Along with Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings is considered to be one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction.
For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowessand it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life.

6. Essentials of the Fist – Ancient Martial Arts Training Principles: Interpretation of a 400 years old Ming Dynasty Fist manual
Author: by Jack Chen
Jack Chen (April 20, 2020)
“Jixiao Xinshu” is a comprehensive military warfare manual, written by Ming Dynasty General Qi Jiguang in 1560. It consisted of chapters on Spear fighting, Archery, terrain, troops formation etc… One of the chapters is “Quanjing Jieyao”, which contains 32 unarmed fighting stances for soldiers’ training.
There has been multiple attempts by various people to translate this ancient Chinese Fist manual. The ones which I’ve read are usually translating them literally. In order to make the translation & interpretation more meaningful, I’ve seeked to discover the core principles behind each of these 32 unarmed fighting stances.
In this book, you’ll see how these principles can be applied to any martial arts style, or any weapon. By training in these 32 martial principles, it will provide a complete & holistic training for a warrior, medieval or modern. I believe that my work in this book will help you in advancing your martial arts practice, no matter which fighting style you’re from.

In “A Book of Five Rings,” Miyamoto Musashi takes the reader into a world filled to the brim with devotion, self-respect, discipline, honesty and purity of thought. Written originally for warriors and samurai in a completely different time and culture, Musashi’s book provides a remarkable source of inspiration for self-development today.
His teachings are concise and to the point. He uses phrases like “you must understand this” and “you must practice diligently” and explains only general, but unquestionable and fundamental, concepts of the Way of the Warrior. While some of his guidelines are are not directly applicable in our time and age, those about striving to achieve improvement on the inside as well as the outside couldn’t be more on target.
Taken literally this book is about how to become an efficient, albeit enlightened, killer. It’s value comes from reading between the lines-lines which speak volumes.
