MUTO (No Sword) AND A MAN WITH A STICK:

Muto, however, goes well beyond technical application and is not about technique, but more a state of mind. When one has reached the state of No Sword (Muto), one does not need a sword. Yagyu Munenori, a famous seventeenth century swordsman describes some of the aspects of Muto Tori in the following:

“If you can adopt as your sword even the one you take from your opponent when you do not have one, shouldn’t you be able to make use of whatever else you may have on hand? Even with a fan, you should be able to defeat an opponent equipped with a sword. No-sword means the readiness to do this.”
