Considered the primary source-text of old-style Okinawan martial arts, the “Seven Virtues of Martial Arts” are admired for their straightforward advice. Handwritten in the late 19th century by Matsumura Sokon, the most celebrated ancestor of karate, they are considered the ethical fountain and technical key to understand what can’t be seen.Matsumura himself pointed out that the “Seven Virtues of Martial Arts” were praised by a wise man in an ancient manuscript, a manuscript that has remained obscure and undiscovered ever since. Now the source of this wondrous composition has been discovered and verified. Presented and explained here for the first time, it is not only the source of Matsumura’s “Seven Virtues of Martial Arts”. In fact: it is the original meaning of martial arts per se.NOTE: This is the updated version of "King Wu Once Buckled on his Armor," with a new title and the text spelling overworked.
