About the Author

MASAYUKI SHIMABUKURO was the 21st Soshihan (headmaster) of Muso Jikiden Eishin-Ryu Iaijutsu and served as chairman of the Nippon Kobudo Jikishin-Kai. After his death in 2012, the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai posthumously inducted him into their Hall of Fame for his lifetime of contributions to the arts and people he loved. LEONARD PELLMAN is considered one of the leading authorities on a variety of Japanese and Okinawan budo. His fascination with iaijutsu began in 1973 and he started studying with Shimabukuro Hanshi in 1989. Pellman heads the Seishin-Kan, a member dojo of the Kokusai Nippon Budo Kai, in San Antonio, Texas.


"This memorial edition of Flashing Steel is the premier guide to Muso Jikiden Eishin-ryu. It is dedicated to Hanshi Masayuki Hidenobu Shimabukuro's drive to continued learning and improvement. He sought to add to his skills, testing himself, and to then pass the knowledge on. The information he possessed and the drive he sought to instill in us changed us as we learned and practiced."
-John Mills, founder of Mills Seito Family Dojo and instructor of karate-do, Okinawa kobujutsu, iaijutsu, and jojutsu

"It is here for the interested martial artist, for the iaido practitioner/enthusiast: Flashing Steel, 25th Anniversary Edition! With vast expertise and high skill, the beautiful art of Eishin-ryu swordsmanship is presented in detail by the late Masayuki Shimabukuro and Mr. Leonard Pellman. This comprehensive volume speaks for itself with its quality, thoroughness, and in-depth photographs and detailed techniques. I encourage all iaido practitioners, expert and novice alike, to obtain this awesome text for solid reference and their personal library."
-Sterling Moore, karate instructor, iaido practitioner, Samurai jujutsu instructor, and founder of Warrior Quest and Fitness
