Art of WAR

April 24, 2009

Here’s a little bit of Sun (Tzu) to brighten up the days this competition weekend.

Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.

Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

Invincibility lies in the defence; the possibility of victory in the attack.

What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.

Being unconquerable lies with yourself; being conquerable lies with your enemy.

When torrential water tosses boulders, it is because of its momentum. When the strike of a hawk breaks the body of its prey, it is because of timing.

You have to believe in yourself.

Prohibit the taking of omens, and do away with superstitious doubts. Then, until death itself comes, no calamity need be feared.

    Good stuff! I had a chat with Tomari-san last night about competition tactics. The result? Don’t worry about my opponent because it is out of my control. Just worry about myself and my game.

    I have to jog to keep the weight off at the moment and I am constantly doing the old “positive thinking” thing.
