Quote on Samurai tactics

A master tells his student of two samurai:

"At the assigned meeting place two samurai
warriors approach each other as a dark storm gathers. They draw closer and then stop. They stare at each other while the rain pours down and the wind lashes at them. Their swords are drawn, each ready to strike. But neither of them moves. They just stand there in the storm, poised."

"Why do they not move", asks the student.

"Because whoever moves first loses the advantage", replies the teacher.
