The Sword of No Sword

Life of the Master Warrior : Tesshu

The Sword of No Sword

This book is about Tesshu Yamaoko, who was the headmaster of the Muto Ryu of Swordmanship, a follower of Zen Buddahism and known for his Calligraphy.


My own interests do not go towards the study of sword, but this biography are interesting reading. His life, the examples of his calligraphy outstanding, and his writings are compelling. It was worth the time to read this.


I have included some examples of the photos from the book.
