Dátum narodenia: 1571
Dátum úmrtia: 11. máj 1646

Yagyū Munenori was a Japanese swordsman, founder of the Edo branch of Yagyū Shinkage-ryū, which he learned from his father Yagyū "Sekishūsai" Muneyoshi. This was one of two official sword styles patronized by the Tokugawa shogunate . Munenori began his career in the Tokugawa administration as a hatamoto, a direct retainer of the Tokugawa house, and later had his income raised to 10,000 koku, making him a minor fudai daimyō , with landholdings around his ancestral village of Yagyū-zato. He also received the title of Tajima no Kami .

Citáty Yagyū Munenori

„A stroke of the sword that does not hit its target is the sword stroke of death; you reach over it to strike the winning blow.“

—  Yagyū Munenori

A Hereditary Book on the Art of War (1632)
Kontext: A stroke of the sword that does not hit its target is the sword stroke of death; you reach over it to strike the winning blow. Your adversary's initiative having missed its mark, you turn the tables around and get the jump on your adversary.

„Conquering evil, not the opponent, is the essence of swordsmanship.“

—  Yagyū Munenori

As quoted in Behold the Second Horseman (2005), by Joseph Lumpkin, p. 44.

—  Yagyū Munenori
