The Hyodokyo – The 28 Mirror Ways of Strategy; By Miyamoto Musashi

Soke Tomo-ryu; Anshu Christa Jacobson

This morning I was getting ready, and my daughter asked me why I write a “to-do” list every morning when I drink my coffee. I told her because it helps me stay focused on the things that I need to do. She looked at me and shrugged; then went off to watch Phineas and Ferb.

The only way I feel to achieve constant progression is with the proper strategy. This is not just in war, but if life. Keep in mind I am saying “constant” progression, meaning you are succeeding in one area over a long period of time. To do this, I feel you have to devise the correct strategy and then carry out the smaller tasks so that you can then complete the larger objective.

Everyday I wake up; I make a to-do list. Even if some of the same things that I write on the list were on yesterday’s list; I write again, because today is today and what I need to get done is today; this also is part of understanding the principals of Shibumi-do (下味道).

In 1605 Miyamoto Musashi wrote The Hyodokyo (The Mirror of the Way of Strategy) was Miyamoto Musashi’s first piece of work. These 28 strategies I read and utilize all of the time in my daily objectives in all realms of life. These strategies written by Musashi was when he was between the ages of 21 and 24 (Two copies are extant still in the present day) and was his first written work on strategy, before the Gorin no sho (book of the 5 rings).

Clearly anyone reads this even if they do not have martial training, can understand that these are strategies of war. But a marital artist should read them as strategies of life. As you read them, understand we do not carry a sword, so what is the same meaning of all of the statements in the present day? How can we take these great strategies and apply them today? Everything has meaning, strategy, principals, study them, contemplate on them, and you will find the answer.

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Musashi Part 3

 

“The true science of martial arts means practicing them in such a way that they will be useful at anytime, and to teach them in such a away that they will be useful in all things.” – Miyamoto Musashi


Anshu Christa Jacobson – Musashi Part 2

 

“The primary thing when you take a sword in your hands is you intention to cut the enemy, whatever the means. Whenever you parry, hit, spring, strike or touch the enemy’s sword, you must cut the enemy in the same movement. It is essential to attain this, If you think only of hitting, springing, striking or touching,… you will not be able to actually cut him. – Miyamoto Musashi
