We were working on revising Secrets of the Ninja when the publishers decided to have a go at releasing theirs. Say what you will about Ashida Kim, but I enjoyed reading this book (and others) as a kid in the 1980s. Report as inappropriate. Their book has 153 pages and 199 photographs. Ours is 235 pages with more than 250 photographs of Ashida Kim in action, some never before seen.

BACK IN PRINT!! BIGGER AND BADDER THAN EVER! Ashida Kim is one of a handful of men in the world who have learned the true art of Ninjitsu, the Silent Way of stealth and assassination in feudal Japan. Initial attempts to bring these secrets to the public were met with stiff resistance due to the brutal nature and terrifying effectiveness of the techniques. Now, some thirty years later, it has become a martial art classic. The Ninja can fight or disappear. Looked for, cannot be seen, listened for, cannot be heard, felt for, cannot be touched. Now, you too can become a master of invisibility with the ability to penetrate anywhere unseen and vanish without leaving a trace. softcover, 236 pages, photos nad illustrations

Ashida Kim is a legend, this is an excellent overview for any interested in the art of ninjutsu.
Mr.jeka
This book contains some meditation techniques and breathing exercises which I found useful for relieving stress. The rest is mostly about Ninja techniques in espionage and fighting.

10 minutes on youtube or google tell more than this book could in 1000 readings. What a load of bovine feces... A total waist of money.

Author Radford Davis (who prefers the multicultural nom-de-plume Ashida Kim for PC reasons), is one of the fewer than 600 American men who, as teens, managed to find authentic secret ninja teachers here in the United States. Apparently during the late 1970's and '80's hundreds of Ninja from the Koga district of Japan flooded the United States to try out for parts in various ninja films and television programs. Hollywood being as cutthroat as it is (and was then, let me tell you!), most of these Ninja had to go out and take non-ninja jobs while waiting for calls from their agents which, sadly, never came. Imagine if you will the ninja fast-food worker, the ninja landscaper, the ninja janitor, the ninja waiter. It couldn't have been easy! Many of them had to overcome discrimination because of their preferred cultural mode of dress (ninja costume). A rather sad testiment to our modern so-called "inclusive" society, indeed!

Thankfully, a good number of these undocumented Ninja immigrants were able to find work as Secret Teachers to teenage boys in the United States, who they carefully groomed as their protegees. As with Radford Davis's Secret Teacher, they eventually disapeared when their youthful charge has mastered the elements of ninja-craft. In true ninja fashion, to date none of these Secret Teachers have left a trace, not a photograph, document or family member...no change of address on file with the post office. It's secret stuff this ninja business, I tell you! Many of the authentic Koga Ninja techniques in this book are artfully disguised as modern neo-kenpo, and much of the theory presented here is surprisingly in line with that presented in respected documentaries such as the "American Ninja" series. This in and of itself screams, "AUTHENTICITY!".

The author mixes in some kung fu mythology and modern kenpo techniques, along with some materials plageri--...er, borrowed from Stephen K Hayes ninja books (see Hayes 6 volume series). Davis/Kim doesn't seem to know much about the ~ACTUAL~ history of either Japan or Ninja, but if you enjoy seeing grown men dressed up as ninjas and striking stealthy poses in wide open spaces behind oblivious guard-sentry-dudes, this is the book for you!

It is not known what became of Radford Davis's teacher. ONLY 2 STARS because he's EXPOSED the ~SECRETS~ of the *NINJA*, which will undoubtedly impact the market (AGAIN) and put a whole lot of Koga Ninja out of work (*AGAIN*) and back behind the counter of venues as vaunted as Taco Bell and The Krusty Krab (move over Spongebob!). Who needs a secret teacher after all, when you can learn to be a ninja from a book?

Happy Stealthing! ;)
Now, I must admit that I was sucked into Ashida Kim's fantasy world where anyone who wants to be a ninja can. I purchased a number of his books before I knew better. I later burned them to be certain no on would be drawn in by those copies. I am now studying ninjutsu near my home. I first learned of his deception when my father, an ex-Army Ranger, picked up this book and commented "This looks like what they taught us in Ranger school." Turns out that all the moves in his books were either from published books on a variety of Special Forces techniques or from books on true ninjutsu published earlier. Also, Ashida Kim looks white. What does that mean? Japanese first name(Ashida), Korean last name(Kim) and an obviously white face. Hmmm, can you say imposter? I knew you could. Also, in the short time I have studied this art, I have learned some Japanese. Shouldn't a master be proficient in his art's native language? Duh! Ninjutsu is Japanese and there is a japanese name for every concept. Therefore, there is no need to use Chinese or Korean words; unless of course he didn't recieve training in something that you are required to know for advancement: basic martial philosophy and some Japanese so a technique can be express the way it was meant to. He tells nothing believable about himself, his background, or the lineage he professes to represent. I mean, are we this gullible, that we'll believe something because someone said they were telling the truth? If you want to learn about ninjutsu, get any books by Jack Hoban, Charles Daniels, Masaaki Hatsumi, Glenn J. Morris, or Stephen K. Hayes. Seek your truth through research, not someone else's through belief. May you find your objective and become better for it.
