Nearly 400 years ago a Samurai of great renown… Miyamoto Musashi… revealed the techniques and philosophy of the Samurai warrior, in The Book of Five Rings. Maeda Brand presents their Five Rings series rash guards, illustrating the principles of the Book of Five Rings in a series of six, exclusive original Toby Newell designed rash guards. Follow the journey of our Samurai Hero from young neophyte to fearless Samurai Warrior, destined and determined to find the ultimate power within.
The Musashi Rash Guard is the Sixth in the series. Our Hero faces his greatest challenge yet. At the end of his path, guarded by a great and powerful Dragon, sits the Cherry Blossom tree, a symbol of the fragility and beauty of life, of our ultimate mortality. On the back, our Hero has defeated the dragon, and in doing so, he has become one with it, and a thing greater than himself. He has become the dragon, and achieved immortality in the history of the Samurai Warrior. “There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself.” – Miyamoto Musashi
