“Num só Tempo” significa que, depois de “fechar” sobre o inimigo, você o golpeará com a máxima rapidez e objetividade, sem movimentar mais o corpo nem aplacar o espírito, ao mesmo tempo em que perceber a indecisão momentânea do adversário. A sincronização do golpe, lançado sempre antes do inimigo ter-se decidido por recuar, cortar o golpe da sua espada ou fazer um ataque direto, é o que chamo “Num só tempo”. "In One Time" means that, after "closing" on the enemy, you will strike maximum speed and objectivity, without moving the body any more or appeasing the spirit, at the same time in than to perceive the momentary indecision of the adversary. The synchronization of the blow, always launched before the enemy has decided to retreat, cut off the blow of his sword or make a direct attack, that's what I call "At one time." ( Livro dos Cinco Anéis - Miyamoto Musashi )
I did this quick sketch to show my love for who is looking like my villian of the year, Genichiro Ashina, as a young street urchin Genichiro was taken in by the Ashina clan who controlled the region, not only were they the masters of the land, the head of the family Isshin Ashina was a hero to its people, called the sword Saint for his battle prowess Genichiro trained and trained, becoming the best he could be, but it proved not enough for when it came time to defend his land the enemy was just barely pushed back.
Genichiro went on to learn fighting styles that were classed as heresy to protect the land and its people, this man is willing to sacrifice everything for the people who took him in, he would weather any hate or pain people could throw at him just so he could protect the legacy of the family who raised him.
The more I learn about him the more he reminds me of our own hero, Sekiro, the young wolf was found alone on the battlefield and was taken in by a great man and Lord, he too would do anything for the people who took him in, so really, is Genichiro really a bad guy? Or does he just have other things to protect?
