It's been a dream of mine to publish a book for Children on the Ninja. With your help, this dream could become a reality.
Over the last year, I have been working with Ninjutsu practitioner and illustrator Esteban Diaz from Argentina on an exciting new publication. My book is in rhyme and has wonderful illustrations to accompany this fun and educational story.
The book will be in full colour with a hardback cover.
Children love the ninja and I believe through the medium of this wonderully illustrated picture book with it's humorous story line, the art of the ninja can be enjoyed by children throughout the world.
The story follows a young ninja from the hidden door village on his first secret mission. He utilises many aspects of authentic ninjutsu techniques from the Togakure Ryu ( hidden door school ) yet comes across many challenges while developing a bad cold.
From these hardships, he learns the importance of enduring, persevering, and never giving up!
Will he succeed? Or, will he fail his mission?
It is my hope that this may also lead children to a Ninjutsu School under the sanction of Dr Masaaki Hatsumi to help them develop essential life skills for a positive future.
For current students of ninjutsu both young and old, you will be able to recognise and enjoy the various lessons and concepts in this book that have been transmitted by Bujinkan Dojo Dr Masaaki Hatsumi.
I Sincerely thank you for any support you give towards this book project. This book is suitable for all ages and everyone interested in the ninja and ninjutsu. I am positive that this book will leave a smile on the faces of those who read it and/or have it read to them.
I need your help for this project to be brought to life!
My goal is to achieve the total within 2-4 months to commence the publishing process as soon as possible.
