Re: Yamaoka Tesshu

I'd really recommend Karl Friday's Legacies of the Sword or Katori Shinto-Ryu: Warrior Tradition.

These are both well written books by accomplished practitioners and do a very good job of conveying a sense for what it means to belong to a ryu-ha.

I don't read anything by Stevens.
