Musashi Miyamoto

“Perceive that which cannot be seen with the eye.” – Musashi Miyamoto

Musashi Miyamoto was a Japanese swordsman of the 1600’s. Musashi was a Rōnin who became renowned through stories of his unique double-bladed swordsmanship and undefeated record in his 61 duels. (next is 33 by Itō Ittōsai). Myamoto Musashi authored The Book of Five Rings and has had many books and novels written about his life, among them my personal favorite book ‘Musashi’ by Eiji Yoshikawa.
