BOOK ONE is a translation of two secret scrolls and establishes theFundamental Teachingsof a samurai student, revealing the basic traditions of Natori-Ry?. The first scroll,Heika J ?dan,contains 290 lessons that define the baseline for samurai during times of peace, a time which is considered as preparation for war, focusing each student on expanding their own ability and conduct, giving them the mind-set needed for any battles to come.
