Miyamoto Musashi grew up during a period of great social change in Japan, the
late 1500's and early 1600's. For centuries, feudal Japanese warlords had battled over wealth,
power, and land. Just before the birth of Musashi, the rise of the Shogun united the country for the
first time in centuries, suppressing the internal conflicts. The Shogun and his successors imposed
strict bureaucratic rules throughout Japan. With the drawing down of armed conflicts, many samurai,
as leaders and soldiers of the feudal warlords became ronin ('wave men') as the armies were
disbanded. The name was an apt one, tossed about on the waves of fate, these masterless
samurai roamed the country with nothing but their two swords stuck in their belts.
