The subject of Heaven was martial virtue. Earth is bloody different...

Masaaki Hatsumi: Dojo Giga | Earth explores Bon'no 煩悩, the Buddhist term for afflictions such as ignorance, rage, and desire, which are the source of man's pointless suffering.

Join us for earthly desires and appetites of the flesh in the second book of our Dojo Giga series, Earth.

Steve: When Earth is available, would you please email me?

Sure! If you subscribe for email updates, I'll email you when the Earth Kickstarter is scheduled. And when our Kickstarter page is live, I'll email you the URL.

Even if you ordered Dojo Art or Heaven or Prints from, I'd like to confirm your email (and your interest in Earth). Please subscribe so I can keep you updated.

A chat about Meditation

At Kasumian (in Noda City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan) Paul Masse and I discussed plans for Masaaki Hatsumi: Dojo Giga | Earth and we talked about Meisō 瞑想, which means "meditation" and is one of the paintings which will appear in Earth.
