The Gaze in Strategy

IMG_2032

 

The gaze should be large and broad. This is the twofold gaze “Perception and Sight”. Perception is strong and sight is week.

In strategy it is important to see distant things as if they were close and to take a distanced view of close things. it is important in strategy to know the enemy’s sword and not to be distracted by¬†insignificant movements of his sword. You must study this. The gaze is the same for single combat and for large-scale strategy.

Generally I dislike fixedness in both long swords and hands. Fixedness means a dead hand. Pliability is a living hand. You must bear this in mind.
