This authoritative and enlightening version of Miyamoto Musashirs"s classic on confrontation and strategy is translated and annotated by a modern martial arts master. Kenji Tokistu has spent most of his life researching the legendary samurai swordsman and his works.

While there are several versions ofThe Book of Five Ringsedited by martial artists, Tokisturs"s is by far the most extensively researched, the clearest, and the most packed with valuable insights from a martial arts perspective.
