For the samurai, a walk is more than a method of transport. The walk is a meditation, in itself. In the daily practice of the warrior, the walk is an, art-a martial art!
Every step of the samurai warrior is a beating of time! Each step is a preparation for the fight. Even when the Japanese warrior is not fighting, he is always in perfect contemplation for it.

Every millisecond is crucial to the next move. Ever in contemplation. Ever in meditation. There is a silent beat to the samurai’s tune!
