Miyamoto Musashi, arguably Japan’s most famous warrior, needs no introduction. Martial arts enthusiasts from all over the world have heard of his life and feats and many have read Gorin no Sho, a.k.a. The Book of Five Rings, which has been translated into several foreign languages. Musashi however wrote a few more treatises that people outside Japan may be unaware of. The following is a list of Musashi’s writings:
– Heidōkyō 『兵道鏡』 written in 1605.
– Heihō Kakitsuke 『兵法書付』 achieved in 1638. This text is little-known, even in Japan.
