Musha Shugyo is a ronin's quest for the Mind of the Martial Artist. Use it to name a coherent system of excellence, to train it in yourself, and explain it in others. Use it to organize knowledge and experience, for it is a map, and a journey. Musha Shugyo will assist you in becoming the hero of the adventurer that is your own life.


This "Mind," involves organizing the transformative process of becoming a martial artist. It involves looking at yourself, your life and your theatre, in a different and purposeful way, and having a new Life Value that is powerful and freeing.

It is what you are, not what you have.

Consider: "Our life is what our thoughts make it." - Marcus Aurelius, "Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change." - Buddha, "Believe you can and you're halfway there." - Theodore Roosevelt

Our system shapes and controls your thoughts using :

      • A mnemonic device
      • Visualization
      • Emotion
      • Affirmation
      • Meditation
      • Exercise
      • Explanation or narrative


Our mnemonic trains the seven positions or steps  for a martial artist, and each of these will be explained as we go. Also, to assist in training, lend authority and present a broader foundation I will list books, videos, movies, web sites, whatever I can to make it easier and more fun.
