Quote for Today: Taisen Deshimaru


Train the body and develop stamina and endurance. But the spirit of competition and power that presides over them is not good, it reflects a distorted vision of life. The root of the martial arts is not there.

Taisen Deshimaru, quoted in Armed Martial Arts of Japan: Swordsmanship and Archery,  G. Cameron Hurst
