Chinese Swordsmanship - the Art of the Jian - Trans by Scott Rodell



莊子曰:
夫為劍者,示之以虛,
開之以利,後之以發,
先之以至。
Zhuangzi Said:
"The art of the jian is to 
deliberately 
expose a weakness, 
giving the enemy the 
impression they have 
the opportunity to attack. 
Your hand moves after the enemy, 
but your jian strikes first."
Trans. Scott M. Rodell
