Miyamoto Musashi

The true science of martial arts means practicing  them in such a way that they will be useful at any time, and to teach them in such a way that they will be useful in all things.
Miyamoto Musashi

Through the centuries the Samurai wore attached to the left side of his body, his very soul, the Katana and Wakizashi, long and short sword set known as a DAISHO.
Another weapon of the Samurai was the Tanto, a famous knife, which was used to protect his honor to the extent of a ritual suicide. (Harakiri).
The Katana was a fearsome weapon which could be unshealthed with lightnening speed and with devastating effect. Both long and short swords were manufactured as matching sets by craftsmen who blended strength of steel with beautiful curvature of blades and matching fittings.

The joy of living comes from action, from making the attempt, from the effort, not from success.
Sir Francis Chichester

If you can’t share wealth, prosperity and happiness, then you must at least share suffering, pain and death. To destroy in order to create!

Carl William Brown

The real martial artist, as the old Samurai and the true Philospher taught,  should not be afraid of death.  He must follow duty and loyalty, heroic courage, justice and morality.
Carl William Brown

Fare arti marziali non dovrebbe significare solo tirare calci e pugni all’aria per cercare di vincere le proprie paure, anche se questo potrebbe già essere un buon punto di partenza; l’intero allenamento non è che la meticolosa preparazione del guerriero al combattimento, in pratica c’è sempre un conflitto di mezzo, e il vero samurai, abile nella penna così come nella spada, deve prima o poi misurarsi con il suoi nemici, anche i più temibili, compreso la suprema e invincibile maestra di tutte le battaglie, la morte, che inevitabilmente alla fine si fonderà con lui! Fare arti marziali quindi non può essere diverso dallo studiare filosofia, le due cose sono congiunte, e servono alla continua e perenne meditazione. In tutti gli altri casi siamo in presenza di una mera attività fisica, di un semplice passatempo, così come potrebbe essere quello di dedicarsi al ballo, alla corsa, o ad altri sport, compreso quelli agonistici, certamente utili per la mente, per il corpo, e talvolta anche per il portafoglio, ma assolutamente diversi dall’antica pratica delle discipline marziali.
