial Journal
