Japan's business executives have long applied Musashi's teachings to their business methods. This book - the original life-guide by Japan's greatest warrior - means you can do so too. Written in 1645 by the most famous and unconquerable of all samurai, A Book of Five Rings is the classic guide to kendo swordmanship and a distillation of the philosophies of Zen, Shinto and Confucius. The West is now discovering what the Japanese have always known: that the ancient wisdom of the Samurai Way provides a strategy for decision and action in all areas of life - the home, the battleground and the boardroom.

The rules of combat have changed
I believe even the fastest kick or punch can come short in dealing with a premeditated terrorist committed to killing you and destroying innocent lives. It is rare to win and survive when entangled with several gun and knife wielding villains lurking in the dark determined to rob, rape, and take your life. Remember, even the most barbaric and beastly character can be subdued and put to rest if you know the right way. I also believe being ignorant and calloused causes pride, which in turn causes division, and eventually animosity.
In the animal kingdom, where the survival of the fittest rules, there are no predators that can survive without adapting to ambush attack. The most important assets enacted by instinct are: patience, vigilance, distraction, agility, speed, no hesitancy, full commitment, and striking the vitals. This should be the methodology and the anatomy of any successful defense where only silent assassins can prevail, and when other alternative means of defense are questionable, especially in a crime infested environment where there are no rules but to remain alive.
You will fight how you train. That’s why Fighter’s Fact Book 2 presents a critical look at training and real-world applications. When you’ve mastered the skills taught in this book, you will truly be ready to defend yourself in some of the most desperate situations imaginable.
You will learn how to defend yourself against multiple assailants, violent dogs, and knife attacks. You’ll learn how to contend with close-quarters attacks and adversaries who are impervious to pain. You’ll also get no-nonsense instruction on fighting wounded and the justified use of extreme tactics.
