Abstract | Contents
from cover Charging into battle, your only objective is to win! Strategies for victory have been studied for thousands of years, but not until the advent of the Japanese samurai did strategy become an exact science. The Way and the Power reveals the two sides of Japanese strategy, detailing many aspects of this science, including in-yo, michi, ki aiki, maai, hyoshi, minari, and sutemi, and their use in battle and in the world of business. An expert instructor of kenjutsu and aikijutsu, Fredrick Lovret also includes a pronunciation guide for the many Japanese terms used in the text, and an analysis of famous Western battles and their Oriental strategic analogies. Learn the strategies that have worked best for generations of winners. Whether entering battle against a military foe, a business competitor, or a kenjutsu master, be prepared for success.
