The teachings of Oxen and Horses

this strategy is exactly opposite of the Wolves and Foxes strategy as the Ox and Horse have to walk among the men.

If your lord wants you to deliver a message, he will choose a shinobi that will be able to walk among the commoners and blend in so that he / she does not get caught.

another technique to understand with this strategy is a shinobi will meet another at a certain place in public and then they together will travel to the designated area to carry out the mission. This thought goes hand in hand with the way that horses and ox are lead by their masters.

(there are many interpretations of this book, this is my personal interpretations; I hope that this can help you in your training.)


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