About This Item

This invaluable handbook presents ancient wisdom for contemporary readers - with brilliant new interpretations of the fundamental works of strategy and tactics from the masters of the martial arts.

In the Hereditary Manual of the Martial Arts,for example, Yagyu Munenori, a 16th-century teacher for the Tokugawa shogunate, explores the relationship between Zen philosophy and the mental attitude necessary for successful warfare. In the Miracle of Unmovable Wisdom, Takuan Soho, originally a Buddhist abbot in Kyoto, explores the relationship between sword fighting technique and the path to self-realization. And in Jyoseihi Kendan, Matsura Saizan, the 34th lord of Hizen Hirato, focuses on mental preparation with the note: "the most important part (of the battle) takes place even before you put your hand on the sword."

With these and a dozen more essays on strategy, combat tactics, psychology, leadership, good character, and the exercise of power, Secret Tactics is an indispensable resource for students of Asian culture, martial artists, and corporate executives.

Kazumi Tabata is one of the world's most experience martial arts teachers. He is a Grandmaster (8th-degree black belt) in the Shotokan style of Japanese karate. He established and is Chief Instructor of the North American Karate Federation and the New England Collegiate Karate Conference. He has also trained karate clubs in Europe, Africa, and Bermuda.
