Description

The Samurai Mind is a collection of five seminal Japanese texts which together convey the very essence of the traditional samurai warrior ethos. These texts range from the ferocious to the esoteric-with their common thread being the importance of mastering one’s own mind as the key to overcoming opponents. Written from the mid-18th to early 19th century, at a time when the effectiveness of traditional training methods was being called into question, the authors were acknowledged master warriors keen to address a broader audience beyond their circle of students and acolytes. Their aim was to explain their craft to the outside world, and they do so with great insight.
