Yamaoka Tessshu

Do not speak of others faults;
do not boast about yourself;
never expect anything for services rendered;
never forget kindnesses received.

No-enemy - You have arrived

Mu-to >  no -sword.

The Correct transmission of the ancients.

Using thought to analyse reality is illusion
If Preoccupied with victory and defeat, all will be lost.
The secret of swordsmanship?
Lightning slashes  the spring wind

Basic training:
Uchi-komi: "attack training"  for at least 3 years."Wood cutting" - makes you strong and stable.

Advanced træning:
Seigan: Continuously multi-attack. Tachi-kiri.
Over periods of hours, days or week -

1st day: Nake making 1400 exercises, with 10 uke.

Are you slacking off? You must try harder!

2nd and 3 days harder!

Are You ready?  Sensei say - Stop - when he see that you are was done. The secret is that the mind has no limits.

Practices the first katas for at least 3 years.

Nakano was suggested by Tesshu to make seppuku (ritual suicide)  as that was the only honorable alternative. When he was ready to so so, Tesshu yelled, "Waite! Since you have made the necessary preparations, I'll hold your life in trust for a while".

KATSUJIN-KEN - The life giving sword.
