Below are books written by Musashi, and books about the legendary swordsman. Some fictitious books on Musashi are included too. The void is an outlier from the rest, describing consciousness, the greatest weapon a warrior can wield; present mind in the moment of battle.

Each book focuses on a different element of combat. Musashi believed combat is a mental battle as much as a physical battle. There are few warriors left alive today. War is slowly becoming a relic of the past. Human technology is too powerful to wage war — nearly every 1st world country has enough fire-power to send the world back to the dark ages.

Instead of the battlefield, combat occurs in business and organized competition. Regardless of whether your fights are life or death, or, a negation for a ten-thousand dollar raise in your field of work, your mind needs to perform gracefully to achieve the means to your end.

Whatever end you chase. site Hardcover Paperback. The lone Samurai is a book about Musashi — as much as history permits us to know. Musashi was a wandering Ronin, a samurai without a master, traveling between provinces, seeking duels, testing his skill and title as the greatest swordsman to ever live.

Some trivial information exists, like, Musashi having eczema. The battle themselves of least importance, while his philosophy of life retaining the object of focus.

However, you can become a master of strategy by training alone with a sword, so that you can understand the enemy's stratagems, his strength and resources, and come to appreciate how to apply strategy to beat ten thousand enemies.

The dependence of location according to the Go Rin No Sho is crucial. You must be in a place where man-made objects such as buildings, towers, castles, and such do not obstruct your view, as well as facing or standing in a position where the sun or moon does not affect your vision.

This is purely so that your vision is focused on nothing but the enemy, and thus there is more concentration upon the enemy's stratagems.

Musashi also seems to note the age old strategy of the High Ground : You must look down on the enemy, and take up your attitude on slightly higher places. Other kinds of tactics which of Musashi tells are way of ensuring that the enemy is at a disadvantage.

Forcing yourself on the non-dominant side of a trooper is one way because the left side is difficult for a right-handed soldier.

Other disadvantages, such as forcing enemies into footholds, swamps, ditches, and other difficult terrain, force the enemy to be uncertain of his situation. These things cannot be clearly explained in words. You must research what is written here.

In these three ways of forestalling, you must judge the situation. This does not mean that you always attack first; but if the enemy attacks first you can lead him around.

In strategy, you have effectively won when you forestall the enemy, so you must train well to attain this. Ken No Sen Attacking is the most obvious method of forestalling an enemy because a head-on collision forces both parties to a standstill.

Although it is not mentioned, Musashi must have been well aware that this method would also be the most likely to have a higher death count than the others due to the sheer mass of enemies because more than one enemy could then attack a single soldier or trooper. As the name suggests, Tai No Sen Waiting for the Initiative is invented for very opportunistic and decided battles between parties.

The main idea being to feign weakness as to open a weak spot, or Achilles' heel , in the opposing force, and then regrouping to exploit such a hole by attacking deep within the enemy's party. Although it is not mentioned, this would most likely be to kill the officer of the highest rank as an attempt to remove the tactical centre of a group of soldiers.

A method particularly useful for Musashi or others, if attacking a general directly would signal the end of the battle upon his defeat.

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. Musashi admits himself that this is a difficult thing to explain.

Although there are other methods, they are mostly situational methods relating to the crossing of rough terrain, and battling within such rough terrain.

Although it spreads over two or more paragraphs, most information is common sense, relating to caution and avoidance of such situations. The idea of timing, as with singular battles, is known as the most important part of attacking next to the skill of participants. However, the type of timing in this instance is somewhat different from the timing noted in The Ground Book since this variety of timing requires looking at the various physical factors which affect an enemy during battle, such as determining if strength is waning or rising within a group of troopers.

The idea of treading down the sword is a very simple technique.

Squashing an enemy's attack before it starts by using a form of charging and then attacking under the veil of gunpowder smoke, and arrow fire, the initial attacks used when starting battles can be highly effective. Individually, it refers to attacking the enemy's sword, breaking it, removing it from play, and a technique of controlling it through direct blade on blade contact.

Just as Musashi mentions in his philosophical style, there is a cause for a collapse. As there is collapse within an enemy, such as waning in his numbers, Musashi notes that one must observe such events and use them to advantage. He notes that an enemy's formation can fall if they lose rhythm. It was known that in such battles, drummers drummed a tune for their other fellow soldiers to march to; and, if the rhythm was lost, it led to a "collapse when their rhythm becomes deranged".

The Book of Wind[ edit ] Whereas most of the information given in the previous books is useful in such a way that it could still be applicable today, this book is primarily concerned with the specific details about other strategies that existed at the time. All man are the same except for their belief in their own selves, regardless of what others may think of them.

Do not sleep under a roof. Carry no money or food. Go alone to places frightening to the common brand of men. Become a criminal of purpose. Be put in jail, and extricate yourself by your own wisdom. If you master the principles of sword-fencing, when you freely beat one man, you beat any man in the world. The spirit of defeating a man is the same for ten million men. Musashi was a wandering Ronin, a samurai without a master, traveling between provinces, seeking duels, testing his skill and title as the greatest swordsman to ever live.

Some trivial information exists, like, Musashi having eczema. The battle themselves of least importance, while his philosophy of life retaining the object of focus.

Musashi and Takuan both believed that the great mistake was being slowed or rendered immobile by what one sees, hears, feels, or thinks Your real intent should be not to die with weapons uselessly worn at your side. Musashi could teach his techniques and give advice, but in the end each disciple was required to assess his own strength, find his own Way, and make that Way truly his own.

Seven in total. Musashi is a massive book.Following the single way of the sword and performing a strike such as this is known as the Chance-Opening Blow.

Choosing a warriors life than that of a teacher. The references to the elements left me scratching my head. Everything exists. If you diligently train yourself, you will be able to increase the overall force of the technique's impact. Each book focuses on a different element of combat. Notify me of new posts by email. This means cutting quickly with hands, body, and legs.

The character of Miyamoto Musashi is as bland as a computer too.
