Wear light armour - Katchu

Samurai choose to wear only lightweight armor, offensive armor. Defensive armor is heavy and difficult to move in, but light offensive armor gives one the advantage of speed and agility.

These two are completely different attitudes in life, fighting to win, or surviving the attack. Just think back to your last ‘battle’, inner or outer. Did you try to survive or did you go into it head first?

It took me a while to realise that I don’t need to defend myself so often in meetings, I don’t have to be on the back foot. I could and should stand my ground and, with wisdom, move forward.

“You can prevent your opponent from defeating you through defense, but you cannot defeat him without taking the offensive”
