      Written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life, the book analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. Right Side Left Side The five attitudes of swordsmanship are referred to as the five classifications of areas for attack on the human body. Feint a thrust or cut, or make the enemy think you are going to close with him, and when he is confused you can easily win. It goes into a broader scope in terms of hints as to assess a situation, as well as specific situational instructions. Students of Japanese literature particularly contemporary strategy literature may get much more out of it than other readers.

      Albeit very confusing, the idea of Tai Tai No Sen is circumventing an ambush or quick attack from the enemy by taking the initiative and attacking in full force. After that I studied morning and evening searching for the principle, and came to realise the Way of strategy when I was fifty. What is translated into the word "ring" can also be translated into "spheres" which I think is a more appropriate translation. Knowledge is not the way.

      Ideas must be attached to because they are not grasped by action. By moving your body first and then that of your sword, you will be able to strike powerfully and broadly with a movement that seems to reflect the natural flow of water. One of Japan's great samurai sword masters penned in decisive, unfaltering terms this certain path to victory, and like Sun Tzu's The Art of War it is applicable not only on the battlefield but also in all forms of competition. His latest novel Faith In Every Footstep is now available.
