"At last! The martial arts have long awaited a book on genuine "iaido," It could only have been done properly through a Japanese-American collaboration like this--Master Shimabukuro, with his unparalleled expertise and classical training, and Mr. Pellman, who has translated this unique philosophy into understandable Western terms. "Flashing Steel" will be a true milestone of the art."<br>--Alfonso Gomez, Martial Arts Director, University of California, San Diego, CA <br>"Why would a t'ai chi ch'uan student and instructor for over twenty years want to take up "iaido?" I was curious, initially, to explore a different tradition and approach. But I have been captivated by the experience and insights "iaido "offers. It begins with a stillness, an upright posture, breath natural, mind calm. Then the draw: the bright flash and hiss of steel that reveal the subtle qualities of the substantial (sword) cutting through the insubstantial (air). I encourage others--newcomers or current "iaido "enthusiasts--to acquire this remarkable took and explore the mysteries of "iaido.""<br>--Michael Conniry, T'ai Chi Ch'uan Instructor, Grossmont/Cuyumaca Colleges, El Cajon, CA
