Bujutsu, or the combative arts of Japan, evolved amid the incessant warfare of medieval Japan. They provided the warrior with the technical and psychological training that prepared him to use his weapons in actual combat. "Classical Bujutsu" describes sixteen major forms of bujutsu, and emphasizes the intensely practical nature of these martial arts. Donn F. Draeger was a U.S. Marine Corps officer and a historian of martial arts disciplines, in which he held a variety of expert ranks and teaching licenses. He was technical director of the magazine Martial Arts International and author of many books on the fighting arts of Asia. He died in 1982.
