The Book of Five Rings - Free Martial Arts Audio Book

The Book of Five Rings is one of the best-known books focused on martial arts strategy and tactics. This classic was written in the 1600s by Miyamoto Musashi, who is probably the most famous Japanese swordsman of all time. This wiki section allows you to listen to a free audio version of The Book of Five Rings. This audio book is free because it is so old that the book is now in the public domain.

Some of the classic quotes from The Book of Five Rings include "Do nothing that is of no use", "The ultimate aim of martial arts is not having to use them" and "You must understand that there is more than one path to the top of the mountain".

For other free audio books (i.e. The Art of War), please visit the Free Martial Arts Audio Books section.
