Fifth Prohibition, Inconsistency
"(Those) studying the sword should have a righteous hero’s heart. (He or she) must be persistent, courageous. Confucius said, “A man without consistency can not be a doctor.” Likewise (for those) studying the sword! Do not say (your) body is weak and so lack courage. Do not say (you) are dull-witted and cease (training). Do not say complications cause (you) to give up halfway. Do not let circumstances cause you to break off. In all things under heaven, a really determined person will find a solution. The teachings of the sages, are not trying to fool you. Those willing to learn, will repeat the teaching."
