Samurai Strategies for Fencers

This book will transform your understanding of fencing—and improve the way you actually fence.

If you think you know fencing, it’s time to read this book, which holds the distilled essence of East Asian strategy. It’s different, but practical.

Western writings focus on techniques and their combination into tactics. The Samurai texts assume that you know techniques and tactics. They focus on strategy.

Sun Tzu’s classic, The Art of War, famously teaches:
If you know yourself, and know your opponent, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself, and not your opponent, then for every victory, you will suffer a defeat. If you know neither yourself nor your opponent, you will succumb in every battle.
This focus on your opponents and their psychology  is not present in most Western fencing texts.

What you will learn in Samurai Strategies for Fencers is based on centuries of authentic Samurai experience and the insights of modern martial arts practitioners.
