Budo Ryu: School of the Warrior Way.

Takuan Soho transmission on Kenjutsu

“The art of the sword consists of never being concerned with victory or defeat, with strength or weakness, of not moving one step forward, nor one step backward, or the enemy not seeing me and my not seeing the enemy. Penetrating to that which is fundamental before the separation of heaven and earth where even yin and yang cannot reach, one instantly attains proficiency in the art.”
– Takuan Sōhō (沢庵 宗彭; 1573 – 1645)
