There have been various translations made over the years, and it enjoys an audience considerably broader than only that of martial artists and people across East Asia : for instance, some foreign business leaders find its discussion of conflict and taking the advantage to be relevant to their work in a business context. Musashi establishes a "no-nonsense" theme throughout the text. For instance, he repeatedly remarks that technical flourishes are excessive, and contrasts worrying about such things with the principle that all technique is simply a method of cutting down one's opponent.

Descriptions of principles are often followed by admonitions to "investigate this thoroughly" through practice rather than trying to learn them by merely reading.
