Vulnerability & Invulnerability

“When the warlord is prepared for battle, he is first into the realm of combat and does not back down because of fear and doubt.”

“His fortitude is fixed and his fighting will be done with ease if he understand the way.”

“The simplest way to humble, humiliate and debase your enemy is to cut him off from his supplies. If he is mighty and still comes forward, his avenue of escape will be that more difficult to remain when he cant supply his troops with food.”

“NEVER permit the enemy to know where your attack will be coming from, and never sacrifice one thing that will protect your village,….do his with deception.”

“A large force cannot easily over power a smaller force of the smaller force is more skilled in the arts of war. There are many times that a smaller unit of specially trained soldiers can wreak havoc on the enemy by fighting in the shadows. These hit and fun tactics take a toll on a larger force. By using these methods of war, the warlord can find the weaknesses and strengths in the enemy’s army.”

“In war there are no constants, nothing stays the same, this is the same with war as well as life.”

(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.
