<Qoute> Shinmen Musashi No Kami Fujiwara No Genshin, or as he is commonly known Miyamoto Musashi, was born in the village called Miyamoto in the province Mimasaka in 1584. "Musashi" is the name of an area south-west of Tokyo, and the appellation "No Kami" means noble person of the area, while "Fujiwara" is the name of a noble family foremost in Japan over a thousand years ago.

Musashi's ancestors were a branch of the powerful Harima clan in Kyushu, the souther island of Japan. Hirada Shokan, his grandfather, was a retainer of Shinmen Iga No Kami Sudeshige, the lord of Takeyama castle.<unquote>

Btw I'm wondering what this has to do with the principles of JKD? :-p

I thought this has to do with the book of 5 rings, etc...

Actually, it has to do with a comment made by MAGon to me in another thread a while back.

Jeez! I'd forgotten this thread! Somebody resurrected it?
Chen, I'd totally forgotten I owed you Musashi's name late in life. I think one of the guys might've gotten it right in one of the posts, but I have doubts because I remember being struck by how different from the original the one he was using at the time of his death was. Problem is, I can't find my copy of the "Go Rin No Sho", darn it!! It was to be found in the prologue.
I'll keep looking.

If I remember right, the name he signed Gorin-no-Sho was "Shimmen-Musashi-no-Kami-Fujiwara-no-Genshin". Not 100% sure though, because I currently live far from home (thus from my library, thus from my Gorin-no-sho). I think Miyamoto was the name of the village where he grew up, and Shimmen the name of a daimyo who allowed him to use it as his own, as a sign of respect and admiration. Can't remember about the rest.
