Legendary swordsmen, known for his constant victories, and intelligent battle tactics, rarely defeated.

But....although he was rarely defeated, he was 6'2 and wieghed alot. And most of his opponents were other japanese so....he must have had a major strength and mass advantage.

....yet he was still defeated. A jojutsu staff guy once beat him, and an old man armed with a small iron fan disarmed him. Musashi was, i THINK curious about his defeat, the old man talked of something called Hara-gei or gai i got to look it up.

What is this hara thingy?
