The sword and the body must be as one wielding a sword should be as natural as being alive to embrace the sword that lives within every thru warrior the stances are its walk the rhythm of the swing its speech and honor is the breath and blood of the sword. Nampo is about more than mere Bushido it contains the essence of the warrior’s art, its spiritual framework that makes even a common bokken a deadly weapon in users hands, the ability to project Ki by force of will to cause a phenomenal effect in physical reality so that objects that user touches convey the lethal edge of an actual bladed weapon. This is done by charging the wood up with chi, concentrating and letting your spirit flow through you and thinking of the wood as an extension of your own body. The advance levels of nampo also allow user to control their opponents by manipulating their thoughts and actions, and with people lacking the training and discipline of a martial artist it is simplicity itself to invade their minds and anticipate their actions. It is all about mastering your own inner Ki and controlling things from within so that events taking place around you orbit your solar center, much like gravity affects the motions of the planets and stars only working from an invisible connection that was the wellspring of your karma.
The ability to size up a battlefield and plot in advance what maneuvers will be needed in order to triumph is part of the discipline of Nampo. User can mask theirs, and other peoples' presence from those around them. User manifests a presence that will not attract the notice of ordinary folk who lacked psychic sensitivity and only believed in what their baser senses told them of their surroundings.
Mortal eyes do not register user’s passage; hardly anyone will even recall the user because they slide through their thoughts as intangibly as smoke upon glass. User is not there for all that they could tell because they do not perceive the reality that would allow for such things as fields of stealth around which flowed the dull wind of thoughts clouded with the press of untutored emotions.
They do not see user precisely because they can not recognize the power that is users to command by din of birth and long years of intensive personal training.
