“I’m taking a self-defense workshop for women this weekend.”

“My wife knows martial arts.”

“What kind of martial arts does she know?”

“I’m not sure. She’s self-taught. She’s Asian, she thinks she’s good at everything Asians are supposed to be good at: martial arts, badminton . . . some people might say she doesn’t know martial arts at all, she’s just violent and crazy.”

The Thousand-Mile Road

Miyamoto Musashi

Step by step walk the thousand-mile road.

Study strategy over the years and achieve the spirit of the warrior. Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men.

— Miyamoto Musashi, The Book Of Five Rings

An elevated spirit is weak and a low spirit is weak. Do not let the enemy see your spirit. — Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings
