Scerpts Edit

  • "If one knows only sword technique, one cannot know the true path.... It is that which must be known from the large matters to the small matters, from the shallow matters to the deep matter. [1]
  • "In order for a warrior to follow the path ofHeiho, it is necessary to keep in mind that the essence ofHeiho is to build an indomitable spirit and an iron will; to believe that you cannot fail in doing anything." [2]
  • "From one thing, know ten thousand things. When one learns the principles of Heiho, one will be able to understand all things." [3]
