Sun Tzu said : "In general, whoever occupies the battleground first and awaits the enemy will be at ease; whoever occupies the battleground afterward and must race to the conflict will be fatigued. Thus one who excels at warfare compels men and is not compelled by other men" (Source: Ralph Sawyer's 7 Military Classics, pg. 166) However, Miyamoto Musashi was known for taking the opposite approach, he was known for arriving late, and making his enemies wait for him. Why did Musashi, who likely read Sun Tzu, contradict Sun Tzu's wisdom? And between Miyamoto Musashi and Sun Tzu, which strategist is correct on this matter?
