Hi, I'm Martial Arts Master Bill FitzPatrick
was history's greatest swordsman.
Musashi trained for years and was well tested in battle
But this wasn't enough for Musashi
Musashi wanted to be considered the BEST -
The most FEARED
The most RESPECTED
So, he had to take on the man
who was - at that time -
considered the most famous -
the most feared swordsman
in ALL Japan,
Musashi went to Kyoto to challenge him.
At that time,
It was CUSTOMARY for
the senior students to fight battles for their head teacher,
NO, I don't think so
That wasn't for Musashi
Musashi didn't want to fight any FLUNKIES
Musashi wanted to duel with the MASTER himself.
So he went to the town square
and challenged Seijuro openly and directly.
In other words,
Musashi got in Seijuro's FACE
The duel was to happen according to tradition-
with full etiquette and dress.
Seijuro Sensei arrived at dawn in full gear.
Musashi was not there.
As the minutes
Then an hour passed,
Seijuro became visibly and increasingly enraged.
At the last moment,
just before Seijuro was about to leave,
Yelling and screaming that
Musashi was a fraud and a coward
Musashi stepped out of the crowd dressed as a PEASANT.
Seijuro was even MORE angered at Musashi
His appearance was a MOCKERY and a joke,
and IF POSSIBLE
to make matters even WORSE
the young FOOL disrespected him by only carrying a
wooden practice sword!
Seijuro stepped forward in anger and slashed downward at Musashi.
Musashi lifted his wooden practice sword into Seijuro's chin killing him instantly.
