Masaaki Hatsumi: Dojo Giga | Earth


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

The subject of Masaaki Hatsumi: Dojo Giga | Earth is 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 as we experience the paintings and commentary of Bujinkan Soke, Masaaki Hatsumi, in the second book of our three volume series, Earth.

When will Earth be available?

Most photography and writing for Earth is completed. Next is final editing and translations. For updates on print date, please watch this page and stay connected with us on social media.

A Chat at Kasumian

In June of 2020, Paul Masse and I chatted at Kasumian (in Noda City) about Hatsumi Sensei’s new art book, Masaaki Hatsumi: Dojo Giga | Earth. One of the paintings which will appear in Earth is titled meisō 瞑想, (which means meditation). Masaaki Hatsumi: Art Prints also features this painting. Please watch our discussion of this painting, on our Art Prints page, here: https://dojoartbooks.com/artprints/
