True Path of the Ninja is a translation of Natori Masatake's Shoninki, the most in-depth instruction manual on the art of ninjutsu. For centuries, the training of a ninja was considered to be so sacrosanct that it could only be passed orally from teacher to student. Natori broke from this tradition fearing that the art would be lost in the mist of time. Natori's instructions and advice, written three centuries ago, includes how the ninja can survive in the wilderness, how to deceive the enemy while collecting intelligence, methods of breaking an entering for theft or assassination, and even how to weave a protective spell. True Path of the Ninja is a rare historical document that debunks some of Hollywood's myths about ninjas, confirms others, and creates new mysteries for historians to ponder. For anyone interested in the dark arts of ninjutsu, this book is a vital link to the historical, practical, and mystical world of the ninja. As a bonus feature, this book also includes the first written record of the oral tradition known as "Defense Against a Shinobi."

Antony Cummins is the founder of the Historical Ninjutsu Research Team, which has previously published the first two manuals in its ninja series, The Book of the Ninja being the last in the trilogy. Antony also works as the head of Urban Canyon Films to produce high-end documentaries on Japan, which are being distributed by National Geographic. He has been recognised by peers as a leading expert in the discovery of military arts of medieval Japan.
