Historical Description[]

Japan has a distinguished history of master swordsmen, sometimes described as kensei or 'sword saints.' The best known is Miyamoto Musashi. He won his first duel as a young teenager against an adult samurai and went on to gain a reputation as the deadliest swordsman in Japan. Forgoing questions of honor, he used psychological tricks and unexpected moves to gain every possible edge. Later in life he wrote a treatise on strategy called the Book of Five Rings which is still read today.

Another master swordsman was Tsukahara Bokuden, who lived just before Musashi. As a youth, he wandered Japan seeking out worthy foes to hone his skills against. He supposedly won dozens of duels without ever losing or even sustaining a wound. Eventually he grew tired of fighting off brash young challengers and turned to conflict avoidance, a practice he referred to as his 'no-sword style.' In one famous incident, he tricked a rude samurai into jumping off a boat to duel him on a small island, then grabbed the boatman's pole and rowed away laughing.
