Yagyu Munenori ✓ 4 Summary

It is no accident that the age of the great Japanese swordsmen coincided with that country's transition from a loose group of warrior states to a stable nation As you will discover in The Sword the Mind this pivotal seventeenth century how to guide for the swordsman is also a penetrating philosophical and psychological treatise on strategy Yagyu Munenori's step by step instructions for positioning striking with one and two swords and defending oneself against an opponent can be. I picked this book up some time ago out of curiosity It is about techniues and philosophy from the Shinkage school of swordsmanship This book itself was translated by Hiroaki Sato the original was written by Yagyu Munenori in the 17th century It has three basic categories 1 Historical context and introduction written by Hiroaki Sato along with translation footnotes 2 A list of techniues with instructions and illustrations created by the historical swordsmen 3 Philosophy school principles mental techniues anecdotes to illustrate a point etc also created by the historical swordsmen It s interesting stuff I enjoyed reading the historical context because I like reading about history and having such context for the latter two categories is indeed helpful for understanding them The list of techniues and their illustrations are obviously most useful for those who will learn and practice them Even then this is not something that can teach swordsmanship on its own Indeed Yagyu Munenori freuently mentions how difficult it is just to describe the techniues and also writes that something will be transmitted verbally because a teacher is necessary Even then the techniues themselves are only the first stage Once the student has achieved the proper mindset through training with them he no longer has any use for them The meat of the matter from my perspective at least is the third category the philosophy behind the techniues that was crafted by the men in their historical context A summary would be misleading and insufficient but in a nutshell it advocates an empty mind This does not one that is lacking anything but rather one that is not cluttered A mind that is free to move around and indeed does move around This is the Zen influence which both the author and the translator make note of It is freuently stated how important it is that a mind not tarry or become fixated on any given thing including a desire not to be fixated Interestingly Yagyu Munenori states that Confucians are stuck at the beginner level because of their fixation on kei which Hiroaki Sato translates as respect or reverence I enjoyed reading this and I found it useful but it is too far outside my usual grading rubric for a proper gradeTrickster Eric Novels gives The Sword the Mind The Classic Japanese Treatise on Swordsmanship and Tactics a
