Yeah. I know. Just what the Interwebs need. Another blog. This won't be another "Hey, look what my cat horked up this morning!" kind of blog. This will be a blog strictly for Martial Arts, specifically (but not limited to) the Chito Ryu style of Karate, as originally taught by Tsuyoshi Chitose.
Mushin (or mushin no shin) is a mental state into which very highly trained martial artists are said to enter during combat. It roughly translates to "no-mindedness". You may or may not remember this topic of discussion in "The Last Samurai", where Shin Koyamada's character explains to Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise) what he needs to do in order to get past the level boss and save the princess (or something).
Don't remember? Check here.
This is what I am searching for in my martial arts studies. If you're serious about martial arts, you're possibly searching for it as well. Let's look together, shall we?
