*********************************

“Correct strategies must be developed by methods that enable the warlord to bring about the implementation of his true beliefs. it does not matter how he does this, he must, however; make sure that his own house is protected before going to battle.”

“Going into battle means that all preparations are in place and effort can minimized by using a primary tool of war – DECEPTION.”

“Enemies must never see you in direct motion (such as coming at them) Enemies must never sense your actions.”

“In war it is essential to make the enemy think one thing while you deliver a strike from another direction. It is essential to keep the enemy off balance.”

“Destroy your enemy in anyway that you can, but never forget that he many have resources as well and may be prepared for you attack.”

“Never think that he is incapable of destroying you, when you let ego set, you are not seeing a clear picture and the image is disrupted. Keep a clear mind of the whole picture and act accordingly.”

(my personal interpretations and research taken from Sun Tzu’s book; (Art of War)

I hope that these words from Sun Tzu can help you on your journey of the arts. be Safe my friends.

*********************************

“If warriors under your command follow your instructions you will have great success. Reward them well and reward them equally.”

“If they cannot be trusted with you, than for certain they cannot be trusted among your enemies. If you permit them to remain in your presence, they might rush to the other side and reveal your plans. Do not take this chance. War does not permit faltering personal belief.”

“Men who do not follow instructions can never lead as commanders. They serve no purpose other than to use up valuable resources and create dissension,…DISPOSE OF THEM!”

“Compassion must be reserved for those who truly need it. Never try to win someone over by changing your strategy in hopes of befriending them, hope is nothing more than wishful thinking and must be avoided at all cost,…..It changes your focus and creates false friends who are worse than your enemies.”
