Any opinions on jiu jitsu in South Gate, CA?

not reall a bokken book but one of the great classics and must reads in the field of the Japanese sword arts
The book of five rings by Myamoto Musashi.
it teaches you a lot about stances, guards, ways to hold the sword etc.
e.g. one of the greatest lessons I took from it is that a true master must master the sword with the same ease with one hand as with both.
Great stuff and great readings from the greatest classical sword master.
